From the secret hidden address not even a gps found, to frette towels and linens, baccarat crystal and beautiful china to impeccable service The Peninsula House is a gem in the Dominican Republic. For those able to get to this beautiful place enjoy every moment of your stay.

I've stayed at many small, highly rated B&Bs and had great experiences. I've also stayed at very fancy, much more expensive hotels. This one stands out as by far the best experience I've had and I've been trying to figure out why. I think it is, in the end, the people - they are really warm and inviting, making the... More

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at the Peninsula House. It is hard to find and a bit of a haul from Santo Domingo, so it is worthwhile to fly into the La Semana airport if you can. The house itself is beautifully appointed with antiques and charming finishes. Every room is nice, but I would recommend the... More

I am not sure where to begin in describing our amazing stay. Very rarely does a property outshine what you see when looking online and at professional photographs. As you can see on the website for the inn, the decor, ambience and attention to detail looks fantastic. However, in person, we realized that to be there and feel the charm... More

Forget the dry and touristic area of Punta Cana and visit the capital Santo Domingo – take good care of your belonging and don’t wear jewels, we were robbed – and travel thru the Island to the Samana peninsula. Beautiful landscape and beaches. Hire a car and enjoy the mountains and the national park Los Haitises. Where to stay? If... More

We had heard good things about this House/Inn while in the country and understood it was a great place to relax and recharge. We had trouble finding it since there weren't any signs leading you to this exclusive location, but one phone call, and we had someone drive into town to lead us to the House. What hotel will come...

The Peninsula House is such a great find. It is the perfect combination of comfort and elegance, without any pretension. It is small, yet feels wonderfully grand. The House, along with the furnishings are truly amazing. Everywhere you look, there is something well crafted, well chosen and well placed. It all blends seemlessly to make for an intoxicating break from... More

My husband and I have had the great good fortune to visit this property twice, mostly recently over New Year's holiday. This is a place that remains with you long after you have departed -- the sounds, views, terrific food, and great conversation. You can choose to interact with the other guests or not, as you like.

I felt all my concerns melt away as we drove up to the front of the house. Greeted by the owners even though we were late arriving, a sumptuous dinner was laid out before us on a collection of beautiful china. Our room was stunning and the bed allowed us to drift happily off to sleep. The remainder of our... More
