This was our first trip to the DR. Unfortunately our flight was canceled causing us to lose an entire day, which started the trip off on the wrong foot. We arrived late at night, so check in was quick. It was too late for dinner so we ordered room service, which took about an hour or so. Our room was very pretty but smelled like someone left a wet swimsuit in the drawer all week, sorta gross.
The beach/pool are gorgeous and the service at both bars was wonderful. We mostly stayed on the beach. There was plenty of shade if needed. I was surprised by how big the waves were and it was somewhat windy, so if in the wrong spot the sand was kicking up in your face. Maybe the time of year, or maybe poor judgement expecting waters more like Mexico. Regardless, it was nice weather, no rain.
Breakfast was the best meal, although as others have said, the grill on the beach for lunch was perfect! We were able to get an outside table for breakfast each morning, which was nice overlooking the ocean.
Overall, this was a really nice place. A great getaway spot for our first trip away from our children. Glad we picked this resort!
