“Couldn't be happier”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

There were only a few small things I didn't like. The constant hounding until you take the tour for them to try to sell you a timeshare, just say no its ok. Everything else was great, the staff were very kind and courteous. They all had activities going on all the time, the staff like Big Papi, and Romeo were really nice guys. The best place in my mind to eat was the Dominican restaurant.

I have been going to this hotel at least once a year for the last five years. The staff is simply amazing. They keep your spirits up and know exactly how to make you have a good time! Although the entire staff is great there are a few of my favorites, John Cena, Big Papi, Moskito, Lenny Kravitz, Geoge of the Jungle (Best towel boy ever!), Salami, Danny Caramelo, Deny, Nelson, Pedro, Kelvin, John Wayne, and Andre. I honestly can't wait to go back and visit with them next year!

Room Tip: I personally like building six because it is very close to the pool and the food. I also prefer to b...

This is an excellent hotel with over 10 restaurants to choose from, is you are a member. I purchased the gold bracelets two years ago and it was a very wise decision. Top shelf liquor, great service, updated rooms and exclusive beach access. I love this place!!

Ok, so it was an incredible deal, so I guess you get what you pay for. The location is splendid with relaxing cabanas and hot tubs on the beach. Two dinner tickets are given for a more exclusive dinner during the stay. The Brazilian Restaurant is fantastic! Don't waste your ticket on the Asian; trade it in for another Brazilian! The Casa Blanca is the worst! I felt sorry for the poor woman in the fruit section trying, but not succeeding to keep up with the demand for cut fruit while her line of fruit smoothies never ended. The most horrifying thing, birds! Birds are zooming in on the food bowls, sitting on the fruit bowls & eating directly from them. I mentioned It to a waiter who casually looked over & half-heatedly shooed it away. They eat from the dessert trays, etc. Don't eat there! It may be an all you can eat "international buffet", but with the crowds of people it's an ALL YOU CAN STAND FEEDING TROUGH!

It was a wonderful vacation. I got to know so many great people from different countries.
The parties on Thursday and Sunday were very well organized. General you always can ask someone if you have a problem. The people in the Dominican Republic are so friendly and cheerful. I definitely want to come back next year.
The entertainers work very effortless. I had fun and felt comfortable. Especially John Cena and Salami made ​​the holiday to a fun-filled experience.
John Wayne who has given us the riding tour was also super nice and speaks very good German.
Thanks also to Ellery from the Spa team for the great advice.
I wish the holiday could have been longer.
Maybe we'll see us next year.
