When you stay at Villa La Palapa, you’ll have a range of exclusive 5-star services at your fingertips and access to the some of the best facilities in Punta Cana, including world championship golf courses, 3 miles of pristine beach, the only Six Senses Spa in the Caribbean, a pioneering ecological park with fresh water lagoons and plenty of exquisite dining options. This is a wonderful place for you to stay with your family and/or friends and enjoy a Caribbean vacation with sun, beach and golf. LOCATION: Villa La Palapa is located at the exclusive Puntacana Resort & Club, a gated resort & residential community with 24-hour gated entrance and security. The villa is conveniently located approx. 3 miles from Punta Cana International Airport – just a short 10-min drive and you’ll arrive at Villa La Palapa. If you want to go off property to explore the local area, the Puntacana Shopping Village and Blue Mall Puntacana are located just outside the resort and you can easily get there in a rental car or with our pre-arranged transportation service ($). Villa La Palapa is located on the La Cana golf course; a 27-hole championship golf course designed by P. B. Dye, with 4 oceanfront holes and 14 holes with ocean views. From Villa La Palapa you’ll be close to the most incredible virgin-like beach of Playa Serena with powdery white sand and clear, shallow ocean. Just a quick drive (or walk), and you’ll be jumping in the ocean! Playa Serena is very suitable for families and small children, as the ocean is rather calm and shallow. If you want a beach with a little more life, you can easily go to Playa Blanca Beach Club which is also inside the resort. To get around the resort, the villa rental includes two 4-passenger golf/touring carts, which you may use to go anywhere inside Puntacana Resort & Club. THE SPACE: Villa La Palapa is a spectacular 8000 sq. ft. villa built in 2 levels and with a big, private backyard and lawn. This is probably one of the most interesting villas that you’ll find in Punta Cana – the contemporary design combines European elegance with Caribbean vibes. The villa has 5 beautiful and comfortable bedrooms with ensuite bathroom. The entrance to the villa is very clean and minimalist, but as soon as you enter the wooden, swinging front door, you'll instantly get a warm and tropical welcome. At the heart of Villa La Palapa you'll find the lush, beautiful garden with palm trees and white stone pathways that gives this villa a truly Zen atmosphere. The villa has an open design from the front entrance all the way through the spacious terrace, pool area and garden. The terrace and garden area offer an incredible space for lounging, dining, relaxing and entertaining. Tucked neatly on one side of the villa you’ll find an outdoor basketball court (one hoop). The backyard offers a great green oasis with trees and palm trees. This is a very flexible and comfortable space that invites you to spend most of your time at Villa La Palapa. The villa is air conditioned but also offers you plenty of outdoor space if you prefer the feel of the warm, Caribbean air. Spend your days swimming in the pool, lounging on the deck or playing in the tropical garden. Enjoy a delicious lunch served on the terrace and take a nap pool side and let the Caribbean breeze carry you away… DOWNSTAIRS: Villa La Palapa has 2 bedrooms located downstairs. The 1st bedroom has a Queen bed, air condition, ceiling fan, closet, ensuite bathroom with shower and a private “courtyard” terrace with garden. The 2nd bedroom is the “kids’ room” with 4 single/twin beds, air condition, ceiling fan, closet, desk and ensuite bathroom with shower. From the bedrooms, you’ll walk through the garden, which is in the middle of the villa, to get to the casual living room. This space has big windows, it’s air conditioned and has a nice sofa sitting area, TV, assortment of books and ceiling fan. The modern kitchen with island is fully equipped with everything you need to cook wonderful and delicious meals during your vacation. If you prefer to hire a professional chef for the duration of your stay and to make your vacation life easier, you also have this option available. The kitchen connects to the indoor dining room with dining table that seats 10-12 people comfortably. But maybe you prefer to dine more casually on the outdoor terrace by the pool where you have another dining table and also a comfortable sofa lounge area. UPSTAIRS: Upstairs, you’ll find the last bedrooms. The 3rd bedroom has a king bed, air condition, ceiling fan, big windows, a desk, closet and ensuite bathroom with shower. The 4th bedroom has 2 queen beds, air condition, ceiling fan, closet and bathroom with shower. Last, but not least, the master bedroom. This lovely suite has a king bed, air condition, ceiling fan, TV, closet, ensuite bathroom with double vanity (2 sinks), shower and bath tub. The master also has a private roof terrace.More

This was my first time staying in a villa (I usually stay at all inclusive resorts in the Caribbean) but the experience I had at Villa La Palapa has me never wanting to stay at a resort again! I stayed her with a group of 9 girls for my bachelorette trip and it was everything we could ask for and more. We chose to the do the all inclusive package and I'm SO GLAD we did. Junior was our chef and anything and everything we requested for him to make, he did, and it was absolutely delicious. Best food we've ever had, period. Erwin was our butler and Iris was our housekeeper. They were both phenomenal as well. We learned that you can request your staff, and I would HIGHLY recommend requesting Junior, Erwin, and Iris. Now, for the house itself, everything was immaculately clean and up to date. The rooms are spacious and the AC works perfectly. We never had a problem being too hot. You'll probably end up spending most of your time out by the pool, which is well maintained and the outdoor patio has a table and chairs, so you can have lunch al fresco without even having to change out of your bathing suits. The villa comes with 2 golf carts, which makes it easy to get around to the different restaurants on the property (it's located in a gated community) and the beach. The beach is a private beach for the community and it's about a 10 minute golf cart ride away from the villa. The staff from pre-booking to departure were all really helpful and attentive. If you're considering staying here, do yourself a favor and JUST BOOK IT!! You won't regret it.

I stayed with my sisters and 4 nieces and nephews- the house had the perfect mix of beds and rooms to accommodate the family so everyone had the space they needed- The home is a quick golf cart ride to several great beaches- the ecological reserve and plenty of golf if you play- The staff at the house was the highlight for the family- they were so caring and even though language barrier was an issue we managed just fine- they made sure everyone was comfortable and had what we needed- We had Melania cook 2 dinners of very simple local food which all the kids said was the best food they ever had- we hired a private chef for 1 breakfast and dinner- it was delicious but i think the family enjoyed the more simple food we made ourselves and Melania made. I would go back anytime- a few glitches in that the house does need some small updates/upgrades that are small and so probably overlooked but they would make a big difference. there are 2 portable bluetooth speakers but they don't really work- no one knew ho two operate or get the Apple TV device to work that was in the TV room- all the knives in the kitchen are very dull and only 1 side off the toaster worked, ping pong table only had 1 ball that was dented- like I said very small issues but should be adjusted then it would be perfect
