Super great stay

Cindy C (Chicago, Illinois) on Feb 18, 2024

We have stayed at several resorts in punta cana, most times at the excellence. The lopesan was a great resort and we will definitely be back!!. We had a small issue checking in and Victoria upgraded us to make sure we were satisfied. That was a great surprise! The food is all excellent, reservations were easy to obtain and every meal was good with lots of choices and great service. I just can't say enough about this place.

Fantastic resort ruined by inconsistent service and poor beach

R H on Feb 17, 2024

Checkin - We paid extra for the adults only section of the resort. Upon checkin, we did not get a welcome drink. We later found out that she was hiding behind the main entrance so some got them while others did not. We asked to have a higher floor as we would prefer not to hear people above us. We were told to go have lunch and come back after and they’ll have a room ready for us. We did as we were told, only to be assigned a room on the second floor. We said we can wait until a higher floor was available, but Edwin told us to come back the next day. Already a ding in customer service as we weren’t being heard. We were willing to wait, and he just didn’t do anything to accommodate our request. Our second floor room also lack hot water and had minimal water pressure. Not a great first impression. The next day, we went back to the check-in to get reassigned to another room. Once again, Edwin told us to come back after 5pm. We did so, this time it was another person. We said we would be ready in 30 min to move our bags. He said they would send someone to assist. Forty-five minutes later, I had to go back to the check-in desk to get someone to let us into the new room. Again, another ding in service. Food - food and service in the restaurants were hit or miss. We liked El Charro (Mexican), Inaki (Japanese) for food and service. If the quality of service that we received from the team there matched the rest of the resort, this would have been 5 stars all around. Unfortunately, that was not the case. Food at Gondola (Italian) was decent but the service was glacially slow. The Valley had some good service but it also can be the worst. For example, I requested a fried corn on the cob, and I got an XXL corn dog instead. I tried again for dinner with another staff, and she got it right. The French, Mediterranean and Steakhouse restaurants were mediocre. The most frustrating thing about the restaurants is that although you can reserve via the app, you’re limited for dinner between 630-845pm. Other resorts can sit you as late as 930p or 10pm. The restaurants aren’t open for lunch, with the exception of The Valley. This means you’re limited to the buffet during the day. Beach - this was awful. The boats are parked in front of the resort as well as the sides. They did nothing to clean up the seaweed. We arrived Saturday and left the following Saturday. It was only on our last day that the seaweed was cleaned. The swim area was cordoned off but it was rather small compared to the other resorts. The boats were often loud and played party music. If you were expecting quiet and relaxing, this beach is not for you. Facing the ocean, if you end up walking to the right for about 10-15 minutes, the beach in front of Barcelo was more quiet, relaxing and wider area for swimming. We literally spent the last 3 days there and it was better than Lopesan. Bring a beach mat (since you can’t use the chairs at Barcelo) and chill at that beach. It’s much nicer and literally just the next hotel over. It’s a lot quieter and the wider swim area means you’re not on top of other guests. Despite their policy, people had towels on the chairs reserved. Security wasn’t enforced. As noted, we spent a good portion of our beach days in Barcelo. They had security watch us to make sure that only their guests used their beach chairs. No such enforcement at Lopesan. Guests from other resorts were able to use the beach chairs. Also, there were no cocktail service on the beach. We saw one lady one time taking drink orders, but not in the same frequency as other resorts. Getting your drinks is inconvenient. Room/property- perhaps it’s their best feature. Nothing to complain about. It’s nice and modern, and well-decorated. They had a show every night in the theater. It does get super loud, so you might want to wear ear plugs if you have it. They change the show nightly, so there is good variety, even if it might not be your cup of tea. App - convenient to reserve and view the menu for restaurants, but certain things are stupidly lacking. For example, you can buy extra towels but you can’t ask for extra towels within the housekeeping request of the app. If you want extra towels, order a vanity kit or something else and add it to the comments. Service - Ultimately this is where Lopesan is lacking. If this is your first all-inclusive and didn’t know any better, then I can see how this can be awesome. However, if you’ve been to other resorts, then you know Lopesan is towards the bottom half. This is our first trip to the Dominican Republic, and the service and attitude was so bad at times compared to Cancun, for example, that it made us not want to come back to the country. That said, we met some other couples who gave us other recommendations, so we we’ll give the DR another try. Summary - While the property is nice and modern and housekeeping was good, the best way to describe Lopesan is inconsistent. Some food was outstanding, but service and hospitality is not something that comes naturally. Other all-inclusives bend over backwards, Lopesan doesn’t care. The beach wasn’t as quiet, clean or idyllic. Walk just a few minutes to the left or right of the property and you’ll instantly feel like you got the short end of the stick when it comes to the beach. We spent a lot of money to get an upgraded adults only, and I wouldn’t even bother. For the same amount of money, other guests have recommended that we try Excellence or Secrets Cap Cana, as they too were disappointed like us. If this isn’t your first all-inclusive, keep your expectations low and you just might enjoy it. Overall, we’ve been treated way better from other resorts for cheaper that I guess we had a tough time adjusting to mediocrity.
