  • A great vacation in the DR

    "Couldn't have had a better time thanks to Paul & Tamara!! 2 weeks in the beautiful Dominican Republic. Our lodgings were nicely appointed, maintained & clean. Our day trips from the Villa were exciting and interesting. Several trips into Puerto Plata (7 mins) to visit the Fort, the Amber Museum, the Larimar Museum, up the Cable Car, the Luperon Museum & lots of shopping. Other day trips to: Monti Christi with the most beautiful beach; the mountain city of Jarabacoa with gorgeous waterfalls & rivers, Carnival Celebration & stunning vistas; to Sosua for the beaches & Jewish Museum; but the most fun was our trip to Paul & Tamara’s Plantacion de Cacao Del Eden, after which we drove to La Isabella for the Columbus ruins & museum & a delicious lunch on the beach front. Great restaurants in the area: your special night should be at Mares Restaurant with Chef Rafael Vasquez-Heinsen!, we ate three times at La Papillon with Chef Tomas, famous for his Pina Coladas. Andrea our personal chef & house keeper was a star… imagine getting up in the morning, going outside to sit under the lanai, over looking your private pool with the ocean glimmering & being served a wonderful breakfast of tasty dishes by Chef Andrea! She kept the Villa looking spotless & even asked to launder our clothes! Just sitting around the pool at the Villa, we had to keep the binoculars close for the best birding!! Tamara’s gardens surrounding the Villa were beautiful. The Villa had a great kitchen & electronics & internet connections. But the key to our fabulous vacation was Paul & Tamara!! They made sure everything went well & anticipated our every need. The Dominican Republic is a great vacation. Urban & rural, world history & solitary beaches, great weather & the beautiful people... bring your camera!"

  • Great Villa, Great Vacation

    "The Villa Carolisol is a great Villa to stay at for a vacation. Maria and Jose, did an excellent job with any and everything wr needed. Maria's meals were terrific.The Villa is very spaceous, the pool was nice and was always clean, thanks to Jose. The beach is less then a 2 minute walk from the Villa.The ocean breeze was fantastic from the 2nd floor balcony area. Everyone in my party was completely satisfied with the Villa and its staff. I will recommend The Villa Carolisol to, and for anyone planning a trip to the Dominican Republic"

  • Excellent all around!

    "My wife and I loved our stay at the suite. The suite is extremely large, clean and luxurious. We enjoyed the large balcony with a couch and hammock. Restaurants, bars, the ocean and pools were a short walk away. The suite was plenty big for two- we had two bathrooms, a kitchen area and large jacuzzi tub. Simply a great space at a great property."

  • Cozy, Romantic & Affordable.

    "We actually stayed in this condo for the first time on January 8 - 28 - 2013, and when we decided to explore the Dominican Republic further, we traveled throughout the island and continued returning to this fantastic "Home-Base". We spent a total of 4 months on the island and returning to this "Home-Base" was always the highlight of our being in the Dominican Republic! Descriptions of this retreat was more than accurate & the best location in the entire complex. Beds and all furnishings were comfy & cozy. The unit is extremely clean and the entire property is well maintained. The owner was very helpful and Victoria the housekeeper is sweet and a great cook!! The property manager was also very helpful and friendly, as were the security crew. We always felt safe and never understood why the security crew was needed, but we reasoned it out that since most of the condo owners lived abroad, it was a good idea that there was a small security crew there. ( They helped us with anything we needed, jump starting our car, bringing in the water cooler bottles and even helping us move our suitcases from one unit to another when we wanted to try another unit while this one was booked out. So no problems or worries on your visit to Playa Cofresi I assure you!! The beach was interesting and we met people from all over the World in Playa Cofresi. Everyone was helpful as far as the neighborhood. We felt like we lived a small lifetime in the 4 months we were there, and now we feel "HomeSick" and can not wait to return!!! Thanks to the community of Playa Cofresi, Lorraine, Victoria, Maria, Dennis, Peter, Chris & Maddy, John Dobbs, Jo Ann, Carlito, Ms. Hunt, and all that made our adventure to the Dominican Republic fabulous!! ( Too many wonderful people, memories and restaurants to mention!!) We shall return and hopefully this unit will be available!!!!!! James & Laurie ( Nova Scotia / Florida )"
