The Bannister Hotel is an amazing place. Every time I come to the Dominican Republic, I choose this amazing and beautiful hotel. Not only is it a fantastic place, but they also have the most accommodating staff with amazing and personable personalities. I wish I could remember all the lovely people's names but to names that stand out are Elena and Alexandro. It is very rare to find people like these two. Not only were they extremely nice and helpful, but they also recommended different sites to make my stay even nicer. The Bannister Hotel is the first hotel that made my stay outside my own city feel like home.
