Hodelpa hell not paradise
This is not a 5 star hotel. This is a 2 to 3 Star at most. They have serious plumbing issues. Bathing in room flooded the entire room and downstairs. Management was terrible with handling issues. The bar staf and entertainment staff made the stay more welcoming. The reservation staff were horrible. Pictured look great but it’s all bs. I was very disappointed.

Small all-inclusive beach resort in Puerto Plata
Small and affordable all-inclusive property, with a good beach, several swimming pools, spa (extra cost), great food (several restaurants, including buffet and a la carte) and excellent service. There is also a theater for nightly shows, a disco and several bars.

Nice facilities, but bad staff service.
The hotel has lots of good amenities, the food, the location and the facilities have lots of potential to become a 4 to 5 star hotel. Unfortunately, it lacks good service from the staff, specially at the front desk when checking in, and then throut the resort stuff is just not professional, they lack training and they are always talking to eachother very loudly...and using bad vocabulary in front of the guest, for people that are bilingual as me it became very uncomfortable since they didn't have common sense or any service etiquette.

Not bad
Worth your money if go there on discount. It is VERY new - few months only. In fact decoration and even some installation continued while we were there. It is clean, or better said unused. But also understaffed and the personnel lacks experience but it is somehow compensated by friendliness. The breakfast is horrible, everything cheap (especially ham, sausages and cheese) or/and very local. If you don’t eat eggs and plantains you will not be very happy. On the bright side fruits are good, oatmeal not bad and yogurts ok. The dinner is much better with the main cause good always. Even better in the a la carte restaurants but the waiting time there could be a bit frustrating. But then people are not in a hurry when staying in a resort. The beach is nothing to speak of. But then this is the way it is in Puerto Plata. If you want a good beach go somewhere else. DR has it all! In short all not bad.
