    Very good properties, stayed in 2 different rooms, very specious and we'll equipped. Minor issues like back door didn't close properly, but overall great stay. It is very quiet, if that is what you are after is perfect. Breakfast is good and staff are nice, it does take a while, you have to wait.

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

    The property is beautiful, quiet, with a large room and a high ceiling. Gorgeous views. Maria, the front desk attendant was incredibly helpful. The drawback about this place is how far it is from the true center of Punta Cana. It's about 30 minutes away and a taxi to downtown will cost $40 one way. We decided to get a rental car for $70 instead since it has free parking. A few minor things that were bothersome included the fact that there's no phone in the room, the shower did not drain properly, the lock box did not work, the power outlets by the bed did not work.
