First, the staff is great. What I’m about to write has nothing to do with service. They got an extra star just for that. If not for them, I’d give this place one star. This hotel is obviously old. The beds are old. The furniture is super old. The towels are even old. The air conditioning takes about 2-3 hours to cool down the rooms...at night. Forget it during a hot Dominican day. They’re using a type that consumes less energy, so it works super slow. Too slow for the daytime. As with many other reviews, I found out that there is no hot water. I was ok with this because it’s hot in the D.R. A cold shower is not a bad thing here. However, if you like a hot shower, don’t stay here. This hotel should be $30-40 a night. They use the beautiful scenery (which they have plenty) to up-charge. The problem is they don’t use that money to upkeep or upgrade the facilities. The restaurant and bar are 3-stars. Food is good but nothing special. Service is 4-stars. There are a LOT of flies! Note to hotel: Use a little money to upgrade the place. Fix the hot water. Kill the flies in the restaurant. They do not mix well with food!

This would be easy to drive pass but a shame if you did. It is low key, friendly, clean and comfortable and the pool makes it fantastic for a short stay on your travels. The scenery is fabulous and close to town but far enough away to be peaceful.

I got seriously messed around by this hotel to the point that despite having a confirmed reservation when I turned up at reception, they told me that they were full and that they had got me an alternative hotel (without hot water) down the road. I think they have quite a serious attitude problem within their management. Would never have anything to do with them ever again.

On a few words, excellent service!!!!!. When my wife and I decided to renew our vows the only place that gave us an answer was Playazul. We were looking for a small, simple and intimate moment for us on a nice place and we found it here. Beautiful small resort with clean and comfortable rooms and amazing views. But the most is the oustanding service!. Alessandro let me tell you that he is amazing. He made our ceremony and stay perfect. We got a beautiful set up for the ceremony and was more than we expected. Many thanks also for Vanessa, the wedding planner, great job!!. And last for our priest Neftali and Felix, who became our photographer!!. What an amazing guys!!!. Thank you all from Marcelo and Amy!!!
