Grand Laguna Beach
Grand Laguna Beach is in an enviable location between the towns of Sosua and Cabarete, both of which have plenty to offer including bars, restaurants and beaches. Built within a secure neighbourhood, Grand Laguna Beach is an elite condominium project enabling owners and guests to enjoy luxury accommodation with the highest quality finishes, as well as a holiday experience offering both privacy and a real taste of the authentic Dominican Republic. The condos are contemporary in design and filled with all the mod cons, while guests also have access to a saltwater pool with waterfall, a bar and grill, an idyllic beach and stunning ocean views. It’s no wonder that the development has won the prestigious TripAdvisor “Certificate of Excellence” three years in a row.
There are several different condos on offer – junior, large, large extra, extra large and penthouse. Junior condos can sleep 2 adults and 1 child, and larger parties can find ample accommodation in larger condos, with penthouses having enough space for 6 adults and 2 children. All enjoy 24 hour security, free wifi, housekeeping and laundry service, and all are finished to the highest standard, featuring natural stone floors and elegant, comfortable furniture throughout, granite worktops in the fully equipped kitchens and HDTVs showing the latest movies and TV shows free of charge. Bathrooms are well stocked with high quality towels and linens and tasteful wall-hangings add a touch of character. Top tip – All the condos are of a very high standard, but some have better views than others. Ask for something facing the ocean on one of the higher floors to enjoy the most spectacular on offer.
