Heaven on Earth!
"My (20 year old) daughter and I spent our Christmas vacation at Casa Lila almost one month ago. We had never been to the Dominican Republic before and we were not disappointed! The villa was beautiful- just as pictured. The doors and shutters opening out to the pool made for delightful indoor/outdoor living. The weather was perfect and there was a wonderful breeze that -for the most part- made air conditioning unnecessary. The beach is so close to the villa; just a very short stroll through a quaint covered pathway. And once there, you are overcome by the absolute beauty of the scene. I honestly don't think I've ever seen more breath taking beaches as there were in Las Terrenas; the water was clear and always at the perfect temperature. We had hoped we wouldn't need a vehicle the whole time but the villa's distance from the village required a car (I was a little worried about the driving but it was actually kind of a fun adventure). Everyone was so kind and helpful and, although my daughter does speak Spanish, we found most people spoke several languages, including English. Overall, I would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Las Terrenas. My only regret was that we couldn't stay longer!"

"This is a nice house in a quaint neighborhood, just away from Sosua center. This provides a quiet environment. The house, the pool and the garden are neat.
The furniture and equipment are in good condition and the house is comfortable. The A/C units in the bedrooms are quite loud but function very well.
The town is a 5 minutes drive away, which is very convenient.
I recommend this place. It worked well for us."

"I wanted to let you know that our stay last week at your beautiful Cap Cana Oasis completely exceeded our expectations! We searched for many months for something special to celebrate my parents' 50th wedding anniversary and your beautiful villa seemed to fit our family perfectly. The house itself is absolutely perfect and beautifully appointed. The bedrooms were immaculate and the pool and cabana areas were just splendid. Alejandro seamlessly organized our transportation from the airport and we were greeted by the always smiling Luz who had cool scented towels for us when we arrived. Miguel had the first of what would be seemingly endless frozen drinks for us and Chef Daniel had a fantastic spread waiting. We couldn't have asked for a better welcome. What unfolded over the week was very special. Your staff did more than just their jobs, they made our stay exceptional. Luz must work around the clock and do it invisibly as she was always a step ahead of us though I rarely saw her. The pool area was clean upon our waking and she cleaned our rooms daily leaving freshly laundered and pressed clothes for us every day. Miguel quickly became a friend and he too was always a step ahead. His twice daily visits to us with special drinks around the pool was much anticipated. He was so poised and perfect with every presentation it was very impressive to watch.Hiring Chef Daniel turned out to be one of the highlights of the trip. Not only was his food excellent but he has a true passion for what he does and it shows. His soups were divine as was the paella and the lobster and well, everything! With Alejandro's help my parents were surprised one night with balloons and a special cake with sparklers to mark their anniversary which was very special. Luz, Miguel and Daniel were all involved in the presentation and made it a very special moment. On our last night after dinner we asked Luz and Miguel to show us how to salsa and well we all ended up dancing-even the teenage boys which shocked us. This was truly the best vacation any of us have ever had. Many people do their jobs well but only a few do the extra things that make an experience truly exceptional. Your staff are amongst those few and are what made our visit so very special. Thank you for providing such a memorable experience and we hope to visit again soon!"

"I have stayed in Casa Dorado many times, and it never disappoints. The house is gorgeous, situated in a quiet location with easy access (short walking distance) to the center of town and La Playita. Cathereine, the owner, gives excellent recommendations for things to do and see in the area--she is a wonderful host! The house has many cozy places to hang out and relax after a long day at the beach, and includes a well-equipped kitchen to cook with a group or sample the amazing food that can be served by the staff. Highly recommended!"
