We continue to make Las Terrazas our singluar place to stay when we do SMA, which has now evolved into 2 trips per year. Staying at Las Terrazas is quiet and comfortable, as even though you remain just 5-7 mins of a walk to the Jardin, it feels like you are outside the city and the bustle of the downtown. Beyond the door on Santo Domingo, you find a beautiful setting of plants stones, fountains and plenty of tranquility. The staff on site makes us always consistently feel like we are at home, bringing breakfast in every evening for the following morning, customizing a wide range of fruits, baked goods, yogurt and juices. The casa is cleaned daily and they do a terrific job of keeping everything to the highest level of satisfaction. We have stayed here now six times over the past 4 years, it remains the only place we would stay. Personally, you can have the Rosewood and all that upscale stuff, which for me is not what SMA is about. In contrast, give me Las Terrazas, which feels like SMA: warm, comfortable and hospitable.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Las Terrazas is a complex of four private casas cascading down a hillside of bougainvillea, lilies, and vines. Ferns and massive philodrendrons fill the grotto. The sound of fountains is heard throughout. It is located an easy 5 minute stroll down cobblestone streets to the Jardin (town center.) Each casa is comfortable, beautifully furnished, and has a full kitchen. Each has an outdoor patio that is completely secluded. ... more less
