Beautiful, quiet place. The garden is gorgeous and you feel like you are entering a secluded little paradise. The room was clean and really nice. The hotel is in a great location, very close to the beach and all the restaurants and bars. We decided to have dinner at the hotel on our second and last night: everything was delicious,... More

This hotel was fantastic!!! The owner and staff were extremely friendly, and bent over backwards to make our stay enjoyable. The villas, public places, and pool, were exceptionally clean. Breakfast was included in the price, and the food was delicious and prepared as requested. I wouldn't hesitate to come back here again

Six stars aren't enough for this lovely little hotel. Rooms with lofts have been lovingly designed and decorated. Gardens are lush and inviting. Pool is divine. Breakfast to die for and wonderful little restaurant. Best of all is the amazing customer service. Could not have felt more welcome and well looked after. Seriously wish we could have stayed more than... More

Good morning and thank you for taking the time to write a comment on our hotel. That said I think you're very disrespectful of the great majority of our guests. You can not afford to say that given your experience in other hotels can give an "honest" judgment, implying that other clients (95%) are liars or do not have your... More

We arrived at night and were immediately charmed by the beautifully landscaped tropical garden. Our room, set in a 2 room bungalow, was also attractive and arranged as a small loft with a double bed on the ground level and 3 single beds on the higher level. It had a minimalist but quaint and airy deco and lots of privacy... More

We stayed 3 nights there and I'm quite suprised by the previous bad review. It seems that we didn't stay in the same hotel! This hotel is very clean, rooms are simple but confortable. It's very peaceful, charming, in a quiet area, just two minuts walk from the center of Las Terrenas. Breakfast is very good, the food in the... More

Hi, thanks for taking time to write a comment. Your problem was the different gear Euro US $ which seemed you understood. We posted prices in US $ then if the euro loses 25% on US $, we can not be responsible. If that were the case I would be brooker and not manager of hotels. All the rest of... More

I needed to book 1 night since we couldn't get into our resort. I reviewed the comments and it sounded like a nice little place. I have high expectations, so I should have not gone below a 4 star. Our bed cover was full of cigarette burns and it looked like it hadn't seen a washing machine in a long... More

Hi, thanks for taking the time to comment on our hotel. Despite the prohibition of smoking in the rooms sometimes customers do not pay attention and may happen that there are cigarette burns.

We stayed for three nights in this hotel in Las Terrenas. It was kind of difficult to find (googlemaps gave wrong directions) but Mauricio was very helpful in guiding us there by the phone. If you don't have a local phone with you when you are going there though email or call ahead to get the right directions. The bungalow... More

Three couples and we spent three nights at La Tortuga. The lush garden setting with pool is a great place for R&R. We would spend a few hours there after breakfast before heading to beach. Rooms had a queen sized double bed and the 2 or 3 twins in an upstairs loft. Nicely decorated with a/c and ceiling fan. Dont... More
