As a couple in our early 20s this was our first trip to the Caribbean travelling from the UK and we did not pay a great more than you would for a 4 star all inclusive in Europe.

If you are english speaking, they do not like you, and do not treat you well. As someone who vacations regularly, I have never been on tripadvisor to leave a comment, but this one deserves it. Tips are EXPECTED, and even though we did tip, we were ignored regularly. Rooms have no hot water, and very few english speaking channels....

This hotel was recommended to me by my agent so I waited for a good deal to come along and booked. I had been to the DR 3 times by that point and really wanted to visit Punta Cana as I had heard great things about the beaches. The hotel itself is nice, the pools are clean and the food...

We previously stayed in Punta Cana at the Gran Bahia and this resort is nothing like that. Our check in was a bit of a mess, which seems par for the course here....They kept asking for our hotel voucher which I was not provided with from Transat, but they finally just took my emails and confirmation numbers and started to...
