My Opinion

All the food was good except the burgers and hotdogs by the pool. Best bartenders was Victor at Curacao bar and Wanda at the Casino bar both super nice/friendly. Wi-Fi worked great all over the resort except in the rooms. The rooms where up to date and cleaned everyday know issues at all. Only thing the resort need is something for handy cap people like wheel chairs because my aunt hurt her leg on a tour outside the resort. Luckily they had a golf cart that the bell boys used for luggage are we would have been in trouble.

So So

First arriving to the resort, staff were welcoming and friendly (touch up on your Spanish though). When we got to our room, the first thing we noticed was the smell. It smelled like well water. There was a thermostat but the room never really cooled down. The room looked nice, nothing extravagant but not "janky". It was hard to get wash rags (I forgot my own). My favorite was the showers ! Hot and amazing power streams. Outside of the rooms, the resort looked beautiful and clean. Nice pools and the beach was nice and had plenty of cabanas and lounge chairs. The bars didn't make the drinks strong (and I'm a lightweight). The buffet was very selective. All you can eat but not many options. It didn't have many Dominicana food options which sucked. Room service also didn't have many options so don't count on it if you miss out on the restaurant. The casino was fun and had stronger drinks. We missed out on the late night shows they had but seemed interesting. The excursions were fun ! But ended too soon. I enjoyed my experience here but wouldn't book here again at this resort. This is not an upscale resort. And the workers are VERY persistent and pushy with the outside sales.

Family Vacation

This was our first family vacation to an island. Our 20 and 18 year old had a great time. The Entertainment staff is the best! They have you involved as much as you want dancing, playing games and just having fun. Laflasha, Robert, Chocalata and Evelyn were awesome. The snorkeling right off the beach was amazing! Angel Fish, flounder, sting rays and other schools of fish to be seen everyday. The hotel grounds were kept immaculate and very tropical with the ponds of fish, turtles and birds along with all the mango and coconut trees. The only negatives we had were the pool bar didn't have enough staff and the drinks were to sweet and not enough options. Great vacation and hope we can get back there again!

Resort very pretty. Dinning was always slow on orders but food was great. Everyone was very nice and helpful and our room's AC was cool and everything worked as it should the bed slept great. The only problem we had was checking in it was a nightmare and very unorganized but other than that one problem the resort was great. We would go back in a heart beat.

What's to Love

All-inclusive beauty on the posh white sands in Punta Cana.

Noble Beach Prize Winner for "The Bomb-est Bar" (2015-2016). Ask for "The Sandy" at PURE on the beach.

Blue pools, blue ocean and lots of sunshine make working on your tan easy.

Sippin' on a fresh juice made from locally grown fruits from the juice bar on the beach.

 

What We'd Change

Like any huge resort, it's a bit of a walk from the beach to the lobby. Luckily, the beautiful landscaping makes the scenic stroll soothing.

 

Why You Should Go

Just a zippy twenty minutes from the airport. A welcome cocktail is waiting.

You can snag a one hour golf intro class. You might as well fine-tune your swing.

Privileged guests get an exclusive lounge, 24-hour room service, preferred access at restaurants & more.

Don't miss booking a beachside massage under a palapa. Ahhhh-somely relaxing.
