Beautiful beach. Go to the right by the surfing school or in the extreme right past the little river for a very calm private time away from major waves. Perfect jogging. Perfect scuba diving off the islands across from the hotel. The hosts are a young French couple very passionate about their new homeland and most helpful in all bookings. Their advices are precious. There are dogs on the island and a few hang around. They are friendly and mostly distant though they dislike moderately the occasional moto-taxi coming down the beach walkway. I thought they rather added to the experience because although they do not all have designated owners they are healthy fixed --thanks to a team of German volunteer vets--and fed. They are well behaved and used to the numerous visitors and guests who enjoy the hotel. I seldom had a better experience in a country of limited economy. The people are very friendly in the town and villages. Follow the fares as understood and recommended by the hotel owners as guidelines as you barter the prices. I recommend renting a qwad. Horse riding on the beach. The guagua to the Tainos museum for the not faint of heart. Well done and haunting history of their genocide. The coffee road and the the Moron beach were fun visit. For lovers of jewelry ask about the local stone. The owner is a "foodie" and has a very creative menu. He also gives simple dishes upon request. I positively loved my stay there
