“Ideal setting for families and young children”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We had a wonderful time during our stay at Cadaques Caribe resort. If you are looking for a beautiful, laid back, family-friendly resort, this is the place for you. There were always enough loungers on the beach and near the pool. Some parts of the beach were a little rocky, but if you go in near the pier, there is a nice sandy patch there where the kids loved to swim. The water is nice and calm. Our 7-year old and 5-year old would run all the way down the pier, enter the water from the stairs and swim to shore without a problem. There is also a trampoline and swing set on the beach for the kids to play on.

We stayed in a 2-bedroom/2-bathroom apt. with a full kitchen. We cooked many of our meals in the room (just easier than eating out with our kids every night.) Our building was close to the lobby and our view was of the pool and water park. You can pay to have internet service although it was slow. The room was very clean and the cleaning staff was very nice. The staff in the lobby speak English and are very accommodating. Rafael, in particular provided us with excellent service. When we called the resort before our arrival, he helped us secure our room on the top floor (per our request) and also helped facilitate a van to pick us up from the airport and drive us back upon our return. The van service was $120 to the hotel and $100 back, using the same driver. Rafael went above and beyond to make sure that we had a wonderful time at the resort.

We ate at the hotel restaurant a few times. We enjoyed our dinner both times, and the kids loved the pizza. We also tried the breakfast buffet and loved that too. There is another pool right outside the restaurant that we were able to use for the first few days, but then it was closed for renovation. It was not a problem, since we had the beautiful beach and larger pool and water park to use. The water park is not open all of the time, but if you plan your day around it, it works out nicely. Our kids really had a great time there.

The resort is situated next to a national reserve so there can be mosquitoes. Be prepared and bring bug spray. If you use it, you will be fine. There is also a small store on the premises where you can buy water, milk, bug spray, and other snack/food items.

Overall, we had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend the resort.

Thank you for your comments, they'll be handled to our General Manager for his consideration, specially concerning the great service provided by Rafael. We are currently making improvements to our WI-Fi service, and regarding the bug issue it depends on the season but our hotel is daily fumigated to minimise the situation. We are glad you had a wonderful time and we'll be more than happy to have you and you family again with us in the future. ¡Hasta pronto!

Had a great time!

Check in was fairly simple; after a silght delay on check-in, it was awesome to find out the delay was because staff wanted to give me a complimentary upgrade (as a vauled Hotels.com gold card member) .

My daughter loved the pool for kids! Thanks for that park because she used all her energy at the pools.

The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Great space. Good , glass wall showers. Full kitchen. Wi-fi is an extra fee

Relaxed on the beach at night with my girlfriend. Very safe . Tried out the itailan restaurant for a quick lunch before leaving. It didn't impress me but those wrking there were great.

Room Tip: Can't lose, great team here

We had a great time at this resort. It was a great property and we would not hesitate to stay here again. The pool area was amazing and the views of the ocean was terrific. If you are looking for a party place, this isn't it; however, if you want your space and not have people on top of you like most resorts, this is the place.

I rated it as a 4 due to the fact that the beach, though beautiful, isn't as good as the pictures make it appear(a little rocky). And the beach chairs/beds were awesome but lacked cushions, therefor, if you layed out on them long you get a little uncomfortable. Also, our apartment was located close to the beach, Wifi was almost non existant unless you were within 100 meters from the office, so you had to go to the office to check emails etc.

Thank you for your comments, they'll be handled to our General Manager for his consideration. We apologise for the rocks in our beach entrance, but this changes due to weather conditions and we do our best in keeping our sand clean. We are glad you had a wonderful time with us and we'll be more than happy to receive you again in the future. ¡Hasta pronto!

The hotel is good overall, it is a little boring for my taste, it has a small water park which consists of 4-5 slides (2 big ones). It works on certain hours.

The pool is always empty (and boring too), so I would say this hotel is for resting, if you would like to go to a quite place and rest but don't entertain yourself this could be a place.

The beach is not good at all, it has a lot of rocks on the bottom so no puffy sand, also full f sea plants.

What we made good of it?, We went walking all the way to the border of the beach (out side the hotel property limits), we walked and explored many new things, my wife and kids enjoyed discovering new things (this is not provided by the hotel, we went on our own), so between this, a little of beach soccer and the 3-5 water slides we had a good time.

The hotel has only one restaurant and another which is private, you can get tired of the food!!!.

This hotel is NOT "all inclusive".

I wouldn't visit it again, as we had to find our own activities and it was outside the hotel.

Part of the staff has little experience, so it gets hard to get things (restaurant, the check in staff -- oufff --- the worst)

But if you would like to a quite place as I said at the beginning you can consider it. I would not recommend the hotel.

Room Tip: Try to get a room next to the restaurant (they are normally close to the beach too), you will be clo...

stayed here during slow season the hotel is really nice and good amenities they don't push excursions on you. The water park is really nice for kids and also on the private beach they have a play area. its a really nice place to walk at night on the deck.

As long as you do not expect much, then this resort is perfect! It has a wonderful, secluded location and presents itself well. Then, well, don't expect things to work or the water slides to be open for the kids. You will be disappointed. We stayed in the villas and upon arrival found that it was not possible to lock the doors or windows to the villa. The staff response - it is safe here!

Well, I am not comfortable sleeping on the first level of a resort and not being able to secure the villa. We found a maintenance person ourselves and had the unit secured. Then the shower was hardly more than a trickle, the oven did not work, limiting our cooking to stove top or micro wave. I was very disappointed in how poorly kept the inside of the villas were. We did rent from airbnb so it was a private owner. This could have played a part in our experience however, I would expect that the resort would have some quality controls.

Cadaques is a great place to travel with family and kids. There is great space in the hotel with playgrounds and pools. My one year old loved it. There is also water slides on the sea for bigger kids. The beach in front of the hotel is not good (full of rocks) but there is a pier with sunbeds that are perfect. The only problem is the service. The staff is not very friendly and it can take you 20 minutes to get a beer at the restaurant near the beach. One more thing: do not book day trips (isla Saona or parasailing, for instance) at the hotel. They offered a day trip to Saona island for 80 dollars (saying it was an exclusive one) and we managed to do it for 30 dollars! Just go to Bayahibe downtown and ask for better prices.
