I am 19 and i went with my friends to this resort. We had the best bartender, Omar. The nightlife was amazing and we all had a great time. The drinks were good, and if you want top shelf liquor, you must request it and they provide it in your drinks for no charge. Its always smart to tip your... More

I am extremely disappointed with the major setbacks I had during my August trip to Punta Cana. Instead of a relaxing trip of a life time, I look back and see a nightmare. It all began when I walked into my room which wasn't ready until an hour after I checked in (at 5pm). The toilet handle, fan, and clock... More
