Hotel's Favorite
I stayed here twice this year and both stays were impeccable. My first room (an upgrade thanks to my Small Luxury Hotels program membership) was a master suite in the “designer casa”. It was absolutely gorgeous (and massive), complete with a claw foot bathtub. There was butler service, delicious breakfast and a beautiful courtyard with a jacuzzi. The second stay was equally lovely, in another casa this time, but with similar amenities. During my stay, I was given a tour of all the casas and they all looked charming. I would have been happy with any one of them but ask in advance if you have specific requirements. The location of the hotel is excellent for anyone wanting to explore the colonial zone of Santo Domingo. The service throughout my stay was very friendly and professional, with attention to every single detail. The hotel itself is absolutely beautiful, I would be happy to return any day. Check out my blog Hopping Around the Globe in Style for the best experiences and stays in the Dominican Republic.

When we first saw hotel and our room in Ciudad Colonial we were impressed. Hotel is located in 4 or 5 buildings connected or nearby location . Rooms are laid out and uniquely furnished with each building having there own common area for eating and relaxing. However I not writing this review to praise but instead to bury.. We had dinner first night in our common area and was overcharged for a bad meal. The cost was double anything we paid in town at best restaurants almost to point that the experience made us feel defrauded. Comply ruined the whole stay. My point is don’t pay for food or drink in hotel

This is an interesting set up. With 5 different buildings within a block of each other it is rather different but each one is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. It is within 5 minutes walking distance of many restaurants and they will also provide dinner in your private courtyard or restaurant. We are very fusy and we found this to be a great option. Would definitely use it again.

After welcoming my daughter and me, the manager gave us a cell phone for the exclusive purpose of calling our personal butler and the concierge at any time of the day or night. Now THAT’s service! Breakfast, lunch, or dinner in the courtyard right outside our room at any hour. Another property across the street has a pool that we were invited to use any time. Restaurant and sightseeing recommendations were on the money. Lots of hangers, drawers, and bathroom storage. Indulge!!
