We went for 2 weeks on the 4th September and had a fantastic time. There was 6 of us and our rooms were fantastic, very modern, clean and big. The hotel has a great beach with lots of palm trees for shade. It is very hot there, only had 5 minutes of rain in the whole 2 weeks, and its very humid in the evenings. The entertainment team were fantastic and kept us informed of all events happening in the hotel. We went to Saona Island which was idyllic, real blue carribean sea with white sand, and then stopped off in the sea to hold the starfish that were surrounding our boat. Food in the hotel is good, take dollars not peso's as all the shops are priced in dollars. I would definitely go back to this hotel and would highly recommend it for everyone.
