Our vacation at Alsol Luxury Village was awesome. I had read all the reviews prior to our trip. The two or three bad reviews are only from the transition period from Marina Sands to Alsol. So do not consider the negative reviews about this resort. Under the name Alsol they have been top notch. The resort close by, Sanctuary, now owns this property. When you go to the Sanctuary website you will see a link for their "sister" resort, Alsol. Alsol has their own site as well. We did spend part of a day at the Sanctuary. The Sanctuary is for sure more crowded and more of a "party" place. Alsol would be the alternative, quiet, not crowded, but with amazing service resort. So you have two options from the same management. Sanctuary does have three beaches right there, plus the pools. Alsol has multiple pools, with the marina, beach is a golf cart drive by staff away. In all honesty, we actually preferred the beach by Alsol better. That beach is run by Punta Cana Resort, so the drinks and food there are not free. We ate breakfast, got the ride to beach on golf cart (very close). We asked to be picked up at 3pm, ride was there at three on the dot. Very clean beach, beautiful photo ops there with beautiful beach, rocks, trees growing out of sand in water, and a two story hut type structure. The staff were over the top amazing, absolutely no complaints. The food was the same, over the top. Everything was all inclusive. This is amazing, one night the staff said they wanted to do a special dinner for us, they set up a beautiful table for the four of us outside the restaurant, right next to the beautiful marina. My wife and daughters and I were amazed, we felt so fortunate, like royalty. The rooms are top notch, as this was previously a luxury condo village. There are a few condo owners still in the village, we talked to all of them that we came into contact with, very nice people. So in a nutshell, if you want a quieter relaxing vacation with over the top service in a 5 star setting choose Also. If you want a more lively, party place, with outstanding service as well, choose the Sanctuary. This was absolutely our best vacation ever. Through site directly or through southwest.com there is currently a 60% sale now through December. I will post some pics as well.
