The Magnifico is a beautiful place with wonderful simplicity. We stayed in building 5 in the penthouse and the views and rooftop deck were just amazing. The unit was cleaned every day and the unit had good air conditioning in the bed rooms and hot water. The swimming pool is inland but really nice. We enjoyed our afternoons there after... More

Arguably the best place to stay in Cabarete. The grounds are just beautiful and meticulously cared for, rooms are clean and well appointed, staff is friendly but unobtrusive. The location could not be any better; 50 yards from the supermarket and main road, 5 minute walk to the main part of town, right on the water with a small beach... More

The next day we went to dinner alone and came back home, heres where it gets crazy. My friend went to his room and came running out saying someone was in... More

My wife, daughter, cousin and I stayed at El Magnifico for 9 days early August 2014. We split the time of our vacation between the penthouse of building number 6 and the penthouse of building number 5. They offer their own unique style and flavor. Building number 6 has a modern look and feel and has 5 terraces including a... More

This Hotel has grounds that are simply magical. The stone work (paths, steps, and walls) are simply beautiful and the lush gardens that surround the walk ways and encompass the grounds of the hotel are meticulously cared for and give the whole area a very tropical feel. There is a small pool, a hot tub with a secluded feel and... More

This time I brought family and friends down (18 total), for a surprise birthday trip for mom..From the time we pulled into the parking space we were showered with service.. Help... More

This was our second trip to Cabarete and Hotel El Magnifico. Both times in Unit 4. This is a sizable one bedroom, 1 1/2 bath suite. It's a little dated and the bed is hard as a rock, but very clean and a great value for the money. The hotel is delightful. It is located around the point to the... More

My husband and I first stayed at Hotel El Magnifico in 2001 and came back every year until we got married right in front of the hotel on the beach in 2004. We loved it for the same reasons as mentioned in other reviews: super responsive and friendly staff, beautiful and perfectly maintained accommodations and grounds, close enough to the... More

Wellmaintained facility, nice not too big buildings with appropriate (not luxury, but good enough) apartments and an extraordinary beautiful garden. The staff is great, really friendly and helpful. It's quiet and you feel safe, the beach is fantastic and not far away, many nice restaurants located at the beach. And a supermarket is just round the corner. On the more... More
