“Horrible place”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

This place is over price. The hotel rooms have no hot water, dark hall ways, the music from the first floor club goes up to the 5th floor until 6:00 a.m every day! The food is ok, however, room service is horrible. The Casino is ok, with daily live band in the casino! :(. The only thing coming up is the private club on the 4th floor for single men.

Room Tip: If anything, choose the 6th floor. The music does not go up there.

Deserved a $45 daily room rate. $80 was too much for a hotel that did not supply one drop of hot water and was an old hotel under repair. The location showing on the reservation site was totally misleading and no directions nor email response to a request for directions was provided. How I ended up finding it was the result of a local I stopped on the street 15 miles away who led me to the place on the other side of town.

Although Aurora Del Sol is not too big of a place, however, a staying there is definitely worth it. This paradise is located in the heart of Santo-Domingo (the capital), and it features a nice casino, a gorgeous disco, and a friendly staff that days and nights take good care of customers. Here is a short list of the people that comprise the dedicated staff: José (front desk), Emile (bar & restaurant), jamie Delgado (food & beverages), beauteful Nikaury Rosario (disco), Johnny Arrango (assistant manager), Diomi German (General manager) etc.

Room Tip: Rooms on the opposite side of the disco are quieter

Stay away from this place, the WORST. I checked in, walked to the room and walked right back to the front desk to check out. I never put my bags down. Carpet was very dirty and nasty along with the bed & furniture.
the room had a bed smell. To make matters worst I had to pay for that night. Now I know better Aurora Del Sol Hotel & Casino.
The people that wrote good reviews about this hotel must be related to the owner.....STAY AWAY

Rooms are not bad but not excellent. What really impressed me was how friendly and helpful the staff was. Hard to beat
