We went there for our aniversary, the place is beautiful and everyone was really helpful, they even provided a "baby bed" for our baby. Highly recommended if you are looking for a beautiful place to stay.

The Magnifico is a beautiful place with wonderful simplicity. We stayed in building 5 in the penthouse and the views and rooftop deck were just amazing. The unit was cleaned every day and the unit had good air conditioning in the bed rooms and hot water. The swimming pool is inland but really nice. We enjoyed our afternoons there after... More

Arguably the best place to stay in Cabarete. The grounds are just beautiful and meticulously cared for, rooms are clean and well appointed, staff is friendly but unobtrusive. The location could not be any better; 50 yards from the supermarket and main road, 5 minute walk to the main part of town, right on the water with a small beach... More

My wife, daughter, cousin and I stayed at El Magnifico for 9 days early August 2014. We split the time of our vacation between the penthouse of building number 6 and the penthouse of building number 5. They offer their own unique style and flavor. Building number 6 has a modern look and feel and has 5 terraces including a... More

This Hotel has grounds that are simply magical. The stone work (paths, steps, and walls) are simply beautiful and the lush gardens that surround the walk ways and encompass the grounds of the hotel are meticulously cared for and give the whole area a very tropical feel. There is a small pool, a hot tub with a secluded feel and... More

This was our second trip to Cabarete and Hotel El Magnifico. Both times in Unit 4. This is a sizable one bedroom, 1 1/2 bath suite. It's a little dated and the bed is hard as a rock, but very clean and a great value for the money. The hotel is delightful. It is located around the point to the... More

My husband and I first stayed at Hotel El Magnifico in 2001 and came back every year until we got married right in front of the hotel on the beach in 2004. We loved it for the same reasons as mentioned in other reviews: super responsive and friendly staff, beautiful and perfectly maintained accommodations and grounds, close enough to the... More
