This hotel was possibly the worst place I've ever stayed. Heads up if the you get the "garden view;" transalation: view of the employee entrance into the facility. I've slept on thicker mattresses at camp. Oh, then when they turn your bed down at night they leave "mints;" that is, Halls "menthol" cough drops; obviously, something gets lost in the translation. The pool has was awful; chipped paint everywhere. The all inclusive feature is a nightmare: the "tropical" drinks all tasted the same but were only different tropical colors -- that is if you can wait long enough to get one. The beach was disgusting: apparently, people see sand and think that it's one big ashtray. Planning on going out for the night to see the town; not in Punta Cana. You'll be a hostage in the resort the entire trip, unless you take a tour. On the upside, the food was decent and the water was beautiful. But, really, go somewhere else -- or, if you must visit Punta Cana do not stay at this hotel.
