I actually visited this resort in 2014 and it was amazing!!!!! The pool entertainment and the shows were awesome. The food was great. This resort has so many pools and bars. The shows were the best part; the theatre was well set up. Great place. Truly underrated.

We were a fairly large group and expected that they would be prepared to handle that at check-in and check-out... nope! Rooms: Superior Rooms were quite lovely (and recently renovated). Service (rooms): No complaints Service (Restaurants): Can always find something you will like in the buffet which was plentiful. The Mexican A la Carte was great. Service (Front Desk): TERRIBLE…...

Stayed on April 2-9/17 for the first and last time. This is not due to cleanliness, food concerns, niceness of staff but because of "Dominican Day" where the resort allowed venders to set up their wares - which would have been fine BUT felt accosted by these venders. I was unable to get to my room due to being surrounded...

They are in the midst of renovations so a lot of the resort is brand new. I stayed in a newly renovated, clean, spacious room. The staff are extremely helpful, friendly and super fun (especially the bartenders). Great place for couples, small groups and even single, solo people. I highly recommend this resort for anyone looking to stay in a...

I did not book this hotel for vacation, so keep that in mind when reading my remarks. I was sent here by Delta airlines when our flight was delayed over night. We arrived at the resort (over a half hour ride from the airport) at nearly 10:30 p.m. at night. Two bus loads of people. The resort staff did their...

I visited the hotel for the second time in less than a year. This time our group was smaller but the experience was equally wonderful. It is a very nice feeling to see familiar faces and get recognized. The service was expectacular, the new rooms are very beatiful and the pizzas at Pikalo are truly addictive. The third visit is...

At first I was really sceptic to go here because of some of the reviews! We stayed here for 9 days and really had a good time! The staff is top notch and working really hard to make your stay as pleasant as possible!(their English isn't that great but Google translate helped allot). The food from the buffet is good...

Very large resort; there is construction of additional units going up everywhere. The large, open space that you see when you walk to the beach has been cleared, and it looks like quite a few more units will be built. The construction noise is not excessive, but with the new units going up, that might change. We stayed in the...
