“Jupiter and Venus together in the night sky”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

Marsha and I chose Chalet Tropical Village entirely because of the wonderful reviews on TripAdvisor, and especially because of what people said about Sarah's energy and guidance. And everything exceeded expectations! We spent a week in the largest chalet and never stopped admiring the unique, artistic stone and wood construction of the building.  We enjoyed delicious breakfasts of fruit and pancakes on our porch, were directed to great swimming at several different beaches (one a fifteen minute walk and two a motorboat ride away), ate very well at Dominican and Italian places in town and grilled fish places on the beach , hiked all over the neighborhood, and never felt far from Sarah's bright, guiding energy.  When we had questions Sarah was always available to fill us in, give us options, arrange for transportation, etc etc. She really enjoys it when her guests have a good time. You can't do better than that. She even arranged for Jupiter and Venus to shine brightly close to one another in the night sky! I'm not sure how she managed that...

We just loved staying with Sarah and Furvio, such gracious hosts and welcoming family. The location is walking distance to the beach could not be better. Playita was serene and lovely swimming at the entrance of Playa Rincon.
The place is adorable....such a fantastic art piece of color and function...so spacious and great kitchen set up and outdoor environment. Sarah is so willing to help you figure out how to make your activity plans and weave your way through the DR culture. Las Galeras is likely the best of the Samana penninsula! Dont miss it! El Cabito and Playa Rincon are must sees:) Hope to come back soon! Thank you so much! L& A

When we finally arrived to the Chalet Tropical, through the winding roads of Samana, we were relieved to find a quiet gated mini-village with gorgeous flora and hammocks all around. Everyone in the town knew Sarah, and she was happily there to greet us upon arrival. The Chalet 2 was incredibly charming and rustic. The delicious Dominican breakfast was most enjoyable on the front porch. Most importantly, the town felt safe and secure at all times.

It was a 5 minute walk into the small town of Las Galeras. The 10 minute back road trail to the Playita was fun and felt like a secret. During our visit the beaches and town were flooded with French holidayers, making the locals ready to over-charge for every meal and/or service. However, nothing is to be underestimated in this beautiful island village on the edge of the Dominican Republic. The Chalet and our whole vacation was worth every cent and every second.

Room Tip: We recommend Chalet 2 for a couple or small group, not the safest for children. The casa Taina was c...

We just experienced a great five days at Chalet Tropical. The rustic setting allows you to enjoy the natural beauty of the coast and the area. Sarah, the owner, is great! She is so enthusiastic, fun to talk to and will help organize excursions. She was able to get fish from local fisherman for us to prepare at the chalet... it was delicious! The closest beach is simply beautiful with calm, clear waters; it's a very relaxing environment. One of my favorite parts of my days at chalet tropical was enjoying the mornings on our chalet's patio sipping on Dominican coffee enjoying the warm breezes and the peaceful courtyard at Chalet Tropical.

One piece of advice I would give: Against Sarah's advice we rented a car. In the end it was expensive and unnecessary. Thus, I would not rent a car. With the money you save by taking public transport, you can rent a boat to take you to another beach. And again, Sarah will be happy to help you organize any excursions. Thank you for everything Sarah!

We had a wonderful stay at the Chalet Tropical. The chalets are incredibly imaginative, fun and beautiful! This gorgeous place surpassed all of my expectations. It was exactly what I had hoped to find and it was very reasonably priced. I'm so grateful for that - I'm sure you could charge much higher prices for such an incredible place. I really appreciate that this was an affordable luxury! Thank you, Sarah! You made it so easy to plan this trip. It was so relaxing but you still helped us make sure that we got to explore and experience the peninsula! We can't wait to come back for an anniversary!

Room Tip: Everything here is perfection!

If you decide Las Galeras is right for you Chalet Tropical is the perfect place to stay. Sarah and her family are ideal hosts and will provide you with as much- or as little- as you want. In one direction you are less than a 10 minute walk to a beautiful beach and in a different direction you are an equally short walk to town. We stayed in the stucco home 'casa taina' on the grounds and it worked perfectly for our group (2 couples, 1 kid) since there were two bathrooms / three spacious bedrooms. The kitchen is fine and it's easy to shop for local vegetables in Las Galeras if you choose to. (I would recommend it if only to support the local economy.) Do patronize the restaurants as you will not be disappointed if you do your homework.

Chalet Tropical is an amazing experience. My wife and I spent one week on our honeymoon at Chalet Tropical and came back with a lifetime of memories. Sarah is incredible and will arrange to make your trip as special and unique as you want it to be. I wish we could have spent a month at the Chalet because there are endless sights to see and places to experience. Be sure to try out all of the restaurants Sarah recommends; the restaurant on the cliff is incredibly beautiful! Chalet Tropical is a romantic adventure my wife and I will never forget. Also, take a day to ride around the island on the ATV's there is so much to see and experience!!
