About Mari Carmen Martinez
English & Spanish couple that fell in love with Samana!
Mari Carmen Martinez purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Mari Carmen Martinez chose El Limón
Samana, the region, is more than just a beach. It has waterfalls, an amazing national park visited by humpback whales each year, amazing birdlife. Las Terrenas town is laid back, verging on shabby chic. A curious mix of French & Italian vibes with the Dominican's fabulous culture. Lots of smiling faces. The French so love the place they have been living here for 20 years and even set up their own school....they have the French Caribbean to choose from and yet they choose Samana. Makes you wonder, right?
What makes this Condo unique
Balcones is located outside Las Terrenas town and our Penthouse is a property that gives all the creature comforts and sense of security one would expect. Belongs to a gated community, built and managed by Dominican Republic's largest and most established construction company as a club for discerning, cosmopolitan & demanding Dominicans.

Excellent!!! Both the apartment and the treatment from the personnel.
We had a wonderful experience on our visit to Las Terranas!
The home of the Bowers is beautiful, clean and comfortable. The flexible help of the maid Ramona was great, she is accessible and very good at what she does...all accompanied with a smile.
When the jacuzzi didn't heat up the first night, they fixed the problem the next day. Other than that everything worked as it should.
We would highly recommend this home to anyone and the beach is very close and beautiful. Shallow and easy to get in and CLEAN! There are also lovely pools on the property.
When we went it was wonderfully quiet...but if you go on a DR holiday time you can expect that your neighbors will be enjoying themselves and it may be a bit noisy sitting on the porches, but the bedrooms have AC so you can sleep like a baby.
If you can go, dont think twice...you will love it, it is the best place to stay in Las Terranas!
Outstanding vacation, can't wait to go back!
This is by far my best vacation since I have been in DR.
We had a wonderful time! we were with our teenagers who had to work for their exams, it was very peaceful, the beach is amazing and long enough to have long walks. The village nearby is very beautiful and people are so kind!
Perfect vacation! You need a car!
Amazing stay at Balcones!
We had a wonderful stay with our 6 and 3 year old children at this penthouse at Balcones. It was perfect for our family. The downstairs area was comfortable and clean and the roof top area was spacious and spectacular. The new outdoor kitchen in great and the kids loved the jacuzzi. We love Balcones for the pools, great beach with kids area and, of course, Porto.
Mari was so easy to work with. Highly recommend all around!
Balcones acts as a club for wealthy Dominicans that arrive at their luxury turnkey apartments for the weekend from the capital 2 hours drive away. This wouldn't have been possible a couple of years ago as it was a 6 hour drive away but thanks to a new highway it's now ''weekend-able''. What does that mean? Well, 2 things --- 1. wealthy Dominicans are quite demanding and want top end tasteful surroundings, furnishings and finishing so you stand to benefit 2. the region is unspoilt because it was so isolated until recently. As well as the beautiful, kid friendly beach on the doorstep, there are 2 more great beaches on the other side of town 1. Playa Coson with its rollers - good for getting the salt in your hair. Don't miss lunch at Casa Luis - basic but great fish. 2. Playa Bonita again with decent waves and lots of restaurants on its boardwalk. Nighttime in Las Terrenas will probably see you end up at Pueblo de los Pescadores at least one evening - very laid back, great selection of restaurants, no heavy sell. Almost forgot, if you are looking to cook certain meals, then you'll be glad to know there's a couple of supermarkets stacking a large selection of imported foodstuffs The Samaná región is much more than just beaches. Rent a car and get around. From mid Jan to mid March the humpback whales visit the peninsula and you can take boat trips out and get up close to these amazing creatures. The trip also typically takes in the national park ‘Parque de los Haiteses’ and Cayo Levantado. El Limón waterfalls are also nearby. Activities wise, if you like sports fishing, it’s easy to hire a boat and captain for a half day’s fishing trip from several point along the pensinsula. Other fun pasttimes include dinghy sailing, surfing and kite surfing so please don't hestitate to ask reception to point you in the right direction. Just wanted to finish the description of the region with a mention of the village of Las Galeras and its idyllic beach, Playa Rincon, reached by small boat. Definitely worth a visit, and our suggestion for lunch would be El Cabito - perched on a sea-cliff with spectacular views.
