I am usually not a big fan of the big hotels accessible only with staff driving around in golf-carts. This hotel is not an all inclusive. It is located outside of Puerto Plata central town, in a sort of compound of fancy hotels. That aside, the staff is very friendly and rooms are clean (if not very luminous). I stayed... More

The rooms are spacious with high ceilings and nice beds with good linen. The beach is definitely a big plus, with plush canopy beds on the beach to lounge on, it's easy to while away the... More
