Our return to the Dominican Republic and Playa Turquesa did not disappoint. Two weeks of beautiful weather with all the conveniences of home made for a wonderful relaxing vacation. I can’t say enough about the property manager Liz. She’s fabulous. Very fast response to questions or concerns, offers tips to the finer things in the area and delightful to chat with. The property and condo are ideally located in the center of everything. You’ll not find a better complex here. The condo is outfitted nicely with most everything you would use at home. The beach is great and can be walked for miles either way you choose. The pools are refreshing. The TOC beach bar has tasty drinks and food along with a friendly fun staff. You’re within walking distance of everything including very good restaurants, small grocery stores, pharmacies, gift shops, massages etc. We highly recommend Playa Turquesa and this community. Very safe and if you prefer to avoid the big all inclusive sardine can vacation this is a great option for you to find your paradise and dream vacation in the Caribbean. Family friendly, space to roam and live day to day life as if you were home. I’ll wrap up this review by saying please do not hesitate to rent this condo for one second. Paradise found! We look forward to another adventure here very soon.
AMAZING TRIP TO PUNTA CANA
I need to start with Liz. WOW! Excellent communication leading up to our trip and on arrival she greeted us with a huge bear hug! What a way to start a vacation! The place was immaculate. Some reviews noted old linens but this must have changed as ALL towels and sheets and blankets and rugs and beach towels were perfect. The kitchen was well-stocked with cookware and bar ware. The beach bar had excellent food. The surrounding restaurants were also fun to sample. We were there over New Years and the beach was crowded. I imgine a more serene view at a different time of year. The pool was clean and the surrounding lounge chairs and umbrellas were plentiful. The pool was easily accessible right beside our unit. We were met at the aiport by Liz's driver and did a grocery stop at Jumbo. I want to stress that you ought to purchase as much as you can here. The markets beside the condo units had only a small selection of fresh fruit or vegetables and we wish we had planned some meals better in advance and stocked up on fresh fruit, vegetables, meats, dairy at Jumbo.
And again-I need to end with how amazing Liz is. She started and ended our vacation with us. She arranged a snorkeling trip. She pointed us to restaurants. She helped with issues as they came up in a prompt and professional manner. I had hardly pressed "send" on my phone before she was back with a reply. We would do it all over again!
Thank you so much! It was a pleasure to have met you all, and hope to see you again in the future! FYI all linens and towels were the same :-) keep in touch. Liz x
A Stupendous Week
Let me start with Liz. We’ve never had such a warm and knowledgeable person handling our reservation and stay. Any questions, items you needed, places to go, arrangements for driving…Liz does it all with a smile on her face.
The condo. Perfectly located so that you see the ocean while you’re sitting on the patio. Plenty of light. A quick and easy walk to the beach, TOC (beach restaurant-more below), grocery store, multiple restaurants and overlooking the adult pool. Like I said, perfect location. The dishwasher wasn’t working while we were visiting but that made us vote to eat out more......which is not very pricey and we had some delicious meals. The only thing negative I would say about the condo is that better towels are needed and some items - like placemats - need to be replaced.
Food and drinks. We always check to see if there is a place to get drinks & food on the beach. After all, who wants to get out of their swimsuit and hunt down refreshments? When we heard there was a beach bar, we expected the usual. TOC is NOT your usual beach bar. Yes, they have yummy drinks. Here the service is impressive and always helpful. The food is chef level food made onsite. From the handmade shrimp wontons, spring rolls, grilled catch of the day (the whole fish), grilled octopus, fish tacos....I could go on and on. (Oh, they also have breakfast!) If traveling with kids, they will also make chicken strips. Everything we had was delicious. Obviously, we ate here a lot. Like daily.
Some other walkable and notable restaurants are:
Citrus - Everything our table of 7 had was excellent. Lobster risotto, grouper stuffed with shrimp, melt in your mouth steaks, the potato croquettes are amazing.....
Cafe Dalias- Pastries, desserts, breakfast and breakfast rolls....a must have. Taino Gastronomic Restaurant - not only gorgeous decor, but mouth watering food. Some others that we all enjoyed are La Bruja Chupadora, Don Pio’ Cuban and Kat’s Korner. There are so many other places to try.
Definitely a vacation to remember. We do plan on coming back in the future.
Lisa, it was lovely to have met you all, and keep in touch, for your next trip. Liz x
Excellent stay at Playa Turquesa
We have stayed at Playa Turquesa three times and have enjoyed each stay. The location is excellent both on the beach and in the center of restaurants and small shops. The beach restaurant is an excellent amenity that serves fantastic cocktails and fresh appetizers and meals. We would highly recommend this condo.
Thanks so much. Hope to see you all in the future. Liz
Family Vacation in Punta Cana
This condo was great. Bright, clean and has everything you need. Beach towels, beach toys, pool toys, cooler. We enjoyed the patio and ocean view everyday.
Liz is amazing! She alone is worth considering this rental. She helped us at every turn with navigating our excursions, taxi rides and what was worth seeing.
Danna - thank you so much/ you guys were great - looking forward to helping you organize that trip to Scotland! Liz x
Slice of heaven on earth
This was our 10th year in the Dominican,we absolutely love it, our home away from home! The condo is absolutely gorgeous,perfect location, well equipped with everything you could need,super comfortable beds too, and if by chance you do need something Liz is amazing!!! She is the sweetest! She truly wants her guests to have the perfect holiday. We just love her for always going the extra mile. There are so many restaurants near by and a wonderful grocery store no need to go far for all you need. Best vaca spot ever!!!! The pictures do not do it justice it is beautiful. Can’t wait to go back!
Thanks guys....will be waiting for your return. Love you all! Liz x
El Cortecito is the heart throb of Punta Cana. It started off as a small fishermans village, and you can still find the one little street adjacent to the beachfront. Over the last couple of years, El Cortecito has merged with the Los Corales area, making it all one region spanning over a kilometer of beachfront. There is no need for a car here, everything you could possibly need is within walking distance including numerous dining options, grocery store, pharmacy and more. It is one of the safest and friendliest areas in the Caribbean. There is also a little local bus which can be picked up directly outside to take you further afield.
It is recommended that you fly directly into Punta Cana International Airport (15 minutes taxi ride), rather than Santo Domingo which is over a 3 hour drive away. Airport transportation can be pre-arranged with us for a small additional charge, making it easier for you to arrive at your condo, as most taxi drivers only know the names of the local hotel resorts and not all the condo communities.
