Is it even worth it to start a thread on FOD? I posted some fair criticisms about this place regarding my last trip a few weeks ago on another forum. On the other hand, I've had some decent experiences on previous trips. YMMV. Here's a few pics to get it going. Everybody needs a hobby. Some guys collect stamps and coins, some golf, some hunt and fish. Me: I pound out chicas overseas and take pics of their recently blown out boxes. It's what I do man.

You seem to have already done so?

Anyway, I think it is a good idea. Any newbie looking to find info on Field of Dreams would have a hard time locating it buried in the Puerto Plata thread and (more illogically) the Sosua thread.

We have a thread on La Romana with only 110 posts in 12 years. I guess we will surpass that total here within a year easily.

We mere visitors appreciate your boots on the ground, "ground truth" as my past life "community" refers to it. I understand you favor the dark meat. Here's some pink on black, a little gift if you will, for your data rich posts. Keep them coming. Geo.

On the last visit, the only guest was very dissatisfied with the place. Losing Nico hurt the establishment greatly...IMHO.

In all fairness they did have some really attractive Chica's on this last visit, but they wanted $40 for a room for 2 hours, when they only charge $45 for the same room overnight. It use to be $20 for 2 hours, which was fair, now I just can't see paying 1700 (ish) DOP for the room and another 1600 (ish) DOP for the chica. I can't imagine staying there either, food is not good (at best), and there is nowhere to go within walking distance. They really need to improve the restaraunt & customer service if they want to increase their business. Blackbeards is successful because they value repeat customers, and will bend over backwards to accommodate a good customer. You (I) don't get the same feeling a FOD, it's more like try to get all they can from you now, and who really cares if you come back.

I hope they are able improve the business because I like the place, and a trip over there can always be a fun excursion, but with no real prospect of getting laid (without basically throwing money away), I am not sure there is any point to visiting. I hope they bring back $20ST rooms!

I would like to get any information about FOD from anyone who has stayed there lately. I have been there once for about 20 minutes or so. It was when a other site had a party there and it seem really good this was about 2 years ago. I was staying at Black Beards and did not care for BB's. They canceled all there actives during the day and just sit around waiting for someone to pick them. Plus the manger Tim was rude and a smart ass to everyone I seen him talk to. The last straw was when they canceled Mardi Gras (sp) and when I asked why they said that Halloween was next week. That was the last straw I did not spend another dime there. I have seen a lot of bad reviews about st and costing $80 when it should be $60. I read on another site where Jeffery said the taxi mafia was charging him $20 dollars for the people they brought and if people would tell them when they got there that they had asked to be brought there he could tell the taxi no money. I know that a lot of people did not like that but I can understand why he would do it. Anyway thanks for the info.

Girls at FOD are more GFE than BB and it's more a party atmosphere. The resort does not have as many rules as BB and is more unstructured. They have a bikini contest on Wed. Afternoons and some girls will go full nude. If you have any problems during your stay, see Pedro, as he is in charge. I've only heard of people getting uncharged on short term visits there. If you stay there, no problem. I always use FOD's driver Carlos. POP-FOD, FOD-BB, FOD-Sosua all $20 each way. The only disadvantage of FOD is, it is isolated. Oh, the AC, hot water, and water pressure are much better than BB, the main reason I've gone to FOD lately, besides Tim being a A-hole.

If you use him at night he will be drunk on his ass, I had him take me to a restaurant one night and it wasn't pretty. Also, don't use him for anything else other than a taxi ride, he knows everybody in Puerto Plata and you will be gringo taxed. PM me if you want more detail. And yup, Tim is a total a-hole.

Thanks for the info Husker Dude and Manizales911 Like I said it was off the hook the short time I was there. They talk about padding your bill I know for a fact that they do that at Black Beards I got a 2425 paso bill for my dinner I had a roast beef sandwich fries and a water. Which should have been like 500 pasos. I asked the watres why and she said you shered with 2 chicas. I said there was noone else here with me. She said that's what she was told. I went to talk to Tim and told him about it and he smarts off "What you can't buy a couple of poor girls something to eat" I figured what the hell if a chica had asked me to get her something cause she was hungery I would have I would never turn down anyone hungery. So fuck it and payed. Then when beer was not put in my ice box for 2 days I paid for that also. The maid said she put it there and he is yelling at her saying he going to fire her. Fuck it omce again I'll pay for it. Then told them to take everything out of the fridge I don't need there stuff. I go to these places for fun rest and fuck. I don't need to go through little games like this. The maid at BB came up to me and had some money that she had got for tips and said she was sorry and wanted me to take the money. I could not do that she had just forgot to put them in the fridge and Tim was going to make someone pay. I think can I aford it better then her. Yeah I don't care for BB. And I don't want to go to some place like Sousa I know hundereds of chicas begging you to take them for next to nothing but too many dammed game. After playing these stupid games for 23 years I am tired of them. About Carlos I got him picking me up. He is the one I used last time he is a great guy. He was sitting in the car lieing with me to my wife about how the last time he got me I was with a group of gambling buddys He put some shit out there about how trusty worthy to my wife helped me out a lot. If you get any more info on FOD or there chicas would love to hear it. Or anyone going to be there on thoese dates.

I liked it more than BB but I still like BB. The layout (flat) resort was more to my liking...it didn't have that BB apartment complex feel. The girls were FAR more fun and friendly and less clinical in their approaches than at BB. The food was good IMHO. The sessions were far more GFE than at BB. BB has the beach nearby so it wins in that department. My next resort trip will be FOD this summer and BB in the fall. Hope this helps a little.

I too, have had many many good times at FOD over the course of numerous visits. However, recently, several issues have arisen which have caused me to consider other options. I will return in the future, but variety is nice too.

Thank you Lou32 for the info and thank you Geolopes for starting this thread. It does make it a lot easer to find out info here I think everybody is going to have a fav or one they have had problems with. I also feel that having two that are close are great to give you a choice. I don't care for BB but I would hate to see it go away. I think there is more then enough room for both. I will be there Tue and I will give my report on here then. I don't know why though someone that is in the DR alot has not asked Jeffery why the $80 for the st and put it here. If I see him while I am there I will ask. Once again everyone thanks for the info this is great.

I was at FOD on a Monday afternoon around 4.

There were maybe 10-12 girls, ranging from 5-8, and maybe 4 patrons.

Most of the chicas looked hardened / pro.

Chatted with about 4 or 5, confirmed they were too pro for my liking, and / or couldn't agree on services.

Every chica quoted same rate, 80 US for 2 hours. Ddidn't matter if I wanted 5 minutes, or an hour. Still $80.

After my beer I decided this was not for me, but on my way out spotted a nice chica, chatted with her, and agreed on services.

Now she said ok to 40 for one hour, but of course when we went to the bar to pay, they told me the 80 flat rate deal.

I said to myself WTF, the day sucked anyways and I didn't want to return home without a nut so I agreed.

The room I had was good. AC worked find, TV had lots of channels, water pressure was good, hot water, and clean.

Girl was a solid 7. 5-8. Full GFE. Perhaps a little too inexperienced for me though, but still definitely a good time, and definite repeat. OUTSIDE FOD.

We ended up using the whole 2 hours, and I tipped her for another nut. I think I gave her around 20 or 25 US for the tip. She told me she gets 1600 pesos from 80 US I paid the bar.

My friends were there earlier during the day, just a few hours before me.

They were also quoted 80 USD for 2 hours.

That's just a ridiculous rate.

I noticed Thursday and Friday night there seemed to be alot of traffic in and out.

I did forget my vibrator there, and returned several hours later and one of the guys working there returned it to me.

I still find the whole sitting in a bar full of chicas, and interviewing them to be very awkward.

It's also difficult to tell from afar sometimes their real appearance. A couple girls looked relatively 'fresh' from afar, and when I motioned for them to come talk to me, when they were close I could see they were def not fresh and looked more pro material.

I appreciate that they didn't come and harass me though. But still, I find it weird to be sitting there window shopping, interview and then send them away for the next one.

Maybe it's just because I'm a newbie to this scene.

I felt the same way in SXM though.

She told me she gets 1600 pesos from 80 US I paid the bar. This confirms what I have always understood. Field of Dreams take no fee or commission from the chica. Blackbeards never did either, the idea being that they could not then be charged with pimping (unlike Passions for example).

I am not sure if Blackbeards still take no money from the chicas. In any case, I don't think that argument would protect either place if the authorities wanted to shut them down. They could easily find other reasons.

The two hotels make their money from rooms, drinks, food, and scraps of commission from tours and money changing, etc.

In the case of Field of Dreams it appears they are now charging 1850 pesos (over US $42) for a ST room (2 hours). Whether they can get enough customers to pay that amount is doubtful. They are relying on guys like Haunted from the AIs. They don't want to rent a car to go to Sosua, find a working girl, then pay for a cabana. 90% of them wouldn't have a clue how to do all that anyway, so two hours with a pretty girl and nice room for US $80 still looks a bargain compared with the US.

Although fewer guys paying more may mean they do not lose out on room income, they will not take as much at the bar and for meals.

Thanks Haunted. It seems FOD is counting on guys that do this sort of fall back, Plan be type session. I certainly understand why you went through with it. Question is: Will you ever return? Also, did they turn down the deafening music volume yet and how many overnight guests were staying there? Regarding Charles post, the BB's girls have to pay around 1,000 to 1,500 pesos monthly direct to their Mamasans. This fund is what the Mamasans are paid from for their services such as the complicated chica scheduling, conflict resolution, putting on the bikini contest events, etc. It might be splitting hairs on the legality question but it seems to be working OK.

There has to be some business reason for it that I don't see. I'll be in Sosua this weekend and FOD would get some of my ST money if the room rates were reasonable (like RD $500 per hour or something like that).

Next step should be to copy any useful Field of Dreams posts from the Puerto Plata section to here. If there are any. They may all be already outdated.

Question is: Will you ever return? Also, did they turn down the deafening music volume yet and how many overnight guests were staying there? Never went back. The more I learned about Sosua the more ridiculous it seemed to ever go to FOD.

In fact I found a chica who lived just 5 minutes away from playa dorada. One night I had maybe an hour for a sexcapade.

I called this chica, she was at the playa dorada entrance 10 minutes later.

I think the only purpose for FOD is for people staying in playa dorada who absolutely have no other options. Then. Yes, I guess 80 isn't a bad deal.

I stopped by (FoD) in March around 3 pm on a Tuesday. There were about 10 girls lounging around. I talked to the bartender and she said $60 for the girl / $20 for the short stay room. I also founds reports on other foums stating the same rate. I was going to go to BlackBeards, but they were all booked, and had no short stay rooms. Your US $80 total agrees with other recent reports, but I am sure you or the bartender have the split wrong. FoD chicas have been charging 1600 pesos for ST for a year or two now as Haunted's recent report confirms.

Yes, very ghetto. I give you a lot of credit, for a first timer with no spanish you really went for it. I just hope you parked in a safe spot. Personally I would never travel 2500 miles and at quite an expense to have sex in a car, I'll spring the extra few bucks and fuck in a nice comfortable bed. Glad you had a great time.

You don't want to talk to Jeffery, you want to talk to Pedro. Definitely talk to Pedro. He is in charge of the day to day operations. Jeffrey is now in the background just doing the emails and reservations. It is supposed to be $40 Us to the girl for ST and $20ST for the standard room. Where they are ripping outsiders off is charging $40 for the room, but giving you a suite, not a regular room.

I keep hearing the price has gone up. I will take advantage of this in a few days if it is true that the cost is $20 for a ST room at FOD. (Not doubting you. Just trying to get an accurate assessment before I taxi all the way out there).

Husker, could it be that Pedro is the problem? When Jeffrey was around it seemed that FOD was limping around OK. I've observed a common Dominican business practice. That is, when business drops they tend to INCREASE prices rather than the opposite. My best advice for FOD is go back to the old pricing for ST room rental for visitors. My fear is that once enough experienced mongers catch on they will seek value elsewhere. I get the concept of capturing the Playa Dorada sneak away for a quick nut idea. Yet Playa Dorada is descending in popularity as a tourist venue in favor of Punta Cana. Has been that way for years. I'm skeptical that this Dominican business model will pan out. FOD's overnight bookings from what other mongers tell me is way down. On my last trip last month there was only one (1) overnight guest staying there that I interrogated at length and he won't be coming back. This is sad as the stable they had there was the best I've ever seen in 10 past trips. People vote with their wallets. Time will tell.

I give you a lot of credit, for a first timer with no spanish you really went for it. I just hope you parked in a safe spot. Personally I would never travel 2500 miles and at quite an expense to have sex in a car, I'll spring the extra few bucks and fuck in a nice comfortable bed. Glad you had a great time. Yes the sex in the backseat was unfortunate.

My trip however was for business first, and the p4 p was an added bonus.

The playa dorada incident, I literally only had about 20 minutes to play so my SUV was it.

The guard had already let her into the playa dorada area, so finding a safe place to park was easy.

In the end, 9 sessions for around 500 USD is still quite good value!

Just trying to get an accurate assessment before I taxi all the way out there. Where will you be staying? Why do you need a taxi to go to FoD? I would rather stay in Sosua or Puerto Plata or wherever, and have two sessions.

Husker Dude, are you sure its $20 for a standard room ST (2 hours)?

I keep hearing the price has gone up. I will take advantage of this in a few days if it is true that the cost is $20 for a ST room at FOD. (Not doubting you. Just trying to get an accurate assessment before I taxi all the way out there). A group of guys from another board & I were at FOD in March and talked to both Jeffrey and Pedro about prices, girls bringing their own towels instead of using ours, getting diet coke, extra wastebasket by the bed, etc. And all was agreed to then. Any problems, talk to Pedro as I previously stated, Jeffrey is more in the background currently. It may have changed since I've been there in mid-March though. The girls are much improved at FOD, and in my opinion, better than BB, as we visited there too, but did not stay at BB.

I would rather stay in Sosua or Puerto Plata or wherever, and have two sessions.I'll be staying overnight in Sosua very, very soon for the first time so maybe the town will make me forget about FOD. But I am worried about the lack of daytime chicas in Sosua and I know what FOD has to offer; that's why I inquired.

Other than FOD I have no idea what Puerta Plata has to offer or where I'd take a chica (that isn't as expensive as FOD ST rooms).

Other than FOD I have no idea what Puerto Plata has to offer or where I'd take a chica (that isn't as expensive as FOD ST rooms).I have always supported Field of Dreams, partly because it is good to have another place open to keep Blackbeards on their toes, and partly because it is an ideal location for a certain type of monger. People like I was, on my trips to the DR, on a very restricted budget who liked to hunt for chicas in the barrios of Puerto Plata and the smaller towns, villages and bateys along the North Coast from Luperon to Rio San Juan. That is one of the few ways it is better than Blackbeards, as it is located on the main road and one can easily access these places for a very few dollars.

But I am talking about residing there.

I have never seen it as a great place to visit for ST and if they are really charging around US $43 for a ST room (plus the usual 1600 for the chica), then it is not worthwhile for anyone. But even if the ST room charge reverts to the previous 800 pesos, if you have to pay another 1400 to 1600 pesos for a return trip by taxi, then it is still poor value. That is why I wrote I would rather use that money for an extra session in Sosua. But you could get there from Sosua for 100 pesos return trip by public transport (or 200 if you want some comfort).

Although daytime pickings are slim in Sosua, there should stilll be plenty keep one guy satisfied for a week. Best place to look is the beach. Or a better strategy is to collect phone numbers at night for use in the daytime. And only venture to FoD if you want a change of scenery rather than as a better source of chicas.

