Frequently Asked Questions and Answers.

About The Girls

Q. What are the girls like? Are they all as good looking as the photos on the website?

A. Yes, they are all good looking, although they are chosen also for their personality and suitability. We try and keep the web site updated with pictures of the current girls.  However girls come and go and only the successful ones stay around.  In my view girls that are available are better than the photo lead you to believe.  Actually the general comment is that the girls are better looking in person.

Q. How do I choose a girl?

A. When you arrive at the resort you will be met by the staff and invited to relax with a beer or soft drink. You will then be taken to your room to freshen up and unpack. Come back to the bar area the staff will have got all the available girls ready for you to choose from. You will be given another beer (or two), with the girls sitting in front of you. You will be introduced to the girls, and then each of the girls will come up to introduce herself to you.

If you have any questions you want to ask, either in general or about a particular girl, you may either ask them directly or get the staff to ask for you.  If your Spanish is not particularly good we suggest that you allow us to do any translation in order to prevent misunderstandings.  Remember that the Spanish spoken in is not the same as that spoken in Spain.  ¿Cuáñ es tu nombre?  What is your name?

Once you have made your choice you and your chosen girl can then get better acquainted.

Q. What if I want to change the girl I am with?

A. If you want to change the girl you are with, for whatever reason, simply let us know.  If you remember the name of the girl you want, we will get her for you.  If you want another full line-up this can be arranged, or if you have already seen the girl you want next just let us know and we will arrange it.
You do not have to stay with the same girl for your entire stay; you may change as often as you want. Some guests do stay with the same girl, others change after two or three days, others change every day. Remember that it is YOUR vacation, so do whatever you want.

Q. What happens if my girl is doing something which annoys me?

A. If it is something minor, tell her yourself if you wish, or ask one of us to speak to her. If you believe the problem is more serious, then please tell us and we will speak to her and, if you wish, replace her immediately. Although we try to ensure that you have no problems, the girls are human and we cannot monitor them 24 hours a day.  Girls who smoke will usually not smoke if that is what you want.  Also the girls do not mind if you smoke even if they do not smoke

Q. Do they really provide a 24 hour service?

A. Yes, they are with you 24 hours a day. However, it is not unreasonable for them to want some private time, to freshen up and attend to their personal needs. This will usually be in the morning, after you have got up. If you feel that they are away from you for too long, talk to the girl and explain that you want to see more of her; if the situation persists then talk to us and we will talk to the girl.

Q. Do I need to give the girls a tip?

A. No, tipping is not necessary and we actively discourage it. However, you may want to show your appreciation to the girl by giving her a small gift, taking her shopping or in some other way. This is entirely discretionary. Do NOT feel obliged to tip the girls.

Q. Do the girls speak English?

A. All of the girls understand some English and can speak it a little; some of them have very good English. If you speak slowly to the girls you should not encounter any problems. If you have any problems in being understood, please ask one of the management team to translate rather than risk a potentially unfortunate misunderstanding.

Q. How long are the girls with you? If I see a girl on the website that I like will she be there when I take my vacation?

A. Most of our girls stay with us for one to two months, the average is six weeks. After that they return home. Some of the girls do come back, but we try and make them take a break of several months between visits in order to keep up their normal life. Depending on the interval between when the photos on the website were taken and when you visit, most girls should still be with us, but we do not guarantee this.

Sexual Matters

Q. Will the girls really do anything I want in terms of sex?

A. If you expect a non-stop orgy with sex-crazed nymphomaniac porn stars then please go elsewhere.

The girls will provide a full girl-friend experience, but there are limits to what they will do. These are NOT prostitutes, but ordinary girls who need to make some extra money. Some girls may be willing to go that bit further than others; this is something you need to inquire about discreetly and politely when choosing a girl.

Q. What happens if the girl doesn't want to do something?

A. Each girl has her own limits and these must be respected. Some girls will provide these services, some won't. If you are unhappy with the service the girl gives, please talk with the management.

If we feel that your request is reasonable then we will consider replacing the girl.
If, on the other hand, what you want is totally unreasonable then you will be told so.  Please remember that oral sex without a condom is almost as risky as unprotected vaginal sex.

Q. Are the girls medically checked to ensure they don't have any sexually transmitted diseases?

A. Yes, all the girls have a medical check-up before they start to work for us. Medical certificates are available.

Q. If I have two girls, will they put on a lesbian show for me?

A. As noted above, these girls are not prostitutes or porn stars. Each of them has their own limits and preferences. If you choose to have two girls and want this then we advise you talk it with me.

Q. What if a girl asks me for money directly for providing "extra" sexual services?

A. If a girl asks you directly for money, especially if it is for providing certain sexual services, please tell the management at once. The girls are not allowed to do this and it will result in them being dismissed.

Q. What about condoms and sex toys for the girls?

A. Bring as many condoms as you think you will need, and then double the quantity. It is far better to have some left over than to find yourself without at a crucial moment in the middle of the night. Many of our girls are happy, indeed eager, to play with sex toys. Just make sure that they are clean and sterile and that you bring plenty of water-based lubricants.

Q. What about Viagra or Cialis? Can I get them?

A. You can get both Viagra and Cialis at most pharmacies; cost is about US$5 per pill. Ask the management team to recommend a pharmacy. La Pela a generic version of Cialis costs $50RD or about a $1.39US

Q. In my past experiences, a guest taking pictures of ourselves (no not other guests!) and the ladies was perfectly acceptable.

