“A truly spell binding place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2013

Well, we discovered another incredible hidden place here on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic! If you follow the signs, you might give up! Be patient, it's only about 3-4 km from the main highway, #5. It's a little tough, but well worth the little ride. CAUTION: if you are in a little car with 4 people & 4 clyinders, it probably won't make it up the last 2-300 meters. It's at least a 45 degree hill I think.
Julie & Thierry & their 4 kids are a lovely young family from France.
The accomodations are unique in the Dominican. The property is so tidy & clean, if I still smoked, (quit 4 weeks ago, aaaarrrrggg) I seriously would put the butt in my pocket!!.
The food is just like any 5 star restaurant - absolutely incredible.
Julie (waitress) & Thierry (chef) are a very friendly couple that don't speak English.
That was not a problem, my fiance and her adopted French Hermana took care of that!
The views are fantastic!
A perfect place for a young couple to honeymoon!
In short, I am impressed!
We shall return!
Tom Duncan, Canadian & mostly Dominican now!
Oh, I forgot, there is a secret road, mostly paved, if you can find it!

Room Tip: Tip- Just go there! The tiny resort is brand new, less than 1 year young! Lots of pictures on thei...

For the adventurous spirit who enjoys fine French food. This place is off the beaten track and I do say beaten, most would give up on the road up but they would miss out on a great experience. The accomodations are in Safari tents, but very luxurious with a great decor, bed, shower and bathroom. The mountain air is cool and you sleep like nowhere else! Thierry and Julie invite you to their restaurant as if into their home and the view of the bay is breathtaking. The 3 course meal is phenomenal and many outsiders leave their hotel buffets and chance the ride to savor the meals. Don't forget the Breakfast as it will not disapoint.
