... on the board and surf in one direction. The only problem was that we only knew how to move in one direction and after some minutes we were very far away from where we started. I ended up inside where people were supposed to swim and the lifeguard were yelling at me in front of all the people that were swimming. I don't blame him because I didn't have any control of what direction my board went in. Oda on the other hand never came out of where ...
... DR) and finished them while we walked to another club, a bit away. This club was also very loud, but it had more people then the first, and was pretty fun. We met some very nice girls from Canada; Melissa, Krystie and Amanda, and also ran into our friend Alix that we had met at the hostel in Santo Domingo!
We drank a lot, Tarvo bought a bottle of rum and coke and we tried to finish it. We got pretty damn close too.
The club started to close up so we started ...
... end of the day, was amazing. It was a restaurant that only allows adults that are 19 years and older. So thank God we were above that age or else we wouldn't have been able to enter. But I really recommended this restaurant. The food was amazing and the environment was really nice.
Now, going to bed and waiting to leave tomorrow. :(
... Toronto to Punta Cana. So the pilots had to wait for a plane to arrive in Toronto. So they could fly the plane to come pick us up in Punta Cana.
OMG! So much work for one flight. So our flight was actually a whole day, if you calculate all the time that we spent at the airport and waiting for the plane. So it was about 7 AM when we arrived in Toronto on Sunday.
Sigh! The longest ride every. It felt longer than when I flew to Hong Kong. LOL!
... lion show that I keep calling, seals. LOL! oppzz.
But the rest of the day, I was just chilling with my friends by the beach and doing some of the free activities.
By night fall we had another "special dinner," it was the Mediterranean dinner. It was alright. It had seafood and pasta. Nothing really special.

Historical Traveler Reviews Dreams Palm Beach Punta Cana
My husband and I went to Punta Cana for our honeymoon last week. I did not read all the reviews of the Hotel Allegro until several weeks before we left, and to be honest, I was scared to go after reading them. I was in for the best shock of my life when we pulled up to the hotel. The check in area is all open and it is beautiful.
My wife and myself celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary by visiting this resort the first week in October, the weather was perfect and the scenery beautiful. The service was good but there were way to many people in the resort trying to sell you either a vacation club or activities outside of the resort. Our room was nice and clean with two double beds, TV, safe deposit box and bathroom. The maid service was very good. All the rooms that we could see were basically the same but not like the room in the brochure. The food was good and plentiful as were the beverages. From reading previous review's it was a good idea to bring travel mugs with us (we would have spent half the day getting beverage's that were served in 8 oz. cups).
My husband and I travelled to Punta Cana for our Honeymoon in October 2002. It was beautiful weather and great food! Our room was standard and very clean. The restaurants were clean and great food with many selections. Neither of us felt sick after any meal or drink. I have heard many rumors on that.
The Allegro Bavaro Resort, all inclusive, with one main buffet restaurant and four specialty restaurants (need reservations and only allowed once per week for each) was a good resort. It is not outstanding and amongt the top resorts but it was a good, clean, comfortable and active resort.
I was in the travel industry for years so my now husband and I have traveled quite a bit around the Caribbean. Punta Cana is definitely a keeper, but I would probably stay somewhere else next time. The Allegro is a nice resort- very well-kept grounds, beautiful beach, yachts were docked just off the beach, fairly good food and great people- except the front desk staff. We checked in and let them know it was our honeymoon. They offered us an upgraded room for free but said we needed to wait until later that afternoon. All in all, we never got the upgrade-which is fine- we didn't pay for one. The room we did get, though, as well as some other people we talked to, didn't have air conditioning- just fans blowing room temp. air. We were hot at night, which really sucked. When we requested to at least change rooms they kept putting us off until we finally just gave up. Other than that, the place is perfect.
Allegro Bavaro: where you don't wanna go
the place needs some fixining up, slow service,the place is seriously understaffed, long waits, roaches all over the place, mold on the walls, if there is a problem the staff will ignore you, there are no King Size beds available at this hotel so don't let your travel agent tell you otherwise.
Hope you haven't paid for it yet, if you did I feel sorry for you,
Time of my life!
I recently took my first real vacation and we went to the Allegro Bavaro in the Dominican. I had the best time! The service was incredible, The food was amazing, and the entertainment was first rate!
I can't wait to go back!!!
The first problem with this hotel is location. I don't think it could've possibly been any further from absolutely everything. Just to get to a small flea market you had to take a taxi for about 20 minutes or so, the good part is they wait for you to be finished.
The Allegro Bavaro was a really nice place overall. Almost all of the rooms face the pool or garden, so don't hope too much for an ocean view. Our room had a single king size bed, which I was told is only one of eight rooms that have this. The rest are double queen beds. We had a group of 12 people, and everyone had a great time. No one got sick (Nothing worse than a few grumbling stomachs). The food was a 7 out of 10. Not excellent, but not bad either. One thing I didn't like, was the way the fajita's were served. The guy used the same forks to serve the cooked chicken, that he used to handle the uncooked chicken. I really liked the self serve soda and beer machines. All you want day or night with out any lines. The Presidente beer is excellent. Even the mixed drinks were liked by everybody. Between 7 and 9pm every night they serve top shelf liquor shots. All name brands from the US. They also have a big nightclub on site. Everyone had a good time there. All you can drink until 2 AM without any cover charge. Free pool tables,ping pong,and basketball.
Wedding disasters- It seemed like a great idea but
Please let me tell you not to organize a wedding at this resort, from the beginning to end of the day it was not something you want to participate in, totally disorganized from the boat ride, the minister, the wedding organizer herself and the staff. All did there best to upset the bride and groom. Their where lies or dishonesty every step of the way.
STAY AWAY FROM PLANNING A WEDDING THERE!!!
