Arriving at Hostal Nicolas de Ovando, your thoughts drift toward an old saying: “one must give credit where credit is due,” and therefore, one must credit the colonial period with impeccable style. The hotel’s 104 traditional or contemporary rooms and suites offer views of the river, one of four patios, the gardens, or “Las Damas,” a famous cobbled street.
Hostal Nicolas de Ovando is famed for its gorgeous gastronomy, so take advantage of the chance to savor French cooking with a Creole twist. Tucked away in the Spanish patio and tropical garden lies the perfect spot in which to sample some of the very best Dominican cigars. For those guests who are new to the cigar experience in particular, the presence of the hotel’s "tabaquero" will be very much appreciated.
As tempting as it may be to never leave the Hostal Nicolas de Ovando once one’s bags are unpacked, keep in mind the historic location in which it is set. And on that note… get out and explore!