Puerto Plata is a much better place than Sosua to find non-pros and semi-pros, but when I did it I was staying at Field of Dreams or in the city itself. I would not have been so keen, nor would they, if I had to drag them back to Sosua. For one thing, it would be harder to offload one who was proving disappointing if I had taken them on a 35 mile round trip.

Definitely talk to Pedro. He is in charge of the day to day operations. Jeffrey is now in the background just doing the emails and reservations. It is supposed to be $40 Us to the girl for ST and $20ST for the standard room. Where they are ripping outsiders off is charging $40 for the room, but giving you a suite, not a regular room.Come on, aren't you guys being a little harsh? From my view, it seems that they are raising prices not to be greedy, but to encourage people to stay there at the hotel. They don't make much money if you don't stay there. They make money off the room, food, and booze. I am presuming that most of the money goes to the girl.

I generally didn't like the location, as I like to have a walkable neighborhood. But yes, it is located somewhat centrally, and cabs should give you easy access to anything. IF the girls are slightly better looking and provide better GFE, why wouldn't you want to stay there?

Also, I've never actually run a hotel / motel / brothel / etc.

But. It would seem to me that if you are only 20% occupied and four or five guys taxi in, drink-party-mingle a bit and then inquire about a ST room to take their new friend, you (being the manager) would cut them a fair deal.

Now FOD would have a new group of fellas who certainly may return to give the place more money in the future and that previous empty and revenue-less room has a paying customer. Plus imagine the positive word of mouth about FOD the guys initiate back home!

Now at BB I can understand. That place is filled to capacity and a group of dudes SHOULD have to pay a premium if the rooms are doing go-go business.

Can anybody with hospitality industry experience chime in here as I honestly can't figure out why its OK for a manager to watch groups of guys get back in the taxi and drive away never to return after just a couple of drinks.

It is in the Dominican genetic makeup to grab an extra buck today, or try to, and not to think about tomorrow. It is like the old "frog and scorpion" fable. They just cannot help themselves.

We have seen how they offended Haunted, who would probably have been a returning customer on this and many future trips had they cut him a reasonable deal.

Letting short-time rooms for 800 pesos would be quite profitable. Their cleaners would be delighted to pocket an extra 100 pesos for a quick reclean and change the sheets.

A couple of years ago we organized a big party there to try and get Field of Dreams back on the map. There were about thirty guys and forty chicas. It was a great afternoon and the bar and restaurant, and the chicas, made a lot of money. Everyone was happy and well-behaved and there was no downside. Field of Dreams should have built on that and kept up the momentum of goodwill.

They could still charge the greenhorns from the AIs (say) 1200 for the room. The way to do that would be to make the standard charge 1200 for three hours. (Most AI guys would only use it for an hour or two anyway as they would need to get back to their wives). Then offer members of this and other boards a "special" rate of 800 for two hours only.

Add the extra bar and restaurant sales and it would be well worth doing for them all the time they have empty rooms (which is 95% of the time).

If they didn't like the look of a guy (drunk, drugged, or known trouble-maker), they could just say "Sorry, no rooms available".

I have never been to BB myself. I tried to go there once, but I couldn't find it (I had a rental car). But everything I am hearing is that FOD has slightly better looking girls that are more relaxed and give better GFE. If that's the case, why not provide financial incentive for guys to stay there? FOD and BB are not like Sosua. They survive on repeat customers and word of mouth amongst the punting community. They want to create a habit of people staying there. I would be willing to drive away the drunk one-timers to encourage the steady guys to come. They obviously see that BB has a steady stream of repeat visitors, and they want to dip into that customer pool. They are trying to survive like any other business, and they know the dollars and cents of it better than we do. It's easy to throw garbage from the cheap seats. Don't assume that they are stupid.

Personally, I don't understand why people would prefer BB. I get their newsletter, and have seen all the posted pics in the photo gallery. I have never seen a single pretty girl in their stable. They all look like cows to me. And its so far away from any other attractions. I really need to visit that place, because I truly don't get why its so popular.

The distribution over the years has been the majority in the 5-7 range, with a percentage being more spectacular. That said, I remember some amazing times with "average" looking girls with great attitudes and performances. I would rather have a great time in bed with a ccute 7 than disappointment with a 9-10 who thinks she is a model. But there HAVE been some stunners at BB. I recently viewed the website of one of the high-priced 1000 dollar a day places and of over a dozen girls, I only saw 3-4 stunners. But none I would pay those prices for.

I tried the Sosua experience, but its not my taste. (Again, to each his own). I didn't like spending time trolling the streets or bars. Another advantage of the BB / FOD model is the controlled environment. If there are problems, you have an authority to complain to. Trolling is "buyer beware. " Convenient, quick, quality control. Some call it "spoon-feeding" but that's okay. Do what you enjoy, and don't judge others.

Again, this is just me. I know there are guys who love combing the streets for chicas.

Will try to include some BB pics over the years.

In my experience, most 9-10 do not offer great service. It is true everywhere, not just FOD or BB. As everyone wants to try out 9-10's, they do not need to provide good service to win repeat customers.

Perhaps I was a bit harsh. But my "harshness" was not not meant to say that they are SO ugly, but rather, that I am so puzzled as to why BB has such a loyal and vocal following. Everything I have seen rates the girls as average AT BEST. Guys aren't raving about the girls, the service, or the logistical things like food etc. They complain about the taxi mafia and how far away it is. AND YET, when it comes time to defend BB as a whole, they chime in like born-again christians defending the Bible.

I want to visit BB not because I am so interested in their venue, but I just have this nagging curiosity about what I am missing. Are they pining over memories from years past? I just don't get it.

BTW, and off topic, have you guys seen the new "Blue Oxygen" Adult resort? They are asking for over $1100 dollars a night! Yup, that's US Dollars. When Oxygen used to have promotionals for about $500 a night, I used to defend them as a once in a while splurge. But holy crap, what are they thinking? To their credit, they actually post photographs of their girls, without blurred out faces. They are all dominicans. They are cute, and definitely a notch above FOD/BB, but not $1100 a night cute. Even if they flew in Russian women, it would still be outrageous. You can save money going to Moscow yourself instead!

In my comments, the 1000 dollar a night website I viewed was theirs (Blue Oxygen) and I only saw about 3-4 beauties out of over a dozen shown.

In my opinion, very close to what is available at BB for a fraction of that price.

(This is the FOD thread, but the question was raised here).

My intro to the DR was at BB, back in 2005.

Its value to me was not that each girl is a model. A normal distribution of beauty, meaning most are above average (5) and around "7" or so, but attractive.

And guys' tastes differ, regarding slim, thick, facial features. There are the occasional stunners (but your "stunner" may not be mine).

The chief value of BB, especially for newbies, is the controlled environment and quality control.

You have a well managed hotel / restaurant (in the DR!) with a good selection of available attractive women.

No druggies, no thieves, no scams. Any mental cases, criminal types or drama queens are told to leave.

If you have a problem, there is no screaming in a motel room, you take the complaint to the management or mamasan for resolution.

The girls don't want to get "fired" because this is a safe place for them to work, as well.

No street violence, shakedowns-abuse from crooked cops and not at the mercy of psycho clients in a hotel room.

The girls try to avoid problems because they want to work there and there is a waiting list to work there.

The girls get public health classes on STD, and have to get tested monthly.

Security guards patrol the property by night.

For the customers, its a safe, convenient, comfortable place to monger.

Especially for non-Spanish speakers new to the DR and its problems, and criminal dynamics, this is a great place.

No rip-offs, no crazies, no criminal / police problems, and its a short walk upstairs to your room versus the back and forth from bars to hotels.

Isolated? Yeah, by necessity, to avoid hassles from crooked politicians and cops.

And isolated from what? I don't go to the DR for golf, tennis, scuba diving. Just muff diving.

Its quiet.

And when I was going regular, that was fine by me. I prefer a laid-back place, not a bunch of screaming cases of arrested development.

Chill on the beach, a nap, smoke a cigar, relax. Or a matinee with a young chica.

If you're experienced in the DR, it might be boring because its so easy.

Just point-click, and take her to your room for some fun.

For some its the chase, but when I go there, I have limited time to spend on the chase, and my Spanish is very good.

When my body allowed me, I used to spend time with an average of 4 chicas a day, and the occasional "Happy Hour" or menage a trois, with 2 chicas.

What I usually say is I like seafood but I don't have time to fish. I like sex, but I only have a few days and I'm a lazy MF.

I don't enjoy what others call "the challenge of the hunt. " You are paying for it, so it is not a hunt. Thinking that is self delusion.

But there are places that are similar to BB. Other places are as good or better. Why the fanaticism? Is it just a fanboy thing?

Also, do the girls really get tested monthly? Do you know that for a fact, or is that a passed around statement that guys willingly believe? If they truly are, than that is a big plus.

(Keep in mind, you haven't been there yet. FOD has been approaching BB on multiple levels, but is screwing itself time and time again).

The girls really do have to get tested. A few years ago I was sitting with the mamasan when a girl came in to drop off her paperwork, and a chica I was with had me wait for her in the car while she went into a clinic in Puerto Plata to get tested.

Not being sarcastic, if after you visit BB you still know of comparable places in the DR, for similar prices, I'd love to know of them.

The old criticism that "they are stupid because they are raising their prices even when demands are low" are obviously said by people who have never run a business. When any business starts going deep into the red, and you have bills to pay RIGHT NOW, the supply and demand laws don't always apply. Sometimes you need to raid some pockets just to stay alive for the moment. This is their business. Unlike you and I, their livlihood depends on it. I am sure that they know the dollars and cents of it better than you. Don't stoop to calling dominicans genetically stupid.

If you think about it, this is just good insurance for a business. Imagine a monger said "I caught XYZ at BB / FOD;" Business customers would cease overnight and one also runs the risk of infecting all the girls in the establishment. Just good business sense, really.

You don't get that on the street.I agree, it should theoretically be great for both them and us. But medical care costs money. And if they are testing every girl there monthly, the bills must really add up. I can imagine that there are places that skip it, or do less expensive tests, like only for gonorrhea / chlamydia.

The bars in Angeles City in the Phillipines like to claim that they test all the girls regularly, but punters who live in the PI and know it well say that its a joke. I desperately want it to be true, but I am always skeptical, and its usually why I keep an open mind towards more expensive venues, like Oxygen.

I can only say I have personally seen evidence of testing for BB girls, but I imagine in Asia, or Africa, its uncommon.

I am all in favor of testing. It is in everybody's best interest.

But any monger who places any reliance on it is naive. A few hours after being testing most of those chicas will be fucking their Dominican partners bareback, so even if the test is competently done, the results are only guaranteed for a few hours, not for a month.

Certainly a lot better than nothing, and helps to weed out chicas with endemic illnesses, but that doesn't help the mongers who have fucked them in the meanwhile.

The other point is that Dominican professionals have various degrees of competence and most are corruptible. Obtaining a "clean" bill of health by bribery is routine for job applicants, for example.

First off sorry about this report taking so long to write.

I was at Field Of Dreams from 6-3-14 through 6-7-14. I had a great time everything went perfect.

I flew in to POP on JetBlue with no problems. First one off and on to customs first getting my $10 tourist card. Before walking by the money exchange at the airport a very sexy chica welcomes me to the DR and tells me the best exchange rates are at the airport so as I walk by I ask what the exchange rate is at the window and he tells me 36.7 for one dollar American. I smile and walk on by. Out at the curb there is Carlos walking up to me with a big smile. He drove me the whole time I was in the DR he reliable on time and very helpful. He drives a lot for FOD but also anyone who needs a reliable driver who know the DR like the back of their hand. His number is 809-844-6405.

Got to FOD at 2:30 pm and their is 15 chicas at the bar, pool and pool table and about 5 customers. I check in no problem and go to the room and unpack take a shower. The room number 5 is spotless cool and the TV is on. The walls were white no murals' the shower is hot there is two trash cans one by the bed and one in the toilet and three towels. Each day the room is made up while I eat breakfast and done very well.

Go out after getting settled in and sit at the bar. Met the British bar tender Annett she is one nice lady very helpful as all of the staff but she is the best. Took me over in her car to the ATM at Playa Dorado (they do have an ATM at FOD but for some reason my card did not work but did see another guest use theirs) and any question she can answer. Met my first chica sit and had a few beers with and the to the room for a ST (Nelly) she was very good and I had her for one more time before I left.

All of the chicas I had were very good to great they all DFK, BBBJ, daty their motto was what make you happy? Now I am an old man and only had 4 different chicas and one was a happy hour that was three hours. The very best as far as I had was Coffee WOW she was so much fun.

While I was there they had all in red all in black and the baby doll nightie and the bikini contest. Like the chicas all were very good to great the bikini contest was off the hook I think we were about five minutes into it when the first bikini came off I was lucky enough to be one of the judges. The baby doll nightie was also one hell of a party. There were five hotel guests and about 20 others guys there for 3 of the 4 nights I was there.

I talked to Jeff and Pedro about the $40 dollar charge for ST room. Jeff was saying to get dropped off at Playa Dorado and walk to the resort without the taxi seeing you, drive yourself. He said the taxi mafia is that strong if they don't give them their $20 they will not bring people there. But he was still trying to fight it and does not like to be extorted.

Pedro also added that even if you tell them that you want to go to FOD and you have been there before and don't pay them their kickback they will do stuff like say oh you don't know they are closed or a bunch of other shit. So this is why the extra and I personally can understand it. If I was running their business I would not eat this ether as there goes my cost for the room in the cabs pocket. Does not make good business since. Now as I was talking to them there were all these chicas around causing my mind to wander so I forgot to ask if more than one comes to FOD in a taxi is it just a onetime $40 charge then the rest of the people are $20. Also I would think if you use their taxi Carlos or I can't remember the other ones name then it would be $20 for the room which would also more than likely be cheaper taxi fare.

Now as far as staying there I had a great time felt safe the whole time was fun the whole time and met some really good folks there. I know that these places are not for everyone some like Sousa some do not. I am the do not, don't need any problems and don't want to keep my guard up at all times. I like to be safe and know that there is not going to be a problem unless I do something so stupid that there needs to be a problem.

We are on a roll today! Another well-written report with solid info.

Glad you enjoyed your stay, RockC123.

Interesting that they link the inflated room charge to the taxi-driver's commission. But Haunted drove himself there in his rented "bangwagon" and still got fleeced. Looks like they will try it on regardless of how you arrived.

Not that I have much sympathy with anyone who arrives there in a private taxi. Simply not necessary given the location.

I am tempted to do the "walk to the entrance" thing to see if they want to charge me $40 for an hour or two.

I really, really like FOD but with the continued low occupancy I don't know how they will make it long term.

Which is why any reliable testimonies by members who know for a fact that testing takes place at a certain venue is a BIG plus.

I like to be safe and know that there is not going to be a problem unless I do something so stupid that there needs to be a problem.I am skeptical as to just how this could last or be enforced by the cabbies.

Where would the client originate?

In Playa Dorada, walk to the exit or take a short cab to the Playa Dorada exit.

Even if you do it 2,3,4 times and the cabbie sees you, what will he do? Refuse to take you from your hotel to the PD exit?

If he refuses the fare, just complain to the hotel.

Will the hotel allow him to provide service at the hotel? Will he risk losing regular business?

Eventually a cabbie will accept the fare or risk losing business at the hotel.

If anywhere else in Puerto Plata, just ask to be taken to the PD entrance, and walk across the street.

