Reviewer Comments:

Place was very clean. Everything you need was there. Great location not to far from beach, 5 min walk. Couple markets about 6-7min walk with restaurants in the area. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Couple disappointsments- -don't lose a key. $15 US they charge for a $2 key. That's an outrageous mark up!!! -check out is 10 am when most places are noon. They charge another outrageous price to stay longer $30 for an hour and $55 for 2 hours!! ( when the place is only $78 a night) -they have a phone nut can't use it for really anything. Can NOT call 1-800 #'s or hotels in area or really anyone from it About the area. Restaurant . Carefull what you order. They charge 18% tax then charge you 15% for tip then still expect you to tip on top of that. (We had a $60 meal. Cost us over $90) We ended up cooking most of our own meals!! -all inclusive day passes. Can't call about them from phone. Doesn't work. Place we went wanted $45 day 8am-6pm or night pass 6pm-2am for $55 per person. Heard that's the cheapest u can get. So we booked an ocer night for $72 person. Way better deal

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. Very happy to read that you found the place was very clean. One of the main reasons for a 10AM check out is so our housekeeping staff has plenty of time to clean and prepare the unit for the next guest arriving at 4PM. $15 for lost key is to deter guests from losing keys. We do manage 50+ units and if guests are careless you can imagine the amount of times we would have to go make those $2 keys. The $15 is to change the cylinder of the lock and new keys that need to be made. We do incur additional costs of time and transportation to get the new cylinder installed and new keys made. Information on late check out fees as well as the lost key charges are included in the rental agreement prior to your arrival, so this should not be a disappointment or surprise to anyone. The phone in the unit is for local land line calls only. Toll free numbers don't work from here from any type of phone - blocked or unblocked. We must block the phones in order to avoid long distance calling. The phone is primarily to call local restaurants, taxi, our office and for emergencies (hospital, police, fire department). Prior to arrival you are informed that you must have your own phone to make the type of calls outside of the ones possible with our land line. The sales tax in the area is 18% plus 10% gratuity included for a total of 28%. In my many travels to Florida, sales tax is 7% and typical gratuity is between 15-20% so that is a total between 22-27%. So it turns out to be about the same amount as you are charged here. Once again, thank you for your valuable feedback. We look forward to your next visit.

Reviewer Comments:

Property was exactly as described. Very clean, everything you needed in the kitchen. Pool was perfect and beach was just a short, safe walk. We walked about 5 miles each day on the beach - lovely sand, warm water. Try eating at Pastrata, a Mexican restaraunt just around the corner. Wonderful food! Also find Onno's, on the beach - great food and happy hour! It would have been nice to know ahead that cooler size bottles of water are available right at the condo gate for 45 pesos, if you carry up yourself. We had taxi take us to the big grocery store prior to arrival, but next time we may just shop nearby. Prices were not much different - it was just a convenience to not have to haul food from the store, but it could be done. Punta Cana Real Estate did a great job of customer service. We had a couple outlets go out and they were fixed right away. Also the internet connection was very good! We had a great time!

Reviewer Comments:

My family and I, including my parents and sisters, had an excellent stay at this apartment. From the reservation process throughout the stay we had a blast and it was only possible because we were all able to stay in one place and this place provided the best experience I’ve have with my family in years! We were 7 adults and I child and we had plenty of room for all of us to sleep, eat and relax either on the balcony or by one of the 2 pools. Communications with Go Punta Cana is excellent and when we arrived, everything was as they had told us via email and on the next day Anny came to meet us with a big smile on her face for the check in. She provided us with valuable information about the Dominican Republic, places to go, eat or just to have fun on the beach. Thank you! The apartment is spacious with really good beds and beautiful showers. You do have to remember to turn the water heater on though, which was not an issue for us. We stayed in July and during the day the temperature was very nice and comfortable and we only needed the AC on at night. The kitchen is well equipped and had everything we needed for the awesome home cooked meals my sisters prepared. Internet is provided and the living room balcony we found to have the best reception. We rented a vehicle which allowed us to go everywhere, restaurants, awesome beaches, shopping, including Santo Doming but if driving is not your thing the beach is a short walk! Overall, everyone from our group loved the place and the location.

Reviewer Comments:

I visited Punta Cana on July 04-09, 2015 and stayed at the Estrella del Mar, PH-B3. The 2 bedrooms, 2 baths condo was very cozy and felt let a home away from home. The condo was beautiful and looked exactly like the pictures posted on the website. The condo was close in proximity to everything in town. My family and I visited a couple places in town and nearby cities. The condo had EVERYTHING you may need from the comforts of your own home (pots and pans, wash towels, beach towels, washer and dryer, and etc.). Carla and Anny were very helpful through the whole process of booking and exiting the condo; they also offered additional assistance if needed. We would highly recommend staying at this condo again because we really enjoyed ourselves.

Reviewer Comments:

In a few words "Absolutely Amazing" More detailed: We rented this property from 05/11-05/15/2015, and the condo was exactly as described online. The complex is located in a quiet tucked in area away from main traffic road noise or other crowded resorts, but a convenient short 10min walking distance to the beautiful Bavaro beach, surrounding restaurants, & shopping places. The property grounds are maintained daily including both beautiful pools, & friendly security staff is on duty 24/7. Although the weather was sunny & hot during the day, we stayed cool inside without using any A/C by turning on the ceiling fans in every room, & leaving both sliding doors leading to both balconies opened in order to enjoy the wonderful ocean breeze brought in by the surrounding palm trees. Go Punta Cana Real Estate staff is very professional, friendly, timely with all communication, & kept us informed from the day we inquired about this property until the day we return. Thank you Scott, Carla, Blanka, & the entire team for making this one of our most memorable vacation trips yet!

Reviewer Comments:

Overall we had a fantastic vacation. The good: the unit we stayed in was clean and adequately equipt. The location was great for us. Walk to the beach, restaurants, bars. $35 cab ride from the airport. Felt safe in the area walking around even at night. The not so good: the living room furniture is limited and beat. Not that you spend much time in doors while here but on those nights we wanted to chill out and watch a little tv before bed we had to all sit lined up on the couch like we were riding the bus. It's such a large living room different furniture would suit it much better (especially if it supposedly sleeps 8). Curtains would be good.... Especially on the windows directly in front of the toilet at eye level when you sit down. Lastly the internet connection was awful/non existent (for those of us who HAD to attempt to stay connected with work) Admittedly, we had some things that weren't working during our stay (toilet/safe etc). But those can be fixed....Overall the property was nice - just wish it was a bit more cozy.
