I have been to the resort twice. The first was around a year ago and the second was a few months later.
Food....yes they have food. And it's pretty much the same thing day after day. There was not a lot of fresh fruit and considering if you walk 100 yards of the resort you can get all the fresh fruit you need the lack of it baffles me.
Most of the meals were ok but nothing tO rave about.
Rooms...yea they have those also but again nothing to rave about. In my case the minuate I walked in the room I noticed that one of the legs of the bed were missing, you would think the staff would have noticed when they were prepping the room but they didn't .
The general mood of the staff was ok but for the most part they seemed to just be putting in time. Mind you the mood did increase when I started to give tips to get better service, normally I'm a high tipper but I base that on the service I get BEFORE I hand out money.
That being said I understand why this happens but I have been to the DR six times in the last year and this is the first time I have given less than 4 stars on any review.
The best suggestion I can give anyone going here for their first time trip to the DR is go to the resort, check in, unpack and then head out the front and turn to the right then you will see what Sosua has to offer. Resorts are great (well maybe not this one) but if you want to truly see the Dominican Republic and all it has to offer do yourself a favor and spend your time away from the resort and among the locals that is when your vacation will truly begin and you'll have story's to tell back home not about the food and the drinks but about the country and its people. Your friends won't be disappointed.
Finally if you choose to not hit the resort scence check out my reviews for Rockys and The Mary Rose. These two are high on the list of where you should stay for a vacation to remember.
