Arrival: Jan. 17 to 24 2009 Each couple was greeted personally and taken to the check in counter. Great Service!

Rooms:

We were worried that our room was not going to be what we requested – we had phoned the hotel as our travel agent had booked a different room than what we had requested. Our room was spectacular- ocean view outdoor jacuzzi- lounge chairs- a nespresso maker that we loved so much I have already purchased one.

Restaurants and Bars:

We booked our reservations as soon as we arrived as well as a romantic dinner. We really enjoyed the Chateaubriand at the Steak House as well as our meal at Le Gourmet. The romantic dinner was a great way to spend our last evening there! Breakfast was always great, lots of personal choice cook stations. The room service breakfast was huge~ We spent the majority of our time at the swim up bar- fantastic staff there! and the upper lobby bar. There were lots of places to be in the action or have a romantic drink.

Beach/Pools/Grounds:

The grounds were spotless- the beach was beautiful but the pool was a definite highlight for us. We spent hours sipping our drinks and walking the pool.

Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel:

No tours- we did go to one show the Michael Jackson one- chairs were as comfotable as promised. We visited the Casino once, but preferred to be out in the night air.

Other Comments:

We had checked the weather forecast before we left and it was calling for rain all week. It only rained for about 2 minutes one afternoon. Could not have had better weather. Guest Services were very helpful with any questions we had. We enjoyed this vacation so much that our friends have just booked it for a week to celebrate their anniversary!

Many of the tourists as well as the staff were very outgoing and friendly.

Arrival Check in was prompt and our room was ready for us.

Rooms

The rooms are showing some signs of age (some water stains, chipped paint, etc) but nothing seriously wrong. We didn’t have to pay a deposit on the safe which was nice. The beds were firm, but quite comfortable. There was no clock in the room so you should bring an alarm clock.

Restaurants and Bars

The buffet was not a five star quality, but we always found good stuff to eat. I found the beef a little tough, so I stuck to the seafood or chicken. The pasta bar was also very good. The a-la-carte restaurants were good but could be hard to reserve.

Beach/Pools/Grounds

The pool was great as was the beach. There were staff throughout that were constantly cleaning. The weather was poor throughout our stay and the ocean was red flagged throughout – it was still fun to play in the waves, but no kyaks or boogie boards.

Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel

The animation staff seemed a little hit and miss. They were great when they got an activity going, but didn’t repeat activities often enough. The rock climbing and trapese were fun, but not promoted enough. We took the shuttle into Cabarete and enjoyed our trip. We had been told that the vendors are not as agressive as at Sasoua. Prices and selection were good as the Liquidation store but many vendors have caught on and call out ‘liquidation’ trying to get you into their store. We had food and drinks at the irish pub which was very good and you get to watch the beach where there are lots of kite boards and wind surfers.

Other Comments

Unfortunately, the weather was cloudy and raining most of our week. Being in a resort where many of the tourists as well as the staff were very outgoing and friendly definitely helped make our stay an enjoyable one. No matter where we went there always seemed to be someone happy to visit with us.

* We really liked this hotel

It still needs work to qualify for 4 stars.
