This was a really old and out dated resort , more for family's than a couple. We were charged an extra $200 dollars for an ocean view ,that was on our package that we purchased. I wouldn't recommend this resort to anyone . Food was good in mermaids , and waterfalls was ok also. Cafe was average. Coffee was terrible...

It is a huge disappointment, everything is so ridiculously over priced, service was nearly non existent and entertainment was non existent, eating and drinking venues were not always open, the toilets and showers were dodgy and the whole place was like a step back in time

We were pleasantly surprised how great our holiday was on DDI after reading some poor reviews. The ocean view room looking over the marina was great. Spacious, clean and serviced daily. There were plenty of activities on offer. My favourite was the 3 1/2 guided hike on South Molle Island. The scenery and views were spectacular. The Buffett breakfast was...

This is one of the most exotic, breathtaking islands you will ever go to. The hotel is in good condition and our room was absolute bliss overlooking a well manicured lawns and turkoise water. It is therefore so sad to see the hotel being mis- managed. However - this is what tripadvisor is all about. Follow these tips below and...

Generally, our stay here was OK. The room was big, spacious and clean although a bit of modernisation would be nice, especially on the patio area outside. WiFi in the room would have been great - in this day and age, this is now more than just a nicety - it's almost a necessity (imo). Also would have been nice...
