Fodor's Expert Review Chalet Tropical

Calle Chalet Tropical, 32000, Dominican Republic

This family-owned eco-aparthotel offers fully equipped bungalows made of stone and wood and decorated in colors that evoke tropical fruits, flowers, and the sun without being overwhelming. All options include Jacuzzi-style pools with mini waterfalls, but the villas have pools that are more private (since they're not as close together as the ones in the bungalows). Breakfast can be included for a fee, but other amenities like Wi-Fi are free. Owner-manager Sarah and her husband can help organize activities and provide restaurant recommendations. Though this property is within walking distance to La Playita and Las Galeras, guests will feel like they're tucked away in the middle of a small jungle. From here you can walk to the center to find small supermarkets, pharmacies, and restaurants offering everything from traditional food to pizza.

PROS

  • private pools are refreshing
  • great for longer stays
  • close to the action but feels away from it all

CONS

  • no on-site food options, but there are plenty of options nearby
  • hot water sometimes runs out
  • nature sometimes finds its way into rooms, to be expected during rainy season
