Wow, we had a great time, no compliants. Excellent service and great food. This was our 18th all inclusive vacation. I am a well seasoned vacationer usually staying at 4-5 star.
This did not disappoint. The service was amazing.
Food: Very good, no use of funky spices. Tasted like home, Turkey dinner with gravy and mashed potatoes, roast beef, great grilled tuna and an exceptional beach barbecue with great chicken and fries. The ketchup and condiments are all Heinz and the softdrinks are coke products. The Japanese restaurant was great - amazing show. There were no funky items and breakfast was great. The homemade donuts were a nice treat.
Christmas was well done, beautiful decorations and everyone in Santa hats the duration, with santa on the beach on Christmas day delivering gifts to the Children (you bring the gifts and santa delivers. They really went the extra mile.
Time share - One very nice individual offered me 60.00 to attend, no pressure. I did not attend. (I was only asked once)
Internet - 10.00 a day for wi-fi. I brought my netbook and it was fast and easy. 7.00 for a half hour of internet time on their computers. They were almost always available and the resort was full. You can purchase a phone card for 20.00 and call out simply by dialing 5 and then your number (very easy). their is a bank machine at the hotel that accepted both my Canadian bank cards.
Room, make sure you have a remote for the tv, if not ask. The maid gave me more blankets immediately. The hair dryer broke and maintainance was in our room within 10 minutes. Again the resort was full. Excellent service. The voltage is the same as in Canada, however if you have a camera that needs a flat surface to charge the battery you can get a free adaptor at the front desk. There was no stopper for the tub again just ask and they will deliver.
English is not widely spoken, but who cares you are in a Spanish speaking country and most of the guests are European. The front desk as well as your representative can help with most questions. Was not a problem at all.
I have been to Cuba 11 times and was very happy with the DR, very much on par with the
Sirenis Grand Playa Turquesa in Holguin. Yes it is off on its own and there is little shopping but the quiet and beautiful private beach ment more to me. There are some little shops up the beach with paintings and Dominican art.
The beach and pool are beside each other, the resort was full Christmas week and we had no trouble finding chairs. Service everywhere was exceptional and I have never been somewhere where tips really were not expected. Very flat resort.
We had a ground floor room with a big balcony with wicker furniture. No bugs and very clean.
Yes there is a charge for the safe 3.00 per day and you do need to leave a 50.00 usd deposit. You can imagine the cost to re-key a safe if the key is lost, so I was not bothered by this and got my money back at check-out.
Towells were in our room on arrival (Sunquest) We did not need to handle our luggage at all it was taken to our room on arrival. When you arrive there is a welcome bottle of Dominican Rum in the room and the minibar has bottled water, coke and sprite. Tell the maid if you want diet coke and it is not a problem. The main bars close at 1am and the disco charges 3.00 per drink. Shows were great, Micheal Jackson, Dirty dancing, many more. Lots of live music each day and great activities.
Do not hesitate to go to this resort, I have stayed at the Barcelo Marina Palace, Sol Cayo Coco, Blau Cayo Coco, El Senador, Sirenis Grand Playa turquesa, Riu Jalisco, Puerto Vallarta and the Hamilton Princess in Bermuda, and many more. I loved this resort.
Have a great vacation.
