Testimonials - Arenas de Bavaro Property Owners


David & Laurie - Roundhill, Virginia, USA


My wife Laurie and I would like to thank Scott Medina and his team of professionals for our recent real estate purchase.  We purchased the property sight unseen via the internet.  The information and pictures that Scott provided on the property were spot on and there was absolutely no hidden or misleading information.  Scott and his team were always prompt in responding to all requests and emails.  Scott was very helpful throughout the entire process, from the offer, the contract, and delivery of exactly what we expected, a like new condo.  When we arrived at the condo we were greeted by Scott and he and Ellen walked us through the entire process of being home owners in the Dominican Republic.  Getting utilities transferred into our name and opening bank accounts etc. was a breeze with the help from Scott and Ellen.  They truly are a full service real estate broker.  Once we got somewhat settled in Ellen introduced us to the area attractions, restaurants, shopping and made us feel totally at home.  Ellen thank you very much.  If you are purchasing a property in the Dominican Republic we highly recommend that you use Scott, Ellen and the rest of his team for your transaction.

Hi Scott. We want to thank you for helping us find our dream place in Arenas de Bavaro in Punta Cana. From the time I first emailed you and through the buying process you made it so stress free for us. We were looking to buy a condo in the Caribbean and when we saw you in House Hunters International we decided to contact you. You really think of everything.  Thank you again.

We fell in love with Punta Cana and El Cortecito / Los Corales Bavaro area the first time we went there. Beautiful endless beaches under the swinging palm trees all yours, great weather all year around, friendly locals and very safe at anytime.  Wake up very early in the morning, walk along the coast and see the sun rising, spectacular.  Take long strolls under the sun…endless white sand beaches and warm turquoise ocean.  A picnic day in Macao beach, cold beers and fresh fish from a local modest restaurant, is as close as you can get to the paradise.


A couple of weeks after the first time in Punta Cana we decided to buy a vacation home and we bought our condo in El Cortecito through Scott Medina with La Costa Destinations International Realty - GoPuntaCanaRealEstate.com.  It was a fast, easy and reliable transaction.  Scott is very professional and because we trusted with every detail of the purchase he got the best deal for us. The extent of his services went beyond of what we usually get from any other real estate agent. Scott helped not only with the purchase but with the utilities hook up, setting up the bank account for us, provided legal support and followed up with the lawyer, helped with furnishing and cleaning and any other construction upgrades.  He responds immediately, almost instantly no matter where you are, to all your requests through e-mails or phone calls (which is not very common these days).  One of the benefits of relying on Scott is the fact that he continues to maintain relationships with his clients even after the purchase is complete and the buyer feels that nothing else is left.  He appreciates the business from his clients and does not turn his back on them after the purchase and beyond that.  Though Scott is very busy, he is always there for us, at our disposal at any time and this is priceless.  We highly recommend using Scott and only Scott for your purchase in Punta Cana.

There are many places you can go, do shopping, watch a movie and go to lovely restaurants in places like Palma Real Shopping Center (great pizza place or real paellas ordered and delivered from the kiosk operated by Joana from Valencia, Spain), Punta Cana Village (lovely Portuguese and Italian restaurants and Starbuck type bagel Café, Wendy’s etc..),  Nacional Supermarket (big brand new and with lots of food and drink choices), Friusa town interesting on its own hectic days, brand new San Juan Shopping Center with cinemas, restaurant, Pizza Hut and shopping places etc… all this within 10 to 15 minutes drive.  And if you don’t want to drive just walk to the local markets for fresh fruits, shopping and restaurants …there are plenty of them… such as Pulpo Cojo (maybe the best restaurant in the area with a private beach, cabana shades and comfortable chaise lounges for your use).

Hi Scott,
As you know we are now proud owners of a "dream vacation" place at Punta Cana.  You are an excellent Real Estate Broker. You listen to your clients needs. You are fantastic at replying immediately to each and every one of your clients messages, we like that in a person, and you really master that asset.
From the very beggining you displayed an interactive roll trying to understand our personal preferences and matching what was available for us in Punta Cana. We were able to narrow our choices to the point that the very first day we went looking for a place, we found it! Yes, we really love what we bought.
We will recommend you as the perfect person to contact if they want to buy property in 
Punta Cana. Your diligence in answering all our many questions and great patience to explain why other places were not good for us, was amazing.
Our friends here in Toronto, know you by name now and have checked your website. For sure they will contact you if they decide to buy in Punta Cana. We could say even more positive things about dealing with "Scott Medina", but for now we will leave it at that.
Thanks again Scott,
your new friends,
Ron and Ellen

Scott, you are such a great agent!  I felt comfortable with you from the very beginning.  You are most attentive and your immediate response to ALL my concerns is what puts you over the top!  I will share my experience with my family and friends, and hopefully they will want to invest in the Carribean as well.

Thanks for Evenything!


Roseanne & Alex P. - New Jersey, USA

I'm writing this letter to you to express my gratitude to you for all your help in the purchase of our condo at Arenas de Bavaro in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. After vacationing in Punta Cana a year and a half ago we simply fell in love with its magnificent beaches and beautiful people. When we arrived home and did a little research on the area, we knew right away that this was the place for us. We came across the property, Arenas Bevaro that you represented, on the internet. Believe it or not, less than a month later we had purchased our condo sight unseen.

As far as real estate agents go your the best that I've ever worked with, this being the fourth property I've ever purchased. You have never lost sight of the fact that we were your clients. You have always answered every question promptly, and have gone out of your way (whenever possible) to help us out. For me buying something without seeing it first was a very scary proposition, but you made us feel so comfortable with the whole process that it truly was a snap. Your recommendations were always accurate and helpful.  It's been a pleasure working with you. If I'm ever interested in purchasing another property in the DR, you'll be the first person I'll call. Thanks again for everything.
