“Loved this place”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

My husband and I had a great stay here. The owner of the hotel was very helpful and friendly, calling cabs and helping us to make arrangements. The room was very clean and airy, and the beach just outside was beautiful. The location is great as you are near the beach and only a short walk from town. The breakfast is a little expensive but you are by no means obliged to it. Would definitely recommend.

What a lovely place. Perfect location, great feel of a b&b, amazing view...
Maurizio was so accommodating and welcoming. Would stay there again!
The only thing - wish the mosquito nets were a little more sturdy and closed better. There's nothing worse than being woken up by itchy skin and the sound of mosquitos inside your net in the middle of the night... Other than that - the sound of the ocean and insect night life around are perfect...

Room Tip: for dinner - la pirata has awesome thin crust pizza, cozy atmosphere and very reasonable prices

We just spent a week at this hotel and would definitely go back for more. Mauricio and the entire staff is nothing but helpful, friendly and accommodating without being intrusive. We arrived to a spacious, airy, clean room with French doors opening onto a balcony overlooking the lush grounds and ocean. There are only 8 rooms in the entire hotel so it never becomes hectic and you always feel like it's your private place. The balconies are divided by latticework so there is never anyone walking by your room which means the French doors can remain open 24 hours a day. There is always hot water and they provide as much drinking water as you require with no charge. Mauricio allowed us to hang around after checkout time since our flight was late in the night and we were allowed to use an outdoor shower and community bathroom to clean up after spending the day on the beach. The only negative we could find was the fact that the beach in front of the hotel is a public spot and on weekends got rather noisy with the locals playing very loud music pretty much nonstop for much of Sunday. There is also a sand road running in front of the hotel which is a great walking trail to a resort about 1/2 mile down the road but allows for some noise from scooters which is the transport of choice for the natives of the area. The town is very small with just enough restaurants to keep it interesting but not much in the way of general shopping and with the exception of the pharmacia, not many options to get essentials. Hotel Todo Blanco is worth a trip to the area if you're looking for nothing but relaxation and quiet.

Room Tip: We were on the first floor and had a great ocean view with a constant breeze off the water. I can...

Todo Blanco is a beautiful, small hotel (8 rooms) right on the beach in Las Galeras, Samana, RD. As name of the hotel says, apart from some dashes of color here and there, the hotel is painted and decorated all in white which adds to spacious, breezy rooms, all equipped with ocean front terrasses overlooking a lush garden. We kept the windows and shutters open at night to hear the waves. No need for air-conditioning. We used the mosquito nets that were available in the rooms, but there weren't really any mosquitos around. The room also had a small fridge and a small safe (laptop did not fit, but all the other essentials, plus the owner reassured us that there had not been a theft for the seven years that he's been around). Wifi was working and free. Also important: drinking/filtered water was available at all times (free of additional charges). Maurizio, the owner, was very responsive by email before our arrival and the hotel kept our reservation despite our late arrival due to an overbooked flight from Haiti. I love dogs, so the fact that there were three of them roaming (well actually sleeping most of the time) around the premises, added positively to our stay.

The only slight drawback was that there was somewhat loud music coming from a bar at the small parking lot/boat launch near the hotel early in the evening, but the music stopped well before 9 pm. There were also cars and motor bikes driving by from time to time on the beach path in front of the hotel, so for lounging on the beach, it is probably better to go to nearby Playa Bonita or Fronton. Also, there was only soap in the room, no shampoo or shower gel - we had to buy some at the pharmacy in the village.

I just spent 3 nights at the Hotel Todo Blanco. It's a beautiful place right on the beach, walking distance to everything (but there is not much to see in town). The room was huge and clean and there was always a slight breeze and the sound of the ocean. You don't need air conditioning here. The beds were a little hard but fine.

Las Galeras feels like the end of the earth in some ways because it is a long drive from most things. The Playa Rincon and the Playa Fronton are close by and it's possible to do a day trip to Cayo Levantado and the Parque Los Haitises. You see the same people at the beach and at dinner at night because the place is so small.

It also feels like the end of the earth because it's still off the beaten path so people ride motorcycles on the beach (there is actually a hard packed dirt road on the beach) and think it's OK to light up a cigar at breakfast. The breakfast here is great - eggs, coffee, fresh fruit and tropical jams with a spectacular view. The morning we arrived a group was doing yoga on the lawn of the hotel which was free for hotel guests.

The owner Maurizio is an ex diving instructor and has lived in the DR for a long time and was very friendly and helpful. All in all we had a great stay.

Room Tip: All of the rooms have good views on the beach (there are only 8 rooms).

We just returned from a 3-night stay at Todo Blanco hotel in Las Galeras and loved it. There are only 8 rooms so it feels cozy and small, but still feels like a boutique hotel. The common areas, including the living room and dining areas have incredible views of the lawn and ocean beyond, and our second-floor room had a balcony that was to-die-for. The rooms are simple (in that there are no telephones, tvs, etc.) but they're spotless and feel very tropical. And you can't beat the location, a 5min walk from all the restaurants on the main drag and right on the beach. I'd go back in an instant!

Room Tip: Second floor rooms have amazing views! All rooms have balconies too.

It was just amazing. My husband and me, we went to Dominican Republic at the end of October and it was so warm!! It's a bed and breakfast style, but there are a lot of local restaurants around. The nature is amazing and it's placed just on a sea shore. Very romantic, beautiful and quite place. Staff is very friendly and relaxed. Also it's very close to fishermen's boats and they can bring you to gorgeous remote beaches (around $20 per round trip).

They only thing that disappointed us a little bit is that hotel doesn't have a transfer from airport, which means you would have to take a taxi and it's pretty expensive (around $100) and there are no buses.
Anyway, it was worth it!!!)) We have such a good memories:))
