We selected the hotel as it is literally less than a fifteen minute walk or five minute ride to Universal Park. Making reservations for a family of five is typically difficult, as many facilities do not have adjoining rooms or suites. This hotel, however, was a very pleasant exception. The family suite was quite spacious and offers two bedrooms, each with a bathroom, a living room/kitchen with a full refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave. There are two double and one king beds, in addition to a good quality convertible bed in the living room. Room amenities include ample storage space, strong wifi signal and three flat screen TV’s. It is similar to many of the recent good quality resorts we attended in the Dominican Republic. The furnishings are clean and in good condition. Adequate parking is available as well as an outdoor pool, game room and adjoining TGI Friday’s restaurant.
The hotel staff was generally helpful and accommodating, they were able to recommend area restaurants in reasonable distance or delivery service. However corkscrews and bottle openers are nowhere to be found, so be prepared.
