Beautiful colonial architecture with colonial Sto Domingo at your door step. The colonial rooms are spacious and nicely decorated with modern bathroom facilities. An expensive hotel but great for a romantic get-away or celebration. Apparently a davorite for Zfrench businessmen but other tourists as well. A drink around the pool in the evenning is s must.

We visited Hostal Nicolas de Ovando (HNO) in late Jan 2013 and finally got a chance to seat down and share my experience; it's a tad long, but you might find it useful if considering this hotel when visiting this beautiful island and city. HNO enjoys a great location, with historic architectural beauty, and a Four Star atmosphere. Most of...

My boyfriend and me stayed here two nights after our 8months trip thru america. This isn't just a hotel, it was the residence of the first gouverneur from the island (nicolas d.o.) and that's why it doesn't look like a normal hotel, it looks like a palace and you feel like houndrets of years ago...
