We flew out with Thomson on the 13th May, when we arrived we were greeted by the TUI Rep and ushered onto the coach, the transfer is 30-40 minutes along the madness of the Dominicans roads. Upon arrival the bellboys go straight for your bags, but expect a tip, the check in was quick and simple, moving to the room...

All open-air pavillions containing the hotel reception area, bars, restaurants, entertainment areas with a backdrop of a beautiful beach. Staff were almost...

Yes the rooms are a little dated but no more so than the rooms at Riu Karamboa in Cape Verde. The hotel and apartments cover a fairly large area but being right on...

Had a great time. Stayed in the Garden property. Room was nice, food was good, along with the service. Nightly shows were entertaining. Pool bar at Bachata was fun. Only negative was having to pay for drinks at the disco, so we never went back after first night.

Food is good and employees are very helpful. I don't have any complaints with the rooms. They are clean on a daily basis. I feel satisfied with everything. You have available massages and the price of these massages are low.
