My husband and I went to Punta Cana for a week over New Years. We have travelled a few times to Mexico and have been to St. Lucia as well. We wanted to try somewhere else. Bad decision. Nothing against Air Transat as they did try to go out of their way to make the stay as best as they...

THE RESORT: Is nice. The pools were clean... but the pool bar & lobby bar had a really bad smell, kind of like someone threw up a piña colada. I didn't let it ruin my drinking time. ☺ The grounds were kept neat and the palm trees are beautiful all around. The staff is wonderful & nice (except when they...

We stayed from 12 dec till 19 dec and yes, we spent a great time. The food is not exellent, but is ok. People from the hotel also were ok, friendly. The only inconvenient were the pryces. We bought some stuffs from the hotel's shop and we gave 130 $ for things that normally they costed less than 20 $;...

Our first trip to Punta Cana will be our last. The service, food and accomodation were, at best, adequate. The food made us both ill and I could not even get a decent Gin & Tonic. How hard can that be? Well - even with instruction I did not in the whole week get a drink I could finish. There...

We were in Grand Occidental Dec 26-Jan 2nd this year and about the same time last year. We came back because we were happy with it last year and it made it easier to return to a place where you knew how it all worked and where everything was located and what to expect. We booked through Transat Vacations which...

Do not listen to all of the negative reviews of this resort. Some people will dismiss this resort simply for miniscule reasons (ie they dont have strawberries for breakfast). The service here was amazing and the staff was always willing to go the extra mile for you. Although it is hard to understand them sometimes (hello people this is a...

When booking your trip to the Dominican Republic I would strongly urge you to avoid this resort: think Chernobyl with a twentieth century leper scare. Starting with the most major criticism of the resort is the high illness factor experienced by a number of guests. After only two days at the resort (eating two lackluster meals and some poorly concocted...
