PHOTOGRAPHS ALL TAKEN NOV 2017 Over 3000 sq ft one of the largest condos with 3 spacious bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms, all luxuriously furnished. LARGE TERRACE. Patio furniture to enjoy lounging and dining outside, new gas BBQ. Gated access directly to poolside, private beach and gardens. Every attention to detail to ensure a luxurious and special holiday. VIP meet and greet directly from your plane, through immigration to awaiting luxury car, via local super market to the door of your holiday home. Personalised holiday tours, sports and recreational itinerary. Daily maid service when using 3 bedrooms. Professional chef to come to the condo to cook to your personal taste. Enjoy traditional Spanish paella, French cuisine or local caught fish cooked in your own home. We purposely chose imported European furniture as the heavy wood furniture more commonly used tends to be not comfortable and looks less than fresh after a very short period of time. We have given the Caribbean flavor by adding lots of colorful local art. Particularly advantageous is the peace and quiet of this location. The poolside attendants will provide a cushion for your sun bed. The beach is totally private and there are no vendors pestering you, this happens all the time at other locations including the most exclusive hotels. Snorkels, beach toys and BBQ added to ensure full enjoyment. Don’t confuse quality with other nearby locations. PUNTA PALMERA half left as a building site, very little beach area and unkept. FISHING LODGE and ALSOL no beach area, 45 min walk to AQUAMARINA side. SOTOGRANDE CAP CANA half is Alsol controlled all inclusive and out on a limb. GOLDEN BEAR may have sea views but nowhere near the beach. ALL INCLUSIVES are fine for teenagers or 20s but do you really want poor quality food, substandard drinks, kids drinking shots in the pool for hours at a time getting drunk. Our condo is for families and adults wanting a quality, tranquil beach holiday with luxury, security and peace. If you book in advance we will remain in contact with you before and during your holiday, always available to answer any queries. Feel free to ask as many questions as you like, we are here to ensure your holiday with us is the best yet! Communication is the key!

About James & Sandra
Living in southern Spain and travel all over the world. Found this bit of paradise some years ago and love coming back time and time again. The children love the freedom that the security at Cap Cana gives them. Scape Park and their VIP Beach at Juanillo provide great entertainment for all the family, including assorted water sports, zip lines, dune buggy rides, nature trails, cycle hikes etc. Our children have so many friends from Cap Cana which they keep in contact with on Facebook. The weather is always a comfortable heat and Cap Cana in particular has very few poor weather days in a year. Put simply we find it a perfect holiday spot. The main words to describe are safe, secure and private. This is a quiet location.
James & Sandra purchased this Condo in 2010
Why James & Sandra chose Cap Cana Marina
Direct access with no lifts and no stairs was a criteria not only for small children but thinking of adults wanting to return to the condo throughout the day for a drink, a meal, a book etc. Being able to walk out at night safely and not to far in high heals to go out for dinner. Teens being able to just go to the nightclub without being worried about their security. Luxurious facilities including the gym, golf, spa etc. Lovely shopping malls with all excellent brands and quality. Just a short 5 minute drive from the International Punta Cana airport. This airport is connected with many major cities in the US, direct flights from South American continent and fabulous connections from all over Europe. PRIVATE BEACH FACILITIES, no sellers!
What makes this Condo unique
Totally unique is that only our ground floor condo has direct access to the beach from the terrace and water views (marina and beach) from every room. I loved decorating the property with a modern look importing most of the furniture from Europe. Having experience of renting out other properties I knew how important the little additions are like proper hairdryers, safes for valuables, good size walkin showers (unique to our property), plenty of cutlery, glass wear and crockery so you don't have to keep washing up. We offer hotel like service with daily cleaning, cook assistant, concierge service. Everything for you to truly enjoy a relaxing and luxurious holiday. The condo has all details of where to eat, where to visit, all sporting facilities, beauty parlour etc. There is something for everyone at Cap Cana.

