Karen The owner, she is a very nice lady, loves her animals and cares for them well. The property is located in a very quiet place, and it seems to be secure . The property itself needs a lot of work , all the bedrooms and the bathrooms need to be upgraded . There are no screens on the windows so the mosquitoes are there to eat you alive . The kitchen and the dining room area are outside so there is no covering from the mosquitoes at night time so you're gathering is extremely hard at night time. The living room area cannot be used since is used by the owners cats and dogs .. The furniture needs to be replaced since they have been scratched up and used by the cats and the kitchen area needs to be completely redone. The mattresses are old and very uncomfortable. If you're looking for camping place this will be your place but for the price per night it's a little too expensive . The refrigerator also does not work well . Please be aware and do not be surprised as we were, it is hard to find a new place when you have a large group of people with you. Wi-Fi really does not exist only on the outside back porch where you can get a little bit of signal.. Were expecting something much much much cleaner and homey. Hope this gives you a better perspective than the previous three reviews which I just noticed were given by the same person the same week. Reality check .
we stayed there for about 15 days. karin was super nice and helped with contacting guides. If you want you can use the kitchen, and get food in the town nearby, but there are reasturants in the area. It is only a short walk to the beach, and if you are wiling to hike there is a cave nearby. She offers horseback rides. The tents are good quality and she sets them up ahead of time. we thought it was great! kids are welcome
The place was very nice and we had a good experience with the owner Karen and we did a lot of activities that were options provided by karen
La Hacienda is a house run by a Flemish woman who moved to the D.R to become a tour guide. she has several thing that she provides like excellent horse back riding and great hikes and beaches surround the area.
