My name is Emil, I was raised in the Dominican. Republic. I own and operate my own business.

I went to an American school in Santo Domingo and after graduation studied marketing at INTEC (TECHNOLOGICAL INSTITUTE OF SANTO DOMINGO).

I currently live in Santo Domingo.

Emil Ysona purchased this apartment in 2012

I recently purchased this property because I love this area. I have been coming here since I was a child and finally decided to buyhave my own place here. Its just a 95 minute drive from where I live and my kids love it here.

This is a very special private apartment complex. Its operated by Small Luxury Hotels, and I am one of the few that has a private property here. Amenity's are first rate, and its very quiet. You actually feel is all for your self here.

The beach is secluded and I have never seen more than 10-15 people at once on the beach. There is also 24 hour security at the beach and around the complex.

If you get tired of all the quiet relaxing time, The town is a 10 minute drive. Night clubs and restaurants are a common sight.

Simply undiscovered paradise suitable for romantic hideways as well as for vacation with small kids

  • 5 out of 5
We just loved the place and would love to return any time and here is why:

The beach is simply spectacular. It is a long sandy beach with turquoise blue waters, appropriate for swimming (although there are some waves, but this makes it even more interesting), palm trees and nice “golfcourse like” grass just behind the sand. The beach has a bar and a restaurant, a very pleasant place with delicious choices. We even met Selena Gomez with her friends one day, having a late lunch in the beach restaurant. There is another very nice beach just few hundred meters away, where you can also eat pizza and hotel staff can drive you there free of charge with a golf cart.

The apartment is a part of SHL (Small Luxury Hotels chain) resort, which is one of the reasons why it is so unique. You have on your disposal all the facilities and staff of the hotel, but on the other hand you have your own private apartment. Just few steps outside the apartment is a big nice pool with the bar next to it (what we loved is that the pool has some part suitable for small kids as well as quite a large surface to swim). There is another pool just next to the beach and it was never too crowded, so we could easily relax there. We loved also small speakers next to the deck chairs, where we enjoyed relaxing music and drink our cocktails, while watching our kids having fun and enjoying the pool ☺. There is also a restaurant just few steps from the apartment, where we tried out a fabulous breakfast and also a delicious dinner.

The place is positioned few miles from the Las Terrenas downtown, where you can find shops and a big supermarket. Although we did not have our own car, we easily arranged the transfer at the hotel.

There are also all sorts of day trips and diving, which can be arranged via resort reception, but this time we did not explore much, since kids are so young and we were so fond of the resort itself. But surely we will try out next time!

What makes this apartment even more unique and special is a housemaid at your disposal, named Negra! She is extraordinarily polite, cleans the apartment, can go for you to the grocery store and even cook lunch for you! Her cooking was fabulous and she even prepared the table with a special touch:) By having her at your disposal it just makes this place a real paradise!

We would just love to come back to this paradise, although it is a long trip with two small kids from Europe, but it is just more than worth it! See you:)

A Gem, Simply Amazing... but keep it to yourself!

  • 5 out of 5
I debated whether or not to write a review at all, since plenty of reviewers had already and eloquently praised the apartment, the Sublime Samana Hotel, Las Terrenas, Negra and Emil, so what else could I add, right?

The truth is, we absolutely fell in love with the place, and we just want to keep it for ourselves (sorry Emil)...

The booking was seamless, Emil is an attentive and caring host, who will promptly answer all your questions before and during your stay, and will do anything to make your experience the best possible.

The apartment is spacious, quiet, well equipped, ideally located by the pool, yet tucked away from any foot traffic. The decoration is elegant and contemporary and provides the utmost comfort for a family of 4 (or more). The kitchen is very functional, and Emil even stocked a cold pack of Presidente beer in the fridge!

Sublime Samana is a boutique hotel elegantly decorated and oozes relaxed luxury, with a friendly staff always ready to help throughout the day. The beach is, without a doubt one of the most exquisite and breathtaking I have ever seen, and stretches for miles. We counted 15 people on the beach on Saturday, but the rest of the week, we had the beach to ourselves! Plenty of activities available free of charge (tennis, gym, kayaking, snorkeling, windsurfing...) just ask the staff and they will set you up.

The food at the hotel is good, but honestly we relied mostly on... (and this is the part where I get emotional) the woman extraordinaire, always smiling and an outstanding cook: Negra! Negra is fantastic, her motto: just ask and I deliver with a smile! Negra does everything, she cooks, cleans, does your laundry, even grocery shops for you... Negra made our stay a worry free holiday, and that for us was priceless!

The hotel is about 3 miles from Las Terrenas, where you will find lots of restaurants, shops and a very well stocked French supermarket (who knew?), with an impressive wine selection and delicacies.

We decided to rent a car from Santo Domingo, and I have to say that it was very easy to get to the hotel, thanks to the brand new highway that covers the 2 hour trip through the country. The tolls are about $40 each way, but well worth it if you want to drive around and discover Las Terrenas, Samana and the surrounding area.

