I was referred this Hotel Emotions in Juan Dolio & booked it due to Internet includes because I had to work 2 days out of the 3 days I was staying. I booked a room that states private pool and has a photo of a swim up, however when I got there they put me in a room with no private pool, it’s an adult private pool you have to leave your room for. There was no electricity on one side, AC not working and I was not given a tour or any guidance to where anything was. I had to walk all the way to front to express I was put in the wrong room only to be charged $20 more a night. I was told someone will be there to help with our luggage in 20 minutes which turned out to be a hour 1/2 with no AC and hungry until I continued to call for someone to come. That night I went to prep my computer to get ready to work the next day and couldn’t because the internet doesn’t work, I was force to wake up extra early, walk to the from lobby and work 9-10 hours there with one computer because I couldn’t have the two because there was no room, so I spent most of my time in there office but not in the room I paid for to be comfortable. The lounge where you get food is full of big flies, stray cats and dogs begging for food, jumping on you for food, dirty bloody bathroom, terrible service and management do not want to compensate at least 50%. Cooks wear no gloves and touches seasoning with his hands but you need to wear a glove to get food. Management do not care. I asked to do what’s fair and the want to compensate me for 1 day for 1 person however I paid for two. This is ridiculous! Do not come here! I can’t even express everything else I experienced but it’s not worth it! I have included a photo of the main bathroom and have videos of the animals just coming out of no where

While looking for our vacation we checked many hotels and read many reviews . Now, after the vacation I can confirm that the beach is fantastic, the hotel is very clean, the drinks at the bar - always great , the food was very good (especially Mexican restaurant) and the coffee was honestly the best I ever had. But the main treasure of this place is the staff. They are very friendly and always ready to help you with any issue you might have. I regret not taking the names of all people I want to thank, but the one very special is Esmer - always smiling, always at your service. Thank you all for the beautiful time !

I spent 10 days in the DR with 7 nights at Emotions, my home away from home. 3 nights was spent in Santo Domingo which is less than an hour guagua (bus ride). This hote is nicely located between San Pedro, Boca Chica and Santo Domingo. I’ve always felt welcomed by the staff, am very comfortable and feel safe in this Juan Dolio location. Many thanks for the wonderful service from all the staff, special mentioned to the morning waiters- Orlando, Jonathan, Juana, Juan Carlos and a new waiter who’s name I don’t remember; afternoon waiters - Roberto, Pedro, Windy, Dariza and so many others and of course the restaurant teams of Domingo, Jose, Jose Daniel and others. Supervisor Diego always has a smile on his face which is contagious. The bartenders always make things fun with a bachata move to the day- gracias Juan Carlos a la piscina, Juan Gilberto, Pedro, Basilio at the beach and so many others. Everyone works hard and do their best to make the clients experience one to remember. The cleaning staff also work hard and deserve a mention, muchas gracias. The food in the restaurants is delicious and the buffet always has a good variety. The beach had a lot of algae this time but that’s all over the country this year. When you make the best of it, you can have a great vacation! Espero la discoteca abierta la proxima vez! Nos vamos pronto
