I rented this place with 3 months in advance and when I was almost there I discovered that the place was rented twice. So my family and 4 friends don’t have where stay and there was a curfew and they didn’t care about us and offered us an ugly and dirty place to spent the weekend.

Dear Sir, I am really sorry but I can't identify who you are and cannot even find any trace of the "pseudo" reservation you made on this site ! After 10 years of renting Villa Sofia and almost only 5* reviews, your reviews is really suspicious. Are you a jealous competitor or the victim of a fraud, I don't know. I have never been aware of any problem of this kind; we have always offered the highest level of service and what you describe is at the opposite of what we deliver. I then suspect you have been the victim of a scammer. I will ask to have this review removed if possible. To all our future guests, please read our long history of past reviews and discard this one. Thank you.

After 3 month with a paid reservation, the host never appear up to we arrive to the location. When we arrive he tried to convence us to accept stay in another different property to Villa Sofia. It was a complete fraud, the house he show us it was abandoned, old and in a very bad conditions. As we don’t accept the property offered, because we reserved and pay for Villa Sofia in June (3 month before), he didn’t reserve any place and we had in Terrenas 3 hours before the local’s curfew Because the COVID-19, and with any place where sleep, we and our child’s were very stressed. The host wast completely inconsiderate and un respectful with us, the experience was completely horrible. Now we think the Villa Sofia Place is not real, they never show the places, it’s a fraud.

We stayed there Feb 13 to Feb 16. It was very nice stay. Olga and Josefina were great. The place needs a few upgrades which we heard are being done soon. Bedrooms are great, pools are great.

Villa Sofia is just as great as what you see in the pictures. Lovely villa, with everything you might need. The best thing about this villa is the staff, Olga , Josefina, Edoardo, are great human beings, they are super charming and professional, they are there to make sure you have fun, willing to help you in anyway they can. This villa is a two minute walk to the beach, the beach is amazing, on the right side you have waves, on the left, the water is like a pool. This is an open villa, which means, lots of mosquitos , so bring enough repellent, and take some anti mosquitos stuff, like citronella candles, sticks. The pool area is amazing, this pool is so beautiful and clean. Overall, it was a great experience, will definitely be back. Wish JetBlue would fly directly from NYC into the airport at samana, otherwise, you have to travel to Santo Domingo, and from there a 2 and a half hour drive to the villa. The villa, has a great look, just be aware that there is a neighbor next to the villa, which is very picky about noise, had her come twice to tell me to lower down music at around 7 pm. Not cool, since you are there for vacation, she rents her house next door too, but during my week , she was there. So hope that she is not there when you go, and if so, tell her off. You paying money to enjoy it. If any questions please ask me, more than happy to answer any questions or concerns. Thank you so much Patrick, you are a great host, I do hope you talk to your neighbor to address the noise situation, 7 pm on a Saturday night?? Come on!!!

Jejjejjeee.... I was in Europe but had been informed of this little neighborhood incident ! First, Eduard, thank you for your nice comments about Villa Sofia and our team; they effectively usually do very well ! You are right, May and June are months with some mosquitoes, and any place in LT where you go, it is advised to have some repellent with you. That is the downside of tropical countries ! The SDQ airport is only 90mn from Villa Sofia with our chauffeur, not 2h30, but I guess you took an alternative road ! JetBlue used to land directly at Samana AZS from NYC, and we hope they'll be back here soon ! I sincerely apologize for the neighbor incident; this is unusual because it only happened a few times those last 10 years, and always with disrespectful guests playing music late in the night ! Maybe she was just tired that day. We are good friends, I will talk with them soon. Hope to see you again soon. Thank you. Patrick

I accompanied my sisters family of ten including children, teens and adults to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. This is an ideal place for extended families with a great staff and wonderful amenities. My grandnephew has many serious food allergies and the cooks adapted meals to his needs without making him feel left out. Our every need was met! All we had to do is ask. The beach and the pool were constantly in use. Highly recommended.

