    Fantastic Facility

    The housekeeping was excellent. My wife and I can't think of a thing that we would want done differently. In fact, all the staff have been excellent, always quick to understand your needs and doing their best to accommodate. The rooms were kept immaculate, and the pool area was clean and inviting. Will add that the food at the pool was excellent and a great buy for the money.

    They’ll nickel and dime you

    Overall a decent stay until check-out when the front desk lady, Vianey, and her supervisor, Jair, demanded that we pay an extra “service fee” for each day of our stay totaling about $80. This fee was not listed on our booking details or the all-inclusive contract we signed at check-in. They couldn’t show us where we agreed to the charge and wouldn’t let us leave until we paid it. Although management is slimy, we received exceptional service from several employees: Josue, Christian, Ramon, Aaron, Isaac, and Raul.

    Beautiful trip!!!!

    Where do I even begin?!!! Let’s start with the basics. All of the food we had was great. The rooms were cleaned everyday. The ocean view rooms have such an amazing view of the whole ocean. The resort itself is very clean and the staff is very attentive. If you need something, someone will be there to help you. Literally every employee had a smile on their face at all times and was helpful. The pools are clean and super relaxing. There is no music by the pool so it is definitely a resort to come to if you want to relax- I wouldn’t consider it a party resort by any means. The only thing we didn’t like was there are people who come up to you while lounging on the beach trying to sell you things. The resort can’t control this but it made the beach area less relaxing. This review is mainly for JAIME The chief butler. I planned a really special surprise sunset dinner for my fiancé and JAIME went ABOVE AND BEYOND not only with this dinner but made us feel special for our whole trip. Anytime I needed something, he magically appeared. It’s very obvious he loves his job and loves helping people. For the sunset dinner, we had Roberto serve us and he was LOVELY. It truly was a perfect night and trip thanks to these two amazing people. The food during this dinner was so so good. I ordered a cheese cake for the dinner and it was HUGE and tasted so good/fresh. We were celebrating our anniversary and we received multiple cakes with “happy anniversary” written on the plate. The morning we were leaving, Esmeralda at La Casona brought us a cake that said “have a nice trip.” I’ve never received this level of thoughtfulness at an all inclusive resort. It was so sweet! As you enter the resort, you are greeted with “Welcome Home” and this really did feel like home from beginning to end! Thank you especially to Jaime and the rest of the crew at La Estancia!!
