My husband and I spent 7 days and just returned on Jan 24, 2010. Here is my review: Beautiful beach, there are multiple crews of staff that clean the beach on a daily basis, the water was warm, shallow, and clear.

I know this may take awhile to read, however to get an idea of the grand scale of epic failure this "resort" is, do yourself a massive favor and read. Trust me i did not embellish this one bit.

Booked with Nolitours, Ottawa to Punta Cana direct. Left first thing in the morning, arrived at the hotel a little before lunch.
