Beautiful tropical seaside setting.
We had a wonderful time. The property needs a generator due to the constant power outages that affect both electricity and water supply. AC in the master bedroom did not work. The property manager and the caretakers were excellent. Very helpful and made our stay a pleasure.
Chris Medina from Everything Under the Sun (http://underthesundr.com/) planned our activities. He was excellent. He was personally involved every step of the way and really took care of us.
Perfect 3-week stay
Our family [2 grandparents (in our 60's & 70's), adult children with significant others (ages 32 to 44) and 2 grandchildren (ages 4 & 5)] stayed at Seacliff Villa over a 3-week period during the 2011 Christmas/New Years holidays. We weren't all there at one time--our children arrived and left at various times, so the 5 bedrooms were perfect.
This was the fourth year our family has stayed in the Carribean for the holidays. We had previously stayed in Montego Bay and Puerta Plata. Everyone agreed that Seacliff is the best villa we have stayed in. It is very comfortable and the outdoor room on the ground level is a great gathering place.
The view of the sea from the master balcony is gorgeous and gives complete privacy. Our daughters sun bathed on the hugh balcony at the front of the house, again with complete privacy.
The pictures of the house on HomeAway are not up to date as the bed linens are much nicer and all rooms are fully furnished. Otherwise, I found the listing description to be accurate.
The villa is about 90 minutes from Puerta Plata airport and not in a touristy area. There is a beautiful, long beach with white sand about a 5-minute drive from the villa. The vendors on the beach will bring lounge chairs, drinks; and if you want a meal, they will bring table, chairs & excellent fish, lobster or chicken right to you. You run a tab and pay at the end of the day.
Hubert and Mota are the consummate hosts; and if anything needs to be fixed, they are right on it. I don't think I ever saw either without a smile on his face.
We would highly recommend Seacliff to others and may very well return again.
Thanks again, Hubert, Mota, Gaby, Gabriel, Luce and Georgina for all the fond memories.
