We arrived in Las Galeras and all I could find were typical Dominican hotels. We wanted something special so clicked the "other" button in Tripadvisor and the words "Eco lodge" stood out.
We arrived and Marie greeted us like long lost friends. The cabins are new, clean and cute - perhaps a little small.
There is little cell reception, so I really felt unplugged there.
Marie lent us her personal snorkeling equipment and we went to the beach 10 minutes away and had a great time snorkeling.
I highly recommend this Eco lodge if you want something rustic, rural and quiet. Don't expect luxury. It's a place o unplug and commune with nature.
Marie made our stay even more special. She is a sweetheart.
