Overall I enjoyed my stay and appreciated the friendly accommodating staff, and pool area overlooking a beautiful ocean cliff side expanse.
This a great place to relax and be by your self from the pushy hectic over crowded hotels. There are a couple nearby that pack them in like in a sardine can. The guests are a combination of longer time residents and older travelers.
There is no direct access to the sea but the pool area is very nice and overlooks a type of endless sea view expanse at the low end, 5 to 10 feet, of a choral palisades cliff that rises to over 50 feet at the eastern end. I would have loved a shaded lounge much closer to the sea cliff edge and the pounding waves. I could have taken the lounge chair nearer to the cliff edge.
About a less than 3 minute walk to the west of the pool area just past a vacant former resort lot begins an endless continuous string of beautiful beaches and higher end condos and resorts. Makes for a great morning or afternoon beach walk or exercise.
The hotel was very clean but with very worn furniture and fixtures. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. There is a small grocery store in the premises and in which you can place a small order or you can take a $30 round trip taxi ride, 20 minutes each way with an hour to shop, at the supermarket at San Pedro de Macoris the formerly 2nd most important historic port city now much run down but a great fountain of professional baseball talent. There is also an excellent local cuisine restaurant 3 blocks away, El Concon.
The area is a hotel strip rebounding from its glory days before Punta Cana. At about 40 minutes from Santo Domingo, it now is a condo haven for those with where with all that live and work in the capital.
