“Great non-resort option”

This condo was great. We had a group of 6 people, who fit wonderfully in the 3 bedroom, 3 bath space. The photos in the listing are true to life. It was really nice to have enough bathrooms, and for us to have shared living space and a kitchen. The kitchen was stocked with plenty of dishes and cookware, plus toaster, blender, coffeemaker, etc. The pools at the condo are clean and well-kept, staff was friendly, neighbors gave us lots of suggestions, and there are outdoor grills to use. The location is safe, comfortably walk-able to many restaurants and a few grocery places. We bought food for breakfasts and mostly went out for lunch and dinner. There is a constant breeze but we did use the air conditioner a few nights, especially in the upstairs master bedroom where it got pretty warm. However, our electric bill for 5 nights was only about $40, so not too bad.

The other condos seemed like it was more long-term rentals. It was mostly retirees, and some families with kids. It was pretty quiet. Our group was late 20s-early 30s, but we weren't being super rowdy or staying up very late, so we fit in fine. If you were planning on late night drunken pool parties, you might get some attention for it.

A couple days, we bought day passes at the Barcelo Dominican Beach resort (~$40 per person, from 10am-6pm. Access to all pools and beaches, bars, and restaurants open at that time. It was a great deal.) We also used the public beach access, which was also fine, although you don't have beach chairs that way, and there are salespeople trying to sell you boat rides and things. We didn't do any excursions, but there is information at the condo if you want to. We used Phil's recommended taxi company for all of our trips to and from the airport, plus transportation out for a fancy dinner one night. They were wonderful, easy to contact, very prompt. The housekeeper, Heriberta, who met us with the keys was very friendly and helpful in getting us settled. The wifi was also VERY appreciated.

All in all, we were a little concerned about going outside a resort for this trip, but it ended up being a great decision. We wanted to be able to comfortably hang out with our whole group, and take care of some of our own food and drink needs. This was the perfect location to do that. Phil was also very responsive, both while we were planning the trip, and also while we were there. Totally recommend this spot.

One note: brush up on your Spanish. We assumed that because we were in a resort location, the majority of people would speak English. This was not entirely true. You would mostly be able to get around without Spanish, but things like the taxi would be much more difficult. We certainly appreciated the Spanish speakers in our group who did most of the talking.

“Perfect apartment for a group/family vacation”
Reviewed 29 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We loved staying at this apartment, comfortable beds, great patio space, easy to cook in kitchen. Pools and grills in the common area were a hit. Close walk to the beach, grocery stores, and restaurants. Highly recommend the restaurant one block away, Pastrata.
Landlord is very available by email/phone, coordinated taxi from the airport. Great place for family or small group of friends.

Bavaro is pretty full of all inclusive resorts and the beaches nearby can get crowded. Consider renting a car and driving to Macao or other close beaches.

Great wifi! (though it gets weak in the master bedroom) Only room for improvement would be in shower water pressure, but that comes with the territory when traveling.

Liked best: Short walk to the beach, grilling fresh fish by the pool.
Liked least: Water pressure, but it really is fine!
