We did stay a month later this time (march) as opposed to last year (Feb) don't know if this had anything to do with the... More

The staff at the hotel is extremely nice and the beach is quite comfortable and gorgeous. The room was spacious and comfy. The food had an authentic dominican spice to it. Price to value its a great deal.
