  • Haddox-Tarnow-Fagan Family Vacation May 2014

    "Up until now I have never wrote a review, so I will do my best to articulate our experience at the Villa. First I will start by saying the staff at this Villa is by far the best I have ever encountered. I surely would use all of the characters in this review to go on and on about them! Julio does a great job of translating and keeping the grounds in pristine condition and his wife, Mercy, is quite possibly the nicest lady I have had the pleasure to meet..... and the woman can COOK!!! Everything that she prepared for us was delicious. We had 2 people in our group with food allergies and restrictions and 1 that is a picky eater but she was able to work within those limitations and create some amazing dishes! We did not book our excursions through Gus. We did not care for him at all and in fact, we were quite taken aback by his cocky attitude and pushy nature. Not only did he show up an hour before his scheduled time, but was quite adamant that we should make our plans right there, without our husbands (they were out walking the beach and touring the bars killing time until Gus was scheduled to come), but upon their return, Gus wanted us to immediately pick our excursions without opportunity to discuss it.... this clearly did not sit well with our group! So, not a fan of Gus or his personality. We did find another tour guide at a local restaurant/bar, and we ended up having a great time for the week touring different things. My biggest suggestion when you rent this location..... EAT AT THE VILLA!!!! first and foremost, no food that we had, including the food down town Puerta Plata, even came close to Mercy's cooking! 2ndly, I got food poisoning from Chris and Maddy's (bad fish! gamble you take traveling off season I guess) and 3rdly, the local Mexican taco joint on the beach charged us 25% tax.... YES TWENTY-FIVE you read that correctly! Total rip off and the food was NOT good at all. About the most enjoyable meal that we had outside the villa was the Italian restaurant on the beach, they had decent pizza, but nothing like our home of Chicago ha! I would choose Mercy's cooking any day over anything offered outside the house. Finally, Mercy was an angel during my food poisoning. The others went on the scheduled excursion and she stayed with me and made a home remedy and checked on me very frequently and did her best to keep me hydrated and cool. We would definitely return and tell our friends. Great place!"

  • US Golfer/Fishing

    "I was fortunate to find this listing and enjoyed several weeks at the property. Every aspect of the stay was great. Clean, Safe, wonderful penthouse with great views and plenty of room and great staff. The fitness center was conveniently located almost directly across from the building, pools, grills, access to all the other amenities at Casa De Campo and more. There was always a nice breeze coming up from the river. In addition, the owner was easy to communicate with and went above and beyond to be sure we not only enjoyed the penthouse but also everything else offered at this great resort in the beautiful Dominican Republic including great fishing, golf, entertainment and restaurants."

  • Great place to feel home...away from home!

    "I just returned from Punta Cana, a place I have visited many many times in the last 30 years! On this particular trip, (3 weeks) I spent the first week on my own, just relaxing. I needed a very safe place to be and Cap Cana offers just that. The condo is well located, on the canal, with view of gorgeous boats, promenade "sympathique" and beautiful grounds. 3 minute walk to swimming pools and beach. I highly recommend renting a car if you want to go around - to play golf, go to the casino, do grocery or visit some places. The condo offers all you need to have a pleasant stay. The very large terrace is particularly inviting! The PRET team, on behalf of the owner, is always there to help you and with a smile too! Thank you Francisco and Bolivar! The concierge team of Aquamarina is so dedicated as well. Thank you Rogelio for a very nice place to stay and for keeping in touch although not on site yourself. I truly felt that each and everyone care a lot about my happiness while on vacation. Overall, a great experience that I recommend without hesitation. Thank you all!!! I will come back!"

  • Great experience!!

    "The house, staff, amenities and facilities are just as advertised. The house is easy to get to and is very clean. Marta (the cook/cleaning lady) was very helpful and friendly. You need to bring your own food and drinks to the house in order for her to prepare what you need, and if she doesn't know how to cook it, she's very willing to learn. We had some blackouts, but the inverter they have in the house makes all electric appliances keep working, so you don't even feel it. Water heater worked well. There are good restaurants just a few miles close to the house, as well as small convenience stores for stuff you forget to bring. The pool is very clean and has good temperature. The beach also has a nice feel to it, but the beginning of it is really rocky, so water slippers are recommended. There's plenty of space for big groups to spread in the house and around the property. We were a party of 11 (including children) and everyone felt comfortable and had a blast. The house has cable and it has many channels available, however, most of them are in Spanish. The house has wifi, but it can get slow if two or more computers try to connect at the same time. The owner was always very responsive to our questions before, during and after the trip, very friendly and reliable. Electricity is paid separate from the cost of the house and depends on how much you spend during your stay (we spent about US$ 50 for 3 nights and 4 days). I would recommend this place 100%!"
