    Default News about Hotel Pinar Dorado

    Hotel Pinar Dorado has been a staple of the local hospitality industry for many years, but fell on hard times and was sold to a local university who made it even worse.

    It is in sorry physical condition even by Dominican standards, had abysmal customer service and food & beverage, and was badly managed to boot. The parking lot alone looks like a bombed-out battlefield.

    We just learned the Abreau family, owners of several prominent local businesses including Hotel Gran Jimenoa and Supermercado Jarabacoa has bought Hotel Pinar Dorado.

    This is excellent news! This hotel has a huge upside, but needs a lot of love...and deep pockets.

    The plan is to close the hotel in December for a full remodeling. No doubt it'll take six months to put a remodel plan together. An Abreau family member is an architect/engineer, and based on the majic he sprinkled on the Gran Jimenoa, I look forward to the revival of Hotel Pinar Dorado.

    That is indeed good news. That hotel started falling apart about five years ago. I don't get to Jarabacoa often but always preferred it over Gran Jimenoa.
