Disappointing

We stayed at this resort so we could be close to family in San Pedro de Macoris for the Christmas holiday. We stayed Dec 20-26. Unfortunately, almost every single thing was a disappointment. Thankfully, we just went with the flow and just tried to remember the importance of the occasion for our trip to make it more bearable. Below is a summary of how everything went. Restaurants: This resort had many more Dominican food options than others we have stayed at but unfortunately it wasn’t very good. While the resort is all-inclusive, you have to make reservations for all restaurants otherwise you will get stuck with the buffet. We stayed for 6 days and were only able to dine at 1 restaurant, Oregano, which is the Dominican fusion one. While the desserts were delicious the meals were very bland. Dominican food is so so good and it was very disappointing to eat something so bland. This will leave a poor impression on those who are new to the cuisine. Unfortunately, the service at the buffets was terrible. We didn’t always know which one was even open. We asked for water and silverware 3 times and still never got the water. On several occasions we ate there and never were served drinks. The food was hit or miss. Usually we tip at resorts but there was nothing here that made me want to leave a tip. Room: This was the worst part of the whole trip. We don’t need anything fancy but this place couldn’t even provide the most basic things. We had to ask for towels several times to finally get some. It made me wonder what housekeeping even did when they came in there. We also had to ask for water and beers to be replenished. At a minimum one would expect these to be a part of the housekeeping service. The only thing that worked in our room were the TV & fridge. Iron, blow dryer, phone, lamp and fan light were not working. These are just basic hotel items so I cannot comprehend why they didn’t work. The room itself could use some paint to clean it up too. Other: There were never enough beach/pool towels, not even first thing in the morning. The resort just made me feel like they just opened and were not ready to manage the most basic needs of guests. There were also people on the resort with tables set up to sell you things on a few of the nights. I really did not see the need for this and found them to be too persistent even after you said you were not interested. The activities for the day were not very clear otherwise I would’ve gone to a few at least. The beach was nice but there are a lot of people out selling goods so that can get annoying. Not much shade is available so wear your sunblock for sure! The shows at night were pretty good overall and the entertainment group was very enthusiastic. Overall I would not stay here again. I was very disappointed by the experience and was glad we managed to get away for 2 of the days so we didn’t have to deal with the nonsense.

Worst trip ever

If I could give this place 0 stars I would. The customer service is a joke especially if you only speak English. I arrived to this hotel on November 9,2018 on Friday at 3pm. Our check in was at 3pm. My friend and I waited 2 hours to be placed into a room at 5pm after I started becoming irrate and yelling at the man who was supposed to give us a room. We then went up to our room and there was ice falling from the ceiling, the refridgerator doesn’t work the power goes on and off, the WiFi doesn’t work st all. We then complained to the “guest service” which did absolutely NOTHING AT ALL. They told us that they would accommodate us by moving our room if we spoke to them the next day on that Sunday so we did and then they told us that they didn’t have a room for us. They told us to come back and they will give us a gift and help us tomorrow. We then went to guest services at 9am and they told us the manager wasn’t in they couldn’t do anything for us, the next time the manager will be here is at 9am Tuesday. We then went back on that Tuesday to speak to the manager again, at this time the manager wasn’t in ONCE AGAIN they began to tell us there is nothing they can do without a manager. We went at 9am they told us they were going to speak to the manager reguarding the situation because they were never aware of anything at this time we are going home on Wednesday they have NOT DONE A THING. Maybe it’s becausw we speak English and not Spanish? The one girl who worked at the customer service desk was laughing they think it’s funny. I am 25 years old as is my friend and I would never come back to this resort there is absolutely nothing to do. The people are nothing but rude because we don’t know Spanish and they promise the world and don’t follow up. DO NOT COME HERE.

What's to Love

Emotions Beach Resort offers a variety of delicious restaurants and bars, plus three pools and plenty of activities to do! The kids love the climbing wall!
 

What We'd Change

Premium wine and beer options are available for an additional cost at the Oaks Bar and Milwaukee Bar, but you get so much with the all-inclusive perks that it's okay to splurge on a premium beer.

Although the property isn't directly on the beach, it's still just right across the street!

 

Why You Should Go

Not only do you have all the resort activities, but being a hop, skip and a jump away from Juan Dolio Beach is like having your own private oasis with a small beach town feel.
