Respect to the own and other's goods.
Wonderful attractive apartment in Bavaro. I would definitely stay here again. Close to everything. Took awhile to find.Arrived a bit hungry & the fridge was stocked with a few items. Well stocked kitchen. Excellent king size bed. Nice view from the balcony, but a little buggy. Easy walk to the beach, but no chairs available for El Manglar. The pool was inoperable when arrived, but was fine within 36 hrs. Marc was attentive to my needs....had a car......a necessity.
The description of the apartment was completely accurate. It is a lovely one bed apartment with sofa beds in the living room that could accommodate further two people, and it had two bathrooms and air-con. The balcony is at the back and overlooks well maintained gardens and a pond. The location has it's good and bad points. Good: you are 5min walk from an amazing beach, it is quite, tranquil, ducks and birds in the garden, no party noises. The bad thing is it is about 20 min walk from the Bavaro plaza where the shops and cafes are, and in the heat of the day 20 min feels a lot longer. However this should not be the end of it all as you can get a motor taxi, for 5 us dollars, or if you have basic Spanish, order the groceries on the phone and they will deliver. Fei the host met me at the airport and took me to the shop the day I arrived and also sorted out the internet which worked fast and well. The apartment has plenty of storage, a TV with lots of channels, hot water all the time, well stocked kitchen for cooking. The swimming pool area was barely used by anybody including me as the beach was close by, but it is there for the kids if needed.
So if you plan on renting a car, this is the perfect apartment. If not, this is still a good place, just factor in a bit of cash for the taxi for shopping if you don't speak Spanish. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and plan on coming back for a longer holiday, as for me, the location and tranquility of this apartment was what I wanted.
We had a great time. Communication with Marc was easy and consistent. Fei was extremely helpful and nice showing us around and helping with things we needed.
We had a problem with the wifi not working during our stay.
We had a wonderful stay! The Apartment is very close too the beach, it's a 3 min walk. The supermarket is a little far away, but you can take the Motortaxi or taxi.
The beach and sea are amazing and we really enjoyed the stay.
If you want action or night life, there is not very much around. The closes bars can you reach by Motortaxi as well or it is 15 min walk.
We didn't go in a bar or disco.
There is no beach bar or restaurant at the beach, but if you need something like water or sweet / salty things you can buy it at the hotel mini markets.
Unfortunately there is no fresh fruit shop around the apartment.
The Hosts in the Dominican are Fei and Arcadi. Both are wonderful persons with a big heart! They picked us up from the airport and they took very good care of us! They are the best!
What would be a big help, would be a little map for us, the tourist.
That shows the supermarkets and the way to the beach or which bar/disco/ restaurants are good and what are the rates for the taxi and motortaxi.
Have a good trip!
We stayed here for 5 days in February 2014. Overall, it was a good experience, though a touch frustrating because a few things didn't work. The apartment is very close to the beach (4-5 minute walk: take a right out the front door and walk past the Princess resort. Even though it says "private" as you pass the Arena Gorda condos, you can keep walking!). It was nice to be close to a beach front that was not monitored by officials from a big resort who kick you out for using their chairs. If you take a left on the beach and walk about 5-10 minutes; you will find a series of little shops and a bar (nice to know if you want a beer and aren't in a resort). We were also close to the Supermercado Iberia: short taxi ride or 3 mile walk, which we did there and taxi'ed on the way home.
The apartment itself was comfortable and nicely decorated; the patio out back is lovely! We arrived to some bottled water, fruit and some food in the fridge. A few things didn't work - toaster, cable tv, and, for part of one day, the wireless. A text to Marc addressed the wireless, but the cable couldn't be fixed during our stay. Wireless was nice and fast when it worked! There is no house phone, so make other communication arrangements or get an international plan. We hopped into the condo pool once, and found it clean and warm (though given the beauty of the beach, we found we didn't use the pool more than that). The area around the condo is quiet - nothing in terms of restaurants or stores nearby, so keep that in mind. If you are looking for a lively time, not your place; but we found it nice and quiet and restful. Another thing we didn't realize before going: the all-inclusives are monitored at the front gate, so you cannot walk up and pay to use their bars or restaurants. A few small enhancements would make this place ideal: there were some dirty dishes in the cupboards. We could'n't find a street number or name for the development, so it was hard to communicate where we were to taxi drivers. Finally, a few more advance details provided to guest about where groceries/restaurants are, how to get to the beach, would be very helpful!
We had a wonderful stay at Marc's apartment. Fey was helpful and made the stay easy. The only negatives were that the water went out twice and the wifi didn't work. Fey helped with the wifi but really you just shouldn't plan to have it until things get straightened out with the company. Quiet, clean, well equipped. We had a great time and I wish I was still there.
the flat is very beautifull. It was better that we expect: luxurious , modern and beautifull decoration. More than that it s very quiet and peacefull, for relaxing qnd enjoying is perfect. the surounding are very nice too. it s very close to a beautifull beach. You can go shopping with taxi moto, it s not expensive. It s was perfect! Frey is very nice and helpfull. I strongly recommand this adress!
