The resort had every activity you could imagine. The tennis courts we impecible the pools spotless. There were two pools, the quiet area, with an attached swim up bar. This was by far the favourite. As well as a shallow activity pool. The beach was windy but clean, safe and great for swimming, snorkling, catamarans, boogy boarding and just hanging out.
Our room was amazing and clean, and the service throughout the resort was 5 star. We went during a slow period and found out later people asked for upgraded suites and they got them just for asking.
We had great fun at the casino but be aware. If you play in anything but us$ you will only win in Dominican pesos and there is no exchanging them back. We won a bit and had to use it for soveniers. At the casino there is black jack, roulette, slots and caribean poker. We were disappointed that they didn''t have the craps table going. They said it was too slow.
If I had to choose a disappointing aspect I think it would be the entertainment they provided at night. It was a far cry from other resorts I have visited and did not necessarily keep us captivated.
If you''re looking to sink into a great, relaxing couples getaway this is the one.
One other hint, we picked this trip on a last minute club and got at least 25% off the going rate. If your going away during a slow period look one of these clubs up they are worth it.
To sum up this spectacular experience so you know how great it was just imagine the tips are included but we could not help but tip everyone who came to our service. It was just that great!
