    This last trip must be my 5th time in the Dominican, if I can count correctly, and I can say that the value vs. cost here is fantastic, and it may be the best option in Punta Cana, for the price. Firstly all the employees, from the reception to the different waiters and bartenders, and even housekeeping, are very experienced and do their job to the best of their abilities. Our breakfast was more plentiful and had more options than most places I've experienced int he Caribbean. All the other stuff, like beach, pool, restaurants, dinner, room, were really good. Beautiful beach and sunny weather every single day. Dont hesitate book this hotel, we had a really amazing time and mostly because the hotel is so great and comfortable.

    Stayed here for 5 nights in a superior room, plenty of space, shower was ok and room was tidy. Food was very nice and rarely if ever ran out. Wasn’t too keen on the beer, so decided to go teetotal for the 5 day break. Swimming pools were clean and plentiful and the beach was also clean. No shortage of sun beds anywhere either. Staff appeared very friendly too. Overall a very pleasant and relaxed stay

    Loved the area and staff at this hotel.

    Very warm and genuine welcome from the receptionist after our long journey. Got checked in quickly and after dropping the luggage in the room we hit the beach which was amazing! So easy to and from the hotel room so when I wanted to go back earlier than my husband to get showered and ready for dinner it was quick and safe. The room was lovely. Spotlessly clean and modern with nice pool view. There is only salty water in the shower which takes a day or 2 to get used to, but it didn’t bother us. Food at the hotel was varied. Some evenings better than others for vegetarians but on the whole good quality and my husband loved it. The sushi was great. Like how they’ve put different swimming pools here and there around the property. The pool in the more traditional part behind felt very secluded and private which I liked, but also loved the rooftop seaview trendy pool! Staff all lovely. Always happy. A great hotel for couples.

    Great hotel in perfect setting. The room was very comfortable and looked great and the views worth every penny. Good shower and mattress was not too soft or too hard. Staff are very nice here. They would say hi when they passed by and one guy on reception was particularly good (didn’t catch his name). Food didn’t get boring and we stayed 10 nights. Lot’s of hot and cold choices and fruit available. Staff kept it well stocked and tables clean. The swimming pools were always clean too. Sometimes we’d go to the beach, sometimes use a pool. Spoilt for choice. Had a super relaxing time with my husband.

    This hotel is nice , good location for shops great for public transportation and a restaurant. Rooms : The which we stayed in was big had all we need bed was comfortable, pillows were for me a bit small but overall good . Room also had a mini fridge with complimentary water bottles. Amenities: There is a gym and five pools and obviously a beach . The pools are lovely one on the 5th floor impartiality is a infinity pool the bar at the pool is not included in the hotel price best you stock up on your drinks before going up . The gym is a outside gym there are fans but just be aware it’s very small only 3 machines and it’s very hot . The WiFi is good but there is no WiFi on the beach or by the most pool areas . The reception of the hotel are lovely and friendly and very helpful . The restaurant serves a wide variety of food , very Spanish influenced if your looking for spicy food this is not the island . The only complaint I have and what would put me off coming back to the hotel are the flies at the food area , now I know this is a tropical island and you have to expect insects but if it fumigated 3-4 times a week you shouldn’t see any flies or maybe perhaps one or 2 but at this hotel there are too many .
