This villa is perfect for large or small groups. I stayed here with a couple for friends and family from July 10-July 14 and it was not long enough we can not wait to come back. I also had my wedding here which I must say was beyond my wildest dreams.
I can not say enough good things about the wedding coordinator, the staff, the owners everything. The staff is with you until I believe it was 11 or 10 pm. This is by far the best service any of us have ever received on any vacation. Everything is a la carte, fresh and you create your menu! This place is impeccable, and you have a breath taking view from every angle.

We were all speechless and will definitely be back.


Highly recommend this place!

“Fabulous Vacation/Honeymoon Villa”
Reviewed September 26, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

My wife and I spent a fabulous week at the Villa to celebrate her birthday and to enjoy a well-deserved honeymoon we never took after our marriage. I was looking for a place that offered exclusivity and peacefulness. The Villa is everything it is advertised to be, beautiful, peaceful, and relaxing. As others have also mentioned on their reviews, the pictures do not do the Villa justice. The Villa is much more beautiful in person. The best part of the Villa is the staff, management, and owners. From day one of booking the Villa, they did everything within their power to ensure our requests were met and that we were satisfied and happy. We requested activities not listed on their brochure and they fulfilled it, so do not hesitate to ask for whatever you want. We want to thank Jason, Samantha, Felix, Jay, Rupert, Marrari, and Rodolpho for all they did. Our best memories will be of them. Samantha was the concierge who made sure our stay was beyond expectations. Felix, Jay, Rupert, and Marrari were our hosts who ensured all of our needs were taken care of. Rodolpho was the chef who (I swear) can easily work in the finest restaurants anywhere. Each meal was divine.

I easily give the Villa a 5-star rating, but there are some suggestions. The game tables were in need of upkeep. There were no ping pong balls to play ping pong. The foosball table had people missing on it. The shuffleboard table had sticky spots on it and was hard to slide the shuffles around on it. The pool table had only one cue stick that was useable. I did not detract from my rating for these things because after all who goes to the DR to play pool, ping pong, foosball, or shuffleboard. Another minor upkeep issue is the pool has a couple of spots where the pool lining broke away exposing the concrete underneath. After some time in the pool, this would hurt the feet if scraped against it. Again, very minimal in nature and not detracting of the overall beauty and fun of the Villa.

If I had to say what was the least favorite part of the Villa, it is that it is located so far away from major attractions and activities. We went parasailing and swimming with the dolphins at Ocean World. Both of these required long taxi rides (2 hours) into Puerto Plata. Even a quick trip to a nearby beach like Playa Grande or Playa Diamonte requires a taxi ride. But if you know this going in, you can plan accordingly. Also, there is plenty to do in and around the Villa or around Cabrera. Also, there is a HUGE resort that is under construction at Playa Grande that is slated to open in 2016. I'm sure that when construction is completed it will bring some of those activities to the Cabrera area.

If you're thinking of staying here, I highly recommend it. Everyone we encountered, both within the Villa and within the DR, was so friendly and courteous. The DR country and its people are so beautiful.

Management Response
Sep 25, 2013
Thank you very much for your favorable review for our luxury vacation villa. We appreciate our guests feedback and constantly use it to help improve our services. Likely this is why we consistently receive 5 star reviews from virtually all of our guests.

I checked with Samantha and the villa staff regarding your concerns about the games tables. I am sorry you did not have the opportunity to mention your concerns about these items while you were in residence. We have hundreds (literally) of ping pong balls, ice (wax) for the shuffleboard and can repair any broken pool cue in less than 10 minutes with supplies from our maintenance staff. All of the staff are here at the villa to help address any concerns or problems so your vacation is as magical and smooth as can be.

Thank you again for sharing your special honeymoon with us at Villa Castellamonte. I'll make sure the staff know of your appreciation as well.

From the moment we booked this trip, our anticipation built with excitement & wondered how could all these reviews & pix possibly be real. This was the BEST time that all 12 of us have ever enjoyed together as a family!! We all had our own space & quite quickly made the Villa OUR home. The villa was beautiful beyond mere pictures & the ambiance of the gardens & the crashing sounds of the surf made for a very relaxing time. I was even able to read 1 & 1/2 books while there. Our chef, Felix, Jei & the entire staff catered to all of our needs & wants. Many thanks to all of them. The Dominican life will be a part of our life always. Our life was blessed. Many thanks to Jason & Michelle for sharing their lovely home w/us. We will be back! Adios y'all!!

Sixteen of us spent 8 luxurious days at this slice of heaven. The house is beautifully furnished, the grounds impeccably manicured and maintained, and the views are spectacular. What made our stay feel like heaven on earth, however, was the staff's attentiveness and how graciously they treated us. Felix, the head steward, was simply awesome, as were Ruperto, Jay, and Mirari who helped Felix attend to our every need. We were eight adults and eight children so Felix and his assistants were busy making a myriad of refreshments throughout the day……and everything was prepared just as we liked it.

The food was also very good and there was a nice variety of meals. We stayed eight days and not one meal was a repeat from a previous day. They cooked everything to our taste and even welcomed us into the kitchen one evening as one of our friends asked to cook his famous Indian chicken for us.

I remember fondly our trip to Villa Castellamonte. What I will remember the most is Felix's reply after I would thank him for something….”seimpre”…always…

“EPIC...........!!!!!”
Reviewed May 27, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

A group of 8 friends stayed at Villa Castellamonte for a one night on May 24th, 2013. The villa is more stunning in real life than in pictures. Staff was amazing, and the service was 6 star. Everything you need is there. Just show up and have a great time. The staff literally had a drink ready and waiting before you finished your last. We enjoyed an excellent steak dinner with wine and after dinner cocktails. Lots to do during our stay including outdoor pool table, ping pong, poker table, shuffle board, volleyball in the pool, hot tub.....and the list goes on. We had a chance to have a drink with the owner and learn about the development of the villa and the story behind the works of art on the ceilings and rooms throughout the villa. (Simply breathtaking) Although the villa is more than 15,000 square feet, it feels like a cozy home and not a hotel.
When you book Villa Castellamonte, you will have an Epic time and you won't be disappointed.
