Let me start off by saying that Punta Cana is beautiful. Nothing beats arriving at a thatched roof airport, that really puts you in the vacation spirit... I wanted so badly to fall in love with this resort, really I did. Upon arrival the driver attempted to drop us off at the family side of the resort, which has a...

My husband and I stayed at this resort May 11-18, 2012. This was our first trip to the Dominican Republic and we have some mixed feelings.

After reading lots of positive and negative reviews, my partner and I arrived at the resort with an open mind to judge on our own opinion. I would say the food is average, there's very few choices in each restaurant so if your a fussy eater you will struggle. There's another serious issue with the dress code/air con! The men...

This was our first trip to the Dominican Republic. The beach was what I had always dreamed of.....wide with soft sand and lots and lots of palm trees. The ocean water was clear and calm, one of the main reasons we chose this resort. We take floaties so we can float around in the ocean. There was a man-made reef...
