We stayed at this resort from March 13-20, with a group of 7...2 that are teenagers.
transfer to the hotel was excellent, 30 min. Check in no porblem, our rooms were ready at arrival.
I found the room clean, very "Ikea" furniture, large bathroom, included a clothes line in the bathroom. Yet shelving was minimal. We stayed on a 1st floor west side, and had no problem with hot water etc. the other half of our group stayed in the main building, and had little hot water
All staff were very friendly and helpful the entire stay
Food selection was better than expected.....and everyone found something they enjoyed daily...meat station each night, soups, bread, pasta etc etc
We also tried the Mexican and Italian...both were fantastic
This resort is the house wine (terrible) as well as no fresh juice at the bar or at any buffet...all concentrate. If you like rum and coke or beer your good. Yet the kids loved the slushy drinks
We brought a bottle of wine to dinner each night that we brought from home, or that we purchased (there is a supermarket across the street that sells a good selection for about 12.00 per bottle) Yet you can also buy a bottle at the resort yet nothing is under 25.00 USD. They had no problem opening the wine we brought in with us (I believe if they changed this alone, it would shoot up their star rating)
We used US$ everywhere...but barter 60% less the asking price first
part of the group did the Monkey ziplining...and LOVED it!
We all did the "City Tour" (49.00 each, 25.00 for kids) ...well worth it. You go to Peurto Plata, You see the Amber Museum, "Jesus Christ" on the mountain by aero-car, see the different levels of homes, St Phillipe Church, fort , Rum factory, lunch and some shopping.....if you want amber or larimar or silver jewellery this is the tour to take...great selection
We did to cabaret a few times...7.00 cab ride, yet an easy walk back (in daylight) on the beach to the resort great little bars to sit and have a drink.
also enjoyed the spa in the hotel, excellent facial and massage....100.00 USD for both!
We also had family photographs taken on the beach, very resonable (10.00 per picture selected)
I can not say enough about the "animation team" at this resort....fantastic!!!! they always had something going on, and work above and beyond....yet not pushy if you didnt want to join in.
The beach was nice, yet windy...yet lots of shade. too...lots of vendors on the beach, yet a a smile and a "no gracios" is fine...by the end of the week you are chatting to them as friends and finding out more about D.R !
This is a nice small hotel, we loved it and would go back...yet next time I would take ocean view 3rd floor!
