Food was good, it always had something you could choose, the variety was quite good for a three stars hotel. As entertainment we could choose...

It was fine for our 1 night but would...

We spent three nights with family and had lots of fun. The hotel is located on the beast beach in Punta Cana. They have 2-3 bars and the best one is at the beach. They also offer snacks so make sure to pay a visit to Alexander! He will make you the best burges and sandwiches...and always with a smile!...

The beach was beautiful, we booked excursions with Gwen on the beach. I'd recommend her to anyone. We being Welsh/British were in a minority there were people from Poland, Canada,...

Stayed at this hotel mid April for a week. Big room, cleaned daily and towels changed each time. Bed was huge and very comfortable and could have easily slept 4 people! Room was facing the road so was noisy so may be worth asking to change if you are at the front of the hotel. Breakfast, lunch + dinner all...
