Love this place!
I loved staying here and would definitely consider going back or at least traveling to other Decameron destinations. The service was great and what I loved most was the people working here. They went above and beyond to accommodate my father and I. Yirlene (I don't know the spelling of her name -I apologize) and her staff were incredible in accommodating us as we are vegetarian and needed certain things (protein) during our meals. They never hesitated to help us and made the stay feel like "home". We felt like we were all friends with the staff and I absolutely loved that. The hotel also has a lot of locals staying here which I find to be very nice as the whole point in visiting a country is to know and see their culture. I would have never guessed I would get that in an all inclusive, but I did and I appreciate it. The gym was great and they kept everything every clean. The place was very big but did not feel like it which I liked. The rooms were clean enough and they forgot to replace towels once or twice. I would not recommend using laundry service as they took more then 24 hours to get back to me and I had to call them 5 times to see what was happening. At the end I just wanted my clothes back as I could not go to the gym without them. They should tell people it will be 2 days before you get it back, but that was the only bad thing we experienced.

Stayed here for 3 nights with my family (girls aged 14 & 12). We had 2 connecting rooms, one had 2 large doubles, the other had a King. Very spacious and comfortable rooms. Easy access to multiple pools and a HUGE, great beach with plenty of loungers and cute faux-palm fringe umbrellas. The buffets were great, something for everyone. Fantastic fresh, tropical fruit at every meal, and great salad bar. My younger daughter LOVED the 2 huge pool slides! Not high luxury but definitely a family-friendly, fun place to kick back & relax for a few days. Tip: Bring your own sunscreen as the shop only has a very limited and over-priced selection! Only issue we had was with WiFi: only available for free in the main lobby... if you want it in your room, you have to pay extra for it, per device... And even after we paid, there were issues. However, they sent someone down to help with it right away, and they even started re-doing the cables outside our room the next day! The problem was resolved and they made it up to us by giving us unlimited WiFi in all hotel areas for the remainder of our stay, which was a very nice gesture. All in all, we loved it here and would definitely recommend if you just want some lazy pool / beach days. It wasn't as crowded as i'd feared it might be. Plenty of pool bars to grab those endless rum punches and mojitos, plenty of soft drink options for the non-drinkers amongst us, too. We are taking good memories home, thank you! P.S. It helps to speak some Spanish!

Excellent beach, pools and grounds. If security is a priority, this facility should have keys available for the in room safe. No key was available on check in. Nor was one available the next day. They said that one might be obtained after check out time, but that proved to not be the case. This meant that we had to carry our passports, cash, and documents with us to the beach, pools, restaurants, etc. Most hotels now provide free safe in the room ($3 U.S./ day here) Also, there is only limitted signal strength for WiFi only in the lobbies, which is standard in room almost everywhere nowadays. No clock/alarm/radio, no ice bucket or ice machines, showers that are either too hot or too cold with no regulation. Buffet food was adequate, ala carte restaurants were better but reservations are nearly impossible to get unless you want to eat at 9:45.
