Fel på karta - ligger lååååångt utanför stan!Posted May 11, 2015 on Hotels
Vi bokade detta hotell för att det låg i stan. Nära restauranger och aktivitetsutbud. Vi åkte buss dit och valde att gå de sista hundra metrarna med ryggsäckarna. Vi gick och gick, frågade oss fram. Efter 2km promenad i fel riktning fick vi veta att hotellet låg 12 km utanför stan, i en helt annan riktning. Hade vi vetat att hotellet låg så långt bort från ALLT hade vi aldrig bokat det. Nu förlorade vi våra pengar för att de inte hade korrekt kartinformation på google eller hotels.com heller för den delen. Det var mörkt överallt när vi kom dit. Vi frågade om vi kunde få något att äta. Killen som jobbade visste inte vad Restaurant vad - vi försökte visa med teckenspråk att vi ville äta och var hungriga, men han skakade på huvudet. Trots att hotellet skriver på hotels.com att de har mycket mat att välja på fanns det inget för oss när vi kom dit vid 20-tiden på kvällen. Vi tackade för oss, och betalade den dyra taxin för en returresa tillbaka till stan igen där vi istället tog in på Hotel California med promenadavstånd in till stan. Trivdes jättebra DÄR. Nackdelen är att vi åker på att betala inte bara taxin, utan även boendet eftersom att vi inte avbokade 1 dygn innan - vilket är surt, med tanke på att hotellet inte i närheten levde upp den till den info de förmedlat, och aldrig skulle bokats av oss i första läget om vi känt till detta.

Its 15 km out of the cityPosted Apr 7, 2015 on Hotels
This hotel is 15 km out of Jarabacoa city! the address is shown in the city, but it's not! no one could explain for us by phone how to get there..and when we finally found that place (thanks for the local guy), manager was totally drunk... despite of that bungalow was clean, surrounding was nice and breakfast was tasty. but we were too disappointed to enjoy.i do not recommend this place if you need a hotel in the city.

Unpleasant surprise!Posted Feb 16, 2015
Upon arrival we found out that our rooms were given to someone else. We were force to accept an upgrade at a higher price. The new place they gave us wasn't so bad, but we could not fit properly, an one of the kids didn't slept comfortable. We could not leave, because all other places were full due to carnaval and other events in the area. So we were trap. We had no choice. Also they have a woodpeckers problem. One of this lovely birds decided to work all night at our cabin (maybe the bird could not sleep), so everyone had to wake up each time the bird decided to start banging. We are not picky at all, but never been so dissapointed.

Rancho Olivier, Jarabacoa, Dominican RepublicPosted Jan 8, 2015
Pros: Best thing about this place was the beautiful property surrounding the buildings. The breakfasts were really good, too.
Cons: Better communication & clearer expectations between owner, manager, and customer.
Location: Close to Jarabacoa, a beautiful part of the country with mountains and waterfalls, etc.
It wasn't listed as a "Bed & Breakfast" but that is very much what it was. We were looking for a nice hotel with updated amenities, etc., which was how it was advertised, so we were disappointed. The water went out on us mid shower (literally) the first morning and no compensation was offered. We didn't want to make waves so we just ignored it. First thing we saw when we walked in was a HUGE spider on the wall. (We took a different room, which also cost us more money.) Finally, although the people were nice, I felt like we were being nickled & dimed like crazy and the communication was not clear, even though we speak Spanish well.

Peace and Quiet. Highly recommended.Posted Dec 27, 2014 on Hotels
An idyllic oasis. Peaceful. Ideal for those traveling by car- Rancho Olivier is not in Jarabacoa- it's between Jarabacoa and La Vega, so about a 10 minute drive from either city. The drive is worthwhile because it gets you out of the noise of the city. Mauritza and crew are very attentive. Breakfast is excellent and plentiful. We would definitely stay there again.

Run, but run away from it!Posted Dec 22, 2014 on Hotels
Breakfast was nice. Prepared on site., Owners are friendly. Now the negatives, they say they have a bar, they do have plenty of liquor but no ice, nothing cold, not even a beer. The room I was in was a 3 bedroom cottage. But no privacy, you could see into the room from the reception desk which shares a wall made from lattice.They were playing pool right when it was time for us to go to sleep. There are a lot of antiques but it is very dusty and there were mice in the room. Do yourself a favor and stay someplace else.
