STV Super Specials
What do these rates mean?

* STV Super Specials are STV's usual SUPER Discounted Special rates, GENUINELY and STRICTLY ONLY available for TRAVEL INDUSTRY Employees resident globally, and are classified as an Employee Benefit. (Available to Airline, Travel Agent, Tour Operator, ATC & Airport Handling Agent Employees)

* You must be a Travel Industry Employee and you must be registered with STV (Free) to be able to book our STV Super Special rates.

* Minimum one Travel Industry Employee per room. You are required to present your I.D. / proof of employment on check-in.

* There is no limit to the number of bookings per year you can book (unless stated otherwise)

* Friends and Family cannot book STV Super Special Rates. They can accompany you but must stay in the same room as you (some hotels permit an extra room for Friends & Family and if so this will be stated on the hotel page, but you must always be included in the booking and be staying at the hotel).

* PAYMENT & CANCELLATION: With STV Super Special rates you only need to pay a very small refundable deposit within 14 days of making your booking, or right away if travelling short notice, and the main balance of the booking is paid direct to the hotel, usually on check-in. It is FREE to cancel or amend dates for your booking, often right up to and including the day of check-in, making these rates great for standby travelers (see each hotels payment & cancellation terms). When you make a booking request with STV Super Special rates and it is confirmed, you do not need to go ahead with the booking and can cancel immediately without paying a deposit if you wish.

* Remember STV Super Special Rates are only available for Airline & Travel Industry Employees as an employee benefit and are the lowest rates you will ever find.


* True Airline & Travel Industry Employee rates are known as ON REQUEST. This means you choose your hotel and Super Special rate and submit your booking request through our website and you will receive a response back from the hotel as soon as possible. Because the rate is so highly discounted, the hotel 1st needs to check if they have enough spare rooms to agree to let you pay these exclusive Travel Industry Employee rates. The hotels will often reply to you the same day but be prepared to wait up to 24-48 hours ~ It's worth it!

* BEWARE of other Interline/Agency companies telling you they offer Genuine Airline & Travel Industry Employee rates with 'immediate confirmation'! This is simply not true, and you are being misled. Hotels need to manually check their availability for Genuine Travel Industry employee rates and this can take 1-2 days. This is why they are known as ON REQUEST rates.

* BEWARE. If other companies tell you your Friends and Family can use the same rates as you unaccompanied, you know they are not genuine Travel Industry Rates! No hotels allow Friends & Families to book genuine Airline & Travel Agency Employee rates unaccompanied, so they are simply selling you rates that are also available to the general public through other channels.

STV have different rates available to Friends and Family to enjoy unaccompanied, they are called STV Direct rates. Because we source such rates in bulk and are the only truly global client and leading company selling holidays to Airline and Travel Agency Employees and their Friends and Family (we have served travel industry employees resident in over 200 countries ~ almost every single country on the planet), we always have the lowest STV Direct rates available anywhere. See STV Direct for these great deals for you and your Family.

VERY Special Rates for Travel Industry Staff

HODELPA Centro Plaza is surrounded by parks, churches and museums, and a business district in the attractive city of Santiago de los Caballeros. 

Christopher Columbus named the city after the 30 Spanish aristocrats who founded the city in 1495 and formed the original community. Santiago was traditionally the country’s main agricultural hub – and even today, Santiago is still the first place cigar aficionados should visit. The tradition of fine cigars remains strong, with most of the larger cigar plantations and factories located in the area. The Dominican Republic’s second largest city, Santiago has evolved into a modern, cosmopolitan centre for culture, industry and services.

Top things to do in Santiago and surroundings

Originally founded in an area known as Jacagua, some seven kilometres from its present sight, Santiago′s history plays a significant role in the country′s past. Horse drawn carriages are ideal for exploring the city′s architectural wonders - both colonial and modern.

Places of interest include the “Plaza de la Cultura” (Cultural Plaza) and the Cathedral de Santiago Apóstol (Santiago Apostle Cathedral) built from 1868 to 1895 in neo-classic style and adorned with magnificent stained glass by Dominican artist Rincón Mora.

For a complete change of pace, the crisp air and alpine vegetation of the country's central mountain range is every bit as enthralling as the beaches. Two inland cities, Constanza and Jarabacoa glitter in their mountain setting. Framed against intensely blue skies, they offer a cooling respite from the coastal heat, and an awesome visual panorama. Easily reached by road from the North and South, they lie at the foot of majestic Pico Duarte, the Caribbean's highest point and a favourite of mountain climbers.

Cibao’s Grand Theatre: The Grand Theatre holds shows and presentations by local and international artists.

Our beautiful sunsets: Mother Nature is responsible for one of Santiago’s greatest spectacles. The best spots to catch a magnificent sunset are The War of Restoration Heroes Monument and Imbert Park.

Tomás Morel’s Folk Art Museum: Here you’ll be able to admire numerous items related to Dominican folklore and the everyday lifestyle in Santiago from the colonial period through to the 1960’s. It holds a wonderful collection of “pig masks” in representation of the city’s carnival.

Model Market: This commercial centre is located on Del Sol Street. You’ll find numerous handcrafted items made with typical materials.
