My husband and I stayed here for a week in September. It is pretty nice for the location it's in. The people there were so sweet to us. The food is pretty good too! I thought it was kind of weird to have Italian food at a hotel in the DR (not sure why...) but, it was actually really good... More

We booked it through RCI and expected a bit higher quality. The hotel restaurant was good, we ate breakfast every day and dinner twice. Since it had low occupancy lunch was not offered. The rooms showed quite some wear and only the bedroom had airconditioning. The kitchen was sparse but but functional. The neighborhood did not invite for any nightly... More

This is my third stay at the Acuarium and I see continuous improvement each time that I return. The location is good in that it's near a main bus line which will take you into the heart of the city's business district and taxi service is always available. It is also not very far from the airport. The staff, including... More

The hotel itself is good and they are constantly improving but the service is spectacular. I have used this hotel and kept visitors here for many years. The location could be better but the guards seem to keep everything safe and they are nice, too. The food is very good and reasonable, even cheap for a hotel. I've read this... More

The atmosphere is different than many places around Santo Domingo. More quiet and more space to spread out and relax.Great for groups! Nice rooms for the price and very clean facility overall. The staff is very helpful and friendly. They work hard to make your stay there positive.

Stayed at this hotel on an exchange through RCI. I had read the reviews before booking so I knew it was off the beaten path, in what was considered a "bad area." But we were actually taken very good care of by the hotel staff. They arranged taxis for us when we wanted to go out, and even though its... More

Santo Domingo is not a vacation destination. But if you have to go there, there's nothing nicer than coming back to the Acuarium Hotel for a tasty hot meal, and a dip in the lovely pool. Rooms are basic and comfortable, bathrooms are supplied with towels, soap and paper towel. (no shampoo, shower caps, etc) CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN Kitchenettes are... More

Stayed at this resort between Christmas and New Years, and really enjoyed it. I was travelling with my husband and adult son and daughter. We went into well informed by Trip Advisor reviews, that the neighbourhood was a bit rough looking, but that the resort was nice, and it was! Always a pleasant security guy outside to greet you, and... More
