Looking for quality service from dedicated staff? This is the place to go. The rooms are excellent and ideally located near the beach - however you may here noise coming from other rooms... The Villa is ideally located close to Cabarete's restaurants without being too close to be disturbed by the nightlife. The breakfast buffet is good. If you are there two weeks you'll want to explore other breakfast alternatives. The happy hour is quite delightful and everything you need is within reach. The beach offers easy access to chairs ideally located, top windsurfing school and proximity to most everything. When you step out the front enterance, you are right at the heart of Cabarete and when you step out the other way a beautiful resort atmosphere awaits. The pool is small, but most people are at the ocean anyways. Morning yoga with instructor weekly - the massage therapist is fabulous, however there are MANY VENDORS, which are respectful to NO GRACIA, yet bothersome!!! Overall, very pleased and we would go there again!

Room Tip: If you don't mind a bit of noise coming from beach and bar select ocean front. If you want absol...

Located practically on the beach, this hotel is close to everything you'll need while you stay in Cabarete. Walking distance to all restaurants. ( it has a restaurant on premises- the food was great) shops and water sports schools. It is clean and quiet, even though is close to the main street( you'll never know it). It is simple, clean and well maintained. There is a small fridge in the room and free wifi. The room is well air-conditioned and safe. Shortly, highly recommended for all ( families, singles and couples)including families with small children.

Room Tip: There are hair dryers in the bathrooms shampoo and conditioner , no liquid soap just a bar.

Great stuff, location, breakfast at the beach, ocean beach with kite and wind surfing equipment. The best shopping and restaurant areas are within 5 minutes walk. Rooms have a flat TV, air conditioner, balcony, and a safe. Everything very clean, feels new and pleasant. Can recommend this place without reservations.

Room Tip: Rooms on the ocean side are quieter.

super friendly staff, nice food, rooms but the most importantly location: on the beach, one can sleep hearing the sound of the waves, relax and do a lot of sports if he/she wants. can walk to all the restaurants and cafes from the beach - no need to even see a street if want to be completely secluded.

This hotel was perfect for 2 weeks in May for my husband and myself (retired) visiting our son who lives in cabarete. Having had a flood in our room on the first night due to the weather, we were upgraded to a beautiful room on the front. It was always spotless and the staff were lovely. No need for shoes to walk onto the beach and bars and restaurants!!

Room Tip: we had an ocean comfort room which was fabulous - 2 large double beds, fan abd air con.

The staff is super friendly. Everything was taken care of professionally. Beach was beautiful and amazing bar. I was able to go with several friends during Semana Santa (wholly week) and we all had a blast. Tons of beach parties and music all day and night long. Avoid going with kids during this time. A lot of young people running around.

The staff at the hotel are extremely friendly and helpful. I stayed for 6 nights and I wasn't really in the hotel much since I booked a couple of excursions. Sergio assisted me with booking the Magic mushroom trip which was awesome! A must go for the adventurer. The location of the hotel is excellent. You are in the heart of cabarete without having to deal with the loud music. I love cabarete as I don't feel as if I am in one of those huge resorts. You are able to mingle with the locals and I personally enjoy that. The rooms are extremely clean as well as the rest of the hotel. I didn't give the hotel 5 stars for my only pet peeve was how hard the beds were. I guess people really don't go to sleep when in Cabarete. Despite not being all inclusive the hotel offers breakfast and food around the town as well as the hotel is not pricey. This was truly an inexpensive and fun vacation. The beach at night is gorgeous. I may make this my February break trip every year.

Additionally I visited Cayo levantado (Paradise Island) and the 27 Charcos ... I recommend these excursions, in all I had an awesome time. Sosua is nearby and I enjoyed snorkeling there as well. Rio San Juan is not far and offers some awesome activities as well.

Room Tip: There is not fitness center but almost everyone who goes to Cabarete is involved in some type of sur...
