“Great condo. Terrible diarrhea from the local fish shack.”

The condo was nice. More space than we needed, lots of towels, fully equipped kitchen. It was a one minute walk to the pool and another minute to the beach. I recommend walking another 5 minutes north to get to the Sirenes beach. Up there they regularly clear the algae away and the beach was less rocky. We tried entering the ocean right by Las Dunas and it was very hard to get past the rocks and coral debris.

Rafi and Marcia were extremely accommodating all the way through. They were quick to respond to emails. Rafi picked us up at the airport. (Recommended, since otherwise you'll be swarmed by many local cab companies of unknown repute.) He took us to the grocery store and waited patiently while we shopped. During our stay, they helped us with various local arrangements. Rafi took us back to the airport at the end.

The single problem with the arrangement was their recommendation of a restaurant, Seafood Paradise, a 10 minute walk south along the beach. DO NOT EAT AT SEAFOOD PARADISE. We went there and enjoyed the local, open-air, atmosphere and liked the attention from multiple stray kittens and dogs. We ordered one small fish, 20 shrimp, 2 empanadas, and rice and beans. The food was prepared quickly and smelled and tasted good. But within 12 hours I developed horrible diarrhea. Seafood Paradise was undoubtedly the cause since everything else we had consumed was pre-packaged, low-risk food from the grocery store and we had been careful not to drink any local water. My wife got the same illness shortly after. The traveller's diarrhea has lasted almost a week and casts a sad shadow on my DR experience. Wish I had stuck to resort restaurants or fast food.

“Fine Apartment and Premises, Beautiful Beach, Few People & A Great Place to Relax”
Reviewed 16 April 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We had a wonderful time. We stayed 6 nights at Las Dunas Resort, at Uvero Alto, with our 2 teenage daughters. The complex is quite new and has basically a private beach. Though the entrance is through an abandoned condo there is good security. The apartment was very confortable, spacious and had a nice decoration and spectacular beach view. There were very few people in the resort at the time, so the beach and pool seemed to be all for ourselves and the place was very quiet. We could rest and sleep an uninterrupted nap and also a restful night without anything or anyone bothering us. The all-inclusive resorts in the area are sufficiently away as not to interfere. Perfect for a peaceful getaway.
To buy food you have to travel to Bavaro to a good supermarket, which is why we rented a car, which we also used to visit other beaches. If you like you can hire there in the condo help to cook a typical Dominican dish and buy the necessary ingredients. The overall service from the staff was good and very friendly.
All in all we throughly recommend staying at Las Dunas if you want to avoid the crowd and noisier environment of the more developed Punta Cana.

“Absolutely Beautiful!!!!”

Everyone was happy to help unload the luggage and groceries.The view from the patio took our breath away! The condo itself was very nice. Plenty of room for everyone and we even had a 2 year old. The pool was always sparkling. The beach was well taken care with chairs that were perfect for napping! This place was very quiet and you felt like you had it all to yourself. Just a walk down the beach to eat Fresh seafood. We actually think we saw them fishing! The shops on the beach were little but if you really just want to go to relax I say this is the place! No fighting for a lawn chair here! We have shown pics to friends and they want to know info all about this beautiful place!

The best thing about this place was the people who managed it. Rafael and Marcia were excellent, and couldn't have been more friendly and helpful.
The second best thing was the beach and the pool. Both are private and gorgeous.
The things we didn't like about the place was that it was too far of a drive yo get anywhere. You're pretty isolated there and it's a good half hr to the closest restaurant.
The condo is newer and updated but the washer and dryer didn't work, there was no dining table so we couldn't play games or cards. No shower curtains, so had to mop up the floor after each use. They need new bed pillows, as theirs are thin and lumpy. Internet inside the unit was hit or miss, however you could usually get it at the pool.
Everyone there is friendly and courteous, and let me repeat, Rafael and Marcia went above and beyond to help with anything we needed, even offering to wash our clothes for us. The owner should be very grateful to have them as managers and I hope he pays them well, as they are worth a goldmine.