In short, we had the most relaxing, stress-free vacation ever at Las Terrenas and we can't wait to go back to Emil's apartment. Merci Emil et Negra!

Paradise!!

  • 5 out of 5
I recently just stayed at this apartment with my husband (we are in our early 30s) and my parents. We had been looking at the Sublime Samana resort, but when we found this apartment for a portion of the price we decided to book- and boy are we happy that we did!! As a tenant you get all the amenities of the resort- its beautiful semi-private beach with super-comfortable beach chairs, 2 full size swimming pools, a 24hr conceirge, and a gym. The beach is one of the best we have been to- we would walk for miles and only see a handful of people. The resort itself is beautifully appointed- it is luxurious without being stuffy and the grounds and landscaping are perfectly manicured at all times. I would say my only complaint regarding the resort are the two restaraunts- the food was average and became a bit boring after a few meals (as the menu does not change daily)....but this is rescued by Negra!! By staying in this apartment, you have the option of eating a few meals at the restaraunts or having Negra cook for you! Negra is the housekeeper/chef for the apartment and she is a gem!! She looked after us for the entire week (even surprising us by doing our laundry a few times!) She cooked an amazing Dominican-style breakfast for us every morning (fresh squeezed passionfruit juice, canteloupe smoothies, eggs, potatoes, fresh coffee) and made several dinners for us too. Her food was better than any meal we had out of the apartment! We loved everything about it and are already planning our next trip back!!

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 out of 5
Sublime Samana Resorts including the wonderful Negra who cooked and cleaned and took care of us is a MUST see experience. The unit we stayed in was perfect, loved having the pool right there and the unforgettable beach and ocean only steps away was amazing. The price for an experience like we had could have not been possible in our lifetime. We loved it and can't wait to go back.

Home away from home....

  • 5 out of 5
We were 2 couples that stayed for 6 nights, and it was GREAT!
The apartment is located in a luxury boutique hotel, and you get all the amenities of the hotel at your disposal (Tennis courts, gym and wifi in the entire hotel property at no charge, also a SPA on site that is spectacular, concierge and front desk service available). There is also 24 hour security, so we felt very comfortable leaving the apartment and move around.
The beach next to the hotel is one of the nicest beaches we have been at. The coast right in front of the hotel is beautiful, white sand, quiet beach, with a lot of privacy. At night you can go watch the skies and look for falling stars – a real serenity. If you continue to the east (10 min walk) you will come upon "Louis" where you can eat the best Red Snapper and drink the best Pina-Colada in the DR – Guaranteed!
If you wish to move around Las Terrenas you should use a vehicle. We rented a 4-wheeler and traveled to other beaches and the country side. The hotel offers you a round trip, all day, deal with a taxi company.
And of course you have Negra (as she insisted we call her), the house made. All we read about her in other reviews is true. She is more than wonderful, and thanks to her we felt at home!
We happened to meet Emil, the owner, as he was on a vacation not far from the hotel and he is a great guy! He takes this apartment business very seriously and it was very important to him that we enjoy our stay. He was available all the time via e-mail or cellphone and answered all our questions. You can be calm regarding all money transfer issues :)
We are sure you will enjoy your visit and shouldn’t miss it!

An excellent location, a great value and that's not even the best part!

An excellent location, a great value and that's not even the best part!
  • 5 out of 5
Let's start here, the location itself is amazing.

The development, Sublime Samaná, is a paradise sandwiched between a mountain covered with palm trees and a beautiful beach (playa Cosón) about 10-15 minutes from town. The grounds are clean, safe and extremely well kept all the time.
This specific villa is located on the ground floor right next to one of the two pools available and is clean, comfortable and cooled by central A/C so you don't have to suffer the heat while indoors (unless you want to). The beds are comfortable and spacious enough that even on the room with the two beds, two adults could share a bed comfortably - if they really like each other. There are TVs on the living area and the master suite.

The indoors living and dining area is comfortable and nicely furnished but in a way that's not sterile and bland... At all times you feel the warmth that makes you feel like you are in someone's home, not a hotel.

The pools are quite nice and so is the beach with its nice golden sand and warm waters. We took 2-3h morning walks around the beach on a daily basis and I must say that more often than not you feel like you're the only one there. If you go, I recommend you walk left first, it's nicer.

But like other reviewers here have already said, the best part of the experience is the wonderful lady (Negra) that helps in the villa. This wonderful lady is nothing short of incredible. She takes care of EVERYTHING so that you can focus on just enjoying your time there. To be more precise, she will cook, find fresh fish and produce, clean and tidy up the place and overall take care of anything related to the villa. She basically takes this experience to another level by allowing you to just relax and enjoy the place. Priceless.

Finally, I'd like to conclude by saying that the owner is quite a pleasure to deal with. The booking process was seamless, simple and fair.

In the end, after staying in this villa on three separate occasions, this review was well overdue.
So having loved the experience all three times (summer, fall and spring) all I can do is leave you with those three words made so famous by Mr. Arnold...

I'll be back!
(And thank you Emil and Negra!)
