However have seen worse in much, younger establishments....

Stayed there for a few days in August, 2014. Room was good and quiet, bed comfortable and internet fast. Good workout room though a bit of a hike to the back of the hotel. Service was friendly and efficient. Will stay again.

Great hotel with a good view to the sea. The staff is really nice, friendly and know English very well. They can handle anything you'll ask. Make sure to stay in the club floors if you come to business so you could work quietly with nice food and no worries.

The lobby is decorated with numerous photos of famous visitors from that era; among the more familiar names are Rafael Trujillo, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and Errol Flynn. There are also pictures of more recent visitors, such as Al Pacino. The hotel staff was...
