I am so glad we stayed here. Our original plans were changed and we had to scramble around for other options. I think we were lucky because unknown to me, Punta Cana is virtually a place full of gated resorts where people rarely leave the premises. The hotel is right in the middle of the little town of Cortecito and... More

We only stayed here for 3 nights, but that was enough. The boy in the reseption was so unfriendly and it was an unplesant ecspirience to check in.

A quick 4 day visit turn out to a seven day stay. Hotel staff was very accommodating. Very simple hotel, rooms were small yet perfect, bathrooms were small maybe not 100% updated but serve the purpose. Pool was clean with several chairs around it. Lots of work was being done on the premises, I think at one time this hotel... More

Friendly front desk staff. Our room could have used a facelift, but it was clean and everything worked. Poor lighting in the bathroom. Nice little balcon and very pretty pool area. Breakfast included in the price. El Cortecito is not on the beach - but across the street where you will also find good restaurants (Capitan Cook - fresh seafood)... More

We had four rooms in the hotel. Some of us didn't have warm water. The condition of the room was poor and didn't feel very clean. The breakfast was not tasty. Too bad because the staff was very nice. The beach was a thin strip without chairs.

Cortecito is very cheap, i know, but it can't be a worse place to stay. The beds are unconfortable, and you must be lucky to get hot water in the shower. Breakfast is poor and not so good. The service is awful, employees don't have an inch of empowerment and never know that to say when one is complaining. They... More

The room was dirty when we got there, stains in the tub, dirt on the floor etc. The bed was really uncomfortable/hard, I was sore from sleeping on it for two... More
