Did not want to go all inclusive, and found this great hotel at a great price. Booked though the internet and paid £35 per night for a large room, with two small double beds and a lovely balcony overlooking the gardens. The hotel has a faded grandeur about it, and looked like it once aspired to greater things. But the... More

Following my husband's advice, we headed out to find this 'amazing place' . We arrived in the early evening, and the sun was still out. Well... the lobby was dark and foreboding. The staff was much too casual. We were handed a key and told to go check the $60 per day room. 'Go behind the pool, the building to... More

If your on a budget and want to stay in a no-frills place, this place will suffice. Since we were traveling to several areas and not sure how many nights we needed, decided to stay at El Cortecito Inn instead of staying in one of the resorts. Check-in was easy, the manager was friendly, the place looked clean and a... More

My husband and I have stayed couple of times at this hotel. It is right across the beach (150 mts). It is very inexpensive and if you just want to get to know punta cana and spend most of the day at the beach you can save a couple of bucks by staying here. However, this hotel is defintely not...

Cortecito is a friendly, funky little village. The Cortecito Inn is in a park like setting with extremely high security around the clock. Not directly on the beach, though. Our room was kind of average but inexpensive. Staff was friendly and helpful and the included breakfast was nothing short of outstanding! All the fresh mango and pineapple juice you care... More

We drove into town and, on Lonely Planet's guidebook suggestion, inquired at the El Cortecito. We were shown rooms that were in the process of being cleaned and rooms that had no toilet seats. Finally, we found acceptable rooms and settled in. We were quoted one price by the surely night clerk and given a better rate by the day... More

We arrived at this hotel, reservation ready, prepared to stay the night. The price we had been quoted when I called was $55/night, When they arrived, they gave us a higher price, and told us that for an exhorbitant charge, they would be pleased to take us to the airport the next day. They showed us a 1st room, which... More

The Cortecito Inn is right in the center of Cortecito, a nice village in the Bavaro/Punta Cana area. The hotel is composed of 5 two-storey buildings nested in a beautiful garden, and around a small but pleasant swimming pool. It is not right on the beach (which is very beautiful). But the beach is just a few steps away, on... More
