Im an American and my husband is dominican. First we were not greeted friendly at all. Then they tried to put us in a flat, one room with a bed, couch and kitchen in one. I told them that was not what was posted on the website and that I wanted my money back. They took us to the room posted on the website. It looked good but the aircondition only cooled the bedroom and it was hot in the rest of the apartment. Roaches over ran the kitchen. We had to buy roach spray. There was a pool but if you want the beach you have to walk or drive a half a mile to the local beach where Haitians bully you in to giving them money.
Did i mention my neighbor beat up one of the workers?
Then the wifi,, you have to go outside for the wifi.
I really did not feel safe and I have stayed at several places in the Dominican Republic including Alma Rosa Santo Domingo.
