First of all, I choose this apartment because the owner was very responsive and very pleasant. I had other offers that were competitive, but the interaction with the owner compelled me to book this one. This was my first time in Punta Cana and the manager's cust service in helping me to understand distance was greatly appreciated. Although both of them can hardly speak english, the interaction was second to none. (The difference between home made pie and store purchased)
The unit is gorgeous (tastefully updated-the one bedroom can use a little updating-but it is still definitely worth staying there). The property and surrounding area was amazing!!! . My 13yr old spent most of his time in the pool and he really improved his swimming while he was there. The property is very quiet and the people are very friendly. I felt like I was at home.
There is also security available 24-7 and that made me feel very safe since I do not speak spanish. I would definitely recommend a rental car because taxi will get pretty expensive, especially when they realize your are an American tourist. There restaurants, stores and grocery stores are 5 minutes drive. The beach, banks etc is 10 minutes drive away. I wouldnt recommed walking unless you trully love to exercise.
The only downside is the cost of electricity. It is very very expensive. The kitchen also lacked some utensils that would have made things a lot easier, but it was an oversight, so the kitchen should be fully equipped now.
I was in Punta Cana for six days and I loved every moment of it. . There is so much to learn from the people and their culture. The experience also made me look at life a lot differently than I did before.
I will definitely be going back and will be taking some friends with me.
Thank you Patricia and Carmen for allowing me to stay in your apartment!!!!!!!
