Amy Adejokun Section editor

Residencia del Paseo is right in the heart of Las Terrenas just across the road from the main beach and restaurants. Although the hotel sits in prime location, the rooms leave a lot to be desired. A simple frill free option for travellers on a budget who also need a private kitchen (every room has its own kitchen). The hotel could do with a good clean, especially in the rooms. A below average base to explore the rest of the peninsula from.

    Location 8.5 /10

    The hotel is in the centre of Las Terrenas on the Samana Peninsula in the east of the Dominican Republic. It is adjoining the del Paseo shopping area that is also part of the hotel. There are lots of bars and restaurants in Las Terrenas, as well as some of the most beautiful beaches in the country. Santo Domingo, the capital, is about three hours away. Las Terrenas is about 45 minutes from the town of Samana, the capital of the Samana peninsula.

    Accommodation 5.70 /10

    There are 63 rooms in total (nine rooms per block of which there are seven). All are slightly different, either in décor or in layout. Every room has a kitchen with a small portable gas hob, fridge, sink and utensils. There is a television (old generation) and air-conditioning in all the rooms. The bathrooms leave a lot to be desired - fixtures and fittings feel unstable and botched, especially the shower curtain rail which kept falling down. There are few toiletries here, so make sure to bring your own. Rooms have balconies with mosquito screens, a table and chairs for meals. Room service comes from Bruno's, a snack bar that is part of the shopping area.

    Décor wise the rooms are pleasant enough, but the interiors feel shoddy and everything needs a good thorough clean. The owner has tried to add a few reminders of the Dominican Republic with a few pieces of Haitian naïve artwork and wooden masks that double up as lampshades in some rooms.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    The two-storey accommodation blocks are fronted by a garden with a pool that needs a good clean, and a small children's play area. There is a restaurant and bar, 'Los Hainos' (the country's aboriginal Indians), by the pool and continuing past the thatched-roof pavilion, is the shopping area and finally the beach across the road.

    There isn't much to the hotel, with guests using it more like a base for a few nights before continuing onto another area of the peninsula. There is complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the hotel as well as a private car park. In peak season the hotel staff organise BBQs in the garden. There is no spa, kids' club or gym onsite.

    Food and drink 5.70 /10

    The options at the hotel aren't groundbreaking, but if you're hungry and you really can't bear to explore the streets that run on both sides of the hotel, then there is 'Los Tainos' restaurant and bar at the pool and 'Bruno's', a snack bar in the 'paseo' (the shopping centre). Room service comes from Bruno's. The hotel doesn't include meals in the rates and most guests tend to prepare their own meals in the equipped kitchens.

    Beach 8.45 /10

    The beaches in Las Terrenas are some of the best in the country. Expect to find fine golden sand lining fluorescent blue waters for miles. The beach is just across the road from the hotel and is lined by small restaurants and bars and although the area is fairly animated in comparison to other areas of the Dominican Republic, it remains fairly manageable, especially off-peak.

    To know

    Stock up on drinking water!! The hotel doesn't provide any and as tap water isn't fit to drink, we didn't find a drop to quench our midnight thirst anywhere onsite after the bar had closed.

    Las Terrenas is a primarily French area and has a thriving French community, hence why most businesses are French-owned, including the Residencia del Paseo.

      A million light-years away from all other resorts in the country, we uncovered the Acaya, a charming little hotel with 20 guestrooms, a family-like convivial atmosphere and a grill restaurant, right on the seafront. Of course, there is no pool and very few amenities but you will just have to cross over the road where you will be able to make the most of heavenly Playa Bonita. Moreover, the surrounding area, host to the authentic little village of Las Terrenas and the waterfalls of El Limon, does not lack points of interest!

      The charming boutique Hotel Atlantis, is located a short walk from the centre of Las Terrenas on the Samana Peninsula and it is right on the beach - and what a wonderful beach it is! One of the first hotels to be built on the peninsula, it was taken over by Frenchman Gérard Prystasz, (the private chef of former French president, François Mitterrand), so the food and restaurant setting are worth the detour even if you're not staying at the hotel. Quaint and decorated in a simple yet tasteful 'island' style, the hotel is of a very good standard - a really great hotel all round that sails right into our top spot for Las Terrenas without a doubt.

      • Location 8.75

      Sublime Samana, part of the Small Luxury Hotels label, is a five-star hotel located within a large holiday complex in Las Terrenas. The hotel is great if you want spacious contemporary accommodation on the beach and if you want to be left alone by hotel staff. However, despite officially being a boutique hotel of 18 rooms, it doesn't feel like being at boutique hotel nor does it feel very intimate due to its location within the larger Viva Residence. The hotel looks fairly good but service and facilities need a bit of improvement. Unfortunately for Sublime, it fell a star short of being top-notch for us.

      Featured for the sixth year running on the Condé Nast Traveller Gold list, The Peninsula House is one of those luxury guesthouses that will transport you to a time passed while providing guests with all the expected modern-day amenities. With only six rooms, the colonial house is half-way between a maison d'hôtes and the home of the owners; art collector Marie-Claude Thiebault, partner Cary Guy and her grown-up son, Thomas Stamm. And we'd have to agree with Traveller - The Peninsula House truly is the best hotel in the country. The tropical Victorian plantation house sits on top of a hill looking out to the green exotic surroundings and the iridescent turquoise waters below, amidst well manicured gardens - and that's just the outside.
