As a first time traveler Internationally I had no expectations when I went to this all inclusive and to say I was more than pleasantly suprised would be a huge understatement.The staff were always professional,friendly and available and considering the long hours they work they always had a smile and "Hola!" at all times.The room was spacious and the maids were in 2x a day whether it was needed or not.
The buffet was excellent with a huge selection for any type of food you could imagine including local and vegetarian choices along with amazing desserts.I personally wasn't super impressed with the food at Don Pablo but the service at both was always pleasant and timely.
Note to North American travellers:On the beach you will see topless sunbathers.Realize that nowhere else in the world is this uncommon and it is something you WILL see. Also realize that this Island nation will not always have North American cuisine like your used to at home.This is not a bad thing!.
One last thing.If you take 3 minutes to learn a couple of words in Spanish it will take you far!.Though the staff for the most part has excellent English a little Spanish will go a long long way don't be shy!.
