We at the buffet everyday and we were sick of eating the same thing over and over .
The hotel rooms needs to be renovated so it's more luxury inside and not looking so warn down .
Dining was plentiful with local cuisine --buffet for breakfast and lunch . The omelette king was so great --miss the homemade omelette each morning !
Dinner was somewhat a concern as you had to wake up at 9 am and get in line for a reservation for the restaurant each evening. A couple of weeks ago, I booked 5-nights at Costa Caribe Coral in Juan Dolio, near Santo Domingo in the DR.
After my pool lesson the price was suddenly 0 and I never got an explanation as to how or why that would be the case since I could clearly see the sign that said it was only 5 but the instructor refused to give me any reason.
We went on an excursion that we paid extra to scuba dive on and also paid extra for our pictures to be taken that we never received.
The food and qualit..." "Service at it's best, from the moment I checked in.The resort charged my boyfriend and I more for things than they did for other people.We met a couple from holland that went on the same excursion as we did that they booked through the hotel the same way we did and they were charged less.Service was attentive , nice to all ages in party and spoke English without difficulty.Beach was lovely with large palm trees providing shade and breeze even in August --very nice to sit and listen to live music in the evenings too.
