“Spectacular Place!!! Excellent Service!!! Wonderful Experience!!!”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

We stayed at Rancho Las Guazaras' Villa Cereza And had THE BEST TIME EVER. We had just come from Punta Cana & paid top money to stay at a luxury resort where the customer service was NO where near as great as in this ranch. The Ranch has stunning views, it's a one of a kind place to stay and connect with nature, very peaceful yet you can still party if you wanted to. The ranch was very clean, fully equipped with anything you need in the kitchen, dvd player, hot water, etc. Fausto (the property manager) & all the staff are very friendly & provide top of the line customer service. They also provide you with anything you need at any time of the day or night, all you have to do is call Fausto & he'll personally take care of your needs. The person that cooks is awesome! For less than 2000 pesos (about $50 USD) we had a huge Sancocho for 12 people with lots of meat & vegetarian food on the side for my mom, brother & his wife. It was soooo much food that we all ate twice & still had leftovers (Great deal, very tasty & reasonable).
Many activities to do & most would even come & pick you up at the ranch at no additional cost. We loved it so much that we are already booking 1 week for next october to stay at Villa Palmera.
I would recommend this place to anyone who simply loves to enjoy life, nature & good service.

We made a family reunion out of our trip to the Dominican Republic and stay at Rancho Las Guazaras during Easter Week in March. It was a group of 34 staying at both Villa Palmera and Villa Perez. The views were unbelievable and the stay was incredible. My family stayed for four nights and three days. The staff was unbelievably accommodating, every step of the way they made an effort to ensure that everything was working out with our group. They were always available to assist us with what ever we needed, from ice, refreshments to fire wood for the fireplace on one of the chilly nights. They really gave us the resort treatment while we were able to enjoy the privacy of the villas.
Villa Perez really offers a private experience in comparison to the other villas. It has its own party area, recreational room and private pools. This is were our family had the buffet style breakfast, lunch and dinner on a daily basis, which was staged by the Guazaras staff. Prior to booking the trip they provided a diverse array of selections for local food, and during our stay the food did not disappoint. The party room from the Villa Perez really lends it self for a true celebration. With an incredible background of the Jarabacoa hills, our family was able to enjoy a day of celebration with a live music band.
In conclusion,I couldn't have chosen a better place to gather my loved ones and enjoy a weekend of joy, and fun. On behalf of my family and I, we would like to thank all Members of the Guazaras staff. From Mr. Agustin whom was the person which helped me reserve here in the States to the Dominican staff Fausto, Dilenia, and Frendy. Thank you all and hope to see you soon.

We chose to go the Dominican Republic for our company-family trip in December'12. Rancho Laz Guazaras was the best choice we made. We where a group of 21 persons so we had two Villas, Villa Cafe and Villa Palmera, they where excellent, very spacious and comfortable, the breakfast and dinner where delicious.On behalf of BWM-group I want to thank you once again for the service, we will be back soon!

We spent a couple of nights here while we explored the mountains around Jarabacoa and Constanza in mid-April. We were there mid-week during the slow season, so we got a good rate and had the place mostly to ourselves. The majority of the guests are wealthier Dominicans from Santo Domingo that come up on the weekends or during the summer. I believe that the impression is that it is cold there at other times, but being that we are from Wisconsin, the weather seemed just right.
We were in the smallest unit, Villa Cereza, which allowed lots of room for our family of five to spread out. The villa was fairly new, in excellent condition, and had everything you needed. Wished we could have spent a couple more days here. The grounds, pools, and views were just as you see in the glamour shots - fabulous. Quiet and secluded. This place was so nice it was hard to get ourselves to leave for day trips to waterfalls, etc. Whether used as a base for exploring the region or kicking back and relaxing; this is an ideal lodging choice.
The prices shown online are the standard rates, if you are coming during an off-season, you should definitely inquire about lower rates.

We went to Rancho Las Guazaras to celebrate Thansgiving with my family and my husband family too. We rent Villa Perez amazing and big house two private swiming pools for this villa, two kitchen, 5 dorms. kids playground, We have a wonderful thanksgiving there. The employees are very nice, very clean areas. also its have another villas in the complex it depends on your group size the other 4 or 5 villas share a very nice swimming pool if you visit there web site all that you see there its real. I was a little bit worry because its was my first time in jarabacoa and a visit their web site and the property looks to good to be true but when we get there it was exactly as in the pictures. The only thing i have to mention is that villa perez balconies arent very safe for little kids and one of the bed rooms in the first floor smell a lot of humidity.

It really is a beautifull place in the area. With the added secluded espace only for the villas of the group, that wich grant you with easy access, parking and one great option for big family groups who will need several villas together.

It was clean and well keept

My only issue was that: there is no phone signal coverage and no internet (for people like me who needs to be mandatory available and on internet all the time, it was big issue).
Only the master bedroom has an In-suite bathroom, that was a problem in our group.
And even as the villa has plenty of backyard options for kid (lots of swings and pools), the villa itself was not kids friendly safe. so we wouldn recomend it for a family with toddlers. (bigger kids over 7 y.o) is OK.
