    Resort magnificent , rooms excellent , now I did speak to people who had room issues ( I never) but ppl were moved... Ala carte restaurants were very good , food Better than expected ....Boulevard not quite finished but will be exceptional when complete...nightclub / English pub and theatre in Blv are all very impressive and I was shocked at the scale of the place. Staff were excellent and polite to all nationalities could not do enough for you ( give them a tip, they work hard, for not enough money)...witnessed security deal with really drunk ppl with far more sensitivity than they’d get in UK) still not running a 100% but will be the Premier resort in DR once 100%...big thanks to Jefferson Rodriguez (theatre) & Wilkin Richardson @ GF beach bar ...needs to be promoted to Green/ black shirt...beautiful new resort not perfect yet but I do recommend

    Do not hesitate to book at this resort. It is amazingly beautiful. We could not get over the decor as it was more and more amazing from one place to another (Coffee Place, English Pub, Sports Bar, Theatre Lobby, etc.). A la carte restaurants, drinks and room comfort makes the resort a true 5*. Inari was the best with freshest fish! But overall what made our trip the most enjoyable are the staff we met. They are all so helpful and smiley! In particular, Ruth Nesbitt at the lobby bar with amazing service and a smile to die for, Gaby Rosario at the Inari Restaurant with her amazing sens of humor (and all the staff at this place are such amazing people - see picture) and José Mercedes at the Sports Bar that is the best bartender ever! We also had a lot of fun with the 3 bartenders at the disco! Things to improve for me would be: - Adult area pool which has no advantage compare to other pools (no shade, no view) - Buffet food was cold - Animation team not present at night entertainment - No advertisement of the entertainment activity at night -Could use some structure for shading in the main pool Kudos for: - No need for keys or card to enter room -Bathroom everywhere that are super nice and clean -Beautifull and well maintained pool

    This place is AMAZZZZINNNNGGGGGG !! Do not hesitate to book

    We had an amazing time at this amazing resort. The decor and architecture of this hotel is to die for! Beautiful, elegant, chic! They have invested so much money into this place. The room was pretty and super clean. The hotel capacity was probably at 30-40% because it was low season. Enough chairs everywhere, multiple pools, umbrellas available. Food was delicious and we really enjoyed the a la carte restaurants. No seaweeds when we were there. Things to improve: the temperature of the food in the buffet (almost cold) and the animation team. There are not much during the day and I suggest that some of the staff would be at the disco at night to do a bit of Entertainment with the guests. After all the mixed reviews, I can honestly confirm that this place is and will be the best of Punta Cana. A HUGE THANK YOU to RUTH NIBITT in the lobby for her extraordinary service and beautiful smile, you are the best! Thank you to Gaby Rosario at the Japenese and to Jose Mercedes at the sports bar. The staff at this resort is the best I have had in the DR. Do not hesitate to book this hotel. It will become a 5+ hotel very soon.

    The resort was beautiful don’t get me wrong but many things were a turn off. I know they were remodeling which is fine and it looked great. Very disappointed with service. We were a large party and spent over $20,000 and when we asked for beers we caught bartenders putting rum into our beers and no one asked for rum as some people are allergic and also do not drink rum. It’s as if they tried to get our party of over 50 people drunk so that we wouldn’t drink anymore which is crazy we paid like everyone else.there was about 15 people at a pool and someone from the staff told us to shutup because we were being too loud in a Public space. It is a big pool and we were not screaming or being obnoxious we were conscious of other people around us. We were scared to order more drinks because did not want to get sick and due to all the recent deaths and alcohol related incidents that happened in the country some people in my party were genuinely scared to have any kind of drinks fearing they would get sick. An act like this to mix drinks and put liquor in a simple beer when no one asked for liquor was scary and absurd. Some of the staff was great and they were truly sad that this happened to us. We made complaints to management but no one followed through and we were left unnoticed.
