My husband and I and our four teenage children had a fantastic Christmas vacation in the lovely Villa Careta in Punta Cana Resort. It truly was the perfect fit for our family!
When we arrived, we were welcomed by the owners who gave us a tour of their beautiful home. They gave the kids a quick golf cart operating lesson and guided them to a resort restaurant. The owners were so friendly and helpful and just a phone call away if you have any questions!
The terrace overlooking pool is the perfect place for dining. We began each morning there for breakfast and chose to stay home and grill on the gas BBQ several evenings. The kitchen is large and well equipped and made it easy to prepare many dinners at home. The pool and surrounding areas are so peaceful and beautifully landscaped. There are numerous choices for lounging and reading; the hammocks being a favorite for the teens! The home is so beautiful and comfortable it was hard to motivate the kids to leave for a dinner out. All looked forward to late evening card games back home in the villa!
An added bonus is access to the Punta Cana resort, which is a nice walk or a short golf cart ride away. Our family enjoyed the golf, oversized chess, beach volleyball, lagoon hike and swim and Segway tour. We were there at a busy time of year, but the beaches were never crowded and were always plenty of available lounge chairs to choose from under gorgeous swaying palm trees.
I would highly recommend Villa Careta for your stay in the Dominican Republic.
