Wish We were still there

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 10, 2012

We had such a good time and the people were the friendiest people in the world. The only thing we did not like was when you were going on day trips you always miss the line up for the special ala carte meals. They should have a better system for that because it is like being punished for wanting to see and spend your money seeing the sights. I would go back in a heart beat, the hotel was pretty, the bathrooms were tired looking but we only slept there and grabbed a shower so who cares, I would tell my friends to go there. The young man selling the tours is the most polite young person I have met in a long time. He was even invited to our home in Bathurst New Brunswick, Thank you again for our wonderful vacation . We stayed there from March 21-march 28, 2012

Unique Quality: The walkway around the resort is wonderful, the grounds are spotless and nature friendly for the peacocks. Everybody works hard to keep it looking like this Thank you, the 3 pools are spottless and very clean.

Bavaro Sun Beach Condo A-6

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 9, 2008

BEWARE

We rented a condo at Bavaro Sun Beach from Carlos Prato. From day one it was one problem after another. The condo listing featured many amenities that either were not there or not working. His assistant Maria did not speak English so it was a constant show and tell.

The condo listed numerous features and never did we think we would be so inconvienced. The listing stated a washer and dryer. The washer was not hooked up and there was not a dryer in the condo. The listing stated one towel in the master and that was it. We solved our towel situation after many requests and failed conversations with Maria.

Maria did not explain how to use the stove and it ran out of propane. It took a day to have it refilled. The unit did not have a blender or a toaster, however we did receive those a couple of days after checking in.

The second bathroom was not working when we arrived on a Thursday. We were told that we plugged the toliet by placing toliet paper in it. They finally had a plumber come on Tuesday of the following week.

There was a large terrance on the roof that had two light fixutres and no light bulbs.A small plastic table and four chairs were our evening relaxation. There were numerous missing bulbs and no small lamps in the unit. We were told our electric bill was 70.00 and we would have to pay over 25.00 which was the standard amount for our time. A neighbor who owns her own condo said her electric bill was 50.00 for a month.

If you rent this condo be prepared to rough it as it is not a vacation spot that you can relax and enjoy. It was one hassle after another. My best advice is not to rent from this resident of the Dominican but to rent from an American or an American agency. We had no recourse and felt like he took advantage of us in every way.

Unique Quality: Pretty building and nicely landscaped.

Directions: A bit of a walk to and from grocery store carrying bags.
