Had a great stay at the Velero. We had booked on Expedia and for some reason they did not have our reservation. Fortunately the manager was there and eventually was able to give us the room that we had booked. She also included a free breakfast and late check out for our trouble. Very nice and unheard of here in... More

I went on vacation with a small group of friends and stayed at Velero Beach. We had an excellent time over there, the rooms have view on the ocean, are very clean and great value for your money. The pool is gorgeous, and this hotel is very well located in Cabarete, close to the action yet, still quiet and perfect... More

The Valero is located in a nice place overlooking Cabarete beach. The hotel doesn't have a beach but it has a beautiful view. After staying a week at Magnifico right next door, I have to say that Magnifico blew this hotel away and I'm so happy we didn't stay here very long. The Valero does have some great features hence...

Overall, this is a very nice hotel. The rooms are spacious with lovely sea-view balconies. The pool area is very attractive, right by the sea. There is a pleasant bar area, also by the sea. The staff are friendly and helpful. However, if I'm honest, the place is a little dated and tired compared to some of the newer hotels... More

The Velero is an Oasis in the otherwise dirty, noisy albeit entertaining third-world experience of Cabarete, DR. The grounds, rooms and pool are first class and the food is dependably delicious -- which is a relief to us as the off-campus restaurants are not as consistent and certainly do not have the perfect sea-side atmosphere of the Velero restaurant. The... More

I have stayed at Velero Beach Resort for the past 5 of my 7 trips to Cabarete. I would definitely go back, and recommend it to others. The grounds and pool area are very well kept, the meals served at the surf-side restaurant are delicious. Breakfast is included is some room reservations, so be sure to inquire. With free WiFi,...

This hotel has it all, great pool, excellent service, great food in the hotel restaurant and very close to everything (grocery store, restaurants, bars etc). Our family had one member suffer an accident while in the Dominican Republic and the hotel made everything so amazing for us. They provided rooms when we needed extra nights, they reserved the big bed... More

In summary The Velero Beach is/has family friendly, relaxing, quiet, accommodating staff, a fabulous infinity pool, great restaurant food and accommodation that was perfect for us with a baby and 2 year old. This hotel is run extremely well by Diane who can often be seen walking around the Velero Beach with Scooby, the family friendly dog, in close pursuit.... More

The beachfront setting and pool is gorgeous, there is free wifi, and the rooms generously sized, with full kitchens and a safe, and are cleaned daily. What I loved most of all was that the poolside cabanas and lounge chairs did not fill up (and this may have been because the hotel wasn't fully booked); there was always a place... More

Had a fabulous time. Beautiful views, great beaches, great people. Great food. Windsurfing, kite surfing, standing paddle board, or just relaxing by the Infiniti pool, with the beach view as your back drop. Getting massages outdoor with the sea breeze and ocean air put me in a Zen like mood. Highly recommend this for anyone who is looking to get... More