Will a cabbie refuse a fare? Just use another.

I really can't see how this could be enforce by the cabbies.

Another example of Dominican business sense, I'm afraid. Squeeze the gringos or FOD until you risk losing business.

Penny wise, pound foolish.

And anyone entering FOD should say they walked across the road from PD and demand the $20 room.

Dropped in to FoD this afternoon with another board member (his first time there). I hoped to get to the bottom of the confusion over room rates.

No management on site for two hours (a longstanding complaint about FoD). I asked Pedro's wife (who was left in charge and she clearly, though rather surlily, said it was 2500 pesos total for the chica and room for two hours, which is fair and brings it into line with Barba Negra. The chicas in our group all agreed. But then she came back and added "for members". I have no idea who 'members" are. Presumably regular clients, so Dominicans and ex-pats?

After a couple of hours chilling out, my companion was flirting with the idea of taking the chica who had been hitting on him. We went to the bar to confirm the price. There was now a Dominican male behind the bar. I asked him if he was Pedro (the boss) and he said yes, though I was not convinced. If that is the boss I am less than impressed. He went into a long rigmarole with a calculator and got himself confused converting between dollars and pesos. I told him to forget the fucking dollars. My companion was European, so why would he want the price in dollars? We had asked the price in pesos.

They only have two products on offer: chicas to salida out, and chicas plus short-time room. If this guy is supposed to be the top hombre, how come he would not instantly know the price?

Eventually he came up with a price of 2950 pesos so we walked out.

We have had some satisfactory reports lately from guys who have stayed there, and that might remain a good option, but after our experience I cannot recommend it for short-time visits. Leave that to suckers from Playa Dorada.

Silly really, because I counted 28 chicas on the premises and only saw two doing business while we were there. If they offered a sensible short-term package they would sell more drinks and food, make a bit on the rooms, and keep more chicas fed.

My companion is staying at Barba Negra and said that there are more chicas at BN and of slightly better average quality. Certainly those that were at FoD made no effort to attract customers apart from the one who attached herself to us. They all seemed dispirited.

It seems the curse of mismanagement and poor business practice will wreck the place again.

You have to wonder if it would be worth it to allow the place to go under and have John, the BN owner step in, buy it, and make it a success.

I have to say the guy seemed to be more confusing himself than trying to scam us, which is why I wonder if it really was Pedro. Maybe a barman who had been told to price in dollars and when we asked in pesos he was not up to making the conversion despite using a calculator.

I noted the 2950 pesos BS; did he flat refuse the offer of 2500 or nothing?

He probably was too timid to defy his instructions in dollars.

I suggest anyone going in there continue to offer 2500 or nothing.

This whole business of taxis demanding 20 dollars is nonsense; no way they could enforce that if the mongers act to circumvent it, and no reason for FOD to demand more either.

I suggest don't go there at all for short sessions. It may still be a good place to stay, though, as some recent trippers have posted.

Another member has suggested that "members" may designate members of another board with whom Field of Dreams has a deal. I was aware of that deal, but I don't think the numbers in that group would be high enough to affect Field of Dreams' profitability. And if it was a "discount" to a specific group, why would Pedro's wife even mention it to strangers like us?

After a couple of hours chilling out, my companion was flirting with the idea of taking the chica who had been hitting on him..I can't think of a single business situation that would be easier to improve than the Field of Dreams ST room rate controversy. I've had easier times trying to figure out a Rubik's Cube than this situation at FOD.

Guys show up. Guys want private time with an on-site female. FOD offers guys decent rate. Guys are happy. Guys come back with more cash and / or tell their friends to do the same. FOD business increases exponentially.

And regarding the chicas.

When I was there in May I noticed that 1/3 of the chicas eagerly mingled, 1/3 propped themselves up close-by for you to direct your attention towards and 1/3 stayed away and primped and watched like Beverly Hills honeys at an exclusive Las Vegas club and you weren't an NBA baller or some rapper so you got no attention.

What's up with that last third of chicas? I thought they were at work to feed their kids?

If FOD wants to charge $80 for a ST session, then they should be straight up and honest about it and give the chicas a fair share of the extra $.

This whole taxi mafia boogeyman nonsense is complete bullshit made up by Pedro to gouge some customers, even if they do give some drivers a tip.

I was there a few times last year and paid the $80 in pesos each time and I didn't have a problem with it.

In fact, I had good times eating, drinking, and partying there.

When I found out that I was gouged, I was pissed and discussed this with Jeffrey on another site.

Jeffrey offered to give me back $20 next time but there isn't going to be a next time.

Fuck them!

And how can they need a calculator to figure out the price? Are they scammers?

Here is my POV as a visitor. I am looking for decent company and affordable ST room rates at love motel level. Since it is a day time action the fair deal is around 2-2. 5 K all in. Now, there is a business POV and their model, which I don't know. Reasonably FOD has to be an adult resort, making money from lodging and catering and not be perceived as a brothel since it's a straight road to being shut down. If there is no good turnover of customers, then girls don't make money and hence the talent is not attracted to show up. Unless you're a loaded dumbfuck from across the street there is no point to shell out premium for bored tattooed bitches with sagged tits and stretch marks. Again, maybe there are enough dumbfucks to make this model work. Good luck to them and FOD.

I smell bullshit.With all the discussion and problems with rental cars and per trip taxis, I am really surprised that no enterprising young dominican has just rented his services as driver for the day. Seriously, that's the way it goes in most other countries. Hasn't anyone here ever hired a driver?

The few times I have been the the DR, I have rented a car. This has risks and advantages, which everyone knows. But I would much prefer to just pay someone something like $40 to drive me everywhere for 24 hours. That would include to the beaches and waterfalls in the day, and bars and stuff at night. With all the gringo/tourists on the north coast, I honestly don't understand why this simple industry hasn't developed here.

And as an aside, why is everyone going zonkers over FOD? They are motivated more than anyone to provide good service, or they will go out of business. Unless someone is scamming you unbeknownst to the owners, why get mad? Some of you guys are ranting on like they owe you something. If you don't like it, then don't go there. If you really want to stick it to them, that's the way to do it. There are many other venues along the North Coast.

Some of you guys are ranting on like they owe you something.They do owe at least one thing, which any business owes the public. A clearly stated and consistent pricing policy which enables prospective customers to make up their own minds. Not a different BS story everytime someone walks in.


If you don't like it, then don't go there. If you really want to stick it to them, that's the way to do it.I think that is the conclusion most of us have now come to, as far as short-time visits are concerned. Not because we want to "stick it" to FoD (that would be childish), but simply because we know we can get better value elsewhere.

These comments do not apply to staying there as residents. Many recent posters have been very happy with their stays.


There are many other venues along the North Coast.Actually there are not. Blackbeards is the only one which is similar, and that is inconveniently located for short-time visits and often has no spare rooms available. Field of Dreams is ideally located for short-time visits, so it is a shame they have priced themselves out of the market for regular mongers. They will still get some business from the ever diminishing clientele of Playa Dorada, from inexperienced mongers who cannot find their own women, from the small membership of the other board with whom they have an arrangement, and from their (usually) sparse number of residents. (Apparently four rooms were occupied on the day of my recent visit). I cannot see that being enough to support the 28 putas I saw in attendance.

If some bartender is scamming people in another way, that's another thing completely.

2. I have actually defended FOD policy severak times. I think that its unreasonable to assume that we know about running their business better than they do. By "sticking it to them," I was obviously referring to the complainers looking for a way to focus their "rage. " Instead of whining on this site, they should just not go there.

A guy in Playa Dorada tells the cabbie to take him where he can find some women. It becomes the cabbie's choice and he goes where he get a kickback.

The cabbie has to get his kickback immediately, or coordinate for later payment.

This is a valid reason for the venue to charge more, to provide the kickback.

Problem is, it only works once. Once the monger knows where to go, it becomes HIS choice where to go, not the cabbie's.

After that, the cabbie cannot claim his "bounty" as he did not steer the business to the hotel. (And he is not going to refuse to take the fare where the fare wants to go).

The hotel / venue charging the "bounty" to clients that were not steered there by a cabbie is not valid, as a kickback cannot / should not be paid.

If there is a sufficient flow of first-timers from Playa Dorada, this model could work, but it will lose regulars / repeat business, once people learn the deal.

Time will tell.

Anyone reading this forum will know to do that.

The first-timer in POP / Playa Dorada will just go where the cabbie takes him and pay the increased ST price.

No one in this forum should accept a jacked-up ST price. Eventually, maybe the owner will see the trend from repeat clients.

About a month ago I went behind enemy lines to slay some chicas and see what exactly they had to offer at FOD. I must say I was hesitant to leave a review because I had an awful time there and if I mentioned the details they would know exactly who I am, because I was told management reads this forum. Up until now I had planned on returning simply for the chicas, but now I've completely given up hearing the latest drama there.

Even more so if you have no intention of going back.

If the management read criticisms on this and other forums there is an outside chance they might start to implement improvements. If all they ever read is Manny assuring us they know exactly what they are doing they won't even try. I know John at Blackbeards welcomes fair comment and uses it to continually improve the place.

It is inevitable that our mileage will vary. Only a fool will be swayed one way or the other by just one or two reviews. But if enough people report back then a consensus emerges which can be meaningful.

I was at FoD this afternoon and Anita (the middle-aged English lady behind the bar) confirmed the price is US $40 for the chica and US $20 for the room (both for 2 hours). Then an American ex-pat I had never previously met told me he always paid these amounts.

Guests staying at FOD ST-$40, TLN $75,24 hr $125. So normal prices for guests as it has been.

Non-guests of FOD (Visitors) ST-$60, TLN-$95,24 hr-$145.

Jeffrey did not respond as of yet for my question of the room rate for visitors. He stated these rates effective June 15 and the extra money for visitors all goes to the chica.

From $60 to $80. Because of the taxi mafia getting a $20. Commission as has been reported and now he is stating that a girl is $60. ST for non guests and the girl gets it all is he paying the taxi mafia $20. And not making any money on the overall transaction? Also, if a non guest takes a girl for 24 hours then he would need a room for 24 hours, wouldn't he then be considered a guest instead of a non guest?

OK, good!

Another post citing a post by Jeffery from FOD said FOD guests pay ST 40 US.

(If I am a guest staying at FOD, why the hell would I need a ST room?

I presume the 40 US for the chica. Duh. Didn't see his post, but don't confuse the issue for guests. Chica is 40 US, period.

Bottom line, it appears visitors' price is now back to the previous price of 60 US, as it was before.

I just heard that everybody's favorite taxi driver in Puerto Plata Carlos got arrested for stealing from FOD. I told you guys before to be careful with this guy, that he was not to be trusted, I don't want to get into why I knew he was a scumbag. What I heard was that him and the FOD maintenance kid Joel (sp?) conspired to steal 180.000 pesos and Pedro had them arrested. I heard this from a chica so take it with a grain of salt but I've known her for awhile so I doubt that it is total BS. I hate thieves, if what I heard is true I hope he rots in jail.

I wrote Jeffery and asked what was up, as in my report I thought he was a great guy to have around. I hate rumors as they are most often wrong. I would hate to see someone's work suffer and lose money because someone wants to hurt someone's reputation my mistake or because they don't like them. Here is his response to email.

"On behalf of the entire team at the Field of Dreams Adult Resort, I thank you for your continued interest in our one-of-a-kind, luxury, adult resort.

In respect to Carlos, I would like to make one thing VERY clear before I address the issue that you raised. Carlos, as a driver, has ALWAYS been punctual, polite and has charged our guests somewhere around half of what the "Puerto Plata Taxi Mafia" would charge for any trip that he does. He is an excellent, taxi driver who speaks impeccable English and knows the entire region like the back of his hand. In that respect, he has always been a solid addition to the FOD team that serves our guests and patrons.

What he DID do was accept to buy, from a crooked maintenance guy, some of the materials that we store to upgrade and repair the resort itself. To this day, I do not believe that he conspired with Joel (our employee) to steal from us. But what I do know is that he purchased goods at a very low price from a dubious source and probably knew that everything came from the hotel. He never asked questions and basically turned a blind eye. This apparent disloyalty was addressed and Carlos himself admitted that he was remiss in not coming to us himself and report what was going on. We agreed that he would never be this disloyal again and we made him pay a pretty good restitution for his involvement, an amount that hurt him financially and left a clear message. By offering him the choice of paying this monetary fine or merely walking away from an association with us, we tested his attachment to the resort and how far he was willing to go to make amends. He stepped up to the plate and we have accepted him back into the fold. As far as I am concerned, this matter is over and Carlos has learned his VERY expensive lesson.

Trusting that this answers your question.

Jeffrey."I just lost ALL respect for the management of FOD because if you read what Jeffery said he is saying that Carlos bought known stolen goods from Joel that he knew was from FOD. In the USA That is a crime and he would be in jail.

Carlos scammed me out of 5000 pesos, I won't go into detail here on the forum but he is a bad guy in nice guy suit, plain and simple. You go ahead and believe Jeffery if you want to, he himself is a BS artist. Why didn't you ask the true owner of FOD, Pedro, Jeffery is just an employee there, he owns nothing.

The only reason they took him back is because of all the dumb fuck gringos that go down there and don't speak a word of spanish and fall in love with Carlos' smooth talking. I fell into it to a degree, he promised me that he could do something for me and in turn fucked me in the ass. Believe Jeffery if you want to, I could care less.

yes...many, many new chicas; some old favorites too. very few guests due to it being low season.

very slow pace and you have a selection of any chica you want because she probably won't be wifed up. i was nearly gang raped upon arrival. good times.

Most guys I've seen there other than for another board party. About 10 or more rooms taken. Lots of new girls, but talent over all is up. My best experience at FOD to date. Food was even very good, girls excellent with most being GFE. Talked to Jeffrey and HE quoted for outside visitors it was $20 for the room ST and $60 for the girls. Rates are the same for guys staying at the resort 1600ST and 3000 TLN. Bikini contest was wild with several girls doing girl on girl, topless, ect. The judges took a lot of.

Taking outside visitors for a ride. Just do the math.Agreed.

In the DR, if anyone quotes you in dollars, they are probably trying to con you. If they quote in a mixture of dollars and pesos, as here, they are definitely trying to con you.

870 pesos for a room is reasonable but then you are paying 2610 pesos for the chica instead of 1600. This confirms the current pricing has settled down after a period when we were given different tariffs, and it is a rip-off. Leave it to the newbies popping over from Playa Dorada and others who don't know better.

FoD is still a good option to stay at, though, especially for those alarmed by the stories coming out of Sosua. Just not good value for a day visit.

I spent most of the last four weeks in Puerto Plata finding an apartment to rent and furnishing it with the intention of dividing my time between there, Colombia and a little time in the USA. I ended up spending two nights at FOD last week also.

Last week I had three friends of mine fly into POP, two guys from Canada that rented a condo at Las Terrazzas in Sosua and another guy that was staying at BB's for the Annual Scurvy Dog Halloween Party. One day we all met up at BB's for the bikini contest, I really didn't want to go but went anyway as I wanted to visit my buddy that was staying there and I also wanted to say Hi to Niko the former bartender at FOD, he is a cool guy. I've seen enough bikini contests between BB's and FOD where it doesn't do much for me but I must say they had their "A" team there that day, wow.

