Casas del Mar Neptunia
Ranked #17 of 35 Hotels in Las Terrenas
Reviewed October 16, 2013

We found Casas del Mar Neptunia excellent value for money during our stay. Its close proximity to the beach and good restaurants meant we could indulge at will in our favourite pastimes of swimming in the warm Atlantic waters and eating good food!

Our room was clean and comfortable and the ceiling fan meant that the lack of air conditioning was no hardship at all. All rooms looked out to the nicely landscaped garden, giving a cosy intimate feeling, away from the bustle of the streets. The staff were without exception friendly and helpful and we enjoyed the daily breakfast of coffee, fruit, bread and jam.

All in all we recommend this place very highly.

Thank you taking the time to write a review, it is appreciated. It was very nice having you stay with us and we're glad that the weather was good for beach time and warm evenings out at one of the many restaurants. Many guests end up not going any farther than walking distance from the hotel. A couple of beach visits, a leisurely meal or two and maybe a little shopping and your whole day gets used up. Very glad you enjoyed your time here.

We stayed for 2 nights in this very cute hotel. It´s in a great location, just a few minutes walk to the beach and main streets. The staff are friendly and the rooms are very comfortable and clean. There´s no AC but we were cool enough with the ceiling fan and this is the hottest time of the year! The rooms have lots of shade and a very nice little terrace where you can sit and enjoy the peace and quiet. Breakfast was simple but very nice, fresh bread with jam, fresh fruit, coffee and juice. I will stay here again for sure!

When we booked this I was worried because it seemed too good to be true, but guess what? It is a treasure. It's small, only about 10 rooms, but set in a well maintained garden. We were there over a national holiday and the beach had really loud music, but we didn't hear it at all. It is quaint and simple, don't expect lots of frills. It was squeaky clean well cared for. The breakfast was good and the service wonderful. We will go there next time we go to Las Terrenas

Thank you for the review. We are very happy that you found the hotel quaint and clean and that you were pleasantly surprised. The garden often receives compliments and is certainly worth the effort for all the pleasure it brings. We hope to see you again and are grateful that you would choose our hotel again.

I just came back from spending a night at Casas del Mar Neptunia; this is a charming and well kept property owned by an American living in the area. I paid about $45/night (including breakfast). The property's garden is well kept and the rooms are immaculately clean. Breakfast consisted of fresh local fruits, fresh and warm baguette from a local french bakery (about 2 blocks away), coffee and some juice (regretfully it was made from some artificial mix, and it was full of sugar). I was pleasantly surprised that my breakfast included a fresh baguette; the regular street bread that you find in the DR is just terrible in my opinion. The property's location is great (a block away from the beach), and it has a small parking area for guests. The room that I occupied didn't have A/C, and since I was not offered one with A/C, I suppose that the other rooms don't have A/C either. The staff was nice and courteous. I will definitively come back to this place.

Very glad we chose to stay here based on reviews. As stated, the little cabins are spacious, clean and close to the beach. The grounds were lovely and breakfast fresh. What made me want to write a review were two lovely staff- Rosana and Fermin. We arrived mid-week and tried to book a trip with some of the local companies to head to the remote beaches for snorkling- but all were full. Rosana went out of her way to call a few different people for us and helped up organize a private trip to remote beaches that included a wonderful lunch caught fresh from our fisherman guide, Jose! Later on in the week, the security guy, Fermin, helped teach my husband and I how to play dominoes and we spent a lovely evening chatting with him about the Dominican Republic. Very enjoyable stay (we stay twice as long as planned) and really the best option in this area!

We had a lovely time at Casas del Mar Neptunia last December, the owners were the nicest and most helpful people of any place that we stayed during our entire trip. The included breakfast was delightful, and I miss those lovely mornings with fresh papaya, baguettes and hot chocolate, watching the birds of the DR bouncing around the gardens, and hearing them in the trees above. We will definitely return to the Casas del Mar the next time we visit the DR.

I absolutely recommend staying at Casas del Mar. It is a one minute walk from a gorgeous beach in Las Terrenas and close to a lot of restaurants. Once you see the Bienvenidos a Las Terrenas sign, look to your left, and you'll see the little road to turn down.

The rooms and beds are big and adorable. The whole layout of the hotel is just like you'd picture a Caribbean hotel to be - full of trees and flowers.

The breakfast in the morning was absolutely delightful both days that my sister and I stayed there. We absolutely loved it, and it was such a bargain for Las Terrenas!
