I paid $35/night. Credit cards accepted, but the machine was out of service for at least a week so I had to pay cash. Staff is wonderful, very friendly and helpful. Room has a loud but effective air conditioner. Shower has good pressure and instant hot water. Room and bathroom feel a bit cramped. No convenient place to put toiletries. Breakfast served for 230 pesos, but no restaurant onsite. The latter is a problem. No minifridge, but there is a communal fridge where you can store drinks. You will hear any outside noise in the room. Beds are stiff with only a sheet. Excellent WiFi. Location is on a main street, not far from two liquor stores where you can buy Gatorade and water. Banco Popular not too far away... Honestly, if I'd paid $25/night and the breakfast was included, I'd feel better about the Loro Tuerto. The staff are wonderful, and if you do end up here you'll be fine...but there will be some annoyances and inconveniences to deal with...…
I recently went to Barahona and the hotel I had originally booked canceled on me at the last minute. Hotel Loro Tuerto had been on my list so I drove there and Im very glad I did. They quickly got me 2 rooms for the night, had some ice cold beers at their bar and had a very pleasant chat with the attendant. The room was simple but comfortable and I slept very well, usually I have a hard time sleeping in hotels. Im actually looking forward to going back there within the next few months and will stay there the whole time.
After a bus ride from CaribeTours from Santa Domingo (a polar experience, and the driver refused to turn down the AC), it was a delight to walk a couple of blocks down a moto-frenzied main street and find the Loro Tuerco. It's a wee place, clean, comfy, and amazingly quiet in the rooms, tucked in the back. The rooms are very basic - ours was two beds and little else - but clean, with functional bath, a/c, and wi-fi. There's a nice courtyard if you want to hang outside, but mostly it's a little refuge in a typically noisy DR town. Easy walk to anything you need. Front desk was totally helpful, and you can enjoy a beer or coke at the bar.
We chose this hotel as we were looking for a place in Barahona to spend few days. I must say the town itself has almost nothing to offer...not a tourist place at all. Only few hotels 2-3 star, some decent restaurant, no 1 rent a car in the area. Loro Tuerto was close to the bus station so had the best location. Hotel itself was ok. 9 rooms in total, We were the only ones in the upstairs floor so pretty quiet. Thanks to Johnny for being very accommodating and informative. If you're in the area and without a car the only place that deserve an "adventure" on the public bus is San Rafael beach and river...great place to spend a day out. Fresh fish and seafood very cheap. We got 3 lobsters for no more than 30 usd.
Friendly staff.. quaint, has a haitian , dominican,african feel to the decor.clean and sufficient..close to bus depot And water front.............not any shops for souvenirs in the neighborhood But not far from the malecon.
