The hotel is a relatively large area. The rooms were big enough the cleaning and cleanliness was also reasonable, however often only in the late afternoon the room was cleaned. Wireless internet costs 3-4 Euro for 30 minutes! Weekend rates are many locals in the area …  read hotel review

We had a nice bungalow, unfortunately, we got for so much money a bit more expected. Were now already for the 8'. Time in the dom. Rep but the cleaning ladies and the amenities were not the best. Room if at all were in the evening at 17:30 clock cleaned. Food was regularly repeated. Quality nothing special for example no fresh yogurt, but in plastic cups. Tip: everything in las galeras do.

    The animation team is what makes this resort. They work hard from early in the morning to late at night in the disco. Plus they put on a different show every night. They are wonderful, sweet and warm people and part of the reason we return. A special thanks to Pinky, Mikiki, Lima, Olga, Yessi, Yonathan, Bombi, Francesco, Daniel, Andujar, Alexis....just wonderful people....thank you so much!!

    The people at this resort are truly wonderful. Having been there in February, May and October....we have been exposed to the resort at busier and quiet times. Each time the staff were all excellent from the front desk, wait staff and bartenders....Samuel Vasquez the hotel manager always makes sure we are well taken care of.

  • Location
    6.0

    Located approx 2 hours from the airport in Samana, the drive is lovely and gives you a wonderful picture of the way people live. We always get a couple of drinks at the aiport and enjoy the scenic drive to the hotel. Sit in the right hand side of the bus to get a wonderful view of the ocean. The hotel is not to large...its in a bay which provides a lovely view. Not to mention the horses that run wild next to the resort. So beautiful

  • Gastronomy
    6.0

    There is a lot of options despite what I have read. It is not gourmet in any way but we have never gotten sick in three visits and there was always plent of options to choose from.

The hotel was a very calm and peaceful place to stay. The rooms are pretty big and always clean. The beach is relativly big but it is very clean. There are no waves which makes it better for relaxing in the water. It is different shades of blue so pictures come out nice. The buffet has a variety of different foods that are good. In the end it was a very good hotel and we will definitely go back! A big thanks to Samuel V., a pleasant and fun man to talk to, who made our stay extra fun :P read hotel review

    There were always many things to do on the resort. Catermaran, snorkeling, swimming, volleyball, spanish lessons. You name it they probably have it. We really enjoyed the water aerobics. It was a great way to start off the morning.

  • Location

    Quite a trek to the main city Santa Domingo, but Las Galars was a 10 minute walk from the hotel via beach. The locals may seem to be over whelming at first but they just want you to look in there shops, even if its for 2 minutes.

    Room was bright, clean and well cared for. The maids did a very good job in maintaining fresh clean sheets and towels. The towels often did arrive after 830pm which was a tad bit bizarre.

    The service was incredible. Samuel, Lima, Raylin, Ariel and Julio made our stay unforgettable. They were always very polite and friendly. If we had an issue Samuel and Julio would solve it very quickly. Never had an issue with rude staff. Best service I have experienced on a resort.

The hotel is located in a beautiful secluded area. An hour and half approx from the airport in a comfortable air conditioned bus made the treck seem short. The resort is peaceful and relaxing. I cant say enough about how wonderful the Domincan people are and they work exceptionally hard long hours to make sure you have a great vacation. I would definitely return....... read hotel review

    The resort is located just near a small quaint town. The beach is not large but perfect for floating and cooling off. The grounds are well kept and the lake area beautiful for watching the turtles and fish. Lots of shade or sun....

    Great variety of food....The outdoor dinners were dinner and the atmosphere fantastic. The pool dinner was a special treat on our last night. Candle light and a delicous buffet.....

I found this resort to be a perfect size. With only 420 rooms, you're not over crowded with people. The resort was very clean. Rooms were also very clean. The food was excellent. So many choices at the buffet. Guestes ranged from people in their 20's to 80's. There were also some families with small children. read hotel review

    The staff were extremely friendly. Juan from the Sports Bar always had a smile and he was very pleasant. Yessi at the towel exchange was always very chatty and polite. She is also a great entertainer.

    The room was a good size for the both of us. Even my 3 sons were fine with the size of the room. (They were all 3 in the same room)

    There is entertainment every night. The staff put on a great show of dancing. They work very hard. My hat off to all of the staff. The beach was beautiful. It was kept clean. Loved the Palm trees, they were great for shade. There are 3 beautiful pools too. We didn't use the pools, we chose to be at the beach.

    From our room the beach was approx. 3 min walk. I am not a shopper so we didn't venture off the resort to go shopping. There is a local market. The Gift shop on the resort was sufficient for my shopping. There are a few Excursions to choose from. You can go horseback riding to a beautiful waterfall, a boat ride to a island.....
