Why Georgette Almanzar chose Las Terrenas
This apartment has everything that's necessary for a vacation property. The terrace with Jacuzzi and the beach view from within are stunning!!! I smile in satisfaction ans accomplishment and just draw that picture in my heart and say to myself….this is for my own. I just love Las Terrenas for the nature, serenity, enjoyment, and the all blue shades beach water…as I call it.
What makes this Apartment unique
The Beach View, pool, garden and lake just puts it all together for a great investment. I'm personally in love with this property. The residential area is very secured and very well kept.

Great place and great staff
One of the best places to go in Las Terrenas, near to the Playa las ballenas.
On behalf of the entire staff at Aquamare, Thank you for trusting us with your vacation, you are a great guest, and will always be welcomed back.
The beach is calm and beautiful. Good place to relax. First night a lot of mosquitoes around but after that was perfect.
Thank you Sarah,
We have made it a point to fumigate every week, especially around rainy seasons. Thank you for your suggestions and we hope you trully enjoyed your stay with us.
Looking forward to welcoming you again.
Wonderful holiday March 16 to 30, 2019
I just spent two weeks here and the apartment is beautiful and well located. Beach is never busy and if you walk a short stroll to the left the water is that clear beautiful blue. Discovered a few things about the apartment after asking. The air conditioners in the bedrooms only stay on if the door is closed. This makes sense as a cost saving measure. Power is very expensive in the DR. We stocked up with groceries at Lindo, they sell everything. It is a 30 min walk into "town" or a short motoconcho ride. Taxis are expensive but necessary to bring the load of groceries home. We hired the chef one night and it was fabulous. The food cost was $90 US for four but we had enough for two meals! $35 US for the service. Beach chairs are only for patrons of the various bars/restaruants. Sol Y Mar had good food and service from multi-lingual Leo BUT, he told us the owner said we had to order food, not just drinks to sit in the chairs. The next guy, Carlos, over was not so strict and was happy to have us sit there if we just ordered a drink or two. His passion fruit mojitos are to die for! Next to him you could just pay $150. DR pesos for a lounge. The food is cheap and we usually did end up having lunch there but Sol Y Mar lost us as customers as we felt not welcome and threatened. All in all, a great holiday. Concierge Oscar was readily available with any questions and answered quickly. Most Dominicans communicate with Whatsapp and it is easy to install the app on your phone.
Beautiful spot for a week with our two kids
This is a lovely spot. Modern, renovated, clean, with local point-person to help with questions. We enjoyed that it wasn't very busy (pool was quiet and walks on the beach in the early morning / later in the evening seemed like just us!) We appreciated pre-arranging our airport pick up so that we didn't have to worry about how to get to the condo. We were greeted by Oscar who showed us around the condo and gave us his contact information to help answer questions. It would have been very helpful if there was a binder of information in the condo that suggested where & how to grocery shop, get a motorcycle taxi, places to eat, ideas on local excursions, etc. We did figure all of that out ourselves eventually but it would have been useful to have some ideas. The condo is ground level, which was a new thing for us. We kept windows open all day, but closed up at night and turned on the air conditioning. The complex seems very safe with security 24-7. We had a bit of foot traffic in front of our condo since it's on the pathway to the pool for other guests, but we didn't mind too much. We loved our coffee in the morning enjoying the view and listening to the waves from our porch. The cleaning staff comes in every day to clean the dishes (best added bonus ever - who wants to do dishes on vacation). and make the beds, etc. We had Chef Danny come in and cook for us one night - that was a highlight and so delicious. We did the ATV Tour through Flora Tours that explored a mountain farm and two remote beaches (highly recommend since it's away from busy road traffic). We loved taking the motorbike taxis into town to the French Bakery for baguettes. We arranged a taxi van to take us to Bonita Beach and then Coson for the rest of the day (great waves to play in, very quiet) - Coson has a great restaurant right on the beach (basic, delicious, inexpensive). We love this area and would return again. Highly recommend.
Very Nice Place
We just returned from spending a week in Las Terrenas. We were 2 adults and 2 girls ages 11 and 13. Below are the good and bad of the condo.
Georgette is amazing. She was very helpful in answering my many questions prior to booking. Our flight in was delayed and we arrived at 2:00 in the morning instead of 5:00 pm. Georgette called me on my cell phone and made sure we could get in and made arrangements with the security guard to direct us to the correct unit, as it might be hard to find for a first time customer. Our concierge was Simon and he did a fantastic job helping us with anything we needed, including chef service for dinner one night and breakfast a 4 mornings.
The location of the unit is perfect with walking access to the pool and beach. There are restaurants along the road to town, but the majority of restaurants, shops, and the 2 grocery stores, are 1.5 - 2 miles from the condo. A 4 wheeler, motorcycle, or golf cart is a must. You could also drive a car but that would provide difficulty with parking.
The daily cleaning service is fantastic, ensuring a clean unit every day with fresh towels.
The cooking service is excellent with promptly prepared and tasty food. Whatever you want them to cook they will cook and do the shopping and cleaning.
The condo is clean and everything operated normally. The hot tub is a nice addition.
The town is amazing and safe with with great restaurants and nice people.
The beach is not 30 feet away. It is at least 200 - 300 yards away from the unit. It takes a couple minutes to stroll to the beach. This isn't necessarily bad, but a bit deceiving on the overview. The beachfront bar is right there too. They will charge you $10 USD per chair if you want to use their lounge chairs on the beach. This fee is waved if each person using a chair buys food.
There are no free bikes, paddle boats or kayaks.
The pool is nice. It's getting a bit worn down, but not bad at all. The picture in the writeup shows 13 chairs with umbrellas. There are no umbrellas, 9 chairs, and some of them are ripped and not usable. We never had a problem finding a usable chair.
The unit is pretty much as pictured, but it is getting a bit worn out. The mirrors are chipping, there is a small amount of mold in the shower. These are minor issues, but you should know it does not look brand new.
All in all we had a fantastic vacation and we would definitely recommend and would return.
Second time staying at Aquamare, can't wait for our third!
This was our second year in a row staying at Aquamare and we can't wait to go back. The accommodations are beautiful, comfortable and located on the best section of Playa Las Ballenas. Stephany and Franco are wonderful hosts and made sure we had everything we needed. The condo is exactly as pictured - clean and contemporary.
This exquisite beach view luxury apartment is located at The Bonita Village Residence, just 60ft away from the aqua-shades waters of Playa Las Ballenas, Las Terrenas, Province of Samana, at the Dominican Republic.

The gorgeous tropical lush garden and exotic fauna and flora, the indulging 105ft swimming pool, and the garden water lake that meets with the river flow at Playa Las Ballenas; are only a few of the greatest views and attractions to enjoy from the apartment.
