Comfortable, client hotel with kind people everywhere

Short Version: The hotel is located great and has a beautiful beach. The restaurant serves good food served by very kind people. The employees overall are happy and helpful. The rooms are good and comfortable too but has a few annoying things which can be disturbing when trying to sleep. Long Version: Location: + Hotel Villa Taina is a very nice hotel located conveniently right in the center of Cabarete. Nothing within the village takes longer than a 10-15 minute walk. Beach & Surf school: + The beach right in front of the hotel is clean and pretty flat so it’s easy to go swimming with everyone of the family. The waves can be quite big tho. The surf school located just by the hotel at the beach has ok gear - but the staff is quite lazy. Usually not helping you more than necessary with carrying your gear unless you ask them to and if you ask them to they’re rather grumpy. + Other than that the employees at the hotel and the restaurant is very kind and always happy. Restaurant & Bar: + The food is good but the portions are kind of small sometimes. The bar has nice drinks and a very comfortable lounge with great view on the sea. Pool: + The Pool in front of the hotel is clean and in good shape. It’s close to the beach and pretty open but still separated good so you won’t be disturbed. Rooms: + Our room had comfortable beds and we had a great view from the balcony. The bathroom is nice with a big enough shower. - The toilet is kind of unstable. The shower has a built-in soap dispenser, which is good but the cover often fell off when I pressed it the get soap. The air conditioner sure does it’s job but it’s very loud and when trying to sleep pretty annoying. Another annoying thing is the phone which has an extremely bright display that’s disturbing to me when I try to sleep.

Our favorite hotel on our favorite beach

Of all the beaches of the world, we have decided that we like Cabarete best of all. We now spend 3 weeks every year there at the Villa Taina. This hotel makes you feel like you were staying with family - very friendly staff, lively beach bar/restaurant with cordial bar tenders and waiters, clean and comfortable rooms. It is located at the perfect spot - near the center of Cabarete beach within easy "barefoot in the sand" walking distance to dozens of fabulous bars/restaurants under romantic palm trees. The hotel's beach area has the best view of the innumerable kite surfers when the breeze is right.

Great Hotel

A great hotel complex on the beach. Quiet at night (in the back of the beachside building) with an excellent restaurant and fun bar. Easy-going, very helpful staff. Great breakfast buffet; overall an excellent value.

Well maintained and central yet right on the beach!

This was a wonderful hotel. We had a fantastic time! WiFi is wonderful! When we walked along the beach the emails would come into my phone as we neared the resort. The facilities were very clean. Everything was in working condition! Extensive movie collection on DVDs to be used for free. In the downtown area but also clear access to the beach. Nice covered balcony off of the bedroom with a small table and chairs. Very hard bed. We still slept very well. The shower stall is an open design so water splashes onto the bathroom floor. This seems to be the style of shower stalls used in the Dominican. No microwave, kettle or coffee maker in rooms. Very small pool. There is a Claro store just a few doors down. I bought a SIM card for my phone and a half hour of talk time for $4 US. Janet's grocery store was by far the best place to exchange American currency.

Close to Eveything in Cabarete.

Nice change from an "all inclusive" Very nice, small hotel with great staff. Clean, Clean, Clean Lots of Security around. Very close to the beach and right in the middle of town. Food is very good at the hotel, and there are some good restaurants & bars, close by. Issac makes a great Mojito! Perfect Getaway
