    Stay somewhere else …

    If your looking for a 5 star resort, this is NOT it. Unsure how this is 5 star… 3 at best. Room was outdated. Bed was very uncomfortable that my back hurt every morning. Our room didn’t have any hot water until my husband complained, twice. When we finally got hot water there was zero pressure behind it. Pool needs some serious attention. Missing tiles, chunks missing from the bottom. There was also many steps in the pool that weren’t noticeable and I watched many people fall. They really should be pained a different colour. Swim up bar had weird step to it. Stubbing toe or scrapping skin was very common. Food was mediocre at best. I would even say, bad. The “best” food was in the lobby. The restaurant menus on their website are extremely inaccurate so it was very hard to make decisions on dinner. Nothing was ever as described. Drinks at the bar were strong but cheap booze. The blended drinks were the best. Small amount of chairs around the pool and everyone puts there towel on them early. There is about 5 umbrellas. A lot of chairs are left without shade which is unfortunate given the fact that it’s HOT & SUNNY! Beach is shaded but FULL of seaweed. Any daytime entertainment was lacking. It would be one exercise in the pool & that was it. No music playing during the day, nothing. Night life was okay. Everything stopped by 11/1130 which is great when you want to go sleep at a decent time. You could access the other side which had all of the entertainment, Casino, Disco & some shops. But you had to walk. Honestly, it wasn’t the worst vacation but it I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. The only saving grace was our awesome housekeeper, Yanet and the bartenders. My suggestions for this resort; -make your menus accurate on your website -more umbrellas -more daytime entertainment

    Our first Dominican vacation

    The resort was lovely and very clean with beautiful grounds. Our building felt close to everything, however we paid for Privilege and when we checked in I guess they did not have a privileged room available so we took the room that was available and were told we would be moved the next day. The next day we checked back at reception and were told yes we would be moving but then later that day got a message that it would have to wait until the following day. At that point didn’t seem worth it to pack back up and I was going to be standing in a wedding onsite and didn’t want to have to deal with moving rooms. We weren’t told until we requested a late check out that our room was not in the privileged section (we still got late checkout, just were unaware that we weren’t in the level of room we had paid for). Given that this was our honeymoon it was a bit disappointing, but realistically there was nothing wrong with the room that we were given and from the looks of pictures not much difference between the rooms. We did still get all the perks of Privilege. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet at Thalassa and the different lunch options. Martha was a sweetheart and we often tried to sit in her section. Dinners we mostly spent on the family side and enjoyed those offerings. The drinks were always yummy and plenty of choice. The amount of loungers around both pools was a bit of an issue. It seemed people got up early to reserve them and by 7am there was hardly anything left - if any at all. There also weren’t a lot of options with shade. I will say we never had a problem with this on the beach or on the family side. Overall a decent stay but honestly not outstanding as I have experienced at other resorts and in other countries. Don’t regret going but might check out another resort if we return to Punta Cana.

    It was OK, some improvements to be made in the customer service department.

    The food took a long time to come out. We waited over an hr and 30 min for our main dish. We were then too full to really eat our main diah. I understand it's an all inclusive resort but would have liked to take our left over food back to.our room.There were only a hand full on people when we got there and it took a long time to be waited on.
