“Beautiful evening in a storybook setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Loved our evening at Castle Club, atop the beautiful hills of the Dominican Republic. The hills of the D.R. are unique and breathtaking. We really felt like we were in a storybook! The castle is a gorgeous open-air interpretation of middle-ages splendor. I can think of no better site for a wedding!

Hosts Doug and Marguerite served delicious shrimp and clam appetizers, followed by pizzas baked in an outdoor oven they built themselves! Perfect green salads were made from their garden-grown kale. The leaves were so delicious and tender. Dessert was chocolate mousse with a non-dairy version that was amazing!!!!!

Could not believe we were just 20 min. from bustling cabarete. This is a great alternative to the restaurant scene! Not to be missed. Sadly, we forgot our cameras that evening!!!!

“Thrills everyone we bring there! A night to Remember!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

We have been going to this incredible place for 10 years and have share this amazing place with so many. We even had our wedding party there which was one of the most memorable events that our guests can remember. Doug and Margarete are such gracious hosts, The Sunsets are amazing and the food, delightful. If you are looking for an adventurous night out, this would be the place to go. Don't miss going if you are in the area...LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!

“Beautiful setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

My husband and I just returned from our vacation to Cabarete; I surprised him and took him to Castle Club for a special anniversary dinner. The setting was just as TA travellers had explained...absolutely breathtaking. Doug and Marguerite Beers have opened their beautiful home up to travellers looking for a unique dining experience. Their home is almost like a castle, and perched atop a lush green hill in the mountains of Cabarete. We so enjoyed sipping our wine and dining in such an amazing setting. It was certainly a very memorable experience and we'd highly recommend it to other travellers.

“Unforgettable Mountaintop Dining Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Just got back from a Christmas Week trip to Cabarete with a group of 16 to celebrate my sister-in-laws 50th. We chose the Castle Club as the location for our celebration dinner based on past experiences with Doug and Marguerite - they did not disappoint! On a picture perfect evening the views were jaw-dropping, the atmosphere warm and inviting and the food delectable. The Castle Club is Cabarete's special occasion dining location - it is actually a private home that is opened to group's on an advance reservation basis. It is an experience so satisfying and unique that it will bring a smile to even the most jaded travelers face!
I highly recommend taking the time to book in advance and bask in the serenity of their home and the surrounding mountains as well as to enjoy the great food and wine! For what they provide it is a bargain!!

“Great setting and wonderful hosts but terribly overpriced.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

Castle club is certainly a unique experience and offers guests fantastic views across the north coast in a beautiful rustic setting, however this cannot justify the hefty price tag. The food is only just above average and we could not help feeling like we were left convalescing from open wallet surgery on our departure.
