A relaxing ocean-front paradise
"I recently returned from a week-long paradise at Allen’s ocean-front home. It was beautiful. It is a very spacious house with all of the comforts of home including but not limited to: large bedrooms (2 that look out to the ocean), satellite TV, complimentary WIFI, telephone, roomy kitchen, and air conditioning. Every day started as you’d expect in a tropical paradise: morning coffee on the back patio while enjoying ocean breezes and taking in the view. THAT VIEW!!
Isidro will stop by daily to assure you're enjoying your stay at the house; he couldn’t be nicer. As a further indulgence, Maria-Elena will come by twice (per 1 week visit) to thoroughly clean the house. These services come at no extra cost, but tipping is appreciated (Allen was happy to offer us guidance as to how much we should give). There are plenty of clean linens and towels, the latter which come in handy after enjoying a hot shower in one of the 4 full bathrooms.
With an abundance of restaurants nearby, there is no need to leave the local area. It was lovely to spend days on end walking around the neighborhood and enjoying the local hospitality, not to mention the beaches which are only a minute’s walk from your front door. Having a rental car did come in handy, however, as there is plenty to explore outside of Costambar. The house has a driveway that can easily accommodate two vehicles.
Regardless of the time of day, I always felt safe and found the local residents to be pleasant and likeable. Knowing some Spanish proved helpful though is not required.
This was my first trip to the Dominican Republic and I wouldn't hesitate recommending this home to family and friends. Thanks to my wonderful experience, I'm already looking forward to returning!!"

"This was the best vacation that my entire family experienced from the breakfast cooked daily in our villa to the restaurants that we ate at. You will find this resort overwhelming and I am sure that we did not see everything that this resort has to offer. We will be back."

"An excellent place, away from the hustle and bustle. i would recommend renting a car though, the resort is huge and you would need a car to get around it. The apartment is not childproof though, neither was it advertised to be so extra caution is necessary."

"What a wonderful vacation!! This was our first visit to the Dominican Republic.
We were greeted at the airport by Oscar the Butler, who was the friendliest and most polite person we ever met. We arrived at the house to a wonderful lunch, prepared by our gourmet chef, Chris. What a great way to start our vacation.
The house was beautiful, everyone enjoyed the pool and relaxed under the palm hutch. Our rooms were very spacious, clean and very welcoming. Alicia, our house keeper stayed on top of everything from keeping the rooms clean, doing our laundry and even changing the batteries in our TV remote. Always with a smile.
We were 2 families totaling 12 people and our children were between the ages of 21 and 26. We had access to 2 golf carts and a minivan, which allowed everyone to come and go at their convenience.
The beach was 5 minutes away and there was much to do there. Either relax, play volley ball or ping pong. We recommend bring blowup tubes and rafts to enjoy in the beautiful ocean, which we did.
We chose to have the chef cook for 3 of the 6 nights we were there. The food was absolutely amazing! We chose to eat lobster tails one night a fresh roast pig another, authentic Dominican steak the other night.
The other 3 nights we ate at restaurants on the property. But enjoyed the home cooked meals much better!
The owner of the house, Fernando, helped us book a catamaran which we enjoyed for the day.
We highly recommend this house and we WILL be back.
Thank you to Fernando for a most wonder trip.
p.s. wish we could have brought the staff home with us!"
