Beautiful place, lots of nature and very up to date rooms, little expensive. The food is very good. The only thing i didn't like is the locals flock specially in the pool,if you like water activities, nature then this is the place.

My son & his girlfriend are visiting me in the DR and I wanted them to see more of this very beautiful country. We rented a car and drove from the North Coast to Jarabacoa, where I had visited a long time ago. The Jarabacoa River Club & Resort is very Dominican, which is to say it's a little bit... 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. They warm water never... More

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.
