Villa Punta Coral Guest Book


Chad and Chris Adams

After 6 months of planning we made the trip to this amazing Villa in Sept 2017. We were transported to the Villa from SDQ by Hans the property manager (who was incredibly helpful both before and during the trip..thank you Hans!). We were scheduled to stay for 15 days but our trip was cut short by Hurricane Irma after only 6 days. We were promptly given a refund for our unused portion of our car rental and given a rain check (that we will definately use) for the remainder of our stay. I thought that was more than fair. On the Villa..all I can say is wow! What an amazingly beautiful home and location. The home was VERY clean and comfortable and the pool was amazing. The care takers were very friendly. They do not speak english so it will help if you speak a little spanish but not necessary. One tip, do your shopping for your stay in Santo Domingo as there is very limited shopping in the area of the Villa. Do yourself a favor and stay in this paradise, you won't regret it. I don't and cannot wait to return!

Wir hatten in der Villa Punta Coral einen Traumurlaub hingelegt. Das Haus ist für dominikanische Verhältnisse sehr luxeriös und riesig. Aussicht bzw Lage ein Traum. Garten und Pool sehr gepflegt. Hans der Gastgeber perfekt, der er unaufdringlich ist, aber jederzeit (per whatsapp) mit Rat und Tat für uns da war. Jederzeit wieder- am liebsten gleich morgen erneut buchen.
Wer Ruhe will soll dorthin. Keine Touristen weit und breit,- du bist dort im Paradies. Dorf für den täglichen Einkauf mit dem Auto in 10 min erreichbar (Las Galeras). Dort gibt es auch eine französische Bäckerei- täglich frisches Brot und Süsses. Was es nicht unbedingt in dem Dorf gibt, ist Fleisch. In einer guten Stunde entfernt liegt aber das Städtchen Las Terrenas, wo es zwei sehr gut geführte grosse Supermärkte gibt.
In der Villa stellt Hans, der Gastgeber Kühlboxen zu Verfügung. Gelsen und oder Mosquitos gibt es dort tatsächlich keine. I love, I love. I love, I love.......!!!!!!!!

We are just finishing up our stay here at Villa Punta Coral and could not wait to write a review about this lovely amazing property. After arriving late we were greeted by Sandra and Rhadames. What amazing caretakers. They took care of our every need and greeted us each day with smiles. Rhadames grilled us lobster one night and I swear it melted in my mouth. Sandra was wonderful and makes everything so fresh and clean. She did our laundry a few times and we were thrilled with how fresh it smelled. The house is huge and has a breeze that flows right thru so it was never really hot. The pictures do not do enough justice to the beauty of the villa. The pool was perfect size and was great for late night dips. We had a tropical depression come thru and got the most amazing videos of the waves crashing up on the rocks. This place is perfect and so close to our favorite little town of Las Galeras. Hans was awesome. He was there for any questions or translations we needed which made our stay even more relaxing!!!! Thanks Hans, Rhadames, Rhadimil and Sandra. Also a big thanks to Keba, this beautiful dog made us feel perfectly safe and amused us with her antics. Best vacation ever!

The house is wonderful - large, airy, beautifully decorated, privately located - with waves crashing close by. The caretakers are friendly and accommodating. With a car, Las Galeras is 10 minutes away with everything you could need without being too touristy. It helps to speak Spanish or French, but isn't necessary. Cindy, the host, stopped by to welcome and acclimate us to the area and is easily accessible for questions. You can easily spend your days at the house, relaxing by the pool, or exploring the Samana shore and countryside. I would not hesitate to recommend this house, or come back ourselves - it was an absolutely lovely week we spent there.

