Beautiful Penthouse Villa - Prime Beach Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family was impressed with this villa. Great location, great service from the concierge and the maid service. The beach only a few minutes walk is as good as you will find anywhere. Lots of great restaurants just a few minutes drive into town. We recommend this villa to anyone looking to spend a week in the Dominican Republic.

Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous

  • 5 of 5

I first found Villa Ribera Mar online and was amazed by the photos and how wonderful everything was. I have stayed in the Dominican Republic before, but it was closer to the airport. This place was a bit farther (we flew to SDQ) but it was more of an authentic experience with real dominican life. I chose this place because we had a wonderful jacuzzi, and there was a beach and pool within like a 1 minute walk. We stayed in the apartment. First off, communications with Emma prior to the booking the stay were amazing. She responded always immediately or within a few hours. She arranged for our transportation from the airport. It was wonderful once we finally arrived, our driver Jeffrey was waiting at the airport with a sign with my name! I felt like real royalty or an executive or something. He was really nice and told us about the DR and even stopped along the way for us to take photos by some beautiful landscapes. Once we arrived we had a wonderful meal of calamari and red snapper prepared by Donny. I really suggest this because you might not want to cook or go out to dinner the first night there. We also had our groceries there on arrival because its nice to come to the villa and not have to worry about doing anything the first night. Stephanie, our concierge was amazing, we had our own cell phone to use to call her and she checked in on us everyday. We got to even choose when the housekeeping came which was amazing, we could stay in our bedroom if we wanted to take a nap with the do not disturb sign, while they would clean the kitchen you wouldnt even know they were there sometimes! And Stephanie even went grocery shopping a second time for us! By the way the food in the DR is way better tasting and healthier than in the states. My fiance is kind of chef so we cooked a LOT on this vacation and the grill upstairs was great. We grilled every night and afterwards would spend an hour or two in the jacuzzi. The beach was beautiful, the water felt like stepping into a bath. The garden by the pool was amazing and beautiful. We had Donny order us some langustas and my fiance prepared them on the grill. I am telling you they were better than lobsters! We bought like 8 filet mignons at the grocery store and it was less than 20 bucks and the best steak I ever had! We rented an ATV too for the day, and let me tell you, it makes everything so much fun. The villa itself was spectacular and beautiful. If I could afford to, I would retire there and buy that apartment!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Amazing place , beautiful condo , everything we imagine and beyond. Stephanie ( concierge ) was amazing offering suggestions for places to eat and amusing places, she really went way beyond expectations , so I was Franco very friendly and willing to help us all the time, and he really did in several occasions, what a wonderful team including the maid service.

We gather upstairs several times and enjoy the jacuzzi with my wife and granddaughter it was just wonderful .

I definitely recommend this place if you looking to have a relaxing and quite vacation.

We are definitely going back next year.

Overall, a great stay. A few things to note for your trip

  • 5 of 5

Las Terrenes, the people, the beach, and the culture are amazing. This town is an untouched village that commercialism hasn't discovered. The condo was beautiful and kept extremely clean by the housekeeping staff. The chef was amazing, and the cost of his meal was less than when five of us went into town for dinner (and his meal was better). Overall, we will return to this condo and appreciate Stephanie and Emma answering all our questions before and during our trip.

Re: mosquitoes. I was concerned about Zika and the transmission by mosquitoes. There were no mosquito screens in the bathroom windows (I hope that is changed soon). The rest of the windows in the house are also without screens but that is because you have to open them to stay cool most of the day. The air conditioning units are in the 2 bedrooms and the only way to cool down the house is to close all the windows and wait for the air conditioners to cool the house-- this can take a while so plan ahead. Some nights we opted to open all the windows and keep the breeze coming in but that only works during the day, once nighttime hits the bugs will come in and gather around the lights. So, with the mosquito concerns, we either kept the lights completely off and chatted in the dark, or went into our rooms with the air conditioning.

There is coffee and filtered water supplied for the house. The kitchen was fully stocked, the grill had a full gas tank, and the view was incredible. They provided us extra beach towels without a fuss and we valued all the staff very much.

Overall, it was an enjoyable time and we thank everyone for their hospitality.

Villa Ribera Mar is located at Las Terrenas, a small fishing village of 11,000 residents on the Samaná Peninsula in the Dominican Republic.
