“Amazing”
  Andrew -- Mar 08, 2011 10:43 am
If only there were a way to give more stars for Service and Value. My wife and I have traveled all over the world. We have vacationed in many places in the Carribean including Belize, Jamaica, Cancun. This was by far the most tranquil vacation we have ever taken. I have spent a lot more on a lot less!
Sarah's hospitality is unparalleled and on numerous occasions we had an entire beach all to ourselves. The only downside is there is no pool and the chalets are not on the beach, however it is a VERY short walk to get here.
The food is spectacular, Sarah is more than happy to have fresh shrimp or fish delivered to your door. Or she will arrange for a local pizza from down the street to come to you. She is the perfect hostess.
The Chalets themselves are very beautiful and secure. The gated area is very well groomed and safe for kids to roam around free.
We never had a shortage of things to do, dinner on the beach, a cliff side, or just at restaurant in town. We went snorkeling, walking to secluded beaches, even took a quad to Playa Colorado. However, if you are looking for a busy sightseeing trip, this is not for you. If you are looking to really get away from it all in a quaint little town where people will invite you out to play soccer with the locals. This is the place for you.
I HIGHLY recommend this trip for seasoned travelers, people who really need to relax, or just for some good escapism.
Recommendations:
Snorkeling
Massage on the beach (Sarah has some good contacts),
Cliffside sunset dinner your last day (breathtaking, just plan on the whole evening for it)
Visit every beach you can (Walk to the one between playita and playa colorado for true seclusion)
Relax...

the most beautiful beaches we've seen anywhere...

We just returned from spending a weekend (September 2009) at the Chalet Tropical with our 3 young boys and dog. It was perfect. We stayed in Chalet #3 which was a great size for us. Actually it could have fit a couple of more people if necessary. The nearby beaches which can be reached by walking are beautiful, uncrowded and very clean--especially if you are willing to hike a little farther. The grounds around the chalets are secure and well kept and made for some great soccer/football matches for our boys. Sarah, the owner, is amazingly helpful. She went out of her way to make our stay a pleasure. The chalet itself was comfortable, clean and charmingly unique. We definitely want to go back and will recommend it to all of our friends. We live in the DR and have been to many places around the island. The beaches near Las Galeras are the most beautiful, pristine and interesting we have seen anywhere--not just in the DR. If you prefer your vacations a bit off the beaten track and don't need a lot of touristy amenities, you will LOVE the Las Galeras area and, no matter who you are, you will love the experience at Chalet Tropical. Highly recommended!

.... better than a Hotel!

If you enjoy a certain level of comfort and independance and you don't want to stay in a hotel Chalet Tropical is the perfect place. It's the kind of location that's perfect for unwinding and relaxing.
The Beaches are fantastic some of them do take a bit of effort to reach on foot but then you get the whole place to yourself.
The chalet itself is a work of art, it's individuality increases the enjoyment of being away.
Sarah and Danillo are the perfect hosts, friendly and charming people that are genuinely lovely, they manage to look after everything for you,are full of local information but give you your privacy as well....a fine balance handled beautifully.
As the chalet is self catering we were more than happy to cook for ourselves: mostly with fish delivered by a local fisherman straight from the ocean.
The shops and restuarants of Las Galeras are an easy 5 minute stroll away. There's also transport by boat to the furthur away beaches like Playa Rincon.
If you want to stay in touch with home there is a mobile phone provided:credit can be bought in the local shops. The icing on the cake is that Sarah and Danillo have a wireless internet connection,so if you bring a laptop as we did you can send and receive emails from the chalet.
We can't think of a nicer place to relax and de stress.

Beatiful!!!
