“Good location and exterior, disappointing interior”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2012

Having stayed at several hotels all over the island, my expectations weren't that high of this hotel but I was nonetheless disappointed. The exterior is beautiful, lots of wood went into the construction and the grounds are very well kept. However, the interior was nothing to write home about. I was on a third floor room with an interior "staircase" to get up to the second room. The stairs were more like a ladder they were so steep and the stairs extremely narrow. Quite dangerous if you decided to go down to the washroom at night. The kitchen is only accessible thru the balcony or over a counter that divides it from the rest of the room, not too useful when you've got the a/c on to keep the place cool. The A/C worked well but was quite noisy. And since I paid extra, I had a/c and "hot" water. The water was at best lukewarm and the shower tiny with the curtain rod held up by a chain tied to the roof. If you pulled just a tad too hard, one side would come off and the curtain would slip off. One morning there was no water and when informed, the manager almost rudely informed us that he was aware of the problem and was waiting for the technician. The upstairs bed (Queen or King) was comfortable but the 2 twins on the first floor were very soft and you could feel the springs in some places. Location-wise, it's quite good, located behind a plaza that's right across the street from the beach. No beach chairs there though so either sit on your towel in the sun or walk down to the right about 400-500m and rent one. For dinner, definitely go to Restaurante La Yuca. Great pizza, good pasta and very nice service.

So overall, it was ok for a short weekend stay but I wouldn't have spent a longer period there. For someone looking for a less expensive option and doesn't mind the abovementioned details, then go ahead.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a screen on the balcony to limit the mosquitoes that can get in. Different room...

This hotel is situated on the main street of Las Terrenas. Its very close to the beach (2 minutes walk). I stayed there during High Season (Holly Week) and the Hotel was quiet. The staff is very friendly and respectful. My room had a little kitchen and it was fully equiped. The hotel is not beachfront but it has a nice pool. Close to the hotel you can find nice stores, boulangeries and minimarkets. The area is sometimes busy but its safe. Finally what I can tell you is that in Terrenas you can find frontbeach exclusive hotels but in a higher price. If you want to save some cash or if you simply don't need to be in the most trendy hotel of the area, this is the place for you.

The place is great. It is in the heart of the Las Terrenas, not really very touristic place, but with great opportunities to enjoy the vacations. The hotel, ok say Apart hotel is great. just great for people who do not want to wake on time for breakfast, for people who like freedom. The shops are near, so you can use fully equipped kitchen, the beach is just 100m away, swimingpool just on the site ;;)) WOuld go back again.
