    I had similar problem in Mexico and USA - they work but don't get as hot as they should. Hoping will be better here - will maybe buy a pair out there and keep them for holidays!

    Other than the buffet at breakfast the rest of the dining is more a la carte. We certainly didn't have any traditional dominican dishes while we were there but the food was excellent in all the restaurants.
