This is not a real "hotel" but a private mansion of an american-indian doctor that was transformed into a hotel very recently. My guess is that it was transformed into a hotel not for gaining money but for opening the house and paying the expenses.
Therefore it is a fantastic experience being there and we had the chance to spend our honeymoon.
The beach is a private creek, delicious and usually for you only, that is really unique.
The palace is a large mansion, a kind of "taj mahal", with very large beautiful rooms with the furnitures bought for the owners. I warmly suggest to spend some more for the ocean view room that allows you having breakfast every day on the beautiful balcony ans sleeping with the sound of the wawes.
The swimming pool is nice, especially when you see the peacocks !!
The service was the greatest surprise. We visited other hotels in the dominican republic and we found not really a warm welcome nor very professional.
Juan Carlos and especially Jose, Felipe and Carlos made us feel as the owners of the mansion, always available to bring us everything we wanted answering us "es un placer".
We spend one afternoon playing golf, since the course has a unique view ( on the ocean ) and we made a horse trip that however was nothing special.
Therefore we decided to stay always in the hotel, since feeling as the owners of this great mansion is not really an every-day experience.
We wish all our best to all the people working at Palace since they made our honeymoon a unforgettable one.
