Loro Tuerto Hotel & Cafe Review

Barahona city is fortunate to have this hotelito, which opened in 2009. The savvy Europeans and Americans who discover it are mad about the red, Havana-style café. The fascinating photographs and artifacts that line the brightly painted walls belong to the globetrotting owner, a Spaniard. After ordering from the long list of international drinks, you may become mesmerized by the Haitian lion mask, with its long mane. The menu is limited to tapas and pastas, and rooms in the two-story block are limited in size and creature comforts. They are simple, relatively new, and clean, with hand-hewn furnishings and small TVs that do get American channels. You can adjourn to the inner courtyard to take a siesta in a hammock, tune into the Wi-Fi, or just escape the street noise that invades the café. However, the sound system for the fab' international and American music is in the café, so the courtyard can be a little noisy, too.