This trip was my first time to the DR, so I wasn't sure what to expect when I arrived. As we pulled in the simple 2 track road entering the villa our excitement starting growing. Beautiful palm trees aligned both sides of the road, and then we saw the gorgeous thatched roof of this beautiful home, a well kept lawn and the smiling faces of Hans, Sandra and Radhames. The home was absolutely gorgeous, very open and extremely well kept. The view from the back porch is something from a magazine. Just gorgeous blue water colliding with rugged black rock. (The sunrises will take your breathe away.) It was just far enough away from town that it was your own private getaway, but it was a simple 5 minute drive to Las Galeras. But, the kicker and what will have me coming back time and time again is the wonderful family that maintain the home. Radhames, his wife Sandra and their son were so welcoming. Radhames was open to barbecue, point us in the right direction of the beaches we wanted to see, or just stop by and visit with a fine cigar. Sandra was a wonderful cook and always kept the house extremely clean. And their son was such a joy to hear laughing as he ran around playing with their family dog, Keba. They were all so welcoming and accommodating that within the first couple nights we all just became good friends. They were never pushy, but the type of folks you just wanted to be around. So, to sum it all up. The house is perfect. Gorgeous views, gorgeous weather, and wonderful, wonderful people.

Cindy hat uns bei dem örtlichen Colmado abgeholt und zu der Villa gebracht. Die Villa ist einfach wunderschön. Die Einrichtung ist liebevoll und gut gepflegt, Sandra leistet hier hervorragende Arbeit. Es gibt viele liebevolle Details, die zeigen, dass auch die Besitzer hier öfter sind. Alles ist super gepflegt und gut eingerichtet. Wer einen besonders schönen Ort sucht, ist hier richtig. Lediglich von der Umgebung her hatte aus unserer Sicht Las Terrenas ein Bisschen mehr zu bieten, aber dieser Eindruck ist rein subjektiv. Das Haus ist in jedem Fall wärmstens zu empfehlen und genügt sicher den höchsten Ansprüchen.

Wow. We have just returned home to the UK after staying at VIlla Punta Coral for ten days with our three teenage children. I cannot say enough about this beautiful property and surrounding land. We literally have found paradise. So, the booking? We booked through HolidayLettings but you can go directly to their website and book. Hans, the manager got back to us very quickly with our booking confirmation and gave us lots of useful info about nearby supermarkets and excursions. He was fantastic and we can't thank him enough. There are onsite caretakers who were very lovely and kind and cleaned the house and looked after us very well too. The villa itself is stunningly beautiful. It takes your breath away when you see it. There's a terrace with a big dining table. We had lunch outside many times looking for whales in the ocean as we ate and chatted. The swimming pool is a lovely size and very cooling on the wonderfully hot days we enjoyed in The Dominican. There is a private beach which is quite stunning too. The waves crash against the coral rock and you almost have to pinch yourself to believe your surroundings. Inside the house it is very comfortable. It's also very clean too. We always stay in villas and cleanliness is one of the first things I look for. It is spotless. The bedrooms are very comfortable and it was like home from home to us. It was our first visit to the Caribbean and my husband has a policy of never going to the same place twice so that we can travel the world and see and experience different things. This time we have arrived home and discussed moving here to live. WE LOVED IT THAT MUCH! The wifi was the best we have ever had on holiday. It was perfect in fact. That impressed us very much, particularly the kids who seem to rely on it ever more.

The area itself it stunning. Las Galeras beach is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen and it's a short drive from the villa. There is a lovely little cocktail bar on the beach where we drank pina coladas from pineapples and rum from a coconut! Heaven!! We visited Playa Rincon which was a favourite with my husband and kids. The sea is warm and turquoise blue. La Playita is beautiful too. There are plenty of lovely restaurants in the area but one in particular that stood out to us was La Marseillaise. We dined there twice a day many times and their Nutella crepe are to die for! To conclude, this was literally the best holiday we have ever had. The villa, the management/ onsite caretakers and the surrounding area made it the most perfect holiday and we are still talking about leaving the uk and living here. Driving down the street and hearing Caribbean music and seeing people living simple lives was very appealing to us. My kids have iPads/pods/ phones.. You don't need that stuff here. It is a country of outstanding natural beauty. It makes me think that half of the world is doing it all wrong.... I have arrived home and all I see is concrete. We WILL return to this villa and thank you once again Hans.

