                              The location is great, the staff is friendly & helpful. The hotel is clean with great service.

                              The cost of the rooms have gone up since January thirty five dollars.

                              Almost nothing

                              The beds were so uncomfortable, like from 1990's. They need to update this rooms. They still have this tv's that I haven't seen for long time. The telephones was not working and I called front desk 3 times and went to front desk 3 times and believe me nobody came even to check it, forget about fixing it. The door of the room mechanism was nit working properly that every time I let the room I had to try and make sure that the was locked for about 15 minutes. I asked them to fix it and again nobody even bothered to come and even look at it. And also they have this ridiculous parking system that you have to pay and get a token and you lose the token most of the time. It is ridiculous, you are on a vacation or prison you don't know.

                              the staff was very professional and knowledgable, room service was impeccable. during my stay dominican moda(fashion) was been stay at the hotel which was rather exciting.

                              my only complaint was the hotel restaurant that added the 26% tax which cause me to leave a tip until i eat at other establishments and discovered that the tip is included in the 26%. other places broke it down tax - 16% and the tip - 10%. its very misleading when the hotel restaurant combine both.

                              The parking was free.

                              The televisions need to be updated. They are too old and could not see much.

                              Very nice hotel, great price, and best of all, were the 200+ parrots that arrived every evening to the trees in front. We got great photos from ou r3rd floor room balcony. :) Staff was all very friendly and helpful. Safe area, a number of restaurants and a mall nearby.

                              Comfortable, decent value. Safe neighborhood. Attentive staff.

                              They double as an events locations, and the noise from their party tent and dance hall is infernal. Literally window pane shaking. The place is also getting a little raggedy in parts. And food and beverages are way overpriced.
