“A dream place hanging between sky and sea, in a cloud of greenery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2009

Available as a vacation home rental, the place includes two villas that are offered either separately or together, to groups from couple to larger family, with a total capacity near 30 guests. It is situated in Tabinay Munti, 1km to the SSE of Puerto Galera town center, atop a 30m high promontory that dominates Varadero Bay. The occasional noise from the highway (200m away through dense vegetation) is faint and there are no immediate neighbors.
 
On arrival one is amazed by the charm and beauty of the bamboos and beautiful trees that surround the villas and mingle down toward the sea, which is seen through them on nearly 3 of the 4 quadrants. Each villa has its own pool and terrace with a sensational view. Local fishermen can often be observed pulling their nets. The sea breeze is quite constant throughout the day and maintains an agreeable temperature.
 
The accommodation is comfortable. In each bedroom there is a shower and toilet, sufficient space and simple but efficient shelving. The villas' sober and elegant style has the benefit of enhancing the natural beauty and vegetal lushness of the place. The rental is provided with the services of the staff and cook. They are very helpful and amicable. You talk to Emilda about what you'd like to eat and give her money for the market. You may go shopping with her but it's not necessary. She brings back the bills and she cooks according to your own taste and preferences. We found it very convenient and economical.
 
Because of its privileged features and capacity, my wife and I chose Punta del Este as the place of our 16-day family reunion and vacation . We were more than satisfied. We could have a feast. Everybody was thrilled by the place and enjoyed the stay. We all liked the friendly welcome, the magical atmosphere, the good cooking, the pleasant amenities. The quiet beach and the swimming pool were a big success. Many also enjoyed snorkeling over Puerto Galera's famous coral reefs. We had nice excursions: Tamaraw Falls, Tukuran Farm, White Beach, Baclayan trekking). The caretaker was keen on organizing it for us.
 
I recommend this place to nature and quietness lovers, yogis, divers, trekkers, as well as to families, small associations and businesses for their get-togethers. Don't hesitate to contact me. I'll give you more information and a link to great photos of my travel to Punta del Este and Puerto Galera.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Our concept is that of self catered houses where we try our best for our villas to become your home for the duration of your stay. All is provided for you to enjoy a relaxing holiday. Our cook will be at your disposal to go to the market and buy whatever you may wish to have for your meals that she will cook and serve for you. Transfer from airport to the villas is available. An average reference rate of usdlrs 45 per night per person is a good guiding indication for you to apraise the cost of staying at our facilities. Since our concept involves mostly families or multi-guests occupancy it is necessary and wise to ask us for a quotation each time you plan to stay at Punta Del Este where we would hope to offer you the best possible value for money . ... more   less
