Not so hot

Nice pool and nice beach. Everything is not a Dream... Food and beverages were sub-par, sometimes even bordered on inedible. The taco lunch by the beach was absolutely nasty; dirty plates that people in line were shuffling through in the hopes of finding a clean one, with nasty meat that we had to spit out, crunchy rice and toppings that were left baking in the sun. Just one example of many times the food was well below average. There is no top shelf liquor to be had unless you upgrade to the preferred club, and it’s not worth it... And be prepared to be up-sold and harassed into buying more and more of everything. From room upgrades, liquor upgrades, excursion trips, photography packages, spa treatments, t-shirts, cigars, wine, paintings, knick-knacks, literally everyone around the resort is straight hustling for more money from you... At times you just feel like you want to be left alone, but unfortunately that only happens when you are poolside or beachside and are look for the waitstaff to bring you a drink... And that’s only going to be watered down booze in 4 ounce plastic cups. The resort is in need of some major renovations all around. The place feels rundown in most areas. This place was a let down. And the $400 is resort coupons was a complete scam. They only let you use them for certain things at certain times. I only got to use a couple of them.

Good Stay

1- rooms are very outdated 2- beach is beautiful 3- entertainment is THE BEST thing about this resort 4- its a family resort so lots of kids around. 5- service (waiters, bartenders etc) are great and funny 6- all restaurants have a very limited menu, not much to choose. Bordoeux restaurant was probably the nicest but still not much to choose from. 7- buffet is so boring same thing everyday Overall What we paid for was a good experience. I dont think we will be back.

Beautiful beach, pool, spa and lots of options

The great news: the resort plants and such are gorgeous! Grounds are stunning and they are constantly trimming, fixing, sweeping, etc. Flamingo pool is a nice touch! Pool is amazing - winds through the entire center of the resort; tons of space to find your 'spot' and hang out place for your vacation. Easy to find like-minded travelers (e.g., those with kids, those without, etc.) and be near them. If you have a poolside patio room (one of our group did), it's a walk out and extra lounge chairs for you. Lots of options on restaurants - Oceana and Portafino were our favorites and the pizza bar at the beach! Our #1 favorite - the swim-up pool bar! Staff was amazing there and tons of fun; we made lots of friends with staff and other travelers; total great time! Special thanks to Ruben, Carlos and Maryani! Staff (overall) is kind, helpful, fun, and willing to help you learn some Spanish! Tons of activities - always something going on for all ages! Beach is big and beautiful - and, again, they are always cleaning up the seaweed (very little of it as they keep gathering it). Lots of seating and space. The spa and staff is amazing! a must do! And they will give discounts (if you ask!!). The so-so news: we had 3 ROH rooms and 2 upgraded (to pool view) rooms and they are nice but in need of repair; patched spots, some small holes, drooping ceiling, some mold, etc. Not horrible but noticeable. Had to constantly ask to get what was supposed to be in the room (e.g., robes, hair dryer, beer in frig) - you eventually get it; best to ask the cleaning staff as they were quick (front desk was not). The resort is huge - be sure to get a building that is near where you want to be. It's a hike if you have kids and are near the beach and have to get to the show area. Buildings 6-9 have a nice walkway; buildings 1-5, you walk through the buildings (not a big deal but other side is prettier walk). Require pool or front view - don't get back side of buildings 1-5 as they are building another resort and construction is loud and not pretty. The not-good news: check in and check out was a nightmare. Took over an hour both checking in and out. With check in: 3 of the 5 rooms we got were not the best - backside, noisy, dirty. Changing them took another hour. There were plenty of rooms open (we checked) but they kept trying to put us in poor locations. We eventually got to a good building (#2) but two of the rooms were still not the best but we got tired of arguing about it. Check out was not smooth - the first person who checked us out earlier, evidently did not complete the transaction correctly and there was confusion when we had to leave. All in all - would I go back? If I was set on Punta Cana - yes and I would book an upgraded room to avoid the check in and rooms issues. Otherwise, no. I've been to many Caribbean Islands and resorts and this resort because of the rooms and check in/check out is off of my list.

New Years

We were here for New Years and let me say they threw a great New Year celebration on the beach. Not to sure on where all that energy went after the 31st because the resort became boring at night with nothing to do. They did have daily shows for guest and afterwards you were able to go to the resorts little nightclub from 11pm-2am. I tell you not the club is in a closet people, walked in and walked right out laughing thats how much of a joke it was. So if you plan on coming to have a good time I wouldnt really recommend. Rooms are outdated, and beds are very small they barely can fit 2 people on them. But otherwise the resort is really beautiful, the food is great, and the service was great as well.

What's to Love

The refreshing champagne and chilly towels that welcome you into beach bliss.

As of June 2018 you can bring your furry friend along!

The massive, aahh-mazing pool that stretches from the lobby to the beach.

The 1,643-square foot on-site casino. Lady luck is waiting.

The Deluxe Swim-Out room. You'll feel like royalty, or a rock star. (Or a royal rock star.)

The flamingos, peacocks, parrots, turtles and more - it's like a tropical zoo.

Explorer's club (kids 3-12) with everything from sand castle contests to Plant a Tree & Corn Harvest Project.

Red Cross certified staff supervise the aforementioned club. A relief, right?

Parents get a pager from the Explorer's club, should they be needed for anything.

Chilling in the spa's Zen garden after the Tropical Oasis Body Wrap.

The FREE windsurfing and sailing lessons. (Gotta love free.)

Seaside dining with only the stars and candles to light your night. (There's a fee, but go for it).

 

What We'd Change

You'll want to keep an eye on the schedule for the restaurants, but there are so many options your taste buds will rejoice in their around-the-world tour.

 

Why You Should Go

It's 40-minute drive from the airport, but you can relax - you're already in earth-heaven.

Upgrade to the Preferred Club, get a private lounge & beach, and much more.

Browse the Dominican market with fine handicrafts, hand-made jewelry and more.

For some "you time," there's yoga/stretching and aerobics.

Our world-class golf courses are near. The concierge can hook you up.

Saddle up and go horseback riding. It costs, but it's magical.

Get starry-eyed with the Stargazing Rock 'n Roll party and movies under the stars on the beach.

Tennis (and clinics) are here - nothing like hitting the court under the palms.

Head to the baseball cage for some family throwing and bonding time.

Play Mexican Bingo and after you win, hit the water cycles.

The ocean trampoline is a fav among the kiddos.
