What a gem of a place. Right on a beautiful beach and within minutes of fantastic restaurants and shops. The property was small and intimate and made our stay extremely enjoyable. We will be staying there again!

The most relaxing break, ever!
The Barefoot Beach Pad is run by an amazing team who should train hoteliers in how to look after guests! We were made to feel at home from the moment we arrived and appreciated the insider's tips for what to see, do and how. The hotel is in a beautiful location, 30 minutes slow walk along the deserted beach (or 5 minutes in a cab or shared minibus) from all Cabarete has to offer. We enjoyed the restaurants and bars in Cabarete but eating great food cooked fresh in the hotel kitchen, whilst sat at the bar looking out to sea with a cold drink can't be beaten! Thanks to the whole Barefoot Beach Pad team, especially Ben, Ev, Junior and Mary for your hospitality!

8/10 Very good

We loved the owners and their interest in making our stay enjoyable. We felt like family by the time that we left. Ben is a great cook and we were sad when we had to leave. They even drove us to our next destination.

Barefoot is close to town, but just far enough away that you feel like it’s you and the ocean. You can chill on your balcony and watch the ocean for a peaceful evening, or walk downstairs to the bar and lounge area, where the food and conversation with Mary, the bartender, will make you want to stay longer! The owners are amazing, always around and make you feel like you are family.

If you're looking for laid back, away from town relaxation then this is the place for you. Beach axis steps away with a great pool and bar. Food was surprisingly excellent owner operated and priced right. It's not a 5 star resort but isn't supposed to be. Close to town but far enough away to be peaceful and quiet. Two thumbs up.
