I have stayed there twice now. I usually stay at one of the expensive resorts when I am traveling with friends. But, I decided to travel alone, and found this place online. I asked my Dominican friends to check on it, and they told me if was good.
I am a single female, so safety was an issue for me. I felt very safe, there was always someone around at night, and they would never allow anyone to go to my room. they would call me to come get the person. If I was outside at night the watchman would keep me company. The staff was friendly, but they did not change the linens, they just make up the beds. You have to ask them to do it. I would compare it to a motel in the states. The rooms are large, and I always got a room with an ocean view. I did eat breakfast there everyday, It was simple and good. I would sometimes eat lunch and dinner, which they went to a nearby restaurant to pick up. The food was good. If you want to stay in the city and be around the people, this is the best place to go. I was able to see all my Dominican friends, the resorts are gated and you have to leave to experience the culture and people.
