I used to stay here two or three times a year. It was clean, service was great, breakfast was included in your stay and it was edible. It changed owners a couple of years ago, since then it’s become a complete rat hole. I was there for 3 nights (9/20 - 23) and it was the worst experience ever. The first night, the AC did not work. I was taken to two other rooms where the bed was right @ the door. I was then given a fan that did not rotate & only had one revolution. It gets better, I’m washing my hair when all of a sudden the water pressure is gone – I literally finished showering pouring water over my head with the glass they have on top of the sink. The second night – the AC was fixed but I was left without a blanket. Complained to no avail – the third night – no blanket. This is a MOTEL – not a hotel. SHAME, SHAME, SHAME

All I can say is keep looking if you are even considering this place. To start off, we arrive with our 2 very large suitcases and are told that the elevator is broken...that we will have to go through the pool area and up an exterior staircase. OMG...the staircase they are referring to is an old, rickety metal spiral staircase...almost impossible to get our suitcases upstairs and the bonus was that it was raining!!! By the way, if you have been on the hotel's website and looked at any photos of the pool area they are completely opposite of what it actually looks like. Water in the teeny, tiny pool and jacuzzi look like they have not been cleaned in several months. Then we get to our room which was supposed to be a King size bed...what we ended up with was one double bed and one single size bed. My husband went down to the front desk and told them we preferred a room on the lower level with a King size bed and they informed us that they were completely booked up. Needless to say there must be a bunch of suckers besides us. Not very happy at this point, but we decide to get some Dinner since there are supposedly 2 restaurants in the hotel...not quite. We go to the restaurant next door and all that is left is hard, crusty looking food in chafing dishes..no table service offered. The other restaurant is across the street which is called a steakhouse, but a very sorry excuse for one. There is a discotec connected to the hotel and boy do you know it until 4 a.m. when it closes. I did not sleep all night. Other items to note, no toilet paper or towels or water pressure. I honestly can't beleive this place stays open. The next day we found a much better hotel with room service and plenty of ammenities. Don't waste your time even looking at this hotel...there are much better ones in Santa Domingo...try the Dominican Fiesta.

Room Tip: Good rooms do not exist at this hotel...go elsewhere.

To start off on a good note, it is the best place to stay in Bonao. It was fairly inexpensive, we had hot water and they were always willing to provide us with bottled water. On the flip side, the hotel was dirty and not well kept (stains on the floor, broken lamp shades, etc.). The bathroom and sheets were clean though. The hotel would be fine if it wasn't for the fact that loud music is playing until 4 in the morning. It was so loud that I could not fall asleep until it was done. Our floors vibrated because of it. If they would fix that problem then it would be a fine hotel. For now, don't stay there if you plan on getting a good night's rest!

Been there twice and I do not recommend a stay.

No hot water for two days.

Slow service in all areas.

Hotel is old. Carpet is dirty. Overheard other guests complain of dirty bedsheets.

I found a cockaroach in the room, and saw a mouse in the garden next to the pool.

Dance club music reverberates through entire hotel.

I don't know how someone, independent to Aquariuse can ever say this is a top notch hotel.
