According to our 16 and 20 yr old daughters, "Best family vaca ever!" and our whole family agrees. The condo unit is exactly as advertised and is in impeccable shape and nicely furnished, including the books, games, and toys for the ocean. The location cannot be beaten. The grounds and pool in the complex are beautiful, well maintained, and offer stunning views of the sea from ever angle. This area of Uvero Alto is not yet as heavy developed as Bravaro and Punta Cana making for a very relaxed, quiet stay. We walked up the beach to the Sirenis resort area and it was so crowded we had to pick our way through the beach chairs and people. At Las Dunas, we virtually had the beach to ourselves. There are also guards on site 24/7 who do a great job keeping an eye on the comings and goings at the complex - very safe area. The views from this unit are the best in the complex as it is front and center overlooking the coconut tree lined beach. Angles from the second floor offer the perfect views (third floor units are somewhat obscured by the tree tops).
Rafael and Marcia, on-site mgmt staff, are very helpful and run an excellent operation. Their recommendation for restaurants and activities were spot on.
The beach is beautiful and the Atlantic here is clear and perfect for snorkeling. If wading just watch for the coral and stay to the sandy bottoms. If snorkeling, follow the terrain of the coral to see the most fishes. On one of our outings we found a perfect conch shell on the open sandy bottom in about 12 feet of water. Best free souvenir we could have hoped for.
Just a 5 minute walk down the beach, Seafood Paradise is not to be missed. Freshest seafood you can find anywhere - caught in the early morning, served same day. Prepared and cooked while you sit and relax while taking in the trade winds and ocean views at this thatched-roof, beachside oasis. Be sure and congratulate Rafael, the owner, on becoming a new padre - daughter was born during our visit.
We highly recommend this property to anyone and look forward to returning as soon as possible.