After a couple days, my friends that were staying in Sosua were asking me to hook them up with girls outside of Sosua because they kept having problems with the ones in Sosua, these guys are vets and they don't hesitate to send a girl packing if she gets even a little bit out of line. I love my friends but I am selfish when it comes to sharing my favorites and these guys are a little crazy sometimes so I gave them contact info to one girl each and it didn't work out for one of them and the other guy scored a home run, he kept her coming back every day for a romp three days in a row she is that good,19 years old 90 pounds soaking wet with a rack that is just unbelievable, he thanked me over and over, I'll post a body shot of her. My suggestion was for us to go to FOD and they could pull girls from there or just grab a room.

One of the reasons my friends had come to the DR was to throw me a little divorce party, I've been on my own and separated for thirteen years and finally got around to the formality of making it all legal, the party was epic. My Canadian friends are well heeled and sometimes throw money around like drunken sailors and the two day party at FOD was no exception. Well over $1000. Bar bill buying bottles of tequila at $100. A bottle, food for anyone that wanted it etc. My two friends had the double room that has the large living area and we had blowjob contests, stripper contests, it was just off the hook.

As far as FOD is concerned, there were plenty of girls both nights 20+. But as I have mentioned before they get spread out and when it is slow many of them go into the dorm where they live but because we were buying them booze we had the whole crew at our disposal. I've always contended that the girls at FOD are more fun than BB's,just my opinion. And the same goes for FOD in general, if I tried to party at BB's the way I've partied at FOD I would get thrown out plain and simple.

At night the bar was quite busy with locals drinking and partying and gringos passing through but few if any staying there, I don't get it, They have the best beds in town, clean pool, cold a / see and plenty of hot water for $45. Plus tax=$52. A night.

Then again, maybe I DO get it. Pedro seems to have backed away from running the place and is letting his two kids and ex girlfriend run it and they are all clueless. His ex is a thief, his son is just a bartender though seems like a nice kid and his daughter does nothing all day. This is just my observation but I have owned my own businesses all of my life and I'm pretty observant. They finally had a good chef in the kitchen and they fired him, big mistake. And I see no capital being reinvested in the place, for example out of three hotel rooms the door locks were broken on two of them, two of us didn't give a shit because we travel with pacsafes and milockie devices for the hotel safes, my other friend bitched about it and was promptly moved to another room. But on a positive note, the things that matter to me like hot water, a clean pool and well running a / see were all working fine and as I mentioned there were plenty of ladies to party with and that we did in a grand fashion, I will still recommend FOD.

As a side note, three of the hottest girls to ever walk through the doors of FOD have been taken out of the business by dumb assed gringos thinking that they are captain save a hoe's,what is wrong with you guys? One of the girls,18 years old married a guy in at least his 50's and had a big lavish wedding in Santiago, I saw all the pictures or I wouldn't believe it. Now don't get me wrong, this girl was a LOT of fun in the sack but I sure as fuck wouldn't marry her.

This is the girl that was the home run for my friend. Some of you guys might know her as she has a handful of gringos as FB friends but she is not a full time puta and is only 19. Like I said she is 90 pounds soaking wet and a champion in the cama. She would NOT visit us at FOD which was a good choice on her part because we would have put her on the rotisserie for sure, hahaha. Full disclosure, these are not my photos, they are from her FB page. I will give her info out to well contributing senior members ONLY.

We also had a stripper contest, same deal same result. We were up until 3 am Making a lot of noise in the room, that would not be tolerated at BB's and sometimes wouldn't be tolerated at FOD but FOD was empty.

The water is HOT and the flow is strong at FOD (if anyone doesn't think that matters then spend a few nights at Blackbeards). The chicas provide EXCELLENT GFE. I am leaving Sosua today after a couple of days and it is just a bunch of 8's and 9's quoting 3000 pesos and 4000 pesos now and the service is rapido. FOD is a BARGAIN compared to Sosua. Trust me.

If the business was ran better I think FOD would blow Blackbeards out of the water after a couple of years.

If the business was ran better I think FOD would blow Blackbeards out of the water after a couple of years.That is an enormous "if".

You ignore the Dominican mindset. As soon as FOD started thriving they would start resting on their laurels and get sloppy. Then when trade slackened off again they would double their prices to make up. We have seen that syndrome so many times. The reason Blackbeards has survived and ridden out the odd rough patch is that they have gringo management.

A great example of that was Luz Maria's in Puerto Plata (for a couple of years "Ana Mirian's", better known to us as "Frank's").

Dominicans never miss an opportunity to fuck up a good thing.

Still, I pleased to see you put in a good word for FoD. With the inflated short-time room-rate it is no longer good value for a quick visit, but still a good option for a stay.

Quick question, Manizales911. Is the "ex" you're speaking of the fine ass night manager with the nice-ass? I thought she was married to Pedro, it would be nice if they would just tell us this type of stuff to avoid any problems. She tried to cheat me out of money as well so we may be referring to the same chick, but let me know I'm confused.

I just booked my first trip for 1/30 till 2/3 and then noticed this was Super Bowl weekend. I suspect prices will be inflated and the place a bit chaotic. Any advice on how to have a good experience without wasting a bunch of time / energy / resources?So are you booked at FOD? I was curious about pricing, I've stayed there before and the reservation / booking process is somewhat screwed up and I need to know the price you were quoted.

Any advice on how to have a good experience without wasting a bunch of time / energy / resources?You are fortunate to be booked there for SB weekend because in years past it was always booked solid for a big Superbowl party, maybe the group moved on to another venue because there is only one TV in the bar now, there used to be eight. The prices at FOD don't change because of SB weekend, when you say chaotic, that means fun to me, I'm not sure what kind of fun you have. I'll probably be there for the game, I like to go there to drink and cause chaos, look for a fat guy in a Red Sox hat, that be me, I'll buy the first round of tequila, hahaha. Seriously, I have spent a lot of time at FOD plus I am living in Puerto Plata for the next six months at least, if you have any specific questions I can help you out.

So are you booked at FOD? I was curious about pricing, I've stayed there before and the reservation / booking process is somewhat screwed up and I need to know the price you were quoted.The regular rooms there are $45. + tax,$53. All in. That price has been in place a long time, never heard of anyone being charged anything different.

And if so do you keep it hush-hush sharing with only certain chicas or do you take it outside of your room to share with all the chicas?

I've seen guys just keep the bottle in their room and bring chicas in and give them drinks. I've also seen a few bring their bottle out. As long as you buy some stuff from their bar, they don't seem to mind. Manizaes911 is dead on about partying at FOD. Anything goes there, even out in the open bar, whereas BB does not tolerate any naked chicas other than the jacuzzi or in your room. Chicas at FOD are more party girls and BB more "professional" in my opinion.

I agree about the differences between BB and FOD. IMHO, FOD is just SOOOOO much more fun than BB but every time I go to both BB is much busier (also, as a side note, I like the fact that at FOD you can actually SEE the chicas at night...BB can be too dark to get a good look at the potential dates in the restaurant/ bar area and the tiny upstairs disco).

The chicas at BB are cool and all but sometimes you get the impression that hanging with the men is something they've "got to" do but the FOD girls literally WANT you to interact with them and keep them entertained.

I asked about the liquor situation because I am looking for ideas to lift the atmosphere when I am there as the lone customer with no other fellas at the resort to do the heavy lifting.

When I'm not in my room with a chica I like to hang in the bar area but one man vs. twenty eager young women is tougher than it sounds!

I figure, "Hey ladies. Let's get toasted!"

I usually go to BB but a few months ago I had a weird issue with 2 chicas Yakaira and Julissa. Didn't want any more drama with those two and booked 5 days at FOD.Barba Negra don't want to lose any regular customers because certain chicas are playing up. I am sure a discreet word with management would suffice to ensure the two leave you alone in future.


I arrive and you walk up to the bar to get your room key, pay, ect. Immediately accosted by the chicas. Look, we are all there for the same reason but after a long plane ride early in the morning, I just want to get my room, shit, shower and shave.First time I went to Blackbeards was my first time across the Atlantic and first visit to the tropics. I had brought everything except the kitchen sink and could not speak a word of Spanish. I was shy and nervous. Stood waiting at the deserted reception for ages and nearly jumped out of my skin when a hand from behind fondled my crotch. Then I realised this was not like any hotel I had ever stayed in before and I was no longer in London suburbia (or as the Yanks say, "not in Kansas any more".

I still remember the culprit's name, Sandy. That was eight years ago and Blackbeards is a slicker outfit these days.

Update to yesterday. Intended to call in to FoD to try and clarify their new pricing policy for this board. My cab passed a chica walking in and we exchanged "Hola, mi amor"s. Sitting in the cab in the car park concentrating on counting out money to pay my driver and again nearly shit myself. (I am of a nervous disposition these days). There was a thump and scream as the same chica stuck her upper body through my wound-down window and started jabbering to grab my attention. It was like one of those slasher or zombie movies when someone appears out of nowhere. You were lucky. At least they waited until you were through the gate.

As it happened, I never got more than two metres through the gate. The volume of music from the bar was so deafening it would obviously make my ears bleed if I got any nearer so I stopped my cab before he left and I went home.

Now, flashback to two weeks earlier. (More flashbacks in this post than in a film noir).

I met a visitor from the UK at the airport and took him straight to Field of Dreams. He wanted to stay in Pto Pta not Sosua so this was my recommendation. I was already knew FoD was no longer an worthwhile option for ST, but some recent reports from guys I respect convinced me it was still a good choice for a stay.

The place was nearly deserted at 5 pm. About five chicas and we were the only men. Another five staff and civilians behind the bar (learned later they were parasitical members of the owner's family who do fuck all to help but just hang around eating, drinking and playing dembow at ear-splitting levels). Asked them to turn down the volume so we could hear to place a drinks order but was told they "were not allowed to".

Asked to see a room. The staff member who showed us the room shut the door behind us and warned my visitor against staying there. Told us in detail their version of everything that was wrong with the place, all ultimately the responsibility of the asshole owner and his vile family. As you might imagine, my visitor immediately crossed FoD off his list of possibles. It could have been up to a two week stay, too. We were told they did not have a single resident guest there.

Sat in the garden and two chicas joined us, uninvited. One rather plain one started fondling my visitor and tried to entice him for ST at US $80 (3520 pesos). I had to doublecheck she meant ST, not that I would have paid that for a week of her company.

In the past I have always tried to put in a good word for FoD on this and other boards. I was even accused of being a shill for the place by Barba Negra loyalists. The place has had its ups and downs, but now seems to have sunk to such a low point only a complete change of ownership can turn it around. Maybe a change of name too, as the one it has now is stained beyond repair.



That evening I lay in bed, and cannot sleep because of the blasting shitty music coming from the bar area. I look out my window to see not one fucking guest at the bar, it was a bunch of young Dominican guys, the bartender and chicas. WTF? Every night was the same shit. Blasting music, no guests. The guy running FOD apparently just uses the place as his own private disco\club. Not only was it loud and annoying but you feel like an outsider walking up to the bar to get a water or beer. It is unacceptable for this place to be promoting this type of environment.
This is it, exactly! Either this guy (Pedro) is so rich that he doesn't care, or he is running it as some tax-loss or money laundering racket, or he hasn't got a clue. I cannot see any gringos going there now and his Dominican pals won't spend any money.

Is it even worth it to start a thread on FOD?


I think it is a good idea. We have a thread on La Romana with only 110 posts in 12 years. I guess we will surpass that total here within a year easily.I was proved right there (this is the 116th post), but in the light of recent reviews there may be very few reports coming out of FoD for the foreseeable future.


Thanks Jay for the information. I was thinking about trying a few nights, but will not.

At the recommendation of other users I have copied my report here.

Hey guys,

I am new to this forum but not new to the DR so if this report is in the wrong place I apologize. I have been going to the DR twice a year for a while now. I usually go to BB but a few months ago I had a weird issue with 2 chicas Yakaira and Julissa. Didn't want any more drama with those two and booked 5 days at FOD.

What a fucking mistake!

I arrived with ease, its close to the airport so the taxi ride is pretty cheap. That was about the only positive. I arrive and you walk up to the bar to get your room key, pay, ect. Immediately accosted by the chicas. Look, we are all there for the same reason but after a long plane ride early in the morning, I just want to get my room, shit, shower and shave. Also FOD has a beautiful reception area that they don't use.

I get to my room which is just OK. It is directly across from the pool. I get myself together and head out to the bar area grab a beer and check out the view. I always hear guys argue about who has the best girls, FOD or BB. It is the same, there is literally no difference between the talent. Some big, some small, some fugly some hot. I was chilling and was approached by China. Nice little girl, had a quick session with her, it was OK but by the time our session was over the whole god damn room stank like a fish monger. I was kind of grossed out so that was it for day one.

Day two: Breakfast which was average. (BTW just a heads up BB food is way better and roughly the same price).

I take a super long ass walk to the beach, I had to cross the road which is terrifying, seriously be careful it is crazy.

When I get back the girls were out in full force. Nobody is really catching my eye. I decide to start smoking a cigar and drinking I did that, laid out by the pool and chilled. I took a nap and relaxed. Now night was upon us. I was fucking bored. The girls were boring, the place is isolated so you can't even walk around. I was like only 1 of 3 guys staying there.

That evening I lay in bed, and cannot sleep because of the blasting shitty music coming from the bar area. I look out my window to see not one fucking guest at the bar, it was a bunch of young Dominican guys, the bartender and chicas. WTF? Every night was the same shit. Blasting music, no guests. The guy running FOD apparently just uses the place as his own private disco\club. Not only was it loud and annoying but you feel like an outsider walking up to the bar to get a water or beer. It is unacceptable for this place to be promoting this type of environment.

Before I get flamed for being a pussy, this is not about feeling safe, its about relaxation which I did not have any of in the evenings.

Day three: Order my breakfast, and get hit with a massive bill for the previous night alcohol and food. This bill was flat out padded. It was way higher then what I expected. I turned to my friend (arrived the night before) and he said he had the same issue. I asked to see an itemized bill, she said that the computer can't do that now. Fuck it, I paid it.

Talent was better today. A little cutie with a massive amount of curly hair started flirting with me, her name was Ruby. I decided to have nooner with her. Not bad not great but she was pretty so there's that.

My buddy and I took a trip into Sosua. Obviously that was a good time.

Arrive back and that same cutie was there, I figured why not have a TLN.

Gentlemen, please pay attention to this part!

This little cutie (Ruby) comes to my room, does her customary shower, gets on the bed and we start going at it. I always feel weird about kissing the girls but she did use my Listerine to wash her mouth. We were going at it like some horny middle school students. She moves down for a pleasant BBBJ. She then sits up and leans over and says. I love you.

What the actual fuck? I ignore it, I turn over to reach for a rubber and she pushes my hand away and she says no. I laugh and grab the condom again. She says, no I want you, I need you, I love you. I want a baby. At this point, I am like a deer in headlights. I switch to my shitty Spanish.

From what I can make out she says. "I want your cum, I want your baby".

At this point I said. Fuck that, I get up and said "you can leave or we can use a condom" She says OK and uses the rubber.

As we go at it, she keeps putting her hand down there to try and slide of the condom. WTF. I am done, I can't finish.

I jump into the shower, she joins me and is trying to be awkwardly romantic and its just weird. I get ready for bed and told her she can go.

She says no, gets in my bed. I am like fuck it. I get it in and go to sleep. (keep in mind a habit I have is to keep all my shit locked in the safe and hide the key in the room) Worst night sleep ever, she basically cuddled me so much I could not get a good nights sleep. That morning, she tries again. I am like get the fuck out.

I take a nap to recover from this crazy.

Day four:

Ruby disappears (thank god). Last full day was actually pretty pleasant. There was a chica there that I knew from BB and we talked and joked, drank ect. It was weird cause I knew the girl for a few years, we have talked at length each time but I never had a session with her. Well today was the day. We went to my room and at first we kept giggling but then it got serious and it got awesome! She was great!

