We just got back last night and I cannot explain how much we loved this vacation. We were a family with 2 teenage boys. After we read the reviews we knew to book all our specialty restaurants the day we arrived. We got 6:30 or 6:45 reservations every night except for the first night which was 10:30 at the Steakhouse....

I'd ignore the reviewers who either hated or raved about this property. It's hard to imagine that anybody with any degree of patience got absolutely terrible service. It's true that the service isn't up to western 5-star standards, but it's the D.R. and I doubt that exists in that culture. My Spanish is minimal, if that, but I tossed around...

I cannot stop bragging about this place to my friends. From the moment we walked in until the moment we left, we were in paradise. We were greeted with smiles and a nice, icy beverage to begin our trip. Our check-in personnel couldn't be nicer and so was our porter. When we walked to our room and saw the beautiful...

It is an amazing resort, great service, wonderful food, look forward to going back again. One can eat a different restaurant every night of the week and still not eat at all of them. Enjoyed the entertainment, the pools and they have this amazing train that takes you from one part of the resort to another.

We have stayed at this property twice. The service has really declined; it was fair during the first visit and terrible during the second. As other reviews have stated, rooms are never ready on time and the accommodations are always mixed up. The supervisor tried to locate us far away from the main area of the resort. Suffice it to...

I first want to say the room and the resort was beautiful but that's where it ends. The problem came with the "all inclusive" meals. My wife and I were there for 5 days and were only able to eat dinner at one of the restaurants 2 out of our 5 nights. This resort is huge and holds a lot...
