The Owners Vincenzo and Gilda were great. They meet you at the reception desk and you can find them all day on the grounds helping and just talking with their guest. That is no easy feat since it is a sort of cabana style resort with lots of gardens and plenty of room. My wife and I both agree one...

Gilda had never cooked a turkey before. But she was willing to give it a try. She found 2 live birds a day before. She stuffed them, baked them and served them to our group of 14. But she said "I cooked them, but I Don't carve them." So I stepped up and did the honor. They were wild birds,...

We annually visit the DR for 2 weeks to visit projects created by our non-profit organization. For the past 8 years we have been pulled back like a magnet to the wonderful cabanas of the Costa La Ballenas for 2-3 days on a peaceful beach before returning to the States. We have remained loyal to the resort over the years...

A peaceful resort with a beautiful garden and great location right next to the beach Playa Bonita. The location is great and you can have your privacy. Just stroll down the beach line and pick your favorite spot. If you want to try some surf, you have great waves for beginners just out of the resort. The spot usually works...

Wonderful accommodations. Location, cleanliness and management top notch. The restaurant is not to be missed. An ocean view casita will provide the sounds of the surf to sleep by although all rooms looked to be pleasantly placed.

Its great that now Playa Bonita has an affordable resort for families (only one with with a swimming pool for kids for the days-season when there are more waves ) , a large area with a billiard table and space to share in the fresh shadow. The property is probably the largest r in the beach line of playa Bonita....
