About this listing
BEACHFRONT STUDIO CONDO APT LOCATED DIRECTLY ON THE PARADISE BEACH at the PLAYA DORADA BEACH COMPLEX in the FIRST CLASS, "GRAND PARADISE RESORT". (1 week minimum rate).
BEACHFRONT STUDIO CONDO APT LOCATED ON THE GRAND PARADISE RESORT BEACH, the "BEST BEACH at PUERTO PLATA".
Located between the (POP) airport and the town of Puerto Plata.
The beachfront photos are the actual view from my front terrace.
Fully Furnished with King Size Bed, Full Bath, Kitchenette with hotplates, dishes, pots, pans, utensils, condiments all ready to prepare your meals. A/C, 32" Plasma TV, cable, telephone, safe deposit box, excellent security. Guests may use my WiFi modem at no charge with small deposit.
There are taxis and shuttles from POP to all the resorts or rent a car at the airport or in the Playa Dorada complex or possibly more economically online thru carrentals. Never enter a taxi before knowing the charge to your destination. The taxis that hang out at the resorts are way overpriced.
If you dont have a car and wont pay the taxi union prices you can walk to the entrance and ride the 25 cent buses to town.
When checking-in at the front desk, you can select the meals and drinks option, or not. Its now very expensive and the quality is poor. We can no longer recommend that our guests eat at the hotel restaurant. Best to plan on cooking lite meals in the kitchenette, or walk 5min to the Playa Dorada Plaza, or the pizza vendor on the beach or the beachside French bistro about a 10 min walk on the beach toward town. The saavy local owners eat there because the quality and price is excellent, as compared to the resort food and watered-down drinks. They offer very offer economical breafast, lunch and dinner with camaraderie in a pleasant beach setting.
When we are there we prepare our own meals and dine on the beachfront terrace or eat at the bistro or in town.
Best super market in town is the La Sirena on the Pt Plata oceanside main street. They offer good buffet assortment and free Wi-Fi.
If you need to work online while in the Dom Rep, use my internet modem for your laptop or smart phone.
Ana Santana is my very helpful guest concierge at Grand Paradise sales office near the front desk, where you check-in and get the room key card to my beachfront apt #1414.
