Went to DR for a quick get-away to catch up on some sun. However, the rain kinda put a damper on the tanning schedule. January wasnt a good time to run there for guaranteed sun.
Two bedroom villa w/ an extremely large master bedroom w/ a California king-size bed & plenty of closet space. Second bedroom was decent w/ queen size bed & adequate closet space. Living room/dining room/kitchenette was very small but doable for a quick sit down. Kitchenette had a small fridge where u could store drinks, an electric plate, small sink, plates, cups, small pots, coffee maker. No need to bring food to cook because if you have the all inclusive there's restaurants and buffets all around the complex for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and drinks.
Bathroom was pretty large but had a stand up shower that had an open door set up. Small patio area outside the villa so if u wanted to have ur coffee or read a book, its cozy enuf.
I think the food was fairly decent for the price. Intimates is a nice set up for you & significant other. Buffets were pretty decent with all kinds of food. There's something for everyone.
VIP pool area had decent fast food if u were on a tight tanning schedule like I was. Burgers, chicken wings, salads, etc... Premium drinks were ok.
The complex is so big that you actually need a shuttle bus or golf cart, to get different parts of the beaches, restaurants, shows, and stores. All you need to do is have someone dispatch a ride.
Beach was beautiful and clean. The pools and beaches had extra large tanning beds, chairs, hammocks, etc...
Overall great bang for the buck. Will return for a longer stay another time.
