Arrival: Feb 28 - March 7
We booked with Sunwing, from Ottawa, flight was great, airport was quick and check in at the resort, was quick as we were only two couples dropped off at the resort and it was evening when we arrived.

Rooms were very basic, nothing fancy, compared to other resorts we have stayed at, but were very clean, quiet (villa # 1133) near the hot tubs, far enough away from the main pool and the lobby. It was nice not to have the noise that you sometimes have in buildings. The maids did a wonderful job.

Restaurants and Bars
Bars, were amazing, quick service, they all had Expresso Machines, that was a real bonus for us, as we love Dominician coffee.
The Restaurants, were ok, Mexican was buffet, which was disappointing, Caribe was good, excellent service at all restaurants, including buffet. The food at the buffet was good, but very repetitive and unlike other resorts, presentation was lacking. This is were I would say it is really a 3 star, I would not have enjoyed staying here more than one week. The pizza and fries are amazing that are served at the Pool Bar Terrace,

This resort is huge, our villa was a good 15 minute walk to the beach, I didn't mind the walk, the beach was nice, but like most resorts you have to get out early a reserve your chairs at the beach or pool or you will not get one, this drives me crazy, to watch chairs with blue towels on the them, and no one around ever. The grounds were amazing, clean and really nicely kept, with turkeys, chickens, ducks, and peacocks enjoying themselves. This resort is 5 star as far as Beach/Pools/Grounds.

Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel
We didn't go on any tours, but we did walk around the little community around the resort area, were they have homes, other villas and apartment, we found the mall which is about a 7 minute walk up the road to your right at the main gates on our last day, I wish someone would have mentioned this to us prior, I did not find our Tour agent very helpful at the orientation. But we've been to DR so many times, there isn't much new or change. They had a great band playing every night, which was enjoyable.

Arrival: February 7 to 14 Arrived at the airport at 10 a.m. Went through customs really quickly and picked-up our luggage, also really quickly. Got to the Hotel within approximately 30 minutes after leaving the airport at approximately 1:00 p.m. Checked-in quickly, but had to wait until 3:00 p.m. to get our room as it was getting cleaned. Rooms Very very nice room and very clean. Air conditioning was a bit noisy, but it was working. Room was pretty sound proof as we could not hear any noise other than, once during the room, partyers coming late. First day after we got there, our room was not cleaned until 5:00 p.m. I had left 10 pesos (thinking it was worth approx. 3$ US) Next day, I left 3$ US, and each morning after also, and our room was cleaned ealier every day. Restaurants and Bars There were 3 a la carte restaurants, all very good. There were 3 bars (including one on the beach) and there was also one in the pool. There was a buffet at lunch time on the beach, which was excellent. There were two buffets for breakfast and for dinner, on the resorts, one of which was not open for lunch. The food was always warm and fresh. It was also good. They had a good variety although I did not taste everything (I'm fussy). However, we have no complaints about the food. Beach/Pools/Grounds Grounds were kept so clean. Every morning, the ladies were wahsing the grounds with javex and water and brooming. I have never seen a resorts so clean, including restrooms. There were 3 pools, all of them very clean and beautiful. The main pool was busier as the animation was there. The other two pools were more quiet. Chairs vere almost always available except for those ones which are reserved (pair of sandals on them) and not used all day long. Some of the tourists are irrespectful in that manner. Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel There was always some kind of animation on the beach and at the pool which was interesting to watch or to participate. Shows at night were ok although not as interesting from one night to the other. Animation staff was always very pleasant. Other Comments In general, I was happily surprised with this resort and would recommend it anytime. It was in fact, the best place I have been to. However, I was happy to be staying in the Village part and not the villas section as the villas were far away from the activities and the beach. But there was a little train going by all day long.
