“One of the most relaxing vacations ever!”
Reviewed 19 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We vacationed at Villa Playamor as a group of ten friends. Renting a house with a cook and maid was a first for all of us. Try it at least once in your life. Our cook, Nellie provided us with traditional island dishes as well as a few American. From our experience, we recommend staying with the island dishes and let Nellie take care of the menu. She doesn't disappoint. One evening we enjoyed a roast pig dinner. The pig was delivered hot from the barbeque and carved up for us in the kitchen. It doesn't get any better!
Gus visited to house on our first full day and we had the option of reviewing and booking any excursions. Ours wasn't an activity driven stay, we enjoyed massages on the porch and the guys went deep sea fishing. Gus coordinated these things for us. The ladies were content to sit in the sun and read by the pool with a view of the ocean, pure relaxation. We walked to the beach one day and found it to be sea weedy. If you are looking for a ocean experience, several day trip options could address this. The owners of Villa Playamor are attentive to detail, they provided detailed suggestions for planning purposes and arranged our transportation to and from Santiago airport. Everyone in our group would love to do this again.

“Wonderful view for watching the sunrise”
Reviewed 31 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

This was the first time that I have stayed in a private villa with staff. It was an incredible experience. The food was delicious! The staff very kind. The view from the villa was spectacular. Most beautiful place on the planet to watch a sunrise. Highly recommend for family or friend reunions. This little slice of heaven is bucket list worthy.

“Absolutely Awesome”
Reviewed 25 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

This villa was gorgeous, well staffed, and within walking distance to the beach. It would be perfect for larger groups, smaller groups, family reunions, etc. I would recommend it to everybody looking for a place to stay in the Dominican Republic.

“Wonderful, huge house with plenty of amenities--including a maid and cook”
Reviewed 17 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Villa Playamor was amazing. The house is kept incredibly clean, it is designed perfectly to host large groups of any sort or age-range, and is conveniently located.

Whether you're interested in traveling around the northern part of the Dominican Republic, lounging on the beach, or spending time near a beautiful pool/patio area, this house is a great choice.

I traveled with a group of about 13 and everyone had a fantastic experience, but for me the following items were the highlights:

1) The cook, Nellie, made wonderful food and was more than happy to help make the stay more convenient and enjoyable;
2) The pool and patio area was great for our group to relax and hang out after each day's activities;
3) Each bedroom was spacious and clean and had its own bathroom; and
4) We were able to take a short cab ride anywhere we wanted to go or walk to the beach/local restaurants.

I would definitely recommend Villa Playamor to a friend.

“Absolutely Fantastic”
Reviewed 21 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

It was gorgeous. The whole experience was wonderful. The staff is very couteous, very smart, speaks English, and there to make your stay enjoyable. They are fantastic cooks, and are always trying to please. The villa itself is suitable for a romantic getaway, a family reunion, or for a mission group. Each bedroom has its own private bathroom, and private balcony or patio depending on what floor it is. The pool was a delight. The views from there are awesome. It is so nice that it is a 5 minute walk to the beach and stores. There are also places to go to have refreshments, but with the cooks they have, it is not necessary. Also, there are these books where you can pick out your own meals, and also go on tours. There is a night watchman on duty all night. What more can I say about this wonderful place. It is a definite place to put on your bucket list.

“A wonderful place to relax and enjoy!”
Reviewed 5 June 2012 for a stay in May 2012

Rented the Villa May 26-June 1st. The pictures you see on the site are really nice but oh when you get there! It is more magnificent!!! The view of the beach from the Villa is picturesque. All the information that Mr. Spencer provides is really on point. He leaves no guess work as to what to expect with the staff, the local restaurants, etc. The cocinar Nelly is a wonderful cook! It was such a treat to be spoiled by her with the delicious meals. With the exception of eating at Chris and Mady's the first night, we never ventured out after having our first meal prepared by Nelly. Thank you Nellie for your wonderful cuisine! Thanks to Willie and Sandy as well. They are very pleasant and were a of great assistance with whatever questions and/or directions we needed. Family that came for short stays loved the place so much, no one wanted to leave. If you are tired of the all-inclusive scene and just really want to relax, enjoy great food, and have a wonderful time with your family and/or friends....hands down, this is the place to go! Thanks so much Mr. and Mrs. Spencer for giving us the opportunity to stay in your wonderful Villa. Loved it so much, will definitely will be back!
