10/28 - 11/12 - Everything's excellente

Directly after our annual Swiss Herf I had to make a ride to Frankfurt because on the next day we'd our scheduled flight for two weeks of vacation in the Dominican Republic... no worries: I'd enough cigars with me that I wasn't in need to buy some of the crap you can get there...

The Secrets Royal Beach in Punta Cana was our home for two fantastic weeks... good food and drinks, friendly people, a nice hotel area, picture perfect weather...

The only negative thing that I can point out is the us of the word "excellente". All staff is trained to use it anytime for anything... everything's excellente, not just good! It's funny at the first days but then it starts to get on one's nerves... You couldn't answer "Muy bien" if somebody asked you "¿Cómo estás?"... everybody waited for an "excellente" or "super-excellente"... That's caused by the main slogan of the hotel: "We are not good, we are excellent!"

Let's say: complaining on a high level... anyhow.... we spent two very relaxing weeks and had a very good time...
