My husband and I stayed here for a couple of days before and after a long hike in the mountains. The staff was very friendly, attentive, and a few spoke some english which was very helpful. The rooms are nice and well maintained for the area. The food in the restaurant was good and the wait staff was very helpful.... More

Only beauty about this place is the views and the river, the rest is terrible. The service is bad, we stayed one night and I had to call more than 4 time to inquire about warm not even hot but warm water. Remember you are up in the mountains and it can be a little chilly.

I recently took my family to Jarabacoa River Club and Resort in Jarabacoa, Dominican Republic and we had a GREAT time! I would recommend it to people who like to have fun and enjoy nature at the same time! The food was great and so was the overall service (rooms/pools/river) etc! Thanks Jarabacoa River Club for a GREAT experience!!! -yadires

The town of Jarabaco is full of real DR life. Not too touristy, although there are some touristy things to do: zip lines, river activities, horse back riding, hiking, etc. I would not stay in the town....it's SUPER noisey with honking motorcycles. The setting of the Jarabaco River Club is ideal with the river next to the pools and restaurants.... More

There is so much more a good management could make of this property, beautifully located along a mountain river but the service is poor, the restaurant food mediocre and the breakfast is absolutely lousy.

Las Guazaras, a nearby resort, was fully booked so we stopped at JRC, a couple of miles before. A lovely girl at the reception asked us for our preferred meal plan and then we sat in the armchairs waiting for the room to be ready.

An hour bus ride from the airport brought us to this very nice resort in the mountains of the Dominican Republic. The cost was reasonable and the service excellent. We did a whitewater raft trip and toured an organic coffee plantation set up to support a local K-12 school. The rooms are clean and equipped with modern amenities. Not too... More

My family (spouse and two children) traveled here in June 2013. Surprised that it was pretty empty. Grounds were very well kept and the place was stunning. Service was outstanding. Anything we needed was provided, and often anticipated. Would love to return and raaft again!
