We spent one wonderful week at Alsol Del Mar! We look forward to a return visit and we do recommend this resort! Here is what I feel other travelers would want to know: this resort is located in Cap Cana on a beautiful coastline. It is a small resort which offers very personal attention to guests. The grounds and the property are well-maintained, clean, and offer modern amenities. The area of Cap Cana is a quiet gated community. We felt very safe at the resort and in this area. It is a 15 minute taxi ride from the Punta Cana airport and the cost is $30 one-way. It is very easy to get a taxi from the airport to the resort.
Beach: The beach Side of the hotel is beautiful! It is not a long walking beach, but there are other beaches very close by that allow for long walks. The beach lounge chairs are very comfortable and there are open structures to provide shade from the sun. We especially enjoyed the sunrise from the beach every morning!
Pool: The infinity pool is beautiful! It is just a couple steps off of the sand and allows you to really enjoy the ocean view while being in the pool. The pool is kept spotless. It has a gorgeous swim up bar. There is also a very shallow area at one end and a ledge around the deeper end if you just wanted to sit with your feet in the pool and enjoy the sun. The bartender, Herticio, makes great tropical drinks! Around the pool there are comfortable chaise lounges, tables, umbrellas, and a couple bed options. The pool is such a beautiful setting!
Rooms; we stayed in unit number 1302 which was a one bedroom apartment with a loft bedroom. We had an oceanview balcony and ocean view bed! Our unit had tropical feel, was clean and comfortable. The towels, linens and bedding were all quality products. The kitchen was top-notch appliances and countertop. At our request, beer and water was delivered daily. They also stocked three types of soda. We appreciated having coffee and a coffee maker right in our room since we are early risers. There is a huge walk-in shower that has two shower heads, one is rainfall and the other regular. We also saw one of their two bedroom units and their deluxe room accommodations. I would be happy in any of the units that we saw.
Food and restaurants: during our stay, only two of the restaurant options were open. Food is cooked to order and everything was fresh. There are different menus for different nights but lots of great options on each menu! We also quickly learned that Chef enjoys preparing specialty dishes that are not on the menu! We had great salads, fresh fish, Dominican and Mexican dishes and homemade soups. The ceviche at the lunch grill is the best! It is obvious that Chef enjoys making people happy with his cooking! Everything he made for us was outstanding!
Activities: The concierge will arrange tours and activities for guests but we chose to just enjoy the beauty of the property and the beach and the pool.
Staff: the staff is awesome! They made our week so special! They are very eager to please and always offer a smile and even a hug! Someone was always checking on us to see if there was anything we needed.
Overall this is a beautiful resort and a peaceful, romantic, tranquil place. There is no loud music and no vendors. Food is great, staff is awesome, views are incredible. If you're looking for place to party, this is not the place. If you are looking for a place to relax and unwind and be at peace, this is a perfect option for you. I recommend this resort and I will soon be booking a return trip.
Feel free to send me a private message if you have any questions about the resort or the area.
