Fodor's Review

Remi Catinot is the exuberant owner and keeper of his classy "castle"—dual, concrete two-story buildings set around a decadent, Romanesque pool that offer simple, unadorned rooms about a block from the beach. This is a good home base from which to explore Las Galeras. Try for a second-floor room with a terrace. An inexpensive Continental breakfast is available. The family-style dinners, especially the lobster, may be the best meal you will have in Las Galeras. This Frenchman can qualify as a chef. Nonguests can sometimes book. Try. The new TV bar with international drinks is just another reason why guests comment so favorably.
