Beautiful view, very quiet place and nice people! Gigi has very welcomed us during our stay. The studios are very comfortable and the diner at the restaurant was delicious. The beach is just near the hotel. Perfect!

He cooked for us the la night We were there and I wanted to stay more days but couldn't. I hope that by the time I go back the renovations are all... More

I stayed with my wife and my daughter in El Quemaito during the first week of November and we really enjoyed it. The rooms are very clean, the swimming pool is fantastic (my daughter enjoyed it a lot) and the gardens are very nice. Gigi (or Mr. Gigi, as my daugther called him) is a wonderful host and an excellent... More

Beautiful location, very attentive owner and property undergoing significant upgrades. The owner fixed a lovely dinner for our group of 6 and it was spectacular beside the pool. Grounds have wonderful vantage view over the ocean.

This place was amazing! Driving through the Dominican countryside was beautiful but I was left with the impression that accommodations would be rather rustic. Hotel El Quemaito was anything but! The rooms were perfect, and much closer in style and furnishing to hotels of southern France or Italy than anything I have seen in Latin America. The property was beautiful,... More

This hotel is not very accomodating. There is no hot water, air conditioners(old and outdated along with dust and mildew) that don't work most of the time,no internet in the rooms, and showers that have no doors. The room he gave us for the night had all the above problems along with no power for the entire night we were... More

Ladies and Gentleman, and finally arrived the 4th review from the same family. After the rude and unpolite father and mother and the previous review from Mrs. Bella, the girlfied of this other man, this is the last one we were waiting from people who stayed in the hotel 11 hours only. We never saw a so disrespectful people who... More

The owner of this place will intentionally give rooms to guests just to get money when the majority of the rooms have air conditioners that don't work. Not only that, there is no internet in the rooms and no hot water. Mosquitos bit me and the others who stayed at this hot oven of a hotel once the lights went... More

Your review is like the previous ones coming from your family. After your father and mother's bad reviews, now the yours. Just your boyfriend's review is missing now. Your family stayed in our hotel just 11 hours, from 7pm to 6am in the morning, you used any of our service, no restaurant, no swimming pool, no massages. You checked the... More

I do not know how the hotel has this many stars. Management is clearly behind these good reviews. We paid over 128 dollars (one night stay) for a dumpy experience. We arrived at about 7pm, and waited over an hour for the room to be prepared. We went to the restaurant and sat down, but after we looked at the... More

Dear Sir, yes, it is true, your room had a small problem in the electricity brake so air conditioner and hot water boiler stopped to work. But you was so stupid to wait till the morning instead of alert us immediately. We had one more room availble to solve your problem in few minutes. When I met you the next... More

Bad service, bad and expensive food, only one waiter for 50 people, one tiny air conditioner for a big room. rooms are ok to stay the night but no more. You can try other near by hotels in the area for the same price and expect better service.

Hi Juan, our rooms are among the best in the whole Barahona and the it is enough to look at the tons of photos available online. You are writing bad comments everywhere about our hotel just because we were fully booked and there were any table for your majesty in the restaurant. Because you are not better than other clients...

This property has a beautiful location above cliffs looking out to sea. But there the charm ends. Our group arrived after dark and chaos ensued as the staff moved us from room to room to find the right configuration of beds. Large bare rooms were comfortable but a bit bleak, not helped by the occasional mosquito. It was in the... More
