The personalized service, persistence and perseverance of Mariano Sanz is what has allowed his company, Inversiones Aides, to become the sales leader in Cap Cana.

Mariano Sanz’s origins in Real Estate took place from the beginning of Cap Cana, in 2002. There, Mr. Sanz says he managed to acquire the necessary skills to form Inversiones Aides in 2006, a Real Estate Boutique specializing in luxury properties.

Being the only Real Estate Agent to remain since the beginning of Cap Cana, his brand has extensive knowledge of the development, history, and evolution of this destination. Consequently, Inversiones Aides has managed to become the company with the highest sales volumes, thus attracting a wide portfolio of local and international clients, always with the objective of promoting and selling Cap Cana locally and worldwide as a City Destination.


In the professional history of Mariano Sanz it has become clear that his success is not fortuitous, since together with Logroval and other partners, they are developing the first tower in the eastern part of the Dominican Republic in Cap Cana.

“I am an Engineer, my father is an architect and I grew up watching real estate developments of important dimensions. Thanks to this, what the knowledge of urban planning and the construction industry contributes to my profession has become the main tool for our success in the real estate market, because I believe that our differential value prevails there in the assistance of our customers. Likewise, it has allowed me to be part of one of the most attractive projects within Cap Cana, this being 7 Mares, the first high rising tower in the eastern part of the Dominican Republic”.

It may seem strange that Inversiones Aides is limited solely to the tourism market of this destination, however, Mr. Sanz clarifies "We decided to focus our activities on this tourist area because when we saw the Master Plan designed at the origin of Cap Cana, and knowing in depth the capacity of the developers involved, we realized the potential that it has thanks to the richness of its location and the diversity of amenities that it offers, thus making it a Destination City. Today more than ever, we continue to believe that marketing a product outside of Cap Cana is for us to disintegrate, since Cap Cana offers a very wide variety of real estate, in which much remains to be worked on”.


The reputation that Aides Real Estate may have is due to continuous work, perseverance, and vision of the future. "Since our main task is real estate sales, I think that the main key to our success lies within the continuous and post-sale service, since we seek to satisfy the needs of our buyers, recommending and guiding them throughout the process."


Inversiones Aides is part of the Cap Cana Real Estate team, which has the largest and most diverse inventory that it shares only with specialized sellers in Cap Cana. “In this way, it supplies us with all the properties available for sale within Cap Cana. The variety of the inventory and the extensive knowledge that we have of them allows us to find, previously evaluating our clients, options for all buyers and this has been an essential part of our success as sales leaders”.


As experts in the Real Estate market of Cap Cana, Aides Real Estate always seeks to satisfy the concerns of its clients, which vary depending on the type of person and the type of need of each family. In this sense, Mariano Sanz does not hesitate to affirm that “Throughout our 20 years in Cap Cana, we can say that we have seen various evolutions of thought in the purchase of real estate. By having both a national and international clientele, and thanks to the characteristics of this project, this diversity of cultures have teached us great things and we to them. It gives a lot of pleasure to show your country to a foreigner and that they highlight benefits that one might not have noticed”.

Undoubtedly, knowledge of the market and a solid service philosophy keep Inversiones Aides at the top.

The 5 Best Adults Only All Inclusive Resorts

The 5 Best Adults Only All Inclusive Resorts

By Lindsey Olander
Planning your next spring break getaway? In the mood for a romantic escape for two? When only an adults getaway will do, these five best all-inclusive resorts in Punta Cana deliver.

1 Excellence Punta Cana
Romance is all but guaranteed at this adults-only all-inclusive thanks to its slew of atmospheric, high-end restaurants, theater and casino entertainment, 24-hour room service, and included activities like scuba diving, paddle-boarding, and snorkeling off a dreamy palm-lined beach. While the buildings are colonial in style, guest room interiors are clean-lined and contemporary with stunning water views.

2 CHIC by Royalton Resorts
Whether you’re in the mood to relax or to mingle, CHIC by Royalton Resortsdoesn’t disappoint. The 323 rooms are sleek and modern, there are seven restaurants to choose from, and not one but two swim-up pool bars get the party started early. The poolside atmosphere skews more South Beach than Caribbean, with a private area reserved for guests who’ve booked a cabana for the day (or week) and a separate glass-walled mermaid pool where you can stay dry while taking in underwater views.

3 Sanctuary Cap Cana by AlSol
This adults-only getaway ranks near the top of almost every Punta Cana all-inclusive list. All five pools are beautifully designed and maximize ocean views, the seafood restaurant is excellent, and romantic thatch-roofed villas or honeymoon suites all come with their own private plunge pools. Along with a dreamy white-sand beach setting, guests are also treated to beach bonfires, kayaking and, for something different, cooking and Spanish lessons.

