Bed is so comfortable that we slept 10 hours per night. Only ate at buffet. Changed every night. They have Italian, seafood and Gluten free every day. Ate salads...

This was our third time in Dom Rep having previously stayed at Dreams in La Romana and Punta Cana. This is an older hotel and on the Atlantic coast, both of which are important to note. This was the cheapest of our three trips by some distance but still value for money. The hotel is clean and the staff are...

Great food at this hotel and the staff lovely. All areas of the grounds really well kept cannot fault it. The only reason I gave it four stars and not five is the sunbed situation, we never went to breakfast untill 9.00 and at this time not a sunbed to be had.
