Great service and great stay,

The hotel and service was remarkable. I mean, I once dropped a fork and it seemed as though the waiter replaced it a half-second after hitting the ground. It really is the little things that make that service remarkable--and they nailed it! The food was fantastic,too! The beach is white sand and the juice bar is delicious. However, this is a hotel for quiet, lounging time. If you want entertainment, you can make the short walk to the adjacent catalonia hotels.

Great service and great stay, Great service and great stay,

Great Value

The weather was spectacular and the staff was gracious and hospitable. A special shout out to Juan Carlos who led the optional (but helpful) Spansh language lessons, and the beach-side darts tournament and ping pong tournament. There was much flexibility in dining opportunities, and the room accommodations were more than fine. Like most all-inclusive resorts, there is a push for more expensive upgrades upon arrival, but not a hard sell here. I would recommend another visit here for anyone who likes sandy beaches, beautifully maintained grounds and vegetation, and peace and quiet.

Fun trip

The resort was nice. Staff was friendly. The people trying to get you to sit in on a presentation about their exclusive club were very annoying. They were almost stalkers. They gave up after a few days. The beach was gorgeous and was not overcrowded. There was plenty of shade and nice places to sit/lay including several hammocks. The bartenders were amazing. They were friendly, provided excellent service and had fun personalities. The food was ok. I am a foodie so I understand they are trying to please the palates of the masses. Some of the food was rather bland but the seafood was excellent. Fresh fish, paella, mussels and shrimp were all very good and the fresh fruit is the best ever. The room was decent for the price. It had a bit of a musty smell but the bed was nice and the bathroom was clean. The biggest problem was the safe in the room did not work properly. They had to fix it twice. The second time it took someone a few hours to show up and you had to be in the room. I had to call the desk three times. The third time I was a bit inpatient. Overall it was a fun vacation.

Awesome Trip

This resort was the best of both worlds...The adult side was quiet and relaxing with restaurant style dining (No Buffet)...both pools were crisp and clean...the beach area was outstanding. The Ma Loo juice bar was our favorite morning stop after breakfast....fresh fruit smoothies made to order...Nightly entertainment in the courtyard was equally relaxing...guitar players, saxophonists and the like. Our room was as advertised with 24 hour room service and nightly turn down...fresh towels and toiletries everyday!! Decorated with fresh picked flowers each evening was a nice touch...We did venture over to the family side of the resort for shopping and libation on occasion...it was equally as beautiful though not as quiet. Cheap Caribbean did a great job with handling all the logistics which made the trip that much more relaxing.The wife and I will definitely use their services again.

What's to Love

It's an all-inclusive Dominican dream escape.

Chillaxing at the infinity pool with shaded, cushy loungers & hammocks on the beach.

The self-serve Bloody Marys and mimosas at breakfast.

Escaping via the spa: massages by the sea, Turkish baths and sauna.

 

What We'd Change

Casino Punta Cana closes at midnight, but the resort's club, Cats, and the bar by the pool are both open late for night owls.

 

Why You Should Go

It's 20 miles from the Punta Cana airport. Vacay cocktails will appear pronto.

Two gorgeous golf courses designed by Alberto Sola are near.

If you're up for meeting up with Lady Luck, there's a casino onsite.

Soana Island is an aahmazing excursion and is relatively near. So worth it.
