About the property

Truly one of the most remarkable tropical beach locations, Playa Bonita boasts a mix of quiet and fun among its white sand, changing surf, remote coves and lofty palms. Here you can surf, paddle board, snorkel, swim or take a lazy walk along the beach and boardwalk. You may just want to sit and relax. The Caribbean/European style boutique hotels and restaurants will please your palate and quench your thirst without breaking your wallet. All this within a short walk of our gated community aptly named Playa Bonita Beach Residences.

A new condominium, tastefully decorated, air conditioned (fan only in coral bedroom), 2 portable de-humidifiers, WIFI, Sky TV (2), dishwasher, filtered refrigerated water and ice maker, microwave, coffee/espresso maker, washer/dryer, gas BBQ on patio, beach towels and chairs, safe, common area infinity swimming pool and much more await your arrival.

The master bedroom, great room, and patio all face beautifully landscaped tropical gardens and the Atlantic blue-green ocean waves. Warm sea breezes, the sounds of the surf, the view: spectacular!

Come sit on the patio and eat fish that you caught and grilled yourself that day while soaking in the lush beauty that is Playa Bonita. The center of Las Terrenas (the closest town) is approximately 2 miles. In town, you can choose from a variety of cosmopolitan or Dominican eateries, shop, purchase fresh fish daily at Pescaderia, meet locals and people from everywhere. Special excursions might include an ATV tour through the countryside and coffee plantations, horseback riding to the waterfall at El Limon or whale watching from Samana in the late winter/early spring. The more adventurous might may their way to Playa Rincon and Las Galeras. Try El Cabito for food and drink overlooking boisterous waves and blow holes matched only by an amazing and colorful sunset.

Fly into Samana International Airport (El Catay) (AZS) and you are 12 miles (about twenty minutes) from Playa Bonita. Santo Domingo International Airport (Aeropuerto Internacional de las Americas) (SDO) is 83 miles or a 1 hour and 45 minute drive to Playa Bonita on a new, well-maintained highway.

Great property with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time and the condo was amazing! Toni and Andrea were excellent to work with and they helped make our vacation enjoyable. It's rare that you go on vacation and everything works out perfectly but in this case it did. This has to be one of the best condos to rent around the area. If we vacation there again, this is the only place we would stay.

Thanks Jeri for opening your beautiful home to my Family.

Relaxation Oasis, Family Friendly !

  • 5 of 5

Spectacular condo. Gated. Beachfront. Beautifully decorated. Comfortable beds. Large sliding doors to open and hear the ocean. Calm surf for swimming, beginner surfing, boogie board. The condo complex has kayaks and surfboards to borrow free of charge. Location at the end of the beach. Free beachfront lounge chairs. Beach towels. Laundry. Modern kitchen. Andrea comes every morning (included in stay) to clean and cook breakfast ! (You provide the food.) She's friendly, helpful, kind. We cooked lunch and dinner most days. Location is beautiful, great for picture taking ! Be sure to walk the short paved path along the beach to the restaurants. Safe. Security guards all around condo complex and along the paved path at other hotels. Great shell collecting. The pool is lovely and new. Kiddie pool also. Our kids ran from ocean to pool to condo all day ! They had a blast ! We had plans to go to sightseeing, but stayed in everyday except for one day because it's so great ! The town is small, crowded but cute with shops, ice cream, bakeries. Thank you for a relaxing vacation !

Beautiful, family friendly, safe and clean

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Playa Bonita Residences with 4 children 7 to 12 yrs.

The condo is immediately on the best part of a spectacular beach. The condo is clean appliances TV's AC etc are all in great condition. The pool, hot tub, kiddie pool and poolside bar are a great place to relax and within 30 second walk.

The security guards are friendly and on watch 24 hours a day, it's a safe place but the added security allowed another level of relaxation!

The most amazing added feature is the housekeeper, Andrea, who can shop, drive you to town, cook, clean and give advice on where to find best snorkelling.

We surfed every day and walked around point to find clear water for snorkelling. Lunch at Atlantis Hotel is well worth the money.

Management was quick to respond to questions and accountable for issues etc. They were even able to arrange pick up to and from airport for our large family with luggage etc.

Exceeded my high expectations!

  • 5 of 5

When I booked this property, I knew there had to be a catch. Who gets price, location and quality?? But we got all three and more. The condo was well-appointed for cooking and playing. Our housekeeper Andrea cooked breakfast every day, shopped with us and cooked three great dinners, plus keeping the place spotless. Every morning we opened the huge sliding glass doors onto a sea of perfect green grass leading to a perfect beach. There is a fabulous new 30m pool with baby pool. The first night we walked a few doors down to a fish restaurant. SO easy. Don't miss Luis at Coson, Atlantis Hotel at Playa Bonita and One Love in Las Terranas. Get over to Cabarete to see the kite surfing. I will return. Driving is not for the faint of heart.

This place was great; gorgeous waterfront views and a very laid-back atmosphere. We came for a week but could've stayed so much longer! The condo was well equipped with everything we needed, and the proximity to so many great little restaurants and beach coves enabled us to walk just about anywhere. On the rare occasions when we were able to leave this excellent location, town is bustling with more great restaurants and the strip in Las Terrenas was well worth a visit or two.

Beachfront paradise for all ages and interests

  • 5 of 5

A recipe for vacation enjoyment: first ingredient - an outstanding location with beauty, convenience and activities for all; second - a comfortable, well- appointed living space; finally - helpful and attentive service. This wonderful vacation condo has it all. We've stayed in a number of tropical beach locations. This condo ranks high on our list of favorites. Our requirements for a perfect beach vacation may not suit everyone but many readers looking for a great beach vacation might do well to end their search here. Pictures and words help you visualize but do not capture the full experience. I will add mine so that you might have a better sense why we so highly recommend the beachfront condo at Playa Bonita. First the location: we like to be near - if not right on the ocean. Too close has problems; lack of privacy, potential for unwanted noise, lack of shade, etc. This condo is set back enough to avoid these issues but still close enough for easy access. You are surrounded by lush vegetation and beautiful views of swaying palms, sand and water. You hear the sound of the surf but you are not overwhelmed by it. The beach itself has a most pleasing shape. There is a stone path above the sand leading to a fine selection of beachfront restaurants. The beach itself is walkable for long distances. It is sandy with some wave action but usually protected enough for small children. The condo itself has everything you need for living and sleeping comfort as well as the potential for preparing and enjoying simple or elaborate meals. There is an abundance of linens including plenty of beach towels. Finally, staff is available for your every need. The manager makes sure you have everything to begin your vacation. Your personal helper attends to the housekeeping chores. On request she will cook a typical Caribbean meal. The grounds are well-maintained by a pleasant and hardworking ground crew. Additional staff provides 24 hour security. I cannot conclude this review without mentioning that, at the time of our visit, the pool and club house were not open. I sincerely believe this will soon be corrected as there is a beautiful large pool on the property and a clubhouse soon to be completed. The lack of these facilities did not bother us as the ocean was so inviting and our unit well suited to our needs. The beachfront at Playa Bonita is sure to create wonderful vacation memories.

Owner's Response: Just a note of correction-the beautiful, infinity pool is open for use. I have personally enjoyed it immensely many times. The clubhouse is under construction nearby (which I think created this mis-understanding) so please be careful and swim at your own risk. At the time of my last visit on February 8, the children's pool and the jacuzzi were finished, but closed (temporarily). I will give you the updated status upon request.
