You get what you pay for....

Overall this place is ok....we had a good time because we were there with friends, but I would not come back. Pool was nice but only one pool to choose from unless you upgrade, which was the only real benefit to upgrading. I missed having a swim up bar for sure. If you come here bring a cooler cup because the cups are so tiny. There is no real mixed drinks, just the frozen stuff that they poor booze into. Barcelo was the best rum they had. Rooms were acceptable for the price, bed is comfy, hot water take a long time so start it 10 minutes before you want to get in. Towels are a real issue, you have to play around with a towel card and exchange a towel to get a new one for the beach. Most of the time they didn't have new towels to give you. The beach was very pretty and definitely the water is nice to swim in, however they only maintain the grounds they own, so past the resort grounds it's a mess, trash everywhere, they could keep it up 100 yards further and it would be nicer. Food was average, nothing stood out as great. Of six people we went with, all but me got sick before we left. I wasn't expecting much based on what we paid but the fact that 5 of 6 people were sick was disappointing. We went to saona island which was the most beautiful beach I have seen, go there! I'd suggest researching to stay somewhere closer to this area, the resorts we stopped at on our way here seemed much nicer. Overall the mananagement here is a hot mess and they need some organization, it felt chaotic and not as relaxing as we would have liked.

Emotions Resort

The check in process at this location was terrible, without a doubt a very slow and confused group of individuals. The reservation was confirmed 3 weeks before arrival by a local with the front desk however; upon arrival this reservation could not be found. Upon request the reservation information provided by this website was forward thru email to front desk supervisor. 2 hours later I still had no room, attempt to call customer support at this website was unsuccessful with excessive hold time beyond 20 minutes. Front desk took copy of passport yet asked my last name 4 times within 20 minutes standing at front desk by the same person. Eventually the hotel did provide a room on the backside of the adult section facing the children playground. The remainder of my stay was excellent, the staff apart from the front desk all were exceptional. Once inside you will have a great time but it appears if you do not book through Emotions website they will make you wait.

wonder about cheap Caribbean negotiations

Although my reservation was confirmed by Cheap Caribbean by email and voice, confirmed thru local contact with Emotions it was not in Emotions data base. Check in at hotel was approximately 2 hours, and that was after 3pm. I attempted to reach Cheap Caribbean by phone to address issue but due to excessive hold time, greater the 20 minutes, released call and front desk eventually produced a room key. Of course that was after checking my passport 4 times and asking my last name equal amount of times. This was the only problem experienced at this location. The remainder of staff, Yorky, Gloriana, Louis etc were all exceptional. The food was very good and the beach clean. All the staff, outside of front desk, were exceptionally accommodating and always greeted with a smile. I would heartily recommend this resort with one caveat; if booking from this site don't expect to reach anyone in a timely manner and be patient when checking into hotel. It was apparent front desk delayed my check in, and others, that had not booked directly through their website.

Some of the wines and beers are an additional cost at the bars Oak and Milwaukee, but you get so much with the all-inclusive perks that it's ok to splurge on a premium beer.
