    Amazing vacation!

    It was our first trip to Dominican Republic. Very happy to choose this place! Extremely peaceful, convenient and awesome views! We are very satisfied with food quality and choice! The resort has all necessary facilities, the staff is friendly, the beach is cleaned and the water is warm and shallow. 7 days just flew so fast, hope we will be able to return again once))

    Sorry it is closing…

    This was my second visit to this resort (first time was 12 years ago). I visited March 2-9, on a two meal plan. Although I have been to many resorts in the Caribbean and Mexico, this is my favourite hotel. It is small, close to town and has great views. The food is still excellent, even though it is no longer all inclusive ( less waste anyway in my opinion). The hotel is bright, clean, with many places to lounge ( terrace, pool, small beach). The staff is very friendly. I will miss it and hope that employees can return once new ownership is established. Thank you for a memorable holiday!

    Wonderful vacation!

    This has been a truly wonderful vacation. I bought the almost all inclusive and I can’t tell what is not included! The lobby bar is a peaceful place for pre-dinner cocktails, the pool always has chaises available. The breakfast and dinner restaurant has lots of choices and we have never gone hungry. The lunch restaurant serves huge meals and we have found that at midday all we really want is fruit and/or ice cream. Too hot for much more than that! The hotel is exceptionally clean (except the pool itself). The beach was very disappointing and it’s worth doing at least one or two excursions to other beaches in the area. We did two excursions: whale watching half day, and national park/caves/beach. Both tours were exceptional! We would like to thank Enmundo (air Canada rep), Maria at the front desk (an angel and a delight!), Victor who works at the restaurants (who is very professional, and attentive), the bar tenders (Esteban at the Lobby bar and someone whose name I didn’t catch at the pool bar) who are always smiling and make great banana mamas! The one thing I wish was that the tourists would tip more. I realize it’s not part of every other culture, and some others think that because it’s all-inclusive (or almost), tipping is not required. Given how hard the employees work, how little they get paid, it’s a nice token. We left $3 for our maid daily, $3 at breakfast and lunch, and $5 at dinner. $5 from each of us for half day excursion and $10 for full day. We always tipped the bartenders too. USD only. They can’t use Canadian coins.

    This hotel is scheduled for closure.

    BEWARE This hotel is closing and will reopen under a new brand. This rebuild is due to the creation of a new harbour which will accommodate cruise ships. Good for the economy, probably bad for the whales. In the interim, facilities at this hotel are minimal, rooms are tired, our jacuzzi bathtub was broken and only one cafeteria style restaurant is open.
