The owner, Gilda is amazing. She is an attentive host. Had dinner one night and food was good. The beach steps away from the hotel, Playa Bonita, was quite wavy; if you like a calmer waters Las Ballenas might be a better fit. Rooms were OK. Not luxury, but spacious and comfortable for the night. Beware, that you might find...

After having stayed at 3 different places on the island without real water pressure and a hot shower, I got the best shower here! I requested for the bungalow with pool view, good WiFi and a hot nice shower. And I got what I hoped for! Friendly check in by a new guy. He was great. The owner helped me...

We chose this 5 star hotel based on the fact that it was one of the few in this area that had a gym listed in the services. On our arrival, we found the gym was apparently under repair! From the state of the room and equipment, it looked like the gym had not been operational for an considerable amount...

We tried to resolve the situation, but you did not want to listen, and you have attacked my staff first and then me personally. The gym is being repaired, the gym is at sea so at risk the elements and it is possible that there is some problem, everything will be solved in two weeks! Go around the world and...

I came here for one week with family and friends and have rarely had an experience like this one. It is not an overpriced place for what it is. It is beautiful pools, houses, resteraunts and people. The beaches are like I have never seen before right in my backyard. I highly highly highly recommend this resort.

We spent a week at Costa Las Ballenas and it was perfect. A good mix of couples, kids, elderly and young. If you like easy and quiet it's a great choice. The owners and staff were fun, helpful and easy going. There are several good places to eat along the strip but Ballenas was by far my favourite. The fish,...

Absolutely lovely property, with extremely nice, courteous staff, and the owners are onsite and always kind and helpful. The pool, grounds and beach area are beautiful. The rooms are extremely clean and comfortable and well worth the price we paid. The ONLY cautionary advice is that we were not particularly impressed with the neighboring town of Las Terrenas (noisy, touristy,...
