Great resort with all the potential to be an excellent one.

I just got back from a vacation with my wife, and we had a wonderful time! Let me start out by saying that i was worried about my choice of resorts. A large portion of the reviews were negative. I tried to filter through the bad to find the good. For the most part, the bad reviews found one thing wrong and let that color their whole perception of the resort. While I did find some small imperfections, by in large i think a reasonable person would find this resort an excellent choice. The resort is absolutely beautiful. The grounds are meticulously maintained. My room was spacious, spotlessly clean, and maintained like clockwork twice a day with the morning maid and the night maid providing turndown service. I stayed in room 66317 in building 66. It was on the 3rd floor in the corner facing the courtyard of the Anbar Blue lobby. When we arrive at the resort from our paid transportation from the airport (More on them in another review), we were greeted outside the Anbar Green Lobby by Alexander, a bellhop. He first offered to have beers brought to us and then rode us to the lobby of the Anbar Blue in one of the numerous electric trams on property. There, we met Wander. He took personal responsibility for us right away. he told us that he would be our butler for the week, and that if we had any questions, requests or problems, he would take care of them. He got us checked in, walked us to our room, and had our luggage delivered soon after. And the week only got better from there! Now, everything wasn't perfect, but let me debunk some of the bad reviews. I was never bitten by a single mosquito. I brought a couple of small spray bottles of Off with me and never had a problem. The service, by and large was stellar. We did have a couple of meals where we had to look for a server in the Anbar Blue dining room, but those were the times when our usual server, Eury was not there. He sought us out at every meal to make sure we sat in his section so that he could personally take care of us. The food, by and large, was wide and varied. There were temperature issues. Some items were lukewarm and others were cold. I love spicey food, and had a hard time finding it. Also, the cooking catered to blander tastes than mine. With that being said, I still found ample choices on the buffets to please almost anyone. I didn't go hungry! While seating at the pool was tough, I never had a problem getting a great spot on the beach. The vendors would ask if you wanted to purchase things, but a polite no was all that was needed. I will say that I didn't like the food at the Las Olas Beach Restaurant, but I'll give that a more detailed review later. I never had an issue with alcohol at this resort. As a matter of fact, I had to actually pace myself because of the huge variety as well as the quality of the drinks. My fridge in the room was stocked well with water and sodas, but stocking of alcohol needs to be improved upon. While i preferred to drink in social settings, I can see how some people would complain about the amount of alcohol and how often it is replenished. So to sum up, I think this is an incredible little jewel. it has its imperfections, but it is well worth it. Please note that Anbar Blue is the adults only section of the resort. It is a little more expensive than the other resorts on the property, but if you take time to go out to the other places, you notice what that extra gets you. My wife an I will definitely be going back!

excellent hotel, but a few problems

Just returned from a great holiday in this hotel. We had a few problems, but overall had a great time. Most of the staff were friendly, but not all. A simple goodbye would have been nice when leaving restaurants etc. The bar-staff were good, but one in particular seemed preoccupied and kept having to ask again what your order was. He seemed to try and serve too many at once instead of dealing with one at a time. The rooms were of reasonable standard, but could do with minor improvements. some floor tiles were cracked, window on patio didn't close properly and they had added a bolt on window because the proper latch was broken. Funny smell when we entered the room ,which smelt like old coffee or stale beer. Searched the room but couldn't find anything. This irritated me a bit, and it wasn't until a day before we left, when looking for the dreaded mosquitoes, that i discovered an old coffee sachet on top of the light fitting above the coffee machine. Do they do this to hide the smell of the room, or has somebody put it there as a laugh? Don't know but the smell was irritating. Tried different a la cartes in the resort and they were all fine. Anyone who criticises the food here is mad. Too much choice would be the only complaint. All in all a great holiday experience and the trip to Seona Island will stay with me forever. Try it, i promise you wont be disappointed. P.s the maids were excellent and worked really hard. And the butler....well he introduced himself with 2 days to go til we came home. Useful eh?

Good Value

This trip we booked through Apple Vacation was an all-inclusive adult only resort. The beach was clean and accessible. The room came with two double beds and sitting area. They were kept very clean by the housekeeping staff. The resort also assigned us a butler, to book reservations in the various restaurants as well as any excursions we wanted to do. I can't say enough about the staff they were both courteous and accommodating making sure we enjoyed our stay.

Fab holiday....

Just returned today and like many other reviewers I was slightly apprehensive after reading some of the more recent reviews. Here's my honest review, hope it's helpful: Check in: Wasn't super quick but was organised. We'd requested twin beds but was offered a king size bed - I was travelling with a friend so we asked to swap - within 15 minutes and a couple of cocktails we were in our twin bedded room! Room: Was lovely, a little dated and maybe in need of a lick of paint but it was clean, fresh and spacious. We tipped on our first day which meant that each day we came back to a new towel design, an exceptionally clean and tidy room and most evenings the beds had been turned down with pillow chocolates left for us. Minibar re-stocked daily with fresh towels each morning and sometimes in the evening! Service: At the bars we were served really quickly, the beach bar service to the sunbeds was a little slower but no wonder - the area of the beach they have to cover is huge - so I was more than happy to take a short walk to fetch my own drinks if a member of staff wasn't in sight. Complex: Huge, didn't see much of it, spent most of the time on the beach or at the bar! Was clean and beautiful so if you can cope with the heat do take a wander, it's worth it. wifi available just about everywhere. Construction: TUI reps weren't offering rooms opposite the construction site when we checked it, in the week we were there we couldn't hear any noise, notice any works from the beach or felt as if it impacted on our stay at all. The "Looky Looky" men were around all day but once you said no they just moved on, no hassle from them at all. Food: I used the App to book the restaurants, dead easy, reservation slots not always available for the very popular choices but once made I just showed my booking confirmation on arrival. The map is not quite right for some of the restaurants so we spent a bit of time hunting down where we needed to go - just jump on one of the carts if you're not sure, you soon get your bearings! Quality of food was great and whilst now hugely extensive there's enough choice to suit everyone. I loved this holiday, my first time in Punta Cana and was surprised at the size of the resort, the number of people on the beach but loved the scenery, the atmosphere and the people. Go, don't let negatives put you off, it's not perfect but it won't stop you from having a wonderful holiday.

Wonderful relaxing girls' getaway

We stayed in 65308 and everything was perfect. We loved the location because it was a 1-minute walk to the beach, buffet, pool, and gym. The food was typical of all-inclusives, but it was hot, fresh, and the theme varied each night. We didn't go to any speciality restaurants because we didn't want to have any sort of schedule. Everyone was friendly and the staff were diligent workers. The only issue we had was getting enough bottled water each day. Housekeeping always had plenty of soda but not enough water. We would return and stay in the same villa and do it all the same way. We never heard the construction, and only saw it when we went on a run along the paths on the outskirts of the resort.
