    "We rented this villa for 18 people and had such a peaceful, wonderful experience. I equate it to renting out a small resort and not having to share it with others. You get personal attention from the wonderful Ariel Perez who is there to answer any and all questions you may have. He is an extremely friendly and genuine man that values customer service and ensures the guests are comfortable. The customer facing staff is amazing. Chef Ozzy makes sure to gather your input about meals and will execute your menu flawlessly. The wait staff of Raymundo and Ramos are attentive, extremely polite, and fun. The staff was engaging and made an effort to get to know us. The back office staff always ensured we had fresh towels and toiletries and that rooms were always clean. We have absolutely no complaints about the staff, genuinely appreciated their efforts and company. Honestly, the staff is great, but the best part is really the villa. It literally is a small resort. The pool is big and deep. Great for swimming and floating around. There is a kiddie pool which is also quite large, but no one spent any time in it. The hot tub is AMAZING. Grab a couple of beers and some good company and you can waste away the night looking at the stars, listening to the ocean, and talking story. The property is on the ocean, and only a 5, sometimes 10 foot jump away. Be daring, the ocean looks rough, but it's not as bad as it looks. The tennis court is great and has night lights. The veranda is where everyone spends so much time and is a perfect area for meals and lounging. It's a treat to live like this, even only for just a few day. We were luckily enough to spend time with friends and family in this wonderful place. It's a place we would love to visit again, and one we regret having to leave. Cheers to Deena, Ariel, and the entire staff for the wonderful hospitality."

  • 5 star staff and views.

    "The home is great, but what made the vacation for us was the staff!!! I wanted to pack them up and bring them home with us. Chabela, Alexandra, and Rafel made the vacation. Pros: The staff..Best staff we have had at any villa!! Far better than the staff people we encountered on the property and in town. The home is very nice and the views even better. The location is great... Steps to beach, not too far from marina and great to golf watch in the morning, if not playing. Enjoyed shops and sites at Altos de Chavon. Going to the Jumbo market is easy and Rafel arranged for a very nice man to take us to the market and he was extremely patient with us. Cons... Three of us were meals for the mosquitoes, literally forcing two people to spend most time in their room when at the house. As for the rest of us, we forced thru the bites and enjoyed the home, pool, beach and exploring the property. Catalina Island was not exactly what we were expecting. We had very rough waters and several folks on our catamaran adventure hurt themselves getting banged up on the rocky beach by the rough tide. The best beach is just a few feet away from home. There is a nice public beach in town too. There is very little to do in terms of a night life on property. Master bedroom is lovely, but I must say the mattress was extremely firm. If you are looking for that great five star friendliness at hotel, you will not find it. Always felt as if we were bothering them. I usually shop at hotel shops on vacation, but opted to pass this time. Which made coming back to Chabela, Alexandra, and Rafel even more refreshing. They truly could give lessons in hospitality. We took a few day trips, ate out a couple of times, but seriously Chabela's food rivals and surpasses the food we eat out in the States at some pretty fancy spots. Alexandra is always there, but not there at the same time. She anticipated our needs and was there just at the right time. All meals were handled with care and the settings were beautiful. We had a couple of language hang-ups, but we all figured it out. My son had been ill, which I had mentioned to owners and they relayed to staff. The staff went above and beyond to ensure that all of us had a great time, but especialy my son. The staff all but adopted him. At the end he said it was our best vacation ever and we have been to many places. The entire group enjoyed themselves."

  • Beyond Compare!

    "Staying at Barranca 21 was like being in a movie. The rooms were spacious and beautifully decorated. We enjoyed the view of the ocean from the pool and jacuzzi. We took fun walks and enjoyed the beach, marina and shopping close by. The staff was accommodating and very pleasant. Food was beautifully presented and delicious. All in all a great location!"

    "Gorgeous unbeatable , panoramic views, spacious, wonderful living area, large comfortable bedrooms and baths, lovely staff. Very accommodating owner. Excellent piña coladas!!try the filet, beef stew, pork roast, bar b q chicken and of course rice and beans! Nothing beats Teeth of the Dog golf course running alongside the Caribbean. A great vacation spot for all ages and all energy levels, those who like to read and relax and those who like a day filled with sailing,golfing, tennis and more."
