    The resort is really old. Every part needs upgrading: furniture, walls, floors, bathrooms, lights. Food is the same everyday. Annoying locals around the resort leave garbage everywhere. The sidewalks are uneven so you have to be careful not to twist your ankle, especially at night...More

    I did not see any either, and I did quite a bit of exploring around the resort. If I had, I would have screamed long and hard, trust me!

    Hello TA members, I have booked for March 2017 my wife , daughter & her boyfriend (20's) and daughter 10. we have a 2 story ocean view room. Where are these located? Are there activities during the day? I understand you get what you pay for and I am not that picky. Some say that if you don't tip all the time it could affect service, is this true ? We have stayed at the Bluebay grand esmealda in Riv.Maya and various Bahia Principe in the Dom.Rep. are there amenities (soap,shampoo etc.) in the room? When the decription says mini bar does this mean just a fridge or more ? Thanks for any help that anyone can give me to re-assure us. Traveling with Sunwing. Safe Travels.
