“Great long-term stay.......”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2012

I stayed at Casa Blanca for 4 months this year (Jan. to April) in studios G and F. I liked both studios but preferred Studio F as it was a little bigger and had a sitting area with bay windows overlooking the pool. William and Dorohy (owners) were always friendly and very tolerant (lucky for me as I misplaced my keys on a couple of late nights etc.) and invited me out with them and their friends on more than one occasion. The rooms were kept clean thanks to Rita (maid) and any minor issues (i.e. lightbulbs, batteries for remote etc.) were taken care of immediately. I fould the grounds to to well kept in the internal courtyard and around the pool which was always clean. The small restaurant attached to the hotel was very handy on more than one accasion as was the launderymat across the street and the grocery store just down the road. A short walk to the beach (100 feet?) via the pathway beside the hotel was also very convenient. The hotel itself was a generally quiet place to stay and the distance from "central" downtown made the general area relatively quiet as well. I beleive that Hotel Casa Blanca provides good value and would stay there again and reccommend it to others.

We stayed at Case Blanca for a week in March. It was a great trip. The hotel is super close to the big grocery store in town and an easy walk to the beach and restaurants. The rooms are clean and the staff is very friendly. I don't think you could find a better place to stay in Cabarate in this price range.

If you're the kind of traveler who enjoys soaking up the flavor of wherever you're staying (and you appreciate a great value that includes waking up to hummingbirds outside your windows!), Casa Blanca is your place to stay in Cabarete. Casa Blanca is in a great spot on the eastern side of the Cabarete stretch and is a perfect alternative to the pricier condo rentals elsewhere in town. You can walk to everything in Cabarete (including the beach, of course) and are right next door to a full supermarket (several of the hotel's rooms have kitchenettes). Car taxis and "motoconchos" are readily available just outside for traveling to nearby towns. William, the proprietor, was helpful via email when we made our travel plans and he put us directly in touch with the woman who coordinated our surfing lessons and rentals (through Pauhana Surf Camp), as well as some yoga and Zumba classes (Magic19). NOT to be missed is the splendiferously casual Cafe Claro on the hotel's pretty botanical grounds (widely heralded as the best breakfast and lunch spot in town). See the cafe's review page for more. Also, across the street from Casa Blanca is a small roasted chicken and yuca vendor who sells yummy plates from his cart each afternoon and evening Mon through Sat. Visit him! And visit Cabarete!

No matter where we come from and where we travel, we wish to feel at home. Casa Blanca hotel is a small, basic and very clean, pleasant place to be in Cabarete. The convenience of very close grocery stores, bank, restaurants, beach and the down town make it a very good choice of accommodation. But not only that, it is quiet, it has a restaurant for breakfast and lunch that serves great food, the pool is lovely and clean all the time, the rooms are tidy and the owners are very kind and accommodating people. We were there this March with two small kids and it was so nice, we bought a house there. The one who helped us buy it was William, the owner of Casa Blanca, who is also the owner of Prestige Realty in Cabarete. William went with us everywhere and showed us everything we wanted to see, making sure we were happy with our choice. Many thanks to William for his efforts, as well to Dorothy, his wife, for making our stay so pleasant and being there for us whenever we needed help with anything. See you soon guys!

Room Tip: Studio A is right by the pool and perfect for a family of four.

Cabarete was supposed to be a stop on our tour of the North Coast. After five days at our first location (an amazing little hostel tucked back away from the strip), we decided we didn't want to leave the town, but wanted a shorter walk (we were traveling with a child). William had handed us a card, so I got in touch with him and they put us up in a cozy room, right off the front-facing balcony. Warm water, great maid service, pool, and a good location. Plus, the hosts are very kind and welcoming! Even for a "budget" hotel, it exceeded our expectations. I would definitely stay there again.

Thanks for staying with us! We have been so blessed with many great guests! In the past month we have had to send people to other hotels so book early if possible. And even if it is short notice check with us as we may have space!

Although hosts were away when I came, they arranged for another guest to meet me. Single room was a bit spartan (toilet and shower stall in same room) and small but served my purposes . Maid very accommodating for guests that sleep in. Very good and fast WiFi. Hosts very responsive to problems - shower knob falling off, leaking roof. Right next to a supermarket. Has swimming pool and nice cafe. Be wary of swimming right in front of hotel - has bad current. But a short walk will take you into inner Cabarete and its fine beach. All for $20/night.

Room Tip: If you plan on spending a long time in your room, choose a suite. Single rooms are too small and spa...

Glad you enjoyed your stay. Room 2 is a smaller one person room with a fridge and computer desk. Best value for single travelers in Cabarete at $20 a night.
