“Great spot”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

Its quiet and peaceful. Juanillo beach (10 minutes) is beautiful and great food. The rooms great and a nice pool. The food in the restaurant is nice but only one restaurant in the hotel. And the golf course is amazing...

I spent a week in this hotel with my kids (ages 16, 13, 6). We had a two bed room suite. The suite was in bad shape. If you are going, request the suite on first or third floor so the Jacuzzi can get some heat from the sun. The one I had was on second floor and we could not use it because the water was always cold (no water heater). We had problems with our tubs and doors. kids have nothing to do. In my opinion this place is more for adults that want to be away from the noise and busy lives. A couple of things more...to go to the beach you need a car or you can take a shuttle bus, also request buildings 8 or 9. Those 2 buildings are close to the reception office and are in better shape than others.

We stayed at at Hotel in Bavaro Beach. It was an all inclusive place with bad food, loud music, small room with a view of a fence, with and unfriendly staff.

We swithed hotels, and spent the rest of our vacation here. If you are look for a tranquil vacation, with great service, a large beautiful rooms with ocean views, free breakfast, this is your place. We would come back here every year!!!

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the second or third floor for better views.

The first nite in the dominican republic we spend in the golden bear lodge. Its only 12km from the airport punta cana and its not soooo over priced. This seems to be related to the fact that it is not directly on the beach. It is not the kind of 5* hotel resort you normally expect. It is smaller and in a way nicer because you dont feel like guest number 5634 more like a real person. There is no all inclusive buffett so you know you get food that is made for you.

Access to the great golf course is a plus. You need a car while staying on this property - don't rely on the shuttle, and you need to go grocery shopping off site. There is a great marketplace right outside the Airport. A real supermarket and several cute restaurants. On site spa and gym were average. Pool was very nice. Best to check out the nearby Sanctuary to actually see anyone else, and enjoy a beautiful beach with access to food and beverage services. The Marina was also nice, but deserted. We were two couples and enjoyed a beautiful two bedroom suite that was well appointed. It would have been nice if the outdoor tub had heat! There is only one convenient wifi spot within walking distance of the rooms.
