The location is amazing. Laundromat nearby, and many restaurants and clubs. The hotel is literally on the beach. You can go back and forth between the ocean and the pool in a minute. The hotel restaurant is on the beach too so you can dig your totes in the sand while you dig into some grub. And the food and drinks were amazing to say the least. Beach and bath towels were provided, so were the toiletries. The spa is directly above the bar which I highly recommend. The staff were super attentive and nice. You can tell the owners value this place. I mean it’s beautiful, relaxing and overall extremely enjoyable.
The WiFi isn’t very fast. Works well enough when you’re in/near your room. The gym needs an update.
The location of the hotel is very good and the pool and beach area are cosy. Service at the restaurant is friendly and the breakfast is good.
Customer service at the reception is very poor. We wanted to change our room right after arriving because there was very noisy air conditioning in our room (even when it was turned off). The staff was very unfriendly and kept saying that the hotel is fully booked. Finally we got new better room and everything went well for few nights until there was a water damage in our room. First there were water dripping from our bathroom ceiling around 10 pm when we arrived from dinner. The staff checked the situation and promised to fix the leak on next day. However, the leak spreaded already after couple of hours and there leaked many litres of water during the night. Water was leaking almost all over the ceiling, our bed got wet too and we stayed up all night. Finally, when the reception desk opened at 7 am, we explained the situation. The receptionist was extremely reluctant to admit how serious and big the water damage was and kept saying that the problem will be fixed soon and the hotel is fully booked so we can't change the room. We were quite shocked that the staff thought that the room would be inhabitable after couple of hours and they didn't realize (or admit) how serious the water damage was. Finally, they somehow found a new, clean room for us after 7 hours discussions. It felt that the staff weren't even sorry and they thought that we are too demanding. In my opinion, a real apology and a compensation wouldn't be too much to ask for. Surprisingly, we got late check out for free but it felt like minimum compensation and didn't comfort too much when all our clothes were moist and stinking.
Nice staff, clean and right on the beach.
Really low value for money.
The location was perfect! The hotel is located in the city center on a main street. There are shops and restaurants surrounding it. You have the choice of eating in the restaurant which is on the beach with marvelous views or eating from the restaurants on the street. It's EXTREMELY economical to eat on the main street. We mostly did the buffet breakfast which is mostly continental but it was good. The food was good and I would recommend eating there for your stay if you didn't want to eat outside of the hotel. The hotel was nice and I really liked that it wasn't a large establishment (only 61 rooms). Due to the size the walk to the beach is merely feet away. I would suggest when making your reservation to request beach front so that you do not have the noise of the street. It's not super modern but it's modern enough. The exterior is a Mediterranean/Spanish design. The staff was always friendly and our rooms were always cleaned. A HUGE plus was that they provided face/washcloths. My previous stay in DR and from others that I know have stayed in DR wash cloths were not provided and most of the staff had no clue of what we were requesting. The pool was never crowded and there was always a chair available on the beach. We were told that the tents/umbrellas were included in our rate; however were told by the beach staff there was an additional charge. No big deal there were enough large palm trees for shade.
Not so much of a dislike but an FYI - the hotel does not have elevators. There are 4 levels with the upper level being the penthouse suites. It's not listed on the description but I think is good information to know for a person that my have difficulty going up and down stairs. The mattresses aren't that comfortable and slept like boards. They should really invest in upgrading. The main con we had is that by the third day there was what we thought was condensation on the floor from the mini fridge. Maintenance came in our room within minutes of our call and advised the AC was not working and they were working to fix. However; it was not fixed by our check out date 2 days later.
The pancakes are disgusting. Very thin and hardly cooked, too soft for my liking.
The staff hardly knows any English. The room phone wasn’t working. I made a complaint about the phone several times and nothing was done to fix the phone. The food was disgusting overal in the DR.
