3rd time not a charm time to give up

Pros: the pool is the only thing.
Cons: Read above almost everything. First off be concerned when someone has a problem or at least fake it
This is my 3rd stay hoping it would get better. Each time worse. This last expierence, ignored everywhere, shower leaked all over the floor, air didn't work, mold. Checked into the room, no soap, 1 towel I thought I was given an occupied room. Internet is terrible and you pay for it. I wouldnt mind if it worked but it was awful. I got no help from the person in the wifi shop who just said " it should work". It was a joke. This followed a recent stay where the room flooded from a leak in pipes although they did give me a new room but it was inconvienant. I guess I should have learned after the second time. I guess I am an idiot. I will be staying next door from now on. One last thing the vacation club sales people just do not know when to quit. Seems like the local people who stayed were treated much better also and considering as I learned locals get a discounted price due to the slow season I think that tells you dont go unless you want misery. I have never written a review before so this should tell you how angry i was.

Nice location, nice pool and nice beach

Pros: Location, nice pool area, nice beach area
Cons: Better service, better attitude to the client.
Location: Nice location, close to the city of Puerto Plata and Sosua. Free Brugal rum factory tour available and free chocolate factory tour available nearby.
Nice location, nice pool and beach area, but poor service. No enough towels available, you have to wait the whole day to get clean towels when returned from laundry. The first day we had only 2 towels for 4 in the room. Also only 2 pillows. That happened because the hotel had a full occupation. Once more of the hotel rooms where emptied more towels where available. Service at the buffet area was poor. The food was removed from the bufffet area at the time to be ended, no matter you where in the line to pick up your food. Employees wanted to end the buffet at the exact time no matter what. There was a daily evening show that was very good. They have 3 restaurants that need reservations to be placed from 8 am to 1 pm. No matter if it was empty, if you call after 1pm they dont give you a possibility to be seatted.

Nice Hotel!

My first time to the Dominican republic it was a fun time!! I read a few reviews about this place was skeptical about booking here, but glad that I did! Only problem I had with this resort is the checking in process was slow. You couldnt check in before 3pm. My room the A/C hardly worked after the 1 day, but worked enough to get by. The food was excellent. The dance bar(nightly entertainment) could of stayed open later 11pm-1am. The music could of been mixed up a bit more and could of had more staff behind the bar. The casino which was a tad off the resort was small but had an amazing nightclub and a fantastic DJ. The club stayed open all night till 5am!

Excellent Resort

My wife and I enjoyed our stay from beginning to end. As soon as we got there we got checked in in about 20 min. ( while we waited a waitress handed out drinks, was a nice touch) We were driven to our room with our luggage and was very happy with our room. Was very clean and the air conditioning was working very good. The only bad complaint for our room was the refrigerator didn't work. Luckily I wouldn't have use it anyways. Our maid (Maria Christina) always cleaned our room when we asked and always had fresh linens for us. The food was really good, you could reserve a restaurant every night or eat at the buffet, which we did both. Food was excellent. Breakfast, lunch and dinner no complaints. Staff was always friendly and attentive. Pool was clean most of the time except for the lazy vacationers leaving their plastic cups close to the edge of the pool when there were trash cans to toss in. Beach was nice , seaweed would wash in threw out the day, so if you want to get in the ocean go in the morning and early afternoon. Entertainment, was ok. They provide tracked music with dancers dancing. Wish they would improve on this category. They need singers, maybe a live band and some comedy. If was improved I would give this resort 5 stars.

Medicore but not bad for price.

Pros: pool minus no wet bar. breakfast very good. Brazilian restaurant very good.
Cons: call off the dogs with the vacation club. Internet needs major changes this is 2016 not 1990
Location: beach was terrible for two days. all the trash washed up on shore and it seemed like a toxic dump. Most resorts have people to rake the beach.
Pool is great but no wet bar. Housekeeping was very good and extremely nice. The front desk is slow and at times is helpful but other times are not very concerned if you have problems with an exception of a few people. Vacation Club people are so annoying and just dont know when to stop harrassing. We stayed three days and could not get reservations in any but one retaurant becuase people book a week out so if you are going for an short stay you dont stand a chance. Internet sucks...you have to pay and that internet still sucks. free lobby interent for 1 hour per day but it is like dial up and forces you to pay or go insane.

Very Satisfied

Pros: Front desk staff excellent
Cons: Just pull in the reigns of the vacation club aggresive sales team a little
Location: Location is good.
I dont usually write reviews but wanted to share a few things. I just recently stayed at the resort and wanted to say how accomidating the staff was. The last night I had a little issue with the air conditioner and a leak that might have been because the sliding door might have been cracked open and I did not notice it because I never used the balcony. I went to the front desk and they were very nice and quickly swapped me out and even went as far as putting me right next to the other people I was with in the next room. Food was great. Pool is great. Nightime activities are fun. I think you get some pretty good bang for your buck here. The only negative is the agressivenss of the vacation club sales people that dont take no for an answer. I owned before with SolMelia and I did not like so I just dont want to do it again. The reality is this happen at every resort so its not limited to here. Its the nature of the beast. I do recommend this resort and will stay again. Thank you Staff !!!

Hotel was fine...atmosphere great

Pros: Housekeeping was very accommodating. Bar staff were friendly. Food was reasonable and a good selection.
Cons: Check in was a bit of a nightmare. About 20 guests checking in at same time...only two working at registration. They were very slow.
Location: Great beach...beach "shopping" only ten minute walk away. Evening shows very basic. Access to excursions was good.
September turns out to be a great time to visit Puerto Plata! Supposed to be the rainy season, but very little rain. The weather was actually quite beautiful. Resorts are not crowded this time of year...no waiting at bars, buffets, or a la cartes. Staff have time to accommodate any extra requests you make, pool is not too crowded, and there is no pressure to get a good place on the beach. Would definitely recommend it!
