About Theresa Feller
We are a family of four with two young girls, ages 12 & 15, and love spending time at our condo. The beach, ocean and pools have brought our family so many fun memories. We've supplied our condo with everything we could think of to make it so easy to visit!
Theresa Feller purchased this Condo in 2009
Why Theresa Feller chose El Cortecito
My husband and I bought this condo on our very first visit to Punta Cana. The beaches are majestic, the water turquoise and no buildings taller than the palm trees! It's so natural!
What makes this Condo unique
After putting the kiddies to bed we love sharing a drink and staring at the stars on our rooftop balcony! Not many bugs since we're on the fourth floor :-)

The condo is exactly as described. We were met at the airport by Alex, he was great! A very friendly driver who took us to the condo where we were greeted by Liz, one of the most attentive managers we have ever dealt with, she is amazing!! Everything you need is within walking distance, we ate at Cat’s Corner, right across the street, and the Asian place down the beach. Having Bam Market across the parking lot was great, we were in there every day,
We did not need the a/c, there is a constant breeze, with all of the windows and doors open, it remains very comfortable. Liz will respond very quickly with any issues you have, one day our toilet was not flushing, she was on it immediately, turns out there was a water main break to the property. That was fixed by the end of the day, we were at the beach and not affected. Our stay could not have been better, thank you Theresa and Liz, we will definitely stay again when we return to Punta Cana.
Michelle & Family
Thank you Michelle and family! I am so glad to have assisted you through email and to have Liz there to meet, greet, help out etc. She is our secret weapon. We're looking forward to hosting you again. Theresa
This is a great property. We really enjoyed our stay. There are a number of fantastic restaurants just outside the complex. Prices very reasonable. The unit itself is clean and nice. The complex is relaxing and quiet. Theresa was great to deal with. The on site property manager (Liz) was also fantastic. Very smoooth transaction, no issues at all.
Only minor issue - some of the bars are quite noisy at night time - but this was not a major problem.
Two of my friends and I traveled to Punta Cana together for the first time. I was a little anxious at first since we didn't go the normal route of an all-inclusive resort. Needless to say by the end of the trip that anxiety was put to rest.
Theresa and Liz, the property manager, were extremely helpful, both willing to answer questions or point you in the right direction.
The condo was very nice and up-to-date and had all the basic necessities and more. The room can get a little warm and humid, but it was livable and much better than anticipated. When there we typically left the windows and doors open that cooled the place down nicely. There was some building repairs going on during our stay and we had a few instances where the water went out, but nothing to lose sleep over. Only other thing to note is that the building is near the back of the complex closer to the restaurants so at night it can get a little loud. Irregardless of these minor things we enjoyed our stay.
The condo is centrally located to grocery stores and restaurants. Citrus, NamNam, Don Pio are great for lunch or dinner. Delia's is a great spot for breakfast. There is also a bakery across from the entrance of the complex that has amazing croissants. If you are up for a walk along the beach Balicana is a nice Asian restaurant to the left of Playa Tuquesa. It wasn't necessary to have a rental car as all of the excursions come with transport, and for all other needs you could coordinate with Alex. I also, wouldn't dream of driving there as traffic laws are more of a suggestion.
We basically spent what we would have spent for an all-inclusive package on eating out various places and excursions.
If you are looking to do any excursions I highly recommend looking into going using the El Tour Caribe travel agency. The owners Lise and Edwar live in Playa Turquesa. Additionally, Julie who works in the office is a great resource. Highly recommend to bring cash to cover excursions to avoid fees. This isn't an issue when dining out and such, as those fees are automatically included, typically 18% city tax + 10% tip. Although, the 10% tip is much of a tip if you use credit card to pay.
Our family rented this condo for a week starting 07/02/17. It sits a short walk away from the beach but close to its own pool. We were near the Bam Market for alcohol and groceries etc. Right outside the 24 hour guarded gate are many restaurants, pastry shops, a cigar shop, and of course smoothie huts that serve delicious and healthy drinks. Plenty of friendly moped drivers are nearby for easy and affordable lifts. There are some close by bars that serve awesome food and drinks. With our air conditioner on and a fan blowing, we did not hear the nearby entertainment-music as bad as some others have posted. The owners of this condo were fantastic to work with and the decor shows that they really care about their condo. We washed and dried our clothes in this condo as well. When we boarded our plane back to the U.S., we felt like we were truly leaving paradise!!!
Nice Condo, Decent Complex
Overall, we had a nice experience at Playa Turquesa. The condo is well-maintained and cleaned. One of our surprise favorite features was the balcony hammock. Of note, the credit for AC doesn't get you far. We came in just shy of having to pay an overage fee -- and we didn't use the AC excessively. That said, the condo complex could use some updating. The chairs and cushions were worn and could use a cleaning. But, the real standout of the trip was Liz, the property manager. She was kind, helpful and patient.
Expectations met and more
My husband and I stayed at the condo along with another couple to celebrate my birthday, what an amazing time we had and the condo provides you with anything that you can possibly need, Theresa has thought of everything and the property manager Liz is the most lovely woman she is amazing and she even bought me a bottle of champagne once she found out it was my birthday. The stay here epitomizes the meaning of "Home Away".
Sherry, Thank you for the kind review. Great way to spend your birthday! We'd love to host you again, anytime:-) Theresa
