Great Stay!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (14 in total) Stay at this wonderful villa. Everything you see in the picture is what you will find at your arrival. Bruno, Monia's assistant, greeted us and showed us the premises. We were soon taken by the beautiful views of the villa. We were all very comfortable and the kids had a blast. Francis and Cristina were great in assisting us with the cleaning and the grocery shopping. This villa gave us the vacation we wanted for so long (and more!). We were informed that the beach was a 15-20 minute walk but we never left the place! We relaxed by the infinity pool and play pool and games at night. We would definitely come back (for a longer stay, we only stayed 3 days)

The only downside to this villa is that because it is very secluded and private , it gives you a sense of not being safe. (Even with the armed security guard at the front gate all night!)

Beautiful but needs improvements

  • 3 of 5

I stayed at this place during May of 2015 with my pregnant wife, 2 year old son, my mom and 3 family members of my wife. On arrival we met with Monica and her husband at a gas station near by and follow them to the place.

Pros:

The house is gorgeous with amazing views from all angles of the house. The infinity pool is not as big as in the picture but it's big enough. It's far enough from the beach to be away from any crowd but close enough to walk to it. The master bedroom is big with great view and amazing sunrise and sunsets. Monia is very helpful and the staff is friendly, trustworthy and very accomodating.

Cons:

The freezer it's very cold on the top but warm on the bottom part. The stairs to the master bedroom are loose and dangerous on a couple of the steps. There was insects all over the house but that's expected to a point considering the location of the property. The windows on the master bedroom are very dangerous so keep kids away from them, or drunken adults. No hot water on the master bedroom so I had to shower on one of the other bathroom. The matresses are very uncomfortable except for one. It felt better to sleep on the couch.

Before I left, I took the time to point out to Monia (owner) about this things but from what I have read on other reviews the issues haven't been resolved to accomodate future guess. Its mainly for that reason that I won't stay there again for my upcoming trip back to Samana, DR. There is obviously no interest by the owners to address the complains of the guess.

What a holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family we all gathered in the villa Cocoloba in late November, we were in 15 with 3 children, as we arrived we were very well received, it was all perfectly prepared the appetizer and the incredible view is like being thrown into a postcard , Monia and Mirco are special they did not miss anything, the chef, massages, dancers who taught the Caribbean dances! A show! just arrived I asked if the pool was heated Monia ... that gaffe! I heard the water then we started to laugh, it was hot! Monia is extraordinary, I recommended restaurants nightclubs and excursions we could do considering the kids, also great babysitter!

What about the stars? A unique show! From the terrace of the house you see a starry carpet unforgettable!

Thanks for all

No luxury at all. Major updates needed.

  • 2 of 5

We stayed at this house for 15 days. 10 guests. Location is great and the staff is really good. On the bad part we had no power 5 times. Ranging from an hour and a half to about 7 hours in one day. Nothing works when it's no power not even the water. One day I was stuck in the house for 7 hours because we couldn't open the garage because there was no power. While we were sitting in the dark because of no power in the house.The house next to us was full of light. They have a backup generator. The oven doesn't bake and the refrigerator is too small and leaking water inside. The mattresses are old and wore out. My mattress have several holes on it look like some animals chewed on it. That was no hot water in the master bedroom. Just like the other review mentioned there were lots of bugs and cockroaches running around the kitchen and other parts of the house. Out of the 6 bedrooms only two had airconditioning. Unless the owner to make some significant improvements I cannot recommend this property. We sent her several emails 8 days ago and still waiting for a response.

Pictures do no justice to the magnificant beauty of this Villa!!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is gorgeous!! The master bedroom has a picture view out of a magazine. The infinity pool is amazing with amazing selfies with the added ocean in the background. The kitchen and sunk-in living room is beautiful with the surround music through out the whole house and the outdoor patio/pool area had an added affect to our experience. Taking pictures inside and around the home were magnificent and we were the envy of town when we got back. The outdoor patio/pool space was amazing and we spent most of our time on the patio which didn't seem outdoors. Communication with Monia was great. Monia was professional, informative, and conducted a walk-thru of the property with me. During the closure of our meeting, Monia read and wrote down the utility meter so we could both keep track of the expenses at check-out. Beach is a 15 minute walk from the villa/property. Town is only a few minutes away in car. Night life only a few minutes away in town was awesome! Franci was AMAZING! Franci is super trustworthy and very accommodating and eager to assist in anything you may need. Franci is very humble, friendly, and always looking to please NEVER expecting anything in return (tips). Villa is aesthetically appealing and has picturesque views all around!!!

CONS:

I have a few cons, but please note I NEVER CONTACTED Monia as I felt they were petty at the time.

1. Master bedroom - extremely inconvenient and awkward to climb into tub from bedroom. Super dangerous to walk around thru doors to the hallway/walkway that leads to the master bedroom bathroom. If you've had a few drinks, I must insist to NOT WALK THRU DOORS, but instead climb into tub. While we were there, we never had hot water in the master bedroom, but the other ppl in our group has no complaints. We had to shower in other bathrooms in order to be able to have hot water.

2. The kitchen bar stools were wobbly and not sturdy, but it looked to be due to wear n tear.

3. The outside floor where the pool is, is super slippery and dangerous. Kids fell several times. I almost fell and I never got in the pool!

4. The refrigerator does not keep things cool. Mother-in-law bought fresh lobster and it spoiled the next day we were to cook it. Had to throw it away.

These are my only complaints. Villa is absolutely beautiful!!! The inground private pool, interior/exterior surround system, spacious rooms, outdoor patio/space, fully equipped kitchen makes this villa a must!! We enjoyed our stay and will book again!!

Great place to stay!

  • 3 of 5

Monia (the owner) did an amazing job at communicating with us the few days before we booked. She answered ALL MY QUESTIONS and I appreciated that communication from her so much! Upon arrival - we were greeted by the staff and Lemonade which was great and refreshing!

The Pro's -

Overall the experience was great. The property was beautiful and my group and I (12 adults, 2 children) had a great time. The Staff at the house were very sweet, helpful and extremely TRUSTWORTHY!!! That's a big plus! When we arrived to Terrenas, the owner of the Villa met us at the gas station to guide us in the right direction. She gave us a tour of the house, checked the meter and was on her way.

The Kitchen had everything you would need to cook, which was great! The surround sound system for the music helped us to enjoy our stay even more! The beach was not far, the nights were quiet and peaceful. The Infinity pool was not as big as it looks in the pictures, but nonetheless it was fine. It was a great weekend and we all had a great time!

We used the BBQ grill that was there - the big one, not the small one and we had no issues with the grill - Franci left it ready for us to use! Awesome guy!

There was a watchman at night and we felt VERY SAFE on the property!!

The Con's -

A few of the people in my party, including myself, felt that the villa wasn't ready for us when we arrived. We took a tour of the place but once we settled we noticed the floors of several of the rooms were not as clean as we hoped. There were bugs (roaches and many ants) on the floor and the borders of the bed (ants - not roaches) In the master bedroom there were a good amount of roaches and my coworker had to spray raid and sweep them out of the room. It was an uncomfortable situation which possibly could have been avoided with fumigation. There were also a crazy amount of flies around. No matter how much we tried to keep things clean - there were flies everywhere.

The floors are VERY SLIPPERY when wet. Something to keep in mind if there are children in your party, even for the adults - several of my party members fell. There was not hot water in all of the rooms and the mattresses were VERY uncomfortable - that was the topic of discussion every morning.

The refrigerator needs to be checked. A lot of the stuff we bought did not stay cold. The freezer works great - the bottom part not so much.

I would recommend this place to friends but with the proper adjustments made.
