We stayed for 7 nights. The down side is that our whole family got sick. We had 10 people with us. We landed in Ft. Lauderdale and had to take my mom straight to the ER where they had to admit her. She was so dehydrated from stomach issues. The rest of us went to the urgent care. We call it Poopa Canna now. We ONLY ate at the resort. We talked to several other people staying there and they all had the same issues. All of the kids got ear infections from the pool in addition to the stomach issues. So the money you may save staying there will be spent at the Hospital or on your Co-pays.
The hotel grounds are nice, the staff is friendly. The rooms are below par. I would NEVER go back. This hotel ruined the Dominican Republic for me. I don't think we will every go back.
It with a heavy heart that I write this, the people at the resort were very nice. I don't want to hurt the jobs they have there. I just wish I had read this before we went.
