Super hotel the long drive was well worth it - = but i have to say there will be a break and one sees quite free dom. Repair. Drive about 3 hours. ( would the strain at any time again on myself) the staff for the room was as the holy spirit never saw them, but always something as. Our bed was always made no matter how often and when we were in the room. I have never experienced something like that - = super. Unfortunately, there was a small negative point. The first 2 days was the staff at ... the snack bar in the lobby and super, one only the more you don't tip even more complicated was the service. So Dollar pack or drinks yourself - = everything else great So about 1 week before the departure we were made an offer, because the hotel overbooked. On the Bacardi Insel is a hotel of the same chain (5 star plus) and in which we could 2 days before takeoff free book. Have you won't regret it a dream. I can only say.' Welcome in paradise' read hotel review

The hotel is very nice and the view is fantastic, direct view of the barccadinsel. The staff was very friendly and the waiters in the restaurant already knew on 2. day if you want something to drink wishes (we were with 6 people). The beach is small, but very nice, it was 2 times a day they cleaned and you always found enough pool chairs. But it must, the hotel is only 18 years, but the beaches in the cathedral. Repair. Are all publicly. This means local were always on the beach and therefore also children (especially on the weekend) ..., which also sometimes very pushy. After we but the tour guide said had boosted paid attention, that the guests in peace left. Excursions can you good at Martin book directly on the beach or at Manfred kellermann in the city, it is an advantage, if you have on its homepage look around already to know, what he so and so he also time for you has. We had luck with our spontaneous visit to his office and could with him the trip in the national park and it was terrific, especially the location to lunch. read hotel review

We were in the time from 22-11-2013 until 06-12-2013. We ended up in Puerto Plata. The sammeltransfer to the hotel amounts to 3.5 hours. In the hotel we were very friendly welcomed. The rooms are for 2 weeks-stay roomy enough. We were anyway only at night in the room. During the day, we were on one of the two bays were. One of the two bays is on the state samaná distance. So on the weekend the locals on the beach, but was very nice. But there is no long sandy beach be. This when we took a day ... trip to the Playa rincon receive. The beach can over a bridge on the two offshore islands go. Unfortunately, they nothing and the beaches were dirty. Although we also have access to the three à-la-carte restaurants had, we were mostly in the buffet restaurant. The selection was huge. We can recommend this hotel and will certainly not the first and the last time i go there have been. read hotel review
