“Velero Beach is "The Must" place to stay”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

I am currently staying for 2 weeks at the Velero Beach (due to leave in the middle of next week). The hotel is located in the centre of Cabarete, so you can pretty much walk to everywhere. Local amenities (supermarket, chemist, restaurants) are all between 5 to 10 mns of the hotel. I was bowled over by the kindness of hotel guests who also shared various places to visit around. The hotel manager checks on the guests frequently to ensure everything is running smoothly. The staff is friendly and helpful at all time. I am receiving a VIP treatment.
You can also watch the sun set right from the hotel scene. In the evenings, you can enjoy a great social life by going out to eat along the beach. You will be spoiled for choices.
I am already planning on coming back.

This is the about the 9th time that I have stayed at the Velero Beach Resort. There are so many great things about this hotel. The rooms are always clean and well kept. The location is fantastic. It is right on the beach. You are within walking distance to downtown and grocery store. The grocery store carries everything that you might need. There is no unnecessary noise. The staff is very polite and professional. The parking is private and enclosed so there are no worries about your car. They have a gym if you need to work out. The grounds and landscaping are beautiful. The hotel restaurant has very good food and the service is good. WiFi is available, plus you can plug into the wall too. I will stay here again and again.

This hotel is nicely situated between the main street and the beach. It was easy to find when we arrived and the staff was great. Our room was clean and exactly what we expected from the photos I saw before arriving. Having the beach, pool and restaurant at easy access made the accommodations perfect in such a cute surf town in Dominican Republic. I plan to visit again and Velero is my hotel in Cabarete.

Velero Hotel is my number one choice for a "staycation" (I live in Cabarete). The views are the best along Cabarete beach. The staff at the restaurant are warm and highly personable, as are all hotel staff. I recommend taking advantage of the happy hour specials while sitting along the water to watch the sunset. The hotel property is private and serene, and the waterfront pool is picturesque. The hotel is conveniently located next to one of Cabarete's most exquisite dining experiences (Otra Cosa) as well as the local supermarket. Highly recommended for visitors and Cabarete residents alike!

Velero is a wonderful hotel! We stayed here April 20th through April 30th for our destination wedding and our guests stayed here as well. The rooms were comfortable, clean and the views are awesome! The hotel is very pretty ... lots of beautiful plants, wonderful pool, cabana beds, and the view can't be beat! You can walk to town from the hotel either on the road or on the beach and it's just minutes from all the action! Everyone at the hotel was wonderful and I highly recommend visiting the Velero. Thank you to all the staff at the front desk ... any question or need was responded to immediately. The front desk made all of our guests feel welcome. They have someone at the front of the hotel keeping a watchful eye on the hotel and there is someone by the beach making sure only hotel guests enter the Velero. Special thank you to Omar! You took great care of us ... from booking the trips for us, to keeping our leftover wedding alcohol cool, finding us a cooler for our extra beer, the list goes on... you're an awesome host! Thank you also to Ted, (hotel manager) you also took great care of our guests... thank you for the artwork... what a nice wedding gift! Thank you helping us with our friend and making sure everyone was comfortable. Thank you to Frank and Luigi in the bar... we enjoyed visiting with you and you guys took good care of us too ... can't beat poolside service! Also, thank you for getting my mother-in-law a birthday cake for her while we were there ... that was a great cake and she felt very special! Cabarete is a cool town and the hotel is the place to stay. This time of year was also a great time to visit ... the weather was perfect ... good temperature, no rain, few clouds. Thank you for making our special week so perfect! Please give Scooby a hug for us!

Room Tip: I would suggest getting a suite ... they're a little bigger and they have a kitchen. Janet'...

You will not find a better place anywhere in Cabarete period. The staff is great from the front desk, to the manager, to the bar and kitchen, security, maintenance....all are top notch. They all work very hard to do their jobs, and they all do them very well. Omar at the front desk helped with whatever we wanted, and I do mean whatever...Ted the manager couldn't have been more kind or generous...Luigi in the bar was very friendly and attentive...Rafael in maintenance helped with our safe immediately when it was broken and also helped with a friend that was handicapped...These are the few that really stood out but everyone else was just as great...As you can tell they really did feel like they were family by the end of the trip. The facility itself is very well maintained and has phenomenal views of the ocean. It is far enough away from the town that you don't have the constant noise of everything, but close enough that everything is still very, very convenient. (It's about a 3 minute walk to the town) Thanks to everyone at Valero for making our trip unforgettable!!!

what a great spot the Velero Beach Hotel is. Located in one of the best water sport locations anywhere this place is clean, safe, friendly and convenient. Fantastic views overlooking Caberete Bay make this place a great spot for a family retreat. The staff all go out of their way to be friendly and helpful. owners in residence make one feel welcome and seem genuinely interested in seeing that one enjoys all that Cabarete has to offer including recommendations on activities and dining
from a locals perspective. I highly recommend this property when considering a beach vacation
in Cabarete.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Velero Beach Resort was the first luxury Cabarete hotel to be built and the visionary architect chose the best location on the entire beach to build. Our grounds are sheltered from the wind for the non-windsurfers, but 5 meters into the water the windsurfer or kiter will have access to the trade winds. Velero Beach Resort is the only one of the Cabarete hotels to have a small reef right out front that forms shallow tidal pools at low tide. These are perfect for the toddlers to play in protected from the waves. Our restaurant is also the only one in Cabarete that is directly on the water for perfect sunsets! ... more   less
