The stay at Gille's was great! I'm a big fan a great hotels or bed and breakfast in the Carribean e.g., the Viceroy, GeeJam, Strawberry Hill, Norse Point, and I am happy to add to the list Casa de Gilles in the D.R. A true bed and breakfast, the house had great taste, beautiful views, the staff as well as... More

This property may seem far from the main road, but that's a great quality. It provides a fantastic view, the best spot for sunrises and quiet. Awesome communal space and the pool! Gilles has solid advice for spots in the area and has hired the friendliest staff, especially Josef. Oh and delicious breakfast!

We initially weren't sure about the place because it is not in the town, but we choose it because we had our dog with us, and Gilles accepted it. The house is amazing. Gilles shares it with his guests. He rent just 4 rooms, so there is a good atmosphere, doesn't feel crowded. You can use his kitchen, salon, etc.... More

This place is just gorgeous!!!!! For us it was worth renting a car in order to stay here. It was great to wake up in the morning and have a delicious breakfast with warm baguettes, fresh fruit, fresh fruit juice, coffee, a variety of cheeses, and eggs. Gilles, the owner and designer of this beautiful place, was a great host... More

We spent 3 nights there in early July and had the best experience. (note: you will need a car as this B&B is not in town). The view spans the entire (beautiful) coast; the well designed infinity pool allows you to enjoy it even while swimming. Gilles and his staff are exceptionally welcoming and you feel you are visiting a... More

I took my girlfriend to Casa de Gilles for 4 nights in April and had such a romantic, relaxing, and 5-star experience, we went back for another 4 nights in mid-May. Gilles, the owner, a former fashion photographer from France, uses his exquisite taste in art, architecture, food and music to make your stay unforgettable. He’s a gracious and fascinating... More
