The hotel is very large and divided in two baukomplexe : a close to the beach and the main lobby, another about half a mile from the beach. So, as we have understood this, is the majority of the rooms at the beach for the 'prefered' - guests reserved. We booked the upgrade to a 'prefered room' but not reckoned, since the price for the in our eyes only little extras was too high. We were with the 'garden view' further from the action and had the way to the …  read hotel review

A fantastic, really beautiful area. The staff is extremely friendly and welcoming, a real delight, and their love for their zest for life music backdrop. On order and cleanliness was paid attention to. Really very good. 4.5 star i would give the quality of the room. There is a lot of entertainment in the hotel, but if you consider the times, it is also out of the way (to certain hours there). To go to bed before 10:30 p. m., is not in the rooms, which are close to the action. But soon afterwards it was quiet. The ... food is incredible good and varied and the buffet and the restaurants offer a large variety. You get a lot and could eat the whole day. We have experienced the taste different, time we were very content, even if there were still room for improvement and the taste. Enter in all but very much trouble. read hotel review

There can also people not the booked extra paid! Last night was the worst of all. We had a room next to the club had preffered, until 3 o'clock at night as the hotel, staff renovated hello! What is that?! Whether the 12 noon would be. We have nothing but the front desk called the just more with full noise. Only on the next day the hotel manager informed we, of course, has only apologized. Catastrophe hotel, the linen smelled like old wet putzlapen! Disgusting! read hotel review

The hotel was medium sized, so exactly right. The area was very extensive and in two complex divided. The hauptkomlex is located near the beach. A 2. complex is about 300 meters away from the beach, there is a shuttle. These rooms are frequently with gardenview luguru. The rear complex is new, has a private pool garden and is also very nicely. But you can't just quickly go to the room, if one is at the beach. We stayed in the complex close to the beach. This property is in a u-shape, the more open, built. Within the 'u' was ... the large pool, nestled in a very beautiful garden. Between pool and sea are grill bar, pool bar and restaurant, open air. The hotel is relatively new and quite luxurious. From what we saw and what we also the rep of TUI assured, it is the best hotel on bavaro beach. Cleanliness stings in the eye. Who in the vacation on such a ' resortgefühl', is here exactly correct. During our stay were about 50% americans or canadians, about 20% russians and the remainder were mostly from the german-speaking area (Germany, Austria, Switzerland). We have also nice frenchmen and czechs met. There is no free wi-fi! read hotel review

    Who in Punta Cana land will surely first a beautiful beach. We can assure you. The bavaro beach about 70 kilometer long. I am about 20 kilometer far to walk in southern direction. The beach section in front of the {ent_hotel_20461} is the most beautiful. Beautiful walks along the beach or joggings! Outside of the area was the shopping center ' palmareal' in about 15 minutes walking distance. Beware the prices are too high. Otherwise you are on the desk ordered. We were buggy and the island Saona. The catamaran trip back (about 3h) was beautiful. With the trips necessarily compare the prices.

    We had a double room to even configured for three. It was big enough. Very large king-size beds. Very large shower. Separate toilet. Balcony was very nice and the garden, neighboring hotel ' royal Secrets' location. Quiet! Flat screen tv was broken. But we didn't complained since we had no time to watch television.

  • Service
    5.0

    The service at the hotel is exceptionally good. After arrival at the reception we were quickly 'edit'. The employees' ariel ' could speak german well. After 10 minutes we were in our room. The room cleaning was good. Clogged toilet was repaired immediately. Beware, in the dominican republic, the paper into the pool, but in the bucket thrown. We had no reason to complaints. The service in the buffet and also in the restaurant is very good. You will be personally greeted, quickly with drinks and you felt comfortable. Thanks to modesto, warner, David, Erika and, whose name we do not have noticed. Great service. Now we come to the highlight. This is the entertainment. This is here in hotel sensational but not intrusive. It is amazing what motivation daily attempts, for a fun vacation to make. The whole day there were funny games at the pool and on the beach. Fun and sport from morning until evening. The evening shows are on the beach, in the theater or in the courtyard of the area and are very high standard. A huge disco on the beach - that was it! We have daily in the morning and in the afternoon beach volleyball played and acquaintances with many nations. About the service we need to address the staff at the pool bar and the lobby bar make. Without a tip the service denied from the outset. If you do not on the first day tidy with seem winkst you must die of thirst! This was otherwise not sunday

    The dining was very good. Approximately comparable with a 5 star hotel in the Turkey. The coffee is stronger and us very good tasted. The cake was very good. Pork there were hardly any. Fish, especially grilled dorade, very good. Potatoes very delicious. Also the food at the beach grill was very good. Vegetables everywhere and light. We had no problems. Ice cubes safe, since from mineral water produced. Ice delicious. On the beach there were bananas to sb. despite sport increased.

We had a few in the preferred club deluxe pool view room. They gave us a dark unclean and smelly furnished hole! We complained a broken safe, lamp and the sliding door to the balcony could not be opened! For this repair you needed three hours. The next morning we arrived in our room, because the batteries for the swing were empty! Again an hour wait! After so much complaining they offered us another room. In this room we saw just the somewhat lumpy mattress! Furthermore, we discovered, that the pillows very strongly after sweat smelled! We demanded now everything ... is new in the manager of the preferred club at. The waiting period amounted to this six hour! For dinner were most of the guests (mostly americans) in shorts and flip flops. On the beach for the club you had no peace. This hotel is a true family hotel with very many children and is 98% of americans booked. The water was very dirty (the seaweed). We are of the opinion, the preferred club is not a club of this privilege rating! read hotel review
