First of all, let me start off by saying that I have read TripAdvisor reviews for MONTHS, and we based much of our decision to go to Zoetry on those reviews. I am not sure where some of the things that people are saying about the resort are coming from, but I am astonished that it gets anything but good to great reviews.
This was our honeymoon trip, and I really feel that anyone going on their honeymoon is looking to go somewhere that is relaxing, beautiful, quiet, scenic, and basically FABULOUS....this is that place. We honeymooned at Zoetry from the end of May through the entire first week of June, and we had nothing short of a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend using a travel agent to travel anywhere out of the country as that helps expedite the process of arranging travel to and from the resort, etc. We took the helicopter transfer from the airport to the resort, and I would highly recommend it. It was my first helicopter flight, as well as my husband's, and it was fantastic. It is a short 20 minute ride and offers great views of the Dominican.
Once we arrived at Zoetry, we were immediately greeted by Daniel who offered us cool towels and showed us immediately to our room. The room to say the least is beautiful. We stayed right on the beach in a lower level room with a plunge pool, and it was perfect. Daniel settled us in and then gave us a tour of the property to help us acclimate to the property and where things were located. We even stopped at the front bar to have a champagne toast. It was perfect.
I have seen some of the reviews about the food not being good and I get really upset. This food is by far some of the BEST FOOD I HAVE EVER HAD. This is an all-inclusive resort, and I have heard horror stories in regards to resorts like this where the food is terrible. This is not the case. The food is outright AMAZING. Everything I ordered, I loved. It is fresh, wonderfully presented, and very delicious. The breakfast selection was something that I looked forward to every day, The lobster is out of this WORLD, and I think I ate it close to 5 times. The coffee is the best I have ever had, and we took some back with us to the United States.
In regards to the staff....I could go ON AND ON...I was truly sad when we left. I have never seen people who work so hard to make their guests happy. By the end of the week, we knew many of the staff's names and they knew ours. Is there a language barrier? Absolutely, but you have to TRY to learn...they enjoy it, and they want to learn English as well, and it can become a very educational experience. I had a hard time when we got back not saying "hola, como esta?" to every single person I pass by. From the cleaning staff, to the maintenance people, the wait staff....it was unbelievable. They tried their hardest to make us happy and did an incredible job of making us feel special for our entire stay. Special thanks to Peterson, Jacquline, Junior, Juan, Daniel, Jarlie for making our honeymoon unforgettable.
Some words of advice....be realistic. You are going to the Dominican Republic....are there mosquitos, yes. Is there a language barrier?...yes. Is the food different than what you are probably used to?....yes. Is this a 5 star luxury resort with marble floors, perfect air-conditioning, and a staff with perfect English?? NOOOOOO. However, if you are looking for a resort with beauty, character, charm, gorgeous scenery, amazing food, and a fabulous staff, you need to go here. It was the most amazing trip, and we hope to visit again.
