Amazing vacation. Have been travelling to Dominican Republic since 2007, staying at different locations, mostly on Playa Dorada in Puerto Plata.|Amazing hotel. Staff was so polite, always smiling and efficient. Check in and out was fast and accurate.|Restaurants and all food there were well presented and nicely cooked, very tasty at all times. Well marked, too, so you knew exactly what you were getting.|The cleaners were constantly visible, cleaning and doing whatever necessary to keep the whole complex shining and neat. The gardeners did a great job, the grounds looked like a million bucks.|The beach has white sands, lots of breezes, and a snack/bar right at hand.|The general manager had a special dinner one night, for return visitors. He was obviously very proud of his resort, and rightly so.|No complaints of any kind, not a single one.|We stayed in the "Beata" building; it was a bit further to walk to the beach daily, but the noise level was almost non-existent.|Try it, you'll love it!|Going back next year, God willing.

Amazing beach and resort! The location is beautiful. The food is good too. The resort itself is perfect. But the management is weird. Waiters and bartenders are very kind and helpful. Sadly, check in and check out process is a nightmare and information is different for every family member we had. We had a premium package and we were supposed to have a late check out. We asked many times during the week and we discovered on the last morning that it wasn’t possible. The cleaning service is also strange, especially when 7 different members come in your room every day.
