Recent Las Terrenas reviews

  • Beautiful!

    "Our family had a wonderful vacation at Balcones del Atlantico. The condo is immaculate. The furnishings are very tasteful and comfortable. The outdoor living space is incredible and so well appointed! I loved spending the entire vacation outside enjoying the beautiful weather! Dr. Garcia was wonderful - she was very responsive and easy to work with! The condo is near the back of the complex, which is much more peaceful (there is a small road between the complex and the beach so I could see how that could be noisy). One of the pools is just a few steps outside the condo and there was rarely anyone swimming. My kids loved having it mostly to themselves! My only complaint is that a few times there were other units playing music loudly on their balconies. We stayed over New Years Eve, which can understandably be louder than usual, and the security is responsive to any complaints. After the holiday, it quieted down, and I will admit I am more sensitive than most to loud music. The staff on the property were very courteous and the gardens and pool are very well maintained. Chela, the unit's housekeeper was so pleasant and does a wonderful job. She was very patient with us as we tried to speak Spanish. Porto restaurant is gorgeous and we enjoyed eating there several nights. It was very nice to have the restaurant on the property just a short walk away and right on the beach! Fantastic cocktails and meals!"

  • Ruhige Tage im tropschen Garten

    "Eigentlich bewerte ich das Nachbarhaus, da Casa Lea wegen eines Schadens am Pool nicht genutztwerden konnte. Paul hat uns vor der Ankunft informiert und uns das Nachbarhaus gegeben, welches etwas größer ist. Vom Konzept her sind beide gleich. Das Haus liegt in einem schön angelegten Garten und war erst vor kuzem neu gestrichen worden. Man merkt an Pflege und Ausstattung, dass der Eigentümer hier auch selbst Urlaub macht. Die Restauranttipps von Verwalter Fred waren top - selten so gute Ravioli wie im LaTerassa gegessen! Einziger Kritikpunkt ist die Postion des Wachmanns, der ab 19 Uhr kommt. Er sass immer auf der anderen Seite des Pools, weshalb wir ihn erst für 22 Uhr bestellt haben, dami er nur zu Schlafenszeit da ist. Hier sollte ein Unterschlupf für den Wachmann geschaffen werden, wo man ihn nicht ständig sieht. Insgesammt ist das Haus sehr zu empfehlen."

  • Peaceful, relaxing vacation

    "What a peaceful, beautiful vacation! Chela the housekeeper made this vacation, 5 stars! How spoiled we felt by her! We truly appreciated her!! The condo is exactly true to the photos, the property grounds are manicured meticulously! My daughter enjoyed the jacuzzi daily. The beach was just stunning, calm and clear. The only outting we made the whole week was to Samana Ziplines- amazing! Only tip- make sure you plan on exchanging money @ airport to pay for toll roads-they do not accept American $$."

  • Run to this place now, don't walk!

    "We had a fabulous stay at this beautiful house in April. We were two families of five with six children ranging from 10 to 15. From the very start this was a very easy vacation to plan. Dominique was quick in her responses to us no matter what the inquiry. Everything worked seamlessly from transportation to and from the airport, being informed by the house manager, reserving day trips, and organizing our meals. We didn't want to stay in an all-inclusive resort and this definitely fit the bill. Everything was done for us but we didn't have the throngs of people, had our own private house and pool, and had a fun area to explore. The large number of French people residing there gives Las Terrenas a pleasant vibe of mixing cultures. Many Europeans and Canadians vacation there as well so it felt off the beaten path, which is exactly what we were trying to find. We felt very safe and let the kids walk to and from the house and the beach by themselves. We did not rent an ATV or car but found that we really didn't need one. We could easily walk to town and the beach and if we didn't want to walk, for $2 we jumped on the back of one of the many motorcycle taxis that were zooming around. We had Wendy and her lovely assistant prepare breakfast and dinner for us and paid a little extra to have them do the shopping. This was the best decision of the week. With 10 people it was cheaper and easier than going out all the time, dealing with the shopping, and pleasing the many personalities Wendy and Lady put out a feast that was AMAZING. It was so relaxing sitting around the pool or living room while someone else took care of the shopping, the cooking, and the dishes. Wendy and Lady also cleaned everyday and made the beds. We lived like royalty and enjoyed every minute. The house was large and comfortable with room to spread out. We used Flora Tours to do a day trip to Los Haitises and the three beaches. Both tours were easy to reserve and ran like clockwork. We hired a Flora Tour driver to take us to Playa Coson to spend the whole day there and then he brought us back. It was a very pretty beach with a good restaurant (Casa Luis). We also loved Sol y Mar for afternoon munchies at the end of the road in Playa Bellenas and went to the Borracho Taco every night for sunset relaxation. We could not have been happier and would go back in a heartbeat! Everyone was friendly, helpful and it was muy relaxing!"
