Location directly by the beach from the arena gorda, wifi free of charge also in the room and at the beach. Generally, i can only the comparison of several years back.

After a very busy holiday was only recovery purely announced. This is a success. However, the hotel is a little in the ' years' old. Against mold fungi (in the room) must you are not allergic to be. Healthy they are certainly not. The beach is nice, but it bordered hotel after hotel. It hiking countless people, something peace and less people you will find only after many kilometres. But like i said, relaxation you will find, the staff is very friendly and helpful, the nightly noise holds itself within limits, since the windows well soundproofed. Who without organisation wants ... to undertake trips, the Dominican Republic was really nice and culturally interesting, should perhaps not necessarily this part of the island. Bewertung lesen

We felt very comfortable. The whole area made a good impression. The one-hour evening entertainment was good and was not once in the 2 weeks. It was by external actors decorated. The structure of the guests was okay. Hardly any russians and if, decent behavior. At the beach one was palm shaded. Bewertung lesen

    The usual sports on offer : darts, Volleyball, water aerobics, Dancing, Cushions of the beach chairs were already very worn out, (if any were available, since some guests the cushions taken on the beach) Reservations with towels were despite ban, on the agenda.

  • Service

    Very good service at the front desk (friendly, helpful, german speaking). Daily, thorough room cleaning, in the evening, the bed turned down and the curtains pulled. Please note: all valuables in the safety deposit box. My silver necklace which i in the bathroom had left was stolen. At the front desk was my complaint received, but this has my chain not returned. Friendliness of the waiter depends on their mood from. The collecting several tables (we were a large group) was in the first week of our holiday, no problem. After a few days it was the waiters not too much work. This should be a 5 star hotel.

The hotel is, in my opinion the best value of all assets in Riu-complex. Despite its 1200 beds, it looks quite small and we didn't have any long paths. Even if it is full, one can always find a spot both in the restaurant and also on the beach. Bewertung lesen

    Next to the main restaurant (breakfast and dinner) and the beach restaurant (lunch), there were several specialty restaurants. Everywhere there were more than generous food and all beverages, which one would like. If you want to complain about something, then maybe, that nearly a little too much on the international tourists to the detriment of local food.

    The hotel is not Club Hotel, accordingly, there are during the day also only one very soft entertainment. Still tried the animation team do their utmost, by stretching to dance up to Volleyball and pool games. Both at the beach and at the pool there were enough pool chairs, also in the shade. A disco does not have the hotel, but there is a shuttle bus, the all 10 minutes to the closest club runs. The quality of the evening shows is enormous with high-quality choreography, akrobatischen inserts and a large amount of costumes.

    The service was great! The staff is so friendly, helpful, attentive, courteous and just just lovely. After a few days are all habits known, and at the bar, the drinks already there, before you even arrived. Very many spoke the most important words in german and/or english, and if you even a few words of spanish, then radiate a right to.

    The rooms are huge (two queen size beds, a through steps separate living room) and so meticulously kept very clean, as the climate is possible. During the two weeks of my stay, even the craftsmen at, around the mould, when the air conditioning obligatory in the bathroom is, to remove and everything again nice white to painters - mind you without, that i complained could, but alone! And the minibar is a dream.
