Too expensive for the quality of service. Room service and cleanliness on the site are lacking. Personnel not too incluned to help, you have to make many requests before things get done. Bed is very hard for a 4 star hotel. Food and restaurants are ok. No service at the pool!

Hotel was great. We arrived and were taken to our room via golf buggy. Rooms very clean and grounds were maintained beautifully. We loved having the opportunity of going to the main buffet for breakfast or going pool/beachside in the smaller buffet restraunt. A la Carte restraunts were 1 visit per week. This broke the week up nicely as there...

Very nice place to stay and enjoy the surrondings. The service is outstanding and people are always smiling. The golf course (18 holes) is superb and definitely worth the trip to DR. There is no such a course up here in Québec, Canada. The 6th hole, the famous island is a hole to see and just trying to make the...

Overall the trip was fantastic, food was good, beach was stunning. The weather was amazing. Had shuttle service whenever you felt lazy. Wifi was sub-par, and A/C in the room was spotty. 9/10 trip. Will return again !

Amazing hotel. We booked this holiday kind of last minute as it was cheap, so weren't sure what to expect. Everything was Fab. Huge driveway to hotel made other people jealous and when we got there it got better. The hotel is right on the beach, with no other resorts (except the adults only Royal hotel) in sight.
