Two things I look for in a resort: Food and beach. Both need to be amazing, otherwise count me out. This resort situated in La Romana, Dominican Republic had it all. The beach was large, with a long stretch of soft sand, crystal-clear water, beautiful, tall palm trees, well-maintained grounds, friendly staff (who spoke both Italian and Spanish), amazing entertainment, music and GREAT food. I was told that the owners were Italian, and had Italian cooks, this explains the authentic Italian food that was found throughout the resort. The buffet had a good selection of freshly grilled fish and meats, and the custom pasta station was amazing. The restaurants on the resort all had a great selection of quality food.
Doesn’t get much better than spending an afternoon relaxing under a palm tree, sipping on some cold, fresh, pina colada, all while enjoying the breathtaking view of the ocean.
I love fresh fruit, and was so happy to find the creamiest, tastiest and most ripe coconuts I have ever tasted. I enjoyed eating coconuts and sweet pineapple probably every single day of this trip. Coconuts are highly nutritious and contain fibre and many other nutrients. The oil found within this decadent nut is by far one of the healthiest oils amongst the world. Pineapple on the other hand, is known to be a great digestive, and it too has many health benefits. It contains many different enzymes and minerals.

It was a well relaxed week, filled of soaking up the lovely sun, snorkeling, eating…a lot, and enjoying the exotic experience.
