Hotel was basic although rated at 4 star. The best thing about this hotel is the staff. They would do anything for you.This is apart from the reception staff. They were unhelpful and unfriendly. The best team was the animation team. They were great. Especially Friesita. She was a star.

I have been travelling to the Dominican Republic (DR) for pleasure for 27 years. I am going to rate my experiences on this trip based on my own scale of my experiences in DR as the star system used by various companies to rate hotels in DR does not compare to the same star system used in Canada.
