Their services here was excellent although I would say that things here are a little bit expensive or overpriced but the services are worth it so I wouldnít complain much about price. The location is great as it is situated near the Metro station which was convenient for some travelers. It is right at the middle of Santo Domingo city which is perfect as it is close to everything. I would say that the internet is expensive for 7 bucks per hour and was that fast but thatís the only thing I feel cheated on, every other thing was perfect. There are many shops outside here for those who would want to shop and also restaurants for those who get tired of hotel food easily. The food in this hotel was great and the restaurant staff was also great. The entire staff I met at this hotel was really nice to me and they did their jobs diligently with smiles and always polite. The rooms are big enough, clean and well equipped with hot water. The bathrooms are big and clean and the housekeeping maids did their job well by cleaning out the rooms daily. I just loved the appealing nature of the hotel building and the lobby here is quite nice. The only thing I didnít like about this place is the fact that they charged an additional mount for internet, in my opinion; it should be added to the main fee and not charged separately. I may come back here if things change.
"Fantastic - highly recommend!"

Found this on Trip Advisor and Frommers, checked out their website and changed our plans to include a few days here - wish we had longer. Great resort, we would go again and recommend to anyone.
Greeted by Carla and given directions to park our rental car - free secure lot. Easy checkin and off to our room.
Junior suite included separate bedroom, kitchen with fridge, stove, microwae, coffee maker, blenders, full dishes, glasses, etc. Kitchen table and chairs, living area with TV, balcony with great view, table and chairs.s
Restaurants and Bars:
Combined restaurant bar area overlooking water. Open from 8:00 to 10:00. Food is pretty good but lots of restaurant choices along the beach.
Immaculate grounds, infinity pool, beach view and access. Great kite boarding area.
Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel:
Beach has great watersports and restaurants and bars.
Calm, relaxing and every guest is treated great by staff.
