Amazing Vacation Home!!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a Gorgeous development we had the pleasure of staying in! The interior of Cindys condo we rented was equally beautiful with great decore! We were pleased with its cleanliness! Thoroughly enjoyed the outside balcony/grill area as well as the lovely open floor plan of the living room/dining/kitchen. If we needed to contact the owner about anything she was readily accessible. The staff at this place was super nice. And even when we had issues they were very prompt in trying to resolve them or make us as comfortable as possible. The Laundry service & Option of having a personal chef was Awesome & both at Fantastic prices! Again Beautiful condo very modern & not far from pool or beach! We felt very safe here. If we come to Dominican Republic in the future we'll gladly stay here again!!!

The fabulous relaxing condo made my trip to Puerto Plata twice as nice. The pictures do not do justice to the condo it is even nicer in person. The unit has all the creature comforts you need in order to have a comfortable retreat and a leisure vacation. Cindy the owner is a text away at all times and is available to provide information regarding recommendations, transportation, or anything else you may need. The one drawback is the wifi did not work inside of the unit however, connectivity worked well on the balcony which is also well furnished.

Guarantee, if you rent this unit you will not be dissapointed.

The San Marino experience

  • 5 of 5

April 2015, we just finished two months at San Marino residences in Playa Dorada, Puerto Plata. It was the best long term condo rental anyone could ever experience in the Dominican Republic.

The three bedroom Condo was spacious bright, clean, with up to date appliances and was well stocked with plenty of houseware items. The living room had sectional seating on-looking a large patio. Flat Screen televisions were provided in the living room and all bedrooms. Plenty of fresh linens and towels were provided and an onsite cleaning and laundry service was at our disposal making our stay even more enjoyable.

This was our first long term stay through the winter months. The condo owner Cindy, took all of the concerns about this sort of stay away from us. She provided all the information and assistance we needed. Any question we posed was answered timely and in detail. Knowing that we had a go to person at every step of the way was a great comfort to us.

The grounds, pool and reception area were beautiful and very well maintained. The staff was very helpful and understanding, making us feel welcomed. We felt very safe at all times at San Marino as well as the Playa Dorada complex. Transportation was never an issue as the taxi service was reasonable, very reliable and willing to go just about anywhere on the North Coast.

All in all, we discovered a wonderful area of the Dominican. From the spectacular beach and private beach bar, large pool, Ocean World, golf, drinks on the Malecon, to fine dining, our two month stay could not have been better. This was a great place to start experiencing genuine Dominican culture!

All the best,

David and Rita Carter

Great location and a wonderful owner

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the condo. The people at the complex were so nice and very helpful. The pictures of the place are accurate. Cindy was great. We had our flight cancelled and Cindy let us stay an extra day, and she arranged for us to go to a wonderful restaurant on Valentine's Day. I would differently recommend this property to my friends. The security was excellent and the beach bar was nice too. Mary makes a great pina colada, and she was very helpful with any questions that we had. Nesmyna drove us to the grocery store and to one of the restaurants. She also was very nice. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. I can't say enough about the awesome time that we had. The only problem that we encountered was the lack of pay phones in the area. Next time we will make sure that we have a phone that will work in the DR. The residents said that they were sorry to see us leave. Can't wait to visit again.

Great Vacation Stay

  • 5 of 5

San Marino at Playa Dorada is a beautifully maintained and secure resort. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful and the entire property, including the nearby private beach, is very clean and pleasant. The apartment itself is very large and beautiful with everything you could conceivably need for cooking and/or grilling on the terrace, as well as dining/entertaining. The master bedroom and bath is luxurious (although closet space could be better) while the second upstair bedroom is charming - perfect for kids or teens. WiFi is spotty within the apartment (but many would consider this a good thing); however, a short walk to the pool brings good reception. The owner, Cindy, was very attentive to our needs and offered excellent advice on shopping, excursions and the like. All in all, an excellent vacation home for a family or couples.

Owner's Response: Thanks Josely for your 10 day rental and comments on my condo. I look forward to having you stay again soon! Regarding closet space, There are two closets upstairs, one for each bedroom that have been sufficient to most renters...Especially since the walk to the beach down our private path can be done wearing a bathing suit. LOL. I will check with my contractor to see if he can put up an additional clothing bar in closet to give it two tiers to hang clothes. Thanks for taking the time to review your stay. Cindy

Great place to rent will do it all over again!!!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family stayed here for a 10 days, the house has everything you need, the owner is very attentive, its an a great location in Puerto Plata, we were close to everything you need, walking distance to the beach, about a 10 minute drive to the super market, el malecon, and 15 minutes to the teleferico, and 5 minutes from the Brugal factory which is a must.

The house is very clean, and spacious, and the owner thought of everything to make you feel at home, she makes sure you feel comfortable in your stayed.
