Week from 18 to 25 April 2017.

Positive :

All Restaurants in reservation without board are excellent. No evening we had time waiting. At the buffet breakfast and lunch, there was plenty of choice for everyone. There are always chairs available at the beach and pool. The staff, either for the room, in restaurants, bars or anywhere on the site, is always friendly and ready to meet our needs. It's true that the beach is not very nice, but it takes absolutely nothing to the fun and charm of this hotel. We will definitely return.

Small site, neat to find everything within walking distance. Beautiful beach forms a bay where the water is rather blurs the center, but a little further water becomes clear. There are always chairs available at the beach (old but functional) and around the pool (all new). The food is not very varied but there's something. There is always a variety of fruits and vegetables to make a salad.

Positive :

On December 24, we were treated to a buffet séciale containing lobster and shrimp were excellent. To be well served buffet sit in the section of Jose Augustin is the best server, the hotel would benefit from giving it management staff. The a la carte restaurants are mostly very good except the beach which was quite cold. For good pizza, you go to the buffet dinner at the pizzeria or night.

Negative :

The service at the buffet is really not effective, it had to be patient or be in the right section. It was hard to find fish to snacks to dinner as I would have liked, however I talked one afternoon and the server went by me and looked me was the cook on the grill.

Very good flight with WestJet ... Very nice hotel of medium size, well maintained with beautiful floral arrangements ... great room on 3 rd floor with cathedral ceiling and huge comfortable bed ... tiny and repetitive but still a buffet station paste and pizza buffet ... the disappointing beach, just a few vegetables, overcooked sausage and chopped meatballs ... Restaurants in cards are unlimited and Japanese and Brazilian are delicious ... Servers ( es) buffet and bar are extremely kind ... Journey 2 weeks which was very nice ... definitely stay again.

Positive :

Wonderful pool ... nice big room and cleanliness of the hotel ... Near shopping center and the Playa Dorada beach walking about 15 minutes, nearly a restaurant that serves Quebec poutine and the club sandwich day and evening chic indoor restaurant for a lobster ... (1 tourist prices, but sometimes it's worth it) ... and attentive staff ... more Geos sympatiques speaks French very well ... Good evening shows but get a little redundant ... Excursion catamarant very well and that the island paradise for diving in apnea sublime to observe various fish.

Negative :

the beach is full of seaweed but moving a few meters of water and sand is very fine ... Buffet and repetitive with the same taste EVERY day ... Manques activitée on the site and the beach despite the presence of Geos ... Many beach vendors but not pushy .... No rental bike or motorcycle ... In terms of representing WestJet we have not seen at all and that in 2 weeks !! Never has his office as indicated on the satchel hours, luckily we knew the operation to return ... We bought our excursions on the beach and the Kiosk to Playa Dorada and everything went well and less prices ... N.'hésiter not 'barganer' your prices

Site medium size ... Bel hotel room at the 3 rd floor with ceiling cathédrale..Buffet very repetitive but the Brazilian and Japanese restaurant are good ... beach with lots of seaweed but a few steps to the right water and the beach is beautiful ... Buy your tours on the beach or at the kiosk Playa Dorada Mall at lower cost and highly reliable

Positive :

Beautiful pool ... Cleanliness of the place ... Some good restaurant will board all along the stay ... pretty good evening show ... just 15 minutes from the airport.

Negative :

Beach with lots of seaweed ... Buffet and repetitive ... Little or no activity during the day ... the team is walking on the site they are present but do almost nothing ... no bike or motorbike for rent ... I was traveling with WestJet and during our 14 day stay, we have never seen ... Do the representative was never present at the times indicated in the binder WestJet .... Happy to not have been my 1st trip, I knew the operation back etc.

Nice hotel, good food, decent rooms

Positive :

The hotel was a 4 star, who became a 3 star and a half. It's still a very nice hotel. Like most hotels in Puerto Plata, it's a bit old and the rooms are a little tired (though well maintained). The site is relatively small. There are not so many rooms, so the pools are smaller and there is less variety in the buffet. By cons, everything I ate was really excellent, well seasoned and tasty. At dinner, there is always pizza, and lunch and dinner, there is always a pasta station (the cook has already prepared, but it does to you), a piece of meat and two items on the grill, often a fish and meat. There are also chicken in sauce, rice, at least two kinds of vegetables, several salads, cheese, fruit, desserts, ice cream, etc.. In short, the food was excellent. The beach in Puerto Plata is not the most beautiful, but it's okay anyway.

Negative :

The biggest downside to this hotel is definitely the Dominicans invade the site for the weekend. They often come in groups and disrespectful, so they cry, beyond the people in the queue, etc.. There is also a lack of beach towels. They ask us to report at the end of the day, but if we did not, they whining and do not want to give us another towel the same day. There way around the system, but it's a shame they give us trouble there. For the mini-club, there's really very little activity. If you need a place especially for children, it is not the best ... Despite some drawbacks, I would not hesitate to return to this hotel and recommend it to my friends. But it is on it does not pay too much either, because Puerto Plata is not the most luxurious place (but still better than Cuba).
