Fantastic Trip
Reviewed 5 days ago

When I arrived at the resort I was sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. Quick check in process. The rooms are pretty nice for the most part. AC not as cold as you would expect. But over all not disappointing. The staff we AMAZING. From Franchesco in the lobby eager to drive you around on the shuttle carts to him securing our luggage upon arrival because our rooms were not ready yet. He was the BEST! I highly recommend getting a poolside massage by Ruth. Worth every penny or should I say pesos. The food in the specialty restaurants was so good. The buffet on the other hand was hit or miss. I have to say I was very apprehensive about trying this resort after reading others reviews but I am so glad I did. I will definitely be returning!!!

Excellent family vacation

We had an excellent family trip. Myself, wife and 2 kids. I would really like to thank a couple of your staff members who made this trip memorable. Caroline from your kid’s club and entertainment team. We have been to a dozen different resorts and she stood out as one of the best employees out of all of them. My kids, especially my daughter loved being with her. She was very good with the kids. Came and got them to give us a break. Caroline is an outstanding employee and should be acknowledged as such. With out her your review would have been much different. Janet a server in Las Dalias did an excellent job. Very nice person, Malley I believe is the name of our cleaner. We were in Room 51303 from apr 12- apr 19. She did an excellent job of cleaning up after us and took care of any issues we had. Maria a server in the lobby bar was always coming with a drink. she did very well. Miguel from your entertainment staff did a great job, always happy and always entertaining. These staff members made made our trip enjoyable. Good Job.

i would go back again!

This was our second time to this particular resort. We brought friends this time and had an amazing time. The food, drink and service was fantastic. The rooms were clean and always restocked daily. The staff was always friendly and helpful. Will definitely return someday.

Family trip to Turquesa
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Last week my family and I travelled in a group of 20 to GBP Turquesa.

We had been to the GBP Punta Cana before so we knew what to expect.

We were checked in efficiently and were prioritized as we were travelling with our three year old twins.

The room was about what we expected. When booking, we had a hard time understanding the differences between the room types (i.e. what we would get in a family junior suite vs a regular suite... aside from the juice and milk in the fridge). We ended up having an interconnected room with our friend which was amazing. We had the family junior suite and she had a regular suite. The rooms were the same size, but we had two double beds, a cot and a couchbed. Her room had a king and a couchbed. Our room was stocked with kid friendly drinks, whereas her’s was not. The hotel was very accommodating at providing us our room requests. My sister’s family got an interconnected room with my parents as per their request.

This may just be a symptom of me getting older but I found the beds to be quite uncomfortable. In fact, after waking with bad neck and back pain the first two nights, I slept the rest of the week on the cot, which I found more comfortable.

The biggest complaint I have about the rooms is noise level. We were in building 49, right along the road which faces the GBP village. That village is where they do the late night shows, which are excessively loud and go until 1130pm. The Turquesa is supposed to be more family focused so I have no idea why this loud late night entertainment is held is such close proximity. On a few occasions, my kids woke up scared of the noise in the nighttime. That said, I did not complain or request a room change so there is always the possibility that the hotel would have accommodated a room swap if we had asked. Nevertheless, I don’t think that the entertainment there should be so loud, or perhaps the 9pm show could be there and the late show at the other venue at the GBP PC/Bavaro lobby area.

I actually went to one of the shows at the village and even being there and watching it, I thought it was too loud. They could easily turn down the bass 50% and the sound 25% ... the neighbours could sleep better and it wouldn’t detract from the show.

As for food, it was all pretty good. The a la cartes were very good, and the buffet was pretty decent, but like any buffets, they start to run tired.

All in all, I’d recommend the resort and would go back again, but in a different section unless the entertainment noise is addressed.
