Great Vacation!

Overall we had an amazing honeymoon, the biggest down fall was the language barrier. We expected more people to speak English but they did not. We had a very hard time finding people who could understand us and us understand them. We luckily found Lenny who works in the dive shop on the beach who spoke English and we went to him for all our excursions and with any questions or help we needed. It was very disappointing that so little of the resort staff spoke English because when ordering room service, the front desk and the woman who cleaned our room all spoke ZERO English. We wanted our TV changed to English and they sent a repair man who also did not speak English. I HIGHLY suggest booking your hotel transportation before arriving, we did not and had to deal with sketchy cab drivers. Also, I would wait to book your excursions until you get there because they are 1/4 of the price once you get there, and if you book more than 1 at a time you save even more money. Online they wanted $250 per person for Saona Island, we paid $80 per person there. So find 1 person and book everything through them at one time. We spent a total of $360 on 3 different excursions for 2 people! I suggest doing the Saona Island, we also rented the mini speed boats and did the Buggie excursion which were both OK. The pictures made them both seem more fun than what they actually were.

The good: clean, employees were nice and most spoke English and Spanish. Beach and pools were wonderful. Drinks were good too. No problems getting a chair on the beach or the pools. Attentive bartenders. Biggest complaint is the food. The Buffett was not very appetizing and most if the food at the restaurants were waaaaay too salty. I couldn't even finish my steak. The on,y meal I enjoyed was our last night at the Mexican restaurant. If you go to the buffet, they serve you the drinks and sometimes it was hard to get them because there are so many tables and they don't turnover regularly, so the servers don't know who just came in. No reservations at the restaurants was fine. The 3 in the back of the resort never had a line (it was a hike to get to). Overall, my only complaint is the food (and that is enough for me not to go back). and the one day the maid forgot to leave us towels.

I would not recommend this resort going through a service like Cheap Carribean. The travel agency was wonderful however we were treated sub par because we did not book with a premier agency. We did not have water given to us the second day and I had to practically have a meltdown to get any at 6:00pm. They even have signs in the rooms saying don't drink the tap water. Staff was not very friendly and appeared bothered when we asked questions. We were told by several people they don't respect Americans much unless they spend a ton of money. We will return to Mexico next time for sure!!

The resort is nice and enjoyable. Food options are kind of limited and the food is not the highest quality but it gets you by because there are several options to choose from. We came as a big party so it was hard for us to try the different restaurants because they do not take reservations and it would be hard to serve a big group. The front desk service is horrible. Three-four times our party members got locked out of their rooms and the front desk instructed us to ask housekeeping to unlock the door but the housekeeping members did not speak English and told us to go to the front desk.. One of the perks is there are water activities right on the beach. There are other activities to enjoy. Overall, we had a great time.

Take a dip into all five pools throughout your stay. One is only for sun-loving adults.

Relaxing by the beach where fruity cocktails are delivered to you. All. Day. Long.

Indulging in all kinds of delicious, stress-melting treatments at Zentropia Spa.

A mega amount of activities for everyone, including a Kid's Club and a club for the teens.

Wining big at the casino - you might as well give it a spin.

 

What We'd Change

It takes a while to get around the resort due to its size, but who could shy away from all these incredible amenities?
 

Why You Should Go

You'll be sitting under a swaying palm in no time - the resort is about 30 minutes away.

You can snorkel in the coral reef right off the shores at the resort. Dive in.

Live music every night, plus a disco for the adults & a mini-disco for the kids. Bring your platforms.

There's a shopping arcade onsite with supermarket & souvenir shop. Load up for the buds.

You've got privileges at the two other resorts in the Palladium Punta Cana complex. Three resorts for one.
