The perfect hotel I’ve been.
It’s a condo and hotel.
Service amazing, food it’s healthy and perfect for the hot weather a lot of variety, fruits, vegetables, rice, cold soups, fish with exotics creams and pork, lamb, beef.... Excellent quality.
We ordered the romantic dinner and it was amazing!! Lobster, ceviche.... awesome decoration on the beach and prívate with champagne.
It’s so quite, you can relax to much. Not a lot of party and very exclusive. Good guests.
Clean good.
The beach it’s amazing.
You have a exclusive italian boutique inside hotel.
Workers very polite.
And guest as well. Not drugs, not people making noise, not drunks. If you are looking for destroy your self or have hangover this is not your hotel!!!!!! Not La Romana. Not Casa de Campo. You must go to Punta Cana, to tallest resort, and party!!

We stayed at this resort a couple of weeks ago. If you can avoid it, don't arrive after 11pm. There's no food or drink available (just bottled water in the room and pop) there's no one to help you find your room. Everything shuts down by 11pm.

This is not a huge resort with a lot of variety by no means. There's 1 swim up bar, 1 restaurant and 1 bar near the beach beside the restaurant. There's waterslides for kids but only open certain times of the day. The weekends are REALLY busy with local families and lots of children. There's a general convenience store (expensive too)
We brought our own snacks, and so glad we did.

If you looking to just relax, this is the place for you. The beach is a bit rocky, but the swimming is great and so is the snorkeling.

The grounds are well kept, clean & beautiful. The view of the beach and sea is absolutely gorgeous.

Our room was kinda small, the air conditioner worked well, bed was comfortable, clean and there was a safe in the room but we had to ask for a new one as the one we had did not open. After 3 requests and hunting down the security guy, he came to replace the safe, but it was not secured to the wall.
There's clean towel service (hut on the beach), we never went without clean beach towels.
The pier has more than enough room for all. There was snorkeling just off the pier. You can rent equipment at the excursion hut on the beach for that.

Some of the staff were friendly but for the most part NOT. I tried my best to be friendly & respectful of them & tipping as much as I could and trying to speak Spanish (90% of them cannot speak English) but I felt it was not appreciated at all. I left a tip in the fridge the 2nd day & no one accepted or took the money....mmmm...that tells me they don't want it?? or maybe it was too little? $2USD

The highlight of our trip was the Catamaran to Saona Island. Its a full day, so get some good sleep the night before. We bought our trip at the Excursion hut on the beach. It's highly recommended. You travel to The Blue Lagoon Beach (STUNNING!) have the most amazing lunch & then sail on to Saona Island. The island is home to 400 people. The little stores on this beach are very expensive. If you're looking to take some rum home (I bought Barceló) buy it in the airport on your way home. There's snorkeling too but overall I'd rate the Blue Lagoon beach # 1 in my books and I LOVE Cuban beaches.

There's a free shuttle to the Casino and some local stores but it wasn't worth the trip.

FOOD: I never ate anything that wasn't cooked (only pineapple) DO NOT DRINK THE WATER. Do not drink the milk either. Service in the restaurant is limited, staff are over worked. I never got sick but my daughter had salad one day and was sick. Be careful.
The Pasta was the best Pasta I've ever had, the Pizza is also good. Not much variety but we went to this resort to relax, have some sun, have some drinks and enjoy the beach, this made up for the lack of variety of food.
BOOZE: Very limited, all we drank was Pina Coladas & Presidente beer. There's a coffee bar at the main bar which is also nice. The mojito's were not the best I've ever had. I did take a Bubba mug which helped if you're wanting a drink on the Pier. Fill up at the main bar and take it with you.
There is premium booze @ $5 a shot but not very much.

Overall we didn't have a bad stay at all. I probably won't return, I'd like to see other places in the Dominican next time.
I'm bad with names but Angela who I think is the front desk Manager was awesome.

beutiful resort and settings,
Reviewed 3 months ago

• Beautiful settings and architecture, it gives you feeling of being in a small Catalan village, there is even a small church at the center, open every day for prayers and on Sunday there is a Mass.
• the sea water is crystal clear all the time, shallow from 3 to 10 feet, you can swim for kilometers both ways, along the side of National Reserve (south), or toward the other resorts (north). I love swimming in the Ocean and it was the main reason I went to the Cadaques
• The water is so pristine, the coral is forming on the artificial reefs, the best across the National reserve outpost (green buildings in a jungle).
• Beautiful wooden pier with a gazebo, sheltering you from a scorching sun, you can always find chairs there, but you have to put your towels at around 8:00AM. There is always a little breeze there to cool you from the heat, because of the breeze there are no mosquitoes or other crickets to bite you. The pier is guarded by very friendly security men
• spend an extra $100 or so and reserve the so called "double room" - for a small amount of money you are tripling your chance of having comfortable cool temperature when you sleep. (air condition unit is in every room). every building has functional and wheel chair accessible entry and an elevator.
• The resort is very small and private, I think it is half owned by condominium owners who spent their cold month there.
• there is enough clean water in the room, supplied every day for drinking and cleaning teeth
• The bed linens are changed every day, 2 bathrooms gives you extra privacy and convenience.
• the afternoon 3-11PM bartenders, especially Carlos and Alexandro are very attentive and professional, apologize for forgetting the name of a bartender lady on the Aft, shift which is also very professional and attentive.
• the staff is very pleasant
• safety is excellente
• effort and dedication - Roberto the big Chef, Angela- reception, Grassal the restaurant Super, Carlos, Alexandro- beach bar, Aleuri waiter deserve many thanks for making our stay pleasant .
Things for improvement:
• Restaurants , there is only one restaurant trying to serve 3 meals/day
• very limited menu, the food which should be served warm is cold. This is very unpleasant for the grease cuisine of Caribbean. The restaurant has "plate type" food tray warmers, which are proven to be inadequate, the food in few minutes is cold. A steam table might do the trick.
• weekends, a lots of families are coming there to spent a weekend, beautiful and friendly people, they are all cash only customers (not all inclusive). In restaurant, they get the total attention, you can wave, but nobody will come to fill your glass with a drink, they are too overworked. But, if you like the wine with your meal, go to the center waiter station where the wine is stored and help yourself, nobody will say a boo. If you like a beer with your meal it is more difficult, because you have to go to the adjacent beach bar and wait in the line for your turn to be served, at the same time your food is getting very cold.
Not beautiful at all:
• Alberto, the Sun wing rep - was very ignorant and rude when we have arrived, the hotel was apparently overbooked at the arrival, Alberto answer to one of the customers was: you should be grateful this resort is not charging you extra, I was shocked - the issue was that couple of vacationers were waiting for a room from 3:00PM (booking time) to around 6 PM, they were quite upset because they have 2 small children. We all arrived at around 11: 30 AM, long waiting for a room and everybody was little on the edge. Miss Angela was very polite and trying hard to accommodate everybody, but Alberto was passing unnecessary aggravating comments.
• Before I came to Weare Cadaques, I was under the impression that I could eat a 2 days old road kill before I could get sick - boy, I was wrong
• extremely avoid Ice cubes - if water or drink tastes funny, take a look at the ice cubes in your glass, make the sun rays reflect from them, if you see hair line black lines in it (fungus). the water in the restaurant is purified, but to cool it they pour in it a couple of bags of ice cubes
• avoid any food which is not hot when you touch it. Eat soups (very tasty) and pizzas if you can
• extremely avoid food served for snacks - the food warmers are candle type and the wieners as well as the hamburgers (yuck) are always cold.
It is really too bad, because this otherwise beautiful resort deserves better.