Per Zufall stoße ich heute morgen auf die Beurteilung meines Vorgängers und bin völlig irritiert.Meine Familie,unsere Freundin und ich waren nur kurz davor für 2 1/2 Wochen in der Villa Sofia und haben dort alles ganz anders erlebt.Obwohl ich sonst keine reviews schreibe,fühle ich mich jetzt berufen.Wir hatten eine wundervolle Zeit in der Villa! Alle waren zuvorkommend,haben Spaß mit den kids gemacht und sich bemüht,uns den Urlaub unvergesslich zu machen.Das es zu diesem Zeitpunkt viele Moscitos gab,ist der einzige Punkt,bei dem ich meinem Vorredner zustimme.Es gibt Dinge,die kann man nicht beeinflussen.Aber was hat das mit der Ausstattung der Villa zu tun?Man beurteilt doch hier den Komfort,den Service und die Lage und nicht das Wetter und die Anzahl der Moscitos! Gerade die offene Bauweise hat uns zum Beispiel sehr gut gefallen.Wir sind im Dezember dem Schmuddelwetter in Deutschland in die karibische Sonne entflohen,natürlich um uns draußen aufzuhalten.Sonne zu tanken,draußen zu essen zu trinken.....So ist die Villa auch konzipiert.Das Leben spielt sich draußen ab! Übrigens in der Küche hat alles funktioniert.Wir haben manchmal selbst gekocht,manchmal für uns kochen lassen(an dieser Stelle:viele liebe Grüße an unser CateringTeam,ihr seid phantastisch!)Ein einziges Mal in 18 Tagen ist der Kühlschrank ausgefallen.Josephina hat telefoniert und als wir nach 2 Std.vom Strand wieder kamen,war alles repariert. Wer solche Ausfälle nicht akzeptieren kann,muß im Bayrischen Wald Urlaub machen. Mein Fazit:Es war immer alles tip/top.und ich danke Euch für eure dominikanische Leichtigkeit.Wir haben jede Sekunde genossen,liebe Grüße an das gesamte Team.

Dear Stephan, I don’t speak German, but Google Translate gave me a good idea of the content of your review; I am sorry, but I can only answer you in English. Thank you very much for your nice comments and to support us after reading the negative review we got in January. I have already received many support messages, and I am glad you express it publicly. We are not at all perfect, but you saw that we try to improve every day. As you said, mosquitoes are a common fact to all tropical islands at certain periods and this issue is not related to Villa Sofia in particular. Looking forward welcoming you again son in Las Terrenas. Sincerely. Patrick

We have just returned from a fabulous week at Villa Sofia! Four families with teenagers shared this wonderful villa and it could not have been more perfect! All four adult couples were thrilled with their rooms - and the kids enjoyed having their own space as well. We took advantage of the beach, surf schools and beach bars everyday - choosing to end each afternoon around the pools at the Villa. Plenty of sun and shade to suite all tastes! We opted for the dinner plan and we could not have been happier! Breakfast and Dinners were ALL amazing and served with a smiles! We can recommend the chicken pineapple salad (a bit hit with all as a first course) as well as the beef and the Cordon Bleu chicken. The house staff were also amazing - a language barrier is to be expected - but google translate helped us out on numerous occasions : ) Yes - the power goes out almost daily - but this is expected in any third world country, It was never a real concern for us as the TV's were never on and there were plenty of candles if it happened at night! The owner (Patrick) and Elodie (Manager) were both very accommodating with our group and we were very grateful. Bugs are bugs - you don't actually see them - some of us got more bites than others... one traveller had a reaction and went to see a doctor. The Doc explained that there is something you can take ahead of time to prevent that reaction (which was ultimately treated with meds) so I do recommend looking into this if you are prone to bug bites! Elodie arranged for cabs and delivery of snack food and wine and beer for us - all very convenient! The open living area was a favourite of ours - whether enjoying Joesphina's wonderful breakfast and coffee or playing guitars or charades at night - there was plenty of room for us all to gather. Loved the villa, the food and the staff - would recommend in a heartbeat!

Un séjour en famille inoubliable. La qualité du lieu et la Villa Sofia a largement contribué à faire de ce moment un réel plaisir. L'emplacement est idéal, l'accès aux plages très facile et la villa en elle même à la fois grandiose et surprenante. Chacune des chambres est superbe avec sa propre originalité et l'espace à vivre entouré des 2 piscines parfait et spacieux. Un grand merci également à l'ensemble du personnel à la fois discret et serviable...Juste le bon dosage... N'oubliez pas de découvrir également les charmes de Las Terrenas et l'accueil de sa population. A refaire très vite...
