This is my first review although I've stayed in many island resorts and tropical destinations. This place is hands-down the best combination of service and privacy I've ever experienced. The place is built and staffed to entertain like 250 rooms but only has about 25 private cabanas. This results in an empty pool at times. Always available seating at the restaurant and a staff that more than once set up a table by the pool for us to eat lunch just because I felt like it (sounds terrible, I know). Barahona is a bit out of the way which has its pluses and minuses. The ride from Santo Domingo is an investment of time. This results in perfect romantic nights star-gazing on Nikki-beach-inspired lounging chairs without any city lights to hide the hundreds of stars we never get to see. Truly magical.
