“Wonderfull place to relax and perfect location”

My boyfriend and I (both age 21) spent 4 nights in the appartement "Rosa" and enjoyed our vacation there very much! The hosts Don and Diana were very welcoming and made us feel comfortable right away. They gave very good advice on how to get around and were always on site to help us. They have a big dog named Bingo, he's cute and calm. The staff was very friendly and helpful as well. We loved the appartement and all the lovely details in this whole place. A welcoming pastry in the fridge was a nice surprise.
The location does really look like in the picutures. We enjoyed the infinity pool a lot, especially at night when you can see the stars, since there's not much light pollution.
It's easy to get around from Monte Placido, you can catch a motoconcho or guagua right down the hill. It's only 20 min to the city of Las Terrenas and 2-3 hours to the airport of Santo Domingo. We rented Dons' motorcycle for 2 days to get to Playa Rincon, Playa Moron, Samana and the waterfall El Limon. Make sure you see Playa Moron, we liked it the most.
All together we enjoyed this beautiful place very much and recomend it. We're looking forward to coming back!

“Beautiful mountain top retreat”

My wife and I had a fantastic stay with our hosts Don and Diana. Their beautiful, peaceful apartments are ideal for a couple, family, friends, or a retreat. Their staff are friendly, helpful, and thoughtful, keeping the apartments spotless and comfortable.

We enjoyed the easy access to the beach, Las Terranas, and the countryside. Diana has prepared a very helpful guide to local and nearby restaurants, sights, attractions, and amenities—and Don can give you the inside scoop on local sailing and his personal favorite places to eat. We recommend having a massage, which Diana will organize, and a 3 hour hike into the backcountry behind Monte Placido.

“Our Stay at Monte Placido Rosa Property”

My husband and I really enjoyed our first trip to Monte Placido.

From reading other reviews, we were prepared for the steep drive up
from the main road, and after a couple of trips back and forth into
Las Terrenas my husband became quite adept.

We stayed at 'Rosa' a very nice efficiency apartment exactly as advertised!
The wonderful gardens and accommodations exceeded our expectations.

Our hosts were very welcoming, the infinity pool marvellous, the views
spectacular! Altogether a great visit and we are looking forward
to returning.
