Food - Great Buffets, Some a la Carte options. Dinner on the beach was amazing
Surroundings - White sand beaches, no villas on the beach, but 30 second walk. Nature area on resort with little river running through it.
Staff - Very helpful, nice, warm. Security guard at the gate became a fast friend, told me about decent off-resort shopping; feel horrible that I forget his name :(
Excursions - The 27 Charcos (Waterfalls) was probably one of the greatest experiences of my life. You can do about a forty-five minute hike and then swim down a river and jump off waterfalls guided by the most amazing guides in the world. When I mean you can - you have to! It was incredible. Zip-lining was great too. http://www.colonialtours.com.do/charcos_of_damajagua_dominican_republic.htm
Shopping: One on resort mall (touristy), two shopping districts about a half hour beach walk (the Orange and the Blue).
Only negative aspect was that we went all inclusive through Transat Vacations, and the BlueBay timeshare sales team probably found you out daily wanting you to talk about signing up for a information session. Not a huge negative, and they left you alone when you said you didn't want to, but new person following day would do the same.
