exaggeratedly relaxing!!!!!

5 of 5
This was our first trip to PUNTA CANA and we absolutely loved it! The owner was perfect at any time if our reservation and the apartment was wonderful. The airport of punta cana is very near,only a few minutes of the unit. Everything was very clean and well decorated. The description and the pictures deliver a very good impression. Inside the unit you would find all you could need. The location is very good. We had the beach in front of the terrace, only a few steps. We loved the terrace..,we spend most of day lying on the chaise longue ,listening the ocean and reading, was exaggeratedly relaxing!!!!!! The building have some very good restaurants so we had dinner at the building, I recommend the restaurants a lot We can recommend the apartment without any doubts! Thank you very much!!!!
