The pools don't open until 10am and then closed at 6pm. They do not provide shuttle service as advertised. The walk is at least 1/2 a mile from restaurants to the beach. All but 3 restaurants are closed & those are two busy to accommodate our reservations. The teen hub and kids area never opened. Not 1 of the swim up bars ever opened. The line for a drink was over 30 mins many times. We watched them make frozen cocktails-with NO alcohol. The employees are exhausted although friendly and even embarrassed by the lack of proper management of the complex. The food was mediocre at best with ZERO LOCAL CUSINE. The worst was when my daughter & Son in Law paid to upgrade my room to Privilege on the 2nd day. The front desk did the paper work my family paid it in full. My granddaughters and I got out of the water - packed our rooms - walked over a 1/4 mile to the front desk to get our arm bands. When we got there they told us they made a mistake and wanted another $635. The Hotel manager was RUDE would not honor the deal we'd already paid and packed up for-she forced us back to our original room. NO HOT WATER on 3 of the 5 days we were there. The bathtub on the roof jets did not work. The drain plug on the tub in the room did not work. The maid was amazing-Luis my daughters 'butler' was kind. El Faro gives The Dominican Republic a very bad reputation. I will never stay at another OCEAN ONE resort again!!!!!!

The hotel is beautiful, the beach is good, the rooms are spacious and with a a great view but the one I stayed needs maintenance, the food is really good and the drinks are top shelve Now the bad, the staff is not enough, the poll areas are dirty of food leftovers, the waiters in the restaurants take forever to attend the table and then they rush you to eat fast because they need the table, one morning we could not eat at the buffet because they lines were imposible, and the majority of the staff needs training

By far one of the worst if not the worst resort experience ever. Poor communication, management and service. Rooms weren’t clean, restaurants weren’t open and we had to bribe a server to find us a table after being told that the restaurant was at full capacity. It was the only one open and that was not communicated to us. We were told all were open. We left same day and refused to give us a refund.