Day five I relax a bit and get ready to leave. As my taxi pulls up and I check out, crazy ass Ruby approaches me. She gives me a piece of paper with her phone number, facebook info, email ect. I laugh get into my taxi and get the hell out of there.

Overall, I would not return. Too much weird shit, the place has a vibe like it is there simply to take advantage of unsuspecting gringos. Black Beards was MUCH more relaxed and I feel more like I am on vacation. Let me put it to you this way.

Black Beards feels like it is run by an American\Canadian and FOD feels like it is run by a stone cold local Dominican.

This is only my opinion so take it for what its worth. I just wish I would have read something like this before I went.

Excellent post J Balanty, you provided some valuable and helpful info, but I must say you deserve the "Purple Heart" for staying 5 consecutive days at FOD. My initial stay was one night and I swore to never return, but my last trip I stopped thru for drinks and I saw at least 7 chicks I wanted to tap. Funny, but I have a friend who is very fond of the infamous "Ruby", he really holds her in Hi regard, but she did the exact same thing to lure him in, LOL. He didn't knock her up, but I guess it was effective enough to keep him running back (damn she must have numerous guys on her list). I'ts going to be fun explaining it to him. I had planned a 2 day stay at FOD in a few weeks, but I better keep it day to day, because things don't look to encouraging, LOL.

Thanks Jay. Me and my wingmen stopped going there for ST action. On our MANY trips to BB's we always stop in for something different. Last few visits we could see that the place is rapidly turning into a dump. I started this thread to allow fellow mongers to provide honest reports and yours below is credible and confirms my worst suspicions about this place. I haven't posted here in a while.

My advice: AVOID this dump and go anywhere else.Totally agree. I realize that members of this and other puta boards may represent only a small part of their potential clientele (though larger than the owners realize) but we must encourage our members to boycott Field of Dreams. The sooner it folds the sooner we might get some competent ownership in there.

The place has great potential to serve a percentage of mongers. A small percentage maybe, but enough to keep its (12?) rooms busy if properly run. It has had good spells as some members here can testify, but there is no chance of this present A-hole owner turning it around.

Of course a few mongers will still go there. Some actually enjoy hanging with Dominican lowlifes (and brag about it on here) and some like dembow and enjoy paying over the odds as it proves they are not "cheap". But not enough to keep the place going, even with the odd sucker from Playa Dorada.

On previous trips we had been told they had a reciprocal agreement with BB's to rent rooms ST to guests from the other hotel for 1000 DOP. That went out the window with the new management. None of the guests that were staying there were happy, and all thought that their bar bills were being padded. I'll being staying away until the place gets some new management.

I mean, the only tute to ever come right out and tell me that she loved me was from the Dominican Republic as well. Actually met her in Spain in one of the monger clubs over there. She had some cocaine and offered me some. I declined since I don't do drugs. So, she snorts some and then I wore that "culito" out LOL! Old girl was hollering up something too LOL! We get done, and she comes telling me that she loves me. I was like right (while rolling eyes). And that was that. She knew right then and there that I know the difference between a trick versus a simp ready to get played!

I'll being staying away until the place gets some new management.It needs new ownership. Not necessarily of the property (that's a minefield), but of the business. The present owner sticking in a new manager would do no good. If the guy (or gal) was conscientious they would go mad within a week.

One thing that the present owner will never do is to discourage Dominicans. Of course you cannot ban them from entering, it's "their country" (as they never tire of telling us), but you can arrange things so they don't feel comfortable (just as they made it uncomfortable for JayBalanty). Don't play their music, don't tune in to their TV channels, don't offer their food on the menu, etc.

Back in Dominican Billy's day they represented a tiny part of his clientele but a big part of his headaches. Wiping their asses on the towels was common, unflushed toilets, haggling over his (very reasonable) prices, unpaid bills, domestic screaming matches in the small hours, entering the kitchen and trying to cook their own food (of course ignoring all hygiene rules), threatening him with the police over trivial disputes, racially insulting any black North Americans or Haitians on the premises, etc, etc.

My former favorite bar on the Malecon has recently changed hands. The previous owner did not want Dominican customers. The new (European) owner seems to welcome them (presumably hoping to enlarge his customer base) and the bar has suffered all the consequences. Friends and relations hanging around filling chairs and tables without spending money, toilets fouled, music turned up, smoke blown across tables where people are eating, little kids running around screaming and knocking things over while their parents beam at them, etc. Service has plummeted and I see a new waitress every time I go there (which I have now stopped doing).

Is there a difference between who is in charge and who owns the place? Any possibility of a Canadian or Brit or German buying the place out and stitching it back together. Maybe the guy who owned Passions?

I can't see how FOD can continue to generate profits with these sorts of reviews rolling in.

(BTW- this is the first negative review of Ruby that I've ever seen! You never can predict Dominican behavior, huh?)

Thank you I was thinking about spending three days next weekend at FOD well nix that. Would have been my first trip to DR and would have ruined it. I guess it will be Antwerp instead.This is a very strange post. I assume you would not be coming all the way from Europe just for three days? Where would you be spending the rest of your trip?

And while you rightly rule out Field of Dreams, what about all the other places you could go? The most obvious alternative is Barba Negra, which is ideal for a first stay in the DR. Or if you want to be more adventurous and feel confident, you could stay in Sosua. Pleny of information here to get you started.

Well, the owner of the property, the owner of the business using the property, and the manager installed by the owner of the business could be three different persons, and sometimes have been. There could be further complications if the building was sub-leased to another person who then let it to the owner of the business. This has also happened at least once.

There has been speculation on the boards from the beginning as to who filled these various roles. Lots of guys have posted claiming inside knowledge. Often bullshit, and even if accurate the situation might have soon changed yet again as a result of financial pressures or the deliberate desire to muddy the waters for fiscal or legal reasons.


Maybe the guy who owned Passions?Well, he could contribute valuable experience on how to get closed down and end up in jail.



I can't see how FOD can continue to generate profits with these sorts of reviews rolling in.To be fair, the putaboards were just getting started when it was founded, so their posters were never a target market. And they have never been a major source of income since. The Dominican owners are probably unaware of their existence. They are aiming at flash Dominicans and tourists from Playa Dorada who don't have the time or knowledge to find pussy and think a session for US $80 is a bargain compared with their own countries. Those people don't read reviews.

Once guys have familiarized themselves with the content of this and other boards they know too much to be sucker targets.

And never underestimate the ability of Dominican businesses to limp along for years with very few customers.

Just spent a relaxing week at FOD and must say that I was pleased with most everything. Bit by bit:

First, the big negative, the music. I should have brought my father with me. He's been dead nearly 30 years, and the Dominican hip-hop blasting until well after midnight was loud enough to wake him. That said, on the third or fourth night there, I stumbled out of my room somewhere around 12:30 and registered a complaint with the man behind the bar. The music was never a problem again. (Note: I go to a lot of Springsteen concerts. I can handle loud music. This was exceptional.).

Second, the big positive. I'm an early riser and the place is deathly quiet before it springs into action at 8 am. The staff all shows up on time, the coffee is out within minutes, and there is a substantial team cleaning the place up. It is spotless. The rooms are well kept, the bed was comfortable, and there was plenty of hot water at substantial pressure. The staff was attentive and friendly.

I didn't go to the DR for the food. It neither thrilled nor killed.

The service from the girls was a bit mystifying. This was my first venture into Latin America and its culture. All my prior "hobbying" had been in Montreal (my hometown) or the FKKs in Germany and I've become quite used to extended love-making sessions where the vast majority of the girls like to receive as much pleasure as they give. I didn't find that to be the case here, quite the reverse actually. The girls I met (four of them) seemed to be primarily interested in getting me off and little else. Other than that, I had no complaints.

Someone posted either here or on another board that in going to FOD you will miss the "Sosua experience. " I went for peace and quiet, a little warmth, and the girls. I found them all.

Just spent a relaxing week at FOD and must say that I was pleased with most everything. Bit by bit:

First, the big negative, the music. I should have brought my father with me. He's been dead nearly 30 years, and the Dominican hip-hop blasting until well after midnight was loud enough to wake him. That said, on the third or fourth night there, I stumbled out of my room somewhere around 12:30 and registered a complaint with the man behind the bar. The music was never a problem again. (Note: I go to a lot of Springsteen concerts. I can handle loud music. This was exceptional.).

Second, the big positive. I'm an early riser and the place is deathly quiet before it springs into action at 8 am. The staff all shows up on time, the coffee is out within minutes, and there is a substantial team cleaning the place up. It is spotless. The rooms are well kept, the bed was comfortable, and there was plenty of hot water at substantial pressure. The staff was attentive and friendly.

I didn't go to the DR for the food. It neither thrilled nor killed.

Thanks. If you think that FOD lacked in the GFE then you will probably want to skip Blackbeards on any future visit. I want to visit some of the famed FKKs sometime in the future but I always get the impression from trip reports that the girls there are all business. I am surprised to read that the FKK ladies outdo the Field of Dreams ladies when it comes to the GFE.

Glad it worked out for you.Charles, I posted on another board, Chica specific, that I was looking for a "peaceful spot" and got a number of recommendations for FOD. All of the negative stuff that appeared here showed up just a couple of days before my departure and nearly scared me off.

Also, I went feeling that if the girls did nothing for me, I still ran little risk of freezing my ass off and slipping on never-ending ice and snow. A week away from all that would have done the trick all by itself, knowing that there'd be a luscious Quebecoise a phone call away on my return, a bargain with the Canadian dollar sliding 20% over the last year.

Each of my sessions set me back $40 US. (I did give a girl 1600 DOP and didn't get away with it. She knew the current rate increase and asked for another 200.) From my understanding, overnights were $75 and 24 hours were $100.

The place was not at all busy. Packed on Wednesday evening for the bikini contest. Most of the time there were only 3-4 guys staying there, perhaps twice that over the weekend. A reasonable number also passed through for a few hours at a time.

There's a term in Germany, "optikfick," which refers to girls who are gorgeous, but lacking on the service end.

It's always possible to spend some time in public areas getting to know a girl before taking her off to a room. That will generally give you a sense of what's to follow. Many girls will allow you to make out with them before going off, always a good sign. And you can always ask. Generally, you'll get better service from girls over the age of 25. Some guys avoid Romanian girls, who fill the clubs in large numbers, but I've had great sessions (and not so great) with Romanians. And just by hanging around and observing, it's not hard to spot the girls who go off with a guy only to return 10 minutes later.

If you liked Disneyworld when you were a kid, you'll like the FKKs.

What is it about the Romanians that make them so undesirable? Is it true that the Romanian girls lie and say they are Italian or French? What is the deal?

Yes, some Romanians do claim to be from elsewhere. I wouldn't say that the Romanian girls are undesirable as a rule, but there is some truth the the generalization that their service doesn't match that of the other girls. Again, I've had great sessions with Romanians, but they have also been the bulk of the bad ones.

What is it about the Romanians that make them so undesirable? Is it true that the Romanian girls lie and say they are Italian or French? What is the deal?Curious. I was once sitting in a Kino and a girl went by speaking in Italian with a guy. I caught up with her later thinking she is Italian and I speak it. She spoke it well. Evidently spent time there but told me she is from Romania. I had a great session with her later, chatting in Italian which sure created a bond. Romanian is a romance language (not Slavic) and it is easy for them to speak other Latinate language. Going back to the main theme, my first and only Romanian so far was a very good one. This was around Dusseldorf. I subsequently met a real Italian in a place close to Frankfurt. No good. I had a fabulous Russian instead.

Making my trip in a few weeks and I was curious about things there because I only stayed one night last time and some knuckleheads came thru and took all the chicas with them to their villa in town. I saw a few that I wanted so I had a chat with the guys and recommended they use Sosua next time. I didn't see my favorite waitress there so I'm guessing she has moved on. Well I'm going to shoot for 2 days at fod this time, LOL.

Thank you in advance.The website is still there like it always has been. It's www.fieldofdreamsadultresort.com. I was just there with a group in May and everything was great. Good chicas, food, and facilities. Our group sold the place out and a good time was had by all. We also stayed a few days at BB and all was great there too.

Just returned from a trip to the DR, 5 days at BB and 5 at FOD. I have an important announcement that needs to be passed on. For reservations to FOD contact Anita [Email address deleted by Admin]. Pedro is now the "owner" of FOD, and Jeffrey is out. In fact Pedro got a court order banning Jeffrey from the FOD property. However Jeffrey still has control of the FOD website. A new website is being worked on, so do not use the old FOD website. Anita is the English speaking Brit that used to tend bar. She is now working in the office at FOD. Also any day now, FOD will have some COLOMBIAN & Venezuela girls as well as Dominican. When this occurs, time spent with the girls will be ST50 US /2200 p and TLN 85 US /3800 p. I had a couple meetings with Pedro and he asked me to pass this on.

Jeffery was president of "Field of Dreams Adult Resort" but never had ownership of the real estate so essentially he owned nothing. He was paid to take the reservations and maintain the website therefore he ran around like he owned the place but in fact never owned squat.

I am curious about the whole quality of a business and Dominican ownership theory.

Charles Pooter

So during the resort's "good times" was it owned and operated by an American or a Dominican?Field of Dreams was built and operated by the recently deceased Dominican Billy (a Canadian). He had a loyal following, including yours truly, but he did not allow putas to offer their services on-site, so it was not then as it is now. It was an ideal place to stay and take chicas back to for the night. It was slightly upmarket from Blackbeards, with many affluent regulars who were golfers or boat-owners, plus the odd deadbeat like me. There were even occasional families, travelling salesmen or govt officials who would stay, plus short-time visitors from Playa Dorada, but nothing like as many of the latter category as Billy had planned on to be successful.

Billy had to keep a minimal staff and work himself or be on call 24/7 to break even and it got too much for him.

After Billy there were various Dominican operators, including the owner of Cristals, and they all had putas working there. There were brief good periods there after Billy but no-one could sustain them for long because none of them could resist the usual Dominican practices of over-charging, scamming, crap service and allowing their family and cronies to sponge off the place and interfere with the gringo guests.

A shame really, because it was so nearly a success. It offered an alternative to Blackbeards for a different sort of monger. If the owner/manager could have stayed off the sauce, and did not have a "witch" for a girlfriend, it could have made it.

I did not get into the pricing structure as the contest was about to start. By the way, even though their bikini contest is very disorganized it almost always offers up a bit of raunchiness and they always get a good crowd. This last contest one of the contestants gave one of the judges a blow job right in front of everybody. No photos or videos are allowed and they make it clear that if anybody takes pictures they will stop the show which they did once during the "festivities" on Wednesday, only to be resumed once the offender put his phone away.

Before leaving Sosua I hit the teacher again in the morning and settled up with her. She declined breakfast, so I just ate alone and then packed as I was heading to FOD for the weekend.

Biggins had rented a car so he gave me lift to FOD as he hadn't been there in quite a while and he wanted to check them out. He too had heard that they have declined and wanted to see for his self. My first impression upon entering the compound was that's not too bad looking. The office / reception area was also nice too and we warmly greeted by an older white lady who introduced herself as the office manager, Anita.

I was shown to my room, the Jacuzzi suite in the back corner. Strolling past the bar I noticed a few chicas, mostly fatties, but as it was early I wrongly figured that the better looking girls would arrive later. Initially the room looked fine, it's quite large with a king sized bed, sofa and few dressers. A large Jacuzzi sat in one corner with the toilet / shower opposite.

