Villa Marianna Hotel
Ranked #13 of 34 Boca Chica B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 26, 2013

I only stayed one night in this hotel. I like that it has a sizeable room; however, the night that I stayed there, the television cable was inoperable due to the previous day's rain storm. There was no back-up system available, thus, I was subjected to not being able to watch television. The hotel features a very nice sizeable swimming pool, of which I took full advantage. They offer breakfast for a very reasonable price. The staff at the hotel were very accommodating, hospitable, and willing to assist; however, the things that I did not like about this particular hotel, is that the door to the single rooms are heavy sliding doors (which need greasing and oiling-they are quite difficult to move, especially if one is female) of which one must lock with a padlock to which one keeps the key, and there are absolutely no security safe boxes within any of the hotel rooms. One must give one's valuables to the management of which the management has a security safe box to which only the management has access to, and this system services the entire hotel clients. The hotel is located very close to the heart of the Boca Chica Plaza, so there is quite a bit of noise during the early morning of the day, and during the nighttime.

Room Tip: Should one opt to stay at this hotel, one should opt to select an apartment. At least the apartment...

Travel guides describe Boca Chica as past its glory days. Its multi-star hotels receive negative reviews. All too true. But up a little hill from the central park and behind the Catholic church you would discover this attractive, 24-room inn with topnotch service, clean rooms, dependable electricity and hot water, congenial and helpful staff and low rates.You and your family would feel very safe here. I stayed here in March, 2008, and December, 2011, with nary a complaint. For about $35 a night I had a clean and spacious bedroom, roomy bathroom, and a kitchen/dining area with a refrigerator and a range both times. There is a small swimming pool, a cozy, well-stocked bar, free WiFi, and a pretty, covered patio for eating, playing dominoes, or comparing notes with the international clientele. It's a four-block stroll to the beach, but that just gives one a chance to watch the daily life of the busy, very interesting village. So, we're not talking isolated, enclosed resort here, but a very well-managed, inexpensive lodging that lets one experience the real Republica Dominicana.
Boca Chica is just 8 miles from cosmopolitan, historic Santo Domingo (less than that from the international airport) and public transportation is less than a block from this hotel. Banking and grocery-shopping are nearby. I've been all around this country and for my money the beach here is the prettiest, safest for families one will find. Sure, prostitutes (boys and girls) are all over the place, but no more than anywhere on this island. Just ignore them (unless you don't want to). Calle Duarte is full of some good restaurants so one can avoid the rip-off beach-front eateries. Take a phrase book: not much English here. For low-cost, quiet lodging and authentic immersion in the intriguing Dominican culture I recommend Villa Marianna above all the overrated, over-priced places being offered.

Room Tip: Just preview a room or two and choose the one that fits.
