Mini vacation
Wonderful place for a great price. All you can get and drink right on the beach. Rooms are very clean, and a lot of family activities. I will be rebooking for my next trip.

look out for all the "Additional Charges"
there were too many additional charges to access to certain areas. this place just seemed like a money grab even though i already paid for the junior suite.

Noisy and overcrowded
Nice facility but way too overcrowded and noisy. Pounding loud music until 2am. Really ?? I bet 95% of customers were unable to sleep and annoyed. Service was good despite there being way too many guests there.

3 Nights In Puerto Plata
Overall the resort was great, I would recommend it for the price for sure! The beach is beautiful, clean and great for swimming, food and drinks were very good as well. The rooms were also nice and modern however the resort was very understaffed given the time of year and very unorganized. We stayed 3 nights and our room was never cleaned once, both days the housekeeping came to the room at 6pm to clean while we were getting ready for dinner, there was only 1 lady for 2 entire floors of the building (about 24 rooms total) and we were always the last room on the 2nd floor. Service at all the restaurants was very slow, we just grabbed the coffee jugs ourselves at breakfast time instead of waiting. Also the specialty restaurants should implement a system to take names or room numbers to keep track of who is next to get a table. Twice we were jumped in line over Spanish speaking people who had just showed up. Take a name and when a table comes up call out the name, if no one comes forward go to the next name and so on. It doesn't take much effort and will make things run a lot smoother. Just simple things that I feel the resort could improve on to make the experience an amazing one, however they didn't hinder our trip enough to make that big of a deal. Like I said, I still enjoyed the resort and would go back in a heartbeat.You can't beat the price point!

Hodelpa hell not paradise
This is not a 5 star hotel. This is a 2 to 3 Star at most. They have serious plumbing issues. Bathing in room flooded the entire room and downstairs. Management was terrible with handling issues. The bar staf and entertainment staff made the stay more welcoming. The reservation staff were horrible. Pictured look great but it’s all bs. I was very disappointed.
