The hotel was just okay, the staff was friendly. If you're looking for something super cheap which was my case then yes stay here. There was no hot water what so ever. So don't expect hot water. The rooms were clean. The beds are not comfortable. They did have a restaurant and bar downstairs, and different tourist packages that ranged...

The staff here is great. Be prepared to have to speak some Spanish as many of them are not bilingual. The pool area is beautiful. The restaurant was good too for some basic meals, not fancy. They have wi-fi, though it was spotty at times. It is located outside of Santo Domingo so u have to pay the 200 Pesos...

Is a HOTEL not RESORT. The a/c and TV it wasn't working. The menu in the restaurant. Call restaurant?? they didn't have everything in the menu. Going outside you can see you are not in a safe place. The only positive they have is 24hrs security. This hotel is located in the Capital of Santo Domingo. Is nothing entertainment around....

The room we had was pretty big: 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen and living room. The room's air conditioning was pretty functional, I was very pleased with that because it's SO HOT in Dominican Republic. However, the maids did a poor job keeping the room clean and fresh. My feet would get really dirty if i walked around barefoot...

My room was adequate. I had my family there and they enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi. I didn't care for the food but I needed to sit and relax after a long day of site seeing. My only negative is that the water pressure fir the shower was week.

This resort is a good value. The rooms have kitchens so you can cook in your room. The hotel offers a free transportation service to and from the beach as well as the supermarket. Within the resort they have a restaurant as well as a nice pool. The surrounding area isn't so nice but the price makes it worth while...

The place is very very run down. The bedside lights didn't work, the room key only sometimes worked, everything is quite dirty, and it did not feel safe to walk around outside the hotel. The place is presumably named for a small aquarium in the bar, the residence of one sad goldfish. Not sure if it is the national cuisine...
