We chose this 5 star hotel based on the fact that it was one of the few in this area that had a gym listed in the services. On our arrival, we found the gym was apparently under repair! From the state of the room and equipment, it looked like the gym had not been operational for an considerable amount...

We tried to resolve the situation, but you did not want to listen, and you have attacked my staff first and then me personally. The gym is being repaired, the gym is at sea so at risk the elements and it is possible that there is some problem, everything will be solved in two weeks! Go around the world and...

One of the best places for any practices! Recommend! Our group of 29 pax, spent here 2 weeks and we are very grateful to the owners Gilda and Vincenzo for all that they did, so that we could feel comfortable not only during our meditations, but for all the days long. Thank you for silence of the place, wide, comfortable...

I came here for one week with family and friends and have rarely had an experience like this one. It is not an overpriced place for what it is. It is beautiful pools, houses, resteraunts and people. The beaches are like I have never seen before right in my backyard. I highly highly highly recommend this resort.

We spent a week at Costa Las Ballenas and it was perfect. A good mix of couples, kids, elderly and young. If you like easy and quiet it's a great choice. The owners and staff were fun, helpful and easy going. There are several good places to eat along the strip but Ballenas was by far my favourite. The fish,...

Absolutely lovely property, with extremely nice, courteous staff, and the owners are onsite and always kind and helpful. The pool, grounds and beach area are beautiful. The rooms are extremely clean and comfortable and well worth the price we paid. The ONLY cautionary advice is that we were not particularly impressed with the neighboring town of Las Terrenas (noisy, touristy,...

We had a very pleasant stay at the resort. It is not in downtown las terrenas but we preferred this location. It is right on a beach path making it easy to explore the beaches and restaurants. The food was very good. The rooms are very large and clean.

This resort is pristine and immaculately kept. Playa area was beautiful with hammocks, chairs and palm umbrellas. The pool was stunning, and you can have food and drinks delivered there. The beach is a stone's throw out and just gorgeous. Managers Vincenzo and Gilda have done a wonderful job with the resort and the restaurant/bar. Sesame seed tuna is to...

Such a nice location, but the service really has to improve: yesterday was nice, but today it was disappointing. Took 30 minutes to get a cup of coffee for breakfast, I was not able to get a fresh towel for the pool and they forgot our appointment for 2 massages we made yesterday, so we don't get a massage.

We visit Las Terrenas a couple times a year and this time we chose to stay on the Playa Bonita side of town. Our first night at another hotel wasn't very good so we left in the morning. We soon found Costa Las Ballenas and decided to give it a try. We met the friendly owners as we wandered onto...
