We loved the service & friendly staff at the resort. The food was excellent. We especially liked the royal treatment we received. The World Welcome party was off the chain and the Sunday party leaves you speechless. My family made friends for life there. Now our children want to live in D.R. We loved the water aerobics with John Cena...

The location was beautiful, nice beach, great pools. Room was so-so. Definitely less than I'd expect from an international resort. The toilet flushed very poorly, the shower was terrible, and the ceiling dripped water; it took 3 calls to get that fixed. The food was OK, but seldom hot. Long line-up for omelets every day. REALLY disappointed in the lack...

Went with a group of 5 25 year old girls, 2 moms and my grandmother, had a blast with everyone. Having the VIP membership is the only way to do it! The vip beaches, pools,...

This is my 4th visit to Dominican republic since September 2013. My first time at this resort. Reception was friendly. I was upgraded to a junior suite. The room was large and very clean. Only odd thing was no shower curtain so a lot of water was on the floor daily. The maid (siri parra) was wonderful. Rooms 4114+4112 highly...
