Hi. Recently stayed at the Velero for a week with my girlfriend. This was my 2nd visit and I was very happy with the resort (again). Great location, great service and good value for money. I find it hard to fault the resort, clean, tidy, safe and friendly. Looking forward to my 3rd visit. Thanks to all the staff at... More

My family and I stayed here for about a week. We were very happy throughout our stay. We had beautiful ocean views, incredible weather and met some great people. The staff was always friendly and helpful. The sunsets are amazing to watch from your room or a cabana near the pool. We enjoyed the quiet of the hotel while only... More

I had the pleasure of staying at Velero Beach Resort this past May and I really enjoyed my time there. The room, the views and the staff were all wonderful. I ate several times at the resort's restaurant and was never disappointed. I can see why VBR is one of the best places to stay in Cabarete.

I booked up to 25 rooms at Velero Beach Resort for my wedding week and Velero Beach Resort, Ted, and the entire staff and restaurant, were amazing! Not only were they overly-accommodating, but were patient, kind and did everything to meet our needs. The restaurant, especially Oscar, was spectacular! It is the most breathtaking place for a large group, small... More

Just got back from a six day stay which was very relaxing. Location is one of the best features, we were able to walk down the beach to all the nightlife and restaurants. The manager changed our rooms when the air was not working and made sure we were happy. We wish there would have been more poolside service but... More

Beautiful but small enough for personal touch. Pool sparkles and is right above beach but good security eliminates the peddlers. Wonderful staff, good rooms with great views, good restaurant, too. Must visit if you are going to Dominican Republic. Ask for Ted.

My wife and I just spent a week here and I couldn't be happier with this hotel! What a beautiful property and location, and the staff were all very friendly and fun to chat with. The pool area overlooking the beach is incredible, plus it is isolated from beach vendors trying to sell trinkets. The food/drinks at the restaurant were... More

Stayed at the Velero Beach Hotel the last two weeks of May. The weather was ideal and the hotel absolutely perfect: great/friendly service and great restaurant. The suite overlooked the infinity pool and a very private beach. The hotel sits at the end of Cabarete's mile long beach which is full of summertime activities by day and restaurants at night....

This is the 3rd time I've stayed here. I cannot imagine a better place and a better value in Cabarete. On my other trips I have been told by locals that Velero Beach Resort is the best place in Cabarete to stay, and I see why. This time I am staying in one of the penthouses, which is smartly configured... More

We rented a Junior suit 121. As we entered, floor was dirty and un-swept, unwashed. I like clean things, so I checked beds and bathroom: Hairs on bed pillows [at least not on the sheets, I guess these were changed and clean]. Hairs also seen on the white bathroom sink area. Bath was a half bath in height and sadly... More

Hello Eileen, You, as a local Cabarete resident have surprised us with your review of Velero. Yes it is a great place to get away from the mad scramble Cabarete becomes during Easter weekend. Of the myriad of places to stay in Cabarete, and you know most of them, you chose Velero. Surely for a reason. We will continue to... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Velero Beach Resort was the first luxury Cabarete hotel to be built and the visionary architect chose the best location on the entire beach to build. Our grounds are sheltered from the wind for the non-windsurfers, but 5 meters into the water the windsurfer or kiter will have access to the trade winds. Velero Beach Resort is the only one of the Cabarete hotels to have a small reef right out front that forms shallow tidal pools at low tide. These are perfect for the toddlers to play in protected from the waves. Our restaurant is also the only one in Cabarete that is directly on the water for perfect sunsets! ... more   less
