Great hotel, but poor service

A perfect location, but does not deserve a five star due to unfriendly and unprofessional employees in almost all restaurants they have. They have five restaurants and a pool bar, but only 3 are open for lunch or dinner so the employees will be working in all off them. Especially female staff is not able to smile or at least have a neutral face when you approach them if you are a female. Some male staff is continuously hitting on you cause you're a female without a male with you. Very uncomfortable. I was there with my daughter celebrating the completion of her bachelor, but we did not feel welcome at all. The quality of the food was poor in general. The room: We booked a suit with sea view. When we arrived after traveling for more then 15 hours (from Europe) arriving in the evening we found out that from the room we got you can see the sea if you stand and try real hard to see the sea over the top of a sad roof and through palm trees. When you enter the room you get claustrophobic immediately. I asked for another room and did not get unpacked. We were promised another room the next day. We got that the next day at 17:00 pm after going back and forward to the reception for a couple of times. Which means that we started our holiday a day later. That room was the room we booked with a wonderful view of the sea. The room was daily cleaned, but only shampoo, conditioner and bath gel was refreshed daily, other amenities not. We got the room with an empty minibar. After asking the reception to fill the minibar for 4 days I gave up asking them again. The forth day someone came to the room in the evening and asked us if there was anything we needed. I told that person about the minibar, and finally the 5th day the minibar got stocked. We were there for 7 nights. The day we had to leave, I asked them about options for late check out as our flight was scheduled for 20:00 pm and their check out time is 12 pm. If we wanted to keep the room till 17 pm we had to pay 40 USD per hour. Not an hour was given to us complimentary for the wasted first day of our holiday. In other 5 star hotels I have never paid extra for late check outs. The first 5 star I ever been to, which turned out to be a disappointment. You book a 5 star for the quality of service you expect. I believe with right management of staff it can be a great hotel. All other resources are available. But Client Service is something that they need to work on.

Not a hotel that i'd visit again.

On arrival everything was fine until i checked into my room. I had the ocean view junior suite, which looked and sounded lovely on-line. The room was old and shabby and smelt damp. It was more like a room that belonged in a 2star hotel. I was not happy at all. in the end i upgraded to a honeymoon suite with private pool which was a lot better but cost an extra 875us on top of my holiday. The private beach is tiny and not kept well. The restaurants in the hotel were nice, they had all top shelf drinks in the bars so no complaint there. The evenings entertainment was an absolute joke.

Wunderbares Hotel

Pros: Alles!
Cons: Nein.
Location: Direkt am schönen weissen Strand in der Nähe von Punta Cana bleiben. Draussen (Samana) ist die Armut extrem, dass möchte man in den Ferien nicht sehen
Es gibt nichts zu beanstanden. Wir waren 5 Tage in diesem super Resort und sind dann noch in ein anderes Resort nach Samana gereist, wo wir 10 Tage bleiben wollten. Nach 5 Tagen sind wir ins Sanctuary zurückgekehrt, da es uns im anderen Resort gar nicht gefallen hat. Mitarbeiter, Zimmer, Essen, Restaurants, Strand, gesamte Anlage, einfach alles ist perfekt und auf hohem Niveau. Falls wir je wieder in die DomRep reisen sollten, dann sicher wieder in dieses Resort. Herzlichen Dank an alle für den wunderschönen Aufenthalt!

Baignade en mer impossible!!!!

Plage envahie par des tonnes d'algues enlevées au bulldozer. Donc réveil par les machines, wi-fi payant sauf au Lobby, safe qui ne fonctionne pas, rideaux dans la chambre qui vous tombent sur la tête, fils électriques qui sortent du mur dans la salle de bain à la place du télé avons dû payer 40 dollars l'heure pour pouvoir conserver la chambre avant notre départ en fin de journée... Heureusement, le personnel était sympatique.

Connaître Cap Cana

Premier séjour à Cap Cana. Si vous recherchez le calme, un service raffiné et personnalisé, un hôtel confortable et différent de tous les autres établissements all inclusive de tourisme de masse à Punta Cana, alors cet hôtel est celui qu'il vous faut ! Mention particulière pour le personnel et le gérant de la réception, Hector Alfaro, grâce à qui tout devient possible ! Excellent séjour
