Looking for the perfect spot to vacation? Look no further than the Hotel Todo Blanco. My husband and I have spent many vacations searching for the perfect winter getaway location and we have finally found it. It fulfilled all our demanding requirements.
First, it’s all about location, location, location. This hotel is nestled right on the beach in an almost too good to be true peaceful and beautiful setting. The hotel’s architecture is both quirky and splendid, and the grounds are artfully landscaped to embrace the natural plant growth and the terraced terrain. It is also unbelievably right around the corner from the small town of Las Galeras. There you can find all you need: groceries, restaurants (quite a varied selection to suit your tastes each day), small shops containing souvenirs, clothing, jewelry and paintings), and small bars for local alcoholic treats and native juices. Walking in the town is often accompanied with a background of Caribbean music and friendly greetings from the residents.
Second, it is not one of those looming conglomerations of overpopulated lodgings. It is a small hotel, with just 8 rooms, which adds to the feeling that this is your personal space. Each unit has its own roomy balcony, all facing the splendid ocean view. It is the perfect place to perch in between swims and town trips and take in the wonderful sights and sounds of the beach area. The rooms are kept scrupulously clean and are uncluttered, with colorful touches contrasting the white-walled rooms. The bathrooms are large and the multi-shower spouts are a wonderful luxury. There is a small refrigerator in each room to use which is a nice addition. In the hotel’s main lobby, there is a TV, large table to gather around, if desired, and a bottled water dispenser for hot and cold water. There is a restaurant connected to the hotel with staired walkways, which offers breakfast and regular meals as well, if you tire of the walk to town. The manager of this hotel is a wonderful person, full of knowledge and kindness in dispensing it. He has many resources to provide and generous with his time and attention. He heads a staff of delightful personnel who always have a ready smile, greeting, and solution to your problem. There is even laundry service available to you.
Last, the region’s offerings. On this Samana peninsula, there are many nearby areas to experience besides just lounging on the glorious beach of Las Galeras. Outside of town, there are points of interest like a variety of beaches (Rincon, Playita), dramatic beachside cliffs (Fronton), hilltop restaurants (el Cabito), and amazing crystal clear rivers (beside Playa Rincon.) There are also many excursions offered right from Las Galeras. Public transportation can allow you to travel down the road a bit to the town of Samana , where you can experience a more lively town which houses whale watching boat trips (peak season is January-March) or trips to outlying islands and parks. In another direction you can head to Las Terranas, also a bit busier location, with a few other beaches and a town loaded with restaurants and shops. You can venture off in any direction to catch glimpses of other locations, all easily reached from the Hotel Todo Blanco.
So now you see why this hotel, with its wonderful manager, perfect accommodations, beachfront location, and easy access to attractions, has become our perfect vacation spot. See you there!
