  • Family of 6 @ Stanza Mare

    "Our family (myself, wife, two 18 year olds, 15 year old, and 12 year old) thoroughly enjoyed our stay @ Nelsons condo. Very easy to work with from the beginning to end. Franklin, the property manager, picked us up from the airport and stopped by the Super Pola for groceries. He helped us get what we needed and then took us to the condo. He answered any and all questions we had. As far as the property, it was perfect for us. Having the new gas grill on the patio was a plus. We used it twice during our stay. The pool is very nice and convenient from the condo (maybe 15-20 yards away). The beach is maybe 50-75 yards away and has nice chairs and huts to use. We enjoyed the sand and sun every day!! To be honest, there was more seaweed than we expected, but the staff are out there each day raking it up. It is clearer on some days in surrounding beach areas. We enjoyed the bakery, and other surrounding restaurants, but also ate in a fair amount. We took an excursion in jeeps that also allowed us to do some zip-lining, horseback riding, and lunch at the beach---long, but very entertaining day!! On our final day, Franklin picked us up at took us to the airport. I will say, the airport was our least favorite part....when we arrived, their computer system was down and it took us over 2 hours to get through the line (even though we were late, Franklin was still there waiting for us). Upon departure, it was a pretty lengthy process as well. It took 1.5-2 hours from the time we arrived at airport until we got to our gate. This has no reflection on the condo or the area, but some good info to share. All in all, we loved our time at Stanza Mare!!!"

  • Great Family Visit!

    "We had a great time at Rosa's lovely house. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. The meals were great and the nice big backyard provided plenty of room for the kids to run around. Highly recommended."

  • Piece of paradise

    "Sorry that I am so late in submitting a review. Getting back to work is tough after a great time, in a great residence, in a beautiful location. This past trip was my 6th time on Bavaro Beach and my 4th time in Flor del Mar. I am already planning my next trip back. Each time I go I look forward to reconnecting with people I have met and the chance to make new friends. Michael and Gayla are great hosts and are always available to make your stay a great experience. The entire trip is easy to set up and navigate. Virginia is great to work with making the reservations, the new airport terminal with jet-ways and separate customs stations goes much faster than it used to be, Cesar is waiting at the airport to give you a ride to Flor del Mar (with a stop at the supermarket if desired) and then Michael and Gayla meet you to get you settled into the residence. There are many fine restaurants a short walk away and small stores nearby that provide all that you need. The larger shopping centers are a short 30 pesos bus ride away or you can travel by taxi or motos. In the evenings there are several nightspots within walking distance or on the beach. Speaking of the beach, it is awesome! Fine sand, great ocean breezes, clear warm water and friendly people. There is a wide variety of activities provided on the beach that will keep you entertained if you want more than basking in the sun. The residence is clean, comfortable and, best of all, just steps from the beach! The people are friendly and helpful. I know that some visitors are uncomfortable with the locals who are selling things or asking for money but all you have to do is be straight forward with them, stand your ground and they will move on. I have never felt unsafe no matter the time of day or night. I have rambled on here so will end my review. I just hoped that the Flor del Mar condo is available for my next visit."

  • Hola - where to begin Casa Cabot...

    "My son and i checked in at this beautiful thatched roof compound and ocean front retreat with great expectation of experiencing the authentic Dominican Republic lifestyle as I had heard Cabrera would offer in comparison to its neighboring islands and boy were these expectations met! We pulled up to the house and the first impression is simply picturesque standing under the enormous thatched roof built over the house's living room overlooking the infinity pool into the ocean which is literally 50 feet from the house - nothing beats that !! The air was fresh, the ocean breezes, sounds of the waves, open air living throughout the compound. Dominga was our cook for the vacation and she surprised us everyday with a new dish or dessert. Service was attentive and Dominga tried hard to please. She were very accommodating about the menu for the in-house meals and tried hard to find fun activities for my son(8) and myself. There are all manner of tours, activities and attractions available as well, like Kite-boarding, Windsurfing, whale watching, zip-lining, 4-wheelers and trips around the country to enjoy, too, if that is your preference. This house offers everything you need for an amazing quiet retreat and I am definitely coming back to stay here again and re-experience the friendliness of the people that resides on this island, the astounding and unspoiled nature and beaches and the rare tranquility that is just so hard to find in today's hectic everyday life. Great spot altogether for a vacation! - a truly remarkable experience in today's world!!"
