Fun in the Sun

I would say, overall, our trip was very nice. The food was good and drinks plentiful (breakfast was particularly good!!) the staff was helpful and tried to make sure you had a good time, and the hotel rooms were nice for the most part. Some of the rooms need to have simple maintenance done, for example our shower head was broken and that is an easy fix between guests. The first day we were there, we had a very short orientation.We were told to go to the lobby restaurant for lunch while our room was prepared. It was about 4:00pm so I thought our room should have been ready by then, but I don't work in the industry so I may be wrong. When we walked to the restaurant, the hostess told us the restaurant would be closing in 3 minutes... I thought it was weird for them to make us go to lunch and then tell us we only had 3 minutes. In the end we were served and the food was good. It was more weird than anything and I was tired. We also got several calls to the room, which was frustrating after being on a plane all day. We just wanted to rest. I cheered up a bit in the end when they brought champagne for our honeymoon the last time they came to the room that day. There was a lot of seaweed on the beach that was not pleasant to smell or swim in, but the pools were amazing and there were not too many people at them. There was a fun swim up bar in the pool and several small snack bars and restaurants close by. There seemed to be a lot of rules to follow, such as men not being allowed to wear shorts or tank tops to dinner. Other than those few snags, the pool was right outside our building and it was clean and beautiful. ***Two staffers in particular, Lionel and Omar went above and beyond to make sure our visit was fun and relaxing. Because we met some very nice people and staff, I would rate this stay a 3 out of 5.

Romantic vacation

My boyfriend I just came from there September 12 to the 18th 2018 !! The place is so beautiful and very big ! And very romantic we went to the adult side most of the time took lots of pictures and the food and drinks are great ! A lot of bars and restaurants .My favorite restaurant are the Rodeo steak house and Mikado Japanese restaurant !! I love the entertainment they had at 9:30pm I wish we went every night but we only went the last two nights it’s very funny and fun to watch .The only thing that I didn’t like was when you’re by the beach the water smells and a lot of seaweed and we asked for our mini fridge to be fixed and and they never fixed it and to check our A/C because the room wasn’t cold enough And when you shop around the stores have to use your credit card not cash .I would very recommend this to all couples it was very cheap and worth every penny all inclusive I thought I would spend more money but I didn’t . And make sure you know Spanish because my boyfriend and I did not know much Lol.

No service when needed

This was my first time using cheap caribbean and was not impressed. We changed the reservation and ended up changing passengers. I spoke with customer service several times to confirm the reservation. When we arrived to check in at the hotel they said i only paid for one person. So they had to call cheap catibbean to confirm even though i showed my resevation print out showing two ppl. Also a light was out in the room. No one ever came to fix it. Room service never came when ordered. If you call the front desk youll never get towels or anything you ask for. Room service did not clean our room daily. We had to go to th front desk and wait for towels every day. Our fridge had opened drinks from the previous guests. Very disappointed. I do like that tou can use the family resort amenities while staying. Their beach is better. The beach bar stays open the latest. And piano bar. The pools close at like 7 which is ridiculous for an adult only resort.

Horrible beach

Great restort amazing service. Room ac would not get very cold. I placed that thermostat as low as it can go. Never got cold in the room. The pools were amazing. My only disappointment was the seaweed filled beach. It was stinky and brown. The water does not look like the photos!! I was told this just started happening but I asked the clean up crew on the beach they said it’s been going on for 2 years now. Don’t be deceived by the clear water pictures. The beach sucks!

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.
