The overall resort is fine, it's not going to blow your mind but it is more than adequate. I would say that the Punta Cana is one of the lower end resorts within the resort. Obviously the Luxury resorts had a much better vibe but the difference between them was much larger than I expected considering the price difference is... More

Hotel restaurant excellent choices much better than some of the a la cartes offered. Tuesday Gala night offers lobster, langastines king prawns along with roasts, Italian etc. Lots of choice even the fussiest of eaters will find something to eat.

Very few staff speak even minimal English, so simple, reasonable requests were not understood and not followed up on all week. Nightmare reception at the PC airport despite having booked and paid for transportation with the resort ahead of time. No one greeted us and resort did not answer the phone when we called for help. When we finally arrived... More

As with most resorts, room upkeep was sometimes an issue. Each day we never knew if we would get the bar restocked, face towels, etc. Overall the stay was fine. Weather was very humid and we had to dry some clothing using the hairdryer. Even the bedding was damp. Lovely staff though. I recommend not coming during the rainy season... More
