      Second trip and found service great and ideal location for free movement around area.

      The rooms were great except for the floor that needed to be mopped.

      Nothing at all..

      Yes everything was misleading about the hotel. the price.. the airport shuttle the layout of room.. Over priced and seriously lacking in facilities.. Will never stay again at this hotel.. far finer to be had in Santo Domingo and for a better price.. will have to rethink my bookings in future

      The hotel was very unique and had a lot of charm. The architecture was interesting with solid wood beams, bricks, high ceilings and 12 foot solid wood doors. The place was clean and had a relaxing environment. There is free Wi-Fi available.

      The rooms are very small--there was only about 10-12 inches (personal estimate) between the end of the toilet seat and the facing wall in which to place your legs. The hotel entrance is kept locked. You have to ring the bell and wait for somebody to open the door for you to enter the hotel. I would recommend reconfirming your reservation with the hotel directly if you book through another company just to make sure your reservation gets integrated with their system.

      The pool and the colonial style of the hotel, very charming!

      The noise! We booked the appartment which is separated from the hotel and located in a street extremely noisy on saturday nights with music until 3 am. 100 dollars the room for 4 hours of sleep is no value for money!

      Some staff were awesome. Manager not so much.

      Internet connection was bad, and not always working. Jaucuzzi did not have hot water or much jet action.. Was surprised when told 26% would be added to reserved price.. Reread contract and finally found this charge in the smallest possible print.

      Friendly staff, good breakfast, beautiful interior decoration of the hotel.

      Water leaking through the roof (there was a hurricane close that caused more than normal rain), not sound proof doors

      The breakfast was good and rich. Good location.

      Not clean, tiny uncomfort rooms. Full of ants.
