The property is just amazing. I had one of the casitas which was beautiful and had a splendid view. I didn't see a mosquito or fly the entire 3 days. The room and bath had all of the comforts. Comfortable bed. The staff, while not always smiley, will try to make sure your requests are satisfied. It is very homey with the friendly dogs and cats. You can walk around the area. It felt very safe. I hired the guide to go the waterfalls which is a must. I took most meals at the lodge and they were all plentiful and delicious. Just two warnings. The road getting to the ecolodge is not for the faint of heart. You really need an all terrain vehicle. The wifi is not very good - you can't stream - but this is the sort of special place that one should disconnect as much as possible.

Response from Tim Hall, Owner at Tubagua Plantation Eco Lodge
Responded Oct 10, 2020
The road has been under re-construction. Of the 40 kms between Santiago and Puerto Plata, there are 10 kms waiting to finish paving. Any type of rental car can now easily reach us, even the smallest cheapest ones.

We planned our stay at Tubagua as an anniversary “escape” from the hustle and bustle of Sosúa. Tim was such a gracious host, reserved us a private en-suite casita for us and had a surprise dessert for our anniversary! The views down to the coast are spectacular, grounds are natural and lush, casitas are clean and welcoming! The food was incredible. Lunch and dinner are served family-style: delicious, fresh and abundant. And large breakfast made to order! My only recommendations to future guests are: bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper: traffic, roosters and dogs do interrupt the calm of Tubagua. And get good directions ahead of time- no signs on the main road.
All in all, an amazing, unique and memorable experience. Thank you Tim and staff!

I stayed at Tubagua Eco Lodge for two nights, and although the views from our room and the dining area were fantastic, I left feeling as though I had been way overcharged for the privilege.

The lodge is a good 40 minutes drive from the city of Puerto Plata, meaning that once you arrive there you are rather isolated, even if you have a car like we did. This is especially the case as driving in the dark in the DR can be a rather harrowing experience. When combined with the fact that none of breakfast, lunch or dinner is included in the room price, you realise that these additional costs are almost unavoidable. You therefore need to take into account that each day you'll need to pay an extra $7.50/person (+28% tax) for breakfast, $17.50/person (+28% tax) for dinner and (if you don't email ahead requesting their 'special deal') $10/person (+28% tax) for lunch. Plus $5 for a beer.

It's not as though the food isn't tasty, however the evening meal is cooked en mass for all the guests, who then serve themselves buffet style. No drink other than water is included. Breakfast is OK, but far from the best we had in the DR and again is served buffet style. We opted not to pay for lunch, as we wanted to make a decision when we arrived as to where we'd spend our day and as such the special deal which adds lunch in for free with the cost of breakfast and dinner was not available to us. However the group who were also staying with us did have the packed lunch option, which involved them assembling their own sandwiches.

Beyond the cost of the food, I also had issues with the communal toilets and shower being located right below the dining balcony. Again, for the price of the room I would expect an en suite, and certainly not a row of toilets with one shower strategically placed next to an unnecessary toilet and urinal.

I have stayed at many similar ecolodges around the world and this has been by far the most expensive. I don't think it correct to charge the prices they do for the amenities provided. It's a shame as the setting truly is wonderful, but that alone does not justify the cost.

We're so sorry you and your partner (who also sent in a 2-star review) didn't enjoy your stay at Tubagua. We take our reviews very seriously and whenever we receive a less than 4-star review we have a staff meeting and go over it with a fine-toothed comb. From each one we strive to find out how we can improve our facilities and client service. Thank you for pointing out with detail the things that didn't satisfy you. It will help us in our goal of maintaining our current score of 96% good and excellent reviews.

This place has amazing, well cared for grounds and an expansive view towards the ocean from the "living room." The rooms, the service and the food were all amazing and far surpassed our expectations. Tim the proprietor was a great help and answered our questions along with providing local knowledge. We were introduced to a friendly, no-pressure guide (Juanin) who took us on a hike to the local waterfalls. He knew everyone along the way. I am vegetarian and they were accommodating to my needs while still providing excellent local food family style for our group of 4. Each of the rooms is a little different and has unique character. We were happy to have hot showers in our room (or outside) as well. The town of Puerto Plata is about a 20 minute drive for other activities. The road is currently under construction, which was actually nice because there was little traffic going by the Eco lodge. We will be returning!

I traveled solo to Puerto Plata for 3 nights to an all inclusive resort. I usually don't stay at all-in since I get bored and seek adventure. Nevertheless, on my last night I was tired of the beach scene and started researching what there was in the area and I wanted to stay away from the tourist traps of excursions (I usually rent a car and explore on my own). Eventually I came across the lodge and I knew I had to experience it even if it was for a day. My plane was late so I had the entire day left in Puerto Plata, the hotel made you check out at noon so I had 7 hours. I called the lodge and Tim was wonderful and gave great advise. My initial plan was to book a room and stay at the lodge for the day; however, Tim suggested to do the hike. Later that day when I arrived at the lodge, Miguelina welcomed me with a smile and made me feel right at home! Then I went off for the hike to the falls (Gods Swimming Pool) with Juanin. It was a wonderful hike through the rural area of the province, we climbed rocks, hills and made some new animal friends (cows, donkey). The blue hole swimming pool and falls is wonderful, I could have spent the entire day there because it was peaceful and no other tourists which is my thing- true serenity. It took us about 1 hour to hike there and 1 hour back. Plus the pictures do not do the lodge nor the falls justice. I was sad I did not get to stay the night or longer but definitely next time. Tim, Miguelina and Juanin were friendly, helpful and just made my trip. PS they all speak great English but don't be scared to practice your Spanish skills. Again, thank you all for everything. Gracias.