I just dropped my suitcases and headed to the bar with Biggins for a cold beer. On closer inspection not only were the girls fat, but most of them were easily in their late twenties or early thirties and none were even remotely attractive (to me any how). Biggins offered to take me back to Sosua, but I said I'll take one for the team and stick it out for at least one night. I should also mention that at this point I was the only customer there, later 4 other younger guys (in their late 20's) checked in.

After Biggins left I hung out at the bar for a while. A couple of the girls did drift over to say Hello,. I feigned that I was busy messaging someone on my phone and excused myself. I then went to my room to unpack. It was then that I noticed that there's no controller for the A / see (only an on / off. Fan speed switch mounted on the wall underneath it), that there's no closet to hang clothes in, there's no top sheet on the bed (only a grungy bed spread that I was later assured was laundered and clean), the safe was too small to even fit my iPad and that the shower head was broken; the water would just pour out as the water diffuser (sprayer) had been dislodged and never replaced. Later that night when I tried the Jacuzzi the water that came out of the tap was shit brown colored and stank. Rusty pipes? Cross cantimination from the septic system? I don't know. I'm not a plumber. Maybe if I had let the water run a bit it would have cleared up, but by then my desire for sitting in the Jacuzzi had already passed. Needless to say I didn't use the Jacuzzi there either.

Ok, so fast forward to about 7 pm. All of the girls who were supposed to be there were there and after seeing the talent I think Field of Dreams should be renamed to Field of Cellulite. The Chicas mostly very fat, some were cute, but huge; and mostly older too. There were a couple there who were slender / curvy, but most of them looked like they went back for seconds after they got hit with the fugly stick. Only two of the 20 or so girls came in my book to being close to a 7 with the average being 2-3. I did find one who arrived late and I took her right away, but needn't have worried as she said she only goes with white guys and I was the only one there. LOL. She was 28, had decent body with a nice rack. Kept her all night and she was fun.

The Baby Doll show was a joke. A few dressed up in some tattered outfits and went back to hanging by the bar with their phones. Loud music played all night and apparently the few locals who stopped in either drink for free or run a tab as I didn't see any of them pay. The owner's son showed up with a few friends, downed a few drinks and left after the son cleaned out the cash register. Per advice on the board I paid my bar and dinner tab (more on that later) that night. But they had no change so I had to go to my room safe and get close to the exact amount. By 9 pm the place was dead. And this on a weekend night.

Pics: Some of the herd; a "busy" night.

Over priced food and drinks: No detailed bill is provided, only a count of what was supposedly consumed and a total (no individual prices). Dinner and a few drinks were 2,600 pesos. I questioned the tab as I kept track of what the chica and I drank - 4 Rum & Cokes (2 each), 1 orange juice (for another girl), and one bottle of water (which I had with dinner). The tab showed 5 Rum & Cokes, 2 juices, the water and the food I ordered. I informed the bartender of what I really consumed and she began to argue with me (found out later she's the owner's niece). The chica I was with said something to the bartender and she "re-calculated" the tab to 2,300 pesos. Still expensive in my book. Then the bartender had the audacity to ask for a tip! And this was supposed to be the IFTC / guest discounted pricing too. I can only imagine how much they would have charge if was not a guest (maybe less, LOL).

It should also be noted that at no time did any of the wait staff (2 girls. Bartender and another one who mostly sat and played on her phone) actually do more then bring me my food from the kitchen and clear the table when I was done. When I or my chica wanted a drink we had to get up and go to the bar to get it. The same was also true for the couple of patrons who were sitting at tables.

Food quality: For dinner I ordered "Pasta Carbonara" and a side order of cheese sticks for an appetizer. 30 minutes later both the cheese sticks and pasta arrived. The cheese sticks weren't bad (basic frozen type and heated up), but the both the pasta and the garlic bread were barely edible; actually the bread was inedible. The bread was stale, hard as rock and tasted musty. The oil or butter they used must have been rancid. The pasta itself seemed to be mixture of some soggy old slop with some undercooked fresh made pasta added to it. The sauce was mediocre, the "bacon" (if that's what it was) was burnt and the cheese in the sauce tasted like they had added regular cheap white cheese to it (maybe they didn't have enough Parma-Reggiano, LOL, but think they just opened a jar of some cheap crap and poured it over the pasta). When I complained to the waitress about the food she just shrugged and walked off.

Breakfast for 2 with coffee and juice for girl 1300. Food again was mediocre at best. The chica ordered something that resembled hominy with eggs. It too wasn't bad, just very bland. The ham & cheese omelet I ordered was more like scrambled eggs with the ham & cheese added as an afterthought. The home fries were scorched on the outside and raw on the inside. Fortunately there was a bottle of not-so-hot hot sauce that came to the rescue of my "omelet".

I had planned to stay 2 nights, but after seeing the talent (or lack of it), the lousy service and the outrageous padded bar / food bill I opted to leave early and head back to Sosua. After breakfast had a chat with the chica and a couple of her friends. They all said place is steadily declining since Jeffrey left. The owner's son brings friends to drink and party for free. They also expect to have girls for free or only for a few hundred pesos. Although that usually only happens when no other paying customers around as they simply take the girls to a back room or dark corner back by room 10. The better looking girls have already left for greener pastures. When I asked the chica I was with why she was still there, she told me she's afraid to work the street in Sosua alone, but she's considering moving to another establishment with her somewhat cute friend.

Day 9 Continued in the Sosua ThreadI totally agree in all aspects of this report. This place is almost scary! Very few guests, quality of girls is <5 on average with a couple of exceptions (Ruby in particular! Food is not good and bar bills are padded. Rooms need renovation as well.

I can see how this place can turn into a big party. Girls are a bit more outgoing and naughty then at BB. E. g. Most don't wear underwear at night and have no problem showing off their breasts and pussy to potential clients.

My suggestion is to come here for an afternoon / evening. Grab some girls buy them drinks and have a little party. But don's stay or eat there.

Readers of my posts for the past three years will know that I have consistently denigrated Field of Dreams and advised guys not to go there. So in the interests of fairness I thought I would post my experience today.

Two American friends picked me up in Pto Pta and we visited first Blackbeards for brunch and afterwards Field of Dreams for drinks.

We hit Blackbeards about 2 pm. Two of us just had sandwiches. The third ordered some chicken concoction and was unable to eat it as there were uncooked areas. I guess it had come out of the freezer and was not sufficiently defrosted.

I counted about eight chicas and four or five guys. I would not have fucked any of the chicas for free, (they were all 3's to 6's), but they just ignored us and chatted among themselves.

One of my friends is in the DR every month, but the other, once a frequent visitor, had not come for five years, so he had not seen the refurbished Field of Dreams. (Incidentally, they have at last over-painted those revolting amateurish murals and the place looks much smarter as a result).

As soon as we reached the bar, a swarm of chicas lined up for our inspection, as they do at Cristal and the SD brothels. I do not care for this sort of "in your face" introduction, but at least they showed some sort of enthusiasm and made it easy for us to evaluate them, unlike the bored chicas of Barba Negra. They were nearly all young (18 to 23), slim, and pale- (or palish-) skinned. I counted 23, with maybe half-dozen each of 6's, 7's and 8's. Certainly the best-looking selection I have ever seen there under the various owners and as good as I have seen in ten years at Blackbeards. But no phat options for guys who like that, or dark-skinned options for guys with my taste.

When we arrived (about 4 pm) there were maybe half-dozen guys there. But just as we were leaving a large party of maybe 16 Afro-Americans arrived, much to the girls' excitement. I have no idea whether these guys were staying there or just dropped in, like us.

The price at Field of Dreams is US $90 for two hours with a chica, room included. I live here, so I have no interest in paying Blackbeards or Field of Dreams prices for dominicanas, when I could get pretty haitianas (who I prefer, anyway) for a third of the price. But I frequently read here of guys paying similar prices in Sosua (if you include the cabana). They might consider Field of Dreams for a surer thing than a club or street pick-up and a much nicer and safer environment. Field of Dreams is a 50 peso ride from Sosua by publico. They run 24/7, though some might not relish waiting on the deserted high road at night for a ride back to Sosua. I meant to ask the room prices, but got distracted, and forgot.

May have been a one-off, but only fair to post as, had it been the opposite way round re: food & chicas, I would have been only too eager to lambast Field of Dreams again.

How are the rooms? I was interested in staying at FOD and wanted to know about the experience. Also how do I get I touch with management to make a reservation?I believe you are the poster who had problems at Blackbeards? If so, this no doubt explains your interest in Field of Dreams?

I have dropped in briefly twice since my favorable report in June, and there was nothing like as many chicas on view. Maybe they imported extra girls knowing that large party of Afro-Americans was due?

They charged my companion 150 pesos for a small Presidente today. (The next place we went charged 125 for a grande).

I really would not recommend staying at Field of Dreams. But if you wish to try your luck a report would make interesting reading.

It is rare for people to get scammed at Blackbeards. If you got scammed there, I dread to think how you would cope at Field of Dreams.

The rooms are OK.

I would advise against making a booking, unless you are going on a public holiday or Super Bowl weekend. Out of the last three times I have been there, they have had zero guests staying twice, and four rooms occupied (out of 14?) the other time. By just turning up you should be able to negotiate a much better price. And what is the worst that could happen? Even if you could not agree a deal you simply move on to a hotel in Sosua or Puerto Plata, which is a smarter idea anyway.

If yes, are these all facing inner court?All the original rooms, yes. Not sure about the two newer rooms at the back where the bar originally was, but any windows there would let in too much heat as south-facing.

The basic rooms are not as large as at Blackbeards, but adequate for sleeping and fucking.

The main (only?) advantage of Field of Dreams over Blackbeards is that it is cheap and easy to get to Pto Pta centre and to Sosua and Cabarete. No need to spend time in your room.

When I stayed there (on one occasion for eleven straight weeks), there were no chicas on site. I just went out everyday and explored the North Coast. Best trip ever. Changing to onsite chicas was a bad move. Changing to Dominican management was a major disaster.

They have good bikini contests if you like something more revealing and perverted than Blackbeards. Sometimes they do fully naked lesbian shows, BJs and other stuff, but you never know for sure if they going to do it or not in advance.

If you don't get ripped off at least a little bit at FOD then you haven't really experienced the real FOD.

The bar originally occupied most of the south (back) side of the quadrangle.

How are the rooms? I was interested in staying at FOD and wanted to know about the experience. Also how do I get I touch with management to make a reservation?Just got back from a 12 day trip staying 3 days at FOD, the 4 days at BB, then 5 days at FOD due to being stuck because of the hurricane.

To answer your question, making a reservation at FOD contact: ranisabela@yahoo.com . Lineup at FOD was pretty good about 20-25 girls maximum evening. They start trickling in around 11 AM with a few more coming in every 2 hours. There are about a half dozen that stay there 24 hours though. If you want one in the middle of the night the security guard will go get a grip for you. Rooms including tax are about $55 US / day. They have some suites that will go up to $100. Rooms are basic with good AC and they have hot water and good water pressure unlike BB, but BB has improved their water pressure & hot water, but not like FOD. They had new towels and very good housekeeping. The first portion there, had about 8 guys staying there, then the 2nd part, only a buddy & I were there. They get a lot of walk-ins stopping by for drinks or girls. I had a great time this trip at both compounds and have no complaints about either. Advantage about FOD is it is closer to Sosua, but disadvantage is that it is isolated. Girls at FOD are more party girls and are easy going, so it is relaxing there. Also as mentioned the bikini contests can get wild as girls there can get naked any time. They can do lesbian like shows, use dildos, and my trip even stripped a guy, slapped a condom on & gave CBJ.

Good report, Husker Dude. We do not get many reports from FoD.

But can you confirm the chica prices for ST and TLN, plus any "extras" or variations?FOD. ST 2200 p, TLN 3800 p BB. ST1800 p, TLN 3400 p however since it's hard to get 100"s usually guys round up to nearest 500 p for good service, so FOD -2500 p and BB 2000 p, so BB chica prices are cheaper, but I find a little more GFE at FOD and the girls are not in such a hurry to get onto the next guy, as FOD usually only has a handful of guys there at a time. Most times they will just lay there and cuddle or rest in your rooms after finishing. Recommended FOD chicas by me include Ruby, tall Paola, Yahaira, Magda, Aida, Maria, Rosa, Davina, Leidy.

Great to have specific and current info on prices, sadly lacking in many reports for obvious reasons.


... since it's hard to get 100"s usually guys round up to nearest 500 p for good serviceI do not understand this comment. I only remember one occasion in the seven years I have lived here full-time when the bank had no 100's. When I insisted they gave me 50's and a dirty look instead.

If I rounded up from 300 to 500 with every purchase I would be broke by now. LOL.

Jj.I was at the FOD bikini contest yesterday, Ruby has gained weight since last year, she came to Sosua to session with me about a half dozen times last year until she started to annoy the fuck out of me, still a great romp in the sack though I'm sure. Lots of good looking girls, place was packed. Contest was very tame compared to last year. Last year contestants were giving judges BJ's right out in the open.

Ever since she had her child about 3 years ago I noticed she's put on a couple pounds every year. Last time I was in town February we were leaving as a group to go to sosua. She asked if she could come along. I declined telling her I was meeting one of my regulars. I spend a couple days with my girl in sosua and then contacted Magda from FOD to spend a couple days with me. If you want a top notch performer like Ruby I highly recommend Magda. Very energetic. We had a great time but has stuck to me like glue through WhatsApp ever since. Yes these girls can get very clingy.

Stayed for 3 days in Sosua (will post a very small report in that section) followed by a week at Lifestyle Tropical. I'd been to FOD before on 3 occasions. Always had fun with nice enough girls, well to some extent.

This time it was bad. Just bad!

First of all, the whole thing costs $90.

OK. Well, not OK, but. OK.

I grab a beer, my buddy -- Smirnoff Ice. 450 Pesos. Well, alright.

The line up is 2 to 6. I've never seen such uglies there before. That is not OK!

My first impulse was to get the fuck out of there, but it was our last night in the country, and the cab already cost us $50, RT.

Against my best judgement, decided to take one chubby English-speaking chica who kept telling me how much she loves to suck cock. I thought, OK, at least there is that. My second mistake.

Back in the room, no BBBJ. What? Seriously? OK, my bad that I didn't ask for BBBJ beforehand, but she's not a street girl. She works in a controlled environment. And she told me HOW MUCH SHE LOVES TO SUCK COCK!

OK, I'm not fighting, and the thing goes on. It goes on and her sucking skills are exactly zero. I stop her before I would lose the erection, put her down on her ass and start drilling.

2 minutes into that papi, give me your leche. . !

30 seconds later again oh, leche, papi. Keep quiet, I tell her.

I turn her around and start drilling from behind. Thank god, none of that awful smell. A silver fucking cloud.

A minute later give me your leche again!

At this point, I know I'll be lucky if I get any kind of release. I pull out, lay down, and tell her to jerk me off. The lazy puta works for maybe 1 minute and says oh, no leche. I say keep going. She gives me 2 more strokes and stops.

I asked what's the matter? I show her the watch. Only 45 minutes have elapsed.

Yes, she says, but he don't like me. No shit!

At this point, my erection is a distant history. I put my clothes on, tell her what I think she is, go to the bar and give the hostess a earful. She acts all concerned, so I tell her exactly what happened, along with a 2,000 peso bill for the drinks. Then, to add insult to injury, she returns 1,550 pesos with a smile ever so gentle.

Never fucking again!

