We spent 8 days in February at the Casa Maravilla. We travelled with 9 kids - ages 8-16, 5 - late 30/40 somethings and 5 - 60-70 year olds for a total of 19 guests. We hired the small car and driver package and paid for the upcharge for the cook (Mayla) to stay and cook us dinners instead of... More

We have stayed the 2nd time in this wonderful and very special Dominican beach hotel. As we enjoyed it so much last year, we decided to go back! It is special in the way, that you can choose if you want to stay in "normal" rooms or more of the adventurous (luxury) "treehut-feeling" rooms-whatever suits your needs! The staff is... More

Open air bungalows perfect for a break from the air conditioned hotels of tropical islands. Friendly service, friendly security and homemade breakfast. Private beach just steps from the bungalow. Less than 5 minute drive into town if renting a car or taxi service very easy to call as well. Would definitely stay again if ever in Cabarete! Neighbors with the... More

I didn't stay here so I can't comment on how the place looks. I'm sure that it is a lovely place to stay. We made a booking for the whole place and than canceled that booking due to lack of communication from the other. After we canceled the owner began to harass us, threatened to sue, and threatened to have... More

I will be happy to come back there one day again. Some people mentioned that Mark is rude, bad and etc… but he is very nice person, I think you were not lucky... More

Be careful reserving here! I had a reservation booked for two months and the day before I was leaving I got an email from a person named Mark Bautin whom I've never met or spoke with. The email said "call Me". Hospitality is not his strong point for this man. I called and he said rudely you can't stay at... More

Just back from this incredible place and still full of vibrant memories we couldn't wait to share. We (a family of 5, three teenagers) stayed for ten days at the "Bohio de Playa", the bi-level open air cabana(a bohio is a beach cabana usually made of palm fronds) which was the superb equivalent of "camping on the beach" with the...

My wife and I came here for a 5-day getaway from the NYC winter and overall we really enjoyed our stay. Our first impression upon arrival was very positive. However the longer we stayed the less we enjoyed it, as unfortunately this B&B has several serious flaws that should be considered before staying here. But first the positives: - It's... More
