It’s been 2 weeks since we got back from there but still seems like yesterday. This really is a very lovely place to visit and in my opinion does not deserve all those negative reviews it’s been getting. I’m glad to answer any questions at all. Just PM me.
Oh I also wanted to mention, some people have commented on the boats moored to one side of the resort and the smell???
Yes there are some small piers near the Bavaro end of the resort where the parasailing boat plus the big snorkling and catamarans come to pick up customers for those excursions. It is rather interesting to watch but at no time were there any smells at all. Just to compare, apparently there is really busy boat traffic in front of the Riu’s (and probably many other places too) so this is not an isolated situation. It was never a problem and was not a constant thing. Often it was very quiet. Enjoy this “oasis”!!!
