Response from Diana And Don:

Yes, it is a scenic, safe 2 hour drive from Santo Dominigo. For those that can connect through JFK on Jetblue to our local airport SAMANA (code SDQ) (only 40 minutes). The same from Toronto and Montreal on Air Canada and Westjet...
Fly out from JFK or Toronto or Montreal in the AM and you are on the beach by early afterrnoon

Response from Diana And Don:

Thank Anna, As she mentions people have the misconception that they have to rent on the beach. Samana Peninsula is reknowned for its beache(s) not just the one down town which is overdevelopped. We have 1/2 dozen beaches within an easy reach going East or West from us.
Yes, Monte Placiod is set in a pastoral setting only 10 minutes from lively Las Terrenas for shopping, dinning, dancing etc...

Thank You Leandro,
Yes, we are happy to offer a welcome meals but it cleary states that with a reservation only. Not all our guests wish to have lunch or dinner ready for them. In any case we can also have pizza delivered at the last minute
We also offer on the 1st day a welcome breakfast. So come and just relax! No need to go rush and go shopping.
Yes, the wifi issues are always annoying when one can't figure out what was wrong. We have many professionals that come on "working" vacations and our wifi system usually works great.
Lighting. the Dom Rep has one expensive enegy cost in the world so we try to conserve energy. FYI we are going solar next year.

Yes, our drive way coming up is steep but safe. On the 1sr run it comes as a surprise but so does the panorama from up here once you made it to the top as Chi mentions.

Yes Brandon, it easy and quick to get to and from town and ot the beaches . The local communal taxis called "guagua" are quite typical and very economical . The other mode of "public " transportation are the motorbike taxis called " motoconcho" they run 24/7
Yes we are in a pastoral setting and our guests greatly appreciate it being away from the hustle bustle of town.

Tu es resté dand notre Villa Gardenia qui est seulement 1 des 6 autres logements avec vue sur mer que nous offorns.
Merci et nous vous attendons pour la prochaine foir

It is a pleasure and it is the least we can do to make sure our guests enjoy their stay. We also rent our own vehicles exclusively for our guests, can provide a cook on demand, massages on site, have local fishermen deliver the catch of the day, we provide beach chairs and towels, lend snorkeling equipment....just in case generator back up, on site staff 24/7
PS we also have 2 and 3 bedroom villas on MONTE PLACIDO
