Renovation and modernisierungsbedürftiges hotel in a great beach location. Bathroom and rooms are absolutely new to furnish. Cleanliness and size of the rooms was ok. The staff in the restaurant and at the bars is very friendly. The front desk staff seemed however often overtaxed, even with the english language. The facilities on the beach and the beautiful garden are to mention. The quality of the drinks and especially the cocktails are very under the 'all-inclusive philosophy'. Particularly to praise were the à-la-carte restaurants, which is a pleasant change to the kantinenartigen hauptreaturant yuca are; especially the idyllic, directly on ... the beach, the Viva Café/restaurant!

Beautiful caribbean beach holiday!

Firstly, i the complaints about the missing german knowledge did not understand: i am leaving in a foreign country and should but whose language appropriate (at least basiswörter ) and not vice versa, why does everyone german, that the whole world is speak german, only, because we a little holiday? With english one comes there well. Now to the hotel: we had a junior suite in the palace, and i believe, that it is a simple superior double room was. This was well equipped and it was cleaned every day and the towels were changed! The food in the buffet ... was varied, plentiful and delicious. The various restaurants, in which the guest service reserve a table had, we didn't like it. But there is also a pizzeria, which 19 hours -7 a. m. delicious pizza served. The entertainment i personally thought was good and the staff very nice. The beach was clean and there were always enough beach chairs. The sea was terrific and really turquoise. The sport possibilities were enormous, one could everything use free of charge (kayak, catamaran, tennis court, archery etc.). We stayed there for christmas and the buffet on christmas eve was excellent, a huge selection of italian antipasti there is not even in a sternrestaurant! By the way: a part of the plant is under the italian management, therefore the high number of italian guests, but didn't bother us at all, the americans and canadians penetranter. Accordingly gave it there at each bar a good italian coffee maker with excellent coffee. Even the milk for the Cappuccino was from parmalat. The juices were either aufgelöstes fruchtpulver or syrup, but there were also Cola,Fanta etc. and the breakfast freshly squeezed juices for example pineapple, tomatoes and watermelon. The cocktails were ok, very strong mixture, but a huge selection. Now the whole around: if you left the hotel area, you must be prepared, from any traders being approached, but as soon as you all back has, they let you in peace. Now Andy, the some already in some reviews mentioned: we have a tour to Saona with him and were bitterly disappointed. First is Andy totally arrogant and told the blue from the sky, so that one with him bay. We had a horrible day trip with thousands of other tourists on the island. We have also 60 Euro per p. Paid, which 50 people 3000 Euro power, the earn some not once in a year. The speedboat ride was terrible, the food on the island really disgusting and we were not alone there (as we are actually at the booked vip tour promised). This tour you had to then truly with the cheap packaged rum nice drink and not even the worked. Since i could only say: who Saona want to see, it should be expected, that a thousand other tourists also on the island of active and the constantly from any hawkers or local spoken! A overpriced massage want to turn (50 Dollar). There is nothing with bounty or Bacardi Island. The small fishing village of bayahibe is definitely no trip worth, there's nothing to see and dealers only, the a hassle. We were La Romana recommended, but we were not there. Wi-fi is available in the reception area, but is more bad than right, for whats apartment it was sufficient. We stayed at casa mundo, a gift shop next to andys excursion office, a sim card for 5 Dollar and other 4 Dollar 700 megabyte internet for 7 days bought, which worked very well. In the hotel one for 25 hours internet 15 Dollar have! At casa mundo you buy souvenirs and not from the employees or hassled. You can even bargain a bit. All in all a good resort, which concerns recommend. read hotel review

The hotel is located on one of the most beautiful beach sections in dominicus. It is very clean and the general in good condition. Wi-fi is available in the lobby, but very slowly, if at all.

    At the service there was nothing to complain about. Most of the staff are friendly and personable. Sometimes somewhat clumsy, but always polite. Exception here is the reception. Here i had the impression, that the guests only being fobbed off, in the hope, that you not stay here again. For extra requests were always different statements. Finally feel the guest care program was good. We personally happened. The only reason why the bad grade for that about.

    Right on the beach. Hotel - Punta Cana International Airport 45-60 minutes. By the new highway very pleasant. Shopping, i would not recommend, since except for rum, cigars or cigarettes nothing decent buy (mostly everything action). Especially at each loading terrible pushy ' sellers' troubled. Beach and sea is beautiful. Area was very clean and beautifully landscaped.

