7 hotels in 1 so something for everyone - although if you are in any other part than turqesa, ambar green or blue you cannot access these areas. We stayed in BAVARO. Hotel room was spacious, cleaned well everyday and fairly well maintained - some grout and silicone was dirty, shower head not the best - but these are minor!!...

Nice location, rooms were dark, no full length mirror, and unless they saw you were tipping them the staff was pretty unfriendly. Pool should stay open later as it is very hot there, and so should the bars. They also fail to tell you things like for example went to get a massage but we were not informed that the...

We have just returned from this hotel and overall we have had a good holiday which we booked through Thomas cook. We went on two excursions which we booked through Bahia tours in the reception area as they were a lot cheaper than Thomas cook. The mud buggy trip was fun and Saona island was stunning but be mindful that...
