Chalet Tropical is a beautiful place to stay in the Dominican Republic. We stayed half a week in Casa Taina and a week in one of the chalets. Both were great experiences. The chalet might be more romantic, but Casa Taina is more spacious (and has a better kitchen). For our family this house was great. The WIFI is a bit weak inside the house but if you need to get online you can just step out and sit on the terrace or in the garden.
More importantly, Casa Taina is situated in Sarah's Chalet Tropical Village which is a 5min pleasant walk from Las Galeras and 7-8 min pleasant walk to the wonderful beach Playita. Sarah is the perfect host - genuinely wanting you to have your perfect vacation. She is always helpful and generous and perfectlybalancing this with letting you have your privacy and peace&quiet. Both the gardener/guard and housekeepers that came and cleaned three times a week, were also very pleasant and nice to us, making us feel at home. The place is well kept... Plus
