<p> Having been to Punta Cana several times a year over the last few years, I have had the opportunity to view many of the properties in the Punta Cana Resort. Las Palmas is one of the best available for rental. The Villa is so comfortable, the Staff so accommodating, you may not want to leave. But, if you don't, you will miss the many attractions available just a short bike or golf cart ride away. The golfing, the beach, the natural springs, the Clubhouse Grill for a drink or lunch, the Marina for a boat ride, the Spa for a massage or facial. </p> <p> </p> <p> We arrived at the always being improved airport at 3 PM and were happily situated by the pool at Las Palmas by 3:30. The villa is moments from the airport and 5 minutes to the Punta Canta village where there is now a super grocery store with all the foods from home you could never find before. Other village favorites are Brote for bagels (as good as in NYC, believe it or not!), Mama Luisa's Italian (make sure to say Hola to Mama!), Il Polso Portugeuse (Just reopened recently after a make-over with excellent food and a lovely young couple who run it), and Pizzarelli Pizzaria (darn good pizza). </p> <p> </p> <p> If it sounds like all we did was eat, you'd be correct. When not dining out, we threw several dinner parties at the Villa. Intimate dinners for four to family style sit-downs for ten. The kitchen and grill at Las Palmas are perfect for entertaining and as the weather is usually fabulous, you get to dine out under the stars almost every night. </p> <p> </p> <p> Regarding the weather, October is still considered Low Season in the Dominican Republic because of heavy rainfall, heat and humidity. Not any more! In the two weeks we were there it did not even rain once to disturb our days or evenings. All rain conveniently fell at night when we were safely in our beds! </p> <p> </p> <p> The Staff of the Villa meticulously maintain the grounds and interiors. The Owner and the Property Manager were both accommodating to our needs, and were such a pleasure to deal with that we are planning on staying in touch in the hopes of getting together next time we are in Punta Cana, possibly January 2012. </p> <p> </p><hr> <p> <strong> Owner's Response </strong> </p> <p> </p> <p> Thank you for your kind words. Not only do we have a spectacular villa located in the most exclusive section of the best resort in the Dominican Republic, but we strive to provide the best service possible for our guests so that their vacation is memorable in every way possible. </p> <p> </p> <p> We are one of the very few villas who provide not only a fulltime maid and gardener/handyman, but more importantly an on-site property manager to assist the guests while they are staying at the villa. Airport transfers, car rentals, golf cart rentals, villa pre-stocking of food/drinks, chefs, butlers, nannies, drivers, golf discounts, tennis lessons, restaurant reservations, spa services and more are just a few of the many services we provide to our guests.
<p> The reviews on this house are spot on. It's a wonderful house at a high end resort with an awfully nice housekeeper. There's always a breeze to go with the pleasent views over the golf course. </p> <p> </p> <p> We enjoyed it. </p> <p> </p> <p> Recommended for: Age 55+, Adventure Seekers, Girls Getaway, Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children, People with Disabilities, Romantic Getaway
A wonderful welcoming house on an exceptional property in a 5 star resort. The house provided privacy and comfort for all while the common spaces invited conversation and socializing. The fully equipped kitchen, complete with charming housekeeper, is open to the outside and pool area so that the flow is terrific. It is a treat to bicycle or walk around the entire Punta Cana resort and the golf course is one of the best. The exquisite beaches are very close and the spa is top notch. In addition, being close to the airport is very convenient and allows you to make the most of your vacation. I can't wait to return next year.
<p>Home is as nice as seen in pictures. Maid was great. Best part was the ease of communication with stateside manager/owner who assisted in making our vacation as smooth as possible! Very detail oriented and much appreciated.</p><p> </p><hr><p> Owner Response:</p><p> </p><p> Our goal is to not only have the nicest villa for rent in Punta Cana, but also to offer the best possible service for our guests so that their vacation can be truly stress-free and memorable. Thanks so much for the kind words.</p>
Villa Las Palmas is an ideal vacation house. The villa, grounds, and location are truly perfect. The rooms are fabulous and the layout gives everyone a lot of privacy. There's also great staff, including an amazing chef. The beaches are very close and are some of the most beautiful I've ever seen (and I've seen gorgeous beaches). And great golf courses. Fabulous week -- can't wait to come back!
Perfect vacation spot! <p> This is a perfect island getaway. The villa is exquisite -- perfect layout, giving everyone privacy. The pool and grounds are beautiful and really well-maintained. The staff is great -- efficient and very nice and the chef was outstanding! And the location -- we drove around and this is by far the best location in Punta Cana, right on the golf course and short walk to many of the most beautiful beaches I've seen, plus the golf club and spa. Just sorry I could only stay one week. </p> <p> </p> <p> We enjoyed it. </p> <p> </p> <p> Recommended for: Age 55+, Girls Getaway, Tourists without a car, People with Disabilities, Romantic Getaway </p> <p> </p><hr> <p> <strong> Owner's Response </strong> </p> <p> </p> <p> Our goal with this villa is to offer not only the best villa for rent within this very exclusive and luxurious resort, but to provide the best service possible so that everyone can enjoy their vacation. I am so glad you enjoyed the chef. He is really incredible. Next time, if you wish to have a butler or nannies, we will also provide those services at a very reasonable rate. You are welcome back anytime!
<p> Beautifully designed villa in a great location. So comfortable and quiet, highly recommend. The area is very safe and beautiful and you can spend the entire time on the resort with quite a few restaurant options or can head about twenty minutes to Bavaro with the all-inclusive resorts for more nightlife choices. We absolutely loved how the entire resort felt so private, it is very easy to find yourself on an expansive beach with no one around. Loved zipping around on the golf cart! Could not recommend this are more, and this villa was one of the most beautiful that we saw. Simply a perfect vacation. </p>
<p> This was a dream vacation. The villa was beyond our wildest expectation. The pictures are incredible on line but the warmth and character of this property is breathtaking. I travel extensively and have always done 5 star hotels but no longer after this amazing experience. The property was only minutes from the airport with impeccable security & convenience to La Cana & Corales Golf Courses. Corales was the best golf experience anyone can imaging. Also, Six Sense Spa was incredible after each round. Mode of transportation on property is on golf carts so access to golf, dining & spa simple.</p> <p> </p> <p> The attention to detail and follow-up throughout the entire process was second to none. Property management was detailed and extraordinary pre-arrival to departure. We began each morning with a swim in the infinity pool before enjoying breakfast pool side.</p> <p> </p> <p> Service staff was phenomenal as they met every request. I will definitely stay again and share this piece of heaven with family & friends in Punta Cana. </p>
<p> Having made numerous trips to the Dominican Republic, I can easily say that the Las Palmas residence is probably the finest in Punta Cana available for rental. Proximity to the golf course, a short walk to the beach and beach club, moments from the airport and village, the house itself is so comfortable and inviting that you never want to leave. The staff is excellent, attending to your every need. Las Palmas = Perfection! </p>
It;s been a long time since I was happy with the entire package!! Tremendous home, overwhelmeing service, perfect beds and more Golf than even I could handle. All within the development. Thanks for giving complete satisfaction to my group of 8 and with any luck we will take advantage of this environment again. The home is exquisite and was even better than the pictures showed. The space allowed for great lounge area and yet we never fell on top of each other. The custom shutters kept it dark when we needed rest and the sunlight in when we needed vitamin sun... I would give a solid reference to anyone who would be interested in the Home... Beautiful and Thanks again!!!!!
