Great Beach - Okay resort

The beach set-up was really great - we waited until we arrived to upgrade to "Preferred", which was worth the price as you get access to the semi-private beach and the PURE beach bar - which was really fantastic! They do advertise the "Preferred" rooms as fully remodeled, which is a bit of a stretch. While the bathroom was awesome, the ceiling was moldy and there was a hole in the closet that leaked water onto the floor. The front desk was receptive to this, and did send maintenance to take a look and offered to change our room. The pool was also awesome, the only drawback was the service at the swim up bar. The bartenders at that bar were quite unfriendly and it felt like we were bothering them by ordering drinks, even after a generous tip. The food was alright, there are a lot of options which is really nice but it was all just alright. The buffets during the day were nice, but once again, a lot of the time the service was sub-par. Asking someone to fill your water glass was normally met with a scowl, or you just didn't get water at all. There were some VERY lovely members of the staff who were friendly an attentive, but they were the minority. Overall, this was a nice resort with a great beach. Based on the room, service, food, and price paid I must say this was not the best value and I would recommend looking elsewhere.

Anniversary Stay

Overall everything was good, the resort is nice and clean! The only hang up was the food, it was not to my liking. One of the restaurants outside was still serving food after we notified them that the birds was eating on it. Other than that , our room was a little warm but tolerable. OVERALL WE HAD A GOOD TIME

Punta Cana!!!

The hotel premises is beautiful. Well kept, clean, and huge. When we got to the hotel we were given the option to upgrade to Privlidged for $20 a day per person. It came out to $200 for 5 nights, not bad but I noticed on Expedia it’s cheaper to pay for the upgraded room. It was $190 for 7 days. The room was beautiful so we didn’t mind it. The staff is amazing. Very attentive and friendly. They work very hard and we were happy with the experience with them. The beach has way too much seaweed but that isn’t the hotels fault. And I did notice the hotel staff trying to clean it up every day but there is only so much you can clean. The restaurants on site were all good except the Italian restaurant. I had two bites and didn’t want it. I tried my husbands food and it wasn’t good either. They need better recipes there. I know the hotel is for kids and adults but they need more music around the resort. At least between the hours of 10am-10pm. It was quiet but almost too quiet where it could become boring. You have to liven up the place Bc if not everyone will be in bed early on vacation and who wants that. When you ask for change they say they don’t have even though they do. Also I feel like the privilege rooms and regular rooms are almost similar. I would come back but they need to liven it up more.

The resort was a nice size, and spread out so you are not on top of each other. Restaurants were good, staff very friendly. The only down side was the Pearl beach club had a party with very loud DJ ing that went til 4:15 am. everyone that was staying at the resort heard the music all night.

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.

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