This place is a gem, the best thing about this place is the view and the beach right next to it. It is not fancy or cute at all. It needs a lot of work. But the employees do their job right. It doesn't have air conditioner and that the only reason why I would go back. It gets really...

Great value. Amazing location. Great view from common balcony immediately outside the room. Very simple and basic, as expected. Since kitchen was closed, would have been nice if they at least had some sort of cups or coffee maker or water available. But this was a very minor issue.

As many of the reviews below stated, this little hotel is a jewel right on the edge of the sea, on the rocks in between 2 beaches, At night the only the sound comes from the waves hitting the rocks below the hotel. No motor bike noise or loud music. We stayed here 5 days. We had no problem at...

This hotel sets you back in time on an unchallenged location in a charming village not hit with tourists. The hotel is a budget choice, have an extraordinary atmosphere, and seems to have been run by same standards since opening day. The service holds an distinct classic tone you will find in really expensive classic old European hotels. However, the...

Reaching the northern shores of the Dominican Republic you can find all sorts of towns ranging from the very local to the most touristy there are. Río San Juan turned out to be our 1st choice. The hotel is located right by the beach away from all the noise and buzz that goes on in the towns at night. The...

Ok, as all the other reviews have said: this place has not been updated and probably needs to be. But, if you can deal with clean but ratty and stained towels, a few funky pillows, etc., you may just find that the rest of the experience makes up for it. This place has a sort of magical quality, set between...

The Bahia Blanca is without doubt the best value hotel I have stayed at. For $33.00 I had a large clean room with a beautiful view of the beaches and ocean on both sides. There are large balconies that run around the outside on each floor, with comfortable chairs to relax and enjoy the Dominican weather. I highly recommend this...
