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.
