Overall fantastic staff, coordinators, and activities directors(such as Lilo, the Tennis Pro). Rooms were elegant, food excellent, and it was well worth my stay. Quite a first impression made by Puerto Plata.

Good to know that is cost $10 PP to enter airport upon arrival. Bring cash. Pros: Puerto Plata beach is beautiful. Easy Shuttle Access, went thru Go Shuttle who booked me with Cocotours ($12 cheaper than booking thru resort). Easy check-in. Great food (wasn't pleased with breakfast), make dinner reservations early! FRIENDLY STAFF! Resort programming was cool, always something to...

This resort has everything planned for a relaxing vacation. The beaches with the pristine cabana beds, the many eating areas with exceptionally good food, the many bars. Yes, the rooms could be upgraded but the mattresses were very comfortable. Best of all, the employees were most friendly and accommodating.

Very lovely vacation. Enjoyed all the amenities and different beaches i.e. Serenity Beach, Harmony Beach. Enjoyed the walks on the beach without being pestered by people trying to sell. The restaurants are wonderful. We truly enjoyed The Blue Lagoon. We were a bit surprised by the attention to outside detail and the lack of it in the rooms. We were...

Everything you will encounter here is artificial luxury. The food is advertised as 5 star, however I have never been to a 5 star restaurant that served me canned clam chowder described as homemade.
