10.0 Excellent
8.8 Great
Pros:I love the place in the moment I was there. Ernesto is an awesome employee and is kind, helpful and really hard worked. Love my suit and the pool
Cons:The only thing I didn't like was that the beach was not that good. But after that everything was perfect.
2.0 Bad
Pros:i did not like it at all, poor service, costumer service is terrible, housekeeping i think they are not making enough money, so that's why they really don't care about their job. i was expecting dominican republic food on the menu. conclusion, I WILL NEVER STAY IN THIS RESORT EVER AGAIN. It is too expensive for what they offer.
6.5 Okay
Cons:The smell in one particular area on the way to pool three. It looked the sewage system needed to be looked at. Pool 3 side walls were not clean. The location and price were very good and I as decided not to use the facilities as much I turned a blind eye on most of the services.
2.0 Bad
Cons:While I was boarding my flight to the Dominican Republic I got a call telling me my reservation was cancelled because the hotel was over booked. I was homeless in a foreign country and it was terrifying. I did eventually get alternate accomadations but it was basically the worst hotel ever.
