Overview

About the property

3/3.5, sleeps 6-8, walk to beach, private pool, golf, tennis, activities galore!

Experience tropical luxury at the beautiful Villa Tatagua, a three-bedroom private villa within Punta Cana Resort and Club. Miles of pristine beach called Playa Serena (Serene Beach) is located just three blocks away. At the the villa, soaring ceilings and banks of windows and sliding glass doors mean that sunshine pours in, opening onto a sprawling patio and turquoise pool surrounded by palm trees that line the rolling greens of La Cana Golf Course.

Three bedrooms, each with its own en suite bath, sleep 6-8 and are perfect for families or couples traveling together.

Palatial Comfort + Plenty of Activities at Punta Cana Resort and Club

Begin the day with a dip in your own private pool and prepared-for-you breakfast on the patio, then hit the golf course for a round of 9 with incredible views of the Caribbean. Villa Tatagua is located in Tortuga Bay, an award-winning oasis of private single-family homes within Punta Cana Resort and Club.

In addition to incredible natural surroundings – Tortuga Bay is nestled in an ecological reserve – you’ll have your pick of activities: There’s a spa, horseback riding, Segway tours, kite and wind surfing, snorkeling, and tons more. At the nearby Ojos Indigenas, trails lead to twelve freshwater lagoons for a magical swimming experience.

Or let the hours pass on the beautiful, white-sand beach at Playa Serena, sure to provide hours of sandcastle-building fun for little ones. Or let us help you book a private catamaran tour, where you’ll see the wonders of the ocean close-up and personal while you snorkel in the gorgeous blue waters.

We can prepare fresh, delicious meals for you at the villa (guests rave over our local fare!) And if you feel like dining out, the resort offers several world-class restaurants. From fresh-squeezed juices and grown-on-site veggie dishes at Bamboo to grilled steaks and shrimp skewers on the beach at Playa Blanca, there’s something for every taste.

Afterward, enjoy a glass of wine as you watch the sunset from the patio. Then sink into luxe, 500-thread-count sheets with goose-down duvets. Bright, generously sized bedrooms with en suite bathrooms mean plenty of privacy for everyone. The master bathroom includes a separate shower and Jacuzzi tub that's perfect for long, hot soaks.

Friendly, Enthusiastic Service + Tons of Amenities

Before retiring to live my dream in the Dominican Republic, I was a civil engineer in a big American city. I’d visited the Dominican Republic many times, always brought back by the friendly people, beautiful beaches and tropical scenery. Today, I take the love that I have for this island and turn it into top-notch service for my guests, greeting you with a basket of local fruit, a drink, and a tour of the property. And because you’re staying at the island’s best resort, you’ll have access to all the amenities that Punta Cana Resort and Club has to offer.

About Eduardo

Hello! I’m Eduardo, the owner of Villa Tatagua in beautiful and tropical Punta Cana Resort and Club.

I am a retired US civil engineer and general contractor and know what it is like to live a stress-filled life in the hustle and bustle of a large city. I had vacationed in the Dominican Republic many times in the past and always found the beautiful beaches, friendly people and tropical scenery so relaxing and inviting. I always found it hard to leave when the vacation was over and couldn’t wait until I could once again return. When I retired, I decided to make a change: I turned one of my favorite vacation spots into my retirement home and am so happy I did!

I bought this Villa 6 years ago and spent several months remodeling it to what it is today…a beautiful 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath, spacious, sun-filled Villa facing hole 2 of La Cana Golf Course and a short walk to Playa Serena, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. I named the home Villa Tatagua in honor of a beautiful beachfront property my parents owned in Cuba.

I have loved every minute of this new life! It is a pleasure getting to know our guests and helping them turn their dream vacation into a reality. Many of our wonderful guests have returned year after year and we have a spotless 5-star review from 20 guests and counting!

My daughter and I will help make your vacation truly memorable. Leave your cares behind and enjoy Paradise!

Eduardo purchased this villa in 2007

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Eduardo,



We are having a lovely time.



Everything is wonderful... my husband and the two boys have been golfing nearly every day and loving it! Adrianna's meals have been wonderful and Chiciquito is also so pleasant and wonderful. We watched USA vs Belgium World Cup at the Westin on Tuesday which was also fun except for the USA loss:(



Everything fantastic. My one daughter and I are going to try some shopping in the San Juan shopping center once we figure out transportation.



