Good hotel
A few minutes walk to the beach and a good restaurant. The owner organised a taxi from Santo Domingo airport for us, and also to the bus station when we left. Bathroom could do with a bit of updating but was fine.

6/10 Good

The bad: This hotel needs major improvement in general. Walls have mold and cracks. Bathrooms have mildew. Mattresses are old, hard, and very uncomfortable. The Good: The restaurant cooks dinner a la carte and food is delicious. Hotel owner, Mauricio, is very nice, always available and very helpful. Maria, and all the staff is very nice and helpful.
