I went to Dominican with friends. This hotel was older and there were some things that needed to be fixed and updated. Overall we had an enjoyable week and we didn't worry about it. We mainly used the pools as the water was pretty rough. We did take a walk to Sosua beach which was quite nice.

The food was decent and quite palatable...we especially enjoyed the omelette station in the mornings and the pasta bar at night. We didn't starve and...

My friends who we usually travel with were a little leery of the place when we arrived at the so called lobby..this place is missing the mark by having guests arrive and seeing this run down tiny lobby as a first impression. We were here for two...

We were looking for a cheap and cheerful getaway and this was perfect. Average accommodations, food, and service but the location, beach and scenery were fabulous. Locals were at the resort over the weekend and got a little out of hand one night but that can happen anywhere. We ventured into town and ate at some local restaurants which were...
