    Bavaro beach flea market was ok. The pricing was much higher than the local flea markets and they weren’t willing to negotiate as much.They do have white Hennessy but wanted $120US (only place I’ve seen it since we’ve been here) The beach was nice. We took a tour with a local tour guide on the beach for $100US to swim with sting rays, sharks, observe the dolphins, and swim in the natural pool, they promised a snorkeling spot which we never went to.They did let my husband drive the small speed boat to the dolphin holding place just off the beach. They did have options for party boats, parasailing, and an expensive restaurant (NOVA Beach Club) that wasn’t good in my option.

    The hotel is truly amazing. But the most outstanding part of our experience at the resort was their customer service. All the personal from the receptionist to the housekeepers were always smiling and happy to assist us.

    An special recognition to our butler Mr. Arismendy. He is a real gentleman. Elegant and super warm in his service.

    Sincerely,

    Jorge Ortiz

    Dolphin Island – the interaction with dolphins was fantastic. Our children have spectacular photos. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. It is worthwhile to take Royal option with two dolphins .

    Besides the dolphin experience itself we had very bad impression. We were picked up by a small van which was about to fall apart. The boat which transported us to the dolphin site was dirty and in bad condition. The dolphin site was dirty and primitive. My wife had to pay 50 dollars!!! just to go with us and watch children with dolphins from 50 m away. This was outrageous. When we tried to talk to them said, that she could not stay at the beach! She either had to pay 50 dollars and would have to go back to hotel.

    This is about the fifth time I visit Juanillo Beach and the Beach Club. I have to say that I had been sorely disappointed about 4 months ago due to the poor quality of the food. Food was taking very long to be served and they were not using food covers, so the food would get to the guests cold. I am glad to say they have made a big improvement in that respect.

    They have also increased the amount of servers available, so it makes it easier to order food and drinks instead of having to chase after them. They still have to work a little on customer service skills of some service staff. I particularly have to say I had a very nice encounter with a server names Castro. He went above and beyond my expectations and delivered stellar service. It was a very refreshing experience that stood out among the lackluster service of others.

    They have also kept on improving the lounges and beach beds, which makes for a very pleasant time just as it was many years ago.

    This is a must see place if you rent a car or would like to see amazing lagoons. Tickets to get on to the property is $50US/pp. This includes access to the lagoons and Blanca beach. There are several Lagoons that are crystal clear and you have the ability to swim in. We seen turtles,hermit crabs, and different types of lizards along our hike around the area. We enjoyed the coral lined pathways, no getting lost. The walk doesn’t take long to get around the whole circle and is an easy walk. About 2-3 hour event (taking short breaks to swim).

    The waves are strong but once you pass the place where they break out you can just lie on top of the waves and let yourself go for hours.

    Excellent place, beautiful beach with a nice restaurant where you can rent a tent as well. Only Spanish speeking personnel. The road to the beach is a challenge. It's reached best with an off road vehicle. However we've made it with a small rental car

    We visited manatí park yesterday. Our tour guide was a very pleasant young lady named Shakira. She was very sweet and patient with my daughter who, by the way, fell in love with her.

    While the experience was pricey it was very cool. Loved being able to see the dolphins first hand. While the pictures were expensive they are worth getting given this is a once in a lifetime experience. My only request is that this facility only offer the explorer option where you just touch and meet the dolphins vs the swimming options which is more having dolphins pull you on their fins around or push you on a boogie board. I feel it was wearing out the skin on their beaks/mouths. Also I am suspicious as we supposedly had GOYA the dolphin who was a boy. The instructor had called him by a different name at first. Then later on I come to find out that Goya is supposed to be a girl. So they are just using any old dolphins and assigning them the names of their main “characters”. Wonder what happened to the real Goya who is a female not the male we swam with.

    Ultimately the explorer package is the most humane. Hope these dolphins are happy and well cared for. They seemed ok other than the scraping off of the beaks.

    Wonderful experience!! Very hands on, but the photos were very much over priced. It gave me a bad taste. Either way it’s an amazing experience that I highly recommend!! The staff was wonderful with the animals and guests!!

    We had a great time. We were there as a group of 11 person on April 29, 2022.
    We bought the day pass.
    The bar tender at the bar was pleasant and great service. I will give his service a 10. We had a wonderful time.
    However my credit card was charges double. I have tried to call the resort with no avail.
    Can I get an email please. I am reachable at ann_marlin@hotmail.com

    We just want something close that we could walk to from our place. We found this great place that was kind of off the beaten path. They had cold Presidente and different stuff than what we had found in the other gift shops

    Staying at Ancora Cap Cana on the water of the Marina. Beautiful facilities. Be sure to walk out to the entry into the marina for a great drink at the beach bar on the north side of the entry.
    Actually saw manatees swimming in the entrance.

    Algunas tiendas buenas con buenos precios. Otras muy costosas y mala atención o cerradas. Buen sitio para artesanias de calidad. Most of the Shops were very nice specially the handycrafts.

    BUT the transportation service from the hotel is EXTREMELY expensive. No wonder people prefer not to get out of the hotel.

    I belive if the Dominicans REALLY want to compete against other turistic destinations, they have to take control over this issue.

    IMPERATIVO que los dominicanos solucionen el tema de transporte para los turistas. Básicamente cobran segun la cara. Ningun orden, poco servicio