And did I mention that the putas are UGLY?

P.S.

On the way back, the driver convinces us to stop by a club called Buen or Bohan or something. It's only 9:30, so just 3 or 4 girls upstairs, but I'm impressed with what I see, and the club looks kinda classy, too. But at this point, we're out of money (I'm reluctant to carry more money than I need in the DR), my buddy wants to sleep, and besides, we're leaving next morning, and we're not packed yet. Then to make things even worse, a 9 with a body to die for follows me downstairs and whispers sweet things into my ear. I'm asking about the price - $100 including the room on premises. Yes, pricey for the DR, but she's light years ahead of your average FOD puta. I'm kicking myself for wasting my time and money, take her phone number for future references, and leave.

What happened to the fucking FOD? A shame, really, I used to like it there.

It must be you. Everyone knows that it is definitely not the fault of the quality DR hookers. Or maybe you are not from Canada, the States, Germany, Holland, the U.K. or South America. Why do you naysayers keep trying to give our perfect paradise a bad rap? Maybe it is just not for you!

It is not only about the payment for services rendered. If you would have given her some gifts in the form of a cell phone, perfume, underwear, or a coffee maker in addition to said payment, you would have been guaranteed top notch service.


The inference that it is only guys that like thug girls and their "shyt" treatment who go back, is a common theme on this board, but still nonsense.

Mongers from all over the world find their way to this tiny perfect beach town and it's women, but it's obviously not for everyone!

But the guys that go there from Canada, the States, Germany, Holland, the U.K. and South America know a little bit about quality in hookers!

We all know this happens. Sometimes you have a great time with a jewel, with lots of chemistry; sometimes you get stuck with a lump of coal.

That said, this describes one experience. Were there any others? One time is a "snapshot" of the whole. More than once indicates a general problem.

While I haven't been to FOD in a few years, and have heard few good reports since it was taken over by Dominican management, I'd say its hard to judge based on just one time.

It always began with a reasonably good line up, though. This time, the line-up was not nearly up to the former FOD standards. I would say, it's hard to find a jewel when there isn't one in sight.

Having said that, I wasn't trying to judge, I just shared my own experience. It was an overwhelmingly bad experience from start to finish, hence the sarcasm. I'll wait for the next report and see if my experience was an isolated incident or not.

Quite honestly, though, I don't get the economics. $90ST? I would expect a bundle of hotness for this price in the DR.

Had a couple of hours to kill this evening (Saturday) so checked it out. Arrived around 9 pm. A soon as we arrived the chicas rushed to line up in front of us as they do in Cristal and did in the SD establishments when I visited there. I hate that so just ignored them, and all but a persistent couple thereafter ignored me, which was fair enough.

We all have different tastes but out of maybe 15 chicas I reckoned two 8's, four 7's, and the rest inferior including a couple of real eyesores. This is just superficial impressions so I have no idea of attitude or service. I rarely go there so I have no idea who are new. They were all new to me. No haitianas so that would rule it out for me even if the prices were more realistic.

Price is 4200 pesos for two hours including use of room. I did not ask about TLN or special services like anal and CIM.

Lousy value unless you are staying in a AI and have limited time to sneak out.

The chica I spoke to said none of the rooms were occupied with overnight guests.

My friend bought a hamburger for 400 pesos which he said was quite edible and he is a good judge of food.

I have been over the years, one of the few guys left that supported FOD, but no more because of all the rip offs I've seen and the final straw Pedro the manager refusing to pay Anita (the english woman who worked there the past 2 years) her fees for making bookings at FOD for him. She has been gone since around the first of the year and has returned to the DR. She continued bookings for FOD while in Europe for health reasons and surgery. Upon return Pedro refused to pay her saying all the guys made reservations through the site, not her. BS! I've stayed there over a dozen times over the past 6 years and am a member of another site that used to hold big parties there. We quit doing that a couple years ago. ST at FOD is high 2500 p where BB is 1800 p. Food is a lot more expensive at FOD. Over the years, I had heard a rumor that a guy got ripped off of $2000 from his safe. I just found out last year, it is no rumor, as I talked to the guy at BB. FOD depends on walk in business & they are ripping guys off. I've seen them charge as much as $200 US for room with ST. I think it is supposed to be $100, but I've seen madeline & Richie (Pedro's kids that run FOD) charge whatever they want, usually 120-150 US. Padding their bills are another story with several reports of bill padding. Recent times staying there, unless I bring a small group in, I'm the only guy sitting around with all the chicas staring at me. They have also discontinued their bikini contests.

I have been over the years, one of the few guys left that supported FOD, but no more because of all the rip offs I've seen and the final straw Pedro the manager refusing to pay Anita (the english woman who worked there the past 2 years) her fees for making bookings at FOD for him. She has been gone since around the first of the year and has returned to the DR. She continued bookings for FOD while in Europe for health reasons and surgery. Upon return Pedro refused to pay her saying all the guys made reservations through the site, not her. BS! I've stayed there over a dozen times over the past 6 years and am a member of another site that used to hold big parties there. We quit doing that a couple years ago. ST at FOD is high 2500 p where BB is 1800 p. Food is a lot more expensive at FOD. Over the years, I had heard a rumor that a guy got ripped off of $2000 from his safe. I just found out last year, it is no rumor, as I talked to the guy at BB. FOD depends on walk in business & they are ripping guys off. I've seen them charge as much as $200 US for room with ST. I think it is supposed to be $100, but I've seen madeline & Richie (Pedro's kids that run FOD) charge whatever they want, usually 120-150 US. Padding their bills are another story with several reports of bill padding. Recent times staying there, unless I bring a small group in, I'm the only guy sitting around with all the chicas staring at me. They have also discontinued their bikini contests. I am done with this place. I've discovered Medellin anyway which is way better, a first world country with 3rd world prices.Interesting report, if true then SOB like these need to be shuttered forever. So you have discovered Medellin, cool, now I read your story and others and have to reconsider why the hell I want to even try a visit here and why not just return to my playground in Medellin.

Thanks for the report and sharing your experiences.

First time there. Needed to exchange money, because I forgot to and it was late, bar said they would exchange, gave her $120, she said I only gave her $40. Just got done smashing a chica, went bought a cheeseburger, same chica begged for something too, this mofo ordered filet mignon! And afterwards the kitchen overcharged me. Spent the night there, hooked up with a chica very early in the morning, the managers are gone, so she claims the prices just went up, to the tune of 800 pesos! I drop in almost every trip just to get a laugh at the audacity of the people there, but also you'll see old friends, but get their whatsapp and go offsite.

Hired a driver named Rigo in Puerto Plata. In the afternoon went to Field of Dreams just outside of town. I was the only guy there at the time. Walked past the pool to the bar and ordered a beer for 150 pesos. The girls that we're lounging around all came up to the bar where I was and lined up for me. There was about 7 to 8 chicas ranging from a 5 to an 8 in looks. I told them I was going to enjoy my beer first and they kind of moved around. After sight seeing the chicas all quoted $90 USD. Well damn OK. Paid for my beer and rolled out.

Before Anita left, I used to call her before I headed over and she would give me a rundown on who was there and whether it was worth coming. I would never stay there overnight ever again! Paying NY Prices for horrible service.

Don't believe it as they just used an old at least 3-4 years ago newsletter & just put in a new contact #. They claim a 20% discount on chica prices if you book through the site. It will just bring them back in line with everyone else. Don't believe anything it says as the pics are old & they no longer have bikini contests, dress up nights, etc. , at least for the past 3 months or so. Like I said before, F FOD the rip off joint.

I cannot remember my review but I think it was a post replying to someone who wanted a one-night stay in Puerto Plata rather than Sosua. I would not recommend the place these days. They still included it although I said their food was crappy!

It is such a shame because the place has great potential. It would not take much to turn it round. Get rid of all the Dominican family spongers and parasites would be a good start. But Dominicans will not listen to gringos, even though gringos represent 90% off their potential income

I made one of my infrequent visits to Field of Dreams today with two North American experienced monger friends. It was mid-afternoon Tuesday so hardly peak hours. I counted 12 chicas available which is about the same as I saw on my last visit to Blackbeards mid-afternoon. I would say that the FoD chicas were at least as attractive as the Blackbeards average and the ones my friends hit on were very willing to chat and flirt after being bought a beer.

I was told there is an effort on to redecorate and tidy up the place and I could already see some evidence of this.

We did not eat there and I cannot comment on bar prices (as I snuck away and left my friends to settle the bill) or on chicas or room prices so this post would be pretty unhelpful except to report that I was given serious reason to think management is now finally aware that they have being following wrong policies for some years and are making an effort to turn things round. If so, it will take time, so I will cut them some slack.

I would suggest the first thing is to have a fixed "discount" price-list for rooms and chicas and those prices be no higher than Blackbeards. They should have an affordable two-hour room & chica package on offer to attract mongers from Sosua, with the advantage that Field of Dreams is much cheaper, quicker and easier to access from Sosua than is Blackbeards.

If they want to continue to charge higher prices to suckers from Playa Dorada and others who do not know better, that is fine with me, but they should have a second and more realistic price structure for members of this board and the other main monger board covering the North Coast. They would not need to see proof of board membership. The mere fact that someone asks for the "discounted, board member" price would prove that they are aware of realistic and current pricing whereas Playa Dorada visitors would not be, and would think FoD high prices are cheap compared with their home countries.

I would also suggest that not more than one member of staff should be employed from the same family and that locals who are not spending at the bar or the restaurant should be banned from entering. Music should be played at levels which permit conversation and should be the choice of patrons, not staff.

I would love to see it taken over by someone that would bring it back to where it was in it's heyday.I spoke with Pedro the current manager at FOD last week. He remains the boss in charge, but his kids are no longer in charge of day to day operations. Tim (former long time manager at BB) & a couple gringos have taken over the day to day operations of FOD. They are to improve the place and probably rename it in the near future & update the website. Prices will remain the same, but higher than BB, that is $50ST for people staying there as before. Outsiders coming in for ST will be charged $90 US for the chica & use of the room. In the past they have charged as much as 90-200 US, so they have regulated that price instead of charging whatever they feel like they can get to rip people off. , as well as padding bills. All this is supposed to be taken care of & Tim & his crew only will handle cash & they are supposed to get new register that prints a receipt, so you can actually see your bill. All these improvements are to be implemented according to Pedro.

I dropped by twice while I was there, I noticed there was work being done on most of the rooms, I guess the murals in the rooms are coming down. The ladies were some of the usual suspects with some nicer looking chicas sprinkled in with some vets. There was a Dominican, behind the bar however handling all transactions, who looked to be the guy in charge. He quoted us 100 dollars for a chica and 2 hours in a room. He never gave us a quote if we just got a room. No sign of Pedro, jenny or anyone else, but if time is involved I'm going to stay away.

Former BB manager Tim knows how to manage well, but others have tried at FOD before. They can play the padded price game with visitors from Playa Dorada, but in the long term, that will fail. They need to change the entire setup. BB does well because it has a better customer service philosophy than its Dominican-run competitors. Reasonable prices, good food, quality control among chicas, no late night blaring music, etc. Would be a good start.

The $100 price quoted already contradicts an earlier post quoting $90. (A $10 pad for the bartender?) Lakeside was there before the new regime was initiated. Not sure if it is yet. I imagine Tim is drawing up a list of recommendations and wants to be sure they are all accepted by the owner before committing.


Former BB manager Tim knows how to manage well, but others have tried at FOD before. There is no compelling reason why FoD should fail and plenty of reasons why it could succeed. Because others have failed does not mean that Tim will fail. He has more experience than all the previous managers put together. But he does need to get the owner on board for all his reforms. And to stay on board!


They can play the padded price game with visitors from Playa Dorada, but in the long term, that will fail. No reason not to pick low-hanging fruit. They can continue to "over-charge" those who do not know better, but they will need substantial custom from regular mongers (who do know better) paying competitive prices as well. The "sucker" trade alone is not large enough to keep the place viable.


BB does well because it has a better customer service philosophy than its Dominican-run competitors. Absolutely. Dominicans have as much clue about customer-service as they have about telling the truth or punctuality.


... quality control among chicas, no late night blaring music, etc. The music definitely needs controlling, and not only late at night.

Not sure what you mean about "quality control among chicas". If you mean the physical appearance of chicas then I think they are already at least up to Blackbeards standards. We all have different tastes. I remember a spell a few years back when Blackbeards favored "thick" chicas. There were slim pickings for flaca-lovers like myself.

But if you are referring to the quality of service given by the chicas in the room, I have no idea. It is eleven years since I last rented an FoD chica. (When you live here, paying gringo brothel prices is crazy). It is hard to pro-actively monitor the service which the chicas give in the room, without having cameras monitoring, and I do not think many guys would be happy with that. All they can do is to cease to employ chicas who get bad reports too often. There are plenty of reports of disappointing service from Blackbeards chicas as well, but the management do not know how much is the customer's fault. A good twenty percent of mongers are total assholes (bullies, racists, drunks, scammers, lack personal hygiene, or whatever). But if two or three guys diss the same chica then, yes, she is probably a bad apple. I think experienced mongers reckon on a 20-60-20 percentage (20% poor experience, 60 percent OK experience, 20% above average experience and will take again).

I think we are in general agreement. As you say, FOD has so many things going for it. (Location, location, location and good physical facilities). Tim is very well qualified, but my skepticism is based on so many previous unsuccessful attempts to make FOD a high quality venue, often by non-Dominican manager-empoyees. BB's owner, John, started with a good business model, so Tim had a good situation to work with. As you well know, since the "Dominican Billy" days, FOD has had a string of attempts at '"rebirth" but has managed to "snatch defeat from the jaws of victory" each time. As you say, Tim needs the Dominican management to back him totally, so he can change things from the ground up. No nepotism, etc. If anyone can do it, its Tim.

-- Like you, I confess that its been a few years since I last had a chica at FOD. When I was there, the girls weren't bad, but I heard of no one to take a complaint to, or assist with special requests, etc, as at BB. One had to do it individually with the girls (my Spanish allowed me to do so, but that may not be the case for others). The only other person on site was the bartender. Maybe Tim will appoint a "mama-san" for that role.

-- "Low hanging fruit" from the AI resorts can only go so far, but is too sporadic, and is unlikely to maintain the volume of business to be successful. "Hourly rentals" can have jacked up rates, but the longer-stay monger trade, generating revenue from the bar / restaurant, as BB does, needs a quality product at reasonable rates to generate business. (I know I am "preaching to the choir" here).

-- A very Happy and Healthy New Year to you, sir.

Lots of great information here. I am staying at an AI. In Playa Dorado with my wife in a couple weeks. She hates sex and goes to bed early so I figured I'the head over to Fod a few times while I'm there. I have a few questions about the chicas. I want BBBJ, is this standard, extra or not offered? Is the Chica out of there after I nut or do you get MSOG? I like spinners, are there likely to be any?

This will be my first time mongering outside US. I have been going to AMPS for years and can't wait for something different. Any advice from the vets would be great. I look forward to giving a full report on Fod when I return.

There are usually spinners there as well as big girls. , big mixture. For outsiders you usually pay the bar everything including fee for chica, but you can tip for more, YMMV.

If you pay my transport by motocycle taxi ($3), and buy me one of their expensive Coca Colas, I would be happy to meet you there, or indeed at your hotel to walk over there with you, and help you negotiate.

Yes, there are spinners and you should have no problem with specifying BBBJ.

You will have read that none of us would normally recommend Field of Dreams as good value, but in your situation it is the best option. If you only know US prices you will not be repelled and you will have no expensive private taxis to pay for.

