Beautiful beach that is all

The beach is quiet and beautiful. The food is expensive and disgusting, 50$ for 2 meals, breakfast (dominican breakfast) and lunch (ceasar salad) with 3 beers. The room I had was seperated with a simple closed door with another apartment where was a little kid yelling, could hear everything... when I think about that I saw more employees than guests in the hotel. They could have managed this better. If you need to move outside the hotel, I would recommend to rent a car. Taxi prices are more than expensive. There were 2 different persons at the reception, if you ask the pretty girl to call you a taxi it will cost you less than with the other one. I suppose the other women has some kind of deal with the taxi drivers and they will charge you more. Ex. I paid 1800 Dom. Peso to go to the Westin with the other women. When the pretty girl called me a taxi I paid the same price to go to Bavaro, which is really twice the distance!

Dear Matthew, We appreciate your feedback, this is very helpful to keep us improving. We will review the food rates and quality. And about the Taxi rates, we will review that. Unfortunately this is apart from the hotel as we only call them for you, but we don't have an agreement with them. We will ask for how much is before the Taxi come in order our guests can know how much will be for the way. Thanks for understand, and we apologize for the inconvenience this may caused.
