“A Most Memorable Vacation Ever”
Reviewed 18 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Our family recently spent an unforgettable week at Sunrise Villa! There were 15 of us including 4 of our children, 3 of their spouses, and 6 grandchildren ages 9 to 17 years. Upon
arrival, Chris and Sandy warmly greeted and welcomed us. I cannot say enough about the wonderful and awesome staff who work at Sunrise Villa; They are the most warm and
friendly people who are always readily available and attentive to whatever the need may be at
at the moment, yet non intrusive. The staff definitely goes above and beyond. Ramon, the bartender would come in every afternoon to mix up fresh piña coladas, passion fruit drinks, and any other requested drink, as well as special non alcoholic drink treats for the kids. We were also appreciative of Ramon who was always looking out for the safety of all of us, especially at Laguna DuDu which is a freshwater sinkhole a short distance from the villa. We are thankful to Ramon for walking with all the gals into Cabrera for one final shopping spree, and then providing unique transportation for our return trip back to Sunrise Villa! Frank, the chef, prepared a variety of unbelievable and most delicious meals which were cooked to perfection. Fresh juices, fruits, vegetables, fish, lobster, tasty meat dishes with sauces, and Dominican dishes which we all enjoyed! The 'anniversary' dinner of fresh lobster and beef fillets will long be remembered as the best anyone could ever eat; Also, the tasty decorative cake which Ramon had ordered from the bakery. Thanks to all the staff who assisted in making it a memorable evening for all. Rosa, the masseuse, gave me two of the most wonderful and relaxing massages, one of which I had at the cliffside pergola where it overlooks the ocean and you can listen to the sounds of the surf as it crashes against the beach! Sandy, the house manager who 'wears many hats' did a most thorough pedicure. Viviana, Rosa, and Fior all do a wonderful job in maintaining and keeping the rooms and surrounding areas impeccably clean as well as Papito and Negron who keep the grounds, pool area, and floral landscaping looking continually beautiful. When our air conditioner stopped working, Francisco, who is in charge of maintenance solved the problem immediately. The gals had a lot of fun dancing with Yonathon (who also takes care of maintenance) and Papito at the Meringue band bonfire beach party. All of the grandchildren found an endless number of things to keep them occupied at Sunrise, especially the never ending jumps into the pool and hot tub as well as playing pool, ping pong, and chess. Almost everyone participated in searching for unique worn colored glass, and sea treasures down at the beach. Some of the kids had fun creating a hermit crab habitat in which they enjoyed watching the activities of the hermies before having to let them go when we were ready to leave! Babe, the Villa's 'protector dog' became a great friend to all of us and we were deeply saddened when we had to say goodbye! We were delighted to having spent a week in 'paradise' and feel blessed to having met all the wonderful people who work at Sunrise Villa.

“Fantastic Villa Vacation!”
Reviewed 15 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We just returned from a wonderful, relaxing week at the Sunrise Villa. This is an amazing place for a vacation! The property is immaculately maintained and the views are spectacular. We were fed three full meals per day, plus a “happy hour” snack, all prepared by their wonderful chef, Frank. The food was plentiful and delicious (particularly the seafood). The staff was incredibly friendly and attentive. One of their most notable qualities was their ability to proactively anticipate the needs of their guests. The staff took notice of our likes, dislikes, patterns of activities and would try to cater to those preferences. If there’s anything you wanted, they would do their best to get it for you. The property manager, Chris, stopped by every day to check on us and see if there was anything we needed. He was very receptive and willing to help us in any way he could. We’ve rented vacation villas before, but none quite this lovely and inclusive. This is definitely a place we would return.

“Fabulous Vacation Spot”
Reviewed 16 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We rent a villa for the 13 members of my family every year. This year we decided on Sunrise Villa. The location is awesome with a well groomed beach below. The layout of the villa is well thought out. The staff is very good from Ramon the bartender to the cooks, landscapers and servers. The food is excellent and can be tweaked at your suggestion.

This is the best villa we've ever rented. The whole experience is dialed-in as the ownership is present daily in the management of the villa.

If you are looking for a great tropical beach experience for the whole group or family look no further than Sunrise Villa. Enjoy!

“You won't want to vacation anywhere else!”
Reviewed 27 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Sunrise Villa is amazing! The layout of the Villa is perfect. The rooms and separate little villas are clean, comfortable and beautiful. The staff is superb!! They are kind & accommodating. The food is fresh, healthy, local and amazing. The bar and bartender, Ramon, are perfect! We enjoyed fresh pina coladas and fresh guacamole at 5pm every day! The pool and hot tub are relaxing and clean and there is ample space to sit in the sun or the shade around the pool. The view is breath-taking and the beach is great for walking and finding sea treasures. If you have any need, they will take care of it. Everything is thought of and you are treated like a celebrity! From in-house mani/peids and cliff-side massages (simply a MUST) to beach picnics and bonfires with music and quiet evenings on your private patio... it's your vacation and you can do what you want! Perfect for relaxing and getting away from the hustle and bustle of life. You must experience Sunrise Villa! We had 5 couples in our group and it was perfect. You could easily have many more people; however, 5-7 couples (or less) is what I would recommend. There isn't a lot for young children to do, so I wouldn't necessarily recommend this as a family destination. There is a small town close by (Cabrera) but there isn't much there. There are no big resorts or big tourist attractions anywhere near the Villa. Which makes it really nice (no other tourists anywhere!); however, a little tricky to get to. From Santo Domingo airport - plan on a two or two and a half hour cab ride! The swimming right in front of the Villa isn't very good. There is a lot of coral and sea urchins. Plus, there can be an undertow. However, there are some excursions (horseback riding, snorkeling, kayaking, etc.) that the Villa will arrange for you if you desire. We ventured to Laguna Dudu, which is a freshwater sinkhole near the Villa - definitely worth checking out. We went to La Playa Grande one day. It is a beautiful beach with great swimming and surfing! My husband and I took an hour cab ride (arranged by Villa) to Caberete (an international kite-surfing destination) so he could kite-surf. Definitely something to check out. We enjoyed some Presidentes (Dominican beer) and fresh fish tacos on the beach at the Kite Club. It was a lot of fun to watch over 75 kite surfers zooming across the ocean! Once you visit the Villa - you won't want to vacation anywhere else!
