    There is racism .. the food is very bad, the security is causing problems and it walks on you. staff disrespectful. they speak annoyingly loud every morning and disturb you while you sleep. I'm staying here for work. If you are going to choose for a holiday, I never recommend it, please choose other hotels in the vicinity.

    Check-in was fast and prompt take time to read the information on the map. Towel key cards are turned in for towels you just replace them and at the end get your card back. If you need information on what is happening around the resort there is a sign with daily events and times to the left of steps at beach one bungalow down. Pools are walk-in or one step. Handicap boardwalks out to the beach are nice but there is still a hill to get to the beach. All places are handicap accessible except by VIVA sign there are 2 steps. As I said this was on a mobility scooter I can walk just not far distances. The best guess resort is between 30 to 50 acres and the beach is 1/2 mile long. It is huge. Snorkeling is great be sure and go from one end to the other of the beach. I couldn't get out at the Viva sign but just went back to other end. Crystal clear water not tons of coral but good fish, eels, octopus, pufferfish, trumpet fish, etc. Dive boats go right in front of the beach area. Bungalows are just a room but nice and clean. Handicap accessible ones have a huge roll-in shower the bench was way too low and small for me but I had a rollator so just sit on it. If not I'm sure they would have brought a chair. The staff works extremely hard to make everything great and were very friendly. Most do speak Spanish but always willing to figure out your needs. Everything is kept extremely clean. Food was good always a selection of pork, chicken, pasta, pizza, salad, fruit, and dessert. Every meal they take temperature, sanitize and at buffet require a glove. For 7 days you get 3 specialty restaurants. Due to covid, there is one. The food was ok. First visit to the Dominican Republic and an all-inclusive hotel. We were so impressed and hope to go back soon. Most excursions leave from the dock at the resort. One argument between couples inside the resort and it was handled quickly. There is a small town outside the entrance of the resrort l we went out ate, drank, shopped, and felt safe. The Covid testing is at the resort and for us was free and results back within a day. LOVED IT! We stayed 13 days. Meeting people from other countries was also so great!

    Our stay was great and unforgettable. The resort was very clean, beautiful and what is the most important all the People from the service were so kind and helpful. What is more our waiter Yonny was so wondeful man. Every dinner he made us feel so special and his service was premium every night. He was so nice and interesting person. He made sure that we did not run out of wine :D The shows, music was great. All animators and dancers were awesome ppl too. I feel like all of them know our names after like few days hahah. I want to come back there one day. I already miss the Dominican rum and cigars. Best wishes, Ricky Martin
