Recent Dominican Republic reviews
A great overall experience. I liked it so much I came back.
"I brought my 19 and 22 year-old sons here for spring break and we loved every bit of it. We were here a year ago and I am looking forward to going back. Going to this region requires pre-planning if you are not accustomed to it. You are not in the US. But that is why I like it. Everything is a little different. This trip can be as relaxing or exciting as you choose. I like a balance of both. The house and grounds are great for a family. The staff at the house are friendly and take pride in what they do. The house, Casa Blanca, is pretty and clean. Sobeida (I am probably not spelling her name correctly) is a great cook. The restaurant food in the area does not match Sobeida’s so save yourself a lot of hassle and try to arrange your day to enjoy your meals at home. Part of the adventure is going out to get groceries. Eat what is local and you will get the best results. The fresh fruit along the road is also good and more fun than going to the grocery.
My suggestions that made my stay easier: 1. Get at least enough groceries for the next few meals and snacks at a grocery on your way home from the airport. When shopping, it is expected that you will feed the staff of 3 people. It won’t matter. It is much more economical and enjoyable than eating out. A good grocery store called La Sirena. https://goo.gl/maps/BHrNV
2. Driving in the Dominican is difficult. However, having no car would be rough for me as I like to explore and venture out. The drivers are aggressive. I typically decline coverage when I rent a car. Not here. Get full coverage and use your Amex card as they usually cover the first $500 if there is a claim. A lot of vehicles drive at night do not have any headlights. I already have a hard time driving at night so I always tried to time my day so I would be home by dark.
3. Look at a map before you get there and before you head out.
4. Bring cash. Know the exchange rate. Many businesses will take US currency, but don’t count on it all of the time. Convert US currency at the bank located at the grocery store for the best rate in the easiest way."

"This home is a Dream!!!! from the moment you walk into the home you are greeted by three Magnificent People, Thelma, Elias and Carlos...they went out of their way to always please us. The house is meticulously maintained, The bedrooms were Incredibly beautiful, there is so much open spaces in this house and places to relax, you never feel cramped, ALways Hot Water, Air conditioned in the rooms, and the media room were so cold, you had to cover yourself...the house is a 3 minute golf cart ride to the Minitas Beach, a 15-20 minute drive to Altos De Chavon, on your Golf Cart, you dont feel the ride, because the views going to Altos is beautiful. Chef Kendy and his Sous Chef Carlos were amazing...Food was actually superior than to the restaurant we experienced one night...we all were in agreement that the food was a 5 star restaurant experience at the home. The security of the Resort is A PLUS, we had no insecurities what so ever about leaving any of our personal belongings laying around. There is a safe in each room to keep your valuables if you choose to do so. ALl of our IPADs, Phones, and Laptops were all laying around at all times. and Nothing was missing. WE ALL LOVED this house. We are definitely planning to go back next year. Thank you Maree and your incredible staff for a Magical vacation. Please let Thelma and Elias know we miss them dearly!!!!"

"Our first impression was positive. When we entered the grounds, we were greeted with a beautifully maintained property. The unit is all you can ask for - the views of the ocean from the living area and the master bedroom are magnificent, the furniture is very up-to-date, and new appliances had been installed in the kitchen the day before our arrival. Both bedrooms and the living area have TVs and DVD players. There are plenty of DVDs and books to choose from. Wayne and Kim have made sure to create a very comfortable and desirable atmosphere for their guests.
In addition, Wayne and Kim were kind enough to recommend places of interest and local restaurants in Cabarete that helped us make the vacation a 10. Cabarete was great - beaches, restaurants on the beach, activities and music can be found throughout the town. We plan to vacation in the DR again."
