Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

El Gallo is one of the best kept secrets on the North Coast, and I don't want it to be a secret any longer. The villas are charmingly and comfortably furnished. When the morning light shines through the beautiful wood, it glows ruby-red. The food is absolutely fantastic. Locally grown, beautifully presented, and tons of it! Bryn and Ernesto are gracious and generous hosts, and their staff are lovely and talented and so very kind. I wish I could spend every weekend at El Gallo!

What a treasure! Far enough to feel like a true escape but only 15 minutes from Puerto Plata. This is real deal- authentic Dominican cooking and breathtaking countryside views. The perfect place to relax!

I was fortunate to be directed to stay at El Gallo Ecolodge. It was amazing. Soon as we arrived we were overwhelmed with amazing views and breezes. Food was great, people were better, and the workers paid attention to detail (along with my curious 2 year old). My wife and kids enjoyed the overnight stay. Living accommodations were cozy with a great shower. Seriously the pressure has been the best I felt on the entire island. They even brought out puppies for my children to play with. It felt like home but looked nothing like it (I’m from New York). I never wanted to leave the beaches but I’m glad we did. Kids loved the animals. Parents loved the breezes and views. I will definitely be back for a longer stay.

This is a MUST! We had the best time at this magical place. It feels so good to be that close to nature! Great view, great people, great food, animals everywhere. We had so much fun with everyone we met at this place, they are so nice and friendly. The rooms are clean and cozy, they have hot water, wifi, bbq, stereo system, everything you can ask for. We will definitely go back and recommend to our friends and family.

I had such a fantastic time at El Gallo Eco Lodge on my first trip that I insisted a friend accompany me. The first time was wonderful; this time was beyond wonderful, The food (vegetarian) is so fantastic. The hosts, Bryn (American) and Ernest (Dominican), and their children and cats and chickens, etc. are so gracious, warm welcoming, professional, and accommodating.

A must go! From the start to finish a perfect getaway. Loved they arranged the transportation so we could just enjoy the mountain views Once there we could feel the stress of daily life disappearing at this tropical oasis. The views are amazing. And the hospitality by the owners sublime. Very romantic cabins nestled in nature. Swinging on the chairs or huge porch swing over natural wood floors was fun and relaxing. There is a nearby cave with a river. Food is heavenly and made with loving care. So delicious yet healthy! Hated to leave but will return often to this special peace of heaven.

In one word amazing! The place, the scenery, the food and of course our hosts Bryn and Ernesto. Totally worth it and I couldn’t think of a better place in Puerto Plata’s area to hang out for a day. We will definitely come back!