Es fühlte sich an wie ein erstbezug, so war das Haus/der Park her gerichtet. Der erste Morgen/das erste Frühstück auf der Terrasse und der Urlaub beginnt mit 100% Genuss. wir sind 50 Jahre alt und haben schon viele Häuser gesehen, dieses ist das absolut Beste bisher... Der Service durch den sehr netten Hans auch absolut perfekt, er hält sich dezent zurück, ist aber in 15 Minuten vor Ort wenn es 'Fragen" gibt. Man vermisst hier wirklich nichts, denn ist es an ALLES gedacht. Der Hauswirtschaftsraum birgt genau das, was für einen Urlaub hier notwendig ist wie z.B. 5 verschieden große Kühltaschen/kästen, genug Dosen um angebrochene Lebensmittel zu lagern. Und der wirklich täglich Service durch Sandra bringt jeden Tag das Erstbezugsgefühl zurück (drinnen und draußen). Schlafen mit Blick auf das Meer, super Klima durch leichte Brisen, kaum Insekten! Die Landschaft drum herum lädt zu vielen Ausflügen ein und die Landsleute sind sehr freundlich. Übrigens hatten wir absolut kein Bedarf an Security. Die Wahnsinns-Strände waren meist leer und das Meer ist ....ohne Worte..... Wir kommen bestimmt wieder, dann vielleicht zu viert, denn das Haus ist so super aufgeteilt und großzügig, dass es auch für vier Erwachsene +2 Halbwüchsige groß genug ist. Für uns ein TRAUMURLAUB - 7 Sterne von 5.

We stayed at Villa Punta Coral for about 14 days and we loved it !! The beautiful house, colonial décor with an outside patio, the refreshing pool , the view of the blue ocean and the coconut palms made everything very heavenly. Every morning we woke up with the sound of the waves and the wind rustling through the trees. From the terrace house we were able to spot whales at regular basis. The care takers were very lovely, attentive and helpful. they took care of everything and they made us feel like home and we felt very secure. Close by you can visit amazing beaches such as : El Rincòn and La Playita. The water there has a nice temperature to swim. In the restaurants nearby you can eat delicious, you have fresh fish and the fruit is very juicy and tasty. Visiting Villa Punta Coral is better than staying in a hotel and is definitely recommended. If we have the opportunity we would certainly go back.

My boyfriend and I enjoyed our 9 night stay here at the villa in July SO MUCH. Everything about the stay was perfect. The house was even better than expected from the pictures and it included every thing you could possibly need to enjoy your stay here, we were pleasantly surprised to find a big cooler that we used daily to take our lunch and drinks to the beach. The kitchen was well stocked with appliances and cooking utensils as well. Our favorite meal was cooking breakfast in the morning and then enjoying it outside on the wonderful patio that overlooked the ocean. The house also had a good wireless connection that came in handy so that we could get tips on what to do from Hans, the house manager. He was very helpful in answering all of our questions and getting us whatever we might have needed in a very timely manner. Our first night we had trouble finding the house (we had no GPS) and we were able to contact him at 11 p.m. and he came and met us in town and we followed him to the house. The town of Las Galeras is a very cute town and not very far away from the house either. Once you learn the lay of the land, its not that hard to navigate around, and we had a car that enabled us to easily get where we needed to go. Our favorite beach that we discovered was Playa Rincon and we went there almost daily. On the way we would hit up our favorite fruit stand to buy fresh mangoes, passion fruit, pineapples and most importantly-the BEST pina coladas ever. 2 things I recommend doing are going to the water fall Salto Limon and having dinner at El Cabito in Las Galeras. El Cabito is a very secluded restaurant that is built on a cliff and it overlooks the ocean and has the most breathtaking views.The most important thing about the villa is that it has 24 hour on site security by a very friendly family that lives on location, not once did I feel unsafe during our stay. Everything about it is perfect and we will definitely be back in the future! Thanks so much Hans :)

