Had the BI detox massage and it was thoroughly done, I wanted it hard and that’s exactly what I got, my muscles are completely relaxed now and all my stress has gone. The lady that did my massage was Mercedes and she did a fantastic job and is very professional. Thank you!

Excellent facilities and we have scheduled two other events for 2019. All the services we used were appropriate and all our international guests from 6 countries were impressed by the quality of your hotel.

Love this hotel, the location, the food, the service, the staff, and the quality of everything. The staff is super friendly. I have stayed twice at this hotel and I will continue to use it every time I go to Santo Domingo. Hello to Francisco! great staff member. He was working there in 2008 and still there now in 2019 offering great service at the entrance :)

Hotel Management moved My Personal Belongings from Room
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Hotel Management sent me an email asking if they could remove personal belongings from room as there was a filtration problem (when I left room Air Con was switched off). I was in a business meeting 15 miles from hotel and agreed they could remove. When I returned to hotel late that afternoon to collect new room key reception told me there was not a problem with Air Con and the Spanish Government wanted my room. Disappointing to be lied too. My new room on 5th floor was noisy as it was near lifts and Ambassador lounge.

Mi casa es su casa!
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

This place is a real find and my favourite in the Dominican Republic. I took the upgrade to the ambassador level and with that had the access to the private lounge area with its espresso style coffee all day, snacks and a great light breakfast. It is not an ostentatious hotel and has a real Dominican feel to it. The room was spacious, artistic and I took an ocean view and it had a giant bath tub, great internal spa and jacuzzi. The linen was impeccable and the bed turned down every night. I loved the pool area and the café near it too. The internet connection was strong from all areas of the Hotel, which is a must for me. The staff were excellent and accommodating- Rafael and Andreas on the desk. The hotel taxi driver Antonio is a gem, It was not an expensive hotel and I felt I received great value for money. They tried to make me feel right at home- mu=I casa es su casa. It worked. I stayed twice and will be back soon.
