Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Puerto Plata - Villa Playamor

5BR Oceanside Vacation Rental Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic

This luxury oceanside villa features a panoramic view, a private pool, and a housekeeper/cook. It has five bedrooms and eight baths; and it comfortably sleeps up to 16 persons.

Let our spacious new luxury Villa Playamor pamper you in paradise. Our 6,200 square-foot villa is perched on a gentle hillside overlooking the beautiful mile-long Cofresi beach, one of the finest beaches on the Dominican Republic's north shore. Playamor is only a fifteen-minute walk from the spectacular new Ocean World marine eco-park.

Villa Playamor is designed for couples, small groups, or large family reunions. Gather with friends and family on the large terraces overlooking the beach and mountains. Enjoy gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, and the constant cooling trade winds. Or escape to the privacy of your air-conditioned bedroom and private balcony.

Playamor can sleep ten adults in private bedrooms with private baths.

The villa also has the capacity to sleep another six guests on convertible beds in other rooms.

Couples can expect an intimate experience with the upper private terrace being just right for romantic dinners and cuddling in the moonlight. The discrete staff will afford you all the privacy you desire. The private walled pool is perfect for a midnight skinny dip.

Small groups and large families will appreciate the two large family rooms, and the porches and terraces. Our dining table normally seats 12; and the porches can be set up for informal dining. But, if your family is like ours -- and you would like a little privacy from time to time, you will also appreciate the personal space and quiet time afforded by your large bedroom, private bathroom and balcony.

Relax on the porches; catch rays poolside; play and swim at the beach; or participate in one of the many North Shore tours and attractions that can be arranged for you by our American manager.

When you're ready, our bilingual housekeeper will serve you her fresh pina coladas and tasty snacks poolside or on the porch. Then she will pamper your palates with a dinner that you can choose from her extensive culinary repertoire.

If you decide to eat out, there are a number of excellent restaurants within a short walk or ride from the villa.

Your kids will love the beach and the pool. And when it's time to come in out of the sun, they'll enjoy the ping-pong table, video games, and DVDs that we have provided.

For our handicapped guests, Playamor was designed with your special needs in mind. The entire main floor and the pool area are wheelchair accessible. Your private bath is designed to allow wheelchair access as well. If you need special assistance, our staff can arrange to have someone available as needed. And should you need medical care, there is a 24-hour medical clinic only a few hundred yards from the front door and we have an American trained doctor on call for visits to the villa.

Playamor shares beautiful Cofresi Beach with two world-class resorts and the new marine eco-park, Ocean World. The coral sand is cool on the feet and soft to the touch. There is ample shade provided by swaying palms and lush sea grapes for those who have had enough sun but still want to enjoy the atmosphere. On one end of the mile-long beach there are rocks and coral that invite snorkelers. There are usually breakers for body surfing in some areas; but the rest is just right for wading. There are no rip tides, no dangerous undertows, and no jelly fish at Cofresi. The only sharks that you'll see are in the shark habitat at Ocean World.

Quaint Dominican souvenir kiosks are set along the beach area; but you will not be hassled by hawkers on the beach itself. That is not allowed. Beach chairs and water toys are available at stands up and down the beach.

For exciting nightlife, the casinos and Caribbean discos in Puerto Plata provide an electric atmosphere.

About The Spencers

Norman Spencer is a Pediatrician and Harletta is a nurse. They are proud parents and grandparents and their family thinks Playamor and the Cofresi area are the greatest place in the world. Norm and Harletta make their permanent home outside Nashville, Tennessee.

The Spencers purchased this villa in 1995

Why The Spencers chose Puerto Plata

We found the Dominican Republic by a happy accident and fell in love with the wonderful people. They are always friendly and helpful. Playamor sits above the beach area so that we can take advantage of the cooling trade winds and lovely views.

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 out of 5
I stayed at Villa Playamor for a week for Spring break and loved it so much I came back for a return visit this past summer. My experience met and exceeded every expectation. The staff was wonderful and took care of our every want and need, the location was gorgeous, and the food was superb. There were plenty of activities within easy walking distance, e.g. the beach, OceanWorld, a casino, several restaurants/bars. Also there was a wide variety of excursions in which they would pick you up and take you on a Jeep safari, snorkeling scuba diving, shopping, you name it. I would highly recommend Villa Playamor or Simply Paradise to anyone planning a trip to the Caribbean.

