Lovely hotel in colonial zone. Perfect location. The room was clean and comfortable. Great view from the jacuzzi and the beers were refreshingly icy cold. Thank you Consulado​ for the warm hospitality.

My friend and I stayed here because we wanted to be in the center of everything. We had also spent quite a few days sleeping in a not so nice backpacker hostel near Punta Cana and wanted to treat ourselves to a nice place. We got what we wanted! The room was beautiful! I loved all the tile work and... More

Overall it was a very nice hotel. Breakfast was very good and the restaurant, while a bit pricey, was also had a very good dinner. Great location with an amazing staff. The pool in the center courtyard was amazing after a long day of sightseeing. But I should warn you, the hot tub was out of commission in December. But... More

its a very filthy hotel with terrible service. I know some pleople gave it an ok review but please trust me on this one, never ever under any circumstance stay in this hotel. The pictures make the place look so cute and it could be if they kept it clean. But it is such a filthy place.

The word "boutique" when used as an adjective means...a business whose service is sophisticated or specialized. That is far from the case with the Dona Elvira. I would class this hotel as comparable to a Hostel in that it is very outdated and definitely overpriced for what you get. The hot water is tepid, at best. The Jacuzzi was green... More

This is by far the best B&B I've ever stayed in. The attentiveness of the staff at all hours was really impressive. I stayed here twice during this vacation and it was truly remarkable. The owner took time out to chat and take pictures with us. The food is great!!! Great value for a prime location!! And I'm definitely going... More

A friend recommended this place and I am glad she did. This place is close to the sights and is priced right. The staff are very friendly and speak very good English making the experience even more enjoyable. The manager gave us great recommendations for places to eat and advised against certain tours because they were considered a waste of... More
