Beautiful and well appointed apartment, with the Malecon and the ocean right at your doorstep. Air conditioning and wifi all worked great, and the owner left some juice, milk, cereal and bread out for us, which was very much appreciated, since we got in a bit late.
There was a minor problem with the electricity to the apartment one day (on Christmas Eve!), but the owner worked extremely hard to get an electrician out the same day to fix the problem. I was very impressed that the owner cared enough to get this done. Getting an electrician out on Christmas Eve in Santo Domingo could not have been easy. Overall, she was very responsive, and took care of everything.
Building security was very good. You need a keycard to get into the building, and a remote control to access the garage (the apartment includes a garage space, if you have - or rent - a car). There is a security guard on duty most times.
The apartment comfortably sleeps 5. There are two bedrooms with double beds, and an alcove off of the living room with a sofa/futon. The balcony is quite large, and the ocean view is awesome.
There is a parking lot across the street (by the ocean) where several food trucks set up in the evening every day. They actually put out tables, play music and have menus. The food is actually pretty good, and the biggest food truck makes a really good pina colada! Oceanfront dining at its finest!
Overall, a really good experience, and would definitely recommend.
