    The entire staff is unbelievably friendly and helpful. We are against midnight arrived and we could immediately move into our room, in the fridge waiting for a very delicious lunch to us and to the declaration was the next morning in the peace and quiet! It is spanish, english and german spoken. The cleanliness of the whole hotel is outstanding! We had problems with the air conditioning and could immediately move into another room! Briefly and scarcely: here everything is done, so that you feel at home!

    The place is in about 3 minutes walking distance, where you can find everything, What you need: restaurants, souvenir shops, pharmacy, bank etc. For a larger selection is a drive to Santa Barbara de samana. Also 2 other beaches are within walking distance. The airports are far away, from Puerto Plata we 4 hours. Next time we will on santo domingo are kindly, this transfer takes only 2.5 hours.

    The rooms are very large and furnished with attention to detail. Very good we liked, that really much reservoir available and a sofa with a table! The bathroom is very spacious and there are toiletries. Every day the refrigerator is with 1.5 liter of mineral water and also the towels were changed every day! A safe is also available, and can without costs be used! And although we had a room in the ground floor, we stayed in 3 weeks not even bugs in the room or on the balcony! We know that different! A truly outstanding housekeeping!

    The pool is nestled in a beautiful garden, very clean and well maintained. You can over 3 steps to the sea and then on pure sand! Beach chairs are enough available, also without towel-reservation! There is a shower and every day there were fresh beach towels. If you want a real sandy beach, can these in few minutes reach.

  • Gastronomie
    6.0

    Small, but fine restaurant. The here no offer as in all-inclusive hotels offer is, goes without saying. But the menu offers wide selection and everyone can be food to their own taste and put together. We were very satisfied with the food and the service at the table very much! Extra desires without surcharge fulfilled! (we had half board). And in terms of cleanliness: there was nothing to complain about! We know that from all inclusive resorts, but very different! The staff is friendly, courteous and always tried, the guests right to make!

Small and quiet cozy hotel with beautiful garden area and a small private beach with rocks and sand. The entrance into the sea is at high tide not always easy. We really enjoyed it. To change recommend excursions (organised) and walks to las galeras and after playito. After a week half board you want a bit more variety, particularly for breakfast. However the service is very pleasant and everything is very relaxed and friendly. Bewertung lesen

A hotel secluded from beaten track. Small (21 rooms) in a lovely, well-kept garden area. Absolutely peacefully located. Atmosphere of a Florida-key villa (reminiscent of hemingway house in Key West). Large balconies. Beautiful rooms, older furniture, but always freshly painted. No tv, no telephone (we didn't bother us). Hotel has charm. Staff friendly, particularly mr Fernando from the reception, the good spirit of the hotel. Manager mrs gillardi open and geprächsbereit with criticism. Restaurant staff willing but hardly fremdsprachenkenntnisse. Very good the service staff Lydia, Carmen, Anna and Esther. Menu was adequate. Breakfast poor but sufficient. Town las galeras could ... 10-minute walk from the hotel, with good shopping possibilities for food. Several good restaurants in the place. Samana original and actually the best address in the cathedral. Republic the place is relatively safe, the population friendly and accommodating. Just a nice place to stay a while. You can get the long transfer time of almost 4 hours (Puerto Plata) gladly in purchase (of santo domingo only 2.5 hour). We felt very much at ease and will be back. Bewertung lesen
