I stayed here for 4 days and 3 nights. The room was adequate, nothing spectacular, but comfortable and clean. I had a room on the ground floor with direct access to the pool, which also gave the pool direct access to my room. Even with this situation, I felt comfortable moving around the resort, safe. The staff was nice and spoke enough english. Had blue margaritas at the bar, buffet style meals mostly, nothing amazing, but the spaghetti sauce was very tasty.
The beach is nice, very nice weather! The vendors didn't approach me one time, you just nod them away from a distance and they dont bother.
Super close to the airport, Id repeat. Sat out on my deck area, poolside saturday night with the dj up in the disco, easy to talk with friend. Had some wonderful times here, would repeat.
Id say the safe in the room did NOT have a lock and that kinda bugged me, the shower had hot water, but you had to run the water for like 5 minutes before it reaches the room from the heater. Didn't venture out of the resort, cant say anything about the surroundings.
Would repeat, but I think I wanna try La Romana area next.
