This resort is pristine and immaculately kept. Playa area was beautiful with hammocks, chairs and palm umbrellas. The pool was stunning, and you can have food and drinks delivered there. The beach is a stone's throw out and just gorgeous. Managers Vincenzo and Gilda have done a wonderful job with the resort and the restaurant/bar. Sesame seed tuna is to...

Such a nice location, but the service really has to improve: yesterday was nice, but today it was disappointing. Took 30 minutes to get a cup of coffee for breakfast, I was not able to get a fresh towel for the pool and they forgot our appointment for 2 massages we made yesterday, so we don't get a massage. The...

We visit Las Terrenas a couple times a year and this time we chose to stay on the Playa Bonita side of town. Our first night at another hotel wasn't very good so we left in the morning. We soon found Costa Las Ballenas and decided to give it a try. We met the friendly owners as we wandered onto...

The Owners Vincenzo and Gilda were great. They meet you at the reception desk and you can find them all day on the grounds helping and just talking with their guest. That is no easy feat since it is a sort of cabana style resort with lots of gardens and plenty of room. My wife and I both agree one...

Gilda had never cooked a turkey before. But she was willing to give it a try. She found 2 live birds a day before. She stuffed them, baked them and served them to our group of 14. But she said "I cooked them, but I Don't carve them." So I stepped up and did the honor. They were wild birds,...
