My room was adequate. I had my family there and they enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi. I didn't care for the food but I needed to sit and relax after a long day of site seeing. My only negative is that the water pressure fir the shower was week.

This resort is a good value. The rooms have kitchens so you can cook in your room. The hotel offers a free transportation service to and from the beach as well as the supermarket. Within the resort they have a restaurant as well as a nice pool. The surrounding area isn't so nice but the price makes it worth while... More

The place is very very run down. The bedside lights didn't work, the room key only sometimes worked, everything is quite dirty, and it did not feel safe to walk around outside the hotel. The place is presumably named for a small aquarium in the bar, the residence of one sad goldfish. Not sure if it is the national cuisine... More

Me and my fiance had a horrible experience at this hotel. The first night we arrived at the hotel the person who helped us check in and bring our bags to our room broken into our room and stole $300 right out the bedroom dresser. We checked in late at night and they suggested we eat at a place nearby... More

It seems pretty unreasonable that you post a review one year after your stay and we have no such record of this report. We provide FREE safety deposit box to all our clients. We have electronic keys and are able to see who goes in and out of each room and if police did not investigate further is because it... More

As a seasoned traveler who typically enjoys better than average rooms.....this hotel is a hard pill to swallow. The neighborhood is ROUGH, the rooms are outdated, the beds are hard as rocks and don't get be started on the pillows!! If you don't mind less than average rooms this is fine. However, Santo Domingo is a dangerous city, so you... More

ROBBED - AVOID THIS HOTEL We are a Canadian couple that arrived at the Acuarium Suites Hotel and our first impressions of the hotel were very positive. The pool and grounds are well kept and the staff is very friendly. On the Saturday evening of our stay we went downstairs to the restaurant in the hotel and upon returning one... More

We stayed a week at the Acuarium Hotel in Feb, 2015. Check in was a breeze and we were in our room in minutes. The room was very nice with a open kitchen and separate bedroom with AC. It also had a nice patio outside overlooking the courtyard. The restaurant was very nice and provided many dining options. This is... More
