          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.
