We had been to Cancun dozens of times but never the Dominican. May never go back to Cancun after this trip. Staff, rooms, entertainment, food, beach, pools all 5 star!
Upgrading room to preferred is well worth the expense for access to Chester S in the preferred club lounge alone.
Butler service probably an unnecessary upgrade.
Pablo Picasso in the entertainment team is the glue that keeps everything together throughout the day.
Check out lunch on beach most days. Fresh cooked surprises including catch of the day, tacos, clams, etc .
Food at all restaurants was good to great. Portions small so order all courses. The enforce the need for men over the age of 12 to wear pants in French and Italian restaurant with no exception. If you forget pants you can eat outdoor from both menus just outside those restaurants if you buy a bottle of wine. If you use your $10 coupon you can charge a bottle to your room for $25 and up.
Store expensive. Bring rafts, goggles, and extra sunscreen. Or pay $32 for an extra bottle when you get here :)
There is some excursion and time share selling going on but much less pushy than Mexico . For the most part when you said you weren't interested they backed off. One or two nights per week they have some vendors in to sell jewelry, statues, rum. Stay away from the jewelry people very pushy and manipulative.
From US we came for 8 days Wednesday - Wednesday first week of August through cheap Caribbean deal on spirit airlines. Two preferred rooms for under $6000. If price is right will come back again next year same time without any hesitation.
