Beautiful, individual cottages situated on a large oceanfront property. We enjoyed well mixed mojitoes while relaxing on the terrace near the bar. The room was quiet, clean and pretty. Tasty breakfast served in large dining room adjacent to bar. A paved walking path runs alongside the sea. Good beach for swimming and practicing surfing. The new owners are very friendly... More

My Fiance and I loved our stay here. The resort itself is beautifully located in Las Terrenas near the ocean. Our hotel room we stayed in was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The staff are wonderful and engaging with the guests. Our meals we had were absolutely delicious.

This place is great for the price and location. The hotel was fully booked yet i only saw a few guests. The owners or managers were always present and attentive to the guests, very friendly people. The food at the restaurant was pretty good and they are more than willing to make the changes that you ask. The pool is... More

As a few others have mentioned, the resort could use some remodeling, and that is what exactly is happening now. The new ownership is working on renovating a few of the older bungalows. We had a swimming pool view room, A4, but not exactly pool front, kind of distant. The room was in need of some updating, but comfy, and... More

The hotel was terrible, it was filled with mosquitos and the room furniture was broken. They had mosquito nests but it had lots of holes in them.
