I´ve been travelling a lot in my life and this time I chose a stopover at Dom Rep for some relaxing days to escape the heat of Cyprus on my way back to work. What a great choice! Not only the Island, the beach and the people but whow what a great estate at such a fair rate. Everything was in perfect condition, clean and arranged in the best of taste. Merci Richard - thanks to you we had an amazing time

Just great

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful holiday, it was as expected, the pictures corespond to the real thing and the service was excellent. Honestly, we were a little bit worried after reading the review from a gentlemen who had the bad luck to be in the villa during a power outgage so we contacted the owner to ask what happens if we would find ourselves in such a situation. He reassured us that in such cases, that are fortunately rare, the only thing he can do is to offer a free stay at an alternative date of our choice. He pointed out that unfortunately these events can never be excluded in countries like the domenican republic, its always dramatic for both parties. Also us experienced 2 short power outages and the inverters worked as they should. Our stay was spectacular and Richard and the staff has been very helpful to secure us. I can just recommend it.

Villa was inhabitable for half of the stay, owner doesn't reimburse

  • 1 of 5

We stayed at Villa Pachuco from July 19th and the plan was to stay until July 26th. The villa is ok, nice garden, decent pool, etc., lacks some maintenance, however the property manager answered pretty fast to fix what was necessary.

July 21st in the night we had a blackout, nothing unusual in Las Terrenas or Dominican Republic, but the inverter (backup power batteries) didn't kick in to provide electricity, so we were in the (pitch) dark. I asked the security guard about it who went looking for the key of the room where the inverter was, however before he found it the power came back on. Next day we checked the inverter and noticed the switch had been down, so we put it up, to make sure it would kick in in case of a new black out.

Friday 22nd at 8pm, the power went out again, again no inverter that kicked in, power came back after half an hour, I went checking the inverter again and noticed the back up batteries were completely dried out. Power went out again a few minutes later and this time it didn't com back. Security guard told me the batteries actually didn't provide for more than 1 or 2 hours anyway (which is weird because in my own setup at home with 4 equal batteries I get at least 12 hours). We spend the night without electricity, no fans, no light, no running water. Because of being extremely hot we (4 adults and 6 children) had a difficult night for not having air conditioner or at least a fan.

After we woke up we were told by the lady that would come to clean and a guy from the village that the power outages were due to sabotages and it would take probably until Monday for it to be repaired. Having no back up power whatsoever we realized we couldn't stay until Monday without electricity. Without being able to take showers, to use a refrigerator, being pitch dark after 8pm. The property manager came and she acknowledged that the villa was inhabitable without power and also told us it was unclear when the power would come back and likely it would last until after the weekend. We asked her to reimburse the remaining three nights so we could look for another place to spend the remainder of our vacations. She said she could not take that decision and we had to take it up with the owner. We contacted the owner, who said he regretted our experience but his policy was to not reimburse any money.

I obviously don't agree with that position and am looking into the steps I need to take locally here in DR to recover my loss.

Owner's Response: I have offered the customer a 100% reimbursement in form of a free stay at an alternate date. I am not the power authority and certainly can not do anything against this. Following, my communication to the client : … « In any case, when the electrical service is not provided by the company, the inverter provide electricity only for lights (this has been specified at the arrival) and never for neither the pumps (pool & house) nor the fridge. Furthermore, the inverters are not supposed to operate more than 3 to 4 hours, and as Isabelle told me, the batteries was operational at the beginning of the strike and could operate for a 4 hours run. I can also specify that the others villas around was rented too and every clients (even not resident as you are) has understood that the owners cannot do anything in this special case (power cut during more than 4 consecutive days of the supplier of electricity). All the village has suffered from this pitiful incident, everyone were obliged to throw their groceries of their fridge after 24 hours of cut, it is about a pitiful incident which is not of our responsibility.  Again, I am so sorry about your stay and I am really disappointed that you condemn me for a fault which is not due to me. In any case, I reiterate my offer of a free week at an other date of your choice during the next 12 months. Hoping that you will understand me and that you will accept my compensation, I thank you in advance. » ... For customers that are worried, I advice to make a holiday insurance in their home country. This is the safest way when travelling abroad. Richard

"JUST WHAT WE WERE LOOKING FOR"

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a Caribbean vacation to celebrate our 30th anniversary and wanted to experience natural beaches without the stacked condos and resorts. We wanted a good location with privacy and something that we could cook a few meals in.

After seeing the pictures and reading the reviews of what villa Pachuco offered, it sounded perfect. After spending 9 nights there, we can say it was exactly what we were looking for and more.

We loved the fact that you can walk to the beach, town and plenty of restuarants to choose from. After a couple days of settling in we felt perfectly safe walking at night. Isabelle, the property manager and local expert can answer your questions and help with scheduling any activities or adventures. We rented a vehicle for the week but really did not use it since there are so many things walking distance.

Next time we will shuttle from the airport and rent a quad (atv) or motorcycle for the days we want to adventure out more. Our favorite activites were, El Limon, taking photos and snorkeling at Bonita, beach walking, Sunday (family day) at Luis-Coson.

This was our first International trip and we enjoyed every minute of it.

Thanks Isabelle for everything! Hope to see you soon,

Finally, an individual system of water filtration is added to the specific characteristics of the villa. Finally, the rest conditions are ensured by high-end bedding and location of the villa away nocturnal nuisances.
