Palm-tree filled paradise

  • 5 of 5

This property is spacious and well-appointed, and comfortably large enough to sleep the four of us in our group. Claudia the chef and caretaker was friendly and took good care of us and the home. We especially enjoyed fresh pineapple juice in the morning and fresh ceviche for lunch! There are plenty of activities available on the property grounds. Our kids had multiple pools to choose from, and we all enjoyed the access to the beach. It was especially fun to ride on the kayaks that were available for free from the property, and we even took advantage of foosball and table tennis in the recreation area. The shops and restaurants of Las Terrenas were easily accessible from this villa via a quick five minute ride, however we also note the other beaches in the area such as Playa Coson, Playa Moron, and Playa Bonita which are are short rides away as well, and especially beautiful. I highly recommend this place to anyone seeking a vacation in a palm-tree filled paradise.

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five - Mom, Dad and three kids, 21, 17 and 14 - spent a fantastic week at Emma's beautiful apartment in Los Balcones. The apartment is spacious and everything is very high-end. Ana, the woman who cleans and cooks, is a really nice person and a great cook. I could really get used to having that kind of help! The ability to speak at least some basic Spanish will be useful in this part of the D.R.

Great place for vacationing.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment looks like new and it makes you feel at home. Very contemporary. The pool area is huge and well maintained. The lady who does the housekeeping makes you feel like royalty and her "arroz con guandules and fish with coco" will make you want more. The beaches and attractions in the area are phenomenal as well. I highly recommend you take a vacation there. You'll love it.

Fabulous property safe, clean and highly reccomend

  • 5 of 5

Couple traveling with 2 young children. This was the perfect setting to unwind and relax, our family really enjoyed our stay in this property.

This is an exclusive property and everything is top notch. Gated and very private we felt very safe here.

All the amenities you need for a comfortable stay. We enjoyed dining at El Porto restaurant and looking over the beach while having Piña Coladas. The beach right in front is great for small children. There are several pools within the complex and we enjoyed all of them. For the more adventurous trips we traveled close by to Moron Beach and had the beach to our self's. Ana our service lady was lovely and very attentive, had our coffee ready and served every morning. She kept the apartment clean and did most of the cooking .. she made a great eggplant for us. We went to local fish market and came home with a a hog snapper that she made using the local recipes, with coconut. We went to the local super market brought our supplies for the week and she took care of the rest. She will have your meals ready by the time you come back from the pool or beach ! She made everything extra relaxing for us. We also visited other local beaches and they were all great. There are plenty of local restaurants Italian/ French or the local flair. We would love to return one day. Thank you for allowing us to stay in paradise !
