Wonderful Peaceful Retreat
This place is a piece of paradise. We have stayed two years in a row and would like to return again. Beds comfortable, cleanly kept. The support staff (while not English speaking use their phones for translation and take wonderful care of us).
Comfortable villa with all amenities. Attentive staff, including daily housekeeping, and laundry was terrific. Thank you Naomi. Nice driver, Chicho, who picked us up in Santo Domingo to drive us to Bavaro. All arranged through the owner, Brad.
Los Corales Village has a beautiful garden location with easy access to beach and town. Everything walkable. For local eateries, I highly recommend the French bakery and juice bars for breakfast, and for dinner, Citrus and Taino restaurants. We booked our island excursions through Visita Republica Dominica, which is inside Los Corales Village. Melvin, the owner, speaks English well, and organized great visits around the island for us. Take his private all-day tour to Samoa Island. Unforgettable!
My daughter had an injury on the beach in front of the villas and many kind local people helped us out, including the man who helped us with the beach chairs every morning, who we fondly call “Papa”. He carried our teenaged daughter back to the villa. A local doctor sutured her up in the villa, which was much more comfortable for her and convenient for us than going to the local hospital, especially during the Easter holiday! Thank you Dr Josef!
The only minor annoyance on our first day was the hustlers on the beach who run/own the local “shopping center”. They were a bit insistent on selling us everything from excursions to souvenirs, alcohol and tobacco products. They don’t give up easily. Just beware of this. If you don’t wish to give them your business, don’t engage them in conversation and be firm and clear. “No gracias, we are all set. We would like to be left alone.” They will respect your wishes.
All in all this was a very good, stress free, and fun family vacation for us!
We had a great time!
The villa was very close to the beach, and to the restaurants and markets. The place was very quiet and peaceful, great for a family vacation!
Very nice quiet relaxation
A couple of times the water was off for short duration, but not a big deal. Several different types of restaurants close by, short walk to a great beach, very nice!

We loved the area and the information that they gave us was helpful. Villa had just the right space for the 4 of us for 5 days. We liked that it was close to the ocean, and 3 restaurants right in area, all wonderful and good selection. Another plus was a dessert spot called Joy had frozen pops of all flavors to enjoy at night(our favorite). We had transportation and a maid for the villa which was a nice perk. Overall our experience was delightful.
Very nice! Clean! Good location
We had a wonderful vacation with our daughter and two grandchildren. Chicho met us at the airport and Morena met us at the villa. Both very nice and well organized. The villa is clean and has everything you could need. We stayed in for breakfast and lunch and ate dinner out. The Italian restaurant and the Joy popsicles were a hit. The pool is close as well as the beach. A close walk to the bakery, small grocery stores and restaurants off the resort. There is sand toys and snorkeling equipment as well. The screened in area is a lovely spot. Security is present. We felt safe at all times. We would definitely go back.
