I can’t even begin to sing enough praise for this place. We wanted to have a wedding in Cabarete. We had never been there, but with it being the adventure capitol of the DR it sounded like a nice location for us. After reading some really great reviews for the Velero, I emailed them to ask if they organized weddings. They do not, but Diane the manager gave me the name of a very talented wedding coordinator in the area (who we hired to plan our wedding). This began our wonderful relationship with the Velero.
The wedding was awesome and everything was just perfect and the Velero was there to help us with anything we needed along the way. Diane was very helpful in arranging rooms and special accommodations for everyone before the wedding. We even had guests who had booked a room in Puerto Plata, but after driving in the DR realized they wanted to be closer to the wedding activities and the Velero happily accommodated them with no notice. The property itself is really beautiful and the room (a junior suite) was very nice and exactly what we needed for our 10 days in Cabarete. It was very convenient to have a kitchen (I love to cook) and we are able to have breakfasts and dinners in our room and the housekeeping staff always did our dishes (we became very spoiled). The pool area is also a really great place to relax with nice ocean views and those super comfy beds + the bar takes really good care of you.
Besides the Velero being very nice, super close to a grocery store, great views…they really excel at customer service. All the staff was extremely gracious towards us and our guests that stayed at the Velero and even to the guests who came to visit who were not staying at the Velero. They helped us with many of our wedding needs and everything else (arranging shuttles for guests from/to the airport and excursions, getting stuff to our wedding coordinator, and telling us to relax and enjoy ourselves). The hotel is also very secure without seeming like you are locked down. I think this is because the staff knows all the guests. We were sad to leave and if we return to Cabarete we would definitely stay at the Velero again.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Velero Beach Resort was the first luxury Cabarete hotel to be built and the visionary architect chose the best location on the entire beach to build. Our grounds are sheltered from the wind for the non-windsurfers, but 5 meters into the water the windsurfer or kiter will have access to the trade winds. Velero Beach Resort is the only one of the Cabarete hotels to have a small reef right out front that forms shallow tidal pools at low tide. These are perfect for the toddlers to play in protected from the waves. Our restaurant is also the only one in Cabarete that is directly on the water for perfect sunsets! ... more less
