The beach is never out of sight and located only steps away from the apartment.
Vibrant life in the area, with activities for everyone. Water activities include parasailing, snorkeling, scuba diving, kite flying, fishing, and boating. For the golfer, there are numerous fine golf courses in the area to choose from. Restaurants along the beach are just a short walk away. Also, there is a sports bar, bakery, pharmacy, and several mini-grocery stores are all within walking distance. A short drive away is the Palma Real Village Mall, which boasts cinemas, the Hard Rock Cafe, Tony Roma's, and a host of other stores.

Everything was exactly how the pictures showed it. The room was beautiful, the Stanza Mare condo area was fantastic, and the beach was the best. We walked along the shore for a few hours and really thought the area of beach owned by this location was the best. The shuttle to the airport was $40USD each way, which was a bit more than I thought it was going to be, but it was a long distance, so it wasn't an obscene price. There was a slight miss-communication and walked into our room being cleaned up a few hours before the agreed upon departure time, but it was sorted out (thankfully that I understood Spanish). The deck area is where we spent a large amount of time and it was so peaceful and relaxing, it's really cool to feel like you're in your own little community. The French Bakery nearby was fantastic for breakfast and the little mercado next door had everything we needed for a few days in paradise. Our host, Benjamin, was very friendly and helpful when we needed him.
I'd HIGHLY recommend this place and will look for it again when returning to Punta Cana in the future. Thanks, Stanza Mare, and keep it up!
Emanuele had a co-worker, Benjamin, meet us upon our arrival. Benjamin was very helpful and informative.
Property Manager was great but busy. Apartment and beach not so great. Cable television did not work for 2 days, television in bedroom old tube tv that died, had no water for major portion of 2 days (water problem in another unit), air conditioner in bedroom leaked water (had to put bucket under it to protect furniture), wifi would not work in apartment (balcony so-so; pool pretty well), beach and water filled with seagrass (piles of up to at least 2 feet tall on the beach), harassed by locals walking beach and prostitutes offering massage and sucky, sucky (disgusting).
It was totally as described; short walk to the beach and close to restaurants. The location was perfect. The caretaker was quick to respond to any of our needs and we would definitely comeback.
This was my first time being in the Domincan Republic, and Emanuele helped make it a great one. He is very responsive when in communication. He also gives you the option of having his employee/driver, Benjamin, pick you up. He is very friendly and professional. It's also a bit better than a cab if you because you have the option of stopping somewhere on the way, like the super market.
The place itself was very nice value for what you pay. Nice kitchen with huge water jugs (re-supplied at the front desk i think) that gives you enough water fresh drinking water to last 7-8 days or so. Nice living area and bed room is decent size as well. There are two bathrooms, one right next to the front door, so that was very convenient with two people being there. Only real criticism i guess would be that there is only 1 air conditioning wall unit in the bedroom. During the time there, its was pretty hot/humid. Also, the wifi doesn't really work in the room, you have to go to the pool area/common area for reliable connection, but that didn't matter much since using the internet was not high on my priority list during a vacation.
Location is great. Nice relaxing pool area that is very quite and relaxing. Everything felt very private, as if the whole place was just for you (more action down the beach closer to the all-inclusive resorts. Water is a great temperature and you are steps from the beach area. There are a few nice little places right on the beach there that are very nice and should be explored. However, beyond that there are mostly all inclusive resorts in the area; which somewhat limits where you can go. Beech area is very nice though with an area for you to sit and nice and warm ocean water.
Lastly, as I said, the location is pretty good for that area. Theres a small market very close by, a fruit stand, and couple of bars, and a little restaurant area if you go further. There is also a place on the beach that seems to have a DJ on saturdays and some Sundays.
Thank you Emanuele!
The Stanza Mare is just as pictured! No gimmicks there:) DR is a beautiful place and my husband and I enjoyed our stay!
The Pros: Emmanuelle responds immediately and answered my numberous questions with no problem. Benjamin and Andy were super friendly and even took us to the local supermarket on our way from the airport to the condo. We were able to stock up on the food & snacks needed for our stay. There is a fully equipped kitchen for storage, cooking, or both:) The AC in the room is a God send. Just as other reviewers mentioned, tasty local restaurants and bars are nearby and a beautiful beach steps away.
The Could Have Been Betters: MOSQUITOES!!! I left with over 10 bites (7 on the arm exposed while I slept). I really wish there was a screen on the windows to keep them out like some of the other units. If we shut the windows it was really muggy and uncomfortable. So we chose to open window, saturate with bug spray and we were still bitten through the night. Secondly, Benjamin who is usually on site was on vacation so it was somewhat difficult to coordinate details via wifi- as it was spotty and unreliable. Andy suggested we download Magic Jack app to make call vs emails (it was for sure more helpful).
Overall, for the price our expectations were met and we would return with the hope of more sunshine - thunderstorms and clouds most of our stay:(
Thanks so much for your hospitality!
Overall, we had a very pleasant stay at the Stanza Mare condo. The private beach is in extreme close proximity to the condo, and in less than a minute you can have your toes in white sands. We stayed out on the beach very late and felt safe at all times. The pool on the property, is beautiful at night with underwater lights, and a waterfall. The living room got hot during the day, however the bedroom air conditioner, functions well and kept that area very cool.
Communication with Emanuele and his host Benjamin was excellent. All messages were returned promptly, all calls were answered immediately, and any request I had was resolved beyond my satisfaction. The excellent hosts provided an experience beyond what I could have expected attempting this trip on my own. I look forward to making future reservations with Emanuele in the future.
