We were here from 20th of august trough 23th of august 2014. I have read some reviews and was thinking that it can't be that bad. O was i wrong!!!!!! When we arrived at the hotel it was as if you need them and they don't need you!!! The service is horrible and as others has stated the air conditioning is a one setting for all situation. At first it was only hot and at around 4 to 5 a.m.began to get a little bit cold. I asked and asked but nobody can do nothing about it because it's only on setting for all and take it or leave it. The 3 restaurants are not bad if you can get a chance to get in one of them!!!. tables are limited. You have to get up at 7 to 730 to go down and reserve a spot at the restaurant or forget-it you'll be eating a very low budget Dominican food buffet. What you see as advertisement is not what you get. The nice tippi bar on top of the sea is not free it's a paid restaurant. Not bad but at least tell tourists in advance. The Dominican show is good to see. The snacks are a raw hamburger and fries or a hot-dog at the beach bar. If i had known all these issues i have gone to The Barcelo Hotels where i at least get some service. There is no other type of attraction you can go to besides a Ole Supermarket( $45 to 50 dollars rip off ). To go to Santo Domingo were there's something to do will cost you about $70 to 80 dollars. The only thing what was nice was the balcony of the beach side and the beach. The pool pumps are not circulating the water at all so it looks like a dirty pool. I have been quit a bit to the Dominican republic my wife is Dominican but even she was surprised this time with the bad service and food beside the restaurants that you have to get up early to reserve as mentioned. If you go down at about 9 to 9.30 forget it. One thing i know for sure is that i'll be staying somewhere else next time. I rather advice you to go to Punta Cana, Puerto Plata or Santo Domingo where there's more to do.
