I started travelling to the Dominican Republic in 2007. I stayed at Esmeralda one time and it's the only place I stay when I'm in the country. The cost of the room is very affordable. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The locals are all very nice. The rooms are always cleaned and stocked everyday. If you need your... More

Filth in the kitchen sink in their studio apartment, cockroaches around the floor everywhere, little black beetles inside the refrigerator, kitchen utensils used by the former resident and put back into the drawer dirty. Don't think of this as a habitation; think of it as a potential infection. I booked for a month online but left on the third day.... More

I regularly stay in this simple guesthouse whenever I travel to the Dominican Republic. They offer good value for acomodation in Santo Domingo. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are spacious and clean. It's in a safe neighbourhood and there are some fast food chains and a big supermarket nearby. It's easy to catch a gua gua into town... More
