Overall the Hotel was excellent. The staff is incredible and will do anything it takes to make sure you have a great stay. As with the other reviews the drive to the resort is about 1hr, and it can be an adventure. Once you are at the hotel you never have to leave unless you are feeling adventurous. If you need help with any off resort activities there are several people at the hotel who can help you plan on doing anything you want to do, just expect to encounter a drive of 45 minutes minimum to any type of off resort activity. I highly recommend the diving excursions to anyone who is into diving. If you are curious about diving or interested in getting certified they have everything at the resort to help you and Franklin is an excellent instructor.
Here is a brief overview of what I feel are the Pro's and Con's of the resort:
-Location and drive (It is very nice being excluded from everything but sometimes I spent 8 hours of my trip packed in a van)
-Mosquito's were a problem the last night we were there. The resort did however provide bug spray if you did not bring your own.
I would not only recommend this hotel to anyone considering going to Punta Cana. When I go back to Punta Cana this is the only place I would consider staying.
