It is a hotel with four stars quality despite it is a five stars ranked hotel. Food and general situation could be better, but its location is very good. It is necessary to clean up the spaces of that hotel and increase food and infrastructure. In general, it was a good place to get some fun and a rest.

We are ready to go back!

Air Transat gives you a tourist visa while you are on the plane. You need this to enter the country.

When you arrive at the airport you may be directed to a representative and they will give you some info on the country. Then they will tell you how you can save 50% on your excursions. They tell you that you will be taken to the Royalton hotel for breakfast and then tour around to see the hotel and take pictures. Then you book your excursions and go back to your hotel. It's much more than that. We knew what they were up to but figured we could save alot of money because we wanted to do so many excursions. They give you a tour and try to get you to join their travel club. Very expensive. We knew what to expect so we went along with their game. Listened to them, had breakfast and saved a ton of money.

We enjoyed our stay at Barcelo very much. Hotel has everything that you need. Beach was soft and cool on our feet. Always chairs available.

If you go on the Buggy excursion bring something to cover your face. Lots of mud and it gets everywhere. Expect to see children along the way begging for money.

The Saona Island trip is worth the price. Beautiful place but no snorkelling. If you want to snorkel go to Catalina Island.

No cash is used at the hotel. Things bought are charged to your room.

The restaurants were wonderful. Reserve them as soon as you check in because they fill up fast. I wasn't crazy about La Fuenta. The acoustics were not great. The music they were playing was too loud and the waiters were always talking to each other. We had trouble hearing each other. But the food was good.

The buffet Caribe was awesome. So many choices. Excellent quality food, deliciously prepared. Everything you could imagine. Even a picky eater will find something to eat. They even had bagels and cream cheese AND SMOKED SALMON!!! They always had low calorie and vegetarian options and a selection of local fare.