This was an absolutely wonderful stay for us in Cap Cana Marina. Let me explain:
We were greeted "inside" the airport by what appeared to be an airport employee - he was able to identify us by photos we had sent. We were escorted through the airport and did not have to wait in any lines!! From there, we felt like royalty as Edward met our group in the parking lot and brought us directly to awaiting vehicles. To us, this was a very important element of our trip because there was a sea of cab drivers, limo drivers and others that we could simply ignore. The trip from the airport to Cap Cana Marina was less than 10 minutes and when we got to unit 512, we had quite the greeting by Edward, Rida and our driver for the week, Davis. The unit was everything and more - very large, spacious and well appointed. It sits directly in front of the pool and the beach beyond. The greeting team walked us through everything and gave us great information on the Marina and surrounding areas. As beautiful as the unit was, Edward and his team were equally splendid and accommodating - we cannot say enough GREAT things about all three of them! We opted not to rent a car and instead utilized Davis as our driver for the week - what a great person, on time, knowledgeable and a great escort. I won't divulge the prices for having Davis at our beckon call all week except to say we were very pleasantly shocked when we settled-up with Edward at the end of the week - you could not rent a car for the price!! Rida was with us every day and while we didn't use her for dinners, she came to make us breakfast and clean - what a treat she is. Suffice to say that Edward has put together a great, reliable and informative team. We could text them at any time and they were there - even running to the store to pick up incidentals. Cap Cana was great and we felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. API Beach was very convenient for food and cocktails!! At the sad end to our stay - Edward and team met us at the unit and after arrival at the airport we were personally escorted to our gate(s) and did not have to wait at all despite the long lines for check in and customs - this was the greatest. We booked Capt. Neil of the Foul Hooker and caught 2 White Marlin, his mates Josh and Luie were fabulous. Ask Edward to book him!!
Start to finish, this was a perfect trip. I would suggest AquaMarina 512 to any of my friends. You will not be disappointed - Sandra, GREAT JOB!!!!!
Thank you for your kind review. We really do have a wonderful team of helpers under the direction of Edward and they all try to ensure our guests have the most memorable holiday. Really look forward to your next visit, do come back soon!
The most incredible place! Oceanfront spectacular!
Exactly as advertised. First class airport transfers. Responsive host, great location and exceptional staff to help with trips, tours and entertainment.
Clean, spacious and maticulously maintained.
I would happily stay again!
Thank you so much for your review. I am so happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed your holiday to the full! We certainly look forward to seeing you again soon.
Loved Cap Cana and the apartment was in a wonderful location. The accommodations are above average, but the manager and Edward are quite accommodating.
Thank you so much for your review and I am so pleased that you and your 3 children all enjoyed your holiday so much at Cap Cana. We look forward to seeing you again next year.
Great views, Good potential but few hiccups 3.5 stars
The owners of this VRBO were very helpful before our stay in Cap Cana and assisted us in the VIP service from the airport (you are greeted outside the airport - not inside as advertised) to Supermarket and to the rental. When we arrived at the lobby it took over 30 minutes to get a key as no-one had called in ahead of time, the lobby or I couldn't get ahold of Edward or the owners but I finally convinced the worker at the front with an email showing my email confirmation from VRBO.com.. I recommend renting a car as this rental is on a very quiet side of Cap Cana and only 2 restaurants are in walking distance. Taxis can be used for the Cap Cana area for a very small fee but I would have preferred to have my own vehicle.
Rida was wonderful coming in at 9 am for us and making breakfast and cleaning quickly - She stays as long as needed but we only requested her for couple hours.
The patio doors to the beach/pool didn't lock correctly and could be opened very easily from the outside. This meant I had to have our valuables with me at all times, they say it's very safe but not taking chances with passports and cash. I told Edward but they were unable to fix the doors before we left so even though we had a 3 bedroom place both my kids slept with me... In another country safety is of the upmost importance and it isn't good enough to be told it's safe, doors should lock, period.
