Well, really NOT the best airbnb i have done. The main problem is the location, because it s just on a big avenue with a lot of trafic and noise. For a foreigner like me it was a bad surprise. Otherwise, it s a little bit difficult to enjoy the view because of the curtains that you can t fully open (contrary to the pictures). The nearest supermarket is at 15 minutes walking distance, better to take a taxi or your own car. When you leave, you have to pay for the cleaning or do it yourself. (but with what ?) It was not noticed on airbnb. Positive notes : the apartement was clean, the furniture and equipment was good, the bed confortable, the person who received me was friendly and the persons working there were super friendly and feel you as a secure place, you have a good choice of restaurants near the place.

Hi Julien; Thank you for staying with us. We are please to let our future guest know that we offer several apartments. If you are sensitive to noise please let us know in advance and we will recommend one of the units that has electric shutters which isolate the noise. Had you slide the the curtains it would have opened up. At no point was it ever mentioned that you needed to pay for cleaning. We do however have housekeepers on site which usually charge about 11 dollars to reclean your unit.
Very nice view of ocean, as many other negative reviews here, i disagree, lourdes place was all great, from start to end of my stay, communication was always easy, and i will return to one of lourdes apartments in marbella, yes its a very busy street. Lots of noise but noise is part of traveling. Adventure no sleep the view of the ocean was great, yes there is prostitution across the st. But... they are harmless and i actually had a blast conversating thru the windrow with them very interesting. Also there are always police men there watching i never felt unsafe. It was all A+
It is a good spot in a pretty run down city - Considering the surrounding property offerings this was definitely adequate, door people were friendly and helpful. Angie ( cleaning lady ) was very cordial and kind. parking was convenient, plentiful and gated. Honestly, if I were to ever return to Sto. Domingo ( I would not ) I would consider staying at Lourdes ' places. Just be aware that after dark there are many working girls milling around in the front of the building and their subsequent clientele...and their drunken tirades, does not allow the feeling of safety for single women (of certain class) travelers, unless your in the market for such. The traffic noise is unbearable at times so bring a white noise machine to get some restful sleep. The view was unmatched until you find out that the water is inaccessible and even if it was it is exceedingly filthy and unfit for bathing as the city waste runs directly into it, which is sad. Be aware of the city urchins that charge excessive fees that seem fair but upon further comparison are 4x what they actually are for the natives. Good luck if you find yourself in the MaleconSD.
Beware! Really disappointed and unsatisfied. When I got there, the room was nothing like the one shown on pictures. It was messy, dirty, and the air conditioner does not even work(mind you it is really hot here). The host could not switch me to a different room where there's actual air conditioner and only got a technician to come three days after I moved in. Don't even think about opening the window because of this places location, with all that noise outside there's no way you could sleep with the window open. I had a horrible experience.
