I traveled to Zoetry with my husband in mid-December. Zoetry is about 40 minutes away from the airport. Sounds really far from the airport, but it adds to the secluded feeling of the resort. Upon arrival, the gate to the resort is rather unassuming. Once the gates opened, I was surprised how beautiful the entrance to the resort was: the open air lobby with high palm leaf roofs, the resident peacock and beautiful tropical landscaping. The front desk staff welcomed us with warm smiles, a welcome iced tea drink and a welcome Mamajuana shot (which is a must try in DR!).
We were extremely tired and hungry from our flight and wanted to settle into our room immediately. Unfortunately our room wasn't ready, so the staff kindly directed us to have a lunch at Indigo Restaurant. After eating, we checked in with the front desk and our room still wasn't ready. Finally after waiting about 2 hours, our room was ready. Our suite was absolutely beautiful, but we were unhappy to find that all the channels on our TV was "snowy". I reported it to the front desk and they said that since its the weekend, the maintenance guy won't be able to get to it until Monday. It was never fixed during our stay there. But who needs a TV when the pool was right outside our patio and the beach was within walking distance, right?!?
The pool was a bit on the chilly side and the outdoor hot tub was out of order. So we spent most of our time at the beach. We loved the beach! We ate lunch every day on the beach. The wait staff was very attentive. Besides the beach, there are activities, like horseback riding, spa services, bike riding, cooking classes, etc. As for the food, we tried almost everything on the menu.... and all we can say is YUM! Everything was so fresh and tasty. I did read the other comments about how the menu doesn't really change day to day and can get a little boring. I found that if you go to the restaurants they have a different menu than what is in the room service menu. The food is Dominican fusion food, but if you desire authentic Dominican cuisine, all you have to do is ask the wait staff. They are very accommodating.
I read the other comments on how the English of the staff is rather spotty. This really didn't bother me because my husband and I are visiting a foreign country and I didn't expect them to have the greatest English. I found that if you try your best Spanish, the staff greatly appreciates it and service gets better.
To sum up, I do not recommend this place for families. Yes there is a little playground area on premise, but that can get old after a while for the kids. If you are a big water sports person (jet skis, banana, etc), it's also not the place for you. This resort is a DO for couples. It is very romantic whether you are celebrating a honeymoon or an anniversary or just want to focus on each other. The housekeeping makes the room romantic every night for couples: flower petals on the bed and in the hottub. Its a DO for a relaxing vacay: the spa, working on your tan, catch up on a great book on the beach or just to simply get away from it all. The positives greatly outweighed our negatives during our stay. Great service, beautiful resort. I didn't want to leave.
