When we arrived at the condo we found a platter of fruit and milk and coffee. A lovely gesture. We were very impressed with the size of the condo. It was very clean and spacious. We stayed in the penthouse which had lovely views of the ocean. We stayed for the month of feb. Kitchen was equipped with most of the essentials one would need to do some cooking. We soon found out that there were not many restaurants in the area. Took us 45 mins to an hour to walk along the beach to the town of Cabarete. We found the place to be some what isolated. There were too many hotels and restaurants closed in the immediate are that made Serenity feels so isolated. This place was not for us. We much preferred to be around people. The beach is very isolated in front of the condo.
OUr first three weeks were enjoyable because we had a few friends visit. We rented a car and did some driving to the restaurants and shopping for groceries. The pool area was enjoyable all be it small. Matilda and Benny were very helpful and a joy to be around.
Our last week was a bit upsetting because we had a break & enter on the ground floor and unfortunately one of the guests got shot. An unfortunate incident that shook me up for the rest of the week. I was disappointed that security was not 24hrs like it was advertised.
However, security did get beefed up after the incident but I was locked and bolted in the condo as soon as it got dark. I couldn't wait to leave. This has not put me off going back to Cabarete. Our next visit will be in the town of Cabarete amoungst many hotels with good security, restaurants in walking distance and lots of people around.
