“Perfection itself.”

Wow. We have just returned home to the UK after staying at VIlla Punta Coral for ten days with our three teenage children. I cannot say enough about this beautiful property and surrounding land. We literally have found paradise. So, the booking? We booked through HolidayLettings but you can go directly to their website and book. Hans, the manager got back to us very quickly with our booking confirmation and gave us lots of useful info about nearby supermarkets and excursions. He was fantastic and we can't thank him enough.
There are onsite caretakers who were very lovely and kind and cleaned the house and looked after us very well too.
The villa itself is stunningly beautiful. It takes your breath away when you see it. There's a terrace with a big dining table. We had lunch outside many times looking for whales in the ocean as we ate and chatted. The swimming pool is a lovely size and very cooling on the wonderfully hot days we enjoyed in The Dominican.
There is a private beach which is quite stunning too. The waves crash against the coral rock and you almost have to pinch yourself to believe your surroundings.
Inside the house it is very comfortable. It's also very clean too. We always stay in villas and cleanliness is one of the first things I look for. It is spotless. The bedrooms are very comfortable and it was like home from home to us.
It was our first visit to the Caribbean and my husband has a policy of never going to the same place twice so that we can travel the world and see and experience different things. This time we have arrived home and discussed moving here to live. WE LOVED IT THAT MUCH!
The wifi was the best we have ever had on holiday. It was perfect in fact. That impressed us very much, particularly the kids who seem to rely on it ever more.

The area itself it stunning. Las Galeras beach is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen and it's a short drive from the villa. There is a lovely little cocktail bar on the beach where we drank pina coladas from pineapples and rum from a coconut! Heaven!! We visited Playa Rincon which was a favourite with my husband and kids. The sea is warm and turquoise blue. La Playita is beautiful too. There are plenty of lovely restaurants in the area but one in particular that stood out to us was La Marseillaise. We dined there twice a day many times and their Nutella crepe are to die for!

To conclude, this was literally the best holiday we have ever had. The villa, the management/ onsite caretakers and the surrounding area made it the most perfect holiday and we are still talking about leaving the uk and living here. Driving down the street and hearing Caribbean music and seeing people living simple lives was very appealing to us. My kids have iPads/pods/ phones.. You don't need that stuff here. It is a country of outstanding natural beauty. It makes me think that half of the world is doing it all wrong.... I have arrived home and all I see is concrete. We WILL return to this villa and thank you once again Hans.

“Why would I go to heaven if I’ve already found paradise"”
Reviewed 3 March 2016 for a stay in January 2016

people found this review helpful

We stayed at Villa Punta Coral for about 14 days and we loved it !!
The beautiful house, colonial décor with an outside patio, the refreshing pool , the view of the blue ocean and the coconut palms made everything very heavenly.
Every morning we woke up with the sound of the waves and the wind
rustling through the trees.
From the terrace house we were able to spot whales at regular basis.
The care takers were very lovely, attentive and helpful. they took care of everything and they made us feel like home and we felt very secure.
Close by you can visit amazing beaches such as : El Rincòn and La
Playita. The water there has a nice temperature to swim.
In the restaurants nearby you can eat delicious, you have fresh fish and the fruit is very juicy and tasty.
Visiting Villa Punta Coral is better than staying in a hotel and is definitely recommended.
If we have the opportunity we would certainly go back.

Linda & Harry

Normally when we go on vacation, we stay in a hotel but friends recommended this beautiful villa to us and we absolutely loved it! Breathtaking views of the ocean, refreshing pool, lush tropical garden, clean and spacious home. Although we were not staying in a hotel, I didn't need to do anything. The housekeeping cleaned the house daily and cooked for us a few incredibly tasty local dishes! We already booked our next stay for 2015!

It doesn't get any better than this! Right next to the ocean with incredible views from every room in the villa; beautiful tropical garden, refreshing pool, all necessary amenities, very clean and friendly staff! Also the village Las Galeras has everything you need; various restaurants, shops and plenty of adventurous activities. (this of course besides the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen!). I will definitely come back!
