This wonderful Las Terrenas rental is literally 60 meters from the beach, within a new complex called Playa Bonita Beach Residences. We flew direct from Montreal, Canada to Samana's El Catay airport, only 15 minutes away along the new highway with its breathtaking ocean
The unit is nicely furnished, very well managed and, best of all, the rental rates include the staff who cooked and cleaned for us a few hours everyday. Muchos gracias to Julia and Melida who, with the groceries we bought in town, made us healthy food to enjoy for breakfast and lunch! Fresh squeezed juices, fruit platters, salads and grilled shrimp were among the daily delights.
There are so many things that make Playa Bonita Beach residences a wonderful place to stay: The beach is beautiful offering calm waters in the corner of the bay, yet great surfing waves a few hundred metres away; there are seven restaurants to choose from within walking distance along a lovely boardwalk that wraps around the bay; the bustling downtown Las Terrenas is just a 5 minute ride away, convenient to get to for nightlife and grocery shopping (We fell in love with Terry and the crew at One Love Surf Shack, and became regulars at the Boulangerie Francaise). Additionally, there are many places to explore just a short ride away. We enjoyed Playa Coson's two great restaurants: the very casual Restaurante Luis and The Beach Restaurant, an upscale experience in a casual setting which is not to be missed! We also loved trying all the beachside restaurants along Playa Portillo.
Playa Bonita Beach Residences is a peaceful oasis along a spectacular bay with sunsets that you won't be able to forget.
We loved it so much that we have just put an offer on our own place right next door!
