Positive :

but varied buffet with a different theme every night you can eat buffet al, outside in the morning, afternoon and evening (very pleasant, most of the evening always a barbeque al, outside (steak etc ...) we paid for a standard room and we had a junior suite for the same price. beach restaurant (buffet) with a terrace facing the sea fun. cleanliness of the toilets even exceptional site of the beaches, staff circulates on the beach during the very long day for nettoyer.plage ideal for walking, can be reached even at the village of las Terrenas to see two beautiful weeks from January 18 to February 1 j, go back

Negative :

safe not included $ 4 per day mismanagement of towels that make people may have 4 towels to book 2 chairs at the pool and the beach was 2 at the same time therefore lack of chairs and palapas rather long bus ride

I would only note that I spent 5 days at El Portillo and 2 days Levantado. The El Portillo deserves its 4 1/2 * but for Levantado, ildevrait be rated a 4 1/2 instead of a 5 +. My assessment will be for the El Portillo.

Positive :

Cleanliness Staff Choice smiling at the buffet

Negative :

Water sports (too many constraints) too low flow toilets

It was a very pleasant trip, exceptional cleanliness, c is our 10th trip to the south and it was one of the most beau.Belle beach where you can walk km.Eau of the warm sea, not so vague, a little coral in front of hotel opportunity to snorkel and see many kinds of fish, do not bother with the book baigneurs.Doit chairs and palapas especially early in the morning as several endroits.Tres good food, quite varied, the only negative side sometimes a little cold food buffet but plus.Restos a la carte: Italian rather ordinary Gourmet: pretty good, Seafood: Well, Oriental: very well, our favorite! At the buffet, quite varied, very nice outdoor terrace where we have been for all our meals for the week, nice ambiance, good service, etc.The drinks are very good regardless of the bar, very easy access to bars no matter where you are on the vegetation site.Tres beautiful! ! Partoout, partout.Les junior suites are super nice and super choice grandes.Grands excursions.Nous went for a hike in the mountains of quad and the village of El Limon, and not very interesting dangeureux.Nous were 4 couples 35-50 years and we have been very pleased with this trip and would certainly recommend this wonderful site! Location for relaxing, quiet but with enough of those who want animation.Pour swingner and make a big party, it may n not the place to be ça.Nous're not went to see shows, but there was every soir.Nous were leaving the beach between 17h and 19h30 so dinner we went to bed late and then around 11 pm.Rapport quality and price: great! Payes $ 1,006 per person for standard rooms and suites have been juniors.De more we were with Air Canada so no costs us $ 20 to enter and leave the country, reserved seat in the airplane, access to four restaurants a la carte during the week instead of 3.We have had several advantages over traveling with Air Canada.De right 50 lbs per bag, per person instead of 44 lbs with several other airlines.

Positive :

cleanliness of the site, vegetation, beaches, friendly staff, quiet, animation, various excursions

Negative :

buffet a few times colder

Positive :

THAT'S POSITIVE TO SAY ABOUT THIS DESTINATION AND THE HOTEL! HEAT AND SUN WERE TO APPOINTMENT. THE WAY WE BUS PERMITS TO ADMIRE THE LANDSCAPE AND THE LIVES OF DOMINICANS. STAFF VERY WELCOMING AND COURTEOUS. SITE OF REASONABLE SIZE, VERY CLEAN, VEGETATION EXTREMELY lush ANYWHERE ON THE SITE. LOVELY ROOM. THE BEACH IS ANY BEAUTY, WITH LARGE ENOUGH CHAIRS and palapas. CORALS ARE MORE AND NOT HURT IN ANY WAY TO SWIM. YOU CAN WALK LONG EACH SIDE OF THE HOTEL SAFE. PLENTY OF ANIMATION. POOL A LITTLE SMALL BUT DESPITE ALL CORRECT. FOOD & BEVERAGE VARIETY FOR EVERYONE. A VISIT TO WORTH Las Terrenas. DESTINATION WILL BECOME MORE AND MORE PEOPLE TO HIT.

Negative :

I HAVE NO NEGATIVE POINT. IT WOULD BE EXTREMELY DIFFICULT FOR NOT APPRECIATE THE PLACE. WE ARE INCOME delighted with our stay. We will certainly return.

Positive :

We arrived on January 16 after days Lots of rain in Samana us we had good weather the next day, so the sea and the pool were warming each day. Very nice site, very clean everywhere. Standard room large and clean. Site not too big, it's close to everything. Beautiful beach with corals for diving but that does not stop us from swimming beach without shoes because the edge does not exist and a little bit further we easily get around them. Food and very good at all varieée la carte restaurants that buffet. Staff very friendly and helpful. I did not meet staff jaded even though the hotel was full, maybe it depends on our attitude and a tip on the occasion that always helps even if they do not wait after that to give good service. The drinks are very good especially the lobby. The animation is present without being intrusive, we participate if we want without being forced. General atmosphere of the tropics very nice, I would stay here again

Negative :

Lack of chairs at the beach, but it is because of tourists who book their seats early in the morning but did not occupy before the end of the day, it's shocking ... Certein flat Bouffet are sometimes cold. At 1:30 the airport

Positive :

Beautiful beach, great for snorkeling, little waves so super safe with young children. Staff love children and it shows. Evening at 8:30 p.m. mini-disco for the kids (they loved it ...'' facilitator'' especially sugar). Staff very courteous. Very clean places. Long beach to walk out of the complex. Vegetation and the locations are superb. I recommend it but not beyond $ 1,200 and no maximum occupancy of hotel sila promiscuity bother you, like me.

Negative :

The beach is small on the site. L, hotel is popular with Quebec. It is actually very overbooked and a representative of the hotel is walking on the beach to find volunteers to deport to other BP for a few nights. The buffet is too small when, hotel is at full capacity. When it rains .... ben is like partoutailleurs ... little to do. The bus ride is'' tough''. My children have had heartache and me too. Provide gravols and maybe a ziploc in case ....

We received new towels room late in the day seulement.Le bar service very slow and overloaded with hours of entertainment but pointe.Pas animation activities rather juvenile and amateur.

Positive :
