One of our favorite places to stay in the DR. Beautiful clean rooms with an amazing view. Wonderful pool, and great restaurant. There is really not much around the hotel to do, so plan on staying nearby. They do have trails, bikes, etc for use (maybe even surf boards?). Will take you down to the beach, and pick you back...

Upon our arrival, we were enchanted by the breathtaking view and how charming the hotel looked. The rooms were small but cozy and romantic. The food though was completely disappointing, if not to say nasty and expensive. This ruined the whole experience since there is nothing else to eat for miles and miles. For dinner, we ordered both entrees and... More

Beautiful location, fantastic food, fabulous views of the Caribbean. The rooms are very tranquil and 'natural', great views from the balcony. The service was outstanding on all levels. Only complaint is that there are endless staircases to the rooms, and no railings. Not easy for anyone with knee or hip issues.

The rocky approach road to this hotel is definitely off putting but once you climb to the top of the hill and enter the outside space of this hotel you will be rewarded. The best view of the ocean and tropical forest outside your room with a wrap around swimming pool.Private balcony in every room with great bathroom and furnishings.... More

This place is beautiful, with breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea and the Mountains of Barahona .. Is simple but very tastefully done with cabana style rooms and balconies looking at the ocean .

This is a very intimate hotel. The views to the mountain and the ocean are terrific. Honeymooners and couples will enjoy this hotel a lot. Also, you can make differents tours and excursions in that beautiful part of Dominican Republic.

Pros: Views from the pool Public areas Cons: -Overpriced (we paid around $400 which left us feeling totally ripped off. If one if paying around $200-250 it's fine) rooms: Small, cramped rooms.
