The one that we stayed is new built and in front of a beautiful ocean. We so blessed to stay in this hotel. All inclusive and the people who works here ar soooo nice. Food are lots of choices and they have variety of ice cream. The water in the shower kinda bit salty though but we dont mind. Hehe!
All in all we love it. We might back this Nov. Hopefully.

This last trip must be my 5th time in the Dominican, if I can count correctly, and I can say that the value vs. cost here is fantastic, and it may be the best option in Punta Cana, for the price. Firstly all the employees, from the reception to the different waiters and bartenders, and even housekeeping, are very experienced and do their job to the best of their abilities.

Our breakfast was more plentiful and had more options than most places I've experienced int he Caribbean. All the other stuff, like beach, pool, restaurants, dinner, room, were really good.

Beautiful beach and sunny weather every single day. Dont hesitate book this hotel, we had a really amazing time and mostly because the hotel is so great and comfortable.

Stayed here for 5 nights in a superior room, plenty of space, shower was ok and room was tidy. Food was very nice and rarely if ever ran out. Wasn’t too
keen on the beer, so decided to go teetotal for the 5 day break. Swimming pools were clean and plentiful and the beach was also clean. No shortage of sun beds anywhere either. Staff appeared very friendly too. Overall a very pleasant and relaxed stay

Very warm and genuine welcome from the receptionist after our long journey. Got checked in quickly and after dropping the luggage in the room we hit the beach which was amazing! So easy to and from the hotel room so when I wanted to go back earlier than my husband to get showered and ready for dinner it was quick and safe. The room was lovely. Spotlessly clean and modern with nice pool view. There is only salty water in the shower which takes a day or 2 to get used to, but it didn’t bother us. Food at the hotel was varied. Some evenings better than others for vegetarians but on the whole good quality and my husband loved it. The sushi was great. Like how they’ve put different swimming pools here and there around the property. The pool in the more traditional part behind felt very secluded and private which I liked, but also loved the rooftop seaview trendy pool! Staff all lovely. Always happy. A great hotel for couples.

Great hotel in perfect setting. The room was very comfortable and looked great and the views worth every penny. Good shower and mattress was not too soft or too hard. Staff are very nice here. They would say hi when they passed by and one guy on reception was particularly good (didn’t catch his name). Food didn’t get boring and we stayed 10 nights. Lot’s of hot and cold choices and fruit available. Staff kept it well stocked and tables clean. The swimming pools were always clean too. Sometimes we’d go to the beach, sometimes use a pool. Spoilt for choice. Had a super relaxing time with my husband.
