  • 6.0.Good

    The only good food you will find is at the steakhouse restaurant. The staff were friendly. there was nothing to do other then eat drink swim and watch the lame shows they put every night sometimes even just music. But the property itself is beautiful. there was a roach in our room, and the room was not clean.

  • 6.0.Good

    As always the staff in the Dominican Republic are friendly and respectful. I found there to be little or nothing to do besides lay around the beach and/or pool. Where was the entertainment? There should be more than games at the end of the night. The Covid testing situation was a bit frustrating. The front desk gave us walking directions to the location that consisted of letting two females leave the resort and walk nearly half a mile to blindly find a location. There should be signs, there should be a shuttle, there should be an easier way that would help people feel safer. When returning I walked on the beach which proved to be easier and safer than leaving the resort. You must make this process much more convenient for your guest.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    A resort with beautiful architecture, fountains, and garden. The pools are a bit boring. An ideal candidate if you prefer not having a lot of noisy children around. Staff members at the front desk are very helpful and have a solution for every problem, especially Yaslanda, Joseph, and Angel.
