I have stayed here annually for a week for 8 years. I agreee with other reviews that ratings are relative to other "outside-of USA" places. For business and missions this is a very nice place to stay. Beautiful grounds. Not a resort beach, but you can spend time on the beach and swim in the warm Carribean. The pool is... More

I have been staying at this hotel for 18 years. The hotel has seen good and bad days. Currently the A/C, water, electricity is working. Breakfast is the basics. If the Hotel is full the breakfast is better. Everything is clean. The linens are well dated but clean. Staff are very friendly. No English these days. Not a vacation spot... More

Leave your America expectations and remember where you are. Hotel is an older facility but functional. Beware of the elevators. They usually broke down at least once a day but I am a stair person so this was not an issue for me. The food was excellent although the meal times seemed to be very flexible according to when the...

Rooms have broken mosquito nets, ants/bugs inside, Internet is very hit and miss. Breakfast is good at the cafe though. Beach is dirty and very sandfly infested. Very nice staff that works hard, but has little power to affect the poor situation at the hotel. Check in check out takes FOREVER as they only have one computer....oh and they dont... More

We were on a family trip in the southwest of the island and decided to stay overnight at the hotel. Excellent care and service since we call 45 minutes before arrival. I found the price a little high, but the other option was to drive 3-4 hours on a dominican highway (8pm). No hot water and the AC was not... More

This is a terrible hotel. So old that nothing works properly, elevators cant shut the doors completely; air conditioning system does not work at all and they have installed individual old ones that make a tremendous noise throughout the night; staff is rude and the electricity power keeps going on and off, during my one night stay (there were suppose...

I was driving pass the resort and noted that the Canadian flag was upside down. Most people from other countries may not know which way the red leaf is suppose to be positioned. I stopped and went into the beautiful lobby and through a Spanish interpretor was able to express my observation. We asked permission to view the resort and... More

This hotel is right next to the beach and it's a very nice and pretty beach. My room was not bad, but the bathroom was not very clean. The beds were a bit on the uncomfortable side. The AC was super loud so maybe bring ear plugs if you're a light sleeper like me. Most importantly, make sure you spray... More

Don't expect a 5 star hotel and you won't be disappointed. Recently stayed there two nights. It is definitely the nicest place in Barahona and I'm thankful for it. Staff is friendly and attentive. Breakfast bar is good for the Dominican Republic. We wanted to eat dinner there as well but the music blaring in the restaurant made us decide... More

I have stayed here several times and always find it clean, modern, and the staff very helpful and pleasant. It is an American style hotel because it is owned by an American who spends a great deal of time and money making in modern and comfortable by those standards. Many of the medical teams in the area on missions stay... More
