We enjoyed our stay. The staff was wonderful! We spoke very little Spanish yet the staff was helpful
This was our first trip to the Dominican Republic. We made our own experience by going on our own and relying on some local help. The language barrier was difficult yet we met all friendly people during our week stay. I was very nervous for our safety because of the poverty yet we experienced no beggars only smiling faces. The condo was very relaxing and the staff brought out us rum and decks of cards plus many miscellaneous items. The condo supplies were good however I would recommend grocery shopping the day you arrive. We came in late and woke up to zero food and water. Or pack accordingly. The accommodations were clean apon arrival and they washed our towels when we left. We ate several times at the restaurant next door and that was nice to have handy. We ordered pizza several times pool side and drinks from next door. It was quite and relaxing. The WiFi worked, tv channels were limited and would have love to have brought some movies. As a whole we had a very good time. We have only stayed at all inclusive places if you are not self reliant this is not the place for you. We drove and did many excursions. Many people would not be comfortable doing such with no speed limits nor regulations you see elsewhere. Not for the faint of heart. It would be good if their was more up dated material for activities for families and couples to go to. It would be nice to have a clearer taxi service in a safe vehicle. Yikes, it was a couple of scary rides in a small seatbeltless, no window rolling down, gas fumed car. Overall my teen daughters 17-19 loved the trip and enjoyed four wheeling and Flintstones cave dune buggy ride. We enjoyed our stay but have many friends that could not handle the adventure of this country because of the poverty and language barrier.
Thanks for your review! I am glad you enjoyed your stay. As you said this is a different experience from the all inclusive resort and allows you to enjoy the local culture a bit more. I hope to have you back soon!
The apartment at Juan Dolio was mostly positive with a few negatives. The positives were: the view, the beautiful well kept grounds, the swimming pool and the staff at Aqua Loft. The negatives are mainly because we have stayed at a VRBO in St. John USVI that is so amazing that it makes it hard to live up to. The apartment at Juan Dolio did not provide any basic supplies such as salt, pepper, paper towels and toilet paper. It took us awhile to figure out the air conditioning and the hot water. Also the ocean was not very clear so snorkeling was not an option and the surrounding neighborhood feels run down.
Thanks four your review. I just came back from the condo and all the AC units and water heater are running fine. They received scheduled maintenance a couple of weeks before your arrival. I will ask the guys to check them again. I am sorry about the rough ocean. 95% of the time it is very calm and the water is crystal clear, you can see the bottom of the ocean while swimming.
A large condo with a nice view
The sea was great . The people in the house were very helpful.
Some things had to be done in the condo. Against the sun there had to be some awhangs fixed.
The bathrooms are very dark and the water in the shower can not rinse
The mattress had to be softer. A toaster and a waterkettle is missing.
Thanks for your review and recommendations. The apartment now has a water kettle and toaster
Beautiful Condo and Great Service
Let's start by saying Manuel was incredibly responsive. Every email and question was answered quickly and completely. The condo was exactly as shown in the photos. Spectacular view from the main room and even a view from the showers! The beach, pool and grounds were impeccably cared for with plenty of lounge chairs and tables. Note that for us, it was important to have shady areas of which there were plenty. Finally, the kitchen was well equipped and it even had a quality gas grill on the balcony. All in all, a very nice rental!
LOVE Love Love IT
This Place was Really Nice, front desk and security people were THE BEST EVER. It only costs 2 bucks to take the bus into Santo Domingo, great trip- just try to leave town by 5 so it's still light getting back. And remember Where the bus drops you off in Town .. when our bus from Santo Domingo dropped us off, after our day trip, Far from our stop In The DARK... Billy the Security guy showed up outta no where, to get us home safely... . The Apartment felt fresh and roomy (sleeps 8). gas stove, fridge, pots pans, dishes ,beach towels . bring your own shampoo & rinse. The beach is super secluded NO Tourists, we saw less than 10 humans the first 4 days, mostly locals , horse back ride people (10-15 $) . I also got a massage on the beach ($35- one hour )
Weekends (sat sun)The locals come over. They are polite and well mannered , Otherwise,This place is Quiet,Secluded & Peaceful, warm blue waters, pretty beach, tropical Breeze.The bunk beds are more comfy than the 2 queen beds...Day ONE...Our 12 year old ran into a Rock on the shore & stubbed his toe, really bad, lots of blood. This was our First experience with Billy the Security Guard Who Came to the Rescue, he carried our boy from the beach to the Lobby , applied Dominican numbing ointment & bandage. Billy The Security Guy Is Our Dominican Super Hero !!!! but seriously , please, especially the kids. WEAR WATER SHOES @ The Beach. I wore flip flops but for kids who run and can be distracted WEAR WATER SHOES . Manuel the Owner was Super communicative and Helpful . about boating excursions to another island for 50-75 $ per person.there are Laundry machines downstairs . BRING a couple laundry soap pods for yourself... there is good water dispenser in apt. and you can refill at front desk for 2 $.there is a way to make the TV be in English... ( my husband figured it out) there is a BBQ on the balcony. the front desk arranged a taxi who took us into town for groceries and Bank..$ 35 he accompanied us to both and we ate pizza with him at dominoes..( they eat chicken & corn Pizza).I know..ICK My husband was a good sport he ate some ... I slipped away for some coconut frozen yogurt..Rueben one of the friendliest front desk guys ever , just happens to be the artist of the Lobby paintings .... we brought home some of his work to remember our trip by. Over all THIS was one of the Best places we have been to . if you appreciate a Quiet secluded vacation without a lot of Noisy drunk tourists , This is the place.
Hi Lucy. Thanks for your great review. I didn´t get the chance to meet you in person but the guys at the front desk already miss you. I hope to have you back soon!
We felt home at once!
After a long trip from Europe with 3 kids, we arrived at Aqua Loft in the evening. We were welcomed by helpful staff and entering the apartment we immediately felt home. The apartment is well furnished, more than complete and kids friendly. The view is indeed spectacular and never bores. The facilities on the ground are also perfect: the swimming pool, the jacuzzi, the gym. If we wanted to order something from the local pizzeria or 'colmado' (corner shop), the staff helped us out!
We stayed for 2 weeks and Aqua Loft was our base for doing some day trips and visiting family. During our stay we have been in contact with Manuel and he as well has been very helpfull. For our next trip to the Dominican Republic, we want to come back to Aqua Loft!
Thanks for your review Tom! I am so happy you enjoyed your stay. I hope to have you back soon!