Amazing Property

  • 5 out of 5
If you are looking for the vacation property of a lifetime Villa Playamor is the property for you. The pictures do not do this place justice either do 5 stars. The house is impeccably maintained and the views are amazing. The staff was cordial, professional and efficient. The first evening our group of 12 pooled $200 per person for food, beverages, gratuities which more than covered the week. Please note this group is big eaters. The excursions that were set up were extremely affordable in the $50 price range. I really suggest the tour which includes the waterfalls and countryside tour you really get a feel for the surrounding areas. The Cattamaran Tour is another great value and lunch is included. The pool at the villa was warm and inviting. The patios provided a great setting for this group of friends can relax and unwind. The villa is stocked with many dvds, books and games. Our group really enjoyed an evening playing Taboo. The beach is a 5 minute walk and the casino is less than 10. Speaking of the casino stick to blackjack as these slots are not loose. I would definitely suggest a day trip to Caberete Beach which was absolutely beatiful. Overall, Villa Playamor was the highlight of trip and for one cannot wait to return again. This is the perfect place for family reunions, group trips, a destination wedding or a business retreat.

Norm,
I cannot begin to put into words how much my family enjoyed our vacation this summer. The villa is more beautiful in person and the staff is absolutely THE BEST!
Thank you so much for everything you did to make our vacation wonderful. It exceeded all of our expectaions. We are just waiting for the next time we can visit the DR again. Perfect in every way.

Paradise

  • 5 out of 5
This was my second stay at Villa Playamor and both visits exceeded my expectations. The villa is spacious, clean, beautifully decorated, with amazing views of the ocean. The villa staff is helpful, hard working, and friendly with infectious smiles. Your stay here is completely carefree without worries of cleaning or cooking thanks to Nelly and Rosemary. Our group of 11 varied in age from toddler to adult and all had a fantastic time. I would highly recommend if dining out to try La Parillada Steakhouse in town--big portions, great food all at a reasonable price. The jeep safari tour was a hit with the waterfall climb in addition to the catamaran tour to get out at sea. Also, if looking for a beautiful, clean, sandy beach venture out to Cabarete (approx 50 min taxi ride from villa) and spend the day--lots of shops, bars, restaurants. Similar to another review, our group collected $200 per person at the beginning of the week for a "kitty" that was used for food, alcohol, and tips. Agree with having a calculator handy to convert currency. A big thank you to Dr. Spencer for sharing his piece of paradise with us. I hope I am blessed enough to return in the future.

Visitor

Went with a group of childhood friends and spouses. Had a wonderful time. The staff is very cordial and quick to accomodate. The villa is lovely and had plenty of room to spread out and relax. I only have two suggestions for making travel a little easier. If traveling with a large group, make a food/drink bank to draw from for when groceries are needed (maybe start with $150 per person). Have someone in the group bring a calculator for converting the currency at stores/restaurants etc. All in all I would definitely stay at this villa again!!

Playa Cofresi

Discos and casinos await your nighttime exploration in nearby Puerto Plata. And a 'must-see' is the new marine eco-park, Ocean World, where guests can interact with a variety of marine creatures -- and, of course, swim and play with the dolphins.

Golf: Hit the clubs to dance the night away to the beat of salsa and the meringue; or try your luck at one of the casinos. Our favorite nightlife, however, is to sit on the balcony and enjoy the millions of stars visible above the rollers on the ocean.

For golf enthusiasts, you'll be happy to know that some of the Caribbean's best courses are in the Dominican Republic. A fifteen-minute drive will put you on the beautiful courses at Playa Dorado; and an hour-long drive through the beautiful Dominican countryside will put you on the Robert Trent Jones course at Playa Grande. There will be no fighting for tee times, as our staff can make all the arrangements for you.

Cofresi offers beautiful coral, rocks and tropical fish for great snorkeling. There are many other areas a short drive or short boat trip away. North shore diving trips to reefs and wrecks can also be arranged by our staff.

Although the Dominican Republic is not yet known as a shopper's paradise, you'll find lots to take home.

Locally produced rums and famous cigars are favorites, as are the bright Caribbean paintings. The Dominican Republic is the only place in the world wherethe gemstone larimar; is found; and it's one of the few places in the world that mines amber. These jewels are readily available, as are others from jewelers in Puerto Plata.

The casual Dominican lifestyle fits perfectly with a relaxed vacation. But for those who insist on bringing work with them, internet access is available at Playamor; and a complete business center is available a short walk away.

Nellie, our cook and housekeeper, is a native of Puerto Plata. She is a superb cook, and will also clean daily and do your laundry. For larger groups, an assistant housekeeper will be provided at no extra charge. Our villa caretaker, Kendy, is tri-lingual and lives in separate quarters onsite to help you with all phases of your stay.
