Our trip to DR was amazing. There were 8 of us traveling, there was something for everyone to do.
Cons: We had 8 ppl in our party and were given a golf cart that held 4, we asked for a 6 person but even after our golf cart broke down twice and we had to call for help, they still wouldn’t replace it. Another con was the ppl trying to sell us share into the property, going there with 3 other couples we were very interested in buying as a group. However, we were promised so much (i.e., hats, shirts and goodie bags etc) and after our 4hr tour and lecture we got nothing and were left with a ton of unanswered questions. The Villa was nice, however we did lose power at least once a day and they only gave us 8 beers a day for 8 ppl, 4 of which were beer drinking men.
Pros: We flew into Santiago which was an hr shuttle ride (via Coco Tours) it was nice to see the country and its local villages. The realization of how they live was eye opening and it was a great experience. When we got to the resort we checked-in which was very simple. We were brought to V45, every morning Maria came and cleaned our villa and made us a wonderful breakfast. We tried both buffets for different meals but found we liked Casablanca. The food was much better and it was less crowded. We made reservations at a different restaurant every night, it was nice to try new types of foods and if we didn’t care for it then we just simply headed over to the buffet after. The shows were awesome and the VIP beaches were amazing. The service was beyond unbelievable, food, drinks and cigars all day served to us while we were soaking up the sun on king size beds..it was just what we needed for this vacation.
All in all it was amazing, we strictly went to just relax and do nothing. Next time we will try an excursion. But in all honesty you can go, never leave the resort and have fun doing all that they offer there.
We booked through Leslie and Bob; they were beyond amazing and helpful. They supplied me with such in depth information that when we got there the staff were very impressed with how much I knew. They were very easy to get in contact with and always answered all of my questions. They kept in contact with me throughout the 6 months after I booked until the day of our vacation. I read a lot of horrible reviews but they always eased my mind and reassured me with everything I had concerns of and if they didn’t know the answer they found out for me!!! THEY ARE AMAZING, I’ll book with them again.
