10/10 Exceptional

One-of-a-kind property. Charming in every way. Tucked behind the main drag that runs through Cabarete, it is an oasis between the mayhem of the road and the ocean and beach just steps away. The pool is clean and refreshing. The grounds are immaculate. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are simple (not fancy) but clean, functional, and comfortable. All good. I would stay again in a heartbeat.

Beautiful property! Grounds are well kept, and the gardens, plants, greenery are amazing. Ground la are cleaned swept daily. Seemed to be general maintenance happening consistently and that’s what you want to see. (Little things ie, a gentleman was touching up painted areas). Our room was the closest to the ocean, so it takes a beating from the warm salt air - you could see the effects of in on the exterior of our room and inside (rusted metal etc) But that’s normal. Place was beautiful.

I'll be back soon.
This place was totally Instagram friendly, with lush gardens in a medieval setting overlooking the ocean. Every single employee made sure our stay was memorable.

Second time visiting this property and it was still breathtaking when we arrived. The grounds, buildings, rooms are all very unique. Location is great, and even when the hotel is sold out, it feels as if you have the place all to yourself.
