This is a good value B&B in a nice location, but the hosts were extremely uptight about relatively small issues.; swinging on the swing-bed, moving the fans around in our two rooms. Esther seemed so unconcerned when I told her that my daughter had received an electric shock from one of the fans, that I repeated it as I thought... More

We stayed here for 5 great nights. The breakfast was delicious with plenty of food to choose. Great location, 5 minutes walk to the beach while still being a little bit away from the noise of the main street. It was great too to hang around in their spacious garden without going out whole day. Definitely want to come back... More

I stayed for a week with my partner at Sol Azul. Most people we bumped in to were very jealous it was where we were staying - they were right to be. The hosts are brilliant, and being Swiss speak most European languages and offer European levels of service. They are extremely well equipped with knowledge about the local area... More

My boyfriend and me had a fantastic stay at Sol Azul. All the information you see on the official website is correct! Esther and Pierre are great hosts. They are always willing to answer questions and give advice. The bungalows certainly had a romantic touch and some very nice details. Shower and toilets worked great (which is not always the...

We were planning on staying two nights; we changed our travel plans and stayed one more. Beautiful four cabins built in the native Dominican style (wood, palm trees, ocre colors...) with exquisite carpentry. The garden was beautiful with a variety of tropical plants and tree very tastefully arranged. There two gazebos with a comfortable swing-bed to relax and read. The... More

Mu husband and I were desperatly looking for a place to stay at Las Galeras. We passed by Sol Azul and inquiered about a room.Thanks God, they had one available. The bed and breakfast can simply be describead as peaceful, calm, cozzy and very welcoming. It is located very close from las Galeras, so restaurants are only at walking distance!

A terrific home away from home. Everything about this location was thought out and carefully arranged. Our accommodations were comfortable and spacious. There was even a mosquito net for our bed with mosquito coils in the corner of the room. The grounds are meticulously cared for by the owners and offered a pool, covered benches for meals and games, and... More

I recently traveled to the DR with three companions and we each stayed 2 to a bungalow. We were all extremely happy with our accommodations, and should we ever return to Las Galeras we will absolutely be booking a room here again. The French-Swiss couple who run Sol Azul were incredibly hospitable, and the grounds of the hotel/B&B are immaculate.... More
