Revisited Playa E in March after a November trip. Still as wonderful as before. This time we were in SOL1, which I believe is just terrific. We also stayed two nights in Rocosa which is also great, but I'm a beach person (my wife also) and for a beach person SOL1 has no equal. I decided on this trip, this...

We stayed in Luna Penthouse for 8 nights, celebrating both my birthday and our wedding ceremony and fiestas. Our 33 guests, some if whom are extremely hard to please, all had an amazing time. We had a cocktail party, rehearsal dinner, and wedding dinner at the hotel and they did a beautiful job on the food and decorations. The wedding...

This place was by far better than our honeymoon in St. Lucia. I almost don't want to write this review because I want it to be our secret place. The staff is so welcoming, almost like you are guest in their home. Love the bartenders and wait staff so accommodating. Each room is so unique, we stayed the whole time...

We just returned from a weeks stay in an ocean side room, Sol 1. It was the most beautiful location we have ever been. We felt like we were the only ones there for the first few days, both crazy and wonderful! Then, closer to the weekend as more people came it still never felt crowded. The staff feels more...

My husband and I stayed there last week for 3 days and it was remarkable. I picked this hotel on a whim based on the Trip Advisor reviews, which was a bit risky in my mind but now I am glad I did.
