Beautiful resort with plenty of food options and all delicious. We enjoyed all of the shows at night and the pool activities. Golden Boy and Junior (aka 69) were the life of our trip. They were so friendly and entertaining. They truly made us feel known and part of their family in the short time we got to know them. They made sure we had a great time and participated in all the fun pool games. The rest of the staff was friendly and our room was always so clean and stocked with towels and mini fridge refills. Also all the drinks were absolutely amazing. Must experience.
A Relaxing Trip
Aug 08, 2022
Stayed a week for a friend trip and booked the two story roof top terrace with plunge pool….best room ever and I have been on over a dozen Caribbean vacations.
The friendly staff works hard. The grounds are immaculate. The Excellence Club is worth the perks: always had a great beach chair and towels and a drink. Asked for a fan for the room and it was there in less than 30 minutes.
Food: Room service was top notch and timely. Kitchen Table is the place for whatever you could dream for breakfast..fresh and tasty. Agave and The Grill were great. Their soups are out of this world. Oregano was great, too. Magna was terrible. Lamb was leather. This low quality surprised me because Magna is solely for Excellence Club. They don’t seem to know their menu and the waitstaff wasn’t very friendly. Did not try other restaurants. Make sure to read dress codes… all restaurants enforce them. Never had to wait for a table.
The entertainment was lively. Dominican Tuesday… they don’t let you down. As I just wanted a relaxing stay, I didn’t attend shows, but people said they were great.
Bring a tumbler for your drinks. Easiest and keeps your drink ice cold. The beach is mesmerizing. The sargassum that’s infiltrated much of the Caribbean takes away from the beach, but they clear it continuously without much disturbance. Water is choppy, but saw catamaran and other water sports, so it’s doable.
Will return again.
