We returned from this resort on Jan. 2nd. It was great value for the money. The food was great, the accomodations were good, the service was exceptional and the weather was hot every day. Got a short 5 min. shower (no more than 5 minutes) most evenings about 10 p.m. but it not a problem. Punta Cana is an isolated area but there were several other resorts within walking distance on the beach. The resort had a daily program for children. It had first class entertainment for adults every evening plus a disco for late evening enjoyment. It was a wonderful relaxing holiday. I could easily recommend this resort. I can easily say that this holiday beats the minus 52 degee celcius temperature that we are experiencing in Manitoba right now. Happy holidays.
