                                      Cap Cana is an Incredible Private Complex

                                      5 of 5
                                      Tropical Dream is a well laid out villa with two main buildings. The main building houses 4 bedrooms the kitchen and family rooms. The second building has 4 more bedrooms and a squash court. The facility is loaded with things to do such as a basketball court, very small gym, pool table, fuse ball, Ping-Pong and of course swimming pools and a hot tub. Make sure you have a golf cart to zip around the huge complex, beaches etc.. The property is well maintained and very clean (although all the wood needs stain and varnish) as the hot sun is tough on exposed wood. The staff of 4, cook, butler, and 2 maids are pleasant and serve tasty local food. They mean well but they are not Michelin trained by any means and speak mostly French so communicating is a bit tough. Overall a very good experience in the DR.
