It's hard to rate this property. On the one hand, a spacious apartment with beautiful oceanfront view (5-stars) in a great location, with plenty of amenities like water sports and beach bar out in front. And the staff was wonderful! Friendly, helpful, always available, and everything very clean. (5-stars for staff). But be prepared for a simple, clean, time-worn apartment where it's past time to fix many little things. Like when you stay at grandmas house and keep thinking- I should fix that, and that, and that. Water leaked from faucets, toilet handles had to be jiggled, oven didn't work, broken coffee pot (promptly replaced when we pointed it out), not enough utensils and cups for our group of six, old stereo didn't work. 2-stars for all interior hassles. And there is nothing stocked in the way of salt, pepper, oil, etc. I think if the owners did an interior redecorating update and re-stocked it would be great -- but then they would probably jack up the price considerably. So it's a mixed bag -- large and clean, in a 5-star location, with 5-star staff, time-worn interior with basic furnishings at a reasonable price. Great place for a reasonably priced, fun family vacation. Just leave any picky relatives at home and enjoy the amazing balcony view or go play in the ocean.
Loved the location, we took our 3 year old daughter and 7 month old son so being on the ground floor with a patio on the beach was great, we could walk right out tot he beach and play in the sand or go swimming without packing a thing. The apartment was nice had everything we needed, we used the kitchen a lot, Jackie and Mrs. Luz were incredible, they were around all the time and helped with anything we needed, we did not expect that! Only reason I don't give five stars is due to the beach bar out front - it was a bit of a double edged sword. We loved going over to get coffee and they had good food for fair prices, the only downside was on the weekend they became a beach club and played loud music late into the night - ok if you don't have kids but was tough trying to get the 7 month old to sleep - he just wanted to party at the club all night! As for the rest of the area it was great, about a three to four block walk to supermarkets and restaurants, we bought food at the markets and fruit off a fruit truck. Ate at a different restaurant every night, there must have been about 10 in the area, never had a bad meal. We will absolutely go back to Villas Chiara if we ever return to Punta Cana!
The condo sits on the most beautiful beach in the area with clean, cool sand, post card palm trees, plenty of papalas, and security. The ocean is that blue/green color we all love, clean, and lots of fun in the surf. You are approached by local vendors and a simple no thanks with a smile is enough. I never felt pressured, uncomfortable, or unsafe. The locals are wonderful people; I enjoyed taking time to chat for a few minutes.
Emailing the owner (Roberta) from the very start through our vacation was excellent. We had standard questions in the beginning, detailed questions once we booked, and then a few emails while we were at the condo. All were promptly replied to by Roberta, I really enjoyed working with her, and she is a great communicator. Roberta has an amazing team onsite available day/night. Luz helped with anything we needed and Bernardo and Winston helped with security. The day of our departure, we had to have a 4:30am taxi, all was arranged to get us started for our long journey home, and it was so helpful.
The ‘beach cottage’ condo has a covered patio area literally a step off the beach. We used the charcoal grill too, I believe it is for the entire building, but Luz had it moved for us to use outside our patio anytime. The Kitchen had French doors off the main patio looking out to the beach/ocean. It was very basic with essentials, but could use a few more items such as a cutting board and plastic drink cups. The living area had another set of French doors that you could go outside onto a smaller patio with another total view of the beach/ocean. The living area had ‘L’ shaped couch built into the wall with a large coffee table. Flat screen tv with lots of English channels, I’ll admit we turned on a few times at night to unwind and catch a few minutes of a movie.
The 3 bedrooms were all very basic with lots of closet space. I suggest bringing pillows, but I say that for all travel. The bathrooms all need to be updated or just replace the plumbing fixtures. The main sitting area and 2 of the 3 bedrooms had AC. This is not a fancy condo, it is basic, but as I titled this review, it is all about the amazing location on the beach!
The area around the condo has plenty of restaurants and grocery stores within walking distance. The big grocery story is a taxi drive away, we went once day one, but realized we could get all we needed at local grocery stores.
We stayed at the 2BR ground floor apartment of Villas Chiara (located on the side of the ocean front building). We really appreciated the sandy beach few steps from the apartment, the balcony with a small view of the beach and the privacy. The pictures on their website are beautiful and gives you a good idea of what you will see at Villas Chiara. There are many good restaurants, a small shopping center and a car/scooter rental at a walking distance. Thank you very much to all the staff!
