I just returned from a week long stay in Puerto Plata at th Amhsa Marina Paradise Beach Resort & Casino.....I got a great bargain for what I paid. I had a great time...met incredible people who I will continue to have as friends. The pool was great, the beach excellent, the staff friendly and provided my girlfriend and me great service. However, the food was HORRIBLE. Let me say that again..HORRIBLE. Don't expect to stay a week and not HAVE TO eat out. Please people do not over pay for this Hotel..maybe this will make them provide better food service. Everyone I met at the resort said the same thing. The food SUCKS!

One more thing, please don't let the damn taxi's overcharge you. Bargain for everything.
I'm a native of D.R. and it made me sick to see how much they were charging tourist.
1 Example....I paid RD120.00 = $4.50 US Dollars for us (2 people) to get from the town of La Isabela about 50 minutes away to Puerto Plata. I saw a sign outside the resort charging $85 US Dollars = RD 2,300.00 Pesos...So please don't just pay what they ask...bargain.

Amhsa Marina has purchased the resort as of Oct 1st, 2007. They have started to extensive renovate the hotel, though are doing it room block by room block.

Expect the quality of this resort to improve greatly.

Previously they only managed the resort and were prone to cost restrictions as imposed by the actual owners.

With them now owning and running this resort I expect it to become one of the top resorts in the DR.

And if you are wondering yes I have stayed there. Spent 1 week in Nov. of 2006 at the resort with my father. He has been a regular customer there for the last 8 years going there at least twice a year. With last year spending 9 weeks out of an 11 week stay in the DR. He has plans to return this Jan 2008 for a full 4 month stay.

So yes I speak from experience.

8 of us just returned from DR casa marina and out of all us none of us would go back there. We found the food to be good, however the service was absolutely horrible. One of us had a bad leg and after requesting a ground floor room for them, we were absolutely denied. This hotel has the WORST service I have ever experienced.
