We travelled back in June 2011. Weather was a bit wet the first week but soon hotted up. Lovely and humid if you like that sort of heat!
Hotel is fantastic, yes the rooms are basic but you don't spend much time in them anyway. The main thing was they were clean.
Lots of variety of food which sometimes got repetitiveness at the buffet, but most do but it was fresh and hot most of the time. Good food down at the beach restaurant when you fancied a snack!
Beach is grainy but nice and clean with a nice warm sea. This isn't the Carribean side so it isn't quite as green looking as some may think, but its still very nice.
Not much outside the resort, trip to Puerto Plata was eye-opening but nothing special. The staff were generally very friendly, particularly one of the waiting staff who we couldn't fault with his work ethic.
Some improvements would be more glasses at night and another waiter or too for drinks. Entertainment area is too small as well. Great to meet people because of the size of the hotel and everyone is generally friendly.
Would return in a few years at the right price for a cheap break.
