We came here as it was recommended by a well established local real estate agent. The location itself is well worth the money. Like most visiting from the States we traveled here from Las Americas Airport. To say that we were not very impressed with the drive or at first look, with the town is an understatement. Don’t get me wrong, we went out the following morning and discovered a town full of activity, friendly people and hundreds of stops. We were pleasantly surprised with the hotel's proximity to everything in town and more so with the beach, number of restaurants and clubs within an easy walking distance. The hotel is very quiet and even for the location (a sea of motor-conchas (Mopeds) zipping-by) this is not a factor, not even while sitting at the poll. The rooms are very clean and the studio setting with the front kitchen/sitting room divided by a door to the bedroom makes it perfect for entertaining. Our room had a very nice sitting balcony facing the pool and partially the ocean, which was helpful on the one day it rained. Service was always available and would even make store runs (for ice/beer/groceries) if you need it. We did not use this service but noticed other visiting guests who did. To compliment, their breakfast was really good and healthy. If there is one complaint is that it stops at 10:00 a.m. On average this might be o.k. but after all, you are in the D.R. and you will stay out late, so while it may seem that 09:00 a.m. is late to get up for breakfast, trust me, it will come up on you earlier than you wish. My only drawback was that not been familiar with Las Terrenas and driving conditions, we prepaid for the entire stayed. In reality we should have booked up to the day before our flight out of Las Americas and since our stayed was pre-paid we could not get a refund on the last night. At the last minute we made reservations in Santo Domingo and forfeited the last evening. In retrospect we should have made plans to stay in Santo Domingo the last evening on our trip. Would not recommend doing otherwise since traveling to and from Las Terrenas and Santo Domingo can be a hard drive depending on how good of a time you might have had. We stopped for fuel right before the last toll-booth and went in for a quick snack. This was a big time surprise. This gas station/restaurant/liquor store is a well known weekend locals spot. It has a Famous Dave’s style BBQ and smoked ovens. We had a huge BBQ meal consisting of BBQ ribs, rabbit, cabrito (goat) and side dishes (rice and beans, sweet potatoes, fried plantain (tostones), baked onions, desserts and drinks for less than $30.00. Their bathroom were very clean and is a self service gas station so if you just want the fuel you don’t even have to get out of car. Highly recommend stopping here if hungry.
