Clean rooms, buffet OK but a terrible atmosphere. Tons of kids who fill the (too small) pool, take over all food from the snack bar on the beach and running up the disco at night. Animation fans.

Positive :

House and Buffet

Negative :

Animation. General atmosphere. Strong and unpleasant music.

Positive :

For a 3 star 1/2 I found that the AC was really meaningful. It was really clean! The animation is excellent, the Dominicans are just too fun and endearing. The great staff too! I was served like a queen! The beach was beautiful! I really love yours and I ay back by the end of the summer!

Negative :

As for food, usually in the buffet was edible, but for a la carte restaurants I give a big 0!

Positive :

Jr beautiful suite, clean, do not feel the humidity as 2'étage, comfortable bed, clean sheet. The food has improved some very jour.Personnel courtois.Animation smiling, especially Damaris and Sexy Mosquito, good dancers and entertainers . A la carte restaurants very good and visited more often than 2 times a week when the rest places.Plage nice and wide, making it somewhat long walk long sécuritaire.Chaises always available except vend.sam.dim. because the hotel is complete with the Spanish Republicans, Haitians or families facilitators. Holidays from February 1 to 15 2 days rain, 2jour dark, and the rest of that soleil.Des great vacation.

Negative :

Choice of breakfasts limités.Porte patio that barred pas.Débarbouillettes not very often in the panier.Le safety deposit box was not free as stated in the advertisement of the Internet. Visitors to three days were always favored, even as we were out for 2 weeks. The animation in general was more amateur and professional, except for show danse.Pas great place to hide from the rain, the small bar or the edge of the buffet, and our range of chambre.Serviettes regularly changed the first 4 days but after we had a 2-3 jours.Les the vendors 'VIVA' My Company, are always on the lookout for a new client, a waste of time and soleil.Les beach vendors were very vague présent.Les has strong sea

Positive :

a small site but well maintained, clean, great beach with lots of service.Belle vagues.Chaise beach in large quantities if you love the beach and enjoy the sun at the pool because there are plenty of vegetation, much of ombre.Cette a place to rest, there is always a place with chairs and tables for a quiet drink and relaxer.L hotel is not directly on the beach there is a private path to get there (5 minutes walk away). The restaurant and beach bar is great and the service is super.Le buffet is very adequate for a 3 * vary each day and warm. We make three trips each winter and it was the first time with a 3 * and we were pleasantly surpris.La food of the republic is not cuba. The Asian is excelent.Il are many vendor on the beach, speaks mainly French then told them that you want peace and it is the word, you will not tranquille.Ne paid more than $ 800 is a 3 * but if you have the temperature you want will not be disappointed

Negative :

no not a lot of entertainment but we were there we rested.

Positive :

Really well as hotel, courteous staff. We always had enough of the beach chair and a pool. Every day there had some activities, petanque, dance classes, volleyball or pool .. it was not throughout the day but at least we occupied ca. For rooms, this was clean, always hot water. The buffet has a lot more, we were 8 people, and only two of us we love less. There is a small shopping center at 5 minutes and a flea market on the beach. In short, we had a lovely trip. I recommend this hotel to people who want to relax (which do not have to party every night) or to make beautiful excursions (outback safari ($ $) or one that we ammene in falling, forget lament jai the name) I will return to this hotel again!

Negative :

Certainly there are some negative side, but nothing to make us regret our journey, we must not forget that we are in a country different from ours. The alarm clock was not functioning well, we had to go to the reception, the hair dryer was operating on it but we ask one another. We had one day of rain for 2 weeks .. nor had he not much activity during this time dorganiser but we took the opportunity to rest. We would love that there is a little more quebecois in hotel .. the atmosphere would have been different especially since most of us spoke only french.
