Stayed here for the second time. I rented apartment 9 and my friend rented apartment 5. I had 5 on my previous visit and liked it. Apartment 9 was amazing. 1 bedroom (larger then some of my friends places in Manhattan) and a huge balcony. We nick named it "the veranda". Router was on the balcony so mornings we'd meet...

I booked my stay at the Perla mid April 2013 despite several negative reviews commented on tripadvisor. Turned out I had the exact same experience that others complained about. I arrived at the gates of this establishment around 9:30 p.m. after a 4 hour bus ride from Santo Domingo. There was no one on duty to let me in.The last...

The price does not reflect the quality of this hotel. Furnishings and my room were minimal standard. There is hot water and a refrigerator but the interior of the room definitely needs a makeover. Good feature is the property is gated and guests are given an access key. The place is generally acceptable for the non discriminating person but overpriced...

First off let me start with the hotel itself. Other than the actual path to the hotel, which is very dark, isolated, and steep, the hotel was fine. It was just as advertised, no frills but adequate.
