This was our second trip to this resort, 2 weeks this time. We went to this resort for the golf. Played 8 rounds, golf staff was great from the time we got picked up in the morning for the trip to the course, loading the bags for us and the course was in great shape. The resort itself was okay, with a few problems. Our bathroom ceiling had a leak which eventualy fell in , water on the floor. was patched up but the leak not fixed so its probably fallen in again ( room 6002). Maid service was fair, some days we got face cloths , some days they refilled the mini bar, not with what was used but what they had left in there carts. We had to ask for pop and beer. The food was what you expect from the buffet, warm not hot, picked over . The ala cartes were okay disappointed with the steakhouse, better steak at chez gourmet. The hostess at chez Gourmet take there job seriously, one of our group not allowed in because of open toed shoes he was wearing. But the most disappointing thing was when I GOT HOME. Opened my credit card statement to find a charge I did not make. The card was only used to pay for golf carts , so somewhere between the front desk and the golf pro shop my card was compromised. Will we return next year?

Overall a great trip. If you are looking for a "younger" crowd, Don't stay here maybe the sister resort next door instead. It was a very mature crowd, if you get what I am saying. The staff were all amazing besides the pool towel Nazi. She was not so nice but if you want to remain in her good graces than I recommend that you do NOT leave, lose, misplace, sell or steal your orange pool towels!! She will just point to a sign that says nothing about their strict policy which will send you walking to guest services. Other than that it was a relaxing getaway.

This was my first time visiting DR and this resort. I have to say that it was amazing & I would definitely recommend couples to stay here. We upgraded to premium level and had a 1st floor room leading right out to the beach. Premium members have access to a lounge room stocked with snacks, champagne and finger foods. Room service was included and we got a complimentary bottle of Barcelo Rum.

Our room was clean, our fridge was well stocked and we had everything we needed.

Our walk to the pool took less than a minute and we spent most of our time going between the pool and beach. The caribe buffet to me was better than the other buffet restaurant they had on the other end. Drinks at the bars overall were good, not great but we solved that by asking for extra rum to add to the drinks depending on what we were drinking. Restaurants are nearby, a quick trolley ride to the next hotel. All the restaurants were good but my two faves were the Mexican and the French.

We played ping pong, pool & bingo during our stay. They have tennis courts, golfing, a soccer field and basketball court which we didn’t even have time for. We booked tickets to CocoBongo with the hotel and there is a huge gift shop on the premises with everything you might need. There are more stores also on the other side at the Palace too. Also at the palace was a small casino and nightclub for those looking for a little more entertainment.

The entire staff was pleasant and helpful. I would recommend staying here.
