Best family vacation we could imagine

  • 5 of 5

Spent 7 wonderful days at Arricefe 54. As other commenters have mentioned, the pictures (unbelievably) do not do this house justice. It is truly spectacular, from the details of each room and bathroom to the super comfortable beds to the stunning chandeliers and of course the wonderful property and views. But the thing that makes this home special is the staff. Leo and Elba went above and beyond to make this vacation for 5 families (10 adults, 9 kids) something to remember for a lifetime.

The Punta Cana resort itself is also quite spectacular with beautiful white sand beaches and very low crowds. There are other restaurant options nearby and two golf carts to transport you around the property. There are multiple gates and security measures: a completely safe locale.

Lastly, Jacqueline and staff were wonderful to work with and made the overall transaction incredibly easy to complete. We were provided with a wonderful concierge (David) who speaks very good English and arranged a number of great excursions.

Will DEFINITELY return to Punta Cana and if at all possible, to Arricefe 54.

Awesome stay - late April 2018

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful piece of property - very spacious, elegantly but simply decorated and furnished. Grounds are spectacular...pool and views are great. Property managers Laura and Michelle are great, fun, and responsive. Resort this house resides in is super clean and safe, and pretty easy to navigate. Lots of good amenities and access to the beach (es) very easy on golf carts. If the descriptions and online information of this property appear to meet your needs, you absolutely will not be disappointed.

If i have to be critical, i'll provide two pieces of info :

1) Onsite staff was very good - could probably have been better utilized if we spoke Spanish (but that's our fault not theirs) as they spoke no English. They were very good but we could not ask them to address specific task very easy. Again, just something to know going in.

2) The golf carts are a little tough to drive. I think the tires are too big, or something is wrong with the steering. Frankly, we drove all over and this just made us crack up laughing but i could see someone thinking they were not up to the standards of the house.

Honestly, that's about the best i could do to come up with some critique and not just provide a "wow this house is nice" response which i usually find useless.

A suggestion - good coordination with Laura and Michelle is critical to this being a good vacation. Often when i see criticism on the VRBO space, people are assuming they are going to a resort. You are not - you are going to a house. If you want potato chips in that house, you need to tell them. If you extra blankets at night, you better tell them. If you want, a clown to come in and entertain your kids, they need to know. If you do, they'll likely be able to get it done for you. But think of it that way - you need to provide them instruction. They will give you guidelines and suggestions and will work their backsides off for you, but you need to approach with a different mindset from going to Sandals.

Again, awesome place and people - had to think hard to provide any negative aspect. Highly recommend!

Beuatiful Property

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous home with fantastic views of La Cana Golf course and the Caribbean beyond, definitely one of the nicest Villas in Arricife. My group of 14 ranging in age from 18-63 all had a fantastic time enjoying the pool, the beach, the home theater, and of course playing golf on the course right behind the Villa. Property Managers Laura and Michel were very helpful and there is tons to do in the area. Highly recommend!

La AltaGracia, Punta Cana

  • 5 of 5

Luxe and effortless, this astounding home was the ultimate destination for SIXTEEN 20-Somethings + 2 Moms. Hats off to Laura and Michelle Kearney - (darling Wife/Husband Property Managers). They contacted me the week prior, we set menus for pre-stocking and they arranged airport+evening transportation. They provided us with daily updates on expenses - so helpful!!! Ricardo (best butler) supervised daily grocery runs (4 cases water + food/bar for 18) was just Part 1 of his day. He mixed fresh lime margaritas, set a never-ending table of Elba’s creative meals - don’t miss her ceviche and chocolate gooey cake! Ricardo and Darling Housekeepers could be found washing piles of dishes, wine glasses, cutlery+++ late into the night. Our days were spent frolicking at the beach club or lounging by the pool. Mornings were kicked-off with huge breakfasts while 8 bedrooms were fluffed, bathrooms cleaned and loads of towels replaced each day. We spent a fun day at Jellyfish Restaurant/Beach Bar. The girls loved a late night at CocoBongo and met other friends at The Hard Rock. Thanks to Jacquilene for answering all pre-stay questions and setting payment dates - very quick responses were reassuring. LaAltaGracia offers luxe accommodations, superior service + an excellent value. We reluctantly said adios, but took home many happy memories - MUCHAS GRACIAS!!!

