This penthouse at Balcones del Atlantico in Las Terrenas is spectacular! The apartment surpassed our expectations, everything was immaculate and well decorated. Balcones is very nice (resort style, beautiful gardens, swimming pool, etc) and the beach is beautiful! I recommend to rent a car or a four wheel at Terrenas to move around. There are supermarkets in the village to buy groceries and also there are plenty of restaurants to eat but are not at a distance that you can walk from Balcones (only one restaurant at Balcones). This is better since Balcones is more private and away from the noise and activity of the village or "Pueblo de los Pescadores" (Fishermen's village is how the locals call the heart of the village). We stayed from Thursday to Sunday and enjoyed so much our vacation that my family wants to go back and spend more time at Las Terrenas, it's a paradise. The owner provided an excellent customer service sending all the information we needed regarding the apartment and she was always in contact with us. We did not have any problem getting back our deposit. We definitely would rent this apartment again and we already recommended to our friends and family members.
