Amy Adejokun Section editor

The small exclusive La Tortuga is simple but extremely peaceful and relaxing. With 10 thatched-roof bungalows located in a beautiful sheltered exotic garden around the pool, there isn't much else to this establishment. However, the rooms are very comfortable, clean and while quite basic, they are colourful and very clean. This is an ideal place to stay for couples and families (there are two-storey bungalows) on a budget and looking for a quiet base to explore the rest of the area from. La Tortuga is just across the road from the main beach in Las Terrenas.

    Location 9.71 /10

    La Tortuga is located right in the heart of Las Terrenas just across the street from the main beach. In the neighbourhood, there are lots of bars, restaurants and accommodations of varying standards. The hotel sits in a small alley away from the main road, so it is rather quiet.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    The 10 bungalows dotted around the beautiful garden look like small Ibizan huts with grass roofs. Bungalows either have two floors - a double bed downstairs and two single beds upstairs - or the one floor with a double bed. Despite their rustic aspect, the rooms are extremely pleasant and due to well-placed windows, they remain cool. All the rooms have air-conditioning and fans. Three rooms have a television, so if this is important to you, make sure that you mention it at the time of booking.

    The beds are sunken into white cement, Ibiza style, and the colour wash walls add interest and warmth to the otherwise very simple space. The huts are very well appointed with a bathroom with a shower (as opposed to a bathtub) downstairs; there are no toiletries so bring your own, although towels are provided. All rooms have a small fridge, plenty of storage, and a small safe (no charge). They all have a small terrace, where there is usually a pleasant breeze, and as the bungalows are far apart enough, guests have lots of privacy even when sitting outside on the terrace.

    The rooms vary in colour although the décor remains more or less the same. Villa n°7 is painted in bright and cheerful yellow while n°9 is painted a calming blue inside.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    Located at the end of an alleyway just a few minutes' walk from Las Terrenas beach, La Tortuga is very simple: 10 bungalows dotted around a beautiful leafy exotic garden. The pretty infinity-edged pool in the centre of the garden has an adjoining pool for children and a poolside bar. There is also free wireless internet access throughout the property. For the ultimate Caribbean experience, there is also a hammock hanging between two palm trees in the garden.

    Food and drink

    Breakfast is served in the grass roof open sided pavilion by the pool in natural rustic surroundings. While lunch and dinner are not served at the hotel, the bar is open from 11:00am-11:00pm for drinks and snacks.

    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

    Although there is no surveillance, the hotel manager does try to implement responsible tourism by instructing his guests to save on water and to be careful to switch lights off when not needed in a welcome letter. The owner lives at the end of the garden in his own little hut, although he tends to let guests be.

      The Villas Mariposas is located across the street from the beach in Las Terrenas on the Samana Peninsula. A small resort hotel of very basic bungalow accommodation in a leafy garden with a main pool and bar, the hotel is the ideal option for groups of friends or families on a small budget. Villas Mariposas is more of a base to explore the region from rather than somewhere you would spend entire days.

      At the heart of the village of Las Terrenas and opposite a superb beach, the Alisei is a hotel of high standards, with a spa, a wide pool and spacious, comfortable guestrooms equipped with a kitchen and a terrace. This is, however, not a resort - no all-inclusive option, activities or kids' club are provided by the hotel. It is a peaceful hotel ideal for couples.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.
