Our 3-generation family of ten stayed in three adjacent two-room suites at the five-trident section (Tiara). We all agreed it was worth the price of the upgrade. Our porches faced the ocean and had morning sun and afternoon shade. There is a private "infinity" pool for this section with a bar and a pool attendant who is wonderful at keeping an eye on the sun and moving the very large and effective umbrellas to keep you in the shade. Our five grandchildren loved this pool which has a vary large shallow area and a lifeguard (who is not as attentive as he might be). The bartender is very sweet to the children, making them mango smoothies and Shirley Temples on demand. The adults very much enjoyed the mojitos and pina colladas. Note that some of the rooms in this section face the pool (with the ocean in the background) but would be noisier and less private than the ones directly on the ocean. We were happy we did not have these rooms. Despite the fact that there are well over 1000 people at the resort, the beaches felt only full, not at all croweded; the same with the large pool. Activities for the children are myriad, the 12-year olds disappeared after breakfast and, at our request, joined us for dinner. The younger children went sometimes to their age group camps, sometimes stayed with us. There are two very large restaurants, one on the water, and the variety and quality of the food is incredible. All of our picky eaters found much to enjoy, and our vegetarians too. The food has a very Gallic flavor with frogs' legs and snails in garlic butter on the menu sometimes, as well as french pastry for desserts and an extensive cheese selection. Red and white wine is available at every lunch and dinner and is included as part of the "all inclusive". Yet at every lunch and dinner there is a grill area with hot dogs, hamburgers, and very good chicken "fingers". We were there over February school break week and about half the guests were English-speaking, a larger proportion than usual we were told. The staff are mostly tri-lingual or bilingual in English and French. We had a couple of incidents of less-than stellar experiences but they were isolated and served as exceptions to a general excellence. Highly recommended. But you have to deal with the Punta Cana airport to get there. Totally awful!
