First, a heart whelming Thank You to Nader, for coming to our rescue, and renting the 4 of us his condo for the extra 3 days we were stranded in Punta Cana. This condo is located on the 4th floor, (elevators in building) and provided a beautiful straight ocean view of the gorgeous Bavaro Beach. The condo is tastefully decorated in the Dominican style. This condo has the benefit of a gas water heater and dryer, which is huge, since one is responsible for the cost of electricity. Every room has a ceiling fan, which we only used while in the condo. We had no need to turn on AC, for you have a constant gentle breeze and this community is so safe, one can leave the windows/patio doors open at all times. This unit has a water cooler and Nader will provide you with a jug to get you started. Also there is a gas grill on the balcony, ( a must for us)! The beds were comfortable and extra blankets are provided. Upstairs loft is nice and roof terrace gives an excellent view of the town. It would be nice to have furniture on the terrace. Since this was a spur of the moment rental, the condo was not as clean as I would liked it to be but I am a "clean freak", and I didn't mind doing some quick cleaning.
Nader is wonderful in assisting you ...for example, my husband likes to use wash cloths and the condo didn't have any, yet Nader drove to La Romana to purchase this.
Pros: Free WiFi. A large screen TV in living area with DVD
player. Located away from noise of local nightclub.
Total of 5 bathrooms. Living area furniture
upholstered in vinyl to prevent furniture stains.
Cons: No TV in master bedroom. Community has
problems with water...often turning off several times
throughout the day. This is the FAULT of the owner of
Playa Turquesa, not the CONDO OWNER.
Playa Turquesa is located on the most beautiful stretch of Bavaro Beach. Bam grocery store entrance within complex. Other grocery stores within walking distance. Many excellent restaurants within walking distance. Citrus Restaurant provides meals served at the beach and there is a beach bar that has reasonable prices, CoCo LoCo is 6.00 and is delicious. El Tour Caribe Excursions located within the complex and provides excellent services...my daughter did an excursion alone to Santo Domingo and felt safe the entire time.
We have been coming to the DR since 2000, staying at many AI, but find this community much more relaxing
