    Default Hotel for a night

    Hi North Coasters

    I am flying into POP on 13th october with my elderly parents en route to Santo Domingo. The reason we are coming into POP is purely due to flight prices, its a lot cheaper than to Santo Domingo.

    What I need to know is, because my mum and dad are elderly, I think rather than jump straight on a metro or caribe tours bus for the capital, it may be an idea to stay a night in a hotel to give my parents a chance to rest a little.

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to non-expensive but clean hotels with AC where we could stop for a night. And what are the prices for the night. I suppose in Puerto Plata or somewhere between there and the airport.

    Oh yes, and also it wouldn't be a definate stop-over so would the hotel accept people just turning up at the desk without reservation?

    Many thanks
    Paul

    Freemo, if you don't mind my asking, why are you going to POP in the first place? Why not take a flight right into SDQ. It would save you a lot of time and trouble.

    If you can't for some reason, Sosua is closer to POP than Puerta Plata is, and there are several nice hotels there. Do a search of the hotels in Sosua and ask one of your choosing if you can check-in last minute. It shouldn't be too busy that time of year.

    Default Big price difference

    Hi Catcher

    There was big difference between flying into POP and SDQ - it was several hundred pounds cheaper. Also my mum didnt want to change in Madrid as that was another comparable option to SDQ price-wise.

    I have stopped over in Puerto Plata in the past but that was with my Dominican wife and she took care of finding us a place to stay. It was abit basic to be honest and my mum and dad would probably need a little more comfort.

    I didn't realize there was that much difference. It is a lot.

    Anyway, your best bet to probably to do a search of hotels, since you will know what you're looking for, narrow it down to two or three choices, then ask about your specific choices.

    Default Hotel Victoriano looks like a possible

    After some searching the Hotel Victoriano looks like a possible. As long as its clean and comfortable with AC it should be fine.

    Anyone know what the current rates are?

    The 700 peso rate equates to about $21US according to that link?

    Or is that out of date, 21 dollars for a room does sound a bit cheap

    Yes, it does seem rather inexpensive, and I really don't know if it out of date or not.

    Looking back, I can't find where I saw the @$60 rate either. Maybe I was looking at a different hotel when I saw that??? Who knows.

    Anyway, it seems it would be prudent just to give them a call.

    If you need a room and a pickup at the airport, I can get you all inclusive for 45 dollars US each at Club on The Green in Playa Dorada. Let me know
