    Superb

    Convenient location, and friendly service

    Followup, and guest's instructions after leaving the hotel, is the only area that should be reinforeced and given special attention.

    Fabulous

    Excelent location. Friendly staff. Many opcions of dinning, lunch, bar, disco etc.

    They give you only one internet access. If you have laptop AND cell phone you must pay 12 dolars for another access. A little bit old and worn out.

    I stayed at the hotel on a business trip, the hotel was well situated, in its own grounds, with a nice pool, and a nice ambience. The hotel has a nice feel and charm, which I noticed was lacking in a couple of the other larger casino type hotels I visited during my stay. I could not fault any of the staff during my 4 day stay, from the girls on reception, to the restaurant and bar staff and the friendly ladies who made up the room. The pool was large and clean and a nice poolside bar and restaurant that was open after a couple of days, once Hurricane sandy had passed. I ate all my meals in the hotel, which has a nice choice of dishes, and not overpriced as far as I was aware, I took the package with breakfast and wi-fi which was a good choice.

    I came by 11pm. No one for warm welcome. I was told I would have a king size. Not available. I was willing to pay for it .Rooms are dirty, filthy. They changed me to a king size bed. Running water was muddy. Staff was aware of it, I had them witness it. I called front desk several times to let them know, no one picked up. I had to use a bottle of water to wash my face, brush my teeth. I have been charged for this madness. I want to be reimbursed. gilbert

    Nothing, I have stayed at better hotels.

    Air condition did not cold the room on the first night checked in. move to another room and still the second room was the same problem. The card key lost it's memory and wouldn't open my hotel room had to walk back to the front desk to rekey the card. Being on my Honeymoon I exspected greater attention.

    This is the best place to stay when going to the Dominican Republic. This statement was made to me by others who have been to many other hotels in Santo Domingo since this trip was my first trip to dr.

    Smaller room than what I expected to be an executive king room. The size of the room on the internet will fool you and it can be compared to any one or 2 stars rated hotel or motel in the U.S.

    Fabulous

    Upon arrival I expressed disappointment at the room which was small with an equally small window. We were transferred to a better room at a slight additional cost. It was well worth it, and we were comfortable during a tropical storm and general wet weather . The staff were excellent and the "Seafood Night" on friday evening is definitely not to be missed ! Its obviously a business hotel but we had a lovely 3 day leisure break there.

    It can be very overpriced so its well worth taking the "executive room" option which throws in free breakfast and light snacks all day in the executive lounge.
