The best food experience during our holidays! The steaks were on point, just like we asked for. Very juicy, well seasoned and tasty. The strawberry cheesecake and the apple pie were so delicious too. Compliments to the chef and thanks to Henry Lopez!

This an average resort, it has a beautiful beach, lovely rooms and average food. The a la carte restaurants were exceptional. It’s been 5 years since I’ve been at an All Inclusive in the DR. So I don’t know if this is standard now for all resorts, but I found the buffet did not change from day to day. I remember they use to do theme nights and each night there was something different to choose from. That being said you will always find something to eat, I just struggled with the lack of variety at all meals. It’s a very noisy resort in the evening, most nights they had something going on at the theatre, the main lobby and the area between the two. All very loud and depending on where you sat you didn’t know what you were listening to. The acoustics were horrible that most times it just sounded like boom boom boom. We were a group of 5 couple and we couldn’t find anywhere in the evening to sit and have a drink, chat or play a game of cards. We were in building 25 closes to the beach and furthest from the main lobby so once we were in our room/building we didn’t hear any of the music/noise. The buildings have lovely open areas where they could easily set up tables and chairs for guest that just want to sit quietly and relax, chat or have a game of cards.

Great stay, pools were great just needed to be cleaned more, beach was wonderful and super close. Probably the best beach on the resort strip. Resort could use more shaded areas by the pool. Would stay again.

See my comments in the survey. We won’t be coming back to this resort. Things need to be kept up better and there should be live shows nor recorded ones. I can stay home and watch things on TV. Speaker system is way to loud, Once in our room with the balcony door closed, it felt and sounded like the speakers were on our balcony. Way too loud. I’m surprised if nobody has complained about this before.
