Nestled in lush tropical gardens with a 105 foot swimming pool, directly fronting one of Dominican Republic’s finest beaches at 50 yards, our penthouse offers a unique blend of seclusion, easy access to a wide array of leisure activities, and an authentic Caribbean way of life. Far from mass tourism hot spots such as Punta Cana or Cancun, Las Terrenas is still a fishing village, where foreigners and friendly locals mingle in everyday life. This melting pot of local and foreign influences is maybe best exemplified by the quality and creativity of Las Terrenas restaurants, which fuse French haute c...uisine, traditional local recipes and fresh sea food ingredients. Make sure you enjoy some of the excellent restaurants in the Fisherman’s village (‘Pueblo de Los Pescadores’) about 1 mile away, on the sea front, some with French chefs. Not only will Las Terrenas offer you a comprehensive range of water sport activities, it also stands out as one of the last spots of unspoiled natural beauty in the Caribbean.
TOGETHER TIME YET PRIVATE SPACES

Left on 11/26/2013 for a stay in August 2013 | American Traveler
My family and I spent a marvelous week at this elegant property and have not stopped raving about our stay to family and friends.
The penthouse itself is spacious and well equipped with 4 sliding doors that look out over the pool, beach and out into the sea. The cook, recommended by the manager, prepared a scrumptious lunch, which we enjoyed each day on one of the two terraces. We primarily used our rented quad to ride into town for shopping, and to go out to dinner on several days.My in-law's, who live in the DR, came up for a few days and we used their car to get around when we were going out with a larger group. We found several restaurants we enjoyed, nearby.
There were plenty of things to do in and around town, including scuba diving, kayaking, day trips to Limon or simply walking along the beach.
We are already planning to return next year and to extend our stay to 2 weeks.
