Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Punta Balandra

Apartment, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleep 4

Xëliter Vista Mare is a modern place where style and service converge in such a way that it will forever revolutionize the way you take a vacation. The resort is located in Los Naranjos at the peninsula of Samaná, a new and emerging destination in the Dominican Republic. It is conveniently located just 55 minutes away from the new El Catey International Airport (AZS).

Samaná is considered one of the most beautiful areas of the Dominican Republic, yet it remains one of the least known by Dominican natives in general and foreign visitors in particular. Samaná's beauty lies in its simplicity. It is an extraordinary place rich in history, traditions, gorgeous beaches, and natural marvels.

At Xëliter Vista Mare you will enjoy luxurious accommodations in finely-decorated one, two, three and four bedroom apartments overlooking the bay and Cayo Levantado. They feature spacious bedrooms, private terraces along with a variety of amenities, impeccable service and personalized attention from our staff to assure you have plenty of time to relax! Step outside and enjoy two swimming pools and our secluded and private beach area.

Paradise. Retreat. Peace. Relaxation. Whatever word you choose to refer to it, we are sure that the extraordinary accommodations, activities and unparalleled natural beauty will seriously make you consider missing your flight.

Humpback Whales Watching

More than 50,000 people visit Samaná each year to watch the humpback whales during their mating season between January 15 and March 15. These mammals come during the winter from the North Atlantic in order to enjoy our warm waters and give birth. There have been times when up to 300 whales have been counted in the area.

Los Haitises National Park

This is an experience of pristine mangroves, virgin wildlife, and archeological wonders. It lies in the northeast of the country, in the southwest angle of the bay of Samaná, near the delta of the river Yuna. The area covers 826 km and was originally settled in pre-columbian times by the Tainos, the natives of the island. Los Haitises takes you on a tour to the past, nature as seen by the conquistadores. Taino caves, subtropical forests, and mangrove swamps blend to make this the perfect Caribbean adventure.

Cayo Levantado

This small island is located in the very center of Samaná Bay. It has a beautiful beach, a small exclusive hotel and various facilities for visitors, especially those that arrive from cruise ships to Samaná.

Rincón Beach

This 1.2 mile beach-bay is is still undeveloped and can be reached from the road that goes from Samaná to Las Galeras. It has the peculiarity of being several beaches in one. One side of the beach has incredibly docile and calm waters, while the other side has intense waves that are perfect for bodysurfing. Although it is relatively untouched, it is still considered one of the best beaches in the world.

Las Galeras

This is a quiet beach in the most north eastern point of the country. The highlight of this beautiful beach is the recreational diving aquarium built by the Japanese man, Kaio. Close-by are Madama beach and Frontón beach, which are both great for climbing.

The 'El Limon' Waterfall

A great adventure that you will never forget, this trip takes you to the interior of the peninsula where the mountains reach a height of 2,100 feet. You will get to go on horseback for 30 minutes along very steep paths with incredible tropical vegetation, wildlife, coffee and cocoa plants and a great variety of tropical fruits. When you arrive at the 120 foot high waterfall, you will be captivated by its spectacular beauty that makes the whole trip worth it.

Vista Mare

  • 4 of 5

Hello Tomas......Vista Mare is in a stunning location......my 2 adult daughters and I had a wonderful restful week. Your unit was beautiful.....however, there were a few inconveniences......no hot water in master bath shower the entire week......very little water pressure in shower in 2nd bath....could not get dishwasher to work....a microwave would have been appreciated....on the plus side.....the outdoor furniture was so comfortable and well used by us all.....the open layout and the floor to ceiling windows were just beautiful, beds very comfy,washer/dryer very convenient .......not really sure why the service is soooooo sloooww in the restaurant, especially when you are the only patrons present (we were literally in the restaurant for 2.5 hrs one morning for breakfast)......but if that issue could be improved, the venue would be perfect thanks!!

Wonderful Views of Ocean -- No Outdoor Furniture to Enjoy It!!

  • 3 of 5

LIKES: The views were incredible from the unit, club house, pool, restaurant. The unit was a nice size, with floor to ceiling windows so you can enjoy the view. The restaurant food was very good -- the service a bit slow. They do offer a meal plan or you can just choose off the menu for a varied fee per dish. The 2 pools were great--we could even see whales in front of the property. The 2 private beaches on the property were amazing.

DISLIKES: Biggest complaint about this particular unit -- THERE IS NO OUTDOOR FURNITURE to sit on and enjoy the scenery!!! The indoor living room furniture is extremely uncomfortable and of a very low quality. There was no microwave in the unit. Also, the unit has this great Jacuzzi tub on the deck -- but we were unable to use it for it had no water in it. The mini market on property should just close for what they have to sell -- basically nothing!!!

When renting in this area be sure to stock up at a grocery store (super Mercado) before you get there for there is no where to purchase items that are needed -- for example we needed laundry detergent could not find any.

The complex of Vista Mare is so hilly that it is recommended you drive from your condo up to the club house area -- there was no way that my mother over 60 was able to walk up the hill. Also it is very dangerous to walk up for you are walking on the road -- there is no suitable staircase or walking path when staying in the buildings closest to the sea (where this unit is located).

To wrap it up -- I would stay at the property again (not this unit unless they made some changes/additions). I would make sure we were better prepared with items that you need for a condo rental unit.
