Pas adapté aux Français, supp Prefered Club obligé

Posted 18-Aug-2016
Pros: La plage, les animations, la chambre
Cons: Qualité variété nourriture, no buffet dans resto du midi en bord de plage réservé aux Pref Club. Menu très restreint et beaucoup hamburges frites
Location: Bavaro près du débarcadère. Sorties en mer de toutes sortes, plongées et attraction dauphins , bateaux avec danse et musique, parc Menati, rando quad,
Si pas Prefered Club: pas de bonnes prestations : Nourriture pas à la hauteur du tout, uniquement clients US visés Beaucoup trop de passages bateaux à moteur Très bonne animation et spectacles Pas de distinction après entre ceux qui payent le supp et les autres qui profitent sans payer sur les transats, dans les piscines soient-disant réservées, etc...

Stunning pools set in beautiful tropical gardens.

Posted 17-Aug-2016
Pros: There was always lots to do or choose from with a wide variety of entertainment and activities on offer. The in house entertainment was excellent.
Cons: The food was a little bland but the buffet dining offered a lot of variety, with many separate dining rooms and restaurants open till late.
Location: The hotel was right on the beech front and not too far from the airport. Lots of activities on offer at the beech such as parascending and boat rides.
We had a delightful stay and felt the staff could not do enough to meet our needs and make us feel welcome. When we arrived we received a free upgrade to the adults only section of the hotel which meant we had separate pool, beech area, restaurants and entertainment exclusively for our use as well as access to the rest of the hotel facilities! The pools and tropical gardens were stunning offering a really relaxing atmosphere with a constant stream of waiters ready to fetch bar drinks. Our room was large and felt like a mini suite with fridge, coffee maker, iron etc. plus king-size bed with seating and a balcony with a spa bath- which is probably why so many people had chosen to visit for anniversaries and honeymoons. We really felt pampered throughout our stay. The rooms had excellent air con and a ceiling fan to ensure we were comfortable and cool. Plenty of food was available throughout the day and we particularly enjoyed the open-air beech restaurants.There was always something to do with a wide variety of activities on offer to suit all tastes. We were able to try sea kayaking, yoga on the beech and join in a foam party at the pool. The evening entertainment was also very varied with colourful and exciting dance routines often provided by the highly talented in house team but we also watched a thrilling trapeze show and magic act. All in all we felt we experienced a real taste of the island.

hôtel et personnel accueillant proche de la plage

Posted 02-Jul-2016
Pros: Le personnel, la plage, l'hôtel, la mer (chaude), la tranquillité.
Cons: Mettre des patins sous les meubles pour éviter le bruit lorsque ces derniers sont déplacés.
Location: Beaucoup d'excursions possibles mais assez chères. Excursion Dolphin Explorer à conseiller.
1 semaine de rêve dans un beau complexe en all Inclusive en "Preferred Guest". Le personnel est souriant, gentil, à l'écoute, toujours prêt à satisfaire à nos demandes. A notre demande, nous avons pu changer de chambre le lendemain de notre arrivée pour avoir une meilleure vue sur la mer. Ménage fait tous les jours. Draps de plage changés tous les jours. Nourriture de qualité et variée. Plusieurs restaurants, donc pour tous les goûts. Plage propre et surveillée toute la journée afin d'éviter les désagréments. Service de boissons sur votre transat sur la plage. Suffisamment de transats disponibles pour tout le monde.

average nothing special staff friendly

Posted 01-Jul-2016
The hotel looks great however the toilets aren't clean and are always blocked. One day the hotel staff called us to reception said we owed them extra money as we had sneaked a person in. We haven't sneaked anyone in we he paid Expedia for 6 people and had 3 rooms they argued for us demanded we settle the bill. Made us feel like thrives. I asked them to call Expedia they said we should call them I said we can't and have all the paperwork so could they talk to Expedia. After making us wait 40 mins they came and apologised to us said they had been an admin error. I said mistakes happen but they way hey treated us was awful like we had stolen something. They then offered us an upgrade for $200 we paid but really it should have been free after our traumatic and humiliating experience

Awesome hotel on the awesome beach!

