I just finished my trip to Santo Domingo and my stay with Orestes. I had a great time and really enjoyed my trip. I am "sure" this was mainly due to my stay with Orestes. He went out of his way to help me. Plus, his apartment complex is located in one of the best neighborhoods in the city. Not only was Orestes a great host but hopefully a new friend. I highly recommend staying with Orestes.
I never used AirBnB before, this was my first experience, I wanted to try this out staying with a host. My experience was excellent with the host, he charges $30 pickup and $30 drop off to and from Airport. He also gave me a tour of the city as well as take me grocery shopping. He is a very helpful person, very kind and understanding of my situation. There were a few blackouts in the city but it did not affect me because he is equipped with a back up generator. The place is very clean and Orestes is a great cook.
My stay over all was excellent, I would have left him tip for his amazing hospitality but I had a bad experience with his neighbour who is a taxi driver (rip me off $150USD in 3 days). Remember taxi should only cost 200-300 pesos. Its not Orestes fault, the taxi guy is a scam artist.
Anyways, the beach is 30 mins away, you can take a AC bus there easily. I would stay with Orestes again in a heart beat. You can't find better service anywhere else. Thanks Orestes for making my stay enjoyable and I highly recommend anybody and everybody to give it a try, book for a few days and see how you like it. I enjoy Santo Domingo, can't wait to return!! :)
I really liked staying with Orestes. He is a really excellent host and has helped me a lot with navigating Santo Domingo. I would definitely recommend him to anyone that wants a nice and inviting host and a nice place to stay.
Orestes is an exceptional host with a very clean apartment and good neighbors; the entire apartment is newly constructed with very clean bathrooms and bedrooms. I regret that my visit and stay was so short, however, Oreste’s apartment is my definite choice for hospitality when I return to Santo Domingo. The apartment is modern and new and Orestes provides a wonderful complementary service of tea and coffee at no additional charge. He is also a devout Christian whose kind and friendly character enriched my experience and afforded me a secure and comfortable visit. Orestes gave me a sightseeing tour of the city and was available to assist me with my interest while he was off from work. I highly commend Orestes place for anyone who desires a secure, comfortable, and affordable hospitality experience while visiting Santo Domingo. I have a new family member in Orestes whom I proudly now regard as my brother!
