Guestbook comments from the manager

This place was a dream come true for our family. It's magical, quiet, close enough to everything, beautiful, tranquil, serene and relaxing. I'm not sure who loved it more, our toddlers or the grandparents. Luxury in the midst of an authentic Las Terrenas area with the perfect combination of amazing beach, private pool, larger pool, and lovely staff. Highly recommended.

After staying in Puerto Rico, Cuba and Martinica, this is by far our favorite vacation spot.

The ocean and beaches are beautiful, having an option of the pool is great also. Excellent restaurants, large grocery stores are great to have access to.

Stephanie is wonderful, very caring and attentive. Housekeeping services are also superb!

Our journey to Las Terrenas was a bit rough. When we got to the area we were lost. We parked and I called Stephanie. Stephanie is/was OUTSTANDING! She and Franco rescued us....Stephanie was able to have Franco meet us and bring us back to the villa. When we got to the villa, we were amazed...this place is gorgeous! Once we were able to get settled, we spent a few minutes looking around. The space, the pool, the bedrooms, etc....just beautiful! The space in the villa was great for my family of 4. My 8 yo took advantage of the pool and Jacuzzi every day and every night. My kids loved their bedrooms and attached en-suites. Stephanie was very helpful with anything that we needed. The daily housekeeping was great. We cooked some of our meals, ate at a few restaurants but highly recommend hiring the private chef - Danny. We had Danny cook a couple of meals and they were fantastic. The beach area was not far and we walked there a few times during our stay. We found the beach was more crowded on the weekend and less during the week. We rented the ATVs, did an excursion and we enjoyed them. Las Terrenas is a beautiful area and the people are so kind and helpful. Vacations are important to us and we were able to relax, enjoy the surroundings and not stress. It was our first visit to the DR and we had a great time here. We will definitely be returning!

Paradise found!

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to sum up our week at this beautiful location in words - everything was perfect! The house was the perfect fit for our family of 5 - plenty of space to hang out together and then more than enough space to enjoy some alone time. The house is beautifully decorated, the open space is so inviting. The air-conditioned bedrooms were a welcome respite after long, glorious days in the sun. We loved having our personal pool and jacuzzi on the balcony. The beach was a very short walk away. Daily housekeeping was a treat and superbly done. We highly recommend hiring the chef service - Danny was amazing and happily accommodated our daughter's vegetarian requests. Stephanie was outstanding and made our stay so relaxing by arranging taxis, excursions and helping with anything we asked of her. The area of Las Terranas was so beautiful. We enjoyed the local restaurants and markets. We will absolutely be returning here!

Very impressed with this property

  • 5 of 5

Our initial communication was with Emma and she made our decision to stay at the villa easy, immediate responses and ease of final arrangement for our stay. Emma arranged for a taxi to meet us at the airport and drive us to the villa. When we cleared customs at Santa Domingo, there was a driver with our names on a sign and we experienced a very safe 2 hour drive to the villa.

We stayed at the villa for one month and it was great. The villa is better than the pictures and we can't say enough good things about the staff. When we arrived Franco carried the suitcases up the stairs to our rooms, he brought water everyday and keep the deck and pool clean. Stephany greeted us and gave us a phone to call whenever we needed anything and we took advantage of her offer during our stay. She was great and answered every call from us and satisfied every request, from a need for a taxi to go out to eat or setting up tours for our group. No one in our group spoke spanish, however, everywhere we went in Las Terrenas the people were very friendly and made every effort to help us.

We had Danny, a chef at the villa ,cook several meals for us and recommend you have him cook for you when you stay. There is a daily fee for the chef, $35.00, and you will pay that at the end of your stay. Danny will show you the bills for food bought for the meal and you will pay him for that at the time. Cost of food for meals he cooks are very reasonable.

When you want to go out to eat in Las Terrenas, there are a lot of choices, all good. There are french restaurants, Italian restaurants and local restaurants. Stephany can direct you to the best of these. There are 2 french bakeries, a gelato place, a Churo stand, etc.

The large pool is a short walk from the villa and just beyond that is the beach. There was never a crowd at the beach, as a matter of fact, during our stay we were the only ones on the beach most of the time. There are a couple of restaurants close to the beach that will bring drinks out to the beach or you can walk over to there place. They are local owners and most do not speak english, and these are not fancy places but the food is good. They will also set up chairs for you, for 100 pesos(about $2.00) for the whole day. The ocean at this section of the beach has very small waves and a gentle slow, great for kids. There are other beaches in the area you can visit, some with big waves during certain times of the year.

Rent the small Sailboat, Fun!

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very pleasant experience staying at Ribera Mar. From the beginning of the booking process Emma was very helpful and very responsive to any of our inquiries. She made the reservation for our excursion to Salto Limon which we loved!!!. At arrival Stefany was very attentive and available for any of our questions. We were a group of 6. The villa is beautiful. The rooms were spacious and very comfy. We spent most of our trip at the villa we just enjoyed the comfort, the views from the pool. The location was perfect not far from the main town but very quiet and peaceful. We felt very safe the complex was well guarded by gates and security. We didn't get the chef service because we didn't mind cooking ourselves. The villa was equip with everything we needed to cook and having the grill by the pool was a plus! We will definitely stay here again.
