We stayed at this resort from the May 7 to May 12. The resort is located right on a small beach that is never very crowded. We were premium level which meant we had access to a private bar and check in area, as well as we had a room with a larger patio and an amazing view over the...

The staff is amazing, rooms are beautiful! I enjoyed the food. They especially went out of their way to make my birthday special. The resort is filled with wildlife. If you are a beach person, their property does not have much. It is a short ride to a local, beach town with shopping and local culture. If you are elderly...

Overall we had a great time. The main concern was the food selection. We had hoped that their was more of a selection. The drinks seemed very watered down and took 6-7 to get any type of buzz. You do need a DJ at the pool. We listened to Bob Marley on repeat for at least 2 hours. The staff...

Way better than Occidental Punta Cana - what a huge difference! Staff, room, atmosphere and quality of food were awesome. This resort has stairs and definitely not for the mobile challenged folks. Also need elevators at 4 storey bulding.

We visited the resort on a day pass while we were at a friends condo nearby. We met some nice people and got to see their accommodations. They were very nice. The food was good and the drinks and service were great.

This trip was fantastic. The resort was beautiful and full of local wildlife. Great food and drink with and extremely friendly and helpful staff. The local town was also good for both day time and some night life. I would highly recommend the excursion of zip lining and the volcanic spa and mud bath.
