If you are looking for something out of the way of tourist, something simple and relaxing this is the place. Monte Cristi is a wonderful small city out of the way. Hotel is very relaxing and has beach close by.

Room tip: room with a view

I've been here twice. Both rooms were spacious enough for 1 traveler and were clean, if a bit musty smelling. I did have a problem with leaking from an air conditioner but the hotel fixed it in short order. Internet only seems to work adequately in the public areas of the hotel, There's a deck out the back with great ocean views and a beach next door. Decor in the lobby includes a somewhat erotic painting of a woman bathing in a stream as well as 1 massive shark jaw to make you think twice about swimming in the ocean rather than the pool.

I paid $50/night for a double room. Credit cards accepted. For one person the double was spacious...though for two people it might feel cramped. Nice bathroom. Hot-water shower with mediocre pressure. Minifridge. A/C. No WiFi in the room. Onsite restaurant that is mediocre but not pricy. Excellent hotel pool. Excellent hotel staff. Rooms are immaculately clean. Hotel is located directly on the ocean. No stores, banks, etc., within walking distance. A few other restaurants in walking distance. Drinks and snacks for sale at reception. Tour company right after the pier--the piscina natural is nothing special and the coral is 99% dead at Isla Cabra. You'll be fine at the Marbella...

So happy with the experience! We were with a group that has been staying in small locally hotels similar to this property for the last 20 years. We don't like a large corporate experience and choose to stay in properties that are locally owned. The hotel is very low key. No frills! The prices were very reasonable from drinks at the bar to the food. We were the only non-Dominican's in the hotel so we felt immersed in the local culture. It is a popular place for Dominican middle class people to vacation. If you are looking for something fancy.... this is not the place. Stay in Puerto Plata or Punta Cana at an all inclusive if you want to be that pampered! If you are looking for a lot of tourist shopping, don't stay there. There are no gift shops in the area. If you are looking for a lot of people speaking other than Spanish, don't stay there. If you are looking to unplug and be around a lot of friendly people who work hard to earn your traveling money stay there. We had the same server and same maid the whole 9 days that we stayed there. There is no formal laundry service. However, if we put our dirty laundry on top of the bed, the maid did it for us a a nominal tip. We used Google Translate to help when our Spanish was not good enough to understand. Check-in and check-out went very smooth. We were given a discount for using cash! Be sure to ask or ocean view rooms. The hotel was built in the 1930's so the rooms are different sized. The bathrooms are clean but not fancy. Dominicans typically don't supply wash cloths or hand towels so if you need them bring your own. The rooms were clean and the AC worked great! The balcony of the room was roomy and private. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. There was a nice sized fridge with a small freezer for our day trip cooler packs. The staff did a great job of constantly cleaning the common areas of the hotel. If you don't like your room, just ask to change. The management was very easy to work with. There is a ocean view suite that is not much more. If it is available, it is worth it! The pool was clean and cool temperature. The beach next door to the hotel was a local Dominican favorite. The best beaches are a 5 minute drive away. Those beaches were so secluded that we were the only ones on the beach. There are 2 supermarkets in town just 5 minutes away. We rented a car which is the easiest way to get around. Taxi service is very limited in the area. There are no beach vendors and no one disturbing you at the beach. When you did not have Dominican Pesos, the locals did not try to gauge you on exchange rates and were fair. There are several places to eat nearby within walking distance including a pizza place run by an Italian guy. Great pizza! The CoCo Mar restaurant had good seafood and we even met the guy who snorkeled to catch our lobster earlier in the day. I would definitely go back again.

Room tip: Ask for an Ocean View room when you check in.