    Shady spots are sufficiently available. The beach chairs were in order. There were showers on the beach. The toilets on the beach should often be cleaned. The entertainment this year was particularly noisy. The entertainers yelled into your microphone, that one meant, they would be next to the beach chair is possible. Formerly was the palace of the quiet and the beach somewhat temperamentvollere. So slowly but surely is all one. I believe, that a group called Village bravo either the hotel provides, or involved. Then will this beautiful area Club Hotel where you from morning until evening entertained, is.

    The food, whether in the buffets or a la carts restaurants it gives to expose to nothing. The meals were tasty and of good quality. The quality of the cocktails was always poor. It also differently goes, a employee shown. He took fresh ingredients (not from plastikkanistern ) mixed these and the score was excellent. In the last week of our vacation the atmosphere at la yuca (buffet restaurant) significantly. The vip area in the lower area was enlarged, but in the normal area the tables close together, so that the waiters but also the guests with its full plates difficulties had, between this cloud of tables and chairs get through. To top it was still a barrier locked, so that one only in one place to his table (see photos). The mist has ordered, is never with a plate by the tables left. Approached it was called, distributed from above. Also it is a better marking not possible.

    Our room was large enough for two. But which is many more important, it was always spotlessly clean. The cleaning ladies are doing a very good job. Here could the executives tutoring instruction in customer service to give leave. The ladies of the putzgeschwaders i would like to repeat my sincere thanks.

    We had a superior room with Ocean View. It was a bit dated and not in a perfect condition. With the small faults you just have to ignoer. If you cannot, should 4 star in Germany book. We had problems with the wasserrablauf in the bath tub and with the safe battery. After we told the reception had, we were immediately friendly helped immediately and the deficiencies rectified or repaired. But the rooms were clean and were cleaned daily. It also included always a freshly made bed was available and clean towels. The size is completely sufficient. Also, when i am because with such a wonderful setting in the room? But only to change the clothes and to sleep. There was the guests got angry, that there was only one german channels. We needed no. At the most to see, how cold it in the leftover is.

    The entertainment was very italian, what however not bad we found, since we didn't to the guests include the morning already around 9 hours a polonaise on the beach,. Otherwise was entertainment - and unterhaltungstechnisch, as far as we can tell, much was offered. The couches are simply, but comfortably. Towels you get two pieces at the pool or beach, you always in demand for fresh towels can be exchanged. With the beautiful beach we didn't use the pool.

    In addition to the main restaurant (buffet) there were various à la carte restaurants to 'all-inclusive package' include, but need to be reserved. We stayed at the bambu (asian) and in the Viva Café, in just under a draped (open to the sides) directly on the sea sits (a dream). The food and the service was both restaurants very good. There is a mexican and italian restaurant. In the main restaurant (yuca) were also theme nights, in which both local dishes (mexican, asian, italian, mixed, etc... ). The selection of food was varied. Even if some repeated the choice was so large, that you always something else could try. Culinary boredom came with us at least not on. There was fish, beef, pork, chicken... So, something for everyone. For the small hunger there was at the pool bar of snack (pizza, burgers, fries, etc.). We were also without tips friendly and quickly served. Nevertheless, we have now and again tip. Dirty or not used dishes were immediately cleared away (almost too fast).

    The staff are very nice. All added, were friendly and had good mood. We did not have the feeling, that we owe to the italian guests were disadvantaged.. And even if no spoke german, it is, after all, the Karibik (latin america). We arrived with english to. And why not a few phrases learn spanish? And even, if you can't speak it, it was with hands and feet also. The staff gave every effort to understand you. Otherwise, the next holiday in Germany book, with currywurst and large fernsehsenderauswahl. A doctor we needed but luckily not, in the area but there is a medical center and outside just in the area there was a pharmacy.

    The drive from the airport took over the new motorway only a quarter of an hour, but due to the impressions as in the flight had passed. If you leave the hotel you are immediately in the center and the shops on the nose. Necessary but it is not, as the area was a lot of stores and shopping has to offer. Since the hotel area was very extensive, you can also good, only there and go for a stroll. We have only one trip to the Island of Saona made, highly recommend (paradise). In and outside of the hotel but several tours and trips are offered. The 'all inclusive' is at the beach rental of kayaks, catamarans, surfboards, etc. The staff there the matter well in the grasp and are very attentive.
