“Excellent value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

We were quite pleased with our accommodations at La Residencia del Paseo. The rooms were quite large and, although not up to 4 star standards, clean and inviting.

The property is located adjacent to a pleasant little plaza which features everything from clothing stores to restaurants. We had wonderful Dominican cafe con leche there every morning.

The beach is across the street, and there are good restaurants all along the main drag.

We stayed here 2 days, and would definitely return

I had a great time at establishment. I has a perfect location. The pictures of this site do no justice for the interior backyard. For the price and location this is isa good place. Definently will be staying here again.

Hotel Residencia Paseo is conveniently located but not located on Calle Duarte as stated. We drove on Calle Duarte but couldn't find it. It's actually located on another street that I can't remember (we drove around and just stumbled upon the hotel). When we asked the receptionist about this, she acknowledged this and said that Las Terranas is crazy that way. She only spoke Spanish but she was nice and gave us a "better room". However, the "better room" was dirty. There was hair on the bathroom floor and everything was old and outdated. The room was like a loft; you had to take narrow stairs to get to the bed. This might be ok for some people but I'm a bit clumsy and the stairs are a bit narrow. What if you have to use the toilet at night? The pool did look nice and the receptionist was friendly. We were only there for one night so didn't make a big deal about the state of the room but I definitely wouldn't return there. As others have said, its a nice exterior and convenient location but the rooms are just not worth staying in. I would look elsewhere.

I was very pleased with everything except the bathroom. The property is gorgeous and has a swimming pool. The location is great- about a block from the beach and in the center of town close to restaurants, shops, and tour operators. The room we had was complete with a fridge, stove, dishes, and sink and had a balcony covered with a screen so bugs don't get in. But, the bathroom was not as clean as I would've liked it to be- it looked like someone did try to clean it but didn't put any effort into it. There were random hairs and the toilet was stained. I asked for another room with a cleaner bathroom but the receptionist said they were fully booked, which I doubt was true. But other than the bathroom I thought it was pretty decent (although for $63 a night, I would expect more for my money).

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.
