We have nothing really negative to say about our stay. Check in and out was so easy and smooth. Rooms are adequate, beds are hard but pillows are good! Lots of water pressure and HOT water anytime. Food was ok nothing different than other places we have stayed. Crepes at the beach restaurant were my highlight along with a nightly...

A group of 8 (four couples) went down for a week. All 8 of us stayed in the villas towards the back of the property and they were very comfortable. Our air conditioner wasn't working properly when we arrived, but they worked on it immediately when we asked at the front desk. The villas are not as polished as some...

As is typical in the Dominican the food was not great. The good news is we didn't have to wait to get a seat for food. Beach and pool are great. The rooms were large and clean although could of used a coat of paint. For the price we paid this was value for the money paid and more than...

I will try to make this as short and to the point as I can... Before booking here ( we traveled March 3-10) the reviews were decent. After we booked we were reading nothing but negative reviews, mostly that everyone was getting sick. That was my main concern, and at one point I even tried to see if we could...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights; we booked the trip through Apple Vacations and thought it was decent for what we paid. While things were a little unorganized at times (ie check in), the staff were friendly, the rooms were decent, the food was alright, and I felt safe at the resort. Check in was hectic- there...

What happened here? The grounds of the resort were so beautiful but the positive remarks stop there. I was disappointing to see beautiful photos online only to arrive and realize this resort is lacking a capable operations manager. Check-in took over an hour. We had to stand in one line to get our room key and another to pay for...

My advise to you is to book else where. To write a review of this horrible resort would take way too long. After 5 rooms, paying for the upgrade, the bell boy breaking the wheel of my luggage, the very poor customer service you receive I have absolutely nothing good to say about this place. The list goes on and...
