    Well, just came back from 1 week in Atmosphere. Yes it’s very quiet and relaxing place but very poor selection of drinks compared to other resorts in Playa Dorada. Beach restaurant is just a joke! Entertainment is on very amateurish level. Main restaurant is not bad, room was good. But again ,compared to other resorts what I visited in Puerto Plata,this one is the worst.

    positives- Nice though older hotel, good buffet/restaurant food, great views, nice beach area ( a walk or buggy ride away) in the Playa Dorada complex. Great friendly staff all over resort. Cons- Older hotel, may be too quiet for some, walk or ride to the beach. One buffet that can get crowded quickly. 2 a la cartes that were open only two nights we were there. Lots of Mosquito's in the bedroom and dining room/bars, bring spray. Limited entertainment. Tried to get smaller US bills at the front desk 8 times, no luck. The hotel itself is small but the lake and the golf course make it seem much bigger. It was a quiet week when we were there the buffet food was nice and the staff excellent, had no trouble getting served. On the week end which included Dominican Day, lots of locals ( nice and friendly) came in for two to three days. I then noticed that the buffet stations (2) got quickly crowded. I really enjoyed the food on Dominican theme night. We had a standard room with two double beds, it was suitable. We overlooked the VIP pool which was small and never saw anyone there. All the action was at the main pool. The bar service was good at beach and pool. Waiter service for drinks was non existent, they did take away empties and kept the area nice and clean. The Red flag was flown at the beach everyday and no lifeguard. The ocean water was warmer than the pool and was nice to swim in, minimal weed. Nice for long walks. Did a tour with a taxi driver and toured downtown and the cable car. Good day as it was cloudy and rained in the morning. Still had great views from Isabel Torres park. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again, I base this on the food and especially the friendliness of the staff. I could name them all as being helpful and friendly. The last night/day I got sick and would especially like to thank Domingo from the buffet as he was a great kid and waiter and thoughtfully made me a drink to settle my stomach with out being asked to. I am really impressed with all the staff at this hotel.

    We have been many times to the Dominican Republic as we find it has the best value for all inclusive vacations. In June we enjoyed staying at the nearby V Haven and this seems a similar resort We booked with West Jet vacations. The flight and service were good but be aware that unlike other airlines, you don't get any free check in bag so that adds $65 for each ticket. The grounds a the resort are beautiful. Food is good and well cooked. Srvice is good everywhere. This the low season and few activities. On the plus side no line ups anywhere and not crowded. The gym is well equipped and with new machines. In the room we had a large screen TV with many premium English channels. There were some mosquitoes in our room and in the dining room area, especially in the evening. Good choice if you are looking for a relaxing vacation with good food and service.

    Here less than 24 hours and it's still wonderful. Staff remembered us and it just gets better. The room was prepared and had a welcome back banner on our door. Off to the beach for lunch and a long walk.

    A very happy birthday!

    VH Atmosphere has the nicest staff - from the front desk to the servers to the housekeepers to the people that drives the golf cart down to the security guards. No worries about leaving your room because they do not move any of the stuff inside. The place is kept clean and well manicured. They also made sure that they decorate the room for my birthday. Which is a plus! Thank you for making our stay a very pleasant one. We hope to come back here soon. Thank you everyone. ??