La experiencia fue excelente. Cindy siempre estuvo ayudandonos con la ubicación y fue muy simpática en nuestra llegada. La casa tiene una deocración muy autentica y acojedora, que nos deja, digamos, viajando totalmente en la República Dominicana. Cuando llegamos, estábamos un poco preocupados por la falta del aire, pero con las puertas abiertas se puede dormir tranquilamente. Los equipos de la cocina estaban en perfecto estado, la casa limpia, el cesped muy bien aparado y la pileta era un espectáculo a parte para el calor de las noches, al lado de la parrilla arreglada por el casero. La ubicación es muy buena, pues está cerca de varias playas, lo que te da la oportunidad de descubrir nuevas playas todos los días. Iría nuevamente y em quedaría allá!

What else can I say that the other comments haven't mentioned.  This place blew us away. When you think about not having air conditioner you wonder if it will be comfortable, wow with that breeze from the ocean and the big ceiling fans there was no need. Radamir and Sandra were the best house porters you can imagine. They are so helpful and willing to assist in all your needs. You are so close to playa rincon, playita and even cayo leventado.  The local "bodegas" have all that you need.  You must rent a four wheeler to cruise the town.  Thank you so much Cindy for hanging out with us and given us such a great experience.  See you next year.

We just spent two highly satisfying weeks in this oceanfront, comfortable house. With its cathedral height, thatched roof, its well equipped kitchen and the breezy bedrooms, our experience was superb. Opening the ocean looking front door and observing everyday the blue hues of sky and ocean,  was, in itself,  an outstanding sensory  happenning. The dancing coconut palms, watching a youngster climbing a palm tree with his bare hands and feet, being able to buy fresh fish from the area fisherman, and finding fresh produce and fruits  in nearby kiosks added unexpected dimensions to our stay. We used local "public" cars and even "motoconchos" to visit El Francés, Rincón, Las Galeras and Playita beaches, all gems, moving  around swiftly and securely. Local people were always friendly and courteous. Finally, our vacation days were enhanced by the lovely family of Radamés, Sandra, Radimir and the affectionate two dogs in charge of  the property but also willing to help us with any requests. Hans was quite welcoming and informative. The house is in Talanquera's sector of Las Galeras and when you walk around you do not cease to wonder at the virgin and rustic beauty that surrounds you. In short, for a couple like us who like nature and enjoy local people and customs, the location,  serenity and beauty of Villa Punta Coral exceeded our expectations and offered  a meaningful vacation, that left us with a dreamy need to return in the future.

The pictures truly do not give justice as to how spectacular the home is. You have way more room in the home then we had anticipated. Absolutely beautiful! The family that stays in their own home on the property are the best people I have met. They made us feel secure and let us have a bon fire on the beach next the waves smashing into the rocks. They also helped us cook and cleaned daily. I have never met such kind people. I stayed at two places in the Dominican and this one I wished I stayed at the entire time. Cindy is also amazing. Extremely helpful and kind. At one point my ATM card wasn't working and she even offered to cover me some cash until I got the issue with the bank resolved. We didn't have to do that but she was so kind and caring to offer. This property has a beach but you cant swim due to the rocks. There are amazing beaches close by. We were a bit Leary about not having a swimmable beach but once you see the waves hitting the rocks you don't care about a short dive to a local beach. Playa Ricon beach was 10 times better then Punta Cana's beaches as well. It is remote but if you want to experience the DR then stay away from the resort and stay here. I judge by whether or not I would come back. I would come back here in a heart beat. Thanks Cindy!

