My worst experience in a hotel
I have been to many hotels in the Dominican Republic but this was the worst thus far. I ordered bottles of water three times to my room and they never came. I only got them because I asked housekeeping from the villa next to ours. The guy couldn’t believe himself I was waiting for bottled water all day. Also that same day as we were walking back to the room staff was heading there to fumigate because apparently someone had called for mosquitos. I don’t know how they could send someone to fumigate the wrong room and not send bottled water. I thought maybe those were delivered to the wrong room as well. The level of disorganization in this place is unbelievable. The food was not even average. Some of the people in our group had to leave the hotel to find decent food to eat. Check in took hours and at some point they couldn’t find some of the people in our rooms reservations. We were a group of 36 people and they made it impossible to let us make a reservation for any of the Ala carta restaurants so we stuck with the snack bar and buffet for the entire stay. My sister in law and her husband had paid for an upgrade and got a regular room because they didn’t have any other available. I will never come here again nor recommend anyone to stay.

STAY AWAY FROM THIS RESORT!
This hotel was amazing in terms of facilities, but the service was BEYOND MEDIOCRE. The internal transport within the resort hardly ever passes, so often you are stranded walking long distances to/from your hotel room to other places in the resort. The food is basically cruise food served in nice plates, the food was often cold and took a long time to receive. We were with a group of 12 people and everyone complained about the horrible service they received (amongst other guests we encountered during our trip who were dissatisfied with the service). We upgraded to the "level" package (aka VIP), only to find out that it does not include some top shelf drinks and you gotta pay out of pocket for the same. During our stay, our butler service never even bothered to show up or contact us (something that we paid for with the level package). In addition, they lost our clothes that we sent to get laundered and it finally showed up almost 3 days after it was sent, nevertheless they still charged us the full price for the service. The cherry on top, was the last day when the cold water in our whole building was not working, all the water coming out was boiling - overall this is the WORST all-inclusive resort experience I have faced. I complained directly to corporate and filed a report before check-out, only to receive an email telling me that the only thing they could do was to upgrade me to the level if I ever visited the resort again (WHICH I OBVIOUSLY WILL NEVER DO). STAY AWAY!
