Not a bad place, staff is helpful. But... not enough cutlery, hot water is gone in a minute, and we got a pool in the bathrooms after taking a shower. It is advertised as a 24-reception available and one night we went out for dinner and when we came back, it was not even late, no one in the reception to open us the door. Another guest was passing by and opened the door for us. The pool is dirty. Pricely for what you get.

This place had everything I was looking for: pool, beach, local restaurants and clean! We booked two boat cruises from a shop a bit down the street. We had the cab driver stop at a grocery store in Boca Chica so we could stock up on food. (The place has a small kitchen with housewares. Bring a lighter to light the stove.) The pool and grounds are beautiful. The public beach is just a 5 minute walk from the hotel. You can rent umbrellas/chairs from folks there. (And some are included if you purchase food from the restaurants.) The beach directly in front is shallow with some seaweed, but perfect to just cool off in, the public beach is big and overall clean. The staff was great, I left my camera, and the called the cab driver and he we drove back to pick it up! (The arranged transport, $50.)

Great place, very mellow, pool area and beach very nice. Quiet, good internet and great accommodation for the price.
Many restaurants to choose from within walking distance. Good for walking on the each and watching the sunset.

Great place. Mellow during the week. Nice pool and ocean front areas to relax. Room clean and fine. Water pressure low. Beach is small in front and shallow to swim. Cash only was unexpected. Would stay here again just for the pleasant and mellow oceanfront.

We had the deluxe family Suite - and it was just perfect for us. The space is very comfortable and spacious. The rooms are meticulously clean. One bedroom had a big king sized bed and the other a queen. We had some trouble to get the hot water, but this was fixed by the staff in like 15 minutes. (the batteries on the boiler where old and needed a replacement). The view from the windows is sideways to the green garden, but the hotel also features a big nice terrace in the garden with a small bar (that never was open, when we have been there). The beach in front of the hotel is quite small, but only a short walk away (c.a. 300 meters) opens the busy public beach area with a lifeguard and lots of space, if you need more beach, or prefer bigger crowds. The wifi was fast enough for our apple-tv to receive netflix, and that is all we ever wanted.

I have stayed at this hotel 3 times in the past & have over looked the lack of warm running water, friendly staff and cleanliness of bathrooms.

I surprised my 86 year old grandmother and Aunt a trip for a Christmas gift to DR for the first time and prepaid for the 2 bedroom suite in full with tax & room paid in full.

On our arrival the front desk woman informed me that I owe more money due to the exchange rate changes since my reservation was already made and paid. I have never heard of such thing!!! Why would I make a reservation and pay in full?

The bathrooms were dirty with spit on the sinks. 2 out of the 7 days we had no running water. Showers did not have any hot water and the shower heads drip water instead of actually working.

They have many dogs on the property as well that are locked up in cramped little cages in the heat and sun with no food and little water. As I have stayed there in the past there have been many deaths in the care of their property cats and dogs. With no food and water. Unexpectable!

I do not recommend anyone to stay there with a heart for lives of animals.

I will never give them my business again. I feel they are taking advantage of there loyal customers and that fact that I paid my room in full months prior and still looking to rape their guest of there money.

They have lost a long time client and visitor to Juan Dolio, Dominican Republic.

Very bad service and management!

My only problem was it took a long time for the hot water to kick in. They have a high

tax also, give you an example, room per night $75, stay three nights $225 plus $71 for

tax, total: $296.00, very kind receptionist and workers. restaurants on the same street.
I would stay there again and would recommend to family and friends.

We were very happy with D'Franchecis- quiet, clean, charming, loved the in-room kitchen, and the little gate that led right onto the beach. I would definitely come back again. Two tips- better to buy any fruit or veggies you might want to cook in the city- they are very expensive in Juan Dolios. Also, there were mosquitoes in the room, so maybe consider bringing a net.

- The hotel is perfect . I stayed in room 6 , when we arrived everything was super clean ' the room has a small kitchen , big bed , big bathroom ! . Everything looks just like in the pictures ! Very cheap as well , it was about $75 usd .

Only complaint is I asked for extra pillows and it took very long to get them ' but I wasn't going to sleep when i asked for them so I didnt mind that at all .
Another thing is they "dont allow anyone in the pool or beach after 6pm" but i think is more of a say than do .

Overall me and my partner enjoyed this hotel to the max 🇩🇴💕

Excellent stay, cozy quiet-- best kept secret. Calm area, supermarket and restaurant nearby. Calm oasis-- I look forward to be back. The beach is better to the left a few steps away. Having a kitchenette is perfect--Will bring more snacks drinks next time.
