Lovely old style hotel in the heart of the capital city. Room was on the small side but comfortable. The plus here was a balcony with a view of the sea. Staff were very helpful and accommodating. Breakfast was included and was really good. The hotel is a maze of buildings and at first the dining area was not easily...

Cozy and friendly hotel. Clean rooms, spacious in a tropical atmosphere. Prompt service. Near the center of the city. Congress facilities were perfect, although they can't host very large groups. Security available day and night.

Our dive group of 20 stayed here for a week of diving and relaxation. When we arrived at the hotel, after 22 hours of travel, the staff took us to a separate conference room to check us in, giving us wet towels to refresh us and drinks. They then showed us to our rooms, where our luggage had been delivered....

We first stayed here over 15 years ago, when it was a charming historic waterfront hotel. It's now overbuilt and teeming with tourists. The location is great if you like watching cruise ships and the requisite vendor tents are just around the corner. Better to stay at The Champs on the hill in Portsmouth for a real Dominican experience.

However the Fort Young has remained true to its historical legacy and has taken care to maintain the integrity of this Fort which has been around for over two centuries. Over the years we have made additions to rooms and other amenities to cater for more persons who...

Excellent hotel. Very clean, staff usually very friendly and helpful. Diving and land tours were excellent. Expect to wait for food to be served at times. In fairness, we were with a large group and it was during the same time that the local Carnival was going on.

Three of us came here mid-morning for brunch. One of our group had stayed here previously, and long-term, so he knew what to expect. We got a seat on the veranda facing the ocean and there was a nice breeze. The breakfast was a buffet with a decent selection of fruit (papaya and different types of melon), 2 juices (the...

Would not stay here again. This place needs to be redone ! cleanliness and empathy should be learned. Front desk staff act like you are bothering them if you ask a questions and do not listen to any of your requests.

We book this hotel before we realized it was the Islands Mardi Gras. We had a wonderful time there. Hotel was very clean people were very nice only thing I didn't really like was the buffet but I'm not a buffet kind of person. Both bars had great food.

My rating is based on having 2 different rooms one of which was possibly the worst hotel room I have ever had and I have stayed in many, many hotels. I arrived late at night and was checked in to room 501. The room was very small and the bathroom was minuscule. That wouldn't have mattered if there had been...
