Bei der Buchung hat alles reibungslos geklappt und im Hotel wurden wir von der liebenswerten Anabel Santana betreut, welche immer für uns da war, wenn wir etwas brauchten oder Fragen hatten. Das Apartment ist direkt am Strand und bietet dadurch einen fantastischen Ausblick. Die Küche ist ein bisschen klein, aber man kann den Kochherd "herumtragen". Wir haben den handlichen Kochherd einfach jeweils auf die Terrasse gestellt zum Kochen und auch immer draussen gegessen. Das gab ein gewisses Campingfeeling und hat Spass gemacht. Wir hatten kein all-inclusive, aber durften die ganze Hotelanlagen nutzen. Das Apartment wird 1x pro Woche gratis geputzt. Wenn man es öfter möchte, kostet es 5$ pro Reinigung. Die Lage in Playa Dorada bietet zudem grosse Sicherheit, da die Anlage stets bewacht wird. Ausserdem kommt man von der Hauptstrasse her schnell, direkt und günstig mit dem "Guagua" nach Sosua (50 Peso p.P.) und Puerto Plata (20 Peso p.P.). Uns hats gefallen.
Listing is exactly accurate. Gerald greeted us electronically and made sure we met up with Anabel, the hospitality lady at the resort. She was terrific, making sure all was well.
The accommodations are just as pictured- a great ocean view from the room, and beach that is raked and cleaned daily, and a pool area that is very nice. We did not purchase the resort's food/drink package, so I cannot comment on that, but our stay was very nice- we would do it again in a heartbeat!
MUY CONTENTOS CON LA ATENCION DEL ANFITRION , PERSONA MUY CORRECTA Y AGRADABLE EN SU TRATO , ESTUVO MUY PENDIENTE POR INTERMEDIO DE LA ADMINISTRADORA DESDE NUESTRA LLEGADA HASTA NUESTRA PARTIDA, EL ULTIMO DIA SE ACERCO A LA PLAYA A CONOCERNOS Y HACERNOS DEVOLUCION DE DINERO PORQUE HABIAMOS PAGO UN DIA DE MAS, ESO HAY QUE VALORARLO Y MUCHO , SE HIZO NOTAR LA PARTE HUMANA Y NO SOLO COMERCIAL.
Jerald's studio is right in front of the beach and very convienent to down town Puerto Plata. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Jerald is very hospitable.
This was our first time renting from Airbnb and I must say it was an easy, straight forward process. Thanks to Jerry for keeping in touch with us and allowing us to stay at his beautiful beachfront apartment in Playa Dorada. He is a very professional and delightful person to work with. We stayed in his apartment for 12 days and have absolutely no complaints. The apartment was clean, great AC, warm running water, and a lovely oceanfront view...all we needed for a relaxing vacation.
We didn't spend much time at all in the hotel area, since we spent the majority of our vacation with family, so I can't comment on the actual hotel facility. Overall, by what I observed the hotel grounds were clean, the staff was pleasant, and all the guests looked like they were enjoying themselves.
We look forward to renting from Jerry again on our next visit to Puerto Plata.

Nice apartment and great location, you are staying almost on the beach! The hotel is clean and well maintained, but the staff''s friendliness at the reception only apear when you buy the all inclusive. Be aware what it can be rather difficult to find restaurants/cafes nearby. Most of them are closed because all the hotels in the area have all inclusive. You will have to take a guagua 15 minutes to Puerto Plata instead.
We enjoyed our stay and it was always easy to get in contact with Jerry by e-mail, as he is not staying nearby. We can really recommed this place, especially if you by the all inclusive - it is not the best all inclusive, but it is worth what you pay.
