Well-appointed condo on manicured beach, great price!
The inviting pricing caused me a bit of concern. I worried we would be disappointed. I had no cause for concern because it greatly exceeded expectations. First impressions : Spotless white painted exterior, five towers in the complex, all on the beach , all with views
Check-in was easy and quick, receiving my keys at the front desk. The staff helped us with our bags and told us how to find her apartment.
Exquisite joy to open the door and see the apartment! Beautifully decorated with an up-to-date beach themed motif . The apartment had everything we needed in terms of cooking, cleaning, towels and supplies.
The balcony was wonderfully situated with a great view of the of the beach and the pool, and hada dining table, sofa, chairs and side tables as well as a lovely lamp and ceiling fan. We were on the 4th floor.
Everything worked well, air-conditioning, hot water and had an easy to use garbage chute near the elevator just two doors away. The condo is accessed by outdoor corridors.
The landscaping was as lovely as Disney World or better! Coconut palms and tropical plantings everywhere, nothing out of place. The staff were all as gracious and sweet as can be. They were bilingual English Spanish maybe more languages!
The beach was well manicured, no debris, it had a wave breaker and safe area. Sometimes there were no guests on the beach at all. Just groundskeepers and guards. I understand there’s only a few high rent seasons in the year.
Coco restaurant on the beach. Food was excellent. The red snapper! And great paella. They do not stay open late at night however.
Garbage receptacles every 50 feet insured there was no trash to be seen anywhere. Various signs indicated that topless sunbathing is not allowed nor Loud music.
They stated it was a family beach..
Outdoor furniture was ample, and included covered lounging casitas, some some with sheer white curtains and windshields.
Well, our Experience was so wonderful I actually engaged a real estate agent to look at some of the units that were for sale. But then I thought, why would I need to own one when renting one is so affordable and easy? We will be back.
And Vivian and Sebastian were delightful to work with, we never met them, we didn’t have to, but to answer the questions online or by phone so easily. Very pleasant experience.
Thank you Janice for your wonderful review! So happy you enjoyed your stay.
We loved our stay at Villas Del Mar. The condo was clean and had all the equipment needed for a beach vacation. The balcony was amazing - great view, comfy furniture and good privacy. The filtered water dispenser in the fridge was a huge bonus, as we anticipated buying tons of bottled water. We were extremely happy we didn’t need to do this. The grounds were well-kept and had a variety of activities. Our young kids loved bouncing from pool, to playground, to ocean. The owners were super-responsive to any questions we had and dealt with the issues we encountered very quickly and effectively. The only real challenge we had was with sugar ants if we left anything sweet in the sink, but I feel this is fairly standard with island locations and they disappeared very quickly after things were cleaned up. I recommend this place if you looking for a much quieter, more laid back beach vacation.
Thanks Karly! We hope to have you back !
Relax in Paradise !
This complex of 5 buildings is located directly on the beach and every condo is facing the sea. It is shaped in a semi circle giving the feeling of privacy and seclusion. The staff is constantly keeping the grounds clean and neat and are all very professional. Wherever you are, whether it is in your living room, balcony, pool, restaurant or beach bed, the constant sound of the waves never gets old. The view keeps taking your breath away. You are in a constant state of Zen. The sunsets are surreal! The apartment is nice and comfortable. You can cook in or eat out, there are a couple of surprisingly nice restaurants across and down the street. There is also a small supermarket there to buy the basics daily including fresh baguette. From booking to check out, Vivian was super helpful and very professional. Replied to us within hours of any inquiry we had and was extremely accommodating. She arranged for a taxi for us from the airport and the driver waited for us and whisked us off. We paid less for this planned taxi than we would have had we taken a taxi at the airport (45us) We took his card and called him to pick us up on the way back as well. Check in and out was simple as well. The beach area was beautiful with ample chairs and beds,and lots of palm trees. The actual water was a little murky probably because the constant waves move the sea weed and sand around and it doesn't settle. Also the waves create a line of rocks and broken sea shells at the entry so that it is a little rough getting in, but once past that, the sand is soft at your feet and the water is warm. This vacation allowed us complete relaxation and all the comforts we needed. We very much recommend renting with Vivian, can't imagine anyone would not be completely satisfied.
We had a great time at Vivian's place. The view is amazing and the apartment is very nice. Vivian was easy to communicate with and she was able to get us a maid (for an additional cost) who cleaned, cooked and did our laundry for us.
Thank you Naomi!
A great stay that exceeded our expectations!
We had a wonderful month at the Marbella condo. The view from the balcony is amazing! We watched each postcard like sunset with amazement. The beach was quiet and relaxing. The owners were very responsive when we experienced any issues and helped us with the arrangements for taxis to pick up our guests at the airport. The nearby restaraunts were outstanding. We definitely plan on going back! Thanks!
Thank you Vicki and Mike. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay!
On the Beach, What's Not to Like?
The apartment is very, very nice and it was immaculate when we arrived. The thing I like best is the sound of the waves on the beach, which you can hear even in the master bedroom.
There is a beautiful view from the balcony (4th floor apartment at the east end of the five-tower complex). There are two large swimming pools with special shallow areas for children. And you are right on the beach. I have been to Juan Dolio before and this is probably the best place in Juan Dolio. Sometimes, places on the southern coast are crowded on the weekends with families from Santo Domingo, etc, but this was not the case in July of this year.
There was a bit of a mix up on arrival, but that was cleared up quickly and the apartment owners were very gracious (and responsive) in dealing with us and the minor confusion (it was actually determined to be an error on the part of reception staff).
Marbella is centrally located in Juan Dolio, but it is a small beach town. Don’t expect a huge range of restaurants and services. (Restaurant tip: Playa de los Pescadores, down the road in Guayacanes, a bit difficult to find perhaps.)
All in all, a great experience and we would return.
Thank you Gregory! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay!
