El Flamboyan was great, just a 5min walk to the beach! We stayed a whole month & the price was very reasonable. The 2 bedroom apartment was clean & had everything we needed to cook in & feel at home. There are only 5 apts, the owners are on sight & live in 1. Everyone there was mature, easygoing, & it was a quiet place with a gorgeous peaceful garden full of birds. The owners Wilma & Nico were warm & welcoming, like family. They took us on a few excursions that we would of never found in a tour book that were great!! In our month there, we shared in 3 pot luck communal dinners in the lovely outdoor dining area. We felt completely safe & there was an area to park our car behind a locked gate. The location was just a few kilometers from the busy boisterous village which was great, it was a peaceful place & the best we found in the whole of DR!!

Room tip: All rooms have a balcony or a veranda & face the pool & beautiful gardens. There are bananas & fresh herbs growing plentifully on the grounds we were able to help ourselves to.

It's sometimes the smaller places that give the more value, however El Flamboyan is more than the excellent example. Our first stay at this place has been so great, that we know for sure we will be back for several visits in the near future.

Opposite to most of the Dominican places we've always been, the owners, a lovely Dutch family, have lots and lots of attention for their beautiful place. Where commonly one can expects a lack of that little extra in Dominican hotels where someting is always broken, fortunately we found this place, El Flamboyan that does have that extra attention of detail, maintenance and cleanliness. The warm welcome from the Dutch family, which are very flexible and passionate to make sure you have a great time, plus the extraordinary big and clean appartements, swimmingpool, jacuzzi, billard, barbeque, beautiful garden, and music outside at your liking, will give you that more value. Needless to go anywhere, sit back and relax at the place, comfortable also during an occasional rain shower...

It's also a perfect jump-off point for Playa Bonita and the beautifull surroundings of the Samana region. As kite-surfer myself, we are visiting Punta Popy and El Portillo very often, which are a must with tranquil laidback beaches opposite to Cabarete. In las Terrenas you will find your own private mellow beach for sunbathing, kitesurfing, snorkling, while our little kids are swimming in the bay well protected from big swells by the reefs.

Although we travel as family by car, El Flamboyan is also a good stay for backpackers and people traveling solo. The owners Nico and Wilma will be great company during your stay. They speak about 5 languages and can bring you up to speed on beautiful inside details of the Dominican Republic. There are various tours to do, but Nico and Wilma can also help you along on more private excursions, perhaps saving on your budget. Also worth mentioning, the appartement big kitchens make it a fine place to cook own diners and keeping the budget low if preferred.

Thank you so much Nico and Wilma. Muchas gracias por todo, nos vemos!

Room tip: There is a private cabaña near the pool and the bigger appartment on ground level is worth the try, nonetheless all the rooms are excellent in size. Just don't hesitate to ask the friendly Dutch family owners and they would arrange almost anything for you :-)

We travelled to Las Terrenas on the Labor Day long weekend with no real plans set in place. Las Terrenas was one of the only places with availability and the price was right. It is at Playa Bonita so a bit quieter than the village but not to far for easy access. Nico and Wilma are incredibly welcoming and very relaxed, they treated us like family! The apartment and the grounds are well maintained, beautiful and a very short walk to the beach. I would definitely stay here again if I return.

I was at the El Flamboyan apartments for a three week duration over the holiday and could not have been more impressed by the surroundings! They have beautiful gardens that are tended to passionately as well as a lovely pool and outdoor kiosk for entertainment purposes. Wilma and Nico are so accomodating and friendly and work very hard to ensure that all of their tenants needs are met! The apartments are large and located very close to Playa Bonita, making them a convenient location for those interested in frequent Ocean adventures! I would reccomend these apartments to anyone looking to explore Las Terrenas!

I stayed at El Flamboyan for 3 weeks, it was amazing. The people there are great and friendly, they're there when you need something and do their very best to meet your exceptions. Its located 5 minute walk from the beach in a quite place. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay, thank you so much Nico and Wilma. I recommend these apartments to everyone
