Ok we went this week for one of our mini "escapes" and have done this at this resort before. If you booked a ridiculous rate like we did with Cheap Caribbean you certainly got your money's worth and then some. If you booked with a time share exchange or at a more normal rate you probably were disappointed. I will...

To begin ....... we arrived on a Sunday. ~On Sundays they host a welcome party. This welcome party is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. The show was awesome. The performances were beyond anything I expected (from the "white man group" to the fire dancers to the disco and limbo party). The food was excellent and the liquor was plentiful and strong. ~ We were...

This was my first time in Puerto Plata and I absolutely loved it!

The VIP beaches, pools and restaurants are awesome! Serenity...

We got the blue bracelets. The room was just fine. Being entitled to eat only at the buffets got a bit old. Having only one bar for free drinks was inconvenient. Closing the pools at 6:30PM with nothing to do in the evenings except drink and party seemed unnecessary. Having no chairs or lounges on the beach meant either sitting...

I didn't know what to expect when I booked this trip.
