“Not worth for the price.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

The hotel is in an excellent location, the breakfast is good but you can get a cheaper price for the breakfast if you go and buy it yourself in the cafeteria, there's a lot mosquitos and cockroaches in the hotel room, the AC doesn't work properly, the water heater is OFF late at night and the pool is ok. You can get a lot of more options for the same price.

The hotel is old and outdated, the place smells like mildew, intensely. The location is perfect, you are right in the middle of town. There is no restaurant on site and the bar at the pool is not part of the hotel so you cannot run a tab, or charge it to your room. The bar has sandwiches, you can walk right our into the plaza and there are restaurants everywhere. We were there for 3 days and never saw anyone in the pool, I went in on the last night and it was fine. The major issue with the hotel is the stench, the towels has bleach stains. The staff is nice and were helpful, they do not speak English. Nicer on the outside than inside.

Room Tip: We asked for a different room and they were able to do so, the place was sold out so that may not be...

I can't say if this is the whole town because even in the parking I saw cockroaches flying(one to be honest) but in two nights stay at first one I had to go for baygon to a nearby market.

In the other hand the place is not bad at all for the price you pay as it holds many people for the same price rooms are not that bad but bathroom shower needs workout. They have kind of kitchenette that works a little bit for common use.

Location I can't say is bad at all as it is 200 meters from beach, of course is not the ultimate spot but I would say for low budget tourist holding baygon cans it will do

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).
