First Class All The Way!

The hotel and staff were amazing and met our every needs. It was first class all the way! I've been to all-inclusives before but they never included the mini bar, 24 hour room service and a butler. The staff was so friendly and always greeted us with a smile and hello. They have 5 restaurants that you can make reservations when you arrive with your butler or concierge. Make sure the men bring pants, shirts and shoes for dinner because it isn't stated on the website. One couple we met didn't bring pants but the hotel bought him a pair and he had to wear them every night. The main restaurant has the best buffet ever with everything you can imagine. We always went after our reservations if one of us didn't care for what we ordered or wanted extra desserts. We liked all the restaurants, except the Italian one. Every time I had an issue with one of my excursions, they would help me out with the communications. Make sure you bring plenty of tip money because minimum wage is only $2 per hour and you will definitely want to show your gratitude. We found the best shopping deals with the local shops on the beach. The only problem is that they are very high pressure. You can go to the mall for free at 9:45am every morning and they pick you up after 1 hour and 45 minutes. If you don't get your 3 stamp validation, it will cost you $5 person. Make sure you ask for coupons from the concierge to get discounts on the spa services, which are wonderful.

First All Inclusive Experience

Pros: Excellent food and entertainment.
Cons: More night life.
Location: Coco Bongo nightclub nearby was a blast! We really enjoyed it!
We had a wonderful stay at this resort. It was our first time at an all inclusive. The food was excellent, the room beautiful and the resort exceptional. It was very quiet and not a lot of night life, but still fun. Entertainment in the theater was fabulous! I would highly recommend for a romantic get away.

Rejuvenating, Relaxing, Romantic

Pros: Fitness classes, high quality amenities and room furnishings, pool cabanas, friendly service, personalized butler made our dinner reservations
Cons: Clearer guidance on the daily activities list as to locations of events at either the Bavaro or the main hotel would be helfpul - had to often ask
Location: We needed to "crash" for a few days, so we didn't need to venture beyond the resort; plenty to do on property.
Top notch experience in an all-adult, all-inclusive resort without crowds and noise. Friendly service, good spa, fitness centers at both the Grand Bavaro and the main resort, variety of restaurants with good food. Swim up bar in the pool was great and popular. Never felt like we were part of a "herd", which allowed for as much alone time as we wanted. Took advantage of fitness classes via a quick golf cart ride to the main resort, but also used the smaller gym at the Grand Bavaro. Massage at the spa was good and reasonably priced. Enjoyed the 1970's music show at the theater one night. Took nice long walks on the beach. The room, with large balcony, was clean, large and of high quality.

Our first time Punta Cana

Pros: Friendliest staff members. Very clean public areas. Plenty of comfortable lounge chairs and sun beds to relax on and enjoy the bar service. Top shelf
Cons: Dissemination of Information could be improved. Tell me of all that is available to me during my stay I shouldn't have to sit in my room to research w
Location: The location is great, beautiful beach and fine sand. Plenty of water sports available.
Great getaway! Super friendly people and beautiful hotel grounds. Always great food available with exceptional service. Don't see what you want? Just ask they will get it for you. No need to leave the hotel. We were there in early June beginning of the week and it was seemingly half empty. Never felt crowded that's for sure. Mostly middle aged couples. No drunk twenty year olds.

Beautiful hotel and grounds

It is a beautiful hotel with perfect grounds and size for a couples retreat. We went for our 33rd wedding anniversary and thought it was serene, quiet, and elegant. We prefer smaller resorts with excellent service. We found the service lacking in key areas but the facility pools, lobby, room, and proximity on the beach was incomparable to other all inclusive a we have visited!
