Recent La Romana reviews
Great week in DR
"We recently stayed at Las Lomas 5 with three other families (8 adults, 6 kids) for a week. While I planned for 6 months to make sure all of our trip details were correct, I still was worried something would go wrong when travel day arrived. Rest assured travelers - the staff associated with Las Lomas 5 has you covered.
Hotelbeds (Dominican Airport Transportation) met us at customs in Santo Domingo & quickly ushered us to our private transport. After a quick stop at the Villas Owners office for check-in, we were greeted by our staff (and newly-found friends) in the open foyer. The villa manager, Jeannette, arranged for a snack of Dominican street food as well as drinks served by Jose, the villa butler, under the open air palapa. Meanwhile Miguelina, the villa chef, was busy preparing our first meal consisting of fresh Mahi Mahi accompanied by maduros, rice and beans. Within an hour of arriving, everyone was already relaxed and in vacation mode.
The villa was huge and pictures do not do it justice. There was plenty of room for everyone as well as areas to lounge around both inside and out. The 3 golf carts we had rented for the week were delivered within the first hour of our arrival. Coffee was served each morning on the veranda, followed by a sit down breakfast. Our beds were made while we ate, and our laundry was done/placed back in our rooms by the evening. All of our meals were outstanding, especially the lobster/shrimp in spicy marinara, a Miguelina specialty. I can't say enough about the staff - they were truly outstanding. They made every effort to ensure our needs were met and exceeded expectations daily (i.e. Jose getting us extra Presidentes from another villa when running low on the golf course). Upon returning home you realize how much they freed you up to enjoy Casa de Campo without having to perform daily tasks like cooking, shopping, cleaning; it was a treat and their hard work daily should be commended.
The resort was very safe, easy to navigate. Golf was excellent, especially La Romana CC (private course which can be played weekdays in the morning upon request at TOTD clubhouse). We ate out at The Beach Club & La Casita, both excellent meals aside from a few cases of GI distress. La Minitas beach was average, Altos de Chavon very unique with an excellent chocolate shop & handy minimart for daily supplies & restocking drink supplies.
Bavaro Runners zip line adventure fun but not for those who scare easily - would pass next time"

"What a joy it was to spend a long week at 72 Los Lagos. I have rented many villas in the past in CDC. There are MANY to choose from and all have their own unique style and personal taste, I'll explain more later.
If you have the ability to fly direct as we did, this is your best option into La Romana. JetBlue from JFK was our choice and the trip pretty much went with no issues there and back, customs can be a mess on the US side, but thats just to be expected. CDC has its own booths at customs and is very quick. The trip to check-in at CDC took all of 10 minutes. Rita, the house mgr, can set up pre registration that only takes a few minutes to process. Other choice would be to fly into Santo Domingo and travel by van to see the countryside. This would take about an hour and a half. Even if it's a connecting flight, I suggest La Romana.
Allow a month at least before trip to settle needs for villa. Rita will take care of everything that you could possibly want. She supplies a reccomended menu and a list of dinner options. Carts are available and expect to spend 45 to 60 per day depending on size. Carts are all you will need to get around CDC. We rented a 4 and 6 person and worked out well with 6 adults and 2 kids.
The villa is wonderful in design and kept very well. The layout is perfect for children as there are few steps and you can keep an eye on them. AC is availble in the bedrooms (not villa) and the villa is open to let breeze pass through. This is common in all CDC villas. The yard is perfect as you exit to a large area with seating for lounge and dining on one side and pool and lounge on the other.
The best I've ever experienced. To say they go above and beyond is an understatement. For them to be professional is one thing, but we actually had fun with them. Edie, Mercedes and Ramon all get an A+. If you rent this villa for this reason alone, you will not be dissapointed.
Golf (all great). Teeth is a must as being a top 35 course in the world. Dye Fore is a great change from Teeth and The Links is available too. If you're a golfer, book golf 1st as there could be tournaments. The beach is a 3 minute drive in the cart and is full service and great for all ages. The marina has all the shops and restaurants you could need. The pools at the hotel are fun too.
There is a lot more I could mention. If this is your thing to rent a villa of this size-do it!
Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. Great weather too."

"This was the perfect place for our golf group - 6 of us, all women. The house is simply spectacular, the staff incredible and the owners accommodating beyond our expectations. The pictures on the website do not do it justice. If you want a comfortable place to lay your head at night and fabulous golf during the beautiful Caribbean days this is the place for you!"
