What an amazing stay at Ultravioleta! The condo was fully furnished...love love love the aesthetic...super clean, very modern. Definitely felt like it was the best property in the area. A great kitchen which made it easy for us to cook with my wife and 1yr old baby stay. Simple and cute restaurants nearby - my favorites were Gorditos (walking distance) for fresh fish tacos and La Casita De Papi for great shrimp and lobster.
The best part for me is how close you are to the beach and how easy it is to go kitesurfing - just pay one of the local boys to pump your kite and set up your lines for $3 USD and you are up and riding in no time. Wind was great when we there and most were riding 8m and 10m kites.
The drive from the airport is 15mins...we flew from the Northeast direct to Puerto Plata which took 3.5hrs from JFK
Staff is super friendly and helpful and the owner was extremely nice. Anything we needed - a baby high chair or blender to make some baby food, they brought to our apartment.
Can't wait to go back!
