Wonderful stay at jasmine villas with spectacular views! The infinity pool overlooks the ocean and the on site amenities provide a wonderful stay where you are sure to feel in paradise! Shivas cave is a breathtaking space for yoga meditation and even dance amidst the rock formation Inside the cave and the nature that surrounds it. Be sure to bring insect repellent. It's recommendable to rent a car. The closest beach is a 40 minute walk. The staff is wonderful and diana and Don have plenty of experience in all you need to know... they were a great help!

Diana and I want to make sure that our guests are stress free. For our yoga friends, do come and relax in our unique yoga space that we call Shiva's Cave. Up here on the hills guests really get to enjoy the ocean with a 180 panorama and the pristine beaches are just a short ride away. Your hosts Diana and Don

OMG! Amazing place, hosts, pool...THE VIEW OMG...Hahaha. Expect no less than a beautiful attention if you need them, they let you be. I even got a free upgrade. My wife and I loved this place you have everything you need on the houses the only thing you need is food. Try to get it from Supermarket Pola is way better, buy fresh seadfood in the beach behind the cemetery wall. If telling "You will never regret been in Monte Placido" helps you decide,then there is it! I really appreciate everything! See you soon guys! And thanks again!

OMG not quite paradise but we do our best to make sure our guests feel at home that they have their privacy and enjoy their stay up here on MONTE PLACIDO and in Samana. Emanuel mentions the fish market behind the cemetery. The fishermen are there from 10am to 1pm everyday with fresh catch. We have 2 very well supplied supermarkets and numerous vegetable and fruit stands in town. Then and of course a great selection of restaurants in Las Terrenas and beach bars... we will point you to them when you get here...

Monte Placido was incredible. Our apartment (Lilka) was excellent and had everything we needed. The bed was comfortable and the balcony was stunning. Getting around the area without a car was easy as locals on motorbikes were happy to take us wherever we wanted for a reasonable fee. Samana is beautiful and fun, featuring stunning beaches (our favourite was Playa Coson) and fun bars (our favourite was the tiny Mosquito Beach Bar next to the Portes restaurant). One word of caution regarding the Lilka apartment: There is no door between the bathroom and the bedroom. All in all we had a fantastic and relaxing stay at Monte Placido and recommend it to anyone wishing to visit the Samana Peninsula.

Response from Diana And Don:
Thank you Daniel for mentioning to future travelers that getting around is easy, convenient, inexpensive and even fun using local public transportation. You have communal taxis called "guaguas" that cost about US$1.00 for a ride from dawn to dusk and "motoconchos" motorbike taxis that run 24/7.

First of all: We will come back! Lucky us, we could stay at Monte Placido for 3 (!) weeks and it was really a dream. The place on the top of the hill is fantastic, the garden a dream and the infinity pool invites to stay during daytime, if you don't want to go to the beach or somewhere else. Don and Diana are perfect hosts, always looking to support if necessary, to give good restaurant advices or to organize transfers etc. We rented a scooter (Don did for us and made a low price possible) and that was a good thing, because so we were flexible and could go to Las Terrenas or different beaches, without always ordering a taxi or catching a bus. We stayed at apartment ROSA, which is the smallest on Monte Placido. It is perfect for a short stay of some days, but if we return and stay again for a longer while, we will choose one of the bigger apartments with separate sleeping room and more space in the kitchen. Our summary: a very lovely place with really uncomplicated hosts in a beautiful part on the island! Thank you Don and Diana for making our stay a wonderful time to remember!

Yes, we assist our guests with vehicule rentals (car, motorbike, scooter, beach buggy, ATV..) We also have our local rental car agent to pick up our guests at the airports for a nominal fee and much cheaper than any taxi.

This is a gem of a setting, overlooking the ocean and gorgeous hills and valleys of Samana peninsula. Above the noise and chaos of Las Terrenas, and away from the heat and the fumes, Monte Placido was our glorious refuge. We did not miss living on the beach one bit. Everyday we set out on a different adventure in our car, exploring many of the fabulous beaches nearby-drinking fresh coconut milk brought to us by young boys scrambling up the palms to harvest the freshest coconuts possible; occasionally enjoying fresh fish bar-b-que that just "popped up" on the beach- all for a fair and modest fee. Returning to our beautiful and serene digs at Monte Placido was a joy! The yoga platform and meditation cave added immensely to the experience. Even if you don't practice either, it is a wonderful place to read, unwind, enjoy the impromptu rainstorms, to be happy. While in the D.R., we experienced both this and an all-inclusive resort on the beach. They are totally different! Our preference is the Monte Placido style. It is for the adventurer, the spirited and curious-for those that really want an authentic experience- for those who want to buy fruit from the street stalls, fresh catch of the day from the fish monger on the beach, to cook at home sometimes....for those who want to talk and laugh with some of the warmest, most sincere and lovely people on the planet. The Dominican Republic is a magical place and Monte Placido is an awesome place to call "home base". The staff is friendly and kind and take good care of the guests. The owners are most always on the grounds doing their own thing, but available and helpful with suggestions or helping out in an emergency. Take advantage of their meal offer if you are arriving late the first night. I caught a ride into town the 1st morning with Don, who was going grocery shopping, and he gave me wonderful crash course on everything I needed to know...very much appreciated! The accommodations are comfortable with many sizes and styles and prices available. We started out in Rosa/a studio apt which we loved, but moved to 2 bedroom( Falcona) which is over the top gorgeous. The water is warm and plentiful, Wi/Fi reliable, if a bit site-specific. We really hated to leave and can't wait to return...we are so in love with the D.R. and Monte Placido!

How can one resist not coming and staying with us? Please do come and let us welcome you on top of our little piece of paradise. And yes, Hannah is so right, we are so lucky to be all the guests endearing Dominicans that have so nicely welcomed us to their beautiful country. As Hannah mentions you may just see one of our 6 homes on AIRBNB all 6 are listed but scattered on their page. So if you are not sure and want soemthing a litle chaeper or more luxurious/comfortable please inquire. Don and Diana

The place is just magnifique. Already thinking to coming back again for a longer stay. This place is quiet. The views are fabulous the birds singing is outstanding . The pool is a great compliment although we didn't use it it is a great one. Distance to the beach is a mere 5-10 minutes away with a car. Don was very helpful when we arrive as we were lost and sent a bike guy to guide us through and arrive safely. He was always on hand should we needed anything. Aldo was a plus to have a hot meal at arrival . Anyway I cannot say enough of this place it is just one of the kind and s great place to be if you are planning a trip to Las Terrenas area and be in s very quite place and not far to all the other actions that the region has to offer. Highly recommended. Can't wait to come back again.

Response from Diana And Don:
Thank Franco for emphasizing that MONTE PLACIDO is just the right place to be away from the hustle bustle of town that is only minutes away. The same applies to the beache(s)... Future travelers have the misconception that we have just ONE beach. From MONTE PLACIDO and within minutes you have the choice of 1/2 dozen pristine and undeveloped with short driving distance. MONTE PLACIDO is not an hotel with a restaurant but we are happy to prepare welcome meals for our guests that have just spent a long day traveling. Just place your order in advance. Your hosts Diana and Don
