Family Vacation 2019 - to be repeated

From the moment we arrived and checked in the attention and hospitality given to us was top notch! When we arrived to our rooms (we had three rooms) there was water leaking onto the floor from the air conditioner. The bellhop called the front desk, we were told to go back to the front desk and we were upgraded to a suite. They couldn't apologize enough. They asked us to check if the suite was satisfactory and if not they would rectify the situation. The suite was unbelievable. Gorgeous! There was a slight smell of mildew but it was due to the air conditioner having just been turned on. After a few hours it dissipated. The food was great! The staff was amazing. They were all so attentive and accommodating. Jose Luis, the ladies at the front desk, Wilson, Daniela, Bermudez, Gregory, Alex, and so many many more I wish I could remember all your names, thank you all so much for a wonderful time and making this family vacation memorable. It was also our kids first time ever out of the country and they are smitten. Our parents and rest of the family say they will not miss our next family vacation here. Thank you so very much. Definitely coming back! Excelente!

Great experience

Usually I'm not a review writer but thought I'd write this one. I went solo and I must say I did not regret it. There was a bumpy start to the trip. First night my room was freezing even with the ac off and for a 24 hr room service I was surprised they couldn't provide an extra blanket until the next morning. Needless to say I slept in a jacket and woke up with a cold. With that being said, the issue was addressed first thing in the morning and the staff was very apologetic. After that it was smooth sailing. What I like the most was the personal attention to details. The staff gets to know you and provide services tailored to your particular needs. I was not in need of anything. The wait staff was amazing, I'm not a big drinker so I cant comment on the drinks but I did have their Champaign which was pretty good. The beach by far is one the best I've been to for a resort. It's not rocky which was a plus, you can walk for miles and the upkeep by staff was good. Nightly entertainment wasnt bad either. The food was ok, I wasn't blown away by the breakfast and dinner selections. I was a bit disappointed that the food was more international than local. However pancho lunches were pretty good and in the perfect location to view the beach while you eat. The mini bar in the room was ok. They restocked it daily with soda, water and beer. Overall for someone who travelled solo I never once felt like I was alone because of the staff. Take a chance and you'll create and unforgettable memory! (I have to give credit to the housekeeper Maria who kept everything to my liking. When I say attention to details she's a perfect example. She noticed I slept with a towel on my pillow from me leaving it there in the morning. Every night when I returned she left a clean towel on top of my pillow and my sheets were turned down nightly. This was all done without me even asking!)

What's to Love

No reservations needed for any of the restaurants.

The 16-mile stretch of the legendary Arena Gorda Beach that will be your backyard of bliss.

It's an adults-only paradise = no cannonballs or high-pitched squealing at the pool.

The delicious treatments at the spa like anxiety-erasing massages, facials, and body wraps.

Stealing away at the Beach Eden, Soana Island. It's like being marooned, but in a good way.

Free WiFi throughout the rockin' resort. Update your status 'til the sea cows come home.

The handy, dandy liquor dispensers in your room. You can have that hour of happy any time you want.

 

What We'd Change

Drinks at Pacha nightclub are not included in the all inclusive package. But with four other bars offering free beverages, as well as Copacabana Amphitheater, you'll be just fine.

 

Why You Should Go

It's only 19 miles from the airport - that beach vacay you've been craving will be unfolding ASAP.

Three world-class golf courses are nearby. Grab those clubs. Play like you mean it.

Try your hand at water polo or Volleyball. Body boarding or Pedaloes. Get all sporty.

Set your sights on the beautiful sugar fields of Higuey and Altos de Chavon - a picture-worthy day trip.

You can ride horses at the Caribbean Cachondeo, or hang with the stingrays at the Marinarium Marine Park.

Check out Caribbean Street - shop 'til you drop. Then start all over again.
