18 sleeps and counting

Im so excited, we are going to the Dominic Republic - Punta Cana for a week of sun and fun. Probably a few drinks included as well.
We are staying at the Natura Park resort which is supposed to be an eco resort but lets face it, my idea of eco and their's is totally different. When they say eco, it means that the building and surroundings are all build out of eco friendly/native material. Im just going for the beach and it is supposed to be amazing.
It was hard to pick a place to go, we really didn't have a preference other than under a certain price point, at least 4*'s and a sandy beach. We looked at so many places and different resorts and reviews from hundreds of people. Finally we found this place and the price was right. The reviews were mixed but they all are, but everyone said the beach was the best. We will go with an open mind and I think because of that we will have a great time.
Am I concerned with food? Yes I have to admit I am a little nervous. Ive heard lots of people say there is no body that speaks english at all there and that terrifies me. But I will go with a card in spanish telling them of my diet concerns and some soy milk, cereal and snacks that I will bring with me, cross my fingers and hope Im not strictly living on salad for a week.
