Beautiful Condo, Excellent Location, Some Glitches
"Condo gorgeous, just like pictures. Balcony incredible!! Wifi works and is reliable!! We were there in July, 2015. The TVS in the bedroom are bigger than the TV in the living room-they should switch them. The resort area of Cap Cana Marina is the most beautiful place you will find on this side of the DR. Absolutely stunning, completely safe! Need a car to get around in here-don't rent the golf cart; you will limit yourself. It's as big as Manhattan. When renting a car be sure to buy car insurance from the car company; they will charge your credit card an absorbent fee if you don't have company insurance. So buy Avis or Budget's etc. insurance (not Priceline's.) Shower does not get hot here -warm at best. Biggest problem was seaweed. An American who has lived here for 4 years said it's getting worse each year. The seaweed made 2 of the 3 coves unusable. Workers remove it, but their efforts were fruitless as the amounts of seaweed were massive-made the coves look like brown, stinky swamps. The smell of the seaweed is awful (like sulfur). Api Beach, a 4 minute walk away was fine because they put up a wall to block seaweed. This was the best sea swimming in the area as we also checked out Juanillo & Bavaro Beach, both of which were brown & full of seaweed. Caleton was closed.The pools are gorgeous and we spent most of our time there. This entire side of the island has a seaweed problem right now; it cannot be escaped by going somewhere else. We did not have enough washcloths, blankets and TV in 2nd bedroom did not work; Jill said she would send Denisse her condo manager, but Denisse never came. The elevator is broken and no one worked on it the entire time we were here-a small inconvenience. We were only given 1 key and 1 pass to enter the building but could have used 2 so we could divide up our group, particularly because the elevator was not working. The resort is classy and stunning-looks like a multi million dollar complex. Workers are extremely nice, and some of the absolute best meals we ever had we had right at the marina (ACQUA MARE). We'd come back & rent from Jill FOR SURE but not in July when the seaweed might be a problem. The condo is just stunning, the views even better, & Jill was really responsive to our emails, etc. She is super. Because of the seaweed issue, Jill even offered us a small discount off the agreed upon price. Highly recommend! WAY BETTER than all inclusive! So much more room!! It's tranquil here!"

"Conveniently located about 25 minutes from PUJ, this property is within a very secure ocean front Condo Complex that is beautifully maintained by a friendly staff of local Dominican employees. 2 lovely pools (one with a swim up bar), an ocean front pergola, more than enough beach chairs and umbrellas to accommodate all. A market on site and a really good variety of reasonably priced restaurants within a 2 - 10 minute walk of the complex. There is no need for a vehicle.
The Condo is very nicely appointed. The kitchen is complete for those wanting to make meals. 2 bathrooms are a definite plus, as is a pool 10 steps from the back (covered) patio. Just a lovely unit!
The beach is lovely and goes on for miles. It is clean, the water is warm and seaweed is not a major issue. The water contains spectacular colors.
Perhaps the singular best part of this particular unit is its property manager(s). Gayla and Michael are available 24/7 to deal with any issues and to offer guidance, direction and suggestions as needed. My wife and Gayla formed a bound which I suspect will last a lifetime.
We have traveled fairly extensively within Central America and the Caribbean and I really now question why it took us so long to find the DR. It has become a serious option for our 2015 retirement.
Thanks Marianna for providing a marvelous Condo in a beautiful, beautiful location. Thanks Gayla and Michael for your friendship and attentiveness. Lastly, thanks Ace for being you and a great Tour Guide."

"We are a family of 3 and all in agreement; this villa was perfect!! A home away from home indeed. We just returned; and we're truly sad to leave. Chicho the cab driver was waiting for us when we arrived at the airport in Punta Cana. We stopped at the supermarket on the way to the villa to pick up a few groceries while he waited. Everything was perfect at the villa when we arrived, Morena was waiting for us- she was a gem from day one. She showed us around and saw to our every need for the duration of our stay. This was our first time to DR and will most definitely return. The beach, the restaurants, the amenities and easy access to everything made for a perfect vacation. We appreciated not needing to rent a car since there were different places within walking distance to visit each day. The villa was clean and extremely cosy. The air-conditioning and fans kept us cool and comfortable, having drinking water provided was a big help. The people were very friendly and welcoming, everyone made us feel like family. We enjoyed our time on the beach, which was never crowded , there was so much to do in the area, shopping, eating, drinking (we even enjoyed fresh coconut water from the actual coconut). The service was impeccable at every turn. Thanks to the owners of the villa; we went equipped with a ton of info so we were never left guessing what to do next. We can't wait to return to this perfect vacation villa!!!"

"I will echo previous reviews. Steve the owner, and Ives the property manager were nice to work with. Ives does an incredible job and I would HIGHLY recommend one of Ives excursions, we had a lot of fun and he goes out of his way to make sure that everything goes well. The real Dominican Republic outing was our favorite. Be sure to take something to handout to the children at a school and bring water shoes ( for walking on stones in water) for the outing as well."
