This was our 2nd trip here. We upgraded to the Premium Level which was worth every single penny. Having easy access to Wi-Fi when it was needed was fantastic. The Premium Level suite was also a nice escape from the larger, busier bars. You could probably say the rooms could be upgraded, but they were clean, spacious and fully functional. Our view of the ocean was spectacular. The beach is I think the best of the resorts in the area. I felt that the staff was actually friendlier this time and I thought better at communicating in English. The food is the only thing that I find needing some improvement. It might just be that I don't understand DR approach to food but there were meals that were awful. As a return guest we got to attend a special dinner which was the best food of anyplace we ate - they should extend some of that food to the resort in general. I would easily recommend this resort to anyone. For the price the resort is absolutely great, the beach is perfect and don't be afraid to upgrade a little - well worth it!

It’s hard to pick a resort when you read all the negative reviews, so I looked at 10 reviews good and bad and made my decision. This was our second time in Punta Cana and loved this property. Staff was extremely friendly, food was decent, rooms were clean and always had hot water, view from the room was awesome! The hotel is not huge which is what we wanted and the pools were not that crowded. The beach was magnificent and clean, as were the pools. The negative things I can say is where our room was located in building 3 floor 2 it above the buffet so it was very noisy starting early in the morning and later in the evening. Also, would've been nice to have a pool waiter but there was nothing wrong with having to get our own drinks. Will definitely be going back!

The views were spectacular; the room suited my needs, however would have liked shampoo included in bathroom. It was hard since there was no pharmacy onsite.
