The flight to the motherland was postponed twice. The first time the good news came in the midst of a holiday, we fly away not at 13-30 after breakfast, but at 20-30, and we will also have time to have lunch. Then, through the online scoreboard, it completely turned out that our plane would take off from Moscow only in the evening and arrive in La-Romana in the morning of the next day indicated in the ticket. Therefore, they took us and 420 other people after dinner from their homes and took us to two hotels.
My friends and I ended up in Occidental Caribe 4 *, located in the province of La Altagracia, which we originally wanted to get into.
At Occidental, we were given a room with an ocean view, put on another bracelet and managed to earn for free the right to write a second review for the vacation.
The room is decent, has everything you need, a bit gloomy, but there was no time to study where to turn on the weight of the light right away. We spent all the time walking and swimming in the ocean. The ocean here is completely transparent, there is not even a hint of algae along the coast, the waves are rolling - a classic surf, the beach naturally flows into the territory of the hotel with an oasis of palm trees and then there are paths, a mowed lawn, which has a relief landscape to tenderness, I want to be photographed both from the left and from the right, and at the fountain, and against the backdrop of a jacuzzi, and of course to wallow.
Walking like this, we also saw a wonderful marvel that we had not seen for a long time and did not think to see in the Dominican Republic. QUEUE.
For a hamburger, for a drink, even to hand over a towel and then there is a queue. There is not enough staff, why are people hungry? it turned out when we went to dinner, ASS, there is nowhere to sit, tables full of dirty dishes, people tend to queue up to get a portioned dish because they will take it out once and there will be no more, we foolishly drank soup of the taste of swamp mud and there is no chance to bring a first-aid kit home touched melted with the first urge to the white porcelain brother.
Food in budget hotels can be scarce, but tasty and without stomach cramps, choose hotels with a rating close to or higher than 4.5 and be sure to have no stomach problems. Therefore, I cannot recommend the Occidental Caribe 4 * hotel.
The terrible attitude of the staff towards the Russians, it is impossible to interrogate the waiters, when we nevertheless managed to catch the waitress and ask for tea, her indignation knew no bounds - she did not put cups and saucers on the table, but practically threw them. Bartenders serve with such unfriendly faces that you can choke on their cocktails from such negativity.
But the MOST TERRIBLE is the arrivals of an unrealistic amount of inadequate American youth, which will turn your vacation into hell. THEIR CROWD!! ! These youngsters get drunk and behave like pigs, yelling, running around the hotel, it is impossible to sleep at night. Apparently, the hotel management is so greedy that it does not care about the interests and comfort of its guests, populating the hotel to the eyeballs with crowds of American youth who came for one purpose - to get drunk. CHOOSE ANOTHER HOTEL, OTHERWISE YOUR HOLIDAY WILL BE DISAPPEARED!
