We went for a long weekend and thought to enjoy a nice dinner in the Japanese restaurant Kyoto. The Hibachi offers chicken, fish or shrimp and the 4 of us...

This was our second visit to this resort in four years. Location great but I came home with Salmonella and we only ate at the resort. My husband had shirt stolen by pool. I think they need to make some improvements!

We visited the Barcelo Punta Cana January 2-7. Overall we had an excellent time! The resort staff is friendly and helpful. The bartenders were awesome- our favorites were Lilian and Cesar! We even taught Cesar how to make a Dominican version of the chocolate martini. The food was great and the buffet always had a large selection. I would recommend...

The resort was very beautiful and quiet. The beach was cleaned every morning and they had plenty of chairs to lay on. They also have two very large and beautiful pools that are not crowded. The hotel was also clean. We had a blast and the shows were amazing. The highlight would have to be the Michael Jackson show that...