UPDATE: Just realized that you are proposing to go late at night after your wife has gone to bed. In this case I would want to stiff you for a return trip by taxi ($8). I do not fancy riding motocycles in that area late at night (assuming I could even find one).

Another night, if we are still on speaking terms after our first meeting, I could take you to a Haitian bar in Munoz, the village behind Field of Dreams. That would be slumming it at the lowest level, as Tempoecorte will confirm.

If you are interested in my offer, get, and remain, in touch by PM. It will be no good springing it on me at the last minute. I do have my own life to lead here, pathetic as it is.

FOD is filled with ugly girls. Take a ride to Sosua. Meet plenty of girls, negotiate, take them to cabanas to which they will guide you and have fun all night. Or hire a taxi to take you but go to Sosua where you will find plenty of attractive girls. No need to worry about transportation back. On the main road plenty of options including motos. Quite safe.

If you want to go out every night book a separate room in Sosua hotels. BBBJ is quite common. If you compensate enough girls will stay as long as you want them. This is a business deal. Like anything some are real friendly and will do anything.

Do use protection because you definitely do not want to infect your wife.

As stated in another post, BBBJ tends to be standard, though its always best to have a mutual understanding before hitting the room. She really has no reason to stay after the act, but if you want her to stay awhile, you can convey that, and offer a small tip. No word on your Spanish, but if you don't meet with Sir Charles, consider learning a bit before your trip. Good to get some basic grammar down, though the words you may need may not be in the phrase book. For FOD, consider this. ("Quiero una chupada sin condon. "(Quiero pronounced Kyero.) Meaning: "I want a BJ without a condom. " And, "Quedate un rato mas largo. " Q pronounced like a K. Meaning is "Stay a while longer. " Take care, enjoy, and post a report after your trip.

Stopped by a couple times last week. The resort FOD has a new name Oasis. The new website is www.oasisadultresort.com. Pedro remains the boss at Oasis. His kids Richie & Madeline still work there but not in management positions, just workers and do not touch any $ as they were responsible for almost of the stuff prior. (ripoffs) Jenny was taking the $ while I was there. It was just brief stops for me & I did not partake any chicas. It is $90 US or equivalent for chica & room ST. If you stay there chicas are $50 US or equiv. ST. Tim from BB is there, but working in the background on the website & menu. He lives on site in the dungeon room. Anita, the english lady is back working reservations and communications. They have repainted most everything and restained the woodwork everywhere. So it does appear to be nicer. Minifridges for each room were on order & are probably in now. They have new tables and chairs provided by Presidente. They will hopefully replace stuff like mattresses, pillows, etc in the near future. It appears they are working hard and Pedro is doing most of the work from what I hear. They have paved the driveway with new asphalt too. The chicas on site were pretty good compared to the past. Only a couple cows and lots of new faces, spinners too. They did have a bikini contest around 5 PM on Wednesday. Things maybe looking up. We shall see.

Stopped by a couple times last week ...things maybe looking up. We shall see.Thanks HD. A good overview.

I was there mid-Thursday afternoon a week ago (so really off-peak hours). There were eight chicas available of whom six were attractive. (No haitianas, boooooo!)

I am not sure what market they are aiming at. They do not need to tart the place up for visitors from Playa Dorada as that is a captive market with no other serious options.

Refurbishments are only worthwhile for overnight guests and they were badly needed as the place was getting run-down. But where will they get those overnight guests from? It would be a much more economic option for guys like Vannum (see the recent posts under Oxygen Retreat), but clients like that are few and far between. If things run smoothly, they will gradually build a following among such more affluent mongers, but can they stick it out for the two / three years that will take?

$50 for ST is not wildly unreasonable. The old Passions flourished with those sort of prices. But another $40 for ST room use is a killer (except for sneakaways from Playa Dorada). No-one is going to visit from Sosua at those prices.

Are we going to change this thread title to Oasis, or give it a few months to see if the new name lasts? If it were new management, I would suggest start a new thread, but as it is the same guy I am not totally confident the leopard will change his spots.

As reported, Tim Bryant, who has held various supervisory positions at Blackbeards throughout most of the last decade, was invited to advise Pedro, the owner of Field of Dreams and submit proposals for a rethink of their policy and practices to make the place more popular and profitable.

Tim has just told me that, after two months of effort, he has now abandoned the attempt, as Pedro was not willing to adopt most of Tim's proposals and has indeed already embarked on his own plan for revamping the place.

The name has been changed to Oasis Adult Resort and there seems to be an attempt to appeal to upmarket clientele rather than try to compete on price. You can judge this for yourself from their new website, which apparently owes little to the one Tim was working on as part on an integrated new business plan and corporate image.

www.oasisadultresort.com

The new website lists the room prices, which are rather expensive once 18% ITBIS tax has been added to the prices shown. It says nothing, as yet, about bar and restaurant prices and gives no hard information about the chicas on offer and their pricing structure, though hopefully that can be ascertained by communicating with the resort.

One relatively small section of the market where Field of Dreams held all the aces was guys from Playa Dorada slipping away from their partners or families for "quickies". It was hoping to profit from this catchment area that inspired the late Dominican Billy to build Field of Dreams in the first place, only to find that, having built it, they did not come (not in sufficient numbers to make the place profitable, anyway). One of the deterrents was the opposition of the Playa Dorada owners association, to whom Dominican Billy had to be very diplomatic (hardly his strong suit!) Maybe Pedro has the same issue in mind as there is no indication on his new website that rooms will be available for ST sex.

Tim told me that his frustrations included:

-- failure to convince Pedro to let go certain family members who had a history of offending or neglecting customers.

-- non-competitive pricing policy.

-- extreme reluctance of Pedro's chosen web designer to co-operate with Tim.

-- failure of Pedro to read and discuss with him the regular daily reports which Tim wrote (I presume these included customer feedback).

-- failure to secure the return of Nico as manager.

As already reported by Husker Dude, Pedro has already embarked on an extensive physical refurbishment of the place, which can only be a good thing. My own, admittedly very infrequent, drop-ins (and mostly during off-peak hours) have given me the impression that the chicas on offer are well up to scratch (lookswise). At least as attractive as those on offer at Blackbeards, though how they perform and behave in the rooms I have no idea.

But none of the physical attractions of the place will suffice if they do not get the customer service aspects right. Only time will answer that one, but the way the website has been released before it has been carefully proof-read is not a good omen.

I wish them luck but at those prices none of my friends will be going there. There is a niche market for the "money no object" monger (as some recent posts on this board show) but whether that market is large enough to support Oasis remains to be seen.

Thanks for the update Charles Pooter. I didn't think Tim would last long at Oasis. Tim was just used a an advisor, not a manager like I had thought. Also talked to Nico at BB, & I knew he would not return to FOD / Oasis, been there done that, much more stable job at BB for him. They can't put anything on the website about sex, as they don't at BB either. They would get busted immediately if they did. Hopefully they will find success, as I said we will see. They are putting in the effort that we have not seen before to upgrade the place.

They would get busted immediately if they did.Of course not blatantly, but most of such places are able to word things in a way which have meanings to mongers without giving offence to "civilian" enquirers. Maybe the references to "female companions" will be sufficient to prompt guys to write to the "resort" and inquire.

One minor interesting point is that they did mention that you could bring in your own "female companion", which is something Blackbeards do not encourage, although they certainly do not forbid it. When Dominican Billy founded and ran Field of Dreams for a few years there were no house chicas on site and he banned working girls from hanging there to solicit clients. (Apart from the occasional one who crept in under the guise of friend of his esposa, Wanda). This was mainly Billy being careful not to offend the Playa Dorada management, but he also wanted to avoid the hassle of having full-time working girls onsite with possible problems of drugs, fights, theft, their chulos, etc, etc.

That model suited me, and many other of his regulars, as we always preferred to find our own chicas "free-range". He would have been successful had his alcoholism, and resultant outbursts of foul temper, his inability to speak adequate Spanish, and his unfortunate choice of helpmate, not caused a continuous leakage of his loyal clientele. I wonder, if Oasis runs into trouble as a brothel (which is in effect what it is), it could survive on that model instead?

I live in Puerto Plata and there is no chica-friendly hotel for gringos I can recommend in the city. Just all-inclusives (not chica friendly) or Dominican-standard commercial hotels (which are adequate for ST but not where anyone would choose to spend their holiday). The camaraderie among the regulars at Billy's Field of Dreams was great. Mostly mature, sensible guys who understood the scene and how to carry themselves in public.

Playboy vacation and some others have no problems.As I explained in my post below, the FoD / Oasis location has a special problem in that it is immediately opposite Playa Dorada, where the owner's association carries quite a bit of political clout. They do not want to deter families by having it generally known there is a brothel on the doorstep.

But I also suggested the new Oasis website might need to be a little more "suggestive" to attract male customers. It is a delicate balancing act but not impossible.

A year gone by and no-one has reported from Oasis. I went there a couple of months ago and was told they did not have a single resident guest.

Two friends dropped in yesterday and reported that the pool was drained and the bar area partially dug up because of drainage problems. With all their changes and various problems over the years I do not remember drainage being an issue, and it has not been particularly rainy lately. They had a refurbish a year ago so maybe they inadvertently changed something to cause this new problem.

When will they ever get that place right?

No idea how that place stays open. I have been through there maybe 20 times and have probably only seen 2 mongers in all these years.

When will they ever get that place right?A few friends of mine came to Sosua for vacation a couple weeks ago, they have been visiting FOD for years. These guys will go there and create their own party buying bottles and throwing money around etc. They reported to me that there are new owners, a couple of brothers from New York. They said there were more chicas than the last time they went six months ago about 20 girls. I did not ask about the quality of the girls because quite frankly they always pick the biggest and ugliest girls in a place and they can afford to have the best. The one positive I took out of what they had to say is that Pedro's kids are gone and his thieving ex girlfriend is gone so that is a great start.

I wonder if they have a bikini contest.Indeed they do. The visit I referred to, a couple months ago, the bar area was packed when I entered, about 20 AA guys and 20 chicas. Turned out a bikini contest had just ended. Next time I looked up from my cuba libre the place had cleared like magic. I would rate the average quality of the chicas as about the same as Blackbeards, so not worth the extra you would pay there. The place only serves a useful purpose for men slipping away from their families or SOs in Playa Dorada or Costa Dorada for a couple of hours. Any other scenario, better value can be found elsewhere.

Still, let's give the new owners a chance to turn it round. Getting rid of Pedro's family and hangers-on is a great start.

Anyone know how we can change the thread title to Oasis Adult Resort?

I wonder if they have a bikini contest.I just recently returned from a trip to the DR & a group of us stopped by Oasis at the end of Jan. For the bikini contest. It is Wednesdays at 5 PM. There was probably about 20-30 guys there and about 20 chicas. The english lady I know, Anita is back working the front desk. Like Manizales911 stated, a couple East Coast guys are managing the place from the States. They come in every couple weeks. Maria the former daytime bartender is the manager on site. Yes, all Pedro's relatives are long gone. Anyway the chica quality varied greatly. Only a handful doable to me. I stayed at Blackbeards & the talent there was far superior to Oasis chicas. Bikini contest was just normal, but a couple judges were tipping 20" & I even saw a Benjamin. LOL Not my scene. We had a drink & went on our way. I believe all the guests were just that, no one staying there. Anita told me a lot of stuff went missing when Pedro left & they are trying to replace everything & make improvements. I wish them luck, as I want to see the place succeed, but how can one do it from afar? I saw on youtube a few videos of their big Super Bowl party where they had a group playing, but looked sparse.

I forgot to add that the price for a short time room and chica was 5000 pesos, expensive for us experienced mongers but for a guy staying in Playa Dorada con familia that just wants to wet his willie it's not a bad deal I guess.

Me and my friends went to FOD (now called Oasis Adult Resort). This place was far from any "resort". We got there at like 8 pm on a Tuesday. Asked the dude if the bar was open, he said yes. We were the only ones there. It seemed like it was dead. It was quite when we entered. Then the bartender started to play music. Girls come and line up. There was about 7 girls there. Only 2 were really hot / fuckable for my taste and my buddies. We were just sipping on our drinks, one chica goes "Don't you want freaky freaky" LOL and I'm like maybe later. Soon after I see this one hot chica come out in a black dress. Say hola and call her over. Her name was Emily. We talk and shit and I ask how much for the whole night. She says 200 USD. I say I only have pesos. She says 7000 pesos. I say ah okay, maybe another time then. She says you can do it here for 2 hours for 5000 pesos. I'm like no I got a villa in Sosua, want to go there. I get her number and that's that. My buddies were also quoted the same price by the girls. Emily gave me her Whatsapp, but one girl did not stating there was a camera, and they were not allowed to give their numbers. Okay. We left and went to Kviar in Costa Dorada. The pool wasn't as big as Blackbeards, there was no table to sit and eat, the lighting was little and thus the place looked very dark. It seemed like no no stayed there.

Me and my friends went to FOD (now called Oasis Adult Resort) ... there was no table to sit and eat ... It seemed like no-one stayed there.Thanks for reporting, because we hear so little from there. Your report sounds about right with a couple of corrections (see below). The main thing you got right is the prices, which is why no informed monger would go there to fuck. There are always better deals elsewhere. Last time I was there, the receptionist told me they had no staying guests.

This place was far from any "resort"

Quite the opposite. It is bang opposite Playa Dorada, the second biggest resort complex in the DR (after Punta Cana). That was the original reason for Field of Dreams' creation by the late Dominican Billy, to service vacationers slipping away from their families for a quicky. He got little of that market and successive new regimes have done no better.

... there was no table to sit and eat

There is a pleasant eating area alongside the pool under a timber roof, with six widely-spaced tables, similar to the one at Blackbeards. You guys must have been really pissed by the time you visited if you could not see that. Maybe the lights were out if no guests were around, but they would soon switch them on if you wanted to eat.

When he pulled up to the lot, I was not getting any "resort" like feel / vibe. But I guess that's to be somewhat expected, this isn't Lifestyle LOL. I should not have taken it literally either. Distance wise, yea its like you said, its right near Playa Dorada, it took us make less than 10 min to drive to Kviar. So distance wise yes its close to the resorts.

There website leaves a lot to be desired. Not a lot of info.Oasis was originally Field of Dreams, created by the late Dominican Biily as a place for men "trapped" inside Playa Dorada with their families or golfing buddles. So they could pop over the road for a quicky.

He soon found that there was tremendous hostility from the politically influential landlords association of Playa Dorada and was forced to keep a very low profile. The new owners of Oasis have managed to steal a few more yards by, for example, proclaiming it as an "Adult Hotel" on the roadside wall, but still have to be very discreet. They could not, for example, quote chica prices for sex on their website.

Thanks for the local insight as to why a lack of info. Do they have a restaurant? Night life?Yes, they have a restaurant. Opinions vary, and cooks come and go, but generally reports have not been favorable. I have only eaten there twice. The first time was unpalatable, the second inedible, but some have praised meals there.

Not much in the way of night life. You will need to go out to find that. Kviar disco and casino is a few minutes away. The one (only?) advantage of Oasis over Blackbeards is that Oasis is located directly on the highway between Puerto Plata (10 minutes) and Sosua (20 minutes), and it is very cheap and easy to get to and from either town by frequent public transport, though if setting out after dark you may wish to take a cab for security reasons. Blackbeards is in the middle of nowhere and you will be reliant on the notorious Costambar taxi mafia (unless you can get Uber to work for you, and there are conflicting reports on this).