Beautiful property and a wonderful vacation for this group of 13!

  • 4 of 5

Villa Palma Real Arricefe 54 was the perfect setting for our group of 13 which consisted of 6 moms and 7 sons. We traveled from the states to celebrate spring break and the upcoming graduation for 5 of the boys. Upon arriving we were all so wonderfully surprised at the most incredible and picturesque setting. The home is very luxurious and tastefully decorated. The bedrooms are all large and spacious with very comfortable beds and well appointed bathrooms. Ricardo, Elba and the rest of the staff were attentive and took great care of us. The meals were all wonderful and they did a good job of trying to meet our needs. There was a slight language barrier as not many in our group spoke Spanish but that did not keep us from having a great time.

Laura and Michel, our property managers were very welcoming and friendly, they were absolutely wonderful! They checked on us daily, ran several errands for us and helped us to get the safes working properly in the home. They were always willing to help and assist whenever we needed them.

The boys loved having the golf carts and traveled all over the gated community, it was very convenient to have them. The beach is really close and so are local restaurants and shops. But the pool at the house was by far the most popular with all. It was so nice to spend so much time just hanging around lounging and swimming.

The reason I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5 is the fact that the theatre room and back 2 bedrooms behind the theatre room smelled really bad. There is some type of moisture issue going on at the back end of that part of the house. After contacting Laura and Michel, they tried their best to remedy the situation but it's something that needs direct attention from the owner and builder. It was a real letdown for the people in our group who had to sleep in those back 2 bedrooms. Anyone with asthma, allergies or small children would not be able to stay in those rooms.

Overall, our group had a wonderful time together and enjoyed our stay at Villa Palma Real. Thank you to Jacqueline, Laura, Michel, Ricardo, Elba and the rest of the staff!

Owner's Response: Dear Darrin, Thank you very much for your kind review and we are delighted that you and your family enjoyed the house and the resort. We would be happy to welcome you back whenever you feel like enjoying the sun and the wonderful hospitality on this lovely island. We also thank you for drawing our attention to the issue of humidity in the rear part of the house. Prior to your arrival we have had almost a month of heavy tropical rains in the evenings and given that these 2 rooms are not as exposed to the sun as the other parts of the house, there was indeed moisture in the air which did not have time to dry out. During your stay we have brought some de-humidifiers and although they have solved the problem, it took a few days. We have also called specialists to check all the installations and they have confirmed that it is only humidity which accumulates during heavy rain periods. As mentioned before, we are nevertheless delighted that you have enjoyed your stay and the whole staff was extremely happy to have you as guests in our little piece of paradise. Hope to see you soon back in beautiful Punta Cana.

Perfect celebration of family!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better setting for the celebration of my parent's 50th wedding anniversary. There were 16 of us total and we used every amenity offered in the villa. Our group consisted of a toddler, teenagers, adults, active grandparents, even one pregnant gal! Each family had their own space for down-time along with beautiful gathering spaces that allowed for conversations, eating & drinking, and competitive matches of ping-pong and pool! Everyone enjoyed the movie theater at different times. Elba and Ricardo, along with the two lovely housekeepers managed our group easily. We even had a medical emergency mid-week that luckily was remedied. Ricardo was prepared in an instant to get us the medical attention we needed. The golf carts were a bonus each day and we had just one instance where one was not fully charged to get all of us out. While the staff are only Spanish-speaking, two of us are fluent and were able to communicate - though it made it harder for those who did not speak Spanish. Yet, this did not hamper our stay and was a good reminder of culture and traveling to other countries. My only suggestion for the property would be to have a welcome book including FAQ's. We hope we will have the opportunity to return in the future.
