Just came back from a trip to Hamaca. We had planned the trip many months in advance, so had a bit of time to second guess ourselves as we read some of the very negative reviews. Overall, we were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the hotel. It is no doubt a solid 3.5 star all-inclusive resort. Cleanliness and maintenance of the hotel are quite good, but can be better. The food was hit or miss, especially for vegetarians, but the chefs tried to accomodate. Initial service quality was somewhat lacking, but the staff responded well to special requests/complaints. There are garden view rooms "across the street", but they all feel like part of the same campus. There are a lot of moped-drivers on the streets who create a slight anxiety given the reports of purse snatchers, but we did not have any negative encounters. The beach/sand/water was beautiful. We never felt overcrowded. The pool and kids play areas were also nice. The after dinner theater was kind of run down. The New Year's Eve party thrown by the hotel was wonderful, with nice music, great atmosphere, decent food (great spread, but again not many vegetarian options), topped off by a spectacular fire works display. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to travelers looking for value for money. Yes, if you are expecting Ritz Carlton or Four Seasons, then best to look elsewhere.

The hotel was by no means luxuriousbut the beach is as beautiful as you could want it to be and the people are very friendly. Expect to ask for what you need especially at the dinner table, getting drinks and dinnerware was a goal every night. The entertainment was great and beach volleyball is always great! The pools are nice and there is great food on and off the resort. Overall a mellow feel and great stay.

Check-in was fine. A little confusing with no lines, but just step up to the counter and they'll get to you in a timely manner. This was me and my girlfriend's first all-inclusive and we'll definitely be doing another one. Mixed drinks were tasty and the El Presidente beer on tap in the dining hall was convenient. The food was definitely different, but never had a problem getting full - the midnight snack bar was perfect for soaking up the drinks from the late night disco. If anything about the resort needs work, it's definitely the rooms. Tile floors throughout, and you couldn't walk barefoot without getting your feet filthy b/c I don't think the housekeeping sweeps the floors. Beds were far from comfortable and you have to rent the TV remote from the front desk. All of the common areas of the resort are fine, and the nightly entertainment shows were awesome - especially the Michael Jackson tribute night. Props to the dance crews!!! Always felt safe at the resort and on the boardwalk to the beach. We even ventured out one night to grab pizza at a local spot and experienced no problems. I'd def recommend doing the excursion to Saona Island. It includes the bus ride to/from Punta Cana, a catamaran to the island, all drinks, a lunch buffet, and a jet boat ride. Overall, if you've never done an all-inclusive, don't be hesitant about this resort. We went on a 4 day trip out of Atlanta, and felt we got more than our money's worth.