A. Pictures are acceptable as long as all parties are agreeable, that means other guests and the girls. I would suggest that taking pics with girls is fine as long as they are for personal referral and not to plaster all over the internet. If other guests are in the frame you will need their permission.

Q.I have once brought a movie camera for some personal documentaries in my room. That was more up in the air and ok with some girls, but not others.

A. You won't have problems with most girls. The only reason other girls may have a problem is because we have had guests here who take videos and put then on Facebook and Youtube and other public sites.

This is not acceptable and guest who publish videos and photos on public sites are not allowed back on the resort.

About the Resort

Q. What are the prices of excursions in the DR?

A. Taxis are not as cheap as in other parts of South America, but affordable. Most excursions and facilities are within the area that we are situated so that this will not influence the prices too much.

Q. What currency is used by the locals? Will the resort staff do the currency exchanges for me from my US Dollars or Euros? If so, to what currency?

A. Local currency is the peso, there are lots of banks and OFFICIAL currency exchanges, and it is much easier for guests to change their own currency here. Please note that you will have a problem here trying to change Travelers Checks.  Only you can cash your traveler’s checks with a passport as ID.  The exchange rate for $US and Euros at a Cambio is much higher than for Travelers checks at any bank.

Q.I was told in other South American countries never to carry my original passport, only a copy so I wouldn't appear to be a regular tourist, but a regular tourist wouldn't get asked to pay extra 'fines' by some of the local authorities. Is that the same in the DR?

A. Any ID is accepted on DR, there is no corruption directed toward tourists for not carrying a passport, as far as we are aware. We advise guests to leave all identification in the room lock box and only carry a few hundred dollars cash.  The police here are our friends and their job is to ensure the safety of tourists.
I suggest that you get a photocopy or two of the identification page of your passport and carry it with you.

Q. What about nightlife?

A. There are numerous restaurants if you want to take your girl for a romantic meal. If you are feeling lucky there is the Casino. There are also numerous nightclubs, with dancing and cabaret. Ask the staff for advice on where to go.

Caribbean General Questions

Q. What is the weather like?

A. The weather is good all year round. Temperature is between 82 and 91 degrees Fahrenheit (28 to 33 Celsius). Rainfall is usually restricted to occasional showers, there are on average 320 dry days each year, only 45 days when it rains.

Q. What about insects? Do I need Malaria precautions?

A. There are mosquitoes and other biting insects on the islands, as you would expect. However, the mosquitoes are not the malaria carrying variety so anti-malaria precautions are not needed. You might want to bring some insect repellent for your wrists, neck and ankles after dark to avoid getting bitten.

Q. What clothes should I bring with me?

A. The following packing list has been suggested by some of our repeat visitors.

  • 3 or 4 T-shirts (for the beach)
  • 2 or 3 Polo shirts (for evenings)
  • 1 maybe 2 semi-formal shirts for nights out.
  • 2 pairs shorts
  • 1 pair decent long pants
  • 1 pair very casual slacks
  • 5 or 6 pants (underwear)
  • 3 or 4 pairs of socks
  • 2 Swimming trunks
  • 1 pair sandals / flip-flops
  • 1 pair shoes

Q. What else do I need?

A. Again, this list has been provided by some of our guests.

  • Personal toiletries (shower gel rather than soap, it makes sharing a shower with your girl so much fun)
  • Any medications you need
  • Condoms (lots)
  • Lubricant (water-based not oil-based)
  • Sun tan protection, at least SPF 30
  • After sun lotion
  • Insect repellent
  • Camera (and film if you're not using digital)

Q. How much money should I bring and in what form?

A. This depends very much on whether you are content to stay at the Resort or want to go out every day, eat out every night, go on excursions, sample the nightlife. At a bare minimum you can get away with almost nothing, providing you just stay at the Resort all day and every day. More typically, budget between US$100 and US$200 a day over the length of your stay. This will allow you enough to visit the beaches, go on a few outings and have some spending money for other things. Bring US Dollars or Euros in either cash or Travelers' Cheques. You can change these at a cambio or nearby bank.

Q. I am on prescription medication. Will there be any problem with Customs?

A. No, prescription medication and over the counter medications are OK. It is advisable to have a copy of the prescription with you in case you get stopped by Customs or if you run out while you are here.  Customs expects tourists to indicate “Nothing to Declare”

Q.  If need medication can I obtain it from a Pharmacy?  Without a Prescription?

A.  Medication is moderately expensive here.  Most non narcotic medications are available over the counter.  If you need a narcotic medicine we have a fully qualified physician on call to the hotel.  He will assess your condition and take appropriate action.  In fact he may actually source the medication for you and just charge you for it.  His fee is very reasonable.

Making a Booking

Q. OK, so I've read up on everything, how do I make my booking?

A. Once you have decided on the dates you want, Contact us! We will reply as soon as possible to let you know if the dates are available, and let you know how much the stay will cost.

Once you have tentative dates, you then need to make your own travel arrangements. When you have flights send them to us.  We will validate the flights and update the travel folio.  For new guests a deposit is required.

Q. How can I pay?

A. We prefer payment by cash when you arrive.  For the deposit US resident guests, we accept a cash deposit into an account domiciled in a large US Bank.  Canadians may make limited payment using e-Interac money transfer.  Europeans are very familiar with the bank to bank Wire transfer system.

Q. Do you accept Credit Cards or Traveler Cheques?

A. No, we can't accept Credit Cards nor Traveler Cheques at this time. There are banks just around the corner though.  A guest may cash his travelers cheques or obtain a cash advance from a Debit or Credit Card.
