The best vacations we have had in a long time. Beautiful beaches great people great food. We had the opportunity to rent a 4x4 and made the experience even more exciting, we were able to move around without any problems.

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. We ask them to be replaced but they said they couldn't because the new ones were in the other booked rooms. This was an awful experience and it was a bad way to... More

It would be better if you was telling the truth! You checked out the hotel the next day to go for free inyour friend villa near the hotel... as well as having no respect and elegance, you have so much time to waste to ruin other people's work. When you have been offered a free upgrade of the room, you... More

The experience was very pleasant. The rooms were clean, the people welcoming and nice. Food was good and the beach is outstanding. I recommend booking with time since the price would be lower. If you're looking for a home like place to stay, this is the place to go. Would visit again in the future.

Excellent choice for couples and for families as well. Premises are going through a renovation process, but the place is worth a visit as it is. The owners are very attentive and the staff is very nice. Good service, great views. We will certainly be back soon with friends and family. The best spot at Playa Bonita

Great little hotel, clean and great service. Rooms are basic and provide with a/c and mosquito nets, but nothing fancy. It's right in the middle of Playa Bonita, which allows you to move up and down as you wish. The restaurant is very good and offers a variety of options of activities to do. Again, this is no luxury hotel,... More

The perfect getaway and beautiful landscape. I really enjoyed the stay with my lovely wife. The room was spacious with an unique bathroom. Amazing pool and beautiful garden and a very nice beach. Excellent food and great hospitality. Ideal if you want to retreat from the daily rush.

It's the perfect place to stay in Las Terrenas, if you want to be away from the noise of the city and spend a few amazing days with your family/spouse/partner or alone.

Right on the Caribbean this place has it all. Don't forget to go see Denisa and get a massage. After you massage you are now ready for a tough day of looking at and swimming in blue water. No real need to go anywhere as they have a wonderful restaurant on site.
