The resort is large (700 rooms), but not crowded together. Grounds are beautiful and meticulously maintained. Restaurants are typical of Dominican Republic - okay, but not great. Public bathrooms are very clean, but too few in number. Bars are very good. Pool is large and clean, but opens late (9 am); no good for early-bird swimmers. Very nice coffee shop...

The beach is beautiful, lots of chairs, real palm trees and the water is perfect. The resort is a nice size, food is good to very good, the Caribbean restaurant...

First interaction with the hotel was to make them aware of an allergy and to ask advice on what I could do on our anniversary whilst at the resort. The guest...

Everything was good only bad was check in and wifi was slow. Hector our bell boy was excellent!!! I would go back. Good service and resort was nice. It wasn't too big just the right size. Only thing that sucks is the pool and beach closes at 6PM. Overall great experience.

The hotel was pretty, but some systems didn't make sense. You can only do sit down meals a certain amount of night and had to presen a piece of paper.For the beach towels you had to carry around a card and can only get a towel if you presented the card
