Overview

About the property

3/3.5, sleeps 6-8, walk to beach, private pool, golf, tennis, activities galore!

Experience tropical luxury at the beautiful Villa Tatagua, a three-bedroom private villa within Punta Cana Resort and Club. Miles of pristine beach called Playa Serena (Serene Beach) is located just three blocks away. At the the villa, soaring ceilings and banks of windows and sliding glass doors mean that sunshine pours in, opening onto a sprawling patio and turquoise pool surrounded by palm trees that line the rolling greens of La Cana Golf Course.

Three bedrooms, each with its own en suite bath, sleep 6-8 and are perfect for families or couples traveling together.

Palatial Comfort + Plenty of Activities at Punta Cana Resort and Club

Begin the day with a dip in your own private pool and prepared-for-you breakfast on the patio, then hit the golf course for a round of 9 with incredible views of the Caribbean. Villa Tatagua is located in Tortuga Bay, an award-winning oasis of private single-family homes within Punta Cana Resort and Club.

In addition to incredible natural surroundings – Tortuga Bay is nestled in an ecological reserve – you’ll have your pick of activities: There’s a spa, horseback riding, Segway tours, kite and wind surfing, snorkeling, and tons more. At the nearby Ojos Indigenas, trails lead to twelve freshwater lagoons for a magical swimming experience.

Or let the hours pass on the beautiful, white-sand beach at Playa Serena, sure to provide hours of sandcastle-building fun for little ones. Or let us help you book a private catamaran tour, where you’ll see the wonders of the ocean close-up and personal while you snorkel in the gorgeous blue waters.

We can prepare fresh, delicious meals for you at the villa (guests rave over our local fare!) And if you feel like dining out, the resort offers several world-class restaurants. From fresh-squeezed juices and grown-on-site veggie dishes at Bamboo to grilled steaks and shrimp skewers on the beach at Playa Blanca, there’s something for every taste.

Afterward, enjoy a glass of wine as you watch the sunset from the patio. Then sink into luxe, 500-thread-count sheets with goose-down duvets. Bright, generously sized bedrooms with en suite bathrooms mean plenty of privacy for everyone. The master bathroom includes a separate shower and Jacuzzi tub that's perfect for long, hot soaks.

Friendly, Enthusiastic Service + Tons of Amenities

Before retiring to live my dream in the Dominican Republic, I was a civil engineer in a big American city. I’d visited the Dominican Republic many times, always brought back by the friendly people, beautiful beaches and tropical scenery. Today, I take the love that I have for this island and turn it into top-notch service for my guests, greeting you with a basket of local fruit, a drink, and a tour of the property. And because you’re staying at the island’s best resort, you’ll have access to all the amenities that Punta Cana Resort and Club has to offer.

We’re happy to offer the following services as part of our policy to provide our guests with an unforgettable vacation experience:

Daily housekeeping services

About Eduardo

Hello! I’m Eduardo, the owner of Villa Tatagua in beautiful and tropical Punta Cana Resort and Club.

I am a retired US civil engineer and general contractor and know what it is like to live a stress-filled life in the hustle and bustle of a large city. I had vacationed in the Dominican Republic many times in the past and always found the beautiful beaches, friendly people and tropical scenery so relaxing and inviting. I always found it hard to leave when the vacation was over and couldn’t wait until I could once again return. When I retired, I decided to make a change: I turned one of my favorite vacation spots into my retirement home and am so happy I did!

I bought this Villa 6 years ago and spent several months remodeling it to what it is today…a beautiful 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath, spacious, sun-filled Villa facing hole 2 of La Cana Golf Course and a short walk to Playa Serena, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. I named the home Villa Tatagua in honor of a beautiful beachfront property my parents owned in Cuba.

I have loved every minute of this new life! It is a pleasure getting to know our guests and helping them turn their dream vacation into a reality. Many of our wonderful guests have returned year after year and we have a spotless 5-star review from 20 guests and counting!

My daughter and I will help make your vacation truly memorable. Leave your cares behind and enjoy Paradise!

Eduardo purchased this villa in 2007

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Eduardo,



We are having a lovely time.



Everything is wonderful... my husband and the two boys have been golfing nearly every day and loving it! Adrianna's meals have been wonderful and Chiciquito is also so pleasant and wonderful. We watched USA vs Belgium World Cup at the Westin on Tuesday which was also fun except for the USA loss:(



Everything fantastic. My one daughter and I are going to try some shopping in the San Juan shopping center once we figure out transportation.



Best and thank you for checking in,



Tina



.



Thank you,

Well-maintained property with great owner

  • 5 of 5

If you want a relaxing, stress-free vacation, this is it. The house is exactly as described. It is beautifully decorated, clean and well-maintained. The resort is huge, but quiet. The owner, Eduardo, is extremely responsive. He responded to my messages and calls very quickly. We rented a golf cart, which is necessary to get around the resort. There are a number of restaurants on the property, though we opted for the cooking service in-house for breakfast and dinner. Rosa is a fantastic cook. My family had no complaints about the food. And Chiquito would often pop up to make us afternoon cocktails or bring fresh coconuts. There are several beaches on the resort property, all of them uncrowded. We did several excursions and all of them provided transportation. I would recommend a car if you are interested in exploring Punta Cana beyond the property or without booking an excursion. I have rented many properties before and this was one of the best.

Truly Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This villa, the location, Rosa and Chiquito, the owner, Eduardo...everything about our stay is nothing short of FIVE STARS! The Villa exceeded my expectations. It was identical to the photographs and the previous reviews speak the TRUTH! Rosa and Chiquito were definitely a huge part of what made this trip so special. Rosa is so sweet and she CAN COOK! There is nothing like waking up in paradise to someone cooking you a homemade breakfast and cleaning up after you! Chiquito is super friendly and made sure we found our way around the resort. He also makes a hell of a dessert!

Just as the reviews said, the golf carts are a MUST. No need to rent a car, but you HAVE to rent the golf carts. You can explore everything! The pool was also a great part of the trip. It was cleaned every morning and the surrounding trees and view made it very cozy and private.

Lastly, Eduardo. Unfortunately we did not get to meet him as he was away, but he was amazing! Easily communicated through emails, was very organized, and provided a lot of useful information prior to the trip. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this home. I can say without a doubt that if we return we would 100% rent here again.

It was the best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

The entire experience was positive. The house is spacious and very well appointed. The garden and pool were very lovely. Within a five minute cart ride you can be on a beautiful serene beach or by a pool, enjoying your favorite tropical beverage and delicious food. If one does not wish to leave the villa, relaxing by pool in the garden is very relaxing. We opted to have two meals a day prepared by the Villa Chef, Rosa. We were delighted to say the least. Having Rosa and Edmond there daily was the way to go. Not only are they very willing and helpful, but extremely warm and friendly- like an extension of family. We cannot say enough about the trip. The area offers something for everyone. I am torn between telling everyone I know about the great experience and keeping it as a secret. We will definitely be going back.

Owner's Response: Hi Donna Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a nice review. It was a pleasure having you and Dr. Aaron as our guests in our Villa in Tortuga Bay. It always makes us happy when our Guests expectations have been met. I am glad that you and your family enjoyed Rosa's cooking. She is a very talented young lady and both her and Edmond " Chiquitico" bring to our guests that wonderful feeling of being truly welcomed. Best wishes for all of you and hope to see you all back next year! Eduardo
