“A slice of tropical heaven, a piece of paradise!”
Reviewed July 31, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We have stayed at Mexican, Jamaican, and Costa Rican villas that were very nice, but Sunrise Villa tops them all. Where do I began, first Chris, the House Manager answered every question I had and made suggestions to me when I reached out to him via email prior to our arrival. I’m a little anal, but he was very gracious and patiently replied and answered each question. Chris is extremely knowledgeable about any and all things Dominican Republic!

Secondly, the Bali style bungalows and grounds were ideal. Everyone had their own little private nook and space for alone time to enjoy the scenery, yet the main house that houses the large outdoor covered terrace beside the Manna bar was where the group gathered together when we were not eating. The outdoor terrace overlooks the hot tub and pool, which makes it an outdoor great room where everybody can see and talk to each other, but be in different areas.

Thirdly, the service was great and the food was excellent and very plentiful. We were served lots of fresh seafood, fruits, and vegetables daily. Tanya, also a House Manager made sure everything was taken care of and that we had whatever we needed. The masseuse was excellent and did a great job. The grounds keepers were meticulous and on the job working daily shortly after sunrise. But, the person we all agreed was our favorite staff person was without a doubt Ramon. He had the most direct interaction with us; besides mixing the drinks, he played pool with the guys at night, cleaned up after us, explained in Spanish to the staff what we wanted and needed when they did not understand what we were asking. He hosted our bonfire and showed us how to toast our marshmallows without burning ourselves. But, the thing the makes Ramon the most special is he learned all our names! He even remembered our drink choices, and anticipated what we needed before we asked!

The other thing that makes Sunrise Villa so unique are the additional options that are included in the price. We were given lunch on Playa Grande beach. They provided transportation, and the local restaurants provided us with a hot lunch. We were able to swim and buy souvenirs from the locals selling jewelry, art, and statues. Additionally, you are provided dinner at Hotel Catalina. The restaurant was quaint and intimate with views of the mountains and ocean from an outdoor terrace. The food was good and we were allowed to order anything on the menu. Three courses were provided, appetizer, entrée, and dessert.

While visiting Sunrise Villa please take the horseback riding tour at Rancho Paraiso. My comments about the ranch will be under sightseeing. Yet again, Sunrise Villa goes out of their way to accommodate their guests. We took the 3-hour tour and because we would be gone during lunch they made lunch, packed a cooler with water, soda and beer, and a bag of beach towels.
We only have two small criticisms, the desserts were not great. The first night we had homemade chocolate cake that was very good. The next day we had a Carmel style pudding cake that is native to the DR, but our group did not like it, and another night we had store bought cheesecake that was not special. The other small issue we had was with the two cats that were always around. Two people in our group are allergic to cats, which was a problem mainly around meal times. That was primarily when they came around.

To close, Sunrise Villa gets 6 out of 5 stars from our group for, their service, Bali style design, immaculate grounds, lush tropical exterior, food, all the included options, but most importantly their staff!

“Weekend Gateaway for a Wedding”
Reviewed November 30, 2011 for a stay in May 2011

A group of us stayed at this villa for a wedding and we had a good time.

Pros - The rooms and ocean views were beautiful. The bed was very comfortable. The food that they prepared were very good. The massages were cheap and amazing. The price to go to the lagoons were very reasonable if a group of 4+ are going.

Cons - First, the first night that I arrived, housekeeping left the door to the outdoor shower open and it was raining HARD for about an hour. When I went to my room, the room was infested with bugs and no staff were around to help that I had to sleep in my friend's room. Secondly, there were not variety of alcohol at the bar to choose from. Furthermore, the shower head in the tub was broken and the water temperature wasn't consistent, either very hot or very cold. Lastly, there are no keys to the rooms but if you all trust each other, your belongings will be fine.

Management Response

I am sorry to say this group is the only one in our 10 year history that has been banned from returning. On their departure, the staff formally requested I not allow them back in for reasons too numerous to mention. This made for an ironic moment when, a very short time later, this group tried to re-book with us for a return trip!

This particular review writer was the typical "guest from hell"
