Other Things to Note
Come and enjoy!
ROSA has a small fenced yard and is pet friendly. We do ask that your pet be contained in the yard and not run free on the property.
Monte Placido was exactly as described, yet we were still awestruck by its beauty. It's a truly one-of-a-kind place with breathtaking views, and the plant life alone up there is incredible. It's removed enough that it feels peaceful and relaxing, but only a ten-minute or so drive to beaches, restaurants, etc. (We highly recommend acquiring some sort of vehicle.)
Diana and Don were very helpful, providing us with everything from advice on restaurants and excursions to hooking us up with free snorkel gear and paddle boards. They even put us in contact with nice and reliable drivers to and from buses and airports. We could not have been happier with our decision to stay at Monte Placido.
Thanks for your review and comments. Will follow up your suggestions to make things even better up here on our little mountain top.
For all we do provide snorkling gear and alos as guests of Monte Placido you are also members of the Las Terrenas Sailing and Beach Club

This is a beautiful spot accurately represented by the photos. Don and Diana came by regularly to check on us and provided very useful information when we asked for it. They are lovely hosts and are there when you need them and otherwise leave you to explore and enjoy.
Monte Placido is a very special place. The views and grounds are quite spectacular. It was very quite and peaceful. Perfect place to relax and recharge. Don and Diana were great hosts. Very helpful with suggestions and made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The yoga cave and its views were breathtaking. We would definitely go back. Can't say enough good things about this amazing place and hosts.
Thank you Debra. we have been on site 13 years and we have been constantly making improvements on the homes and the landscape to make Monte Placido feel the most enjoyable for our guests. We live on site and we are always available to share our insight on beautiful Samana Peninsula
Diana est disponible en tout temps afin de rendre votre séjour agréable. Même le transport en ville pour le yoga! elle est généreuse dans ces recommandations. Visite de la vaste propriété construit avec goût pour sa propre famille d'abord et puis transformer en lieu touristique. La vue est spectaculaire et les lieux sécuritaire. La Rosa est bien équipée mais les lits très inconfortables. Ce fut un des points malheureusement pour lesquels nous avons changés d'endroit malgré que Diana a fait des efforts pour changer de matelas.
Merci Monique nous avons pris bonne note
Mais c'est etonnant car nous acceuillons plus de 30 visiteusr dans cette villa par an dans ROSA et c ést la premiere fois que nous avons eu un commentaire negatif sur la literie.
Nous avons verifie avec les clients suivant pour savoir si ils avaient ete incommodés. Ils etaient tres satifait de la literie. Les matelats n ónt pas plus dán an et sont de qualites superieurs (la marque Simmons des USA)
We could not have been happier with our choice to stay at Monte Placuido during our trip to the Samana peninsula. Don and Diana are a lovely couple who make you feel at home from the moment you arrive. Leading up to our trip, we had several questions. Communication was timely and thorough. When we arrived, it was raining and dark. Don made sure to have his security guard there waiting for us when we pulled up, then helped us park our car safely and drove us up the hill himself to make sure we were safe.
We stayed in the studio, Rosa, which was the perfect size for us. It was so nice to have a safe place that felt like home, where we could cook, read, and just hang out together at the end of the day. The views from the property are spectacular, the staff is welcoming and friendly, the pool is amazing, and the advice from Don and Diana is invaluable. We were able to find the best local guides, beaches, restaurants, snorkeling spots, you name it, Don and Diana know where to find it and were more than happy to make phone calls and arrangements on your behalf. The location of the property is perfect. Close to Las Terrenas and El Limon, but just far enough away to feel like a peaceful oasis.
We had a fantastic time at Don and Diana's place, and we cannot recommend it highly enough.
Thank you for your review. It will help future guests. Yes, it is an invaluable advantage that both Diana and I live on site as well as our 24/7 staff. We are all always available to make sure to make our guests feel at home and enjoy their stay.
We have live here 13 years and welcomed many guests and our combined experiences are very helpful to travelers visiting our beautiful area.
Diana and Don
Rosa is a really great space on a wonderful mountain top. The views were noting short of amazing. Don and Dianna did so much to make our stay comfortable. They were understanding and helpful with anything we needed. The pool was fantastic and the whole property was very clean. We would definitely go back if we visited the DR again.
Diana and Don have earned the highest level of hosting status through many years of experience.
Let me back up. First of all, their compound is absolutely incredible and gorgeous. Imagine the beauty captured in the pictures and times that by ten!
Secondly, the facilities are very comfortable and up-to-date relative to other places. You will feel very safe and at ease on top of this little gated mountain palace.
Last but not least, Diana and Don are an all-in-one, all-encompassing hosting machine – they're your concierge, your translator and even your mechanic negotiator. Ok, that last one needs explaining. We got a busted tire on the last day of our trip – totally unrelated to Monte Placido – and Don was there to help us navigate very uncertain waters between the rent-a-car company and the local mechanic. But, the point is this: these two are super hosts and they really go the extra mile to make sure you enjoy the most out of your trip.
Four thumbs up between my girlfriend and me.
