My friends and I booked a package from Expedia.com at Barcelo Naiboa Caribe Resort for 5 nights and 6 days. We just got back this Monday (Feb. 2nd)
The all inclusive package was really great! - all you can eat and drink! And food and drinks were all very good.
Our room was a good size room with balcony. It came with a beautiful view of the beach. There was enough warm water. You should drink or brush teeth from the faucet water, so we brought bottled water to our trip. Our beds were made every day and our bathroom was cleaned everyday by the maid. We had enough closet space for three people.
In the day time, you can stay at the resort and play water volleyball or basketball, get a sun tan by the private beach or swimming pool, learn new dance moves, or play beach volleyball. Or, you can take a local bus to Boca Chica beach, Juan Dolio, San Pedro, or Santo Domingo for less than a dollar. They have night live stage shows every night at 10pm. They have a disco from 11pm-2am, but not that many people are there though..
The place is bit far from big tourists' attractions, but take the local bus for about 25 dominican pesos (50 cents) to the big beach nearby, Boca Chica or go to the capital city, Santo Domingo for 45 dominican pesos (a little less than $1). The beach at this resort is small, but it is private.
Not all the staffs speak English fluently, but there's at least one or two always around that speaks well. If you're going to Dominican Republic, you should learn some phrases in Spanish. We can't expect everyone in the world to speak English fluently!
>>Every staffs were so friendly and were always reaching out to help you.
Our complaint would be that they had a "jacuzzi," but I guess their definition of jacuzzi was different from ours. There were bubbles in "jacuzzi," but the water never became hot like the ones in the US.
We really enjoy the trip to Naiboa Caribe!
