Just returned from my 3rd trip to my 2nd home (since June). The staff is wonderful as always. We got to venture out to the city this time thanks to the direction of the staff.

This place is top shelf, first class service from everyone, excellent dining and all the drinks and cigars that you want. The beaches are immaculate and the entertainment is like going to Las Vegas. The location is near Puerto Plata and it is next a small Sea World like facility and a Casino.
