This was our second time at this resort. Last year for three weeks and this year for four weeks. Do we have any regrets? Definitely - that we didn't discover this hotel sooner. We have stayed at other hotels in the Dominican Republic for the last 28 years. All have their good points and some things we would change. But remember, a hotel is a place to hang your hat so to speak. What really makes or breaks your vacation is your attitude and the the people around you. Are there some things that need attention? Yes. But none that are critical to your enjoyment. If you ask politely, the staff will do everything they can to fix things. As has been said in reviews here many times, this is not a 5 star resort nor are you paying for 5 star amenities. If you want everything to be "just like home" - then stay home or pay more.
It is a testament to this hotel that it has loyal repeat customers from year to year. We certainly intend to keep going back.
I mentioned already that the key here is to have the right attitude. If you don't worry so much about some of the things that could use a little upgrading, you will find that you have much more energy to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and the even more beautiful staff here.
It has been said before, but bears repeating: The staff here are second to none. If you allow them to, they will become good friends with a place in your heart. This year as we were about to leave, my wife was crying and I have to say, my eyes were leaking a bit too.
We have started to save our pennies and can hardly wait for the next 11 months to pass when we can see once more our Dominican family and other friends we made.
