The Hotel Playa Esmeralda is on the beautiful beach of Guayacanes, in the municipality of San Pedro de Macoris. This is the area's most beautiful beach in the eastern Dominican Republic. It's a little corner of paradise where the splendid architecture of its colonial buildings with cane ceilings, panelled walls and typical limestone mix with luxurious tropical vegetation. The small fishing village of Guayacanes is the end of this splendid setting, composed of small, colourful wooden houses that actually represents the true Dominican. Add to this the joy of music and the simplicity of the dignified and serene people.

Found on the iconic Calle Las Damas opposite the National Pantheon, is this old colonial house converted into an Accor chain hostel. It was a residential mansion from the XVI century high society owned by Francisco Davila who restored it by joining it to the Ovando House (this union is what today forms the hostel). It was considered at the time as one of the most comprehensive in the city because it had a private chapel known as the Chapel of Remedies, a fort, a strong city wall and a tower-vantage point from where they could see the Port of Santo Domingo. Its stone façade with a Gothic doorway is considered unique in America. The interior retains the original Andalusian fountain. The hotel has 104 rooms with minibar, wifi, safe and hair dryer, outdoor pool, gym, restaurant, bar, room service, massage, conference room and business center.
This is where the famous novel by Mario Vargas Llosa, "La Fiesta del Chivo", begins. The protagonist, Urania Cabral, returns to Santo Domingo and leaves the hotel. It's a five star hotel with bombastic architecture that's ideally located. In its day, it was one of the best in town. Today, it has fallen a little behind. The rooms are clamouring for reform. But it still has great stuff. The breakfast is excellent. The service is the friendliest I have encountered and above all, it has a pool from which you can watch the sunrise (opens at 6:00 am) without the noise from the unbearable Malecon. It's a typical American chain hotel, perhaps a little too big with long corridors (if your room is at the far wing, you'll get a great workout) and somewhat impersonal. There's a casino next door that never closes and you can change money there. At the door, there are always taxis waiting, though it's better to call a fresh one because they are expensive. The communication to the centre is good, considering the hellish traffic in Santo Domingo. It's well connected with the Colonial Zone and with a wonderful neighbourhood called Gazcue.

A small and charming boutique hotel in the heart of Santo Domingo's Colonial Zone. They have taken great care to make this colonial house hotel magnificent. There are a thousand little details like an amazing terrace with magnificent views, a welcoming lounge, and very detailed rooms. Not for lovers of big hotel chains and or huge rooms, this is a different kind of hotel. You can sit in the sun chatting, reading or simply just enjoying your time. Its superb location is just steps away from all of the attractions of the city but it offers a quiet refuge in the evenings. The owners Elizabeth and Edward make you feel very much at home. My stay was for work so it was very short but I´ll return soon to surprise my partner. A GREAT HOTEL
The Barcelo Gran Hotel Lina & Casino is a facility that is situated in the heart of Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic. It has 9 meeting rooms for conferences and conventions, which will give you everything you need for it to be a success. You will have a good time.
Very good rooms. Excellent breakfast. The staff is very nice. I don´t recommend taking a taxi there because they are much more expensive. They have a huge parking lot. The area is quiet and right next to the viewpoint. It is far from the colonial center, but in the case of Santo Domingo, everything is far away (the city is widespread). There are restaurants nearby. The pool is fabulous and there is almost never anyone in it. The rooms are comfortable and have all the amenities.
L'Emeraude Plage hotel is located on the beautiful beach of Guayacanes, the most beautiful beach in the eastern part of the Dominican Republic. It's a little corner of paradise, with beautiful colonial architecture, grey roofs, and limestone walls surrounded by lush tropical vegetation. The small fishing village is a charming place to visit, where you can meet the friendly, dignified locals.
A beautiful two-story building in blue, located in the city centre. The service is great. I stayed here a short time, but I have good memories. A good place to stay if you're passing through Santo Domingo.
