I stayed in this studio apartment in October and thouroughly enjoyed my stay. The owner was easy to work with and the property managers are prompt and friendly.
The studio is fully furnished and the kitchen has full equipment...all electronis, air conditioning, etc work well.
You will enjoy the location of this studio...close to everything and near the beach.
All in all a very good experience...I told a friend about this place and he has booked for a week.
Thanks, Rafeek, Eugenia and Verna! Read more

We booked our stay with not knowing a whole lot about the area and we were extremely happy with the apartment and the location!!! The ocean was closer than we expected (maybe a 5 min. walk or less!) There was a cool bar, a market, and a bakery with wi-fi access just down the stairs and across the common area. Awesome place to stay! We dont ever expect a lot from our room when we travel because we try to book inexpensive places but this place was great!
"Our vacation was so lovely, relaxing and refreshing."

From the moment we arrived, I knew this was going to be a lovely, much need "time out." Everything was as it was presented, and more!
We became oriented to the community very quickly and always felt safe, even if some things were a different from the USa. Bur really, isn't that part of why one travels? To experience cultural differences as similarities.
Everyone we crossed paths with seemed to be enjoying themselves. What's not to enjoy? We had lovely weather. The air and water were perfect temperature.
We lacked for nothing and this was a very economical vacation. The biggest decision we had to make every day after our five minute walk to the beach was, "Should we go to the left, or the right today?"
I spent a few mornings relaxing and swimming in the very clean pool in the El Dorado Complex. Everything we needed was right there: groceries, wi/fi cafe/bakery, restaurants, pharmacy, money exchange and numerous other stores and services were available.
There were several local beach front restaurants and bars that offered plenty of comfy lounge chairs and shade, as well as roped off areas to swim. We never felt pressured to continually buy food or beverages, but the staff was always very accommodating and greeted us with sincere gratitude upon our arrival.
The tropical climate suited us very well. I could go on and on, but well...you should just go and experience this delightful spot yourself!
The most difficult part of the trip was making the decision to actually get on the airplane to return home. **sigh**

From the moment we arrived at the airport, the driver was waiting for us. He was kind and efficient (as we were late and in a hurry because of our own planning). Eugenie was ready for our arrival and gave us a quick tour and was very pleasant and funny. The room was very clean with lots of clean linens and towels. Lots of amenities within the complex including a bakery, pharmacy, restaurant and very well kept pools. The beach was no more than 5 minutes away and was very well maintained also. The entire experience was enjoyable from start to finish. My friend and I will absolutely be returning to this same studio the next time we return to punta cana - within the next few months!

We thoroughly enjoyed our 9 day stay at the Eldorado condo near Bavaro Beach. The owner's contact person is courteous and helpful and the apartment is exactly as pictured on the Homeaway website, comfortable,compact, clean and safe. We spent most of our time outdoors on the spacious balcony. The pool is nice and we usually had it to ourselves. There is a little supermarket with lots of European imported products as well as a fine selection of fresh meat and cheeses. There are several restaurants within walking distance, everything from seafood to middle-eastern fare. Our favourite spot was the bakery downstairs from the apartment which sells lovely pastries, ready-made sandwiches and delicious coffee and espresso. The patio has wifi so you can join both locals and ex pats and travellers skyping loved ones back home in a multitude of languages. The beach is only a few minutes away and we found a public beach
between resorts where we slung our hammock between 2 palm trees. There are a few beach chairs but it's first come first served so better get there before lunch. If you're not into the all-inclusive experience and don't mind being woken by a rooster in the early morning (we loved it!) then this is the place for you!
