I stayed there just for 1 night, here is why: 1)Water has a really bad smell (yes, the one you use to brush your teeth) 2) AC didn't work properly, 3) food didn't have any taste as if it was frozen for years. 4) No hot water After that we just moved to another hotel.

I stayed here last year for 3nights with my husband and it was OK. It was decent for what you pay. I probably wouldnt recommend this is you're looking for luxury( try Marbella, Dreams Romana or Bahia Principe for that) or amazing food. The food was a 2/5 but the workers are super friendly. The beach here is amazing and... More

Good hotel, good service, excellent staff, convenient location close to Santo Domingo, Airport and other attractions in the East Coast of DR like Bayahibe, Isla Saona, Cueva de Las Maravillas. We usually stay here on trips back to our country as a family. Sadly I was told that it will be sold and closed down by April.

We missed the reservation (French food) on 1st day ; so next day was Dominican. Food was ok, beach towel system is limited, pick up at... More

When i arrived to the hotel everything looked beautiful. The lobby, the grounds and the modern bathrooms was so pretty. So i went to check in thats when the problem started. The Receptionist was very rude. We ask her if we can change our room she said no because all the rooms are assigned. I thought that was odd. So... More
