About Jeannette Sanchez-Lopez
Owned by a family from Casa de Campo, Dominican Republic. We are a Dominican-American family composed of a third-generation native of La Romana, and a New York bred Dominican, with almost 40 years of experience in the travel industry. I manage my villa like a boutique hotel and like to pamper my clients and anticipate their needs so that their experience is memorable. Having worked at Casa de Campo for my entire career, both in Operations and as Vice-President of Sales & Marketing, I am recently retired. I know the ins and outs of the resort, and combine this with a passion for service and the hospitality that Dominicans are famous for. My Time is Yours!
Jeannette Sanchez-Lopez purchased this Villa in 2000
Why Jeannette Sanchez-Lopez chose Casa de Campo
Home built in Casa de Campo due to the resort´s unique combination of natural beauty, sporting life, social life and relaxing atmosphere. Our family has been a part of the owning company´s founding history, dating back to the early twentieth century and it felt natural to invest in this wonderful resort and continue to be a part of this diverse community. The monumental 20 ft. double doorway front entrance is reminiscent of the Baptistery in Florence, with bronze plaques commemorating the history of the island, the town of La Romana and our own family landmarks.
What makes this Villa unique
Our home has high ceilings and plenty of tall glass windows to allow the flow of natural air and sunlight and beautiful traditional red clay Caribbean floors to conserve the cool temperature of the rooms. Lots of lawn and garden space to enjoy the tropical climate under shady fruit trees or recharge your energy under the wonderful sun.

Absolute perfection at Villa del Portal!
Words cannot express how perfect our stay at Villa del Portal was. We were there in March 2019, and the experience started before we came down with a call from Jeannette, the owner of the Villa. She has had 30+ years experience with Casa De Campo, and assisted me with wonderful recommendations for activities, dining, childcare - absolutely everything - for the duration of our stay. Each recommendation was perfect. She also assisted with our airport transfers, shopping for groceries before our arrival and organizing dining reservations. Her staff at the Villa were simply the best - so caring, polite, intuitive and the BEST chefs on the island, in our opinion!! English was not spoken, but we all managed perfectly - as we learned Spanish very quickly! They could not have been better at making sure we had everything that we needed. If I could give them 50 stars on a scale of 1-10, I would.
The Casa de Campo resort was also wonderful with enough for us to do each day while we were there. We found a car was probably a necessity if you want to visit Altos de Chavon or want to do into La Romana, but the golf carts we used to get around were certainly sufficient. We will definitely ONLY stay at Villa del Portal when we return to Casa de Campo. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
Everything we expected and more.
From the moment we arrived at Villa del Porto we knew we found the perfect experience. Jeannette, the owner, made the planning and arrangements all happen easily and without any hassle. When we arrived early that first night we were greeted by staff as if we were coming home. We all were immediately taught to use Google translate so we would not miss a single beat when our poor Spanish didn't work. Lots of giggles with the staff at some of our descriptions. . The villa itself is welcoming, very spacious, comfortable and beautifully appointed in keeping with the culture. Please note the very special doors.
We quickly learned about all the activities and restaurants and discovered they were endless. Being convenient to the hotel was particularly helpful. We availed ourselves of the concierge services to arrange night time vans, restaurant reservations and suggestions.
Daytimes included exceptional golf, TEETH is our favourite, exploring Altos Chavon, a late afternoon trip to the spa, time at Minitas Beach, and best of all was the Polo match. Hanging out at our pool where Nancy served afternoon drinks and goodies was a wonderful end to each busy day. Nights we tried many terrific restaurants.
Nancy prepared way too much for a wonderful breakfast and begged to know what we wanted for lunch when we finished. My husband would love to bring Nancy home to do his laundry. I just do not make his clothes look like she does. Geraldo managed the grounds and pool area meticulously and became a great friend. He speaks Spanish and French and is very friendly and helpful.
We will definitely be back. There were two couples but could easily have been four. Next year we are going back without a doubt. Best time was had by all. Thank you Jeannette for putting it all together.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Casa De Campo. The accommodations were wonderful.
Plenty of room to gather as a group both inside and out.
Very clean and well kept.
Perfect from the very first moment!
Every detail was expertly handled. The accommodations, food, service, and location are absolutely first-rate. The location is so convenient to everything: golf, beach, and restaurants. We cannot wait to return next year!
Great house and Jeannette was amazing!
We booked with Jeannette after a nightmare experience with another owner/property manager where they completely went dark and were unresponsive until three days before we were supposed to arrive...only to cancel our reservation due to damage to their house from previous guests. Needless to say, I was scrambling to find another house - we have three little kids and had booked expensive flights. Jeannette was the most accommodating, helpful, and kind partner. She not only responded to my requests within minutes, she also worked long and late to book reservations, buy groceries for us, and arrange transportation. She made us feel at ease after a very unsettling experience. The house was great - the rooms were big and great for large families. The staff was very friendly although I will say you need to know some Spanish as it would have been very hard to communicate without.
The pool was fantastic and grounds were beautiful. The location of the house was ideal - closer to the beach than the marina which was great because for kids - the beach is the place to be. The hotel pool was fine - more of an adult scene but totally kid friendly if you're kids are self sufficient and are happy playing in the water. Overall - our stay was great. The house was lovely and the owner was definitely a highlight. Bring lots of cash - small bills. Tips are given to everyone and expected. Also - we were eaten alive by mosquitoes. A lot of the windows didn't have screens - which I'm sure is a not a big deal to the locals, but for those used to screens - wear bug spray!!
Great Villa for whole family
Set up of home was great having my elderly Mother and 4 kids. The pool is Perfect for kids to play. The two ladies working were nice and unobtrusive. My kids loved the prepared meals. Groceries very expensive though. Location is a bit far from beach and the golf carts were gas, loud and slow. Jeannette is extremely helpful and responsive. She returned calls immediately and addressed all issues, mostly very minor, in record time. She went above and beyond what I would expect by attempting to find and install a higher toilet seat for my elderly mother. It did not fit but the fact is she did not have to go so out of her way and it was much appreciated. I would rent this villa again hands down. Jeannette helped plan our activities and dinners. Restaurants are mostly very good although the ones at Marina all overrated in my opinion. The staff at Casa all nice and helpful. We had not issues at all. Jeannette is trustworthy, hard working and very kind and gracious. I would trust my vacation to her.
