Hotel Garant
Ranked #5 of 19 Hotels in Boca Chica
Reviewed February 20, 2009

I've just returned from spending a couple of nights in Boca Chica at Hotel Garant. I got advice from some folks here (most suggested Candil), but I chose Garant because it was a little closer to the beach, and every report I read about the place commented on how clean it was. Also, since I was traveling with a small child, I was concerned about going up and down that hill to Candil.

I was not disappointed at all, the Garant was very clean just as reported. I paid $50 per night for a regular room with AC. There is a little pool that is very nice, too. My daughter really enjoyed the pool. We also walked to the beach, which was nice because she got to play with the other kids (no other kids at the hotel). As someone else said, it's certainly not the nicest beach in the Caribbean, but the water was calm and warm and if you want for anything, just wait a minute and someone will be walking by selling it.

I was looking for some good Dominican food on Duarte (forgot to investigate that before I left), but couldn't find anyplace that looked great. We ended up eating mostly at Toucan (sp?). The food was really good, nice staff, great service, and good prices. My daughter and I shared a big plate of pasta with meat sauce for 130 pesos, roughly $4 US.

As far as the prostitutes, this really doesn't bother me and my daughter is 2 and too young to know what's going on or ask any questions. So, that really wasn't an issue for me.

I'm sure I'll be back to Boca Chica and other parts of the island soon!

This is a very nice hotel for people looking for a cheap place to stay. The rooms are clean and are ok, its no big luxury but its ok for a cheap stay. The restaurant at the hotel is expensive and does not include the coffee, so I would recommend the restaurant Camille which is about a 5 minute walk. Its very close to the beach, but be carefull because they will over charge tourists so I recommend to get chairs at the El Rosario, its 2 guys that work there, owned by a german couple. There you are sure not to get riped off. The pool of the hotel is very nice and clean, its a very secure hotel but make sure to realise you are staying in a Dominican village so its nothing like home when you go out the hotel. The rooms were ok, no big luxury. The beach is beautifull.

Stayed here for three nights and have to say I was disappointed. The rooms were ok but the distance from the beach (which is after all the reason we came to Boca Chica) is a negative. Staff was so-so and price is higher than other local hotels I investigated. I will try the Zapata next time. Right on the beach, has great reviews and is more reasonable.
