this was our honeymoon and we knew only what was on the interweb of this hotel. took a chance and were so happy with it! the staff are some of the nicest and helpful people we found all week in cabarete. i think thats saying something considering all the dominicans we interacted with throughout the week were awesome. the room was cozy, but we knew that going in.we were out and about all week, so we only needed a shower and a bed. it was clean, comfortable, and the a/c worked great. being the only americans in the hotel, we had no problem communicating with any of the staff as our spanish was nonexistent, but they helped us learn fast. breakfast everyday was fantastic. everything is so fresh. our morning waiter(cookie), yes, that is his name made our trip. the nicest man in the entire country, i think. even when he wasn't working, he was on the beach enjoying this place with us. can't say enough good things about the staff.the conditions right on the beach in front of the hotel are as good as they get in cabarete. the rental gear at the surf shop was decent as was the staff. rulf took awesome care of us and nathan was an incredible kite instructor. three hours from never kiting(i windsurf)to on the water. i like to add that even though there was a language barrier, juan (security) was another we will never forget. he was always concerned that we were having a great time, even if it was with sign language or drawing in the sand to communicate. so awesome. the guests seem to be mostly european(german/french) at least for our stay, and they were great too. we will be back, so don't change a thing!