Best and thank you for checking in,



Tina

Thank you,

Beautiful villa!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Villa Tatagua! The villa is beautifully appointed and very comfortable. The pool is smaller than it looks in the photo, but is nice none-the-less. The Villa is located at the front of the gated community so it is about a 10 minute walk to the beach.The beaches are lovely and access to all the amenities that the club has to offer are easily accessible by golf cart. Rosa and Edmondo were very helpful. Just a tip. Grocery's are very pricey and you should be specific on what you would like and quantities. Overall a great experience!

A wonderful stay for our family and friends for a 50th Birthday

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice villa conveniently located with Punta Cana Resort. It is close to both the airport (10 min) and the village (10 min) and a short golf cart ride to the beach club which has a nice beach, a pool, a great spa, and good dining facilities. We opted to pay extra to utilize the services of both Rosa (cooking) and Edmond and we were very happy we did. Rosa and Edmond are both terrific at what they do and a pleasure to have around the house. They don't speak much English but we all had a good laugh trying and ultimately Google Translate helped make sure everything went smoothly. Rosa is really a terrific cook ... she cooked breakfast for us every day (pancakes, eggs, bacon, fruit) as well as a couple of dinners which were equally as good thanks also to Edmond's grilling. Air conditioning in each of the rooms worked very well and cooled the rooms down quickly at night even after turning off the AC during the day. All in all, a great experience for my wife's 50th birthday!

Everything was Perfect

  • 5 of 5

I booked this trip to celebrate our 30th anniversary and we traveled with our 3 college age children. We arrived mid afternoon at Punta Cana airport. The trip through customs and immigration was a breeze. Be prepared, it costs $10.00 per person to get through immigration. Our driver was waiting in the airport just outside of customs with a sign bearing our name. We took the short ride to the villa and were greeted by Edmund and Rosa. Edmund assisted with our luggage. The home was perfect and the pictures do not do it justice. Rosa and Edmund were there for our everyneed. They preshopped for groceries and had a cold passion fruit punch ready for us when we arrived. We got unpacked and settled and had a nice afternoon beside the pool. We had a lovely dinner prepared by Rosa and Edmond. We had them fix us a late breakfast and Dinner at 6pm daily and snacked during the day. We used the golf carts to go to the beach and other parts of the resort, which is massive. The free WIFI was relatively fast and worked best upstairs and in the downstairs salon. It did not work well in the downstairs bedroom, but that was just not a big deal. Everything was just wonderful, especially the fresh coconut.

We took a taxi and toured a cigar factory, rum distillery and chocolate place. Spent a lot of time poolside and just relaxing. We have been to numerous all inclusive resorts, been on 20 plus cruises and have to say this was one of the most relaxing vacation we have ever had. It was priced in line with an all inclusive resort and an average 7 day cruise (balcony suite).

During our trips away from the villa, we never felt unsafe or exploited. A couple of things if you have never been to the DR. English is not as prevalent in the shops and stores as it is in other travel destinations. If you know a little espanol you can get along just fine. Rosa has limited english and Edmund just smiles when you say anything. They are both polite and gracious and wonderful hosts. Everything was easy to set up and communication with Eduardo the owner was easy and efficient. This will not be our last trip here!

Nice property in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely in a nice area in Punta Cana - Tortuga Bay. It is in a gated area with nice and attentive security. You definitely want at least one golf cart, if not two...depending on the number of people in the house. You are extremely close to the La Cana Golf Course and the Westin Hotel (closest ATM) is nearby. The Golf Course club house is a good place to relax and have a drink with a view of the ocean. Playa Blanca is a nice beach with food/drink service that is right after the Westin Hotel - 7 min. golf cart ride.

We rented a car to tour the area a bit and I would recommend it. Not for everyone, but we liked the ability to move freely from the resort. La Romana, Higuey are a few closer towns to check out. Drove into the mountains from Higuey and to Macao Beach where you can have some fresh food and and drinks - mildly touristy as folks will try to sell you stuff, but still worth a visit.

Rosa (cook) and Chiquitico (house help) were great to have and made the trip even better. They don't speak English, but a translator app works fine. I happened to be with Spanish speaking people, so was easy for us. Rosa is a great cook and it makes it easy to not worry about breakfast or dinner - or the cleanup. Chiquitico was a great resource for ideas of places to go, mixing drinks before dinner and going out to get what you need while you are there. Both very friendly and great to have around.

I recommend this place fully.
