Jason Birchmeier of Allmusic gave the album four stars out of five, calling it "good news for those who enjoy state-of-the-art reggaeton without any experimentation" and specifically mentioning that "the employment of first-rate producers Nesty, Tainy, El Nasi, and Monserrate and DJ Urba in the place of Wisin & Yandel's former beatmakers-in-chief, Luny Tunes, ensures the quality of the music." He summarized the review by saying that "the result is a new-yet-familiar album sure to please the duo's fan base, and likely grow it as well as the hits mount."[7]
