I will say that after doing the Hotel/Compound thing, I will never go back to Hotel lodging. Having the ability to cook your own food, relax in a place that is not a 10 x 10 that makes you feel claustrophobic, is the way to go. The owner of this property (Ivan) was truly exceptional at being responsive to booking and communicating the details of my stay there. This was key to being able to be comfortable with booking this trip.
The Apartment was clean and comfortable. The wifi worked fine for email and surfing.
This location is really almost in the middle of the Universities and central areas of Santo Domingo. I did a lot of walking along the shoreline which is paved. You can walk to the colonial section by following the walkway. However other destinations like the malls may require a cab ride/bus ride. The colonial plaza has a tourist information house that will give you a map of santo domingo.
People party along the shoreline and play music loud. This did not happen every night, mostly on the weekend. So if you are a lite sleeper, a set of ear plugs will go a long way in ensuring you get a solid sleep. It worked for me.
There is a restaurant La Parrilla Steak House which is right near the apartments, it is excellent. If you need a break from cooking, this is one of the places I would go.
Nice cozy apartment in a good location
We had a great stay at this apartment. Good location and you have everything you pretty much need inside. There are many small restaurants around the building and small shops. I would stay here again and I recommend this place.
Not a very good experience
I reserved the apartment for some friends from another country and we had a lot of complains the tv and wifi was not working and the ac from the second room as well not that the other was working properly either, there were bugs over the place and the place was dusty, all this and the girl who was supposed to help was not available, overall Y don't recommend this place and will not come back again.
Great Place to Stay!
This is a basic apartment that was great for our needs. It is in a gated complex with a security guard standing watch to open the gate 24-7. It was clean and in a great location. It was super easy to catch a short ride in a taxi to anywhere we needed to go, and some places were close enough to walk while enjoying the amazing weather. We lost our key while we were staying there and the owner was very responsive and helpful to help us resolve the situation quickly. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it is on a busy street/area, so it was a bit loud to sleep at night, but we bought some earplugs and had no problems after that. The view of the Caribbean Sea was fabulous though. Would definitely stay there again.
Great location, horrible management.
The place was dirty, no one welcome you in, the A/C didn't work, the Internet stop working for 4 days, the door handles were broke, the shower head was missing in the bathroom, there was a leak right below this condo and we spend the last 4 days of our stay without water and in top of this our contact person left the country and I didn't have anybody to go to. HORRIBLE, A NIGHTMARE.
All this information is inaccurate or exaggerated, when Jose arrived to the condo he emailed me (email which I have saved), and said that he liked the place, meaning that it wasn’t dirty, You left it dirty after your 14 days stay. The A/C needed schedule maintenance, since the units still under warranty, and are fairly new. The A/C technician was scheduled 3 times, the first 2, Jose agreed to be at the condo, but he wasn’t, and I have to pay for those technicians prior 2 visits. He didn’t spend 4 days without water, this is totally inaccurate. There was a water leak in the condo below, the water was shut off momentarily, and the problem was fixed. I do not provide concierge service to wait for your arrival that service is provided at hotels. I provide you with specifics instructions were to get the keys, which you did. By the way, I let you check in much early, which I could it charge you, but I didn’t, Also you misguided me in the number of adults staying, you made the reservation for 2 adults and 2 children, but actually were 3 adults, I could it charge you for that but I didn’t. In summary, with the explained above, your review is full of inaccuracies. I recommend potential guest to disregard your review and I will recommend to other host that do not rent their properly to you, based on the character of your your statement.
