Our room was dirty, it was right above the kitchen and smelled bad. We asked for a different room but that room was dirty too. The food was not good at all. The staff was okay though. Would not recommend.

I am a travel agent and I booked this hptel for my clients and I truly regret it. The hotel is abut an hour away from PUJ airport. The hotel does not provide trasportation and I was told that no one at the resort spoke english. My clients were out there to celebrate birthday. They could not even go on any excursions because they all were 1-2 hours away. The hotel was not updated and the are around the hotel was a local city that did not seem safe. My customers were so upset that they could not talk to anyway abut their problems. They ended up canceling their stay after the 1st day and transferring to a different all inclusive resort in a better location. i have now been trying to call the resort for the last 5 days to speak to someone about a refund. We are from Philly and this hotel is similar to a weekend trip in Atlantic City New Jersey. Not made for an island vacation in the carribean.

My check in was supposed to be at 3, I did not receive my room until 5pm. They had me sit in the lobby and wait. The food was disgusting, and the person who Carries the luggage was basically begging for tip. Typically tips are given at the end of each stay not every time they do something for you. The snack bar personal was very rude and I quote “ help the Gringos, she is Dominican she can wait” yes I am Dominican/American but I think we all deserve equal treatment. Bathroom shower was broken, water ran everywhere. Place looked like a studio apartment, trash from previous people where in the cabinets. Stove tops and counter was dusty. My allergies kicked in as soon as I stepped in the room. Cleaning crew is rude and act like they can’t talk. Just plain out ignore you. Only 2 towels per room and you have to leave a deposit for the beach towels. I ended up checking out before check out time. Would only recommend If you really need to make a stop.
