Best Beach—very nice resort!
The resort was very nice. Jr Suite room was spacious. We had hot shower every day. Rooms could be a little cleaner but overall pretty good. Main complaint is despite tipping maid daily she never restocked our drinking water. Had to go to desk to get it or call. No one else in our party in other rooms had this issue. The beach was beautiful at this location. The best section of beach we have been to in the DR. Food was average. Buffet pretty good. Ala carte we ate at Italian and Japanese. Not great and extremely long wait for food. Service at bars were great. Pool area very clean. We were very disappointed that there was not much pool entertainment. Maybe an hour or two per day or none at all. Other resorts we have been to have things happening at pool all day. Do not play the marble game at the casino. They lead you to that game and it’s a scam. That was very disappointing. We read up on others being scammed there after the fact. Luckily our loss was minimal because we were skeptical. Overall great resort for the money and we would come again.

Punta Cana over Christmas in perfect weather!!
My stay was great. The property is very large and the staff was awesome! I wasn't very impressed with the food though. Otherwise, all was well once I arrived. Did the monkey excursion, which was awesome. I will say when booking via hotels.com to pay attention to the free shuttle that is offered (which is not free and i has to find my own and now awaiting to be reimbursed). Otherwise, it was very nice

Great staff!! I just think it’s time for some room updates. Leaks, cold shower water, poor plumbing. Stayed out of the room more than we were in, which helped.
