An ideal place for a family vacation
We have just spent an ideal week at "Villa Bahia Rincon". We had arrived with our two children and Diogenes welcomed us the first evening. Diogenes is the Butler who accomodated us and gave us the first explanations for using the villa properly. We discovered the perfectly equipped vast rooms. The following morning, we were totally flabbergasted when, on opening the windows, we were able to enjoy the view on the sea and could lay our first steps on this extraordinary virgin nature leading to a succession of little wild beaches right in front of us. We then understood why we had proceeded (after some efforts, i must say!) to this magical place.
The rest of our stay was a pure dream: The villa is extremely pleasant and convenient, and the staff is gentle and discreet. We spent our time bathing in a warm sea ona "virginal" beach or around the beautiful swimming pool, reading a good book and sunbathing. We also enjoyed walking particularly along the coast as far as the famous Playa Rincon. We also appreciated the boat trip to Playa Fronton and the pic-nic on the beach. We felt protected by Yuni, the night watchman who was in charge of the house security together with Diogenes ans Odalys, the maid, who where working during the day.
A few recommendations must be given to the future travellers. The last miles leading to the villa are quite difficult, that's why it's better to rent a SUV (4-wheel drive). Most necessities are to be bought in Samana or at Las Terrenas. Yet, shopping can also be done at Las Galeras' grocery. For fruits and vegetables, ask Diogenes and fresh fish will be directly proposed to you by some fisherman at the villa for a barbecue (how tasty these fresh lobsters!!!). Don't forget a few films, DVDs, games...or you might feel quite far from the village in the evening, although you'll have the opportunity to go to the restaurant in Las Galeras, once or twice.
We really enjoyed our holidays at "Villa Bahia Rincon" and will certainly recommend it to our friends for their holidays.
