Me and my spouse were guests at Villa Taina from Dec. 20 to 27. We were in Dominican Republic to get away FROM Christmas (avoiding commercialism) and this was the perfect place. There were some decorations but they were very tasteful and there were no endless soundtracks of tacky Christmas music.
The hotel was exceptionally clean and housekeeping did an excellent job. Staff are very friendly and make visitors feel welcome. The fare at the restaurant was top quality; we reserved for their special Christmas Eve dinner with multiple courses and were very satisfied. We recommend taking the breakfast-included package (we did) because it is convenient and there is enough variety to keep it interesting.
The beach in front of the hotel is very clean and not heavily populated. Dozens of kiteboarders and sailboarders ply the waters every day and it's such a colorful sight. There are dozens of restaurants flanking the hotel. It is safe and easy to stroll down the beach, checking out menus as you go. Also within walking distance (10-15 minutes) is Janet supermarket. We bought our beer there because it's the cheapest place in town and kept it in the fridge in our rooom.
