After 9 days at a Punta Cana AI resort, we stayed 3 nights in this charming, restored property. We had watched the TA reviews and choose the property based on history and the location. If you wish to experience Colonial Zone while staying in a historical property, the Hotel Palacio is an excellent choice. It is just steps (half a block) from Calle El Conde. The Jumbo supermarket on the corner is very convenient for purchases.
We booked a Superior King on the hotel’s web site that included free breakfast. When we arrived, we were told it was not included. Luckily we had printed the web page containing the description and this was honored by the receptionist without any problems.
We found the room very clean, quiet spacious, working AC, and a large bathroom with hot water. The beds were quite comfortable. Our room had a high ceiling and a safe box located in the closet. We had a courtyard facing room and the balcony hallway overlooking the courtyard was a lovely place to sit and relax.
Breakfast was very good and included eggs, breakfast meats, cheese, pancakes, assorted breads/rolls, fruit, cereal, juice, milk and coffee. The wait staff and chef were very attentive to the guests. The outdoor patio is a nice place to dine.
We had dinner at the hotel restaurant on our first evening and this was also good.
The rooftop pool although small was very clean and nice place for a quick dip.
Our maid was excellent and the room was well kept during our stay.
The reception staff and the security were friendly and very helpful.
To all of the Hotel Palacio staff, thank you for a most enjoyable stay. We hope to return again soon.
