Beautiful resort. Very friendly staff. Although this time around i cannot give a 10. Still worth a visit. Overall great place. It's better to under promise and over deliver than promise and not deliver!

Before I start, I want to say I am not one of those snooty people who requires a flawless vacation to enjoy it. I am very down to earth. I also know mistakes happen, and am quick to forgive so long as someone takes ownership and tries to compensate for their mistakes. DO NOT BOOK THROUGH TRANSAT. EVER. I would...

We had a great time at this facility. However if you were vegan this would be difficult. Please stock some veggie burgers, and have some oatmeal made with water available. The vegetables were abundant but most had cheese added..this could have been put on the side for those who wished cheese. Nuts and dried fruit would also be appreciated, as...

It has been unforgettable vacation. Animation Staff was outstanding, La Diva, Granpa, Roger, Heriberto among others made us feel so good. At the Main buffet Anarely Bonilla deserves 5 stars for her dedication at work, and the last but not least is the main reference of the Occidental Punta Cana, Mr. Santo. Santo is the bartender in "La Bodeguita". The...

Rooms were nice and the pools were cool. The food was absolutely disgusting! out of the 7 restaurants only the Mexican was just about good enough to eat. The seafood restaurant was by far the worst. I ordered Tuna thinking it would be fresh tuna but nope it was canned and we were 2 meters from the beach! the service...

When we got there our room was not ready. We had to wait for nearly 1.5 hours to get our room. We were asked to go to the restaurant to eat. We were not allowed in because the restaurant closed at 3.30 and we got there at 3.32. The restaurant was still fairly full. At the mexican restaurant, we had...

Excellect vacation. The hotel grounds and beach were beautiful and very clean. Staff friendly but communicating in English was a problem. Food was very good and the weather perfect. .Rooms very clean. More shaded area needed at beach and pool area.

One of my best vacation ever! I had the honour to meet amazing people here. The service is outstanding and the animation team keeps you active during all the different dance lessons, aqua aerobics, funniest crazy games.

Staff need to speak or at least understand the English language. Very frustrating ordering drinks or even asking for towels or water for the room. Staff need to be friendlier. The positive was the grounds, pool and beach area were very clean.

“We were in Room 20303. There are a few refurb clean-up issues with the room: - connect non-functional light switches to the lights....or removed the switches. - finish the inside of the front hall closet. Ditto for the living room closet. - the front door to the suite has a dead bolt on the door but no hole in the door”
