As this is not a seaside location I was little worried what we gona do there in the mountains, but in the end I would say that this stay was the most rewarding and relaxing in Dominican republic (we were traveling around and changed 6 locations in 3 weeks). The big pluses are great view toward the ocean, staff is very friendly but not pushy, food is excelent, lodges are really eco but eveerything is clean. For activiteis I would recomend coffe plantations and nearby waterfalls.

Serene, scenic eco lodge - peaceful get away from the city and touristy beaches. Tim is a wealth of knowledge on local history, culture, and tourism, and is happy to sit and talk or connect you with local guides. The views are amazing, breezes keep all bugs away, food is delicious. Check out the Amber Mine tour, local hike, fruit stand, or coffee plantation.

Room tip: Dorm style rooms don't get much breeze due to the direction they face. Upgrade to a palapa for two open sides and extra breeze.

To imagine your stay close your eyes! Feel the gentle breeze, listen to the palms blowing, feel the coolness on your skin, smell the sweetness of the flowers at your porch ledge! You ARE in paradise! The small "lap" pool takes the heat of a tropical day away as you relax with friends both new and old. The food from The Girls is never disappointing! Lodging is a palm heaven with cross ventilation through louvred windows. Any special needs are met by just asking!
The common eating space overlooks the Tubagua valley to the ocean view from Puarta Plata to Sosua shoreline. And one of the best views is from the room with a view hot water shower accommodations.

Room tip: Open air views available with netting on every bed for that tropical feel with never a bug to bite! Front rooms are the best view!

This place is amazing. The lodge is tucked away up a mountain away from the city down below. So if that is what you are looking for this is the perfect place. Everyone that works here are amazing people to. I would say that they try to make you feel at home and like family, but I think it just comes naturally to them. I would stay here again and I will be recommending it to all my friends.

If you are looking for a cushy hotel with room service and air conditioning, this place is not for you. If you are looking for stunning views over sprawling hills, fresh breezes, and a relaxing natural environment, this is definitely the place for you!

Like no place I've ever stayed, the lodge was a wonderful place to unwind after long days of exploring in the DR.

Just a short drive away from beaches, markets, and more commercialized areas.

Just a heads up that animal sounds are quite prevalent, especially in the mornings, but that is all in the experience!
