A hotel that has surely been good, but this is no longer the case. I loved my trip but ...

Positive :

Very polite and cheerful staff. Beautiful beach. Our room was ok, but more. Own

Negative :

Glaring lack of chairs on the beach. Lack of drink either the beach or at the pool depending on hours. Not always the same drink from one server to another. Always the same menu at the buffet and à la carte restaurant not very good. : (

Do not go to this hotel. The rooms are pitiful than get their hands on a renovated room. The food well, without style and repetitive. There is the beach and the sea is worth the cost. You pay a hotel a little better.

Negative :

The food is not good and the rooms, mostly unrenovated, slums are yellow and chipped bath, furniture full of holes, safe non-functional, cleanliness is questionable ... etc.

I found enjoyable week because it was sunny and I was with friends but otherwise ilo lacked water activities on the site and around the site, regardless of night bar and some very ordinary food attrayant.La the service very average even if people are nice and smiling but I would not go back there.

Positive :

The beach is clean and magnifique.La buffet food is good especially breakfast, excellent breads. For the a la carte restaurants is good, more typical and pleasant as nice and atmosphère.Personnel poli.Sécuritaire well aménagé.Spectacles Saturday evening and good beach party well apart techno music choice too.

Negative :

At the beach there is a lack of shade because if you arrive after 7, 30 there are more available palapa while in the pool is the reverse one side the sun is sometimes used for activities that which I have not tried One a la carte restaurant by night and the same singer at all soirs.Grosse no gap cappucino machine for the morning especially. Alcoholic beverages limited to local choice, not drink and little digestif.Difficile have good service without gratuity and staff do not speak any French and sometimes little anglais.4 4 people have had problems bedroom, 2 asked changer.Du pay for another room .. glass holey bath room, problem ouverrture door or security cabinet, missing or broken phone, air conditioning that does not stop water flowing from the ceiling, FETC. all block 12 rénové.Aucune supposed to be able to change money at the hotel and shops and no ATM, impractical. too many vendors on the beach.

Exceptional staff. Tr

Positive :

Beautiful beach exceptional Very nice room in the renovated section staff I had a courtesy room to myself after checking out 5 hours without charge. Very nice site and very clean very very clean pool, always cleaned very clear water despite the lack of chlorine used because it does not feel chlorine.

Negative :

The negative is the food. I went to Cuba 10 times in 3 and a half stars and I always ate very well. In this hotel I had trouble finding some things very good.

First I want to say to people who think that there are too many Dominicans that it is quite normal because we are in the Dominican Republic and that if you do not want to see them, go elsewhere. This is a simple but very friendly and makes for simple hotel nice people. We were there from January 9 to January 16, 2014. It was a good experience. I think this is a very good quality / price ratio. If you want more, we have only paid more. There are actually a lot of vendors on the beach but they are very nice people who only earn a living. If you do not want vendors, then go elsewhere but I do love their knowledge. If you have been there, I recommend that Roberto is a very nice seller. The evening entertainment is correct. These are not major productions such as I've seen elsewhere, but it is charming and pleasant. I recommend this place for simple people, people who like people everywhere, young people for whom this is the first trip, the elderly because it is small and people who want a beach, sea, sun good price. This is my sixth trip to the all-inclusive, I saw everything and for the price, it's perfect.

Positive :

The beach is just perfect. If you like long walks, this is the ideal place and is located in the middle Celuisma Playa Dorada. There are small shops on the beach and even a restaurant run by a Québecois. The hotel beach is great and there are chairs profusely even if they are worn out, you can easily get to find comfortable. The buffet has a nice variety of food. The service is impeccable throughout the hotel and people are always willing to help us. The animation is also very nice and young people who run it are exemplary kindness. The hotel is clean as are the rooms. It is very easy to get a reservation in restaurants. There is a small shopping center for souvenirs to 5 minutes. The site is small so we do not have to walk miles to get from one place to another.

Negative :

Restaurants in the cards offer limited choices and the portions are small but as there are 4, you can easily get to our week without problem. Beach chairs are worn but there are many. The juice is very sweet but the buffet can be make fresh in the morning. One of the weaknesses of the worst for me (it's the same everywhere unfortunately) is cursed cigarette everywhere on the beach and close to bars and for evening entertainment. It stinks. Many complain of Dominicans who speak loudly, I find that many Quebecers is a great lack of etiquette when they consume alcohol and it is sometimes annoying. They speak loudly, shout, take up much space and it's tiring.

We went to Celuisma of 3 to 10 January 2014. In general, the hotel is ok for a 3 and a half, but no more. Learning as hotels in the area offer better services for the same price or slightly more expensive, I highly recommend you go elsewhere as the Grand Paradise or Grand Ventana ... It is a complex suitable for tourists more than Dominicans outside tourists. The food is the food of a 3 and a half. If you are looking for a resort with plenty of entertainment, go elsewhere because it is quite redundant as activities, but we did not mind us. In fact, if you pay $ 750 for this hotel is equivalent to the value we give it, but do not pay more than $ 1,000 you will be a little disappointed ...

Positive :

The only positive and very important point is the beach. Having toured Playa Dorada, I can confirm that this is one of the most beautiful stretches of beach (just algae and corals). Soups and pasta are good. The staff is friendly and we see that the "buddys" working hard to set the mood.

Negative :

Beach accessories (chairs and palapas) are very worn, you can easily compare with other complex. The vendors on the beach are very achalants, but it affects all Playa Dorada and not just the hotel. You do ask if you want to buy something for 5 minutes, not to be disturbed we should ignore (what works half the time) or act as if we slept. I tell you in the long run the "No thank you" becomes tiresome. We have run out of hot water 3 times during the week, but she returned the same evening (though just a little "sorry we do our best" from the reception would have given the impression that it is in not care less. By cons, I heard that it was no other hotels were affected. At the beginning of the trip, there were a lot of tourists and Dominicans so the entertainment was only in Spanish. Listed sense of security, the second day (where three quarters of the tourists were the Dominicans) Quebec have fucked their bedroom door (while they were not in the room) and steal their cameras (besides, he did not Rent a safety deposit box). then watching a few doors (we were in building 19), we see that there is some "patchages on doors" as if this was not the first time ... Then when we ask for a key to our room the second, no question was asked to ensure that our room was fine, they only ask for the room number ... a little disturbing (at least our name could be required). The a la carte restaurants are very disappointing after each dinner we went to the buffet, because the portions are small and what is written on the menu is not always what it currently on your plate without be warned (spicy sauce instead cause coconut, brown gravy sauce with red wine instead) and desserts from the buffet (always the same just different shapes).
