Do not want to repeat what has been said, so I will keep it brief. Pros: Great staff, Elizabeth is the best. Small pool, but never crowded. Clean rooms. Nice view. Cons. The area-it has a Daytona Beach feel, many hotels and stands, especially as you are closer to the Park. Beautiful beaches but crowded and many people asking you... More

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon and we loved the area but the hotel wasn't what I expected after reading the reviews. Pros: We loved the food! I am not sure why some people had bad experiences with the food but we didn't. We had the honeymoon package so all our dinners were included. The first night... More

We spent our 25th anniversary at Issimo in February, and could not have been more pleased. On or arrival we were surprised to find that our room had been upgraded to the royal suite.

Let me begin by saying that we chose this hotel solely on the basis of the reviews on this website. My wife and I stayed for four nights on our honeymoon. We had previously stayed at another boutique shotel just south of Domincal for three nights where the food was impeccable and inexpensive. Needless to say we thought to ourselves... More

Stayed at Issimo Suites over Christmas. We had Penthouse Suite #1. Such a gorgeous view - one side rainforest, one side ocean. Floor to ceiling windows - out of this world! Bathroom etc is part of the room, but screened off from main bedroom - as long as you are not on full view - what is the problem of... More

This hotel is incredible if you want to have a relaxing, romantic with a view that gives the feel of being in a tree house. Every room is different and each has their own special qualities. Suite 1 and 2 have the best views (we stayed in suite 1) of all the rooms because the view is the least obstructed... More

My husband & I stayed at Issimo Suites for only 2 nights (regretably) but we will definitely be back. From the time we arrived the staff was attentive to our every need. We were upgraded to a penthouse suite which was amazing!! We loved the all glass windows looking out to the beautiful view of ocean & forest. Monkeys came... More

We could not have been more pleased with Issimo Suites. The hotel is about 4 years old, so everything is new and clean. Check out the website for pictures of their suites, they are actually better in person. The location is perfect, great view, and set in the jungle. We had monkeys that came by every evening and a sloth... More

We stayed at Issimo Suites Jan. 27-30 for 3 nights. We got a great room on the main floor overlooking the jungle and ocean with a huge private balcony, jacuzzi, king-size bed and all the amenities. The room also was huge, clean, and very nicely decorated. Wall mounted air conditioning kept it cool amidst the hot humid weather, all controlled... More

We stayed at Issimo for 4 days during our Honeymoon. The staff were very nice and the hotel is beautiful. We got upgraded to the Presidential suite which was amazing! Outdoor jacuzzi, private pool, wrap around terrace etc. Needless to say we ordered most of our meals to the room! Only two drawbacks we had was 1. The horrible horrible... More
