This former palace of the governor of the city, comrade of Columbus, dates to 1502. The three lavish original homes, connected by a string of patios with ancient colonnades, were converted into a five-star hotel. Featuring walls of stone, weathered by the centuries, and replete with secret corridors and carved woodwork, this is where the legacy of a prestigious past coexists with vintage curtains and the delicate whispers of fountains. The 101 rooms and suites, which offer views of the river or lush gardens, are decorated with elegant modernity and refinement. Always lively, La Residence, the hotel's restaurant, celebrates French cuisine and Creole flavours. Share a moment of conviviality at Cibao Bar, renowned for the cosy atmosphere of a snooker club and an exceptional menu of vintage rums. The presence of an authentic tabaquero is much appreciated for his expert advice, for novices as well as aficionados of Dominican cigars.
