Great place for a relaxing vacation
We stayed at this villa to celebrate a special occasion and spent 5 days and 4 nights here. I’ll start off by saying that Brian, the owner, was very responsive and helped us with arranging transportation from the airport and answering all our questions prior to arrival. The villa was very clean and well-kept. The gardens and pool were well-maintained. A delicious meal was planned prior to our arrival and waiting for us when we reached the villa. The staff was very nice, friendly, non-interfering, and professional. Language was definitely a problem for us as none of us spoke Spanish and the staff spoke little English. A few of my family members including me are vegetarian and although Tonya was able to substitute and get creative, the food options were limited. We carried some snacks from home and instant meals which turned out to be life-saving especially given our dietary restrictions and having a 3 year old with us!
This is a great place for a relaxing vacation. Since the staff leaves at 3 pm and at 1 pm on Sundays, meals must be planned in advance (that includes deciding the menu a few days in advance and having all groceries available). The location is less than ideal for eating out (only 2 decent restaurants within walking distance) and for those wanting to spend time on a beach. The Cofresi beach is only a 5-10 minute walk, but it is not clean and it is not a sandy beach where you can laze/sit around.
We did a city tour recommended by Gus (a tour agent) who came to greet us the first morning after we got there. It was a private taxi tour, in which we visited the rum factory, chocolate factory, amber museum, and rode the cable car up to mt. Isabele de torres. There are other activities such as ocean park, paradise island, waterfall hike, catamaran tour, etc and each of these are anywhere from $75-$190 per person.
We had a very pleasant stay but things that could’ve improved our experience are 1) air conditioning in the common areas, 2) house phone to make local phone calls to call taxis or order food, 3) a visit by the property manager to give us some much needed info re: eating out and getting around. We bumped into the property manager of the next door villa who arranged a taxi and restaurant reservation for us on one of the evenings. (Unfortunately, it turned out to be a tourist trap and a not so pleasant experience) but that is precisely why a visit from Gabino would have been helpful! Overall, great stay! Don’t forget bug spray!
We appreciate your family visiting our Dominican Home. We are glad you had a great stay and enjoyed Tonya's cooking and cleaning. We have never found language to be a problem communicating with our staff. Tonya understands a lot more English than she can speak and has been actively taking English classes. Google Translate works great if you need it for specific commutations or requests. Both Gabino and Chelo speak perfect English. We have had vegetarians and vegans visit the villa in the past and they expressed no problems planning meals or communicating with Tonya. Make sure Tonya shops for food at the grocery store that meets your specific dietary needs. In addition to the restaurants on the beach road, there are a number of great restaurants within a 5-10 minute taxi ride from the villa. Cofresi Cove Beach is a great place to swim, snorkel or relax on the sandy beach at the east end of the cove. There is a local crew that cleans the beach weekly. Unfortunately we cannot air condition the entire villa, only the bedrooms. There is normally a great ocean breeze that keeps the common areas comfortable. We don't have a house phone but you can use your cell phone and make calls for FREE over the Internet for taxis, food orders, etc. Our Manager, Gabino, was VERY sick during your visit and was not able to make a personal visit but was in contact with Tonya during your stay. You had his cell number and email address if you needed to reach him directly to ask any questions. Tonya can reach Gabino for you also on her cell phone. We currently have a 5 Star Rating on our staffs' performance with 100% outstanding reviews. Best Regards, Brian & Patsi Smith
Great for a Girl Trip
The staff was great, the food was great, the location was great. Enough space for each of us and more. The only thing I would love to see is an air conditioner in the downstairs sitting area. It was nice but sometimes it just got too hot and we all went back toniur room.
Thanks for the Girls vacation at our villa. Unfortunately we cannot air condition the entire villa, only the bedrooms due to the high cost of electricity. Usually there is a ocean breeze to keep the common areas comfortable. Thanks for the 5 Star Rating!! Our staff appreciated your kindness. Regards, Brian & Patsi
Best vacation ever stayed at.
My family wanted to try something diffrent other then resorts and gave a private Villa a try. Boy was this better then we expected, my family was more then overjoyed , not only, with the Villa itself but the staff was amazing. Tanya was the best cook and more then excellent attention. Simply the best and definitely will return.
Thanks for trying a private villa over a crowded resort. Glad your family enjoyed your vacation and exceeded your expectations!!. Tonya is a great asset to our staff!! Look forward to your return. Regards, Brian & Patsi
College roommate reunion
Wonderful and relaxing week with friends. Tonya's cooking was awesome and delicious. The property was clean and private. The only downside was music/noise from the resort on the beach. Would definitely consider visiting again.
Glad you had a wonderful vacation at our villa. Thanks for the 5 Star Rating!! Unfortunately, we cannot control the music from the resort on the beach. Normally things quiet down after sunset. Hopefully you enjoyed the fireworks! We look forward to your return. Regards, Brian & Patsi
Beautiful property and great staff
Everything was amazing but mainly the staff!!!! I wish the beach that is near the house was nicer but it was ok. We enjoyed our week there and would come back!!
My family and I ( a group of 8 with 2 children), spent 7 days, 6 nights at Villa de las Sirenas. The pictures don't do the house justice. It felt like home. The pool and garden were impeccably maintained. The team that manages the property were super helpful, caring, and met all of our needs. The meals were thoughtfully prepared and DELICIOUS!
My family and I are already planning our next trip
