  • 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 place & best staff ever!

    "This was our 2nd time staying at Villa de la Sirenas and we absolutely love it! This is our home away from home. We returned to this peaceful place to celebrate our 10year wedding anniversary and spend time with family. Wow what a great decision. We were 6 adults and 2 children and everyone had a great time. I can't say enough about how amazing the house is, but most especially how amazing the staff is. They are like family and took care of us so well. This place will always be the place for us to go when we need a getaway and be pampered. Wish we could have prolonged our trip. We hope to make many more memories at this place in the future. Thanks Brian and Patsy for opening your doors and welcoming us into your paradise. Love The Christ Family"

  • Best in Costambar!

    "We have been in Costambar over six weeks at Luisa's condos. It is by far the best place to stay in the area as it has a beautifull, well kept private pool, close to the beach, close to shopping and restaurants, and is very clean and quiet. There is a beautiful lagoon close by with birds and flamingos! The staff go above and beyond for their guests and as our first time in the Dominican, our stay has been effortless. My husband and I travel a great deal using VRBO, and this condo and the kindness and generosity of the owner Luisa, has been by far our best experience to date. Thank you to Luisa, Ramona, and Jairo. Liz and Glenn from Canada"

  • Reasonably priced beautiful spacious home in a great location

    "The home is super spacious and even better than what is pictured. Location is great! About a 7 minute walk to the nearby beach that has shops, places to get food and drinks. About a 10 minute drive to the city center. About 45 minutes to nearby town Sosua. 15 minutes from the Puerto plata airport and 1.5 hrs from STI. There is a queen sized bed in each room and there is a bathroom in each room so you can comfortably fit 10-12 ppl in this home. Bedrooms are on the 1st and 3rd floors and there are AC units in each room and throughout the house. I don't think the house has a water heater as the running water was never hot..it was slightly warm most times. The pool area looks just as pictured really nice :). The area was pretty safe but we didn't test it out too much besides walking to and from the beach we were on the property or driving to another destination. However the property is gated and includes the main house, pool house and small quarters where the housekeepers stay which is the best part of this house! Anna one of the housekeepers is the sweetest little Dominican woman.She will clean the pool in the morning, the dishes in the sink and will even cook a traditional Dominican meal if you provide her with the groceries. She speaks No English but it is part of the experience and she will literally do whatever she can to make sure "todo es bien" :) I went with a group of (7) 25 yr olds and we had a blast and cried when we had to leave, she was like our mother while we were there. Barbara the home owner was very responsive which is what reeled me in. I ask several questions about the property and she answered right away each time via text and email. She even got me in touch with a cab driver Israel who ended up being our driver the entire time we were out there and he took very good care of us and gave us really good rates! The only con was on our first night there we did find a couple insects in some of the rooms but after the first night it was not an issue. Not a big enough deal for me not to go back. If i ever return to Puerto Plata I will definitely stay in Barbara's house, it was a great experience overall for a great price!"
