Julio and MERCY
Dominicans have a well-deserved reputation for their genuine hospitality and friendliness. They make you feel like a guest in their country. They are quick to smile, laugh often and have a cheerful disposition in dealing with problems that arise. “No Problema” is a well-known phrase and this attitude of taking things in stride is a good example for all of us.
Rest assured you will be well taken care of. This has been our family home for over 30 years. A lot of thought and time has been invested in creating a comfortable, safe and relaxing vacation home. In fact, many of the changes made and optional services implemented were based on guest recommendations. We have developed long-term, trusting relationships with the many people who help us operate it. They are dedicated, experienced and eager to serve you. They have become our second family and many guests feel the same by the end of their stay.
FULLY STAFFED CARIBBEAN VILLA PROVIDES A RELAXING CAREFREE VACATION FOR EVERYONE- MOMS INCLUDED!
Ongoing attentive service from the maid(s), personal houseman, night watchman and local tour director will ensure that all your needs are taken care of. We even have mother's helpers standing by to assist with children so young parents can unwind, and the staff can quickly call for a masseuse or mani-pedicurist... Your vacation begins the moment you walk through the door. Should any problems or issues arise, our full time manager is ready to step in and address them. It is easy to relax in this lovely Caribbean island when you are in such competent and experienced hands.
One important note: Our staff understands your need for a relaxing, stress-free vacation. They will cheerfully offer services as needed but will also quietly retreat to their own staff quarters allowing your group the privacy to enjoy your vacation on your terms without excessive interference.
ATTENTIVE DEDICATED STAFF PAMPER YOU BETTER THAN AN ALL INCLUSIVE RESORT- YOU HAVE FLEXIBILITY AND FREEDOM TO ENJOY YOUR OWN PRIVATE VILLA
Generally the maids work from 8:30- 4:30 Monday- Saturday and a half day on Sunday. For a small additional fee and taxi fare the maids are willing to stay later (7-8PM) on weeknights or work a full day on Sunday. That way if you had a busy day traveling and arrive at the villa late in the afternoon you can relax, unpack, and get thoroughly settled without feeling the need to immediately venture off to a restaurant. They will also stay later on specific weeknights to serve and clean your dinners if you prefer to dine in. They are at your service. However, PLEASE NOTE: this overtime service needs to be requested in advance so they have time to prepare.
During your stay you always have the option of asking the maids to arrive later in the morning or sending them home early or if you would rather have the villa to yourselves. These lovely ladies are the ones who will really make your vacation something special. They work hard to ensure everyone is pampered, mothers included. For that reason, many female guests cry when the vacation is over…
Mercy is our long term courteous and hardworking Primary Maid. With great pride the owner can attest that Mercy is known as the best cook in Cofresi. Maids from other villas frequently come to ask for her recipes but she keeps them private for Villa Vista Del Mar guests. When there are larger groups her daughters, Glenny and Ingrid, come in to assist. Together they form a team that will prepare, cook and serve your meals, make and serve drinks and snacks throughout the day as needed, make the beds, tend to the laundry and keep the villa spotless. And most importantly they will bring you frosty tropical drinks while you float in the pool. They will cater to the individual needs of your group. For example they understand that some kids want a different meal from the adults, or there may be vegetarians or food allergies in the group.
Julio Martinez is our personal full time devoted houseman of 25+ years and speaks English. He settles you in, shows you around and answers any questions. He keeps the property in pristine condition and takes care of optional requests such as food shopping, party events and errand service throughout your vacation. Julio is on the scene 8:30 AM- 6:00 PM Monday- Saturday to ensure an easy, care free vacation.
Gabino BINET is our full time manager (available 24/7) who oversees the management of our villa and staff. He will stop by to greet you and answer any questions. He is fluent in English and is a talented problem solver.
PEDRO is our personal Night Watchman who works Monday - Saturday from dusk until dawn. His presence acts as a deterrent to petty crime, and has served us well, since there have been limited problems here in Cofresi. PIO is our Sunday night watchman. He works all day and through the night on Sundays

MOST GUESTS FEEL THEY HAVE FOUND A 2ND FAMILY BY VACATIONS END
Many guests have said they quickly feel at ease and comfortable at Villa Vista Del Mar. Many have commented that they were not expecting the warm “welcome home” comments upon arrival and were pleasantly surprised by the delicious snacks and drinks served the moment they walked through the front door. They are genuinely sad too leave the attentive, pampering maid service behind when their vacation is over. Living the life of luxury in a tropical retreat is hard to give up.
