The experience was nothing less than great! My family of 4 enjoyed the friendly staff and owners. Breakfast was superb. It is in a great location for sunrises and for venturing out and about. From someone in the business...well worth the dollars! In fact, it is the best bargain in Barahona!

Room tip: oceanview suite is a bonus

My wife and I stayed here for 6 nights and were very please. The highlight of our trip was getting to interact with the owners. They offered great suggests for places to go, like the beaches around and also tour guides. We ended up going to Bahia De Los Aguilas and thought it was a must see if you're in the area. The pool was fantastic, the breakfast each morning was tasty and the views of the ocean was phenomenal. Overall, we were pleased with our stay. Expect some inconveniences with the infrastructure of the country but trust that you're well accommodated at this hotel.

To spoil ourselves we booked a bit of a more expensive hotel on our journey through DR. The accommodation website showed beautiful pictures and a lot of praising reviews about the hotel and especially the owners. Unfortunately they weren't present.
After a long drive we got to the hotel, being welcomed by a local family who were taking care of the house. The house was in a beautiful colonial style and we got the impression that it was more of a guest house than a hotel. The family unfortunately didn't speak any English so we tried to communicate as well as we could in Spanish. They let us know the air-conditioning was not working. Luckily this was fixed in the evening before we went to sleep. She showed us the room and although the room was very spacious and the view was beautiful, we were quite disappointed. The downstairs area was not a common area but it was "claimed" by the family that lived there. It felt like walking through their living room to get to your own room, their personal stuff everywhere. The room itself was nice but the bed was not very comfortable. Everytime my partner would turn I would wake up and visa versa. The mosquito net was too small for the bed. The bathroom only had cold water in the shower and there were tiles missing from the floor, filled up with gravel. There was also a tile missing from the (by the way; gorgeous!) jacuzzi, showing all pipes and drainage underneath. The toiletpaper holder had green mold on it and some power sockets were broken, showing wires. What supposed to be the highlight of the hotel was the balcony. The view was amazing if you would ignore the broken balustrade and the ripped cushions on the chairs on the balcony.
They also have a lovely swimming pool but unfortunately the bottom was full with mud and sand and they only cleaned the pool on the day we left.
All in all I think the owners do not know in which state the house is when they are away because as I said, the reviews were very positive when they were there themselves. The people that occupy the house might not have the same idea about what a guesthouse/hotel/B&B is. If I pay about $100 per night I do not expect a place where there are no towels on arrival, she has to find a key because she lost it, the a/c needs to be fixed, the swimming pool is not clean, the living room is a mess etc.
I would really like to come in contact with the real owners so I can show them some pictures of the mishaps and hopefully they can rectify it before they will get more unnecessary negative experiences, because the potential of the house is amazing.

Hello Sander, thank you for taking the time out to review us. I am sorry your stay wasn't to the standard we typically provide. We ended up closing the B&B because we were getting similar feedback to what you have said in your review above. We are at a point of making the decision not to be open when we are not here at the hotel. It is so difficult to get good people that will work to the standard that we set. In fact we are in negotiations with our third manager in the last 3 years and we are hoping that things will work out with this one. As I said, if not we are just going to close from July through to November until we return every year. Please, if you are ever this way again call or email us so we can have the opportunity to make it up to you. Kind regards, Norm

Breathtaking view, seclude and quiet. I would definitely stay there again. Staff was very hospitable, nice and easy going.
Location is centrally located, facilitating the visit of the south side of the Dominican Republic.

We spent two days there. It was a good time, totally relaxed,swimming at night and exploring during day time was our routine. Jatna and her husband took care of us, she called to the restaurant every night for order our dinner, she gave us valuable information about the towns around, it was really nice to meet them.
