First off, my wife and I have a hard rule that we never, ever, return to the same hotel. Well, we just came back here for the 3rd time and keep breaking our own rule. You feel like a movie star when you get off the plane and there is someone there waiting for you with your name on a hand held sign. All others are herded together while you go off as a VIP.
This hotel is perfect for a low key, relaxing escape. We had dinner one night at Cap Cana's Blue Lagoon and twice in the Punta Cana's Village. Otherwise, we dined at La Yola, Playa Blanca and at Bamboo here at the hotel.
The second golf course here, Corales will open this Friday with the DR president cutting the ribbon. Jay Overton has done a beautiful job prepping the course to be world class. PB Dye's Cana course is superb as well. Played La Espada at cap cana as well and that may be the best course in the Caribbean. For these courses, bring extra balls due to the ocean winds!
Other than the always complaining zzzdoc review, all other reviews shown here are accurate. I was a peace corps volunteer here many years ago and you will find the Dominican staff to be truly sincere and friendly.
Please come and enjoy this secret jewel in the Carribean. It has earned the number one ranking for punta cana.
