Arrived on a Sunday, check-in was non-eventful. The initial room had two queen beds, but was only a couple. Room was also over the disco, which makes a difference at 2AM. Next morning, upgraded to VIP status. Higher floor with lower living area & verandah and upper bed with king size bed. Nice!
The VIP service was due to signing up for the IVC (vacation club). Not quite like a timeshare, but similar in marketing and execution.
The food was basic all-inclusive fare, but trying everything revealed what was worth going back for. The staff was friendly, helpful and ultimately treated us like family.
The resort has disco, casino, several non-cafeteria restaurants (Mexican, Italian, and Dominican), spa, pools, beaches (regular and VIP).
The beginning of the week was filled with mostly Euros and Canucks, but by Friday, the Dominican families blanketed the place. I love Dominicanos, but if you are not comfortable with the culture, or don't speak Spanish, Sunday-Friday are best.
As a VIP I will return. And the fact that I joined a vacation club says a lot!
