“Amazing boutique resort with potential”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013 via mobile

Upon pulling into driveway and entering the lobby, you get the sense this is an amazing resort with a nice entrance similar to those at other luxurious boutique hotels in the Caribbean. The infinity pool was huge and kept clean. Rooms were well appointed - with memory foam beds that was very comfortable! Individual wifi in each unit! Staff was amazing and went our of their way to provide top service and make you feel at home! Outstanding employees were Jose Autoro and Sergio Gomez at the restaurant and Angel the bellman. Once this resort is fully up and running (they just opened 12/1), this resort has potential to be even more amazing. Right now, restaurant choices are limited and not all the rooms are ready to be occupied, and there is no fitness facility. Inclusions of the all- inclusive is also not laid out upon arrival, there was no butlers as advertised ( though not needed at this stage) and no water activities at this resort. Suggestions include an improved breakfast menu, room service menu in the rooms, and most importantly, the resort should provide shuttle service to Juanillio Beach or Caleton beach club since even though it is advertised to be beachfront, it is only a very shallow man made lagoon and not a real swim able beach with no water activities. This could be a deal breaker for most guests that book at this hotel and is easy to remedy with shuttle service.
All in all, this was a welcome change from the mega resorts in Punta Cana, and is quaint and personal with attentive service. I will return and hope my experience will only improve upon my return visit once the resort has more time to settle in and is fully operational.

We spent one wonderful week at Alsol Del Mar! We look forward to a return visit and we do recommend this resort! Here is what I feel other travelers would want to know: this resort is located in Cap Cana on a beautiful coastline. It is a small resort which offers very personal attention to guests. The grounds and the property are well-maintained, clean, and offer modern amenities. The area of Cap Cana is a quiet gated community. We felt very safe at the resort and in this area. It is a 15 minute taxi ride from the Punta Cana airport and the cost is $30 one-way. It is very easy to get a taxi from the airport to the resort.
Beach: The beach Side of the hotel is beautiful! It is not a long walking beach, but there are other beaches very close by that allow for long walks. The beach lounge chairs are very comfortable and there are open structures to provide shade from the sun. We especially enjoyed the sunrise from the beach every morning!
Pool: The infinity pool is beautiful! It is just a couple steps off of the sand and allows you to really enjoy the ocean view while being in the pool. The pool is kept spotless. It has a gorgeous swim up bar. There is also a very shallow area at one end and a ledge around the deeper end if you just wanted to sit with your feet in the pool and enjoy the sun. The bartender, Herticio, makes great tropical drinks! Around the pool there are comfortable chaise lounges, tables, umbrellas, and a couple bed options. The pool is such a beautiful setting!
Rooms; we stayed in unit number 1302 which was a one bedroom apartment with a loft bedroom. We had an oceanview balcony and ocean view bed! Our unit had tropical feel, was clean and comfortable. The towels, linens and bedding were all quality products. The kitchen was top-notch appliances and countertop. At our request, beer and water was delivered daily. They also stocked three types of soda. We appreciated having coffee and a coffee maker right in our room since we are early risers. There is a huge walk-in shower that has two shower heads, one is rainfall and the other regular. We also saw one of their two bedroom units and their deluxe room accommodations. I would be happy in any of the units that we saw.
Food and restaurants: during our stay, only two of the restaurant options were open. Food is cooked to order and everything was fresh. There are different menus for different nights but lots of great options on each menu! We also quickly learned that Chef enjoys preparing specialty dishes that are not on the menu! We had great salads, fresh fish, Dominican and Mexican dishes and homemade soups. The ceviche at the lunch grill is the best! It is obvious that Chef enjoys making people happy with his cooking! Everything he made for us was outstanding!
Activities: The concierge will arrange tours and activities for guests but we chose to just enjoy the beauty of the property and the beach and the pool.
Staff: the staff is awesome! They made our week so special! They are very eager to please and always offer a smile and even a hug! Someone was always checking on us to see if there was anything we needed.
Overall this is a beautiful resort and a peaceful, romantic, tranquil place. There is no loud music and no vendors. Food is great, staff is awesome, views are incredible. If you're looking for place to party, this is not the place. If you are looking for a place to relax and unwind and be at peace, this is a perfect option for you. I recommend this resort and I will soon be booking a return trip.
Feel free to send me a private message if you have any questions about the resort or the area.

My wife and I just returned from the newest property of the AlSol family of hotels and I wanted to pass along my thoughts about it. The young, energetic and professional team of AlSol is once again putting together a 5 star experience for travelers right on the beautiful beaches of Cap Cana. This was originally a Sotogrande property and the economy stalled progress for a hotel operator to come in and make this piece of paradise a player within the Punta Cana area. Enter AlSol and the improvements they are making are not only full steam ahead, but this looks to be among the best places to stay for the peak season of 2013 and beyond. They are currently building out three restaurants - one seafood/Carribean out on the deck of the main lobby floor looking out to the ocean, a barbeque on the pool/beach and a five star Italian restaurant within the main building. They are enlisting a top chef who has been trained around the world to provide an outstanding dining experience in a location second to none. A sister property of Sanctuary (which is right next door), AlSol del Mar sits on the beautiful Carolina Beach. Units range from a standard studio with two queen sized beds to three bedroom suites. Most of the units have personal Jacuzzis and are equipped with full kitchens or kitchenettes. All of them have outdoor space. I cannot say enough about the staff and if you are looking for a relaxing getaway that has all of the amenities at a VERY reasonable price in an area that is second to none. Take advantage of this chance to get in on the ground floor of this new property before prices catch up to the rest of the Punta Cana hotels! Enjoy your stay!
