Amazing place! Only downside was being pitched timeshares by aggressive salesmen every time we went to eat breakfast. The pools were fantastic and it was so nice and quiet on the adult-only "royal" side.

Have just returned from our sixth visit to our home away from home. My husband and I picked this resort because it is smaller but with the option to visit the sister resort for more activities if we desired. We enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and the beautiful grounds, but mostly the staff. We are well received at reception and our...

food good, booze adequate, swimming and boating outstanding, biking zero, ambiance great. we avoided the pitch to buy into a timeshare and other headaches by reading a booklet called All Inclusives Vacationing in the Dominican Republic;: Pleasures and Pitfalls. The problems of getting to an from the airport still not resolved.

Overall 8/10 - the food was excellent and there were more than enough choices each day to keep you satisfied. Even the breakfast buffet was quite good. Rooms/decor were average and wi-fi was spotty, unless you were in the Piano Bar or main restaurant. Beachside pool and restaurant were excellent. Only real complaint was with length of time and quality...

The title sums it up, but I must say that the staff really works hard to ensure guest comfort and satisfaction. For example, the hotel has a pillow "menu" and delivered 4 different pillows to our room to accommodate...
