My girlfriend and I had tons of fun at this resort. It is probably the oldest resort in Puerto Plata, and you can tell. The rooms are outdated (Just like most of the hotels in third world countries). This didn't affect our trip in the least. The room was always clean, and the staff were always friendly and accomodating. The two beaches are gorgeous, and there are tons of fish swimming around the reefs in front of the resort, so the snorkling is pretty fun. The food was good. Of course, the dominican republic is a third world country, and this isn't a 5 star resort, so don't expect gourmet 12 course meals, but my girlfriend and I always found something in the buffet we liked to eat, and we were never left hungry. The drinks are good. If they are too weak; instead of complaining about it on a website, just tell them to add more alcohol next time, if they are too strong, then them to add less. Simple. The bartenders are great, and also very accomodating. There are a few stray dogs and cats on the resort, but they didn't bother me in the least. They aren't the least bit dangerous, and they are pretty cute actually. There are tons of stray dogs and cats all over the Dominican, so this resort certainly isn't the only resort with this problem. The entertainment was really good on certain nights, and lacking on other nights, but after visiting plenty of other all inclusives, this is pretty much par for the course. There are rooms that you have to use a spiral staircase to get to, however these are the bargain rooms, and they are by far the cheapest rooms in Puerto Plata. If you pay a few extra bucks when you book your trip, you can get a much nicer room. If you can't afford to do that, then maybe you should be going to Puerto Vallarta, which is much less expensive instead of the dominican republic. The casino is corrupt. I didn't even step foot into it once, but honestly, if you want to spend your holiday gambling, you should go to Vegas instead of the dominican. There are too many fun things to see and do outside in Puerto plata, why confine yourself to the casino?
