Nathalie: “We vacationed together with my husband, I can safely say that this is the first such place where one wants to come back again. We lived on the third floor with windows overlooking the lake. Very quiet and peaceful all around. The building is not new, but all very clean and cozy. Had a tram ride, played free mini golf, went to the all day bars, visited the lovely coffee shop, it was just incredibly delicious and aromatic coffee. Beautiful pools and fountains. The staff are friendly, welcoming, helpful, thank you so much to them. Even during the hurricane we felt safe.”
The ocean coast here is incredibly beautiful. White sand, clear turquoise sea – a truly paradise place. This beach is one of the top ten beaches in the world. It is surrounded by coral reefs, so there are no big waves and the sea is almost always calm. In the morning the boarding house workers walk along the shore and clean up the piles of algae that are thrown onto the land overnight. That’s why it’s so clean. But algae still build up at the water’s edge during the day and can cause a bit of discomfort when swimming.
The depth is fairly shallow to the buoys, they are fairly close to land. There are no umbrellas on the shore, the shade is only available thanks to the sprawling branches of the palm trees that stand here by the water. There are plenty of sun loungers, they are very comfortable and cushioned. There is a water sports centre where you can rent a surfboard, catamaran, kayak or canoe. They offer their services to instructors who will be happy to teach you.
Timothy: “We went here with my wife. At first it was difficult to get used to a different time zone, we woke up at five in the morning. But then we adapted. Very clean beach, they clean it every morning. Algae is still there, but if they did not clean it, there would be more. Waves are quiet, but one day there was a small, quite small, I would tell, a storm. Animators are good, worked every day without rest, but, however, mostly in Spanish. Not really clear, but colorful”.

Julia: “A magical place. We spent a long time choosing where to stay in the Dominican Republic, but in the end we preferred this guesthouse and have never regretted it. Were worried that because of the humid climate the rooms would be damp, mold or something like that. There was nothing like that. Even things dried out pretty quickly on the balcony. We had a view of the ocean. The balcony has a hot tub and a special curtain so those around you can’t see you taking a bath outdoors. The room itself is spacious, bright and clean”.

Eugene: “Went here in August with my wife. Loved the variety of local food. We went to the main Miramar restaurant for breakfast and lunch. They serve absolutely everything you can think of. Everything is fresh, tasty, hot and fresh on the spot. We were pleased with the variety of alcohol and the fact that it was poured free of charge, even very good quality. Each lodger is given four coupons for visiting restaurants a la carte. Only the French restaurant was chargeable. At night you can have a drink or a snack in the sports bar. In general, if I come to the Dominican Republic again, I will 100% check in to this hotel.

Valerie: “Good attitude of the staff and managers, try very hard to make the accommodation excellent. They smile, help, are constantly rubbing something, washing, cleaning. Broken TV was fixed in 10 minutes. We had a two-storey room because we had a family holiday. It was pleasant that the toilet and a bath is on each floor. Children were especially glad, that is where to have fun, to climb, to be amused. They were given chocolates for bedtime. We found turtles in the river, beautiful flamingos on the golf course and peacocks roamed next to the neighboring Bavaro Beach hotel. The children were thrilled.