This is my first VRBO experience so wasn't sure what to expect. None of the bathrooms had any hand soaps, there are plenty of towels though so don't waste the luggage space. Be prepared to pick up soaps for 4 bathrooms if you plan on washing hands. Also, pick up toilet paper, napkins and paper towels, trash bags etc...(all necessities)
We also had the owners schedule a photo shoot/commercial on the patio during our stay which was odd and we were assured no one would enter the rental and Rida would be there during. Not sure if they entered but am sure Rida was not there and the patio was in disarray and left for us to clean up. For a luxury rental night I expected more. Besides all the hiccups - location was beautiful, beach stunning, pools were great and apartment was clean. The people of DR are wonderful, happy and very helpful. Would return to this beautiful island, not sure as VRBO
I am really saddened to receive this review and first of all please accept my apologies. I will of course address all these issues. Rapid response to any queries or problems is essential and for this reason in addition to email I ask visitors to communicate with myself Rida and Edward by WhatsApp. Unfortunately, I received nothing from you during or after your visit. The photoshoot was a last minute request and I only agreed to it after being assured management and security would be present throughout and that you were in agreement to it. Being front line to the ocean means extra maintenance and although one lock was showing wear it did still work, however to offer extra peace of mind we have now replaced all locks on the terrace doors. I do apologise but wonder why you didnt complain to me or Edward at the time. We also have a fixed safe for all valuables as well as separate locks on all the inner doors. Hire car can be organized at any time during your holiday. Many people including myself prefer to use taxis whilst on holiday, as well as the internal US$3 taxi service throughout Cap Cana Edward is always on hand to offer a luxury taxi experience as well as being a wealth of local knowledge on where to go. As towels tend to be left on the beach we are unable to supply these and our fine Egyptian cotton bathroom towels are not suitable for this purpose.
Holidays are important and it is our endeavour to create the perfect holiday. I am glad to hear that on the whole you enjoyed your stay and I hope we see you again in the future.
Sandra was so helpful ahead of our stay helping me plan events and restaurants around my mother's birthday celebrations.
The apartment is very spacious and each large bedroom has full ensuite and TV. There is also a cloakroom. The kitchen was pretty well equipped. The view is fantastic and easy access from the patio gate to the pool and beach beyond. API bar a 3 minute walk although occasionally the bar staff come by on bikes to take drinks orders.
Rida, the cleaner was very efficient. The Aquamarina were friendly and generally helpful.
Even at peak New Year it was not that busy and after three days it was very quiet again. Just a shame that there are no restaurants open the the marina area- I guess there are not enough visitors to make opening commercially viable. We enjoyed meals at La Palapa, La Mona, Blue Marlin and the Spanish restaurant at Sanctuary Town. We also hired a chef one evening who cooked for us which was a novel experience and very tasty.
We hope to return in the not to distant future. Thanks very much.
Thank you for your lovely review and I was pleased to be able make your birthday celebrations extra special for your mum. The marina is due to open two new restaurants this year. I guess the manana syndrome has set in and sadly they didn’t open before Christmas as planned. I too hope they open soon, but there are a total of 35 restaurants, bars and cafes open in Cap Cana currently so plenty still to visit. The chef has worked well for a number of our visitors and buying fish off the fishermen at the marina dock side is also a great hit.
I look forward to welcoming you and your family again soon,
Wonderful place for a Family Vacation
We stayed at Cap Cana during the 2017 Christmas break. The unit was lovely but it was the support coming from the owner, Edward, and Rida that made the trip truly outstanding. It you want peace and quiet this place is great and if you want action and fun then this is also great as Cap Cana and overall Punta Cana provide for all of the above. We spent days at the pool and beach and Api's Bar/Grill and we also did a segway eco-tour, took surfing lessons, zip-lined at Scapepark, took a boating excursion as well as went golfing at Punta Espada during our week stay. I highly recommend having Rida come daily to help clean and we really enjoyed having a chef come in for a couple nights when our activities went into the late afternoon. Overall, a beautiful place with lots of to do and outstanding weather. I also enjoyed the work out facility only being 2 doors down from our Aquamarina unit.
Thank you so much John for your kind review. I am so pleased that you and your family enjoyed your Xmas at our beach home, and look forward to welcoming you back soon.
Experience the freedom of renting an apartment with the service and luxury of a hotel vacation. Luxurious spacious accommodation, directly accessing the beach, lake like swimming pool with ornate fountains, hot tubs, showers and sun loungers to relax and enjoy next to one of the worlds finest beach. Cap Cana especially offers total peace of mind with complete security throughout the resort. Am often asked about car hire, if you are planning to go out at night and especially away from Cap Cana then I would recommend. If you want a quiet holiday, totally restful and no hassle of car preferring to use taxis then why not wait until you arrive and see if you need a car and we will help to organize one.
