do you appreciate friendly and helpful staff at all times and for many different needs? stay at hotel villa taina and you will be taken care of in an professional way and at the same time feel like beeing part of the big taina family. while some corners of the place get needed little make-overs, it is already a perfect place to relax, do water sports and spend time with books and friends. I specially liked the owners to be around daily and always in dialog with their guests about wind, kite technique and needs of the guests. Also I want to point out the perfect service provided by many of the taina staff. Nothing better to start or end a day in the restaurant or bar while being taken care of the young Russians Roman and Jenny, they are amazing!

Great location for windsurfing. My wife liked it too as a non-windsurfer because of the easy access to the beach. Good bar and restaurant and excellent and professionnal service by Roman and Jenny. They are the perfect mix of courtesy and kindness. They made us feel like family right from the start.

The hotel is located directly at the beach and close to restaurants and nightlife. Because it is not too big the atmosphere is very familiy-like and after a few days you know a lot of guests/staff by name. The restaurant has delicious and fresh food and offers specials throughout the week. In addition, the rooms are big and modern and the bed is very comfortable. The staff is always friendly and helpful. In the afternoon there is usually quite some action going on, Kitesurfing, Volleyball, Windsurfing and so on which is perfect to meet people.

As an active sportsman and dad of a young daughter, it was very important to find a safe place for our holiday, yet be able to do our sport. Thank you to Villa Taina who attributed to the most perfect holiday. Like they say - "Happy wife, Happy life" and my wife was certainly happy, as was I. The staff was most helpful and friendly, the room was clean and beautiful. The food excellent. The kiteschool, gum and equipment right there. I can't wait to do this again next December and look forward to another vacation with you!!!

It was very noisy after 4 pm as the front of hotel is full with locals and boys from Haiti who played volleyball . They are arrogant, entering private space and trying to sell illegal stuff to the tourists.It is a perfect location but no security as these people has been occupied the beach and embarrassed the guests . The room was perfect but everything is spoiled from the massive invasion from non hotel guests and the staff of the hotel do nothing to secure the privacy of the hotel guests. I do not recommend unless you like noise,screams and not decent behavior from the kite surfing staff.

Stopped by for a lunch. Had the club sandwich and a pizza. Both delicious. Had enough to take away for a second meal. Waitress was excellent. Facility was very clean. Felt totally safe. Sanitizer and temperature taken if entering the door seating.

This is a friendly, clean and charming property, with an exceptionally jovial and serviceable employee named Wendy. Villa Taina is centrally located in Cabarete Bay which is essentially a surf strip of beach front hotels/condo's, restaurants and surf schools. VT offers free bicycles rentals and a couple of workout machines, if you're looking for dry sports. Also be sure to inquire about local excursions to 27 waterfalls of Rio Damajagua; as well as a private driver to take you to some local points of interest such as Puerto Plata cable car (funicular), Casa de Oro chocolate factory, and San Felipe Fort. We used Jojim Tours, sent by the hotel to pick us up at the airport. It is an outstanding small family operation. Bring a sarong or wrap as the evenings can get cool.

Cabarete is one of our favorite places to visit while on Island. Decided to stay the night at Hotel Villa Taina. Room was clean and quiet. Very comfortable bed. Beach is within a few steps from your room. There’s a restaurant on site as well with very good prices. Parking is very limited but if you speak the the security guard he’ll hold a spot for you. Overall it was a quick stay, but very good. Highly recommended if you plan on hitting the beach 1-2 days. The pool is extremely cold. Their daily rate was a bit high which I wasn’t expecting due to the fact that Cabarete is veryyyy affordable. But worth the stay.

Had a nice stay at the hotel. We had a room on the fourth floor, won’t do that again. While the view was gorgeous it was tough retrieving things once we were down stairs and really only slept and showered in the room. We will choose downstairs next time and deal with weekend noise. Room was basic, bathroom didn’t provide toiletries, only a bar of soap, and gel in shower that was empty, so bring your own. Good shower pressure. Our electricity did go on and off a few times. Only two outlets in the room to use for charging, so might want to bring a charger with multiple plug ins. The coffeemaker which wasn’t cleaned, and lamps were not plugged in. WiFi worked well even on the beach. Location was perfect we could walk just about everywhere. Restaurant and bar were fabulous. Cons were -We have never stayed in a hotel where we couldn’t charge to the room. I guess we could open account at reception, which seemed odd to us, because charging to credit card for every meal and drink seemed like an added expense to them. Also beach towels had to be picked up at reception instead of close to the pool or beach. The vendors on the beach are relentless. I am surprised the owners let them on private property into the restaurant. It’s tiresome. We spent time at the pool to get some peace from them. Our safe in the room never worked. The instructions didn’t apply to our safe. However, nothing was stolen and we gave the hotel excellent because we loved the staff, cleanliness and location.
