modern, relativly new or renovated. between the center and the "highway" St. Domingo - Pt. Plata. clean room, good WIFI, friendly and helpful staff. reception speaks English, restaurant small - but good - with only Spanish. no reason to stay in that town - if not for famous carnival.

This is a great small hotel in La vega. I was surprised that it was so clean and well kept. As soon as you walked in there was a smell of lavender, almost like a spa type of smell! The front desk employee was very accommodating and friendly ( cant remember his name) but anything we asked for they were... More

Simple, clean and spartan room. No hot water. Very friendly staff and new restaurant on top floor is good. Service is a bit "local", meaning a little slow, but very friendly. Price compared to the "upper end" hotels is about 1/3 of the price.

The hotel is very nice, especially, considering the price. The reception staff was very friendly and quick to respond to any requests. There were a few details that needed attention but did not detract too much from a pleasant stay. For example, upon arrival, in order to reach the main level, you must climb a set of stairs that would... More

Hot water, air conditioning in every room, flat screen TVs in every room, wifi, and a lobby that includes bottled water and a Nescafé coffee machine. What else could you possibly want?! The staff are very friendly and the rooms are cleaned daily.

This is a very nice hotel for the price of US$ 40.00 which includes Wifi and very comfortable rooms! It is the only option in La Vega City and you will not be dissapointed! We stayed 2 nights and were very happy with this place!

It is very nice and clean. FREE WIFI (very hard to find in that city). A/C works great and endless hot water. Friendly staff & great restaurant down stairs. Also, a pool table spot & a bar all in the same place. Don't have to leave the hotel if you don't want to. I stayed in a regular room (non... More

They have 2 types of room, + 1 suite. I stayed in 2 of their room type their semi suite was much better than their suite was and much cleaner. Personnel was great, there rooms: some what clean. Good stay for 2, but not the whole family. They have fridge and AC in room. That's it.

It is a very clean and safety place to stay, people are very nice you feel like if you where in your home. I want to point out, since the hotel is a beautifull hotel not to follow the picture that is showed it does not belong to the hotel, I am attaching some picture from it.

and it's not the "El Rey", it's actually "Hotel Rey". If you are looking for a small hotel outside of Santiago then I recommend the Hotel Rey. As of this date a room there goes for either $50 or $40. The only difference is a large flat screen TV in the more expensive room. The less expensive room has a... More
