I had a great time on my trip to Cabarete with my two best friends.
Cabarete is a beautiful beach - whether it's morning, afternoon, or night (at night, it's best to walk in 3s, and I would say it's very reminiscent of Beyonce's 'Drunk In Love' music video). Yes, it gets really windy and the waves might consume you (lost my sunglasses (it's ok, they were $5)), but compared to the current frigid temperatures in New York, we all didn't really give a sh.
Anyway, the resort..
The resort lobby sometimes has wifi, sometimes doesn't.
Front Desk: "maybe tomorrow."
We shared the 10 hour wifi for $15.
Notable food observations:
We craved the pizza every day - had it as a snack, had it with dinner. Always.
Good salads with a nice variety.
Orange-colored icecream = supposed to be creamsicle-flavored? = tastes like medicine
From the dessert section, it was always a hit or miss. Mostly miss.
Fruit isn't that sweet. It's okay.
..Overall, it does the job if you're hungry.
We made the bad choice in drinking too much at the beach bars our first night (they're so much fun! Great great music to dance to) so we never really experimented with the alcoholic drinks at the resort.
However, I can say that if you are a religious coffee drinker like I am, order the cafe con leche at the bar.
The interior design definitely needs an upgrade - but it was fine.
Hot shower? Ha. The one time I got a warmer-than-lukewarm (not hot) shower was at 9AM one morning. It was glorious at the time, but I was yet again disappointed the following evening. So..so cold.
There were always mosquitos in our room. One kept biting my friend while she was sleeping one night. It kind of sucked we had to sleep with insect repellant on.
On our last day there, there was a centipede that crawled onto a towel. Awesome times.
Weak toilet (tmi, but seriously..).
2 large towels for 3 people. You do the math.
Dude at the towel desk definitely gives you the stink-eye if you don't bring it by 5:30PM. Seriously?
The other staff are very friendly and always smiling.
Resort is mostly targeted for families/kids.
Don't get anything at the souvenir tables near the pool at night. They tried to sell me 5 magnets for $65. Oh, these magnets aren't made of gold?
All in all, I would say this resort does the minimum.
