Los Corales Beach Village is absolutely gorgeous, the location can't be beat for an escape from everything North American. I loved it! You rent these little haciendas on the beach, I was lucky enough to get one directly on the beach #22, I could see the beach from every window including my bedroom, which had french doors, incredibly intimate and romantic little Spanish style apartment homes. If you want to escape your life, and simply rest, go to a well equipped spa, have a little fun, I would definitely advise this place. You don't have a fight for a beach lounger like at some all inclusive and sometimes have the beach to yourself. The spa is 5 minutes walk and an amazing little breakfast nook called Joy is delightful to saunter over to in the morning. Of course you can participate in any of the fun excursions Puna Cana also offers, the party boats are unbelievable. I had great service from Uradi who was at reception when I arrived, she always has a radiant smile and is very accommodating and helpful, the other service I received at the hotel wasn't so great including from one of the owner's. If you go to this resort you should brace yourself for the fact that transfers to and from the airport aren't included, and you won't get much of a welcome, my welcome was a locked door. This is like checking into a motel, not an all inclusive, I would suggest taking small bills because the area is on the fringe of where the local Dominicans live and when you eat out they don't have change if you are carrying large bills, the hotel reception didn't seem to have the ability the break down US dollars either. There is a lot lacking for services in fact, you only get your room cleaned and towel changes every 4 days. Uradi was helpful also in this area she gave me service earlier when I asked. If you are not up to throngs of people and are looking for solo time away from humanity this is the perfect spot. Just be prepared for the limited services offered, and also have small US bills to buy your meals and don't expect much from the reception, you're on your own was the vibe. There was an interesting bar up the beach Flamingo, who makes a great Pina Coloda and a tiny 2 seater restaurant literally on the beach also that was adorable for breakfast and lunch. If you desire to simply chill out and escape the stress of work life and pressures this is ideal. The spa also was a highlight you can get a massage in the zen garden area, on the beach or in the spa, as well as at midnight, the spa is fully equipped with multiple services and great staff, lovely people who actually care. And last but definitely not least is the incredible awe inspiring view of the ocean, sunrise and sunset.…
The hotel is close to the beach, Alberto at the front desk was very helpful and accommodating with everything. They upgraded us to a junior suite which was very nice!!! However, you don't get any water like it says online, you also don't get any more toilet paper or shampoo except what is in the room when you check in, there was no cleaning of the rooms the whole time there and we never got new towels until the night before leaving. The restaurant/bar at the hotel was never open either so don't expect to be able have a cocktail or meals there.
It’s not the pool, the staff (not any room service in 10 days), the rooms or anything else but the location and price that warrants a 4 star review. The rooms were nice and the view absolutely amazing. I had a standard suite with ocean view (2nd floor). Well worth it considering it was only $10 night more than Tropicana Suites (what a joke). Aside from that, the nearby store, pizza place and being steps from the beach was awesome. The best part...you’re away from all the hounding vendors on the streets.
Don't stay here! AC did not work. Electricity went out most of the night. When I went to the service desk they said the man was not there and they could not do anything. When I complained the next morning, the service desk was rude! I can't say it enough, STAY AWAY!
I usually book directly but found this place on booking and decided, lets try. EXCELLENT choice! The place easy to find, fantastic location, nice, clean spacious apartment/villa. Was PERFECT! I defiantly recommend.
