Dear Matthias H:
Thank you for your review and your candid comments about your experience at our property. Our staff works very hard tto make all of our guests feel welcomed. At the same time, we occasionally disappoint our customers and we do apologize that the dinner did not meet your expectations, and we will discuss that with our Food and Beverage team. Also, we would like to let you know that the filtration issues that caused the pool to look cloudy has been corrected and our pool is now funcitoning at 100%.

Thank you for your visit and the time you took to write. We will correct the deficiencies noted and hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back at some time in the future to see the improvements we have made.

Kind regards,
irene

I have stayed at the Veneto Beach hotel twice this year.It is situated in Otra Banda, is centrally located and has a casino and franchised restaurant.The Rif fort, WTC and airport are nearby. While there is ample parking, it is not reserved. Aside from the main hotel there are also cabanas across the private beach to the hotel.

Booking in person when arriving at the hotel is cheaper than booking online.The rooms are clean and well furnished. They are, however, not as well appointed as the Renaissance hotel or Marriott. While the rooms are serviced daily, the staff are generally difficult to get hold off. Complaints are dealt with, eventually.

If you are looking for an affordable hotel with a decent location and beautiful private beach then this hotel is for you. If , however, you are looking for a luxurious hotel, good dining and 5 star service then I would recommend you look elsewhere.

I stayed at the HBH for a month and I would recommend paying a little more and going somewhere else! The hotel room was musty and the bathroom smelled like I had my face in a dirty urinal...it was nauseating actually. I was greeted by several cockroaches during my night time restroom visit. Horrible water pressure and alternating scalding/freezing water made for an interesting showering experience:) I wore sandals around the room...If you want to relax and not feel disgusting in your hotel room then stay somewhere else.

extremely noisy air conditioner, water in shower would not close and ran for hours, phone did not work-no oter roomns available and I was told handyman went home and it was too late
( i truly wonder how does such a miserable stay in business?) you think I would eb offered a free drink or voucher for future or something or whatever - front desk tried to be helpful
Lobby was depressing with half of the lights not working
Pool and outdoor space is decent and gym will do

Room Tip: stay only if this is the only room left on teh ISland on a dark a nd stormy night

The hotel has everything you would need for a nice stay on the island, it's clean, safe, nicely located and has a good beach.
HOWEVER...
It's also true that the place has seen better days, the carpets in the corridors are dingy to say the least, it needs more care... the staff were ok... not overly attentive, sometimes even lazy but were never rude or impolite. The beach need to be cleaned... too many cigarrette butts all over the place, it's a smokers paradise!!!!... the breakfast buffet was ridiculously over priced but the rest of the meals were a good price/quality deal.
All in all... i enjoyed it but i wouldn't repeat it just yet....

Room Tip: make SURE to book a non-smoking room... yes, they still have that option....

Due to circumstance beyond control, spent the last week at this hotel. Similar to a "Holiday Inn" but not the same. All rooms access the center Activity area, witch is breezy and pleasant with a large pool and plenty of tables and seating area to socialize and have a drink with friends. But if you want the the beach and the beautiful Caribbean less than a 20 second walk to that beach. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They can arrange just about everything for you. The casino is not like a "Vegas" casino, more like an "internet" casino..but still fun.

Room Tip: When using a cab..ask the person who called the cab, "What is the fair and average fare for goi...
