I did not stay here when I was at Punta Rucia, however, my friends and I did go diving with Rene and eat at his place in the evening. The diving in Punta Rucia is arguably the best on the island. Cayo Arena has a great reef and the water was incredibly calm. I highly recommend this for scuba divers...

Clean, comfortable & modern boutique hotel run by a gracious host who is also an excellent chef! You won't go wrong enjoying Rene's hospitality and delicious cuisine. And if you give him advance warning, he'll conjure up a special meal for you! We'll be returning again soon!

If like me you believe that it's people who make the difference between good and excellent then you will love this place because the owner, Rene, is one of the nicest people you will meet anywhere. We stayed at Corales for a visit to Punta Rucia and Rene organised our trip to Paradise Island. The rooms are clean and comfortable,...

This was a last minute booking we made because our tour to Cayo Arena was early the next morning. We needed a better address/destination because our GPS took us down a horribly rocky/muddy/less traveled road and both of our phones had died, but we eventually made it. Rene is awesome! He welcomed us and had our room ready. Then we...

Good place to stay for just the basics.....also because there's no better choice in Punta Rucia for that price range. Run by Rene, (german) it's self supporting with its own water and electricity facilities. If you've already travelled off the beaten track in the Dominican Republic you'll appreciate this. He's also the cook, the tour guide, etc. Nice guy, nice...

Breakfast is included and it was a really good one. So, we really enjoyed and recommend this place for you too. Rene...

Punta Rucia is somewhat off the beaten track but well worth the adventure. Found this hotel on-line - it is "off the grid" so don't expect a Holiday Inn. Owner Rene is an amazing cook and can help visitors out with an inexpensive excursion to Paradise Island or arrange for those who wish to go SCUBA diving. He speaks German,...

This review isn't for the hotel, but is for Rene's scuba diving service, which is top notch. My friends and I who went diving with him were really impressed with just how relaxed and low-hassle the entire scuba trip was. We simply met up with him, he had all of the gear ready, he and some guys on the beach...

Corales is a perfect place to stay in Punta Rucia. We are expats living in Santo Domingo and made the weekend trip to snorkel and dive at Cayo Arena. Punta Rucia reminds me of the "old" Dominican Republic ~ dirt roads, little towns, and being able to drive right up the beach to get great fish and lobster at incredibly...

Where do I start? The owner is a super nice and friendly person, amazing cook! he makes you breakfast and dinner at previews request. The place is very clean.

We are a small, ecologically oriented hotel and the North coast of the Dominican Republic, far away from mass tourism.

Breakfast is inclusive and our restaurant offers you for evening delicous fresh meals. Onlz tell us what zour heart desires! Besides fresh fish, seafood, pastas and meat are vegetarian dishes also available. We also offer trekking tours in the nearby Cordillera with rainforest-like vegetation and natural freshwater pools and cascades.

We are happy to organize other trips for them to get to know the country, culture and the indescribable nature. ... more   less
