I'm on Day 2 of 6 and I'm exhausted and kinda ready to go home. First off this resort is massive and it is very hard to get from place to place. There is a trolley that runs but it's always full; so we're doing way more walking that we'd like. The map provided is terrible; and there was no orientation to the resort. By the way no one speaks English. It is very hard to accomplish simple task like telling them your shower is broken. (It's day 2 and our shower is still broken)
Everyone is very nice but service is terribly slow. Last night dinner took 3 hours. We were exhausted by the end of that experience. We should have savored it because today we starving! If you miss the 10 am breakfast end like us you're pretty much out of luck until noon. And that's over at 4 and you then have to wait until 6 for dinner. It's not like most resorts where food is always available.
The rooms are nice but nothing amazing. Lots of maintenance issues and the beach is nowhere in site. There is only one villa that has some view if the beach.
We've stayed at the palladium in Jamaica and it was polar opposite from this resort. Talking with other patrons from Georgia to Germany- this resort is disappointing and there are very many better options if you come to punta cana. I'd love to offer my suggestions to management but no one understands English well enough!
