A week in paradise

I've been to the dominican twice now, and every time I go somewhere else, I can't help but think of how much further my money would go in the Dominican. For what one would spend in a week on any beach in the US, one can cover flights, hotel, and all the food and drink you can stand in the Dominican. If you're looking to go out and explore the country, these types of resorts are not what you're looking for. However, if you want to sit in the lap of luxury for a week and never have to carry a wallet, you can't do any better. We stayed at the Ambar portion of the hotel (the resort is several hotels over many acres), which gave us access to the entire resort, but then we could always retreat to the adult-only area which was considerably less crowded. The bars are better (top shelf is included), everything is more quiet, and you can still venture over to all the night life whenever you'd like! My only complaint would be that local vendors are VERY pushy, and lay on the guilt if you don't buy. Just learn to say no if you're not looking for what they have. Also, when they give you an asking price, you can usually get the item for 1/10th of what they're asking.

Prices for excursions are often negotiable! Definitely check out the snorkeling on the reef if you get a chance. Accepting the free excursions = 1 hour presentation trying to get you to join a $10k vacation club.

Excellent relaxing getaway

This place was beautiful. The food was good. The pool and beach was so relaxing. The beach went for miles. The help was very friendly. We could use the whole resort and restaurants while the others not in the adult section could use our facilities and restaurants. A lot of the help could not speak English, but it really did not create a problem, because they were so friendly. I would come back here again. The entertainment is good. Must see the Michael Jackson show. Never left the resort. Too nice

We had a great time. Everything was great. We expected the food to be a bit better, but it was still pretty good. Everything else was amazing.

Noisy Area

We enjoyed our room, it was clean. The workers want to clean it every morning starting as early as 8 am which is not relaxing for a vacation. The night life is very noisy and people could be heard loudly up until near 4 am every morning. This was the adults only section, but the adults were quite loud and rude.

Winter Get-Away

This was the perfect place to relax and soak up the sun, whether by the pool or by the sea. There were just enough activities around the pool for some amusement instead of the constant loud music and crazy activities we've seen at other resorts. If we wanted more entertainment, it was just a short shuttle ride to the main complex. Otherwise, we were more than happy to hang out in the tranquility of the gardens, beach, pool, and lounge.

Family de-icing trip

Hotel staff was great. Beach was fantastic. You have to make dinner reservations upon arrival or face long lines later and very few choices on where you want to dine. Dr. Fish trip on boat spa was the best and well worth it. Pool bar a must and overall worth the price

Amazing vacation

My wife and I had a great time at the resort. Great amenities, staff was very friendly and the food was excellent. The Ambar side of the resort has a much older crowd, but since we had access to the other adjoining resorts, we were able to experience fun and quite times based on our moods. The beach is one of the best I have seen. I highly recommend this resort.

The a la carte restaurants are pretty good at the Ambar. See if you can make the reservations before you arrive to get the best times because they get booked fast

Couples Getaway

Hotel average age was 70+ Food was an 8 on scale 1-10 Room was okay, kept clean and mini fridge re-stocked daily. When we ran the air conditioner it leaked and made dripping noises throughout the night which kept waking us up. Also the room had a very musty odor prob from the leaking A/C. Beach was beautiful. They clean the seaweed off it every morning, endless miles of walking! Simply perfect!
