The hotel staff was great, Ezekiel at check in was awesome. Also we would dine with Elizabeth in the mornings and sometimes for dinner she was also very great!! We had only one bad experience and it was at he Geisha restaurant, the staff was rude. Approaching the restaurant, the staff just stood and looked at us as if we were lost and then I finally spoke and said that we would like to be seated for five and the greeter just looked unhappy and annoyed. I was disappointed with the beach and the sea weed but for the most part we had a blast, food was also great at the steak house!

2nd time there, I must say I am disappointed. Fresh prepared food, however very poorly made meals. Every day for 8 days exactly same food, they just rotate stations. Nothing local to represent Dominican food or Caribian. Menu for on site restaurants has as poor choices as their main restaurant. Entertainment was more than poor, it only last for 1 hour and it end at 10:30 pm on most nights. Great people and service, but resort need a lot of work if they are to get repeat customers.

Will not return. Average food at all restaurants and less than average food if you wanted room service or to eat when restaurants were not open. We were there with a group and out of about 20 people at least half had stomach problems during the trip from the food/water even though we were all careful not to drink or brush our teeth with tap water. Could be due to the pool bars rinsing plastic cups in the sink an re-using them. In addition, the front desk staff works everyone over for tips. Christian at the front desk is a con artist and even after putting us in a inferior room (we paid for Villa Jr. Suite Sea view and could not see anything but trees from our room) yet he handed us an unmarked envelope secretly and said we could give it to him latter with a tip. I found out that this happened to most of our group and the only ones with nice rooms had to go back and forth at check in. Don't like not getting what I pay for and being hustled/coned by staff.
