“Great place! Clean and well cared for.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We stayed in ArcoIris with our friends, a total of eight people (4 kids under 12yrs. and parents), for 8 nights. The house was clean and comfortable. Nights were quiet; no roosters crowing or disco beats keeping you awake. Distant sounds of surf and tropical creatures. Michele was very helpful in making sure we enjoyed our stay. Her travel tips and assistance were much appreciated. We loved Las Galeras and the friendly people there. The beach nearby, La Playita, is fantastic. I would highly recommend La BellaVentura and Las Galeras as a destination.

“A wonderful way to experience Las Galeras and Samana”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We spent a two nights in the Acroiris Cottage as a break from Santo Domingo. We really enjoyed our time here. Michelle, the owner, is very hospitable and really wants to help you enjoy Las Galeras and the nearby beaches. She provided directions and recommendations. The location is great, one block from the main street of Las Galeras with shops and restaurants.

We found the cottage comfortable. It has recently been renovated and had colorful decorative painting through. There are four beds total. Each has a fan and mosquito netting (which actually does surround the bed). There is no air conditioning but the cottage has lots of screened windows which catch the breezes. Only quibble would be the mattress which were a bit hard, however, after a day at the beach we were sufficiently
tired for this not to be an issue. The windows were secured and there was a security guard outside in the evening. We felt safe and comfortable during our entire visit.

We cooked our breakfast in the outdoor gas stove tops. There is a also a full refrigerator with a freezer. There were all the pots, pans, knives, silver to cover our needs.

The grounds surrounding the cottage are not large but very nicely maintained. There are a number of tropical flowers, banana trees, and close cut grass. There was enough room to play badminton with the kids. My daughter loved hanging with Michelle and Gaspard's very friendly dogs.

Overall a nice two day getaway. If you want to be close to Las Galeras and experience a Dominican seaside town along with the wonderful beaches of Samana there is simply no better place.
