We just returned from El Marinique and had a lovely time. Nicole is a pleasant host and most helpful with whatever your needs may be. The apartment with the loft bed is comfortable, clean and roomy. It has a kitchen with a refrigerator and stove if you prefer to cook but the restaurant is just steps away. The bathroom is... More

I appologize for my late review. Crazy winter! Nicole has a fantastic spot in Las Galeras. Clean, well kept, wonderful landscaping and view, great service and fantastic food, all at more than reasonable prices. If you want a place to simply be, this is your spot. Quiet. Action only a few minutes walk away if you want it. Wonderful beach... More

For what I experience...Simple meaning, only the basics and clean obviously clean room and clean sheets. I loved the garden. I hated the cat piss smell (I saw 3 cats around) An amazing view.

Perfectly tucked away in a quiet spot away from the noise of town, El Marinique is a beautiful paradise. From the open air restaurant to the chairs in the garden (and your balcony if you are staying in one of the apartments), you can almost not go anywhere on the premises without enjoying a peaceful view of the ocean. Everything... More

Hi! What I like most about the El Marinique is that it's very quiet and comfortable. It has a beautiful view of the ocean. It is within walking distance to the center of town but you don't have the noise associated to traffic (mainly small motorcycles) because it's a death end. If you need anything, just ask Nicole and she... More

Let me get this out of the way first. To each his own, one man’s pleasure is another person’s poison, blah blah. You get the idea. That is, my opinion will differ from the vast majority of the reviews in TripAdvisor. Personally, I’m accustomed to more luxurious hotels, or at least (real) 3 or 4 star hotels with many creature...

The room was clean and very comfortable. Nicole was extremely helpful and responsive when answering all of our questions by e-mail prior to the trip. The location is ideal with an ocean view and within easy walking distance to both the beach and the center of Las Galeras; however, it still remains a peaceful oasis away from the loud music...

The hotel is close enough to the town that one can walk to everything, a rather short distance, actually. Also, the hotel removed enough so the typical, very loud music prevailing all over DR cannot be heard. Added bonus: its location cuts down to zero the number of walking services peddlers. So, "convenient privacy" is the operating term here. We... More

Our first visit to the Dominican Republic was in March, 2014. We had our itinerary and reservations made for a nearly three-week stay. About half-way through our trip we visited Las Galeras for two days, after which we did not want to leave such a beautiful, off-the-beaten path, gloriously peaceful place. We decided to see if we could find a... More
