Pained me to do this review at 2 stars because this was one of my favourite hotels that I’ve stayed at more then 20x. When we arrived none of the rooms were ready and we had to wait until 3:30 to even get a room. Fine. Came to the restaurant. I quit smoking so I use a small Juul for nicotine - not a big Vape or vape that emits hume. I was in the restaurant (open) for over half an hour with my family relaxing, and the “supervisor” Carolina came charging at our table like a bull and made us move saying no smoking. She was rude and made a scene. She made us move tables where people were smoking actual cigarettes which stunk. I wasn’t smoking so whatever. I feel less annoyed about not being able to have my vape and more annoyed about the way she startled and spoke to us. Rude and abrasive. Zero manners whatsoever. We also observed her at the bar with the staff displaying the same bad attitude. She seems to just have a terrible attitude in general and not reflective of my past visits here. Ruined my dinner and really left me feeling bad in the hotel considering the restaurant is the only place to get food here.

This Colonial-style hotel sits majestically in a sprawling, park-like setting adjacent to the Jimenoa River, which literally runs through the property. The dining area overlooks the river, and a bridge connects both sides, with a bar and gazebo on the opposite shore. Jarabacoa is in the Dominican Republic’s Central Highlands, withing striking distance of Pico Duarte, the tallest peak in the Caribbean. The climate is much cooler than the coasts. Activities here include hiking and whitewater rafting. This region is well worth a place on your D.R. itinerary. The ambiance here is magical. A tree grows through the center of the dining room, the tall hills serving as background with cows grazing picturesquely. The river creates a constant, soothing “white noise.” If you didn’t know better, you might think you were in the Alps, Colorado, or the U.S. Pacific Northwest. The rooms are small-ish but very comfortable (be sure to ask for a river view). The food in the dining room is excellent. It was so good we skipped driving all the way across town our last night and enjoyed the evening in the outdoor eating area. Children will adore this property. The rustic buildings on both sides of the river have a treehouse appearance, and in the morning, herders lead beautiful cattle through the stream on their way to grazing. I would definitely stay here again.

We had a very pleasant time at the Gran Jimenoa. The staff was most pleasant and the food at the restaurant superb. We agree about the noise at the pool. The only complaint was the pool and hot tubs. They were seriously negleted. Could not see my hand in front of my face in the pool, it was so cloudy. We love to swim after a long day and were disappoined. Lo pasamos muy bien en el Gran Jimenoa. El personal fue de lo más agradable y la comida en el restaurante excelente. Estamos de acuerdo con el ruido de la piscina. La única queja fue la piscina y los jacuzzis. Fueron gravemente descuidados. No podía ver mi mano frente a mi cara en la piscina, estaba tan nublado.

This hotel was very convenient during out trip. Grounds are nice (although could use some cleaning) and right next to the river. Rooms are very basic but have everything you need. Hotel includes a very good breakfast. Parking is easy. Staff is nice and attentive. Close to town and restaurants.

What a pleasant surprise! We decided to have quick one night getaway and waited til last minute so options were quite limited we arrived with very little expectations other than comfy bed ( as that seemed to be common commentary) and some good coldish mountain air! We arrived and while we did have one of the noisy rooms — which made no sense as hotel was empty- it didn’t bother us and we had a great view of river. We enjoyed walking around the property and playground and had fantastic dinner with some super strong cocktails. Breakfast was equally delicious and they even packed one to go for our tween who was fast asleep in bed. WiFi was pretty sporadic but for a family that is Always Connected was nice change to disconnect

The location is great, the room we’ve stayed very clean even though not extraordinarily equipped. Comfortable bed and pillow. Hot water after a while of waiting - but then really hot. WIFI ... well better don’t come if you need to work remote. Big minus for the noise... you can’t enjoy the outskirts of the hotel because of an incredible loud machine (they told us it’s the extractor of the kitchen) ... we couldn’t use the balcony neither fall asleep because of that. And we were lucky to have the room farthest from this machine :( thank god when kitchen stops working around 11pm they turn it off. Another big minus: trash. Trash along the river bed but also trash inside the hotel. In the floor, in the gardens, ont he playground ... Messy when you have a look around ... what a pity ... another big minus: single use plastic cups at breakfast buffet ... you would not believe that a hotel based on nature tourism has no sense of environmental friendly habits. The playground for kids is great, the reception staff helpful. If you really want to unwind it’s not the place to go. If you’re anyway most of the time on treks and adventure outside the hotel ... and you’re looking for an economic alternative... this is your place.

The Hotel is located 3-4km outside of Jarabacoa and the premise is lovely maintained with a direct view to the river (you'll need a car to get around) I used it as a base for hiking and for this you may should use a different location. The Hotel seems to be a popular spot for a family retreat for the weekend. Some of the rooms didn't had warm water and no wifi - what is not so sweet because it's not that warm up there in the region and you want to organize stuff online (but in another room I had later both had been working - but seems to depend where you are in the hotel area). Staff in the restaurant was friendly.

Let me start by saying that this is not a family friendly hotel!!! Multiple times we saw couples kissing and touching too much around the bridge. We called 2 weeks in advance to reserve two rooms for 8 adults and 1 child. We told them how many people we were and that we wanted the room with river view and they said it was fine. On the way to the hotel, we decided to call them and let them know we would arrive by 7pm and they said it was fine and that they went ahead and moved us to the room apartment Doña Carolina 329 because they saw that we were a family and maybe it was a good idea to keep us together. We told them that we wanted to River view because that’s what we booked. They started saying that we never booked the river view and that we had reserved the pool view. When we got to the hotel, they said the river view rooms are only for two people per room and that we have the Doña Carolina 329 room (apartment room). We didn’t care much about it until we got to the room and we saw that the room didn’t have a refrigerator and the walls had cracks on them! It was a very old room. Also the bathroom had stains on the bathtub floor and the shower curtains. Looked like housekeeping did not clean it properly. The bathroom itself was too dim. Those lights did not work properly. To get your breakfast in the morning is a challenge! They can take up to an hour and you have to get up and get the waiters attention. We were told that there was a Karaoke bar open every night. That never happened. They said the pool closed at 7pm but we saw a man and a woman naked in the pool at around 9pm (BTW when they were done, we saw them grab their things and leave on their car so basically they weren’t even staying in the hotel) One morning we told reception to let housekeeping know not to go in our rooms and when we got back they had gone in our room. They are very unprofessional and there is no protocol to follow by employees. Every employee does whatever they like in their occupation. Some towels had stains on them. Some blankets had holes. The only good thing about the hotel was the river next to the restaurant.
