A Wonderful House!!
This house is wonderful and provides a central location for a fabulous vacation. Beaches, world class golf, local restaurants in a village and mall, the airport , all less than 10 minutes away, The pool, outdoor settings, luxury bedrooms and baths make a perfect combination. And the house is isolated from the all inclusive sprawl of hotels further up the beach.Friendly and competent staff are another plus.”
Villas Las Palmas
Beautiful open home which was very convenient to get around. The staff was very attentive and friendly. It was a little difficult to communicate with them because We dont speak Spanish. Definitely take advantage of at least one night having Miguelina make dinner for you. It was fabulous. If you go on an excursion have them pick you up at the Westin. It's the most convenient. You may want to bring your own Wifi capabilities. If there are any questions or concerns while you are there Maria is very speedy on getting it resolved. Overall it was an Excellent vacation and we would go again.”
Wonderful haven amongst coconut trees
We spent 2 weeks in this villa and we have had such a great time. The resort is great and everything is within 10 min golf cart ride. Our children loved the white beaches and clear water, kids club at the Westin hotel, tennis camp, horse riding and petting zoo. The staff at the villa made our stay very special (Miguelina & Vincente) cutting fresh fruits every morning and bringing us fresh coconuts to hydrate us during the day. We organised a special night with their recommended chef, which was fabulous too. The only downside...the mosquitoes loved me and my daughters! All in all, we would happily return and recommend this villa! xxx Gaelle & Marc”
Wonderful Sea at Villa Las Palmas
We had a wonderful time in the Dominican and enjoyed having Villa Las Palmas as our home base! It was fabulous!”
Beautiful home at Punta Cana Resort.
Great stay! The area around the home has everything anyone would want or need plus a golf cart to get there. Do not miss the walk through the rainforest with fresh water lagoons or Six Senses Spa. The entire staff is fabulous! The cook made delicious, healthy meals. He even made some great Vegan food on request! The owner was extremely helpful and went the extra mile to make sure we had a great time!”
Luxury at its best
Extraordinary property, friendly and caring staff!! I would like to be back soon! ”
One of the best Villas the Dominican has to offer!!!
Another Amazing time at Villa Las Palmas!!! The Villa is located in the most exclusive part of Punta Cana All of the best Restaurants, Beachs and water activities are just a five minute golf cart ride away. The house manager is always a phone call away and she stays on top of everything to make sure your stay exceeds your expectations. The owner is very easy to work with and always available. The villa's deco is incredible and amazingly tranquil with a meditation fountain in the middle of the great room. The pool is big enough to swim laps and is surrounded by huge palm trees. Great for a dip under the stars before heading off to one of the very comfortable beds. Dont forget to try the outdoor shower or large Jacuzzi in the master bedroom No need to worry about security, the entire area is tight as a drum for a great nights sleep. Highly recommend Villa Las Palmas and will be back soon. ”
Wow!!!! Awesome Villa
Stayed at Viila Las Palmas last week and oh what an incredible time my wife and I had. This Villa is absolutely stunning. We were greeted at the front door by Vicente (houseman) who would not let us touch our luggage. He is incredible!!! Not only is the villa perfectly located near everything including fine restaurants but the staff is amazing. We dined on Authentic Dominican food prepared by Miguelina and served in the formal outdoor dining room. Pool was awesome and secluded. Security is never a question. Don't forget the beaches only a 3 minute golf cart ride away....Will so be back. Z ”
This was my second visit to this beautiful home and everything was flawless. Jan is a great communicator and does everything to make your stay enjoyable. If you depend on WIFI bring your own WIFI extender as the home is large and you will not get a signal in parts of the home”
Spell Paradise with an "M"
The beauty of a holiday is the little things that add up to make the "get away" exceptional. Let's get the standard stuff out of the way. It's a beautiful home in a beautiful resort with three of the best golf courses in the Caribbean within 20 minutes from the house. Seven restaurants to choose from, at least 2 beaches, tennis, all types of water sports, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. Now on to the things that made our stay so special. MIGILENIA (I apologize if my spelling is not accurate). Migilenia was one of two full time staff members that take of care of the house and take care of you. My wife loves to cook. But every time she tried to clear the dishes from the table and clean after a meal, Migilenia would seeming appear out of the ether to take care of it all. She kept the home spotless, turned down the beds every night and simply took care of all those things that while on holiday you just don't want to deal with. What a pleasure. The infinity pool: The pool itself is exceptionally large, but the pool chairs is where it's at. There are two floatable pool/lounge chairs that keep your entire body submerged except for your upper torso and head. Pool napping was never better. And the Hammock: A late afternoon snooze in the shade with a sea breeze defines what being able to "get away" is all about. As you can tell we had a great time. But be forewarned or at least understanding. Like all of the Caribbean everything works on "island" time. But all that means is that you must manage your expectations in terms of when things happen. After all isn't keeping to a well planned schedule day in and day out the reason most of need to get away. I guess what I saying is don't sweat the small stuff. There is way too much to enjoy at Villa La Palmas to let a "pebble in your shoe" get the best of you.”
