We stayed at the beautiful Velero Resort and thoroughly enjoyed the space. While it is not a luxurious hotel, it is beautiful and met all our expectations. We rented a 3 bedroom suite as our adult children were staying with us. It had a roomy common space complete with dining table for eight and a big sectional in the living... More

A very nice hotel at a good location in Cabarete just at the beach. It is the second time we visit this hotel and we just had to come back. A few minutes walk from the center of the village. If you stay at the hotel pool or beach you will avoid the instant questions from the locals that want... More

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
