We stayed at the Bachata in Feb. Found the service staff to be amazingly friendly. Rosario in in buffet was a bright star in our stay. Entertainment group, on the other hand was oblivious to us as guests, not returning smiles or holas. Shows were not very good. Rooms are very clean, beach is shaded. Food was good, not great,...

We travel quite often and believe this resort to be a solid 4 star Dominican standards. Staff was pleasant when we had to deal with them. Bartenders are amazing at every location. Pool bar is where we spent lots of...

This is an older resort, and it occasionally shows. The style is dated, and the dining rooms are lit by bright white lights, that make them look like cafeterias. There was no water on four brief occasions. The beach is nice enough but not white sand. There is a lot of shade which is good for those that need it....
