We go to Puerto Plata often and thought we would try somewhere different. We really enjoyed this place it is close to the beach with a nice grill restaurant on the beach and a nice restaurant called Green Jack and the food is very good. It was very quiet while we were there the end of Sept. The breakfast is...

The Pros: I loved that this was a quiet place, at least during my stay, which I value a lot. Everyone in the staff was friendly and helpful. Also, the service and food in the Green Jack restaurant was excellent. Everything was delicious! The included breakfast was also pretty good. The room was great too. On things that can improve:...

I was a bit confused initially as I thought it was a "hotel" but it is actually condo-like Villas. They were clean and roomy. There were 4 bottles of water, coffee and ready to be used in the room. The staff also sprinkled about some flowers, which was adorable. The food at the restaurant was wonderful and the drinks were...

The hotel offers a cheap room rate online and a $100 restaurant voucher to get you in the door. This is not a resort. It is a run down hotel in a resort area. The grounds are not kept clean. The hot water does not work in the shower half the time. The A/C doesn't work in the gym and...

It was quite quiet & relaxing and clean. Probably not the resort for the partying kind of customer. Good Wi-fi and had bottled water each day. I walked to the Fortress San Filipe but it was a bit far & through some questionable park areas off the resort area. Best to take a cab or authorized motorbike for safety reasons....

This was by far the nicest hotel that I have stayed at in Puerto Plata with a couple of caveats. First caveat is that there were literally only ten other people at the hotel, it was like I was walking around an abandoned luxury resort which is great for you if you go but I can't possibly believe that this...

It's a beautiful hotel. Clean, good service, tranquil and overall wonderful environment and staff. They also give you fresh bottles of water everyday so you don't have to keep buying bottled water unlike many other hotels in DR I have stayed at.

The hotel and service was great 20 years ago but now it is definitely on the downside. The room was not worth what I paid even though we had a jacuzzi. The food at the restaurant took way too long and the fish was very dry and awful. We ordered to have the food delivered to our room only to...
