We're from a small northern town in Quebec, Canada. I came with my 5 year old son and at first there was some culture shock so we had some tough moments with everything being SO different. But by the time it came to leave, we didn't want to! We had so much fun with their kids and the neighbourhood kids,... More

My family and I stayed at Jurassic Park over the holidays. This was our first visit to the Dominican Republic and we wanted a taste of it all, local culture, adventure, rest... We got all that and more! Jurassic Park exceeded our expectations as it is unassuming, ever peaceful and very friendly. Our only regret is that our vacation was... More

Our first visit to Jurassic Park was for 8 days over this recent Christmas. While I hope to provide "impartial" information for other travelers, I confess up front that the place won our hearts so our perspective is admittedly very rose colored. We were looking for fairly rustic and natural accomodations that were reasonably affordable for a small family. The... More

The rooms were very clean and cozy. Helpful super attentions. I have no complaints, but many unforgettable memories. The family spent wonder and we are eager to return again. Dominic was a tremendous host.

This place is amazing! My wife and I spent the first 3 nights of our honeymoon here, and are really, really glad we did. We chose it based on other TripAdvisor reviews, and they were spot on. Dominic and Helena are wonderful hosts, great to talk to, and full of information about the Las Terrenas area. They have an incredible... More

It is refreshing to stay in a place that is not the same as everywhere else. Dominic greeted me with a warm welcome. Talked with me in length about what I was hoping to accomplish during my stay and made suggestions. He even walked me down to the bottom of the ground to show me some new houses that were... More

When a hotel requires an advance payment alluding to its high standards and professionalism, it gives to one an idea of something well organized. In reality, it turnes out to be very different: the place has severe problems with cleanliness: from the kitchen utensilities to the pool. During our 4 days stay we had no room cleaning, no bedclothes and... More

We needed a relaxing vacation, but the buzz and lack of culture and personality of resorts wear me out. If you like to go off the beaten track while traveling, then in the DR this is definitely a place worth checking out. The property is well maintained, the bungalows are very clean and private and the breakfasts are fresh and... More

I spent two glorious months at Jurassic Park and there are not enough descriptive words in the dictionary to describe my wonderful experience. My hosts, Helena and Dominic were great. Their two young children and the children in the neighbourhood are an absolute delight. Kids that play without the use of electronics and they are never bored because of all... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Clean private bungalows, to rent, set amongst the abundance of natural beauty of Jurassic Park.The bungalows come with a fully equipped kitchen, a double bed (if required, another bed can be arranged), a bathroom with shower, and a terrace with views of the beautiful green tropical valley and the ocean.Jurassic Park is a magical place situated on a small hill, in a tranquil valley, 3-5 mins outside of the main town Las Terrenas.A short stroll behind us there are two waterfalls with pools - which are extremely inviting, especially when its hot, great for cooling off and helping to make you feel at peace with the world.We have semi controlled jungle areas which we continue to improve and make part of the attraction of being here.There is very little light pollution (no upward facing lights) so you can view the night sky, from our open pool terrace, which are mostly spectacular all year round.If you are a star gazer, a writer or a poet you would feel very much at home here.We are moving towards self sufficiency and Eco tourism. We already have pure spring water and we have solar panels and soar water heaters.We will in the future add a variety of electric vehicles for guests.If you have children then this is a natural wonderland providing constant amazement. Indeed, visits from the local children, who are a breath of fresh air, will aid your children in understanding this environment.To top it off we have a trampoline which is very popular with children and uncontrollably happy adults alike.We also grow many fruits and vegetables and indeed as I write this the wife has popped out to our herb garden for some coriander.We hope to have created a much more personal and friendly feeling.We have a great track record of content, repeat visitors. It seems that a return visit is a must, once you have been bitten by the magic and unadulterated beauty of our little oasis.Also for a small additional fee we now offer breakfast (typically eggs, toast, seasonal fruits, juices, vegetable and cheese empanadas and coffee in our jungle communal area. Its a great chance to discuss your days activities and learn the best places to go. Just let us know before hand.See you soon ... more   less
