  • 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 We were so thankful that we cancelled the over priced all-inclusive resort reservation that we originally made because at those places, you have to take a golf cart or very long walk to beach and eat their not so good food.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!"

  • Gorgeous!

    "I had the pleasure of staying a few nights with friends at this gorgeous home away from home, and I would highly recommend it if you are planning a trip to Las Galeras for three reasons. One, The location can't be beat! It's set back a ways from town, so it's peaceful and quiet, but it lies right next to one of the best secrets in Samana, and the highlight of our trip... an amazing hike to Playa Rincon, one of the top rated beaches in the Caribbean! This hike is a must do in Las Galeras! Two, Leonel and Catherine were so helpful! Leonel was our chef, guide, security, and even schooled us in a few rounds of dominoes. The food was amazing (request his hummus; it's better than some Greek restaurants I've been to!), and his attentiveness was unbeatable. He made our experience unique and fun! And Catherine, the owner of the property, was incredibly helpful. She gave us great advice about what to do around town and made us feel at home in her house. It was as if we had the inside scoop on Las Galeras. Definitely not something you get with just any property. It was fabulous! And three, the house is super comfortable and homey. There are several different room options, so it's perfect for a big group traveling together, and all of the common spaces give you the room to be together as a group, as well as the space to spread out and take time to relax and enjoy the Caribbean pace of life. I would definitely go back and hope to soon!!"

  • Peaceful and beautiful!

    "Such a beautiful spot! Quiet and secluded. The pool was very nice and the grounds were lovely. Gorgeous views from the patio and the pool. I saw one of the best sunsets from the beach. Carmin made me one of the best pina coladas I've ever had. The beach isn't the best for swimming and you need a car, there really isn't anything in walking distance. The people were so nice and helpful. The place was well stocked with towels and linens(although a few could be replaced) It could also be stocked with a few staples such as hand soap and salt and pepper. The air conditioners were noisey, but so nice to have. Overall we really enjoyed our stay here."
