  • Outstanding July week with family, plenty for adults and kids!

    "The Podell's were outstanding to work with from start to finish. The concierge picked us up at the airport (three children 12, 11, 7), and we headed to the supermarket. In 30 minutes we had our necessities for the week and were off to the resort. Upon arrival, we were provided a brief 10-15 minute review of the property (bars/pools/cabanas) and walked up to the condo. We were greeted by Selene(maid) and all groceries were unpacked and luggage was in rooms. Great start to the vacation! Visiting in mid/late July, be aware this is NOT their busy season. This laid back season appealed to us. Within this property, near the marina, we had no crowding issues and easy access to the two best restaurants within walking distance for dinner. The beach at the property was white sand and clear water...seaweed was around but not abundant. We used a different beach at Caleton. The condo was incredible with four bedrooms (2 with 2 queens and 2 with Kings). Tons of space and screened porches. We never saw an insect at the condo! Every room was spotless. The TV in the living room could probably stand to be upgraded, but we watched very little TV during our trip. The condo offers 4 1/2 bathrooms and tons of space. My wife and I had plenty of privacy as the kids loved their own half of the condo! Selene showed up daily and washed towels, dishes, bedding, and cleaned. We didn't utilize her for cooking, etc. as our focus was on being at the beach/pool all day. She was fantastic and every towel and beach toy possible was provided. CapCana offers $3 cab service to any place within CapCana! We utilized their membership and the $3/ten minute ride and used the EdenRoc facilities at Caleton Beach every day. This resort is on par with some of the finest resorts we've ever seen. Pristine beach (think Siesta Key and Turks&Caicos clear), free towels, cabanas, etc. Enormous infinity pools at Eden Roc, cabana service for lunch/drinks, and a nice "pricey" restaurant on site. Service was top notch and the Podell's had our name on the list and we were treated as regulars. Summary: Make friends with a cab/mini van driver and call when needed (we used Clemente for every ride) Prepare for pricier meals on property, normal for resorts. Went to village for Italian at Mamma Luisa's, twice (top 5 Italian ever and half price of IL Cappuccino on site) U.S. Currency works fine, just know the conversion. Scape Park, just do ZipLine and head back to beach. -D&A , Ohio"

  • Very nice place to stay near Cabarete

    "We had arranged for pick up at the airport with a 1/2 hour stop at grocery store for $40. Arranged with property management. This was well worth it. Our flight was delayed but our taxi driver was still there patiently waiting for us. His English wasn't the best but we have been to the DR before and are able to communicate small talk. When we got to the property, Management walked us over to our Villa. What a beautiful place! We had everything we NEEDED to enjoy our time (except a BBQ brush but from reading the previous review it seems maybe it was taken out of the villa in error. No big deal...) We had 2 safes we could use, air conditioning, washing machine (which worked great), dishwasher (we did not use we do our own dishes). There was a big binder with all kinds of information on restaurants or tours to do in Cabarete as well as a guest book to sign. Everything worked fine in the villa. Power did go out a few times but only lasted a couple of minutes each time. This villa is on the main floor, the bedroom is near the parking lot and yes you can hear some of the local traffic however this did not bother us at all if air is on you hear nothing.The pool & ocean is a short walking distance which i found very convenient. The property & villa were very well maintained. Actually after walking the beach i really thought the Victoria Condo was one of the best maintained property on the beach. Bright and colorful, nice palm trees etc..It is a very quiet place with few other tourist where you can choose to chat with or you can keep to yourself and not feel obligated to make new friends. The choice is yours. Property managers were on site however never bothered us unless we had questions. We tried to locate Martini's by the beach but the sign was small and we missed it. It is about a 5 minute walk to the right of the beach, if you take the road go left... nice place to enjoy a drink and great food! We did walk to town for groceries at Janet's ( we had brought a small back pack cooler) the walk was about 15 minutes and we enjoyed it. Not much room on sidewalk. We went out in the evening and walked home at dark around 10 pm. We didn't feel that our safety was at risk however there isn't much lighting therefore i suggest you take a taxi to return home. I loved this little villa, great price, nice view and perfect place to relax. Thank you for sharing your little piece of paradise with us. We do plan on returning in few years and looking forward to relax time!"

  • Amazing Villa in Amazing Place

    "We had really great time in Villa Celeste. The place is in a great shape, well maintained and groomed. People are very nice and helpful including housekeeping, security, drivers. Definitely recomend in-house cooking option, just don't forget to learn a bit of Spanish to get the most of it :) The beach is just a few steps from the villa, very clean and very private. The only thing to be aware is that the tide is quite strong so be careful especially if with young children. Thank you!"
