I wanted to extend an enormous thank you to you and your staff. The house was a beautiful and amazing experience for all of us. The accommodations were extremely comfortable for my party/guests of 26 adults and 3 children (under 5). Your staff was a dream to work with and they catered to every need with the utmost importance and diligence. Every single one of my family and friends can not stop talking about the wonderful time and the amazing food prepared each day by Omar. I had read previous reviews about Omar's exquisite cooking skills but to actually experience it was such a pleasure. Jose (bartender) was extremely attentive to us and every detail. His knowledge and relationships in town made anything that we needed just appear in a matter of minutes. Those two gentlemen are worth their weight in gold! Your housekeeping staff worked effortlessly to tend to any needs we had in the bedrooms. They made cleaning the enormous villa seem like a walk in the park. You barely ever saw them and the work seemed to get done, they were never in the way.
The buzz about doing this again is already in the air. We will definitely consider and recommend Villa del Mar for future trips.
Thank you again!
Every year our family does a beach vacation on the east coast in the US. I have 6 brothers and sisters and my mother has 16 Grandchildren. This year my Mother is turning 80 so we wanted to do something special. So we booked Villa Del Mar based on the web page and reviews.
Our trip exceeded our expectations. Omar and Jose (cooks and bar tenders) were great. The meals were fabulous. How great is it to eat lunch on a bar stool in the house pool. Highly recommend the Pig Roast, it was awesome. We also rented Olivia's Sail Boat for the day and her crew was great. It was a much better value than the other excursions that were offered. Make sure you walk down to Luis's bar on the beach.
We had a family reunion with 19 adults ranging from ages 17 to 86 stay at the Villa Del Mar for a week in March. Everything definitely had the WOW factor, from the house, the pool, the beach, and most importantly the staff! Omar the cook was out of this world! We have some picky eaters & they ate EVERY meal, tried new things, and even went back for seconds! Jose also was so accommodating and helpful in helping us make delicious from scratch drinks, renting boogie boards, shopping at local markets and for fresh fish on the beach, to helping us find our ATV and whale watching tours....both were excellent and I would highly recommend!! Omar & Jose went above and beyond any expectations and became like one of our family!!! Jenny the housekeeper and her helper were also so nice and accommodating! The beach and the pool area are just like they look in the pictures....AMAZING!!! We had huge waves so renting boogie boards was a must! We played volley ball on the front lawn almost every day, used the pool table, and took amazing walks on the beach! There was plenty of space even for a large group like ours and we never felt on top of each other.....if fact, if anything you could definitely find your own quiet space to curl up and read a book or take a relaxing nap. It was one of our best vacations ever and we would definitely go back! The only recommendations we would have is to bring some bug spray....not sure what bit most of our group but we had many bites and the itched like crazy! Also, the pool area is very slick and we had several people fall despite being careful so maybe some mats or rugs around the edges would be helpful....having "pool toys" like floaters or noodles would be awesome for the pool area. On a scale of 1 to 10 we rate it a 20!! Thank you Olivia, Omar, Jose, and Jenny for providing us with an AMAZING vacation!!!!!
Wow this place greatly exceeded our expectations!!! I went with a group of 25 people who have all been to the Dominican Republic before and said this was the best trip they have ever been on. The villa was super clean at all times and maintained very well by the staff! As beautiful and amazing as this house is, my favorite part was the staff! Their overall service to ensure we had everything we needed and making sure we were having a great time was very impressive! The manager of the property was a sweetheart, she made us feel very welcomed and comfortable. I would highly recommend this listing to anyone looking for a big space!
I booked this villa a while back and there were virtually no reviews on the sites about it, so really had little to go on outside of 1 review and the photos, which looked great, but as you know these can sometimes be misleading. In reality these photos didn't do any justice to how amazingly beautiful and well situated this villa actually is, the 1 review was excellent and was completely accurate.
We had a very large group, ranging from young children (5 years) to grandparents (80's) and everyone commented on how amazingly well suited the accommodation was for everyone involved. You literally walked across a short (and well kept) lawn onto a private beach, and although we were all together there was never a sense of being on top of each other.
The staff were excellent, and I must thank Jose and Omar in particular for making our trip as good as it was. We had some reservations over the set-up with the food initially, as we needed to get the staff to buy groceries and then cook, but this was completely unfounded; the food was excellent, reasonably priced and extremely well cooked, with a good variety to keep everyone happy.
There are a range of activities in the area; horse riding, scuba, trip to the waterfalls, zip lining, kite surfing, fishing, etc. so loads there for active groups like ourselves, but equally you could just relax all day in the villa and pool.
Las Terrenas town is only a short drive away, and there are a number of good quality restaurants and bars, and around the corner (and in walking distance from the Villa along the beach) there are a number of other restaurants and bars available as well. It’s definitely worth a walk (or drive) down to Louis’s around the corner where you will get the best Pina Colada we've ever tasted!
This was truthfully one of the best holidays we have had in years and I would highly recommend both this villa and the Dominican Republic in general.
Our stay at your villa was a marvelous experience. It was beyond our expectations. The beauty of the villa and the beach took our breath away each day. The pool, pool table, ping pong table and other amenities were used daily. The hospitality and helpfulness of the staff was greatly appreciated.. The meals were delicious and enjoyed by all, even the children. It was an experience we will always remember.
Other Activities: Kite surfing
