Based on reviews and reputation, we came here for quiet. Unfortunately, they have changed their approach. At virtually all hours there is loud obnoxious music and loud obnoxious announcements. I am here right now. It is 10 pm. I am in my room and it feels like i am listening to a boxing announcer full of hype. They have been...

Great service from the staff (especially animation guys - Jesse etc.) who are really pleasant and helpful. Great variety of excellent food, beautiful nature all around you, well maintained garden and all facilities. Felt really like in heaven. Small negative was the 'comfort'...

Relatively small resort, located roughly ~1.5 hours from Santo Domingo airport, ~40 min. from Punta Cana airport, and ~20 min. from La Romana airport by car. We've only stayed Privileged and once in the Honeymoon suite, therefore this review's focused on that experience. Rooms: Honeymoon suites are the largest, and located near the entrance lobby to the resort - the...
