My fiance and I stayed at this hotel for 9 days.....it was rated a 3 star, and that's excatly what you get. The food was good, a lot of veggie dishes and fruit, and the fish they had daily at dinner, was really good. A large selection of food to choose from, and again, nothing great, but all was good. The rooms were clean, the bed a bit hard, but my back liked it, and overall, again, for the price, you can't beat it. The location I liked....it was semi-seculed, and you had to walk down a street, with cute little shops along the way, to get to the beach. I didn't mind it at all, since I love to walk, and eveyone could use a little excerise ! It draws a lot of European's, western and eastern. They smoked, but they had to stay outside of the hotel, to do it, which we appreciated. They had fun activities daily.....me and my fiance did a dance class, and it was a blast. The staff was really friendly and helpful. They restock your room bar every other day, along with bottles of water, which is what my choice of drink is :) We were always able to find a lounge chair by the pool, and it had a bar right above the pool, which made it convenient to get drinks. The Bavaro beach, is absolutly outstanding.....the water is just gorgeous ! It was fun watching people from all over the world.....we really enjoy the cultural part of traveling, unlike some travelers. We did a couple excursions that we booked from our hotel, and good prices. We always bring our I-Pads, and that allows me to price check. The 90 minutes of internet a day, was adequate on most days....who wants to spend an entire vacation on the internet...stay home for that ! lol The 10.00 per day, additional use for interent was fine.....me and my fiance would trade off on using it. No biggie. The excursions we did, were snorkeling with the stingrays and nurse sharks, which was awesome, and then we did the Snuba excursion, which was a great way to introduce me to Scuba Diving.....I loved it, and the crew on both excursions, were so fun and entertaining. Overall, I would highly recommend this place, knowing, that its a 3 star hotel !
