John Gimenez purchased this condo in 2010
Two of my close friends and I stayed at John's place in august of 2013. This was my first time in Santo Domingo and I have to say, John made the experience worth our wild. The service provided by John and his staff was impeccable and the cleanliness of the condo was better than expected but it was the extras that John provided that puts this place over the top. My friends and I speak very little Spanish but the VIP treatment John provided made that a non-factor. I would say, you can probably fine a number of decent rentals in Santo Domingo but none with the care and service that John and his staff provided!
Starting with the reservation, John was very diligent. He is not only charming but an extremely responsive property manager who provides top notch personalized service for his clients. His vast experience in multiple successful entrepre'neurial endeavors is perfect for the array of services he provides you in Santo Domingo. He is fluent in Spanish which comes in handy if Spanish is not your first language. He has a wide network of business owners around the city and the beaches who provide the same high quality service for his clients. A driver meets you at the airport with your name on a placard and takes you directly to the property where John meets you and gives you a detailed tour of his penthouse suite.
The house is fully furnished with durable furniture throughout and really setup for a party or as they say down here - fiesta. There is an abundance of natural and fan ventilation, ACs in every room. Free Wifi, a land line and a complimentary cell phone for your use during your stay. (you might have to add minutes to the cellphone) Any US cellphone works down here and is easier to use. Make sure you get a global plan to avoid roaming charges for voice. You should be able to get away with data though..
John has the beat on whats going on in town and even provides a "night out on the town" for a fee. I highly recommend this. He runs the place with his sister-in-law who will cook breakfast, lunch, or dinner for a fee cheaper than dining out. She also cleans the property with pride, like it was her own.
John was very prompt in responding to issues we had with the house. TV's not working, light bulb going out, the Jacuzzi not getting hot enough, issue with power generator for example.
The location is close to a supermarket and several mini-marts so that you can stock up the fridge with whatever groceries you need.
Bottom line if you dont stay in a hotel and need to have a non-contrived experience in Santo Domingo, this is the place to be.
First all the reviews are correct about condo, so I won't be redundant .
Here are the little things some might miss,
I had a minor issue with one of the bathroom sinks, did not affect my stay at all,but John had someone to look at it within the hour.
This was after a email description not a phone call.
It would be difficult to find that kind of service ,in the states .So in other words, John is on top of all issues with your stay, making sure things run smoothly.
He even sent a bottle of wine,as a token of apology for the inconvience which there was none .
His staff .driver Dany and another gentleman whose name escapes me ,are both friendly and professional .
The young lady who cleans the condo is a sweetheart, does an excellent job .Don't forget to tip her for her services, this is only my recommendation , is not required by you , but she's a class act .
So my stay was 100% excellent ,I would recommmend to all ,who like quiet,classy and a great location
We had the best time. It is huge, clean and beautiful. The staff is super friendly. We cant wait to go back.
This apartment is everything it promises online. It is better than a hotel for groups because you can spend more time together and save money by eating in. The pictures online are exactly how the apartment looks once you get there and the staff was very friendly.
Professionalism was great, beginning with the pick-up at the airport. There was a warm welcoming and a safe none stop transit to the penthouse. A very detailed walk through ensuring I knew the complete layout and of course a well stock bar which I requested in advance. Very clean penthouse, great cleaning service, both driver were superb all we had to do was provide and itinerary of events which we wanted to do for the night sit back and enjoy the ride. Recommended stops were upscale, safe and most of all very exciting. Wether you make reservation for family, the girls or the fellows you will enjoy the hospitality !!! See you guys again soon, yet not soon enough.
Thanks for providing a home away from home!