We had a terrific stay at Villa Punta Coral!  It was a nice change from staying in Punta Cana at an all inclusive resort.  You can find nice fresh fish down a little road towards the ocean in Los Cacaos.  The best market is Mimasa just past the third roundabout in Samana.  The view is lovely.  The villa is lovely.  The pool is lovely.  Thank you for a terrific stay!

Justo acabamos de llegar a España porque estuvimos unos días finalmente en Santo Domingo.  Decirte que la casa fue maravillosa, la esperaba bonita por las fotos pero en la realidad lo es aún más, fueron unos días maravillosos.
Los encargados de la casa fueron muy amables y correctos en todo momento y tú también fuiste muy amable con nosotros. No sé qué más se puede decir, fue perfecto, GRACIAS.

We're just back from a short, 29 days stay at the villa . It's way better than what you see on the pictures, ocean is a lot closer, the sun is a lot warmer and bright, the only thing I regret is the short, short time we spent there! We were party of six people and there's enough space for 8 really. Cindy arranged everything on our complicated late night arrival and was there whenever we needed some help (even acted as translator on the phone) and gave us some good and useful advices on the neighborhood and places to visit. As I mentioned earlier the only thing that was missing was more time to enjoy this heaven on earth.
We're definitely going to be back.

Amazing home, stunning view!

When my family and I arrived at Villa Punta Coral we were thrilled with the home. The on-line photos are wonderful, but they don't do justice to this gorgeous home. The house was quiet and secluded, and the only sounds we heard were the sounds of the wind and the waves. The care takers were very attentive and helpful. Sandra prepared dinner for us on our last night there, and it was phenomenal. We were able to spot whales almost everyday.
It was such a treat for us to wake up and enjoy an oceanside cup of coffee every morning! We felt very comfortable and very safe here during our two weeks stay.
We had a rental car, which I would recommend, and it was an easy drive to Las Galeras and surrounding villages.

We would definitely stay here if we visit the area again!

Normally when we go on vacation, we stay in a hotel but friends recommended this beautiful villa to us and we absolutely loved it!  Breathtaking views of the ocean, refreshing pool, lush tropical garden, clean and spacious home.  Although we were not staying in a hotel, I didn't need to do anything.  The housekeeping cleaned the house daily and cooked for us a few incredibly tasty local dishes!  We already booked our next stay for 2015!

VILLA PUNTA CORAL c'est le paradis...

VILLA PUNTA CORAL paradise on earth...

En primavera ya fue la segunda vez que pasé unas maravillosas vacaciones en Villa Punta Coral.
La villa se encuentra en un lugar muy tranquilo, aunque a poca distancia de pequeños supermercados locales y restaurantes con cocina local o francesa. La finca está amueblada y decorada con mucho gusto y ofrece todas las facilidades que se puedan desear: un paseo en el jardín, descansar bajo las palmeras, cocinar al propio gusto en la cocina perfectamente equipada o en la barbacoa al lado de la piscina ...
Para los madrugadores como yo fue una experiencia inolvidable observar como el sol sale del océano y disfrutar del desayuno a la vista de este impresionante espectáculo.
En resumen, Villa Punta Coral me tiene encantada, y tengo muchas ganas de volver allí cuanto antes.

J’ai passé deux semaines incroyables à la villa Punta Coral avec ma famille. Il y a une vue de l'océan magnifiques de chaque chambre et on voyait des baleines passées devant la maison quasiment tous les jours : un vrai spectacle! La tranquillité à la villa Punta Coral est incomparable. Il y a des plages magnifiques dans l'environ et plein d'activités: visite parc national, chute d'eau superbe, balade en cheval, bateaux et quad... Bref, des vacances de rêve!

I stayed at Villa Punta Coral for about 6 months and absolutely loved it! It is energizing to wake up to the view of a deep blue ocean and swishing palms, having coffee outside, and then get to work in the serenity of this Caribbean home.
I will definitely be back!
