El Marinique
Las Galeras
El Marinique is nestled on a small bluff overlooking beautiful Rincon and Las Galeras Bays in the little fishing village of Las Galeras. Just steps away from the ocean, el Marinique offers several differing accommodations set in a lush, tropical garden ablaze with color.
Accommodations include two apartments, three cottages and one large room.

With it’s oceanfront location only a half block from the center of the village, el Marinique provides you the peace and serenity that very few hotels can offer; a certain ambiance and personal attention that only a small property with a dedicated staff can achieve. This is truly Dominican hospitality at its best.
The fully furnished apartments have two stories with the ground floor having a large, covered entrance porch, a large living-dining room with a full kitchenette and a bathroom with shower and hot water. Also in the living area is a large, convertible sofa-bed that comfortably sleeps two.Windows are extra large and fully screened.
The second floor is a large, open sleeping loft with a ceiling fan and a queen-sized double bed. It opens via screened, double doors onto a private, full-width covered balcony with a panoramic view of the garden and ocean beyond.
The cottages are decorated Dominican style; simply furnished, spotlessly clean, bright and airy with lots of flow-through ventilation. Two cottages have two double beds and can accommodate up to four persons each. All windows have screens and for those rare days when we don't have a breeze, a ceiling fan provides airy comfort. Each cottage has a bathroom with hot water shower. On the front of each cottage is a small patio with several chairs; a great place to sit and enjoy the quiet hours.
The room is large with fully screened windows and an oscillating fan. Also simply furnished, it also has two double beds and a separate bathroom with shower.

One of the highlights of a stay with us is Nicole's superb cooking. Nicole's Oceanview Restaurant and Terrace Bar not only features an international cuisine with her unique twist, it also affords the caressing touch of the trade winds while you dine in the cool shade of the veranda and enjoy the best view of the bay in Las Galeras.

Nicole’s menu is highlighted by fresh seafood (caught daily) and by tender beef steaks aged to mouth-watering perfection. Her kitchen’s offerings also include roast pork, young goat and a house specialty, Shrimp Primavera on Pasta. Grilled offerings from the BBQ include lobster liberally brushed with garlic and lime butter and Capt. Andy’s finger lickin’ good chicken, ribs and steaks all smothered with Nicole’s savory Creole sauce.
Nicole is very picky about her food and serves only the best products available. Not only does she bake her own bread and pastries and blend her special vinaigrette salad dressing, but she is also noted for her homemade desserts that range from crepes to pies to specialty cakes. Top these with a dollop of rich, Dominican ice cream and you're in culinary heaven!
