This resort is located at the end of the complex (where they have about 3-4 other resorts). Being at the end, it is closest to the beach I would say. As you drive up to the entrance, you pass by a complex that has a store, pharmacy, restaurant and club which is walking distance from the resort. Security is tight there as you pass by different security points at all hours of the night while venturing out. The resort itself has 3 restaurants and 1 - 2 cafeterias. I would say that food at Octopus restaurant is the best out of all the 3 restaurants. I wasn't a big fan of the "cafeteria" style dining options but there are lot of different options to choose from. There is only free wi-fi in the lobby and not your rooms, which is a bummer. You can pay $5/day to have wifi for the day. The swimming pools were big and had a swim up bar which was nice. There are also 2-3 floating bars around the resort so you can really take advantage of the all-inclusive option the resort offers. The staff is very helpful. We asked one guy to show us how to get to town and he offered to take us after his shift was over and showed us around the town of Puerto Plata and even took us to a festival.
Overall, this is a resort that has something for everyone. There are a lot of options for families (shows/entertainment) and couples as well as singles. The only place there is to go is Coco-Bongo which is the club that is walking distance. This resort is mostly for those who want to relax on the beach. There are a few excursions that are offered but we didn't do any because we did most of them in Cabarete (which is where all the excursions and water activities take place).
