“Best possible experiance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2008

People giving reviews are ridiculous.Vicente,Wesito,Maurico all went to this faboulous hotel.W e had a wonderful time Cris the manager we love ,love her dearly. Anna the cook is fabolous and Vicente is truly in love with her cookin making her a very hot addition to the staff .We say this because we are frequent guests of the establishment since our arrival on 2005.AND WE WILL BE BACK IN FEB. OF 2009.

This place was right off the freeway, that was a plus for such a big country... but the service wasn't that great. The room was okay, but when we asked for towels, they were stingy and we had to ask 3 times! My boyfriend and I were disgusted by the sorry food, you'd think you couldn't really mess up a ham sandwich! The energy was not there, the staff definitely needs to step up the smiles and management needs to make sure they are clearly there for customer service! I know that those essential things would have made a great deal of a change of how I experienced hotel acuarium. Every hotel should get rated on that.

Two friends and I spent a week at the Acuarium (Nov 5-12). The property was very nice and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. As it was our first trip to the DR and our spanish very limited the staff made us feel at home and that was greatly appreciated. The hotel was guest friendly so I'm sure you singles guys can appreciate that but it was by no means a singles hotel as there were families staying there as well. The grounds were beautiful with a swimming pool, jacuzzi, restaurant, bar and lounge. I'd highly recommend this property to anyone visiting the DR.

This is a fine place to stay, close to the rocky shore but with a daily shuttle to the fine beaches of Boca Chica, less than half an hour's drive. It is also within easy reach of the fascinating Colonial Zone of the Capital, Santo Domingo, the attractive National Aquarium. and the scenic Tres Ojos caves and lagoons.
The Manager, Cristine, is a wonderful Italian lady, very helpful and professional. The staff is friendly, the food excellent and the setting very relaxing, around a fine swimming pool.
I recommend this 4 to 5 star resort enthusiastically!
