This place is absolutely perfect. From the setting, to the rooms, to the food but it seems like everything else works for them too- the weather, although fickle, was even majestic. However, it's the staff that will bring you back. They are the sweetest, most genuine, most professional you'll meet. If you're hesitating on whether or not to go to... More

There is not much that I can add to the previous reviews, but I feel it is important to give this place another nod of approval. This truly hidden place is simply wonderful. As a 61 year old woman I travel a lot and spoil myself by staying in very nice places. I do a lot of research before my... More

We spent eight nights at The Peninsula House and would have been happy if it had been eight years. It's more a guest house than a hotel. The landscaping is magnificent, the food spectacular and the rooms large, comfortable and substantial in every way. Elegance, warmth, privacy and intimacy are the qualities that come to mind throughout. In some ways... More

We stayed only one night - immediately upon arrival one notices every last detail no expense has been spared - unlinke other DR accommodations we experienced. - Tip- after we were already in DR we found out you can avoid the 2 hr drive to and from Santo Airport (and it is 2 hours not 1.5 hours like the hotel...

This place is simply amazing - given the reviews, we went in with high expectations and unbelievably, they exceeded it in every way. If you can afford it, look no further and if you cannot afford it (yet), save until you can! The views (spectacular), the service (impeccable and yet so gracious) and the food (very good and they are... More

I stayed at The Peninsula House twice -- initially for two nights over the American Thanksgiving holidays in 2011 -- and then returned for a brief honeymoon in the spring of 2013 and again the following December. That, in itself, says how enchanting this hotel is; my now-husband, then-fiancé, and I couldn't imagine a more beautiful place to celebrate. The... More

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
