I love this property. We have been taking an annual trip to the DR as a group for 8 years, we have stayed at a total of 5 different villas during our trips. This is by far the best villa yet. One thing about the DR is the power goes off regularly, because the government shuts it off. This villa has a huge generator that kicks on after a couple of minutes which is such a bonus here. Plus the pool is huge, it is the biggest one we have seen at any of the rental villas. There are many areas to lounge and relax and enjoy yourself. The big tikki hut has couches and tables and a hammock, oh and a billiards table which is always fun. There is an outdoor bed by the pool that is has a nice little roof over it. The third floor is completely roofed and it gets a fantastic ocean breeze.
One thing that makes this villa amazing is the staff. There are 5 of them and they are so sweet, welcoming and helpful. I felt like royality at this villa. The are there everyday and clean the place constantly. We hired the chef Nidia for our stay and I highly recommed anyone staying here to hire her.
I read some of the other reviews and I have to say that while the hot tub is no longer hot!! For the rate they charge I wouldn't expect it to be hot. Very few villas on this island have hot tubs, and the villas in the past that we looked at renting with tubs, started at $1000 a night.
Another point that is wonderful about this villa is they have beach towels, bath towels, nice sheets, pillows and comforters. The kitchen has everything you could need, there is a huge beer cooler at the bar. Honestly I just can't say enough about how pleased we were.