Posted 25-May-2016 on Orbitz
Pros: All inclusive drinks Very attentive staff Very relaxed atmosphere convenience of getting/food/drinks/anything you need
Cons: Food - food was a little dicey, I got sick the last night TV - NBA playoffs on, couldnt even get them in spanish (lame complaint sorry)
Location: We went on an excursion to sonoma beach, it was awesome. Makes the resorts beach look like a sewer Dont go anywhere off resort, drivers are INSANE
We went for 6 nights in the "rainy" season may 10-17. We were hesitant but It rained maybe one evening for a few hours and that was all. The weather was fantastic, the staff was very friendly and very accommodating to the simplest of inquiries. Preferred Package definitely not worth it, You get access to like one restaurant, one extra pool, and your rooms are more secluded (slightly, just a door with a key card). If you are a younger, more relaxed person, this place is awesome and is a real bang for your buck, and you absolutely dont need to upgrade to preferred. If you are a snarky middle aged mother, or on a very private honeymoon, preferred may be a good upgrade. The 'constant' badgering by sales people is not that bad at all. You maybe talk to 2 people a morning, and if you simply say no thanks, or make something up like we are leaving tomorrow they wont waste your time or theirs. If you are a person who cant say no, you may be in trouble. We did one of the excursions by these guys, Sonoma beach or something (awesome, highly recommend!!) Only major con was food, very repetitive and dicey at times, I got sick the last night. If you are expecting 3 or 4 star cuisine you came to the wrong place, but if you dont mind an omelette for breakfast, a cheesburger for lunch, and a 6.5/10 plate of food from a restaurant for dinner, then you will have little to complain about.

Dear Orbitz, Thank you for taking part of your time to share your comments about your stay in our hotel. It is great to read the weather was fantastic your entire stay and that you could experiment the friendliness of our people. Regarding to the value of upgrade to Preferred club, consider that the benefits of it are not limited to two private pools and an exclsuive area at the beach, but also upgrade of room amenities, rooms closer to the beach and pools, butler service and private check in. We hope this visit can be repeated in the future. Best regards

Vacances de rêves dans un endroit magnifique

Posted 23-May-2016
Pros: La décoration de l’hôtel était moderne et soignée. Le site de l’hôtel était vraiment magnifique. C'était très beau pour prendre des photos.
Cons: Tout est bien.
Je suis parti avec ma femme du 11 mai au 18 mai. C'était vraiment magnifique ! Nous recherchions un endroit où il faisait chaud et beau au mois de mai. Nous avons eu un super beau temps (30 à 35°C la journée). Il faisait très chaud avec un beau ciel bleu. J'ai choisi cet hôtel car les avis étaient très positifs. Maintenant, je comprends pourquoi. Tout est super. les chambres, sont très grandes (46m²) pour la mienne avec un balcon, un jacouzy, un lit king size énorme et très confortable. En plus il y avait une très belle douche italienne. La chambre était très propre et nettoyé deux fois par jour. Le mini bar était rempli chaque matin. Il y avait aussi un room service. Tout étaient compris dans le prix. Le personnel était très gentil et pro, toujours souriant. Il y avait 6 restaurants et la cuisine était très bonne et variée. Il y avait un restaurant buffet, un italien, un français, un japonais, un mexicain et un grill. Il y avait aussi un snack bar sur la plage. On s'est vraiment régalé. Il y avait également des activités tous les jours (fitness, jeux de plage, zumba, salsa bachata, volley, tir à l'arc, jeux apéros, mousse partie, kayak ...). les animateurs étaient très cools, dispos marrants et avaient énormément de pêche. ils dansaient super bien et s'éclataient à la moindre occasion. Ils mettaient beaucoup d'ambiance. Si vous avez des enfants c'est super aussi. Il y a plein d'activités pour eux. Ils ont une petite piscine et pleins de jeux. Je recommande. C'est top.
