  • Luxury to rival (beat?) Sandals Resorts

    "Resort was huge, but we were prepared for that. What we weren't prepared for was how it actually looked like or better than the pictures! John and Drake were both dreams to work with and this was our first time booking not through a travel agent, so we needed some hand holding. Everything went smoothly, driver was waiting at airport for us, and absolutely no surprises or disappointments with the accommodations. We had a problem with a backed up toilet whe we first arrived and called maintenance, but then managed to fix it ourselves before they arrived. Managed to get reservations at all of the restaurants I wanted, just took visiting with our concierge daily which was only a few minutes and on our way anyway. Food was amazing and more restaurants onsite than you can possibly try in a week. Many beaches, each one filled with beach beds and never a problem getting one. We stayed in a 2 bedroom Crown Suite Penthouse (#7) which was right by the pool with a pool bar and the pool was deserted most of the day ... felt like we owned the place! Only fly in the ointment were the tenacious salespeople who are NOT deterred with a polite no thank you (I had to be more forceful), but that is not a reflection on John or Drake. If we come back to this resort as we trying to convince our extended family to do, there is no one else I'd rather book through. Thank you for the wonderful vacation experience."

  • Amazing Rental!

    "The vacation property was awesome! We did manage to get the 6-bedroom that we requested and the grounds surpassed our expectations! We never did get a golf cart but honestly didn’t feel like we needed one. We’re walkers and rather enjoyed touring the resort on foot anyhow. The inside of the villa could be updated but the grounds were amazing; huge and wonderfully landscaped… and the ocean view absolutely so pleasantly surprised to be right on the VIP Beach, which was a great amenity as our 7 kids basically spent the entire week either in the private pool or the ocean. The cleaning staff and breakfast cooks were really great; though getting enough beer and water stocked was sometimes challenging (though not a big deal). From a booking perspective, the only surprise was the exit fee from the Dominican (20$/person) over and above the 10$/person entry fee . Every other cost was exactly as stated on the website so we were able to properly budget for the trip. Reed and Lisa were extremely helpful in facilitating our reservation, answering all our questions and then checking in to see how we enjoyed our stay. Would definitely recommend this villa!"

  • Great Place to Stay!

    "This apartment, is part of three 6 unit buildings called the Seabreeze, and had most of what we needed for our 4 week stay in Costambar. We are from Canada and booked this apartment based on the description in VRBO plus questions that our hosts Shawn and Charo, answered quickly and accurately. We like to cook and the kitchen amenities were fine however, the kitchen could use some additional lighting and some newer pots and pans. The appliances were all modern and in good working order. Internet and Wifi were included in the price.The decor was modern and in good condition. There were screens on all the windows and a large ceiling fan in both the living room and the bedroom!!! We suggest adding a screen door in order to ensure additional air flow. The apartment did come with air conditioning which we never used. The living room couch was very comfortable for watching TV or curling up with a book. There is hot water for showering!! The King size bed was very comfortable and the curtains darkened the room sufficiently and provided privacy. I appreciated the abundance of storage space for our clothes in the bedroom, including a wall safe. Our host made sure we had fresh linens and towels every week; and provided us with a thorough cleaning upon request. There were cleaning supplies on hand so I could clean in the interim. We spent a lot of time on the balcony which included 2 Adirondack chairs. Our hosts Shawn and Charo were amazing! Only a phone call or email away when we needed anything and yes, they responded quickly and our needs were met. Of note, no back up when the power goes out which does happen - Shawn did provide us with candles for these occasions however, no power=no Internet. This apartment was part of a small complex of 12 like-apartments that surrounded a large swimming pool and a beautiful garden. The pool was well maintained and we used it daily. This complex is steps away from the beach, the golf course, the health and fitness centre and several excellent dining locations. (Our favorite, being L'Oase - Sam's Bar and Grill.) There are two small grocery stores in Costambar and one delivers which was so convenient for us since we didn't rent a vehicle. We met wonderfully kind people in Costambar; initially at the El Catamaran Beach Bar and Restaurant, that Shawn recommended for us to try. We enjoyed the food there and making new friends. The people in our complex were all awesome too. We definitely recommend this apartment! :)"
