Why Annie Astor chose Los Mangos
Back in 2004 we had no plans to buy in Casa de Campo, until we saw this villa, which was brand new, and fell in love with it! We were staying at a friend's villa for the 4th of July week end.
What makes this Villa unique
We feel relaxed, disconnected and totally pampered by our fabulous staff when we visit. We never want to leave...

It's All True!
It is difficult to add any more accolades to the previous reviews of Los Mangos 18A because they are all true!
That being said, we were very impressed with the “details” of our recent stay. My husband, our son, three of his 20-something friends and another couple thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful Villa! From Annie’s very informative emails, Anyelo’s assistance with securing car service from/to SDQ (we had four different arrival/departure times throughout the week), Dionisio’s incredible attention to anything and everything we could ever want, Marlene’s spotless cleaning and always making sure we had clean clothes and the fluffiest towels ever(!) to Vivienne’s simply delicious cooking, we wanted for nothing. In addition, they were all wonderful, happy, smiling people! We really can’t say enough about how lovely it was to have them with us for the week!
This is our fourth time staying in a villa at Casa de Campo and we thought the location, the outdoor living spaces , the infinity pool and the scenic view to the private La Romana Country Club golf course were perfect! Add in the wonderful staff, and you can’t go wrong! Annie graciously sent us suggested menus in advance which we were able to schedule ourselves (with one dinner at La Casita, great view and ambiance but we were just as happy to eat at the Villa) and quick tip — you must try Vivienne's pork chops, garlic shrimp, beef tenderloin, barbecue chicken, creole fish, ceviche and lobster! She also made us a typical Dominican breakfast, which was yummy! And Dionisio always had delicious Dominican coffee, fruit and a smile available for any early risers, which varied each day depending on our activities. The house came alive every morning when Marlene arrived, and Anyelo was always available with any questions we might have had! Annie introduced us to a free translation app (SayHi) that worked very well with our limited Spanish and is worth having on your phone for more detailed conversations.
Our group enjoyed Teeth of Dog and Dye Fore, the beach club and the gym, but honestly, we loved hanging at the Villa a majority of the time! We hope to return soon!!
Thanks so much for writing such a detailed review. Definitely, when I go there, I also feel like a queen, because of the pampering. The villa is beautiful, but like I always say, that is only half of the experience...the other half is the service and the food, prepared according to what you choose!
It was great hosting you and your group and I hope to hear from you in the not too distant future!
Close to beach club
Very nice home for golf/family vacation. Short golf cart ride to beach club. Annie was very responsive to emails and on-site staff very helpful. We had one Spanish speaking person in our group so communication with staff much easier. If you don’t speak Spanish you definitely need a translation Ap of some sort to assist with communication. Definitely recommend for price/value of amenities/property.
Fantastic Family Vacation at Los Mangos 18A
Our family of 14 had a fantastic vacation at Casa de Campo and Villa Los Mangos 18A.
The villa is exactly as depicted in the photographs. It is a beautiful house with multiple indoor and outdoor gathering places, infinity pool and large backyard overlooking the La Romana Country Club golf course, and large dining room perfect for the entire family eating together. There are six bedrooms. Four of the bedrooms (one master with king bed, another king bedroom, and two with two double beds) are clustered together on one side of the house. Three of these rooms have outdoor showers (in addition to indoor showers). The other two bedrooms (each with two double beds) are located on the opposite side of the house under the kitchen.
Annie, the owner, was very responsive and helpful through all aspects of the booking process. Well before arrival, Annie sent us detailed information about the villa and Casa de Campo, including a sample menu of meals that Dulce, the fantastic cook, could make. She worked with us to convey to Dulce and the other staff some dietary restrictions we had and the menu was modified to incorporate these changes. Annie also helped us arrange transportation to/from SDQ airport.
The villa staff are seasoned professionals and they took amazing care of us.
Anyelo, the concierge, oversees the staff and purchased groceries/water for us. He did a lot of things autonomously, including restocking fruits and bottled water as needed so we never had to worry about running out of key items. He was always willing to do additional grocery runs to pick up needed items. Anyelo also located two sets of golf clubs that we could use so that we didn't have to pay golf club rental fees!
Dionisio, the waiter, is a true gentleman. He arrived at the villa very early every morning and tidied up the indoor and outdoor spaces. He always had coffee and early breakfast ready for us and deftly coordinated all of our meals at the villa.
Dulce, the cook, is a sweetheart and makes fantastic food. She adapted her recipes to accommodate our dietary restrictions. We ate almost all of our meals at the villa (we only went out for dinner at the marina one night - all other meals we had at the villa).
Marlenis, the housekeeper, kept the villa immaculately clean. All of the beds were made and towels were replaced daily. She also washed and folded laundry for us which was incredibly helpful.
We look forward to returning soon!
WOW! What a detailed and nice review, thanks so much for taking the time to write it!! As I always say, our villa is beautiful, and its location perfect, but for me what is significant is the experience of staying, which has so much to do with the staff. You were able to convey that beautifully in your review! I always tell my staff that they make the difference and to always smile and say "Yes"!!
Please come back anytime, you and Tal were a pleasure to work with!
Great location and staff
The property was spacious and well laid out. The cook, Dulce, the Housekeeper, Marlene and D were attentive to all our needs. We were a few minutes from the beach.
My family and I loved the covered outdoor areas. Even when it rained, which was infrequent we stayed outside under the beautiful thatched roof. We loved the 3 huge outdoor showers.
There are 4 large bedrooms on the main level and a lower level with two additional bedroons. Each bedroom has an ensuite bathroom. There are 7.5 bathrooms and 10 showers on the property.
Thanks for writing a review! I am glad you enjoyed our property during this very special occasion for you and your family!! It was enjoyable working with you in the planning and I am very glad to hear that you loved the villa and our staff!
Please come back anytime!!
Amazing stay during our wedding week
We stayed at this villa with some of our family the week of our wedding in Casa de Campo. The house is beautiful and perfect for our group of five couples. The staff was very accommodating and the food was GREAT! There is strong AC in all the bedrooms. The layout of the home is perfect for group gatherings and pool time. The only issue we had was a weak wifi signal.
