My family and I just came back from a visit to DR. We stayed at Oceans El Faro the staff was amazing to us great service everywhere Jennifer was so helpful friendly attentive a great person she went the extra mile to make my daughter 15th Birthday celebration phenomenal Johnathan ❤ attentive fast friendly great at his job always a smile behind the mask of course. Fernanda hostess smile clean helpful polite caring. Lury front desk polite helpful attentive funny. Immanuel, Daniel at the bar made me the most delicious drink on my last day he said so I won't forget him...I call it the Daniel special 😄 it was deeeelishous and effective it had fresh passion fruit in it omg and I cannot forget Jesus el capitan el maletero very helpful attentive the man that gets you the ride to wherever you're going. The hotel was Covid conscious had gloves masks and sanitizing down rooms clean service on my becon call pools clean Food was very tasty always available. The only thing was that due to covid restrictions and maybe capacity not all of their restaurants were open and you had to make reservations between 9am to 4pm if you wanted to eat at a special one and appointments ran out quickly but you did have the Market buffet restaurant as backup. The beach was not usable because of algae bummer but we didn't miss it our days were filled with activities they also have a theater show bowling and nightly activities dancing contests fire twirling act live mini concert type acts. Simply amazing We will be back my El Faro family 🤩😍

Hotel's Favourite
We had a great time as a family of 8, 3 kids and 5 adults (women) we enjoyed pool entertainment with WILSON! The best pool aerobics and music I ever imagined! Julio was THE BEST waiter - we literally followed him around to each restaurant he was at every night! Maximo was THE BEST bartender at the pool! Also Willy who was also restaurant waiter made us have the best experience when Julio wasn’t available and Ricardo when Maximo wasn’t available! Without these people and the friends we made it would never be the same! Don’t forget to ask for them they are the best!!

Me and my partner stayed for 5 days from 23rd May 2021 in a privilege room. We had our own check in desk which was quick and efficient. The covid checks and safety were impeccable, constant cleaning, staff always in masks and plenty of hand sanitizer around. The restaurants were good, though the food was disappointing sometimes. They were being run on skeleton staff so we did have a wait on some occasions but we were happy, it wasn't the waiters fault. The hotel itself is so very well laid out, we love staying here, there are so many amenities - love the bowling option as well as the lazy river and separate kids pool. always a mountain of sunbeds to choose from. The beach is not the best if that's your looking for. on our stay it was during the very heavy seaweed season but they were working so hard to fix/clear it, you really cant complain when its not something they can control. We LOVED Alejandro at the Sports Bar and Kelvin at the Beach bar. they were amazing. Also the young guy at the privilege bar at the beach, he made the BEST Passionfruit Margaritas! sorry I didn't get his name but he was great, bring drinks constantly and always keeping busy (even with so little customers) We have stayed here twice now, NOV 2019 & May 2021, privilege and not, though very different times, both would make us come back again. Truly love this hotel, the layout, the staff, the entertainment -even limited during covid - we still had a wonderful time. We will for sure be back again.

After being locked down for a year this vacation was so needed. I picked this resort cause I loved the rooms and the price was great for a party of 7. It exceeded our expectations! The staff easily became family . We spent a lot of time by the pool bar and Franklin is amazing!!!! He went above and beyond for us ! He’s definitely a great mixologist and once he became familiar with us he kept the drinks flowing ! We love him !!!!! Top notch customer service ! Daury and Willis were also amazing every time they served us we shared laughs and they truly felt like family ! Manuel in the lobby bar was great too ! We will definitely be back !!!

Service by the bar in the privileged area by Franklin was the best time I shared also great amenities but Franklin made service for us very very welcoming. Room service was great even though food was a bit dry lazy River was amazing the pools are well kept we had a swim-up suite which was well kept there was a musty smell in the beginning but quickly went away this is more of a resort probably good for a one-time stay but excellent nonetheless
