My wife and I spent 4 days at Villa Celeste for the 4th of July break with another couple/best friends to escape all the hustle and madness of Los Angeles. We purposely wanted to find a place that would give us all the comforts of home while also giving us the authentic feel of D.R. If this is what you are looking for, look no further. Vanessa and David are the owners of this hidden gem. For "only" english speakers, no need to worry. They are from the NYC/New Jersey area haha :)
Now for the food! Vanessa and the kitchen staff are amazing. Everything is made from local ingredients … sometimes from the backyard ha. Towards the end of our trip, we have become accustomed to Vanessa coming to our table and explaining in great detail what we were eating. Again, a Foodies dream come true. Best of luck :)
Lastly, I gave the swimming pool a 4 out of 5 because it's the neighborhood swimming pool - not run and operated Villa Celeste. The pool was clean and the staff were nice. If you are looking to have a Vegas style pool party but Dominican style, this is the place. They have a live band and DJ. You can't help but lean how to meringue or bachata from inside the pool!
