traveled as a couple and had a great time. I never write reviews but decided to write this one because i almost did not go to this hotel due to some negative reviews i read prior to choosing this hotel. We arrived Feb.24th and stayed until March 3rd. The weather was great only one day of rain. The check in was pretty quick and i found the front desk to be pretty helpful throughout our stay. The buffet food was delicious in contrary to what i had read on some reviews. There was plenty to choose from. The beach was great and the water was pretty clear and pretty shallow until long way in which is great since i am not a swimmer. Yes i did get bitten by sand flies so bring some spray. The vendors are there but it is up to you to let them know you are not interested. I was only approached once by one his name was Samuel and told him that I did not have money with me at the time and would go to his cabin when i was ready to buy that was it...no more. Entertainment fantastic staff all of them put so much time and effort...the shows are ok the best was the Michael Jackson. The rooms were always clean and mini bar refilled. The bed was quite comfortable. I want to give special thanks to Eddy and Marina they really stand out with a smile every day at the buffet....even though many people were not tipping i noticed. Give them a tip they deserve it. There is casino, disco and dancing on the street so no lack of entertainment. By the way I have traveled a lot on cruises
been at Dominican 4 times, Cuba, Mexico. Would not hesitate to go back to this hotel.
They have great programs for children...great place for family...
