Left after 1 night!

Equivalent in front: we actually wanted to stay 1 week, but after 1 night again left! It has started, we had booked and paid for a room with an ocean view (caution: the rooms are probably always free! at the time of booking), but none of them got. One promised us this for the next day. The area made a good impression on the first view. The hotel is small, the buildings are nice from the outside. The beach was great - you have to expect but with sellers, the constantly anquatschen. Also the open restaurant as well as the ... location of the bar between the pool and beach was - at first glance - very nice. At the bar not served but after dinner, as the 'barman' in the kitchen to help out. I would not even in the pool with a diving suit gone. The water was cloudy and it did not make the impression, as if this regularly cleaned. Around the pool were crisscrossing a few unlovely couches and tables - that was it. The food (we had a lunch and dinner, as well as a breakfast) was scary. The choice was very, very small and each time was a part of the food from there was suddenly no cups or more etc. The number of guests at this hotel is really manageable, so that it is incomprehensible, why not you can calculate such things (the dishes was also from IKEA). But the room was the biggest disaster: small, musty, dirty. I have found my bed a wisp of the predecessor, the 2 beach chairs with roles at the legs on (i don't want to speak of bed) hung crooked and crooked moskitonetzhalter - but without a mosquito net. On the comfortable couches gave it 2 old pillows and a blanket as cover - that was it. The closet smelled musty so, that he was not to use. From the window a circa 10 centimeter long screw rankte, yet neither purely went out. The smallest flat screen tv hung on the wall - at least the world. On the balcony was old and dirty with a mere power lines in the air conditioning. There were 2 old wooden chairs without cushions including. The bathroom is basically not to describe. I try it: mold in and around the shower stall, runterhängende soap dishes, trash verbeulter, lines came from the wall, on which something was attached, broken hair dryer, the water trickle from the shower and was cold etc came as. We have stayed in many different hotels in the dom. Repair. (from luxury to easy) and our impression is, that the management is no interest. It is the release of the tourists here in the foreground, but not the well-being of the guests and the interest in them - rather of their money. For 14 years we have been regularly holiday in the cathedral. Repair. - but such a thing we yet did not experience. Tip: better pay a little more and choose a different hotel! read hotel review

We wanted to spend 17 days in the hotel we moved after the first hour but never have already was clear to us we didn't stay here. The rooms were awful, mold plaster fell from the ceiling, the shower curtain has everything only no cleaning experienced, curved shower bar and Hagen just as the trash cans were totally rusted out, the toilet glasses was not attached, the air conditioning system dripped only so before itself, no floors in the closet, which had no fuhrungschine oberre the two drawers and tilt the lower slope in therefore, i get the kettle a ... electric shock, because the management is plain, after 1 hour in the room our friends have changed the night, because it was so smelly but the other was not much better. The beach section was very beautiful but no umbrellas the pool is the grey the water is green and smelled milichig, breakfast well, if you were lucky you got a cup and someone was ready and had bad luck that the coffee had to be cooked again, the hotel could have been nice, if it were not so down would be managed. The guests were mostly in the age of about 55-70. read hotel review

Very quiet, ideal for relaxation. No annoying animation, verkåufer will be kept at a distance, a relatively small, familår gefūhrtes house. Who evening entertainment, show program and di sco searches, is totally wrong. The only downside was the law ūbersichtliche food, well prepared but small selection. Very good distance, a stone's throw to the main street, from there you can travel by bus with public guaguas gūnstig and problrmlos after San Pedro or santo domingo. No luxury, but very pleasant.

14 days no hot water. Room service bad (dirty) a double bed of 1.40 wide. Always the same almost witnessed cold food. The guide not competent for problems. 3 malige complaint because of the cold water without success. A confirmation of the complaints has been rejected. We still have a reisepreisminderung request. Witnesses for the nichtlaufende warm water are available. The existing coupon for a trip could not be used because the hotel only 3 people were ready to leave.
