We stayed at this condo for almost 3 weeks. I don't know where to begin to clearly put into words our experience not only with the condo but also with David. This whole experience surpassed our expectations. We have stayed at all-inclusive resorst in Punta Cana on various occasions. After staying this condo, I can not imagine returning to a resort. The condo is only a few steps from the beach. You literally go downstairs and the pool is to the left and the beach is right in front. We never had to fight for a beach chair. Also, the stretch of beach in front of the condos is by far the best we've ever experienced -- sandy, clear water (no rocks or stones).
While at the unit we had the opportunity of meeting a few of the other owners -- all were super friendly and offered advice as to where to eat or where to go. Security is 24/7 and they're very nice to the guests.
Dealing David was very easy. I had MILLIONS of questions and he always graciously answered them all. The major problem we had was with the wireless connection and David made sure the problem was resolved. The unit was extremely clean. I found the beds to be a bit on the hard side but after a few nights it didn't seem to matter. We were a party of six and we never felt cramped - there was ample room for everyone to feel some privacy.
The pictures that are posted do not do this place justice. It is much, much nicer in person. Also, not shown in the pictures, there is a dining room table with six chairs. The deck has a spectacular view of the beach, and we spent countless hours on the deck reading or just hanging out. We cooked most of our meals and were able to get groceries either at the supermarket across from the complex or from a much larger grocery store called Pola (you will need to take a taxi). The bakery across from the complex is exceptional offering a variety of breads as well as sweets (try the donuts - they are amazing). Also, on Wednesdays at a place called Danny's Sports bar (right by the bakery) there's karaoke - it's so much fun and we met loads of ex-pats from all over (Italy, U.S., South America).
I would totally recommend this place to anyone without any type of reservation. If you're hesitant about booking this place, don't be - you will not be disappointed. This was one of the most relaxing vacations I've ever had and David is someone you can trust.
A huge THANK YOU to David and his family for letting us rent their vacation home !!!
