We’ve had a really long wait for this holiday due to Covid but it did not disappoint us at all. Our room was clean, spacious and had everything we needed. Maids came in everyday to clean and top up the fridge. Love the open plan style of the rooms at this hotel. The pool area is clean, always enough loungers. Desiree kept our drinks topped up for us and always had a smile on her face. Beach is just stunning, get up early to watch the sunrise! Entertainment team are brilliant. Roberto and Eduin are so funny and had us in hysterics most days. Jose also managed to get my partner dancing which is usually an impossible task! The team do a fantastic job and really made our holiday. Pool party with them all was a highlight of our trip. We ate at the buffet for breakfast and lunch and we were always greeted with a smile. Great selection of food and never had a bad meal. Highly recommend the freshly made omelettes and poached eggs, they also do the best crispy bacon! Special mention to Carlos and Ramon who looked after us most days. We also ate at MEAT, Limbo, Portofino, Rodizio and Tequila and can not recommend them highly enough. The circus cocktail at MEAT is a must! All of the staff at the hotel are so friendly and they work so hard to make your stay the best. I really can’t understand some peoples complaints. We loved our stay and can’t wait to come back!

This is definitely not a 5 star hotel, this should be advertised as a 3 star at best. Food variety adequate, a la crate restaurants were a waste of time, arrived on time given a drink and ordered, starters came, then 35 mins wait for our mains, desserts we gave up waiting on! Hotel continually ran out of vodka and cava every other day. What was appalling was drinks, spirts and cocktails were served in plastic cups, even if you were in the main lobby bar. You only got a glass in the main restaurant, if you tried to leave with the glass staff took it off you and poured your drink into a plastic cup! When we complained about lack of glasses and drinks running out the bar manager replied it’s because there are too many people here! Surely management should be aware of guest capacity and supply the demand accordingly. Entertainment was poor and mostly in Spanish. We had a swim up room, which was very basic, no toiletries, no face flannels or toilet brush. Pool area gents toilets were a disgrace, one unit was out of order the entire 2 weeks we were there. Garden areas were nicely kept and clean. Our last 2 days again no vodka, cava or tonic waters. Been to other hotels in Punta Cana which are far superior to this hotel. I would not recommend this hotel.

There were several things that we weren’t happy with but the biggest issue was letting people “reserve” chairs by the pool. My friend was out every morning between 5:30 and 6:00 and many chairs already reserved with towels and personal things. Staff did nothing about it. The food was ok. Some a la cartes better than others. Tried to reserve the night we got there but most were already booked for times we wanted. Didn’t know you could book online ahead of time. Despite having 24hr room service they would not deliver a bottle of house wine to the room. I was told to go to the bar and get it by the glass! Service!? Bar service at the pool and the lobby was slow. Very few staff and only a few of them seem to be liking their jobs. It poured rain 2 days but couldn’t find an umbrella anywhere. Oh and unless you’re travelling as a couple beware! The bathrooms have no privacy. Glass shower walls. No curtains, no doors except to the toilet. Also, maybe just me but we spent 10 minutes looking at the beach area our second day and I got eaten alive by something. Couldn’t go back to the beach. As for pros, the room was clean and grounds were neat and tidy. Our room was close to the pool. Overall, it’s a big resort with many smaller sections and I just don’t think they’re doing a good job of catering to everyone.

After waiting nearly 3 years to come here it was definitely worth the wait! Fantastic hotel, fantastic rooms and facilities and the staff simply can't do enough for you! These guys in the picture Roberto and Eduin from the entertainment staff never fail to put a smile on your face and are always dancing around having the best time. I want to give Jose and the rest of the entertainment team a shout out as a whole (I don't know everyone's name) but they all deserve credit for the effort they put in everyday... Also the kitchen staff, the waiters and waitresses in all of the restaurants and the bar staff... They are all absolutely phenomenal and I can't wait to come back!
