We loved staying here. The breakfast was so yummy! Fresh juice every morning. The rooms were clean, comfy and air conditioning worked great. Would recommend to anyone. The pool was kept very nice too, perfect temperature. The groundskeeper was constantly working and he did a great job, the place was presented nicely.

In this small and very individually designed location everything is right: Days start with a good breakfast, can be continued with a stay at the pool, a short walk to the beach or a sightseeing trip on the peninsula Samaná, and should definitely finish with a wonderful dinner at the hotel's restaurant. The French inspired kichen offers a variety of... More

I hope that readers take these reviews as seriously as I do...This place is beyond perfect for visiting Las Terrenas. I didn't want to spend a lot and found this hidden gem. The hotel is hidden on a side street obscured by magnificent foliage located a short walk to the beach. The rooms were 2 level bungalows that were very... More

We stayed here in early January and overall, I would recommend to anyone on a budget. The rooms have a unique, kitschy ocean theme. The staff are very friendly, provided cleaning, clean towels and water bottles daily. There is free wifi, free parking, breakfast included and our room was fairly clean. The hotel also has an outdoor restaurant/bar, but we... More

Beautiful, quiet place. The garden is gorgeous and you feel like you are entering a secluded little paradise. The room was clean and really nice.

This hotel was fantastic!!! The owner and staff were extremely friendly, and bent over backwards to make our stay enjoyable. The villas, public places, and pool, were exceptionally clean. Breakfast was included in the price, and the food was delicious and prepared as requested. I wouldn't hesitate to come back here again

Six stars aren't enough for this lovely little hotel. Rooms with lofts have been lovingly designed and decorated. Gardens are lush and inviting. Pool is divine. Breakfast to die for and wonderful little restaurant. Best of all is the amazing customer service. Could not have felt more welcome and well looked after. Seriously wish we could have stayed more than... More

Good morning and thank you for taking the time to write a comment on our hotel. That said I think you're very disrespectful of the great majority of our guests. You can not afford to say that given your experience in other hotels can give an "honest" judgment, implying that other clients (95%) are liars or do not have your... More

We arrived at night and were immediately charmed by the beautifully landscaped tropical garden. Our room, set in a 2 room bungalow, was also attractive and arranged as a small loft with a double bed on the ground level and 3 single beds on the higher level. It had a minimalist but quaint and airy deco and lots of privacy... More
