We've stayed a few times at this outstanding place, first, its one hour 1/2 away from Santo Domingo, second, it's owned and managed by France's ex-president François Mitterrand's personal chef and his family, third, Playa Bonita is one of the world's most tropical and beautiful beaches, no discussion needed. Family wise it's perfect for small kids, teenagers might prefer to... More

Although it has been a long time I still remember the excellent dinner chef Gerard prepared for us. It is a nice small hotel at Playa Bonita. The beach is wonderful. It is better to avoid summer when you go there.

This place is paradise in its decor and location. Make sure you get a room facing the ocean as the others are tucked away. The water is very clean and beautiful. The food here is terrible though. Have to spend $30 on a cab just to get decent food. The menu here is staid and food tasteless. My wife got... More

The rooms in the hotel are all very tidy and all have their own flair. Everything was very fine - from the beautiful beach (take your snorkelling-equipment with you) to the smart people around the hotel, to the meals served at the restaurant. I was a bit confused that we had to pay extra for yogurt and corn flakes for... More

Simple and clean accommodation attractively situated on the aptly named Playa Bonnita. Well beaned French bourgeois families enjoy chef Gerrard's outstanding cuisine in a tropical paradise. Justifiably popular this resort caters to all from the Head of Dom Reps dubious Supreme Court to the French Ambassador.

I had two of the most amazing meals at the Hotel Atlantis. My friend and I stayed on Playa Bonita, just down the beach from the Atlantis - we asked a local where we should have dinner and he recommended the Hotel Atlantis. Wonderful bar, amazing drinks and even better food. We returned a couple nights later for another dinner... More

Interesting architecture, more reminiscent of southern Italian "trulli" than a tropical island, makes Hotel Atlantis an interesting choice. The rooms are spacious, airy, bright and very clean. Staff is very friendly, accommodating and extremely helpful with organizing ground transport and day trips. The beach is steps away, but it is a smaller beach than what you will find closer to...

Not worth the money. The food is piled onto the plate and enough on a plate to feed four people. The Steak tartare is the worst I have ever had. Tasted like capers and vinegar without a hint of steak. My fault. Eat local food is best! Service was good and the setting was great. Looks like a good hotel... More

The hotel is beautiful, however, it is located in Playa Bonita which is not a calm beach but more of a surfing beach. The restaurant staff was helpful, but the person at the reception desk was not courteous at all. It put a spot on my vacation. The staff at the restaurant was courteous and helpful. However, I don't think... More

We just had a terrible and expensive dinner at the Altantis Hotel restaurant. We decided to go due to the rave reviews and story about the chef having worked for french presidents and all... Later on we learned that the famous Chef Prystasz was not at the restaurant due to the "slow season". The setting and decor were lousy, with... More
