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

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,... More

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... More

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... More

Me and my girlfriend just stayed 4 nights with Rene at Corales and are more than happy. The ample rooms are absolutely satisfying, the location is very quiet and the beaches more than beautiful. Rene, a former cook, prepares dinner beyond good... a must! All in all the perfect spot for a relaxing time in the DomRep. The price/performance ratio... More

It is a small hotel in Punta Rusia, the rooms are clean and Rene (German manager and owner) is a great host. If you want to have dinner you should tell Rene in advance, he cooks very well.

Just the spot is already amazing! If you're looking for a getaway/hideaway place, this is the spot! When you think about paradise, you are thinking about this place. The hotel is wlaking distances to Ensenada Beach or Punta Rucia town, small town where you can take the boat to Cayo Arena.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a small, ecologically oriented hotel and the North coast of the Dominican Republic, far away from mass tourism.

Not only beach lovers, divers or divers and snorkelers will find perfect conditions! Here you can just let your mind wander and relax with a good meal and a nice drink and simply watch the sunset and the stars! Our large and bright rooms with sea view have two beds and a bathroom. 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

“All rooms are nice, but opt for second floor room if available. The hammocks and views are lovely. (Views are almost the same on the first floor. There are only 6 rooms available, so any would be fine.”
