Good option for the price

The hotel grounds and beach were clean. There were plenty of beach chairs at the pool and on the beach. I feel like the pool water could've been cleaner. There were often floaties and I don't think I ever saw it vacuumed. I was comfortable here and didn't need to be glamorous but could dress up if I wanted to and not feel out of place. There were many options for dining and didn't need reservations. The food was what you would expect for all inclusive...edible and not awesome. Make sure your flight flies into Sosua and Not Santiago. It's a long ride to Santiago. I didn't get the warm fuzzies about the staff, but in general they were friendly. They tried to sell us membership to their resorts for VIP's and weren't pushy but tried every day we were there. My only complaint is all of the bars were typically staffed with only one bartender where there should have been more. Make sure you bring your own Yeti or insulated cup because the bars ones are very small and with the service of one bartender, you would've been standing there the better part of the day. Don't plan on driving here. The traffic is crazy and the drivers were aggressive with passing and cutting people off.

Do Not Stay Here

Staff at the hotel are very friendly because they are constantly trying to sell you things. Upgraded dinners and amenities or a timeshare. They literally wait for you outside a restaurant to hound you. We learned to lie to them ‘we are leaving tomorrow’ for them to leave us alone. The only escape from this was to go to the beach, which was crawling with vendors. 20-30 at any given time selling garbage. They would bump into chairs or jingle shells in people’s faces to wake them/ get their attention. While the beach and seascape are absolutely beautiful the hotel is lack luster. Food is mediocre and the alcohol is noname. The staff at the hotel describe this property as a 3 star resort and their least desirable location. The Dominican Republic is absolutely beautiful but I highly suggest staying elsewhere.

Most Questionable Purchase Ever!!

To whom it may concern: This trip was less than perfect and there’s a few cery important things I’d like to bring to your attention. First the website told us that Santiago STI airport was 20 minutes from out resort, try 2 hours and 20mins we soent more time in a car than on the plane there. Due to this we didn’t receive the “welcome drinks” and or any tour info we were checked in as if our money was no good everyone rushed us along treating us like children which caused us to miss booking our return shuttle back to the airport. Yes we were 2hours and 20 mins from out flight home with a cancelled shuttle in a foreign country and spent $120 resort rate for resort taxi. This was unacceptable aswell as our room being damaged upon arrival. As well as the fact no one was clear that the $200 in credit towards the soabwas broken down so nothing was actually credited. Yet none of this bothered me as much as the absolute AUDACITY! of the workers at this resort. The fact that my girlfriend was told by a bartender to come back to the resort without me, and the men stop and stare and all the woman as if they are on the set of a playboy shoot, I am extremely upset and offended that mye and my loved ones were treated like this it is disgusting and I can assure you that our business is gone. Due to the lack of respect and courtesy throughout our stay.

What's to Love

Feeling like royalty during the red carpet check-in while you nosh on frosty welcome treats.

Stress-busting spa with a delicious menu of pampering, you-spoiling treatments.

The golden sands of Playa Dorado that are calling your name.

The indoor theatre that offers up some booty-shaking nighttime entertainment. Woot!

Tons of activities for the kiddos, which means more chillaxin' time for you.

The Teleferico Cable Car - the only funicular in the Caribbean.


What We'd Change

A la carte dining can fill up at night, so you might have to wait a bit. Good thing you can grab a cocktail or two while you wait to be served.


Why You Should Go

27 Damajagua Cascades are near - 27 natural river pools and waterfalls - and there's may be an extra cost, but it's so worth it.

The Sun Club, a family-centric program that features upgraded everything.

A golf course designed by the famous Robert Trent Jones surrounds the resort. Easy to get to when it's your tee time.

The famous Malecon beach strip is full of restaurants/bars, local vendors and Fort San Felipe to visit.

You can hike and bike through lush, tropical terrain - you might even see an exotic bird or two.
