Old Reviews - Todo Blanco
My sister and I stayed at Todo Blanco in Las Galeras in March of 2005.
We liked the fact that it was not an All-Inclusive, and we were prepared to sacrifice some creature comforts for the charm of a smaller more authentic place to stay.
I can compare it to two other small and close-by hotels Tropical Lodge in Samana (an hour or so by gua-gua) as well as Playa Bonita in Las Galeras (a 1 minute walk/next door).
Breakfast was better than at Tropical Lodge Staff was friendliest at Todo Blanco.
We had a lovely 2nd floor room with a balcony overlooking the green yard, with white cotton curtains that billowed out the window.
Tropical Lodge is the quietest place in Samana - no small feat. But their decorations are nill, depressing rooms.
Todo Blanco took the cake for class and nice decor - this is the place to send a fashion buyer who drinks cosmos and wears all black, WHEN she wants to try "roughin' it."
We did have rather salty showers - very salty - that was the one draw-back. My eyes burned sometimes from it. But hey!
Todo Blanco does not have a pool - but if you buy a drink you can swim next door at Playa Bonita!!
The salty showers were our only complaint, and in the D.R. that is a small price to pay.
We will only return to TODO BLANCO, no more Tropical Lodge and no more Playa Bonita.
