Fodor's Review

This resort will dazzle you with its sprawling lobby, its curvaceous pool with a central Jacuzzi encircled by Roman pillars. Of the à la carte restaurants, the Brazilian is the standout, and the Mexican is highly authentic and the buffet showcases really quality food. Guest rooms have a light, breezy, tropical look; the ocean-view junior suites have desks and flat-screen TVs. At night you can watch the entertainment from the garden seating surrounding the wrought-iron gazebo. Close to Puerto Plata, you can have more contact with real Dominican life. Guests from the U.K. and Canada rave about the resort more than statesiders.
