Be careful what room you get

We checked in last night and are VERY DISAPPOINTED in the room we received. I knew I didn't book ocean view...but the room we got has a view of a WALL! And it is right over the lobby with TONS of street noise...horns...motorcycles...alarms...all night long. Not the relaxing vacation I imagined. The room itself is fine. Clean and nice....but I feel from the pictures presented and the room we got that I was a victim of bait and switch. They said we could switch but it would cost more. We are a family that does not have ability to take vacations often...then to save up to take a vacation to relax and to have a noisy room with a view of a wall is very disappointing.

Perfekt hotel with great staff

This hotel is absolutely perfekt if you, like us, don't like resorts. It is small and cosy, right on the beach and everything just works. Relaxing but with all the service you need. The restaurant (Serenade) has the best people. They are always happy and and sweet, we are alread missing them. Good food and drinks.

Nice hotel even if you don't kite surf

I stayed here during a study abroad program. Our time in Cabarete was brief, and I did get to have some time on the beach. The room was clean, the spacing of the double beds was a little odd, and the shower was too warm. I think the cold water faucet was broken and I had to get up and out that morning. I cannot fault the staff for it. I just lacked enough time to complain, get it fixed, and make it to breakfast. The bed was comfy, which was a great thing.

Ocean View room - not excactly

second floor ocean view balcony is really "obstructed view" I wouldn't pay extra because your view is basically blocked by a big tiki hut roof. First day we had to have someone come to our room because we could not get the water to turn on in our shower. They fixed it in about an hour. After the first day they took the volleyball net down and I never got to play. We went to this area thinking it would be quite, relaxing and yet also have some local night life. There is a constant annoyance of locals trying to sell you garbage when you are trying to layout, read, and even while dining. Between the people trying to sing/play guitar during dinner & ladies trying to corn row my hair or give me a message it was not as relaxing as it could have been. My boyfriend did do the spa and the last minute hour massage was setup and he really enjoyed it.
