What is a Villa Vacation?

 Most people think of a villa vacation as just a villa rental, a time share condo or renting an apartment.  A new concept called the Villa Vacation is much more.  A Villa Vacation has the amenities & service of a 5 star luxury resort plus the extra space of a vacation rental.  A Villa Vacation is a fully staffed private villa in Tuscany, Italy with a private driver, chef & staff to take care of your every need.

Properties

 A Villa Vacation is a residence at the Grand Wailea Maui where friends & family rent a 3 bedroom luxury town house that is part of the resort & has access to all resort amenities.  

 A Villa Vacation is a luxury condo rental at the All-inclusive Generations Riviera Maya.  This ocean front property offers amazing ocean views & also offers adult access to the El Dorado Royale AI Resort next door.

 Villa vacations are great for multigenerational families traveling together. Villa Vacations are an excellent destination wedding option.  A Villa Vacation is a great option for a group of friends that prefer more space but also demand the services of a deluxe resort.

Review of the Hard Rock Resort, Punta Cana.

The Hard Rock Resort Punta Cana was more like Pop Rock Punta Cana, but we still enjoyed ourselves.

Traveled to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic over Christmas 2015 & stayed at the Hard Rock Resort for 7 NTS with my husband & 2 teenagers. Beside the annoying Caribbean pop rock which played continually we really enjoyed ourselves. This may be unfair but I expected to hear more rock & roll as we were staying at the Hard Rock Resort. (I did get to know the DJ at one of the music pools.  He took & played requests...yeah!)hard-rock-hotel-casino

 The resort is large & spread out but the placement of our room, a sand suite, in the center of the resort was a grand location.  Pictures, quotes & paraphernalia of all kinds from current & past rockers filled the lobby, restaurants & suites. Our spacious sand suite, with a full Jacuzzi in the center, had an early picture of the Fab Four i.e. the Beatles relaxing in the sun…very cool. But, I never once heard their music played.

The resort has decent restaurants & bars and the restaurant by the beach “Isla” (open air) proved to be my favorite. We had the breakfast buffet & lunch their almost daily. The Mexican & Asian dining also deserve a nod! The resort offered nightly events like a beach party barbeque & a Michael Jackson show which were very fun. Prefect weather -Rained at night but in the low 80's every day.Hard-Rock-Resort-Beach-view

Service at the Hard Rock was pleasant. The staff is very helpful & friendly considering how hard they have to work. Although gratuities are included a tip does bring a smile.

The main building furthest from the beach has the large air conditioned cool indoor mall which houses the shops, restaurants, gym & the spa. We used are Hard Rock points in the spa which was truly a treat. The Spa & service in it are excellent. All 4 of us had a massage via resort credit points + the 20% tax on the service.

If you seek beach, sun & sand then Punta Cana, Dominican Republic is for you. Walking the beach near the Hard Rock Resort was lovely & cleansing to the soul. You can walk for miles but swimming is not recommended for those who cannot handle the high surf in this area.

I would suggest this resort as destination for family vacations & destination weddings. There is a lot to do & many beautiful venues for a beach or gazebo wedding near the beach.

Tip-If you never take the resort carts & we did not. You can eat & drink as much as you want!

If you have not booked a winter getaway yet there are amazing travel packages still available for travel in late Jan, Feb, March & April, 2016.

Be flexible & recieve the best values.

Lert me help you escape.   Andre' Leavitt, Time Travels inc. 651-771-5666
