Whether you’re traveling with your family or friends, came to relax, to party or maybe a little bit of both. If you’re just in town for a few nights, or staying for a few months, prefer to be right in the middle of the action, or just off the beaten path, Cabarete has a great variety of accommodations and something perfect for every type of traveler.
Our top picks are more than just your average hotels, they are family run businesses and the cornerstones of our small community. The local hotels are often managed by the same family that built the property, with several of them living right on site. These places are built on a foundation of giving and proudly support The Mariposa Center for Girls. Here are our favorite places in town.
Velero Beach Resort
It would be impossible to talk about accommodations or hotels in Cabarete without mentioning the vision of Georges Coutu, who developed many of the luxury properties that line Cabarete Bay.
In 2001, Velero Beach Resort opened its doors as the first boutique hotel in town that catered to a wealthier clientele. Featuring 22 condo units and 7 penthouses on the east side of downtown, Velero offers a peaceful, private and relaxing experience with every unit featuring an ocean view!
Even if you’re not staying there, the beachfront restaurant is a great place to enjoy breakfast or a sunset happy hour to enjoy the best view of the Bay. With a clean and simple design, close enough to the action but far enough to get that secluded feel, Velero satisfies all types of travelers.
L’Agence Real Estate
L’Agence Real Estate is not a hotel, but the biggest rental agency in town! Offering luxury residences from studios to 1-5 bedroom apartments and villas. L’Agence Real Estate has more than 120 properties to choose from in their inventory.
The husband and wife team at L’Agence Real Estate and their expert staff can help you find the perfect condo to rent, or if you’re in the market for a more permanent stay, you’ll be well taken care of here.
Their beachfront properties are a great place to stay for just a few days or a few months, and if you’re into kite surfing or came to learn, just step right out in front onto the sand and go!
Millennium Resort & Spa
Georges Coutu’s grandest vision was two decades in the making, when he created Millennium Resort & Spa. Reflecting the sleek and modern style of the new millennium, this place has it all.
Equipped with a spa, restaurant, room service, fitness facility, business center, shopping and Laurel Eastman Kiteboarding School, it’s the only place in town where you literally never have to leave the property for anything. Offering great deals on extended stays, a great option if you’re working remotely.
Hotel Villa Taina
If you’re looking to stay downtown close to the action, Villa Taina is a local favorite. Just steps away from the ocean in the center of town, you can launch your kite, SUP, kayak or windsurf directly in front of your room.
This boutique-sized property offers great amenities with a restaurant serving international fare, beachfront bar, concierge and free yoga for guests twice a week!
With a cozy and eclectic style, the name “Villa Taina” honors the original Taino inhabitants of the island and their spiritual heritage.
Cabarete Beach Houses
Some travelers prefer to rent an entire house for their vacation. If this is more your style, check out Cabarete Beach Houses, also referred to as the “Nanny Estates”. Each uniquely designed two-level beach house has a full size kitchen and an ocean view with direct access to the beach. A great option for the family vacation.
Cabarete Beach houses is also the only property in town that features a tennis court!
If you’re looking to Zen out, Natura Cabana is the place for you. Featuring 11 private, rustically designed bungalows, each one is uniquely inspired by the travels and experiences of the owners and designers of the property.
With a spa, yoga loft, organic garden and gourmet restaurant that will cater to any dietary needs, come here for your own little private retreat.
Not a single tree was removed to build the place, just incorporated into the design, with some running right through the middle of the room!
El Magnifico Hotel
El Magnifico means “The Magnificent” in Spanish.
This place surely lives up to its name. This quiet boutique hotel right in town is a true artistic wonder, with every room featuring a unique, modern design.
Relax as you meander the winding garden paths on the property and enjoy the stunning ocean views.
Ultravioleta Boutique Residences
One of Cabarete’s newest hotels, this luxury 21-unit boutique property is all about fulfilling the requests of its guests.
Located just east of busy downtown, but close enough to the action, this place attracts those looking for both ultimate privacy and convenience.
Sexy and chic, at Ultravioleta you can travel in style.
When asked about an interesting unknown story about their accommodations, owners Anton Lvov and brother Maxim Lvov replied to us: “What happens at Ultravioleta, stays at Ultravioleta!”
Special getaway in Sosua: Las Cañas Apart-Hotel
Not every traveler wants to stay right on the beach. Some prefer the peace and serenity of the hills. If this sounds more like you, then check out Las Cañas Apart-Hotel. Just a few minutes drive from Sosua Beach, Las Cañas is more like its own community.
Las Cañas offers plenty of recreational activities. It also has the largest pool on the North Coast!
The Prize for Environmental
Responsibility Goes To… It’s a Tie!
Celebrating it’s 20th year in Cabarete as one of the veteran hotels in town, Villa Taina gets one of the prizes for cutting edge technology when it comes to the environment. The property operates a state of the art wastewater treatment plant that runs without any chemical products. Developed in Austria, the highly efficient system also services some of the surrounding properties, making Villa Taina a great neighbor!
Recycling, organic gardening, conscious water use and a focus on energy details make Natura Cabana one to follow when it comes to the environment. Here the theme “every little step counts” adds up to a huge impact when it comes to taking care of the planet. Natura Cabana’s efforts are a shining example of how any business, big or small, can do its part.
Located on Kite Beach, it wouldn’t be fair to praise the environmental efforts of local businesses without mentioning eXtreme Hotel. Running entirely on solar power, an organic garden, systems to leverage trade winds instead of air conditioning and more, eXtreme is essentially off the grid and strives to be one with the environment.
But really, they are all winners!
For many of the owners of these local businesses, Cabarete is the place they call home and each one takes caring for the environment very seriously. At almost every property in town, you will notice the environmentally friendly practices including composting, water conservation, recycling, organic gardening and more; just one more reason why we are proud to be a member of the Cabarete community.
