look out for all the "Additional Charges"
there were too many additional charges to access to certain areas. this place just seemed like a money grab even though i already paid for the junior suite.

Noisy and overcrowded
Nice facility but way too overcrowded and noisy. Pounding loud music until 2am. Really ?? I bet 95% of customers were unable to sleep and annoyed. Service was good despite there being way too many guests there.

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.

Very Good8.0
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.
