CASTLE/VILLA ON THE HILL
"When you wish to live like a king in a castle give Jose/Joseph a call. This property is something you can only find in magazines. The grounds are immaculate and the on site caretaker Wishney is there for any need for this Castle/Villa. I was here for a friends 50th Birthday Party and due to the number of participants we had a overflow of people. Well we lucked out and ended up here. The views from this Castle/Villa are amazing. We had difficulty with a television and Jose/Joseph provided another immediately, two actually. The large kitchen is amply stocked with all necessary cooking and dishes for a football team. I am hoping I get to return here to stay in the very near future to again live like a king in a castle."

"When we booked a trip to the caribbean for June we hadn't thought of the heat. This was a non issue for this great home. The cross breeze going through the home was the best. We were never hot. All the bedrooms have air conditioning and each works really well. The house itself is very spacious and fully equipt with linens, towels, all kitchen items you could need and they have even thought to keep sunblock and bug spray in the house in case you forget. We made plans ahead of time for transportation from the Puerto Plata airport. The driver was recommended to us from Allen and he couldn't have been nicer. Although he is not an official tour guide he knows everyone and everything in tihs part of the DR. We did rent a car for the later part of the trip. I only recommend renting a car after you have been out a few times and got the lay of the land and definitely get the GPS. Jennys is the market in Costambar which will get you the basics. La Sirena is a walmart like store which has the most options. We discovered the store once we had the rent a car and will be making this our first stop during our next visit.
Every day we took a morning walk around the neighborhood. It is beautiful. First we walked along the beach and then weaved in and out of all the streets to admire the architecture and landscapes of the homes. We also saw roosters and horses on all our walks. We had breakfast at home and then ventured out for lunch and dinner. We went to some of the restaurants Allen recommended and they were all great. A few nights we stayed in costambar and enjoyed the local restaurants. Out of Costambar Tres Cocos was by far my favorite and for authentic dominican food go to the mofungo king in sosua on the beach. You won't be disappointed.
Last but not least is Isidro the property manager. Isidro came by every day to check on us and make sure everything was going smoothly. He is such a kind man and since we have never had a vacation like this where we rented a home for the week, he made us feel comfortable and at home.
For those who like to keep their options open this charming vacation renatal is a great choice if you like to be on tyour own schedule"

Great place. Good time. Needs a little improvement.
"Overall we had a great time at this resort. Pleasant, friendly staff took great care of us. It took a little time to find which we're the better restaurants and bars, but we finally had it figured out. We rented a 3 bedroom villa that was wonderful with a few exceptions.
1. Upon arrival, the pool was dirty and it didn't get cleaned properly until day 3 of our stay.
2. One of the toilets in the bedroom was so small, you have to be a contortionist to get in and close the door (seriously!).
3. It would be great if the 6 seat golf carts were available to all villas. 3 bedrooms, 6 people, 4 seat golf cart???
5. Although VIP status, we were excluded from the best restaurant on the premises.
I Still think this is a resort you can fall in love with. I would opt for slightly different accommodations next time."

"Nous sommes demeuré 4 semaines. Dans le condo il y a toutes les facilitées. Balcon intime alors nous avons pris tout nos repas sur le balcon. Le condo est à une minute de marche de la plage. La plage est bien. Nous avons passé des moments très agréable à la piscine en compagnie des autres locataires sur le site. Plusieurs bon restaurants à Costambar donc pas besoin d'automobile......"