4 Secrets Royal Beach Punta Cana
With a sugar-white beach as your backyard and lush vegetation everywhere, this luxury property offers a true Caribbean escape. Despite the size of this 460-room resort, an intimate, romantic feeling wins out at the restaurants, which range from Italian to Japanese to casual American. After days spent relaxing by the river pool or enjoying included activities like kayaking and sailing, try your luck at the on-site casino, then go for cocktails at one of 17 bars and lounges.

5 Catalonia Royal Bravo
At this Bavaro Beach hotel, guests can spend their days simply reading under a thatched umbrella on the hotel beach or swimming and snorkeling just offshore. If you’re here for a special occasion (or just want to indulge), spring for one of the luxurious two-story suites, which come with private infinity pools and gardens. There’s no shortage of restaurants on site, from vegetarian options and Southeast Asian fare to grilled seafood and tapas, all served with water views.

The Good Life of Golf in Punta Cana

Five days might not be enough to enjoy everything that Punta Cana offers us in the Dominican Republic. It is true. The endless panoramas to live a vacation accompanied by rounds of golf in outstanding fields may be insufficient, because it has to be the paradise where you are always amazed.

This year the Dominican Republic Golf Travel Exchange, the first and only marketing event that aims to consolidate golf in the Dominican Republic, gave us five days to live in first person the experience of sharing with the main tour operators, enjoy the secrets of Cap Cana Resort & Spa, visit in tours other luxury hotels and finally play a two-day tournament in epic fields such as Casa de Campo’s Teeth of the Dog and Cap Cana’s Punta Espada.

On the first day, with 70 international delegates, representing 35 tour operator companies, as well as 17 international media specializing in the golf industry, the event was inaugurated led by Mr. Teddy De Lara. The president of Target Marketing Consultors, the organizer of the event, confirmed that “in the last five years golf tourism in Dominican territory has grown by more than 45%, according to data released by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO) “.

The second day of this event allowed to participate in the seminar commanded by James J. Keegan and Kelly Fullford. The first, Top Ten Golf consultants, explained the reasons for success on golf courses. While Kelly, representative of GolfNow, addressed the development of golf trips in the world and specifically in the Caribbean.

The Secrets of Cap Cana Resort & Spa

As we said at the outset, five days may not be enough to enjoy all that this resort offers. After the seminar we had the opportunity to visit the Hoyo Azul and Zip Line, located no more than ten minutes from the hotel. Simply astonishing. The Hoyo Azul hides in the jungle to bathe in a natural pool displaced in a cave, whose depth is of 75 meters. The Zip Line is for the more daring, where a canopy circuit offers the experience of vertigo to observe the landscape of Cap Cana from the altitudes.

The Secrets Cap Cana Resort & Spa offers luxurious rooms with a complete view of the Caribbean Sea. The beach? A paradise. It is the garden of the hotel to give you complete relaxation with various services available. The bars also accompany you in this stay, having two on the beach and others installed in the swimming pool. What to say about the restaurants. Guests can choose from more than five different cultural options. A minor detail: If you stay at the hotel, all the benefits listed are included and what you get out of your wallet you only use to tip the good services of the employees.

Golf in Punta Cana.

During this stay in the DR Golf Travel Exchange 2017 two fields were played for the tournament: Teeth of Dog and Punta Espada. Also known as Dog’s Tooth, it is approximately 45 minutes from Cap Cana. The court is located inside another Luxury Resort: Casa de Campo. There they move three courts and if you have to choose one, that has to be Teeth of the Dog.

The course was designed by Peter Dye, acclaimed builder who has made Teeth of the Dog the No. 49 field of the leading American magazine Golf Magazine. Mainly the lifting of holes surrounded by the Caribbean sea make this field known. But, in fact, it goes beyond the landscape.

Dye built this course so that any golfer, from the lowest handicap to the highest handicap, can play it. This is because there are different games, making it challenging for the good and enjoyable for beginners. The fairways are wonderful, just like their greens whose entries are possibly the most complex of the course. Before reaching them, there are ripples that do not allow them to be pointed if you do not poke the ball inside the perimeter. A meter before and physics will do the same. As for the amenities, they are perfect. Adapt carts and, where possible, carry a caddy. This will make it much easier to return to enjoy it.

Punta Espada

Staying in Cap Cana, Punta Espada is the perfect court to play. It is only 10 minutes from the hotel. We are talking about a field designed and supervised by Jack Nicklaus. There is no question on why it is ranked number 76 in the world by Golf Digest. It is also surrounded by holes along the sea and its fairway is a delicacy, whose greens are the end point of a perfect course. Here, for example, a PGA Tour Champions tournament was hosted. No need to describe its characteristics, they speak for themselves and it’s for you to find out for yourself.

DR Golf Travel Exchange, along with the Ministry of Tourism, Secrets Cap Cana Resort & Spa, Casa de Campo Resort, Cap Cana, AlSol Hotels & Resorts, Punta Espada Golf Course, Scape Park and EITI DMC have made this great experience possible and where you can start programming yourself, thanks to the hospitable reception to guests provided by hotels
