NO AC, NO WIFI, UNBEARABLY HOT, MANY BUGS...DID NOT SLEEP AT ALL, had to find other place to stay and was very hard to do that. Manager was not welcoming at first. No help through the night. Haitian guard did not understand English or Spanish and we did not feel safe. Beach is violent, dangerous and unusable.

Small and coquette, Barefoot sits just minutes away from downtown Cabarete. What a great time I had!! I stayed at Barefoot for a few days during late April early May and the weather was amazing. Their friendly staff is very sweet and accommodating they made me feel right at home. My room was comfortable with a balcony facing the ocean... More

We spent 7 days at the barefoot beach including hosting our wedding there. At first glance the hotel has a certain "charm" you just don't find at most hotels. As you enter thru the large sliding doors you begin to see the true beauty of the hotel and its simplicity. The hotel has a homely feeling and the infinity pool... More

We spent 4 nights at Barefoot, after carefully researching our options in and around Cabarete. We opted for Barefoot because of the great reviews on TripAdvisor, and because we didn't want to be right downtown, yet still wanted beach access. Pros: Location - for us was a plus, although it is about 2km outside Cabarete proper. However, it has beach... More

I spent a wonderful week at the Barefoot Beach Pad in mid-December. It was my first time in Cabarete and was a great place to relax and forget about work. I stayed in the ocean front upstairs suite with two balconies, one overlooking the ocean and one above the pool, and couldn't have asked for more. The breeze blew through... More

I've been visiting Barefoot for the past 2 years now and I couldn't imagine a better place to spend my vacation days. I've also come to think of it as a home away from home and an awesome getaway from the stresses of life and work back in the states. It's tranquil, peaceful, friendly & attentive staff always make me... More

It has been only two weeks or so since I stayed at Barefoot Beach Pad, and I have yet to let go of the memories and intense desire to drop all life's responsibilities and return. The beauty of the location, the simplicity of the "pad" and the pure and humble kindness of the hosts will make you feel at home,... More
