We stayed at this Resort for a week in November 2011. Although the Resort was smaller than any others we had visited, it was clean, adequate and the staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was very cozy and comfortable. The pool was small, but, we enjoyed it each day. The ocean was beautiful, but, the waves were a little...

We stayed at this Barceló Resort in late March into early April this year for 2 weeks. This was an Air Canada Vacation package out of Canada. The price was very reasonable ($5,400), and it was all inclusive. The grounds were very lush, and well kept. The rooms were very nice and we had a balcony. The food was very...

We stayed at Langosta Beach in June 2011 and really enjoyed our time there. The property is next to a preserve and howler monkeys are often heard and spotted. The summer is considered green season but the rain had little effect on our trip. Most of the rain occurs at night. We walked into town regularly, about 2K, a little...

Stayed at the Barcelo Langosta Beach the last week of August. It was maybe 25% full and they didn't scrimp on anything. The meals were some of the best I have ever had at an AI. The entertainment, though basic, was full of enthusiasm. Jauquin is the best. The rooms were spacious and the beds were amazingly comfortable. Even the...

Read some of the other reviews. Couldn't find anything wrong with accomodation, food, drinks and activities. My only comment is can they take the CD of Zamfir playing Elton John songs that is playing in the front lobby seven days a week and throw it away. Nice on day 1, makes you sick by day seven. Recommend walking into town,...
