“Stanza Mare is the Best”
Reviewed 12 January 2009

Upon arriving to the island, my boyfriend and I had not made arrangements for accomodations. We completely lucked upon Stanza Mare and it's good we did, we loved it right away. Our host, Emanuele, gave us a wonderful bargain for the weeks we ended up staying. Friendly service, great food, huge pool, internet, clean rooms. The beach out front was the most quiet section for miles. Other resorts along the way were over-populated with families and noisy with music and games. Stanza Mare is unique in that it provides a quiet place where you can actually relax. And just down the way from it is a groovy little place called Soles Chill Out where we enjoyed really good drinks and nice meals. It's on the spendy side but worth it to be in an environment of super-cool music and good vibes from all who patronize the place. We went there often.
If it hadn't been for our stay at Stanza Mare, our experience would've been much different. It is the only place we found that suited our tastes and standards. All the other places we saw on our walks were disturbingly cheesy and over-run.

I'm from Hollywood. I'm spoiled. I've traveled a lot in the troipics. THIS PLACE STANDS OUT.

Taxi driver was about to drop me off at the place right next door - the Hotel Suena (HORRIBLE!!! DO NOT GO THERE!!!)

The Suena security guard pointed at the Stanza Mare "It's new. You'll like it better."

Man.. this place had it all. And I mean, everything that no other place on the island has. Cleanliness. Efficiency. Great food. Great price. Right next door to the hippest place on the beach - Sole's Chill Out Bar.

Stanza Mare does have wireless, but it drops out a little from time to time. Grab your laptop and walk to Sole's, they've good wireless. As for Sole's... Chill cocktails and food are both truly excellent here, as well as the Resort. Sole's is a mini-Ibiza. Sexiest Euro's on the island. (Heard people complain about the food at many places but nothing to complain about here.)

Emanuele, the 24 year old Italian running the Stanza Mare, was on top of everything. If there was a problem, it was nothing that he couldn't get fixed right away. All problems were the sort that the tropics dish out - unavoidable. But Emanuele is a super star resort manager. Smart. Dedicated. A hard worker. He'll go places in his career!

I mean, this is luxury condo hotel on the cleanest, quietest, whitest, nicest stretch of beach for miles. DO NOT GO HERE IF YOU WANT ONE OF THE CHEESY-[--] PLACES THAT STRETCH THIS ENTIRE COASTLINE. Go here is you want safety, cleanliness, great service and attitude, and want all that for a price. The nicest beach on the coast. By far.

(I know that by writing this that it's going to change it all. I don't want that. The country is already basically ruined by the monster resorts that are walltowall down the beach. Only go here if you're a frkn hot sexy Euro that wants to be in the last vestige of what makes the DR great.

These condos can be rented by the month. Or even purchased. I was there 3 weeks and wanted to stay longer. Get a price in advance, for everything you do in DR. They're all good at getting a little extra now and then if you're not cautious.

Reviewed 29 December 2008

We've just spent the last month at the Stanza Mare in Punta Cana. I really can't say enough about how positive our experience has been. Check-in went smoothly with our requests for a room with a view being accomodated. The grounds were immaculate with a beautiful pool and poolside restaurant/bar. Our room was a 2bedroom 2bathroom, with a fully stocked kitchen. It had all the comforts of home while still offering the luxury of a 'resort feeling'. The condos are situated on the most beautiful stretch of beach we've ever seen. It really is just like the pictures show. No photo touchups here! Because it is a smaller resort there are no issues with reserving beach or pool chairs, there are plenty for everyone. Staff members truly went beyond the expected, doing anything to make our trip more enjoyable. Even opening up the mini-market after hours for my daughter so she could buy some coke. The manager, Emanuel was readily available to assist with any need that arose. Personally checking in on us the 1st evening to be sure the apartment was up to standards and not lacking anything. Our request for ice trays was filled immediately. If you are looking for a vacation experience different from your overcrowded all-inclusive, the Stanza Mare is for you. We will definitely be back and would recommend this accomodation to anyone.
