I stayed at the Platino for almost two weeks, I was very pleased with my stay. I can tell you that every member of the staff I encountered was very hospitable and helpful whenever I needed anything. Everyone at the front desk spoke at least conversational English. If you don't know your way around, ask the concierge to call a taxi for you and voilà, about 5 minutes later you'll have one. The hotel has an in house restaurant, you can walk downstairs and enjoy a meal, or call and order something. You can bill everything you order there to your room number and pay for it all upon checkout. All the rooms have a safe so you can lock your valuables up. A security guard keeps watch in the courtyard all night, so if you go out on the town and get back late, you shouldn't worry to much about being mugged or anything. All and all I loved the hotel and had a great time in Santiago, can't wait to go back!
P.S. I would advise you have at least an elementary knowledge of the Spanish language before going to the DR, do not expect to be catered to in this aspect. Dominicans are mostly like Americans with the mentality that if you're in their country, you should speak their language. Fair enough, right? Hope this helps with your decision making, buen viaje! - Christian
