Large, "stately" hotel in Santo Domingo. The rooms in the top floor are way overpriced, and the ones on the other floors have this really old feel - dark blue carpet, yellowing walls, grim lighting in the bathroom... not a very pleasant stay.
The rooms with a view to the pool are OK, the rooms on the other side are very close to a very noisy backup generator that kicks in several times a day, including night time. The poolside bar is pretty nice. The restaurants inside, charmless. The taxi syndicate that the bellhops will call for you operates at what amounts to ripoff prices considering that their cars are just as beat-up and their English just as broken as the cheaper car services like Apolo. The charm of the "cotorras" flying in the trees of the parking lot quickly wears thin -- they're noisy, dirty birds that will cover your car in excrement should you park in the wrong place.
Do yourself a favor and stay somewhere else, come here when they have special events or for evening cocktails by the pool.
