Horrible customer service
We tried to cancel our stay and asked for a refund because we are from New York and under self quarantine. While the hotel did say they would refund our payment, they NEVER did. despite the fact we could be contagious and did not want to risk bringing COVID19 to the Dominican Republic. Even under this circumstance- they still refused. So, no.... we will NEVER stay there.

It's one of the most beautiful places I have visited in the Dominican Republic. The staff is very courteous and the marina was gorgeous along any kind of yatchs and boats.
