Spent two weeks from 1st to 15th of July in this beautiful resort. Being at Caribbean is always great pleasure but this hotel was really amazing! It’s located about 25 minutes bus ride from the airport and few minutes after the welcome cocktail in we were in our luxury room.
Resort was beautiful and very well maintained. They are putting big emphasis to the cleanliness of the resort and we were more than satisfied with that.
We got a room on the ground level in building #91, opposite the pool side and I recommend this kind of room to everyone who wants to be close to everything, to avoid stairwell and also to avoid noise from the pool. Rooms are great size and everything there was in perfect order. Maids cleaned every day and very diligently.
Food was probably the best thing in this hotel. There was plenty of choices for everybody and if you are on a diet, don’t go to this hotel! ☺ No experiences with the A la card restaurants as we enjoyed going in one of their two Buffets. So far here we found best selection of international and local alcohol brands. For espresso coffee lovers they don’t have good coffee machines. Instead of that there are many automatic machines installed around the resort but comparing with the quality of the coffee in other Caribbean Resorts, they need some improvement.
There are 2 big pools and one smaller with 3 big Jacuzzis. The water in the polls was warm and you have feeling like you are in a Spa! Pool Bar is good size and many tourists are enjoying it during the day.
The beach is just beyond the pool and has lots of great shadows to avoid sunburn. Even when the temperature was very high you can always feel mild wind, which will help you also to be protected from the mosquitoes; but in the same time there are always small waves at the water. Most of the time you will find some grass in the water. The staff is cleaning the beach very frequently. The Beach Bar staff was very friendly and was offering us refreshing drinks throughout the day. We spend most of our time on the beach.
The Entertainment was good but not something spectacular. They have some activities at the Beach and at the Pool. The main performances are close to Punta Cana Hotel and you have to use small trains to get there (they are very nice and frequent).
At the Lobby of the hotel you can use free Internet for 60 minutes but in case you need more time you can use their public computers.
