  • Vacation of a Lifetime

    "My family of four just returned from what has to be the best vacation we have had. We are timeshare owners and as such have vacationed each year to some very exotic locations with stunning accommodations, however this villa is second to none. Not a single one of the many all-inclusive vacations can compare to what the staff of this villa provide – Tanya is nothing short of a magician when it comes to preparing meals for the guests as well as making sure the villa is absolutely beautiful inside while Narciso does the same to keep the beauty of the grounds and pool equally impressive. Tanya and Narciso are both simply irreplaceable and made sure to make us all feel very special while simultaneously allowing the family the privacy one wouldn’t expect in any resort. Everything about this villa exceeded our expectations. While we have viewed photos of the villa prior to our visit we came to the realization that no photo can possibly do the beauty of this villa justice. Very few places on earth provide both an amazing ocean and mountain view from 3 individual porches/ patios. Nothing short of breathtaking. Gabino was also wonderful and treated us well. He picked us up, took a tour of the villa and left his home number in case of an emergency. Additionally, Gus is an outstanding addition to the package to make sure the guests can do as many activities (or as few) as desired without the pressure the one finds during vacations at most resorts. Prior to our trip I fully expected to be able to provide the owners with recommendations for improvement and there is only one I can provide – don’t change a thing. This is a vacation we will remember fondly the rest of our lives and we will undoubtedly compare this trip to each of our future vacations. Thank you for sharing your beautiful Dominican home with us. Not only would we recommend it, we’ve already given information to friends and family member."

  • A Slice of Heaven on Earth!

    "My wife and I made our first trip to the DR and couldn't have picked a better spot to relax and experience the culture. If you want to get away from it all, this is the place. Patrick was great to work with from start to finish and Coco became our instant friend. We miss his smile along with the warm tropical breezes and the cool dips in the pool. The only downside was we didn't stay longer. We'll be back. Next time, two weeks!"

  • Beautiful condo in great location! Highly recommend!

    "Just returned from a fabulous week at Stanza Mare, G305. Dec 2015. We were greeted by the kind and happy property managers for this unit, Linda and Vincente. The condo was spotless- much prettier and brighter than the photos online. I was very happy! All updated and decorated nicely and the entire complex, grounds and pool were clean and safe. Linda had arranged our ride from the airport which was very prompt and very convenient! We could walk to restaurants, markets, and most importantly, the beach was just steps away as you can see from the photos. We were so thankful that we cancelled the over priced all-inclusive resort reservation that we originally made because at those places, you have to take a golf cart or very long walk to beach and eat their not so good food. But here, at Stanza Mare, our room was perfect and we could walk everywhere! This unit has an updated kitchen with long bar that opens up to the dining area and living area, bathrooms were nice and clean. The balcony has a great view of the ocean, tall palm trees and nice breeze for breakfast and all day long! A/C and Wi-Fi worked great! No negatives at the condo or beach! We were a little disappointed in the snorkeling tours in this area and if we had more time, we may have gone to Caribbean side for calmer waters and tried to find less touristy tours! We snorkeled with El Gringo tour down the beach. The catamaran boat was big enough to have your own space away from others and not get sea sick. However, this tour and most tours only let you snorkel for about 15 minutes or less- we saw pretty fish as we fought the waves ..but then, the tours all take you to a swimming hole where people to stand in the blue water and drink rum with a zillion other party people and loud music which most people like except us. If you prefer snorkeling in remote areas, this is not it. However, outside our condo, good swimming and quiet compared to crowded resorts. We ate at some great restaurants located within a 5 minute stroll -very safe even at night... Don Pio- good Cuban food. Good pizza from Bella Napoli. Citrus was delicious. All of these restaurants were on the same block. No need for a car unless you want to go to other cities to sightsee. Stanza Mare has nice comfy lounge chairs and umbrellas on beach. Perfect peaceful romantic beach vacation! Highly recommend this condo! Thank you!"

  • AGAIN... A WONDERFUL STAY !!!

    "For the second time in a row, we spent 5 weeks in the Dominican Republic. We chose again for the 3 bedroom appartment with garden and private swimmingpool and jaccuzzi of Casa del Lago in the Condo Guavaberry Golf and Country Resort in Juan Dolio. Just as last year, our stay was perfect! The appartment is not only spacious, but very clean, well furnished and practical. Large bedrooms with comfortable beds, airco, and en-suite bathrooms with shower, toilet and all necessary equipment. Cleaning and linnen service once a week. Our host, Magdalena and her right hand Jesus do all they can to make your stay relaxed and make you feel really at home. The swimming pool is kept perfectly clean (also the common, larger swimming pool), and the maintenance of the building and common places is excellent. There is also a small fitnessroom. The view over the golfcourse is great, many birds and butterflies around, and most of all... perfect quietness. Beach (go to Café del sol!) and a lot of nice restaurants (El sueno, El meson, ...) at 5 min drive by car (necessary!). I CAN RECOMMEND this infrastructure STRONGLY to everybody, and we'll be back next year... if all goes well! Thanks to all personnel, it was so nice staying with you, already looking forward to see you again."
