July 2016 Family Vacation

Posted 23-Jul-2016
We were highly disappointed with the cleanliness, restocking supplies in the rooms, as well as replenishing food in buffets. We've traveled quite a bit all inclusive resorts outside the USA, don't think I've been so disappointed for our Family's Vacation. We were being told no by the staff, and the resort's air conditioning hardly worked at all. Also several of the restraints were never even open to book a Dinner. Not happy at all

This place is okay. Just okay.

Posted 18-Jul-2016
It was my first time out of the US. Punta Cana seemed like the right place to go. My girlfriend and I spent 5 days, 4 nights there. We had to change our room because of water dripping from the ceiling in the bathroom. Our second room was good. Clean, nice view of the pool area and the beach. The people working there are very friendly and helpful if you can get past the language barrier. The language barrier was to be expected. The food... Don't expect much from the food. Buffet style local cuisine that was not anything like what you would expect from the price you pay. The reason I say this place is just okay is take food quality (bad) + room quality (okay) + service quality (good) = just okay. If you do make the trip, go to the pool bar. Ask for Alejandro. This guy was the best. The nicest guy in the whole place. Make sure you tip him a dollar here and there and he'll make sure your trip is the best experience possible. Many of the tourists were from Europe and Mexico, most of which don't believe in tipping. Tip and you'll be very thankful you did. I never waited for a drink. I was drinking vodka and tonic. Smirnoff Is their vodka, but he poured me Stolichnaya because I was tipping him every other round. Beware of the guys in the khaki colored shirts that appear to work for the resort. They try to sell this VIP vacation package for $6,300 and become very rude to you when you decline. Extremely rude.

Okay resort

Posted 11-Jul-2016
Food poisoning on third day due to food staying out too long. The staff was courteous but no information was given regarding the all inclusive package and available recreation or how to reserve it. Our first night was not in the room we reserved. It was bigger (more empty space) but not better. That was what the receptionist told us as we checked into the hotel. It definitely not an upgrade. The property was well kept and the water was perfect, but much was left to deserved.

Horrible experience

Posted 27-Jun-2016
Pros: I do not like anything about this hotel- even the beach was dirty
Cons: everything could literally be improved
Location: super touristy area.
I had a horrible experience at this hotel- it is almost comical how bad it is. I traveled to this hotel and DR solo and the hotel staff acted as though I was bizarre for doing so. English is not readily spoken at this resort and staff frequently give you attitude if you do not speak Spanish and/or French. The staff are SOOOOO rude and literally sit at desks all day- good luck getting anything brought to your room- they will just tell you to go get it yourself. The food is literally disgusting- they use and reheat the same food nightly. The resort claims to be all inclusive and that's a joke too- the chef/ serving staff act like they are serving you their personal food and are incredibly rude and stingy if you try to make a plate in the buffet. Good luck getting a "reservation" in one of the specialty restaurant- the desk staff will just tell you they are all booked. Funny, when I flirted with the bell boy a spot magically opened up. when I went to the specialty restaurant ( Mexican) their was only 4 couples there-- so much for being booked. The serve alcohol ( if you even want to call it that) in tiny plastic Dixie cups- ghetto much! the room had 2 pillows that had probably been put in the washer machine 5000000X- they were so lumpy and felt like I was sleeping on tennis balls. The room service ( nonexistent).. don't even want to go there. If I could of left early and went back to NY I would of- this was a miserable experience

Good beach resort

Posted 23-May-2016
Pros: good food, good selection of imported liquors included, Japanese restaurant was fantastic (went 3 of my 7 nights)
Cons: spraying for mosquitoes
Location: parasailing, booze cruises, sailing
An absolutely fabulous resort, and I'd happily give it 5 stars if not for the mosquitoes. Unlike many beach resorts, where the higher-end imported booze, if it's included at all, is only available at the lobby bar, here every bar, including the beach bars, has imported gins, scotches, and vodkas available. The buffet varies nightly, and always has a wide range of great food. I wasn't thrilled with the Mediterranean or Brazilian restaurants; but loved the Japanese one (went there 3 out of my 7 nights, and was allowed in even when I didn't have a reservation). Just have a bit of a snack first, as the Japanese dinner involves a bit of a drawn-out food show, which can be really annoying if you're already really hungry, but really fun if you've already eaten something. Great beach, lots of sun loungers; great pool; had a nice room. But I was absolutely eaten alive by mosquitoes, and didn't like the lizards and even a tarantula running around the place; if not for this, I'd happily give it 5 stars and rush back.

Villaggio a bayahibe

Posted 09-May-2016
Pros: Posizione, spiaggia
Cons: Gestione lettini, Wi-Fi free
Villaggio carino con all inclusive di buon livello. Le camere sono un po' datate, ma accettabili. Spiaggia e mare incantevoli, da migliorare la gestione dei lettini in spiaggia che vengono riservati alle prime luci dell'alba e occupati parecchie ore dopo. Wi-Fi free inutilizzabile. Nel complesso un buon soggiorno.

Worst trip ever !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted 02-May-2016
Pros: Unfortunately, I did not like anything about this hotel. our rooms were never cleaned not even after calling to request clean towels at least.
Cons: This hotel mainly needs better customer service and better better hygiene.
This has been one of the worst trips ever. I booked six rooms that were suppose to be pool side views and this was done a few months in advance. When we arrive to check in we get the story that there aren't any poolside rooms available. Instead we are placed in rooms that were far from everything and no pool in sight. I don't understand how I booked and paid months in advance and what I paid for was not given to us. I have never been to a resort with such poor hygiene. The pools had leaves floating around which were never really cleaned out in the time I was there. The pool at sand at the bottom from people jumping in after they had been in the beach. It was just disgusting. terrible experience.

Very beautiful resort. Very tropical as I like them. Beautiful pools,beach and great food. Beautiful gardens with fruit trees and plants. The only thing I was disappointed with was that there was barely any activities and music by the pool like I'm used to,everything was at the beach. Overall I loved it and would go back
