Casa Blanca Hotel & Surf Camp
Ranked #9 of 30 Cabarete B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 7, 2008

We sure had a great time in Cabarete and very pleasant stay at Casa Blanca Hotel. Dorothy made us feel extremely welcome and gave us some really useful tips about where to shop, the best place to snorkel, good places to eat and when restaurants have the 1/2 price deals, etc. The place was very clean and we felt safe staying at the hotel. Our suite in particular had a great view of the pool and had a little private balcony which we quite enjoyed. It was very nice to have the fridge and little kitchenette and have the option to be able to cook if we chose to.

There is a wonderful restaurant on site that serves a reasonably priced delicious, wholesome breakfast. The place was always packed in the mornings with people from all the nearby hotels. Janet’s Supermarket is where the locals shop for groceries and was only steps away. The beach and the best little BBQ chicken place is only a block away.

On Good Friday, Dorothy treated her guests with some home-made baking while we were just hanging out by the pool that afternoon. Saturday night, my husband and I decided to experience the night life at Cabarete but felt we needed someone to keep an eye on our 7 & 10 year old kids . Bless Dorothy’s heart, she volunteered to help us with them, so we were able to go out and enjoy ourselves.

Casa Blanca is not a fancy place but you get real great value for the $$ and you get excellent personal service from the owners of this hotel. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this hotel and would go back there in a heart beat!!

This was our 2nd time to Casa Blanca.

We were here almost exactly 1 year ago and the improvements to the hotel & noticeable & significant.

Owners Dorothy & William are the most thoughtful & caring people and made our stay truly enjoyable.

Just to give you an idea, Dorothy offered us an extra fan, extra blankets, dvd's to watch and brought Easter/Semana Santa treats by the pool in the afternoon. She checked on us daily to be sure we had everything we needed and definitely went above & beyond!

In a small way, we tried to return the favour by bringing Dorothy a litle homemade Dominican lunch of fried plaintains & chicken & the next night she brought us one of her specialities, pan fried fajitas & sweets.

After spending 2 weeks at Viva Wyndham Playa Dorada for our wedding (which was also great!), our last week at Casa Blanca offered the much needed peace & quiet we were looking for.

We stayed in Studio B, right at pool side and spent most days listening to music & playing cards by the pool.

We were lucky enough to enjoy all the Semana Santa excitement with an awesome 2 night beach party on Cabarete Beach & saw OMEGA free in concert. It was so nice to walk to the center of town to take part in all the festivities & then walk back to the peacefulness of the hotel.

Rita & Juan are fantastic & somehow always knew exactly when to come to clean the rooms without being intrusive.

The only negative would be the amount of mosquitos! They seem to love me but we bought some mosquito coils & that seemed to keep them at bay.

I just want to thank them both for a great week & to show our appreciation for their hard work & tremendous efforts!

We will be back again as soon as possible!!

The Casa Blanca hotel is a little jewel in Cabarete. The rooms are a good size and very clean. With a frig and hot plate in the studio rooms you really don't need to eat out, but a holiday is a holiday, right. No cooking for me. The pool area is lovely with palms trees of all varieties. From the owners down to cleaning staff, we were made to feel welcome and assisted in every way. The cafe located on the premises served an excellent breakfast every morning and lunch at noon. The hotel owner introduced us to several restaurants in the area including a wonderful Dominican style restaurant. The "best" rice I have ever eaten. Loved this holiday so much we plan on returning for a week in April or May. "Hope the honeymoon suite" is free with its great view from a private balcony overlooking the pool. A number of the rooms opened up onto the pool area. The prices were incredible, averaging around $35.00US per day. We had a wonderful time and definitely will make the "Casa Blanca" in Cabarete our destination of choice.

We loved this place. It's not for luxury lovers, but if you're looking for a cozy little hotel with friendly owners, this is the place. It's about a 5 minute walk from the main strip -- nice and quiet, but easy to get to by foot. (We felt perfectly safe walking around, day or night.) The Canadian owners, William and Dorothy, do everything they can to make you feel welcome, and have plenty of helpful local knowledge. Their attitude transmits to the guests, and we found this one of the friendliest all-round places we've been to in a while. It's an especially good place for kids. The owners bought the hotel only a year ago, and are making some badly-needed repairs, such as fixing torn screens, but if you like a low-key place where you'll feel entirely at home, this is it. We would definitely go back.
