Out of all the hotels I’ve stayed around the world, this one has stand out the most. I’m going to leave the best part for last. |First, the architecture and location. There’s a reason why this was the house “conquistadors” chose to live in. Right at the heart of Santo Domingo where the main bay meets the entrance of the country. |Secondly, the elegancy and details of the hotel. The rooms & bathrooms are well thought out while respecting its colonial design. Yes, it is true that internet is a bit sketchy; then again this issue is throughout the whole country and was nothing that the IT man couldn’t handle. This brings me to the last/best part of our stay, the people. The elegance and genuine care from the staff is not found in 5 star hotels that claims to have its finesse. What a beautiful experience. We are thankful to have the opportunity to stay here and reflect on life, the culture, and the beauty of its people.
