This hotel hotel is excellent for people looking to avoid crowds and looking for relaxation. R&R best to describe. It’s also good for people with families and if you need to park you boat or ship even better since it has a private port.

The Bannister Hotel is an excellent option particularly if you prefer a bit of peace and quiet over staying at an all included resort. The rooms are large suites with kitchenette, dining area and living room. My room had an excellent view of the marina and the Bay. The Italian restaurant, The Regatta, is good. Breakfast is included.

A few minor improvements would help. The rooms could use a luggage rack as well as instructions on how to operate the air conditioning, television, etc.

Words can't express my gratitude for everyone at The Bannister Hotel & Yacht Club. The minute that we arrived, we felt that this is a very special place! You are surrounded by the most beautiful view that nature can only provide and combine with the love that everyone provides there makes you feel at home. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the healing time that you provide us at a very difficult time. You welcome us like family and I will never forget. Thank you Roberto and Mercedes for all the love and support, there are no words to describe the gratitude in my heart.
Can't wait to return some time soon to see you all!

This hotel tucked in the mountains is a beautiful place to visit and stay. I stayed at one of the villas in the magnificent complex but had breakfast and dinner at the hotel 3 of the 4 nights I was there. The hotel service is excellent and the staff is very accommodating. This hotel is a 2 hour ride from Santo Domingo but if you like peace and quiet this is the place to stay. This hotel has a marina so if you enjoy boating this is also the place to go.
