From Jorge Elizardo
Definitivamente estas fueron las mejores vacaciones que hemos tenido. Mi esposa y yo estamos totalmente satisfecho con nuestras vaciones en este apartamento. El apartamento es muy acogedor, fresco y confortable. El apartamento está bien equipado y sus equipos son eficientes. El apartamento tiene una excelente vista al mar y al área social de la piscina y con un acceso rápido y cerca del apartamento, en pocas palabras el apartamento está ubicado dentro del residencial en uno de los mejores lugares del complejo.
El personal de Staff es excelente .Las atenciones recibidas y siempre dispuesta de la señora Margarita su Administradora. Así como los atentos y dispuestos siempre señores Alejandro y Gabino, los cuales pueden ser llamados en todo momento y relativamente a cualquier hora. Siempre recibimos de parte de ellos un servicio amable. Desde que llegamos de inmediato el señor Alejandro nos informo de todas las normas y manejos del complejo así como de los diferentes sitios que podíamos visitar y de las actividades que podiamos realizar.
Uno de esos sitios que visitamos fue el Salto Limón, el cual fue una de las experiencias más bonitas que hemos tenido en nuestras visitas a diferentes sitios del país, esta experiencia sencillamente es inolvidable.
La experiencia fue tan buena en este apartamento que proximamente mi esposa y yo volveremos a contactar este apartamento para ver su disponibilidad y asi volver a disfrutar del, Sol, Mar y Arena de Las Terrenas. UN LUGAR HERMOSO .
Nos plus belles vacances!!!!!
Voilà un appartement charmant, spacieux, bien équipé en tout et très propre. Avec deux balcons merveilleux, on est pratiquement les pieds dans l’eau. Les lits des deux chambres sont grands et très bons. Les salles de bains sont très jolies. La salle de séjour et sa cuisine américaine complète sont des plus confortables. Le sable de la plage est rose et la mer calme grâce à la barrière de coraux et donc chaude. Nos petits enfants ont pu se baigner sans risque avec toute la liberté des vacances. Les cocotiers nous ont permis de faire de longues siestes. Les enfants ont aimé les piscines et nous le jacuzzi, toujours bien entretenus. L’appartement est près des épiceries (colmados) et d’un supermarché très bien achalandé. A quelques enjambées, les restaurants et pizzerias vous tendent les bras. Nous avons aussi gouté de la cuisine locale et du pot au feu dominicain délicieux. Nous devons remercier Sandra, la propriétaire, et le staff de Palmeraie pour leurs attentions et leur suivi au cours de notre séjour. Rien ne nous a manqué et notre séjour a été merveilleux. Notre seul regret, en partir. Nous reviendrons.
The unit is very nice and spacious, with plenty of room for a large family like ours (we are a family of 6). It is nicely decorated and very soon you feel like home!! The scenery is gorgeous, nice beach view from the apartment. The condo is just across the street from a beautiful endless sandy beach with warm clear water. The beach is also protected by a coral reef, making it very safe for kids.
It's a great place for adventure!! Rent a quad and discover beautiful untouched beaches, or go horseback riding to "Salto el limon" or just to chill and relax!!
The sailing schools is walking distance from the apartment, also restaurants featuring local and European dishes, fresh fish and seafood is the specialty of the area.
The cleaning/Laundry service was helpful; you just need to let them know when you want the apartment cleaned. There are 2 swimming pools and a hot tub that are great for night swimming! Our entire stay was very smooth.
We flew in to Samana Airport El Catey, and took a cab to the property, is a 20 minute ride with beautiful coast scenery and a taste of small nearby villages.
It's the perfect getaway!!! It is just hard to decide whether to tell the world or keep it a secret?
Under-equipped and unpolished unit for the extra price paid
The location was great. The complex itself well kept, situated across the street from beautiful beach. Pools were nice. Staff very friendly and helpful. However, the unit itself had water stains on the walls, a very uncomfortable couch in the living room, a broken shower head (was fixed quickly by staff), leaking toilet and bidet in bathroom, a shower curtain not long enough to keep water from getting on the floor, only ONE dull kitchen knife for cooking, no wine glasses, no dish towels, no large frying pan, furniture with crumbling handles, and for a family of 6 staying 6 days, no ability at all to wash/dry clothes on the grounds. We paid a premium for Easter Break (should have been a discount given the complete chaos and lack of peace that ensues that week). It would not take much to make this unit top notch, but it was not in a condition that warranted the price.
Won't disappoint you
This condo was a wonderful place to stay and Sandra, the owner was very helpful. When we inquired about availability, her place wasn't available for our last night and she found us accommodations right next door which was perfect. She answered my many questions as this was my first trip using HomeAway.com and after this experience I will definitely use it again. Hopefully visiting Las Terrenas and her condo again. The photos are a true representation of the unit, It was very nice and a comfortable home away from home. It is in a very good location right on the beach (with the cobblestone drive right separating you from the sand), with intimate beach restaurants right there for your dining pleasure. Sitting out on the terrace, overlooking the pool, the beach and blue waters it was truly paradise. The complex was very quiet and seemed like we were the only ones there at times, and many times we had the pool to ourselves. The staff there was very helpful as well, even though we didn't speak much Spanish. The beach in front is quite long in both directions and you can walk it into town and all of the restaurants in Fishermans Village. The sand is like powder in many places. True paradise, a good value and it is easy to recommend to friends and family!

If you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing stay near an authentic Dominican beach town, this is the perfect location for you! We were very fortunate to have found this lovely condo in Las Terrenas, thanks to some friends with local knowledge. This complex is situated across a very narrow cobblestone street- more like a walkway, with very little traffic - from a gorgeous beach. When you wake in the morning you are steps away from a number of little beach cafes right on the sand, where you can have breakfast made to order while you read or sip your coffee. Tourists you will meet are primarily European, giving the area an international flavour. Good restaurants for lunch and dinner are also only steps away. The town of Las Terrenas is clean and safe, and fun to explore on foot. Rent some quads in town and explore the nearby countryside and deserted beaches. You will not be pestered by beach vendors! The Dominican people are friendly and welcoming. For those wanting a glimpse of the real DR, this is a fantastic alternative to the all-inclusive resorts in the country!!
