First of all, I requested a taxi or shuttle from the airport on the hotel's website (no taxi or shuttle was there when we arrived). Needlessly to say, we got a taxi for about $40 from the airport to hotel. Our first impression of the hotel was that it was in a poor neighborhood and it would be best to travel together. The hotel staff are very friendly and accommodating. We traveled to the Texaco gas station, local eatery and went across the street to see a fantastic view of the Caribbean Ocean. We visited local sites, and our tour guide was the best and the hotel was close to the city. Overall, we would stay here again for the local favor.

Room Tip: A/C unit = one was in the bedroom - rest of room cool by breeze

First of all, the pictures are deceiving. They need to update there stuff. I was here for 6 days, actually still here and leave on Tuesday. I have never been so disappointed in my life. They should tear it down and rebuild. It is stuck in the 40's. We have had no hot water, not even warm, when asking for things, they never have it. Three days in a row no pool towels. I would say 4 staff members out of everyone else was helpful and nice. Food and beverages over priced for being a shack hotel. Would never bring a family or kids here, they have female escorts/hookers coming in and out of the hotel making out with old age Caucasian men. It was awful, no respect for kids or family. Can't wait to go home.

If you go use the taxi driver Moreno. He was awesome. He speaks little English and points out historical points and points of interest while driving. The hotel Staff was awesome and were there all the time with someone that speaks English. Food was so good. We tried most of the dishes they cooked and the wines. We had a great time. The bed in the bedroom was hard but the cleaning service was there everyday and was awesome.

The people in Dominican Republic are great. I wish I had taken everyone's name at the resort. Everyone was wonderful, from the front desk, to the cleaning crew, to the security crew, to the bar and kitchen crew. I give them 5 Stars and then sum. The service is 2nd to none.

Although the rooms are dated, the staff are very friendly. The Italian restaurant had wonderful food. It was all made with fresh ingredients. I never had a bad meal. I really enjoyed Carlos the bartender/waiter. He made our stay a memorable one.

The one thing we did find was it was in a not so good area. We were told, from the residents who lived in the apartments there, not to go without a taxi from the hotel. Nothing is printed in English so communication was a little difficult for us.

7 Days was a little too long, would maybe go back for 4 days max.
