It's been a great trip! The students will be posting individual summary blogs in the next few days (no free Internet at the hotel).

Thanks for following our journey...it has truly been transformational!

The Chicken Shack

... which was supposed to be done by 6:00 pm Tuesday. When he arrived, it wasn't ready yet. The woman at the laundry told him it would be done in 20 minutes. At that, the moto driver rolls his eyes and tells Mike it will be hours yet. He says he will pick it up. At that, Mike gives him the laundry ticket, the payment for the laundry and something extra. Laundry was delivered to the hotel later ...

Letting go

... sharing are not
something they seem to grasp. Even with the older kids, it was difficult to
pass out markers or scissors for a table. Everyone wanted their own and even if
they were not using a marker, they would hold it in their hands, unwilling to
let someone else use it. My first thought was that I could not imagine a world
where you have to hold so tight to that which you feel is yours, because it
might be taken away. But then I realized, I can ...

22/3 We checked out of the marina, and navy and sailed the 16 miles down to Luperon bay, entering between the reefs and anchoring in 5m of water in a massive mangrove lined bay, we were soon approached by the local boat boys Pabo’s Yacht services and they offered us fuel and saw our dinghy was in a sorry state, in the evening we dinghied all around the bay looking for a bar and dinghy dock but couldn’t find ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hacienda Garden Resort Puerto Plata

    No Hacienda at the Hacienda Club

    from

    The Hacienda Garden Club was a major disappointment. Why? Read on:

    Gareden club, we call it the flea pit

    from

    We have just returned from the Hacienda resort and if you are reading this and have booked the garden club please take note. Call your agent and change to the tropical do it now or your Holiday could be ruined as well.

    Please don't go there!

    from

    Well, the whole place stinks. Dirty and uncomfortable bed (hard as a rock). In the middle of our first night it started to rain in. No electricity for 24 hours, no water, no telephone. Bugs everywhere. Bitemarks all over the body. There was not sunchairs for everyone. The buffet stunk. No variation what so ever. Birds flying all over the place making their business all over the food. After 4 days one of us got so sick (diarrhorea and nausea) that medical treatment was nessessary for more than a week including I.V treatment etc. The guys in the yellow t-shirts followed us all day long harassing us and many many other couples at the resort. WARNING. Don'?t go with them, they are only offering lousy timeshares. All over ignorant staff, shouting and screaming day and night. If you want a peaceful vacation go somewhere else.

    Nice and friendly hotel

    from

    I just came back from Puerto Plata (Hancienda Garden) and want to give my opinion as well. I've read all critics before going and was very scarry of what to find....which is good because I have been nothing but surprised and pleased.

    So Bad I Wanna Cry!!!!

    from

    This hotel was the worst that we've ever been to. The beach was dirty, and the ocean water was polluted since the sewage systems dumped everything in the beach water. When you walk by the beach, you can smell the digusting sewage. The beach was full of locals. Also, dogs roamed the beach and "did their business" in the sand! Most people swam in the pool. However, the pool was covered in bird droppings.The room that we stayed in, C14, was dark and dingy. The ceiling was leaking, but they could not move us since they were apparently sold out.

    Not the Ritz but good value

    from

    This place was not bad at all. This was our first time to the Carribian and we were impressed. The staff were very good and worked hard to please you. The rooms are not the 4 star but the resort is only a 2 star so don't expect more that what you pay for. Rooms were more than adiquate for sleeping. The grounds were very well kept as was the pool.

    Give this place a try!

    from

    We went to the Hacienda Garden Club on the 25th of December and came home on the 1st of January. It was a good trip. The atmosphere was great, the people who work at this resort are very friendly and hard working. There was a fantastic New Years show and fireworks, definately recommend going away for the Christmas/New Years holidays.The rooms were very unique. Yes, there was the occasional insect however this is expected when you are in this type of "cottage" like room. If you are use to seeing the occasional bug in your house, you can handle this place. It's really not a big deal. And, there were no bugs in the bed.... perhaps the others who were complaining about bugs didn't rinse off after being at the beach. There are sand flees at the beach but if you rinse off it's not a problem. The room was cleaned everyday with clean towels and sheets. When you stay at this hotel you have access to the facilities at the Hacienda Tropical so it was nice to have the variety. The drinks were plentiful and potent. It was fun! The food was okay, some meals were better than others but really there was a lot of other positives. While we were there it seemed that they are trying to upgrade and radisson or marriot is putting more money into the hotel complex. The bus ride to the resort took about 30-45 mins from the air port. This bus ride gives you a good idea of life for the citizens of the Domincan. I would recomend this resort, however it's not for everyone. It's not a 4-5 star resort but it's what you make of it.

    Dump

    from

    the hacienda is to say the least the worst place i've been in my life.There were bed bugs, dirty rooms the food was terrible and alot of people got very sick , so people spent time in the hospital on iv drip from the bacteria .We left there to the hotel only to have our suitcases robbed of valubles after checking them in. to say the least the place was a dump.

    Good place to visit

    from

    I had a wonderful time. The food was only slightly above average( all buffet style), but the staff and service were excellent. I will definately be returning soon. When you arrive, say hello to Minelys for me.....she's the best.

    Loved Hacienda Garden

    from

    From February 21 to Feb 28/03 my husband and I vacationed here, and it was wonderful. Rooms were very neat and clean, although had a visitor , a huge HUGE spider, lol, but we put him outside, food was always good, excellent selection, staff very friendly, always involving us in activities if we wanted, and always ready with a smile. Guests were very friendly, since a smaller resort always chatted with everyone, and people would always ask, how was dinner, your night, etc, had a wonderful time, would love to return soon with daughter.
