We just returned from the beautiful villa and have to say it was one of the MOST AMAZING vacations ever. We were 17 of us - 10 adults and 7 kids and there was ample room for all. The staff were wonderful and we were thoroughly pampered from morning to night. The food was outstanding and plentiful. Thank you Rupert, Felix, Felicita, Joel and all those who made this family reunion such a memorable one. The reasons I did not give it an Excellent rating is because the air conditioning did not work in half the rooms and despite us bringing this to the staff's attention on more than one occasion, they could not fix it. This resulted in many family members being uncomfortable at night due to the heat. I just feel for the price we paid we should have been able to get this resolved or been given some credit back on our stay. Other than that, no issues with the villa. Other watch-outs for future visitors - it is far from airports. Flights to Samana are more expensive and not as much choice of airlines. The drive from Santa Domingo is about 2-2.5 hours. Once we got there however, being remote did not bother us at all (in fact we enjoyed the privacy and lack of other tourists). Regarding the beach access below the villa - it is rocky and not ideal for swimming. There are beautiful beaches about 10-20 mins away that we ended up visiting but you need a car or taxi. Overall, a fantastic visit and I would highly recommend staying here. There is something for all ages. It will be hard to top this trip. Thank you Jason and family for sharing this place with us!
