El Cortecito Villa 2017!

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic time over 9 days in Punta Cana (El Cortecito area)! I had my wife and three daughters with me, so safety was very important. The Villa Palmera complex had its own security guard stationed on site. This is typical for most condo and resort areas. We felt safe walking to and from the beach, which is a 5-10 minute walk, but did not chance anything after 9 pm.

The interior of the villa is fine, nothing extravagant, but suitable for our needs. The King-sized bed is a definite plus, as was the blow-up air mattress that we used for our third daughter. The exterior is beautiful with large palm trees, a small but warm pool and a few patio chairs. The pool bottom needs to be refinished, but the water was very clean and cared for. Neighbors were loud at times, but nothing that we couldn't deal with. They were just having fun, but on some calm nights the noise was a little much (thank God for A/C!).

The beaches around town were fantastic! We had a car, so we visited six different beaches, some as close as ten minutes and one just an hour away on the south side of the island. Macao on the north side had the best waves - the others were tamer, but all had great sand. Blanca near the airport was interesting, great vibe and beautiful picture opportunities. We definitely recommend getting a car (about $250) to experience the most of the country. We also recommend visiting Altos Chevon, an Itailian style "town" near La Romania. About an hour away, but worth the ride. It costs $25 per person (ouch), but also included access to the Cap Cana resort (beach, marina and restaurants). FYI - there are a few tolls on the way (about $5 total). Don't get lost in La Romania!

Electricity costs were less than expected, even though we ran three air conditioners all night. No need to use them during the day. We used about $50 worth over nine days (deposit was $200), and got back what we didn't use. Kinda fun to track use each day. Water use was also a welcome surprise. The villa offers 5 gallon jug of spring water (first one free), which can be replaced every couple of days or as needed for $2 by returning empty across the street. We didn't use the tap water, and no one was sick the entire time.

The owners, Napolean and Jackie were extremely nice. The on-site managers, Stephanie and Cyntia were very helpful with restaurant recommendations and activity ideas. Payments were easy - simple and straightforward. All in all, a great trip!

Great Condo & Location - Walked to Everything!

  • 5 of 5

My cousin and I stayed at the condo over New Year's and it was the perfect size for us. The condo is nicely furnished and the two bedrooms with en suite bathrooms in both were great for two girls. The pool is a bit small but really we went for the beaches - we spent all our time on the beautiful white sands :) We did prefer the beach closer towards the supermarket. We loved that we could walk to the beach, the supermarket and restaurants for dinner. Napoleon & Jacquelyn went above and beyond to help coordinate our visit - they are a model of what you'd like from a Homeaway host! They helped us with recommendations - Citrus was lovely (especially the sangria) as well as Chez Mon Ami (where we had NYE dinner). We also really enjoyed their recommendation for a bar to have a cocktail - Onno's - where we celebrated Nicola's birthday! Everywhere they recommended was great. We did have to figure out how to get to the mall to use an ATM - there is not one in walking distance. If you are not renting a car then I would definitely recommend having cash on hand as some restaurants and the activities required cash (not credit card). We really enjoyed the day trip out to Saona Island - truly beautiful, like a postcard! My favorite part was the "natural swimming pool" which is a large sand bar where everyone just hangs out. Also I wanted to say that Alejandro (the driver) and Cynthia (the property manager) were both fabulous! They were very friendly, always willing to answer question and they helped us out alot! All in all it was a wonderful experience because Napoleon, Jackie, Alejandro & Cynthia made it so easy and stress-free! Huge thank you to you all!

Wonderful villa that has everything you may need

  • 5 of 5

The villa is wonderful - has been renovated just before we came, so all the furniture and electronics are new. The owner has put a lot of effort to make it look and feel comfortable. The kitchen equipped with all the kitchenware you may ever need, so those who like to cook can do so.

The owner tried very hard to take good care of us through his property manager who was very nice and helpful. We would definitely recommend this property and the owner to anyone who are interested in vacationing in Dominican Republic. In terms of comfort, privacy and value, staying in this villa cannot be compared with staying at any hotel.

The only negative points have to do with the town and the country itself - namely, pretty primitive infrastructure, to speak of. If you are traveling with infants and elderly persons, as we did, you need to be prepared to use taxi to go to and from the beach or anywhere else - $10 each way, if not far, and of course much more if you go to the airport or to see places. So for the active adults, with or without kids - who don't mind to walk 5-10 min in hot weather to the beach or to a restaurant, this is really a wonderful place to stay. We did not try to rent a car. Probably it would have made it much easier to manage the old lady and the infant, but we were not sure about renting a vehicle in an unfamiliar place.
