I love the Dominican Republic. Its beautiful and the people and climate are great!!
El townhouse esta ubicado en un bellisimo club de golf. La comunicacion con Nicola fue agradable, la casa no tenia suficientes toallas y a los 2 dias Nicola trajo toallas nuevas. La casa esta en buen estado, pero necesita algunas reparaciones. El inodoro de arriba no funcionaba y el de abajo, habia que cerrar el agua despues de cada uso porque botaba agua en el suelo y el tanque nunca paraba de correr. Tambien recomiendo poner malla (screens) en las ventanas porque hay mucho mosquito y el ventilador de arriba no funciona. Yo no tuve tantas picadas porque el ventilador en mi habitacion si funcionaba.
Recomiendo este townhouse si estos problemas son solucionados.
This one has potential to be a 5-star. However, some things must be fixed first.
Nicola is very friendly and helpful, but he arrived late every single time we met him.
My mother had to wait for over an hour for him in Punta Cana airport.
On our last day, instead of taking it easy we had to rush to check-in because Nicola was half an hour late to pick up the keys.
The house has no internet, beware false advertising. Nicola promised to get one connected promptly but this never happened. I got a cellular connection as an alternative (with my own money), but it turned out to not be good enough for even basic browsing (75% packet loss, dupe packets and timeouts everywhere in Punta Cana area).
The house is in good condition but has some annoying problems:
* The toilets on both floors do not work well: both require removing the lid and fiddling with the mechanism in order to flush one, and to stop the water running from the other one. The shower upstairs is almost clogged.
* Only one of the circles on the stove works.
* The washing machine does not work well either.
There was no toilet paper nor batteries in the AC & TV remotes when we arrived.
Cocotal area is nice and well guarded (literally, there is a guard with a shotgun or a rifle every 200 meters or so). It is really easy to get around by car, and must be daunting without one.
Make sure you read T&Cs carefully and do not be fooled by what anyone tells you (e.g. Nicola wanted to charge me full price for electricity). This applies to anything and anyone in this country.
