Just returned from an 8 day stay. I must say that the grounds are beautiful and kept very clean. But what a disappointment to open our villa door to just white sheets on the beds. Ok, thought maybe it wasn't washed yet but never got a bedspread the whole week we stayed. This made an unattractive room. The rooms are very dark and gloomy in need of much updating. My daughter fell down the outside steps due to no lighting at night. But a maintenance man fixed this immediately. The hotel pool was always dirty. The beach pool much cleaner. I also think there was too much nudity for being a family resort. We did not see any activities for 10 years olds. All just for little kids. My daughter was bored the whole time. I talked to many people who began booking tours everyday just for something to do. We went on 2 tours. The Outback Safari was one of the most exciting things we ever did. It is a must! My daughter handed out gifts to the native kids--I know something she'll never forget. If it wasn't for this tour, I would not have been at all satisfied with this vacation. We ate at all the restaurants. The food was okay. Not much for kids to eat--mine lived on the fries at MacPrincess! The alcohol is sooooo watered down. I'm a non drinker, but wanted to this vacation--I would drink one after another--never tasted the rum, nor even got a tinge of a buzz. Even straight the rum tasted like water. I will never go on another all-inclusive after this experience. The staff was not friendly at all. We tipped all the time and still got terrible service. I noticed most (and I mean MOST) of the people never tipped---so save your bucks cause you don't get any better service than a non tipper. Same as with the maids--I left money and a gift everyday. Asked for extra towels--never got them. The beer in the fridge was always spoiled. Never replaced the kinds of soda we would drink. And never got our bedspread!! By the way, they have absolutely no wash clothes there--take your own! I did enjoy the tours we took. Went to a cigar factory--right during a bust! That was cool! Watching how people in the towns drive was really wild! I never saw anything like that in my life. During our trip to Altos De Chavon I had a tarantula run across my arm, then later on darn near stepped on one. Got some nice pictures! A young girl on our tour bus was food poisoned and had to have an emergency vehicle to be sent for her. None of my family got sick but we took Pepto twice a day whether we needed it or not. Several people we met at the resort were sick and bed
ridden their entire vacation. Arriving at the Punta Cana airport for the flight home--every stall in the bathrooms were occupied by people throwing up. If this is the ideal island vaction your looking for--go to Hawaii!!! I would never go back to this resort or to the DR--there's just too many more places out there to visit.
