The property, although modern in design and not generally my personal taste for an island venue, was beautiful. The beds were comfortable, the hotel rooms beautifully designed and very big. The variety of food was tremendous, and the service from the restaurants to the servers who brought us drinks during the evening entertainment and the pool were extremely attentive. The stretch of beach the hotel is on is beautiful. The evening entertainment at Bavaro was more modern and Americanized than I'd like, but they were well done. We went to a neighboring RIU hotel one night for entertainment and enjoyed the "Africa" show, what I'd call more traditional island entertainment. Although our group of 10 only spoke English, I didn't find language to be an issue; the staff that needed to speak more fluently in English based on their position, could do so. All in all it was a fabulous trip!
