Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Very clean resort. Staff is friendly. Food and drinks are great. Lots of activities on site (and excursions out of site). Beach is very nice, not too crowded. My room was great but there were a few things that could have been better: image pixaleted on TV, mini fridge not working (reported it but nobody came). I also did not enjoy the shower without door (water splashed everyhwere) but I guess that is just something I am not used too. I also wished tissues were provided -- caught a cold and had to buy some (or use toilet paper while in room). Not a huge deal I know, just a little annoying. Note that not everyone I know, who was at the resort at the same time as me, had issues with the TV and fridge. On the overall, I had a great week and I would recommend this resort.

I want to highlight Juana Martinez for the her excellent table service... Wow!!! We received her service twice a day and, Juana always had the same service with us. We celebrated the birthday of two people in the group and she made sure that everything was pleasant. Pleasure assured with Juana

I really liked this hotel. The services was perfect. I loved the drinks and food, and the esthetic of the place was very premium even if i was not on the VIP. Animation department: Michel (El Buenon). Was the only animator that integrated my family to all the activities that the hotel did and was very nice with me trying to animate myself to be on the karaoke night. I really loved his services.

This was an amazing experience in the north coast! The hotel room a were very clean and tidy, bed is incredibly comfortable. Food was delicious, I was able to eat at Amicci, excellent food selection, wine was delicious! Good quality food even on the regular buffet. They can do better on the dessert side. Loved the coffee shop which is included on the all inclusive package! And oh... the Staff, they are always in a good mood, in the bar Alberto and on the pool area Marianny made sure we had an amazing time! if there is any incentive or recognition they deserve it! the only thing I did not like was the sellers on the beach... we had to leave in less than 5 minutes because they kept coming. Aside from that... it was an amazing experience, will definitely come back before the year ends!!

Our experience at emotions by Hodelpa Puerto Plata was the best vacation we have had from 26 July 2022 for two weeks . The staff at the hotel were amazing and accommodating, they were kind , funny and always with a big smile on their face willing to help you , from the maids to the entertainment and kitchen staff. Was very pleased with their services my daughter has celiac and they catered to her in very way possible. The head chefMarcos actually bought my daughter gluten free cookies andRAmon the manger of the food restaurant ensured that everything was in order for her.in short in the 2 weeks we were there everyone became like family and we are already trying to plan a return trip. The rooms were very clean. I want to say a big thank you to Orquidea, Roberto, Maria, Signor Ramon, Chef Marcos, Daniel, Sobeida, Carlos, J’ose, Michael, Dawin, Géraldino, Amalia our maid, J’ose (Jimmy), Manuela and Carmen from the café bar,Manël from the beach and the other security guards . The beach was absolutely beautiful water was clean , the only down fall was there were not enough sun shelters which can get really hot in the afternoon would need more of that. A big thank you to the beautiful Alba , the guest service manager. Miss you all hope to see you soon .a big hello to s’ignora Carmen and S’ignora Anna.
