"Very well maintained property, close to the beach,"
The restaurants were first class. Excellent dining experiences. Well trained staff offering excellent service and the food was the best I have had in over 25 years of going to the Dominican. The beach was cleaned every morning and staff continued to rake all day. They even have lifeguards on duty.
For the most part we enjoyed our stay. We didn't like the frequent phone calls. The staff is awesome and very friendly. A couple of the ladies in the shops were not too friendly. My husband was a 911 responder and his lungs are really messed up because of that, so when I neighbor started to smoke we had to go in the room. Walking outside we had to walk through a cloud of smoke from the smokers. The beach was beautiful, we loved the spa and gym. We would go again, but would not do the presentation with Unlimited Vacation Club. Took up our whole day just about.
We stayed at the resort over Thanksgiving about 8 days; used all three of the separate resorts. Food was good to exceptional for the daily meals; specialty ones okay to good. All service everywhere excellent except checkout needs to be re-engineered to make it easier. The wedding department did a perfect job on every aspect of our wedding; you need to trust them and communicate by email as best way. The beach a little challenging as much wind and sea grass while there, and you have water between the reef and shore which is neither big waves nor smooth, protected water so some sports not so good. Drinks good. Fishing was good but water rough for those who have trouble with that sort of thing; no bones in the DR. No bugs so no worries about the related problems.
If you want a laid back beautiful place with good all inclusive food and excellent service, and/or wedding spot then they are a great place. Beach nice to sit on but no real snorkeling opportunity, water sports and no bones.
