“Canuck Headquarters?”
Reviewed 8 May 2012

First, our thoughts are with you & all Pueblo Pescadores owners & workers who lost everything in yesterday's tragic fire. We spent Apr 24-May 5 in LT enjoying meals & meeting folks that will be missed very much when we next return. It feels awkward to attempt a happy review in light of yesterday's events but here it is.

Travellers! Come to One Love & meet Terry & Rachel. One Love is a relaxed, informal, friendly place that makes you feel safe & cared for the second you wander in. Need a North American food fix? Come here. Need a rental car/bike/accomodations/excursion advice? Come here.
They speak French, English & Spanish, which is very helpful when you only speak English (us) & want to rent a car!

This trip, I was amazed at the number of Canadians staying at GB ElPortillo & double amazed at the number of younger people that wouldn't come off the resort, even the short distance to One Love. C'mon folks, would the resort OFFER to call you a cab if it wasn't safe outside the resort?? Now with the fire, you've missed the experience of Pueblo Pescadores forever. Don't miss the chance to visit One Love & soak up all the advice Terry & Rachel can offer re Las Terrenas town. They got us hooked up with an excellent rental car (Indianapolis Rentals), fed us great food again, & saw that we got "home" safely by cab after we'd had too many drinks one rainy night (& we'd had the too many at other establishments!)

Hope to see you both again soon,
Carol & Gary S

“CHARLIE SANDWICHES are the best!!”
Reviewed 15 April 2012

Great place and great owners! This is an awesome beach bar with good music and tasty food. If you can't tell from my title, I especially like the Charlie sandwiches. They also throw amazing parties once a month that are not to be missed!

“Terry & Rachel Rock!”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

My husband and I honeymooned in Las Terrennas, and I came across Terry & Rachel through the LT travel forum posts. They respond to inquiries regularly so I was determined to track them down on our visit. We are independent travelers, and like to build our own adventures as opposed to the all inclusive, concierge style travel.
There are very few English speaking folks in LT, and Terry an Rachel welcomed us with open arms and helped us to find off the beaten path adventures (even going so far as to call people to let them know we were coming, make reservations for us, etc.). Thanks to them we found the best restaurants, excursion guides, and beach adventures that the area has to offer. I didn't actually even eat at the restaurant, but my husband enjoyed his burger, and the open air bar setting is an awesome place to enjoy a cold beer between dips in the ocean. Our visit to One Love with Terry & Rachel really helped to make our week in LT special.

“Good Food Great people”
Reviewed 29 March 2012

We had heard about this place before we went to DR and talked with the owners Rachel and Terry.. Lovely people.. We took a cab from El Portillo (10$) and walked around the town.. Had a few drinks,and french fries with sauce(daughter brought her own curd cheese to make a poutine) but theirs are good too..They have been living there for a year and are very helpful wioth anything you want to know..I recommend a visit here if you are in the area. Nice to hang out with the locals and get away from the resort.. My hubby walked in 30 mins.. He is 64 but in good shape so he walks fast.. Hi to One Love from Nancy and la famille de Montreal..
