Before my husband and I booked our honeymoon, we did lots of research and finally chose Zoetry Agua. We were excited just looking at the photos on the website and reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. But none of what we read could have prepared us for the fabulous experience we would have from the moment we arrived!
Much has already been said about the beautiful rooms, delicious food, excellent service and gorgeous beach. What I would like to highlight is the vibe of total relaxation and warm hospitality that we felt at this resort. Because it is small, the service is extremely personal. We got to know the front desk staff and many of our servers, including David, Jeremy, Manuel, and Pedro- who made a point of remembering and preparing our favorite foods and drinks, and always made us feel like we were family. There were ample palapas on the beach, always an abundance of fresh towels, and someone available to help us at every turn...from Victor, Willy, Jordana, Rosaura, Adelaida, and Kelvis to the rest whose names I can't remember- all the staff were really nice. We also loved the strolling musicians and the couples massage on the beach (by Rafaella and Yuri), which was excellent.
This is the place to go if you are looking for peace and quiet, not lots of excitement and activity. If your idea of a good time is lying in a hammock, walking on the beach, getting a massage or napping under a palapa, you will love it. If you're looking for wild nightlife and lots of water sports, you might be bored.
If you do decide to go, splurge on the oceanfront room. We stayed in room #50 on the top floor. It was incredibly relaxing to lounge on the porch with the endless view of the ocean and hear the sound of the waves crashing at night while we slept!
The beach at Zoetry blows other resorts in Punta Cana out of the water. It's clean and the water is calm and swimmable all day long. Because the nearest resorts are a hike down the beach in either direction, there is a feeling of total seclusion.
Only two small complaints, neither of which would keep me from going back in a heartbeat. 1. The resort sprays for mosquitoes every night at sunset and it would be nice if there was a bell or an announcement that went off on the property to give you time to get back to your room so you don't get stuck running through the insecticide fogger. Even though they say it's safe to breathe it, I don't want to be fumigated. 2. The beach on either side of the property is littered with plastic bottles and other junk that has either washed up from the sea or been dumped there. It would be nice to see Zoetry, along with the adjoining resorts (Sivory and Excellence) get together and share the commitment and responsibility for maintaining those beaches, to protect the valuable and fragile nature of this beautiful slice of the world.
Two travel tips: It can be helpful to learn a little bit of Spanish before you go to the Dominican Republic. It goes a long way towards helping you connect with the people and understanding the culture. I think this is true wherever you travel. Also, be flexible and don't let little things upset you. Slow down and enjoy the pampering, because before you know it you'll be at home, working and cooking and cleaning and you'll wish you were back at Zoetry...
All in all, an outstanding vacation! Can't wait to go back!
