This place rocks, if you want to just drink and relax. The D.R. is so poor there is not much out there. That being said for the money this place can't be beat. The staff is great, rooms are nice, food is good( after all it is a hotel, if you go to a hotel for 5 star dining then you've never had 5 star food). The tranfer takes about an hour, not that it's that for away, but between the holes in the dirt and gravel rd. and all the motor bikes, it's slow going. Excellence club is a joke don't waste the money, Tell them it's your honeymoon and you'll get fruit and spk. wine anyway. The casino is pretty small but after midnight it's a happening place, same with the disco. If you smoke, take a carton with you, cigs there taste funny and burn. the sun is intense, I don't burn in Texas, I did after an hour in D. R.
SAND FLEAS OR FLIES or whatever they are didn't bother me at all, I never get bit by anything , my girl however got tore up. They look like flea bites. Spray down with off (they have it there) and try to avoid the beach after dark as much as possible.
Tip a dollar or two every couple of rounds, you will be rewarded , if you are brave try the local moonshine "mamawana"
Take the free horse ride, buy the bottle of rum skip the cd, hit walmart(it's a shack, you'll get his card) put a little money into the local economy
One Sunday we were so hung over that we stayed in bed all day and had room service. what a waste you may be thinking, but after 6 srtaight days of drinking, a day off was nice. Besides with direct tv from denver we watched football all day. There also is an "adult" channel that plays all day and night, if your so inclined.
leave a five at the mini bar and never run out of presidente beer
We're going to mexico to get married this year, but to just to relax and eat and drink, save a few bucks and hit the D.R.
