The Dominican Republic is a developing country, some first world luxuries are not available or in short supply.
The country's water and electricity service shuts down sporadicly, to offer continuous service we run from a private water reserve and have an emergency generator, all waste water is handled by a natural septic system.
We do our best to keep everything running smoothly but we need your cooperation and sometimes when the sh.t hits the fan...your patience :-).
