April 2015, we just finished two months at San Marino residences in Playa Dorada, Puerto Plata. It was the best long term condo rental anyone could ever experience in the Dominican Republic.
The three bedroom Condo was spacious bright, clean, with up to date appliances and was well stocked with plenty of houseware items. The living room had sectional seating on-looking a large patio. Flat Screen televisions were provided in the living room and all bedrooms. Plenty of fresh linens and towels were provided and an onsite cleaning and laundry service was at our disposal making our stay even more enjoyable.
This was our first long term stay through the winter months. The condo owner Cindy, took all of the concerns about this sort of stay away from us. She provided all the information and assistance we needed. Any question we posed was answered timely and in detail. Knowing that we had a go to person at every step of the way was a great comfort to us.
The grounds, pool and reception area were beautiful and very well maintained. The staff was very helpful and understanding, making us feel welcomed. We felt very safe at all times at San Marino as well as the Playa Dorada complex. Transportation was never an issue as the taxi service was reasonable, very reliable and willing to go just about anywhere on the North Coast.
All in all, we discovered a wonderful area of the Dominican. From the spectacular beach and private beach bar, large pool, Ocean World, golf, drinks on the Malecon, to fine dining, our two month stay could not have been better. This was a great place to start experiencing genuine Dominican culture!
All the best,
