This truly was the most relaxing place we have ever been. This a a very quiet resort for relaxing! There are still lots of things to do such as: cocktail class with Domingo at the bar by the pool. We made the most delicious ginger mojito! There was also different live music every night!
The rooms are spacious and cool! The maid service is excellent. They clean the room 3 times per day and leave creative flower arrangements.
The spa was also amazing with Santo and Rojo providing excellent massages for my husband and I. They have an excellent sauna and steam rooms and well as her pools. It is very serene.
Enrique was our Butler for the week and it was a pleasure getting to know him as he looked for ways to provide excellent customer service including finding me some extra chocolate!!!
The food at all the restaurants was amazing! We love the options at each restaurant. Or if you choose you can order room service 24/7 which was also amazing!
The beach was set up with very comfortable lounging chairs, couches, hammocks etc...
I would highly recommend this all inclusive resort, and we would love to return!

Although well kept small resort, I do not understand the overwhelming reports. Food is very common and not to write home about as some people do. The service is quite slow and bumbling in spite of the efforts of some personel, being the lunch restaurant the best of them all. I even had some light food poisoning from somehing I ate.The rooms are ok even if the AC does not work properly and makes a lot of noise. The beach was not pleasant and the lack of good beach chairs in suficienty quantity is evident. Unless you do not mind to be in an unconfortable beach chair with no shadow. The beach bar although seemed popular with people staying there all day at it, was not a place to be... the water around it looked pretty dirty (oiled). The main bar had two excellent professionals, a guy that really enjoyed his work and that paired very well with a very polite and happy girl and some days a very badly mannered guy who really should not be there.
We had chosen this resort mainly because it seemed different from the mass resorts all over the DR, expecting good food and service, great spirits and good beach, but the reality proved not to be so. We had seven days there that were ok but nothing special, moreover taking in consideration the price paid. We have been in other resorts paying half the price and getting better memories than in Zoetry. Suffice to say that because of these holidays that were supposed to be the main holidays this year, we are now going to the Maldives
