At Cocotal Golf & Country Club there are lots of incredible villas that you can rent for your vacation in Paradise. One of them is Villa Wyss with 4 bedrooms, a spectacular and very private garden and swimming pool. Villa Wyss is one of the more affordable villas. Depending on the season, the price starts at US$ 550 per night, which includes a maid and a villa manager to assist you during your stay.
Lately, Villa Wyss has received some pretty nice reviews on VRBO. Our last amazing guests left an incredibly nice and detailed review, which we’re sure other will find helpful too.
PUNTA CANA PARADISE * * * * *

Stayed March 2017 / Submitted March 25, 2017:
We recently ventured to Punta Cana to enjoy spring break with our two college age children. We decided against all inclusive to avoid typical spring break activities, and instead truly relax. We could not have found a better place to relax than Villa Wyss.
Although the pictures on VRBO look impressive, they do not do the property justice. The backyard is completely secluded even though the home is surrounded by other homes and condos. The pool is beautiful, and very well maintained. It was cleaned twice during our visit. Additionally, the outdoor kitchen / grill area is wonderful. We enjoyed several dinners made on the large outdoor barbeque, and ate a leisurely dinner under the gazebo area. There are multiple areas to relax and read a book. If you like sun, great. There are lounge chairs in the yard. If you like shade, there is a very nice veranda on the back of the home, and then the gazebo area in the center of the pool.
The home itself is very spacious, and well appointed. Everything you need is on hand. The beds are comfortable, but maybe not the most comfortable you’ve ever slept on. Each bedroom has its own bathroom which is sufficient, but not luxurious. The kitchen has everything on hand you’ll need to prepare your meals. Shopping for groceries is easy as the Super Lama is just a 10 minute walk to the mall that sits across the road from the Cocotal property. We did book the chef for one day as we were celebrating a milestone anniversary. Bertrand, the chef, cooked breakfast and dinner. Breakfast was good, but dinner was out of this world. The price was also reasonable in comparison to eating at one of the local places.
Two of the best things about the property are Maxima, the housekeeper, and Jose Anotonio, the property manager. Maxima is very attentive, and very sweet. If possible, get her to make you some “torta de maiz”. Jose was very helpful in arranging transportation to the excursions we had booked through the Palmera Group. Although expensive, the Samana excursion was wonderful. Also, do try Captain Cook’s restaurant. Definitely allow Jose to arrange for transportation as it is in an area that tourists may not frequent as often. However, it is well worth it.
The only issue we had was getting access to the all inclusive property that is supposed to be included with the rental. (*see owner’s response) However, it was not a huge deal for us as the villa itself is so nice. We absolutely enjoyed our time at Villa Wyss.
Owner response: Hi Jeff, Thank you for your nice words. We enjoyed having you here in Punta Cana and hope to see you soon again. I am a bit confused about the access to the All Inclusive resort. I assume you are talking about Melia Caribe Tropical, across the street. I don’t know who told you that you would have access to that, as it is no-where in any of our communication. The access to that resort is ONLY for property owners, and we still have to buy a DAYPASS to use the hotel. As a rental client you can buy a daypass to use the facilities there and the price is around USD 75-100 per person per 1/2 day. But you can do this at any of the all inclusive properties. Best regards, Anders
