Great place with a fantastic view right in the middle of Cap Cana. It’s better if you have a car so that you can take advantage of everything Cap Cana has to offer, the service was great and the place is beautiful.

This is a golf resort and I would say not worth visiting unless you play golf. It was like a ghost town with no other guests visible and I thought I may have been the only guest staying. No doubt great if I was with a golfing group... At reception I was given an envelope of poorly photocopied documentation that was entirely in Spanish. Lucky I speak Spanish. No phone in room so had to call reception on my mobile. No answer. No cash machine so no way to access cash but taxis come within a few minutes of being called. The room was not very clean and was rather tired. One cupboard door was broken and didn’t close. There was however a little kitchen with plates and cutlery etc but no tea or coffee things which for me are important. The main light in the bathroom was falling out of the ceiling and didn’t work but there was hot water. The aircon was surprisingly effective! In short, I would really not recommend this place. My view was not great compared to other hotels here and clearly the place needs a facelift but won’t get it with so little business and no guests.

Dear David M, First of all I want to thank you for both staying with us and sharing your candid feedback. Golden Bear Lodge is one of our most popular properties and has a lot of demand not only because of the great golf course of Jack Nicklaus design but because it is 5 minutes away from several of the great beaches and restaurants of the Dominican Republic which are located in the Cap Cana and Punta Cana area. In addition it’s a known destination for it many activities involving not just concerts and water sports events but we are close to one of the best equine centers of the entire Caribbean. Hope that you enjoyed our great pool area and its restaurant “Aqua Mare”. On another note please rest sure that we will address immediately the areas of opportunity you mentioned in order to continue improving our services and facilities. The comments were shared with our general manager of the property and service staff. Best regards Jose Castillo Director of Marketing Coal Hospitality Corp.

I recently stayed at Xeliter Golden Bear Lodge 1 week ago in Cap Cana & loved it. If you are looking to relax and totally decompress this is the place for you. Talk about quiet - you could hear a pin drop. Sliding patio doors wide open and all you hear are the birds & see the golf course and ocean. Very close to Punta Cana and easy to find. I really enjoyed the pool which was also very very quiet. If you are looking to relax this is the place to go. I was on the 3rd floor, the bedrooms were cool for sleeping and the accommodation was more than comfortable. I highly recommend it!

I actually cannot believe the restaurant and bar are closed. But are advertised on their website and I was given a brochure about it upon arrival. This has been the case for some time. There is no phone in my deluxe room so you have to use your cellphone. ... by the way this is a Saturday night and there are people staying here. I hope this will help you avoid a horrible experience.

Dear vent_vert2001, Hope this note finds you well, even thought has been a while since you visit our property just wanted to take the time to let you know that at the moment we do have food and beverage service on this property featuring our restaurant outlet Aquamare with options of breakfast, lunch and dinner. In addition, as you may be aware we are 5 minutes away from the Punta Cana Village where you can find many restaurant options and outlets. Hope this information helps for future stays. Best regards Jose Castillo Director of Marketing Coral Hospitality Corp.

I'll start with the good thing I appreciated the most about this hotel: for the price we payed, the apartment I stayed in (two bedrooms with a living room and a kitchen) is huge. Things I didn't like: - When you arrive, the young man at the check in is very kind and welcoming, but once you are in your room, if you have any issues you won't receive any help and your issue won't be fixed. We had to call twice because there was no hot water (For me, hot water is very important), after they finally sent a guy to fix it... Whatever he did, didn't work so we ended up just accepting the fact. - The rooms are dusty and we found many insects (cockroaches and spiders)
