College Spring Breaker Reccomends to Others

I am a college student and stayed at this resort with six other friends on our spring break. The resort was a reasonable deal for us and was easy to book. The staff at the hotel was for the most part nice but wasn't very helpful when we had questions and we found it hard to communicate. When we first arrived there was no direction of where to go and took a while to get into our rooms and we spent a lot time waiting for more information. With that being said, the best service came from the bartenders who were fun and also didn't hesitate to make our experience as great as they could. Our rooms were clean for the most part. The buffet was okay and the three reservations we booked we ended up eating really late to get served decent food. We always felt safe at the resort; even at night walking around the resort there were always guards and workers that helped get us home safe. As for the nightlife, the karaoke bar was the highlight. I would definitely recommend this resort to other college students that want a relaxing but also fun place to stay!

very nice but TOO big

The resort is very nice overall. The beach is beautiful but super crowded, it is really hard to get a chair, which would be fine but there really is nowhere that is just open sand to lay a towel. If you don't get there early to get a chair it is really hard to find anywhere to sit, stand, lay...just pretty much have to go in the water. Bartenders are very friendly and the drinks really are all inclusive- unlike a lot of places where you can only get a few items for the all-inclusive. The food left a lot to be desired as you need a reservation for anything sit down and since we only stayed 2 days we only got 2 sit down meals. Maiko was not very good...and Cappriccio was delicious but also basically buffet. They only bring your main course. I would much rather less selection but actually get to sit down and relax and be served,,,it is vacation, right? Overall we had a great time but there were just too many people, the resort was too big, and it felt like we were just one of a million guests at a mid-grade hotel. Our trip was great but I would not recommend this resort.

Very enjoyable spring break!

Decided to book a last minute all inclusive to Punta Cana with my daughter for spring break. The resort was average. We were delayed to get into our room because they were still cleaning. This was well beyond check in time. The rooms were just okay. Could use some updating but housekeeping was wonderful on cleaning your room everyday. The beaches were absolutely breathtaking. The beach was impeccable. They had employees constantly raking the sand to remove any seaweed. Drinks were tasty. Not very strong but I was fine with that. My biggest issue with this resort and why I probably won't go there again was the food. You can't make reservations to the more upscale restaurants until check in and at that point everything was booked. We booked two dinners at 9:30 and 9:45 in the evening. When I told them of my displeasure they told me to eat a little dinner at the buffet earlier so I won't be so hungry. We were waking up early to go on excursions, we didn't want to eat so late. We ended up eating at the buffet each time but one. The buffet was good and very nice but pretty much all the same. The one night we went to their Dominican outdoor restaurant. We went about an hour and a half early to see if we could get in and there were plenty of empty tables. So why the major trouble to get a reservation? I still don't get it. My food was delicious, my daughters not so much. I wish we were able to try the different restaurants but that never happened. Overall I'm glad we went and got away but don't expect more then the buffet.

Very enjoyable spring break! Very enjoyable spring break!

Fun in the sun

The folks from cheap Caribbean were very helpful. The resort was beautiful . The resort service was ok. They were lazy and slow. And the people trying to sell you thing got annoying fast. But the cheap Caribbean employees were the best. Very helpful. Our flight got cancelled and they helped us every step of the way.
