Just returned from an AWESOME vacation at Kite Beach Hotel and my only disappointment is that I wasn't able to stay longer.
Contrary to some of the reviews I have read here, the ENTIRE staff went out of their way to make sure we were happy, and did an amazing job of making us feel welcome and addressing our every need with a smile. The gem of this hotel is Janina, who greeted us immediately upon arrival and made sure we were happy with our accomodations. As other reviews have mentioned, she made herself available any time we needed advice, and recommended several excursions (Blue Moon restaurant in the mountains, canyoning - a MUST DO). She selflessly ensured our every need was met with a smile and sweetness that shows she truly loves her job - a rare quality these days!
The hotel serves a nice breakfast every morning included in the room cost and we found it to be more than adequate - fresh local fruit and eggs cooked to order with an array of add-ins if desired. Coffee and juices were great.
Rooms are nicely appointed and cleaned very well daily and are more than adequate for the price. Beds are firm, in-room AC worked well and the furniture was comfortable. But we didn't spend much time in our room other than to sleep, as the allure of Cabarete is a unique international crowd drawn to some of the best kiting in the world, and if you venture out, the most lush and breathtaking scenery I have ever seen coupled with friendly people. Kite Beach Hotel is well situated to experience all of that. As a bonus we got first class treatment from this awesome staff who helped in every way possible to make our trip unforgettable.
For a few pesos, the local kids are helpful if you want help with your kiting gear. We took advantage of this - our gear was readied daily and you were kiting minutes after stepping foot on the beach.
I will be returning as soon as possible, and plan to bring my entire family with me.
