Going down again March 1st. Been at El Magnifico about 20 times - never stay anywhere else since I discovered it in 2006. Quiet, clean, extremely helpful staff. Pool is immaculate, guards are friendly. Located behind Janet's supermarket which is so handy. 10 minute walk to Cabarete central and the beach bars. Off the main road so no traffic/motoconch noise....

After sort of imploding on the all inclusive getto on Playa Dorado we escaped to this very comfy and nice hotel/condo. Nice clean pools, great staff that speaks everything fluently and takes care of calling this and that, booking taxis and cars and stuff. Great atmosphere, clean, safe and what we in Sweden call ”stabilt”. Go there.

The hotel is right on the beach, just walk down the stairs. The grounds and walkways of the hotel are very pretty. Plants, trees, stone walkways and walls. The place is very eco friendly. They have pools and Jacuzzis outside very close to the beach. The staff there are very friendly and the security guys are very friendly. There is...

I stayed in the royal suite for 4 nights and it was the perfect place for me. Beach in front main part of town mins walk or moto-taxi. Upon checkout I even received a reduced rate that I wasn't expecting but it was a very nice surprise. The royal suite is a huge modern suite with kitchen. My compliments to...

I've stayed at El Magnifico several times over the last year. It's a special hotel being right on the ocean. Everyone highlights the plus and minus of the rooms, so I will focus instead on why I keep coming back. The hotel grounds are a photographer's dream with lush gardens and amazing walkways between the buildings. The Yoga studio across...

This is a beautiful hotel with a great location. It is located in walking distance to the main strip of Cabarete, 1 minute away from the super market, and far enough from the road to not hear all the cars and motor cycles. The staff is also very nice and helpful. Highly recommended as long as you do not need...

We stayed in the penthouse in building four in the first week of March. Three people. There are two bedrooms and three bathrooms, plus an additional outdoor shower on the roof deck. The master bedroom has a great view and a nice breeze, and the constant sound of the ocean, which I really enjoyed and miss back at home. The...

I was looking forward to staying at El Magnifico and chose to stay there the longest (out of the 3 hotels that I visited) during my trip to the Dominican Republic.... I was EXTREMELY disappointed in almost every aspect of my experience there. The cost is fairly high, in comparison with other hotels in the area, and so I was...

We stayed in the two bedroom, three bathroom, four balconied unit with rooftop terrace in Building Six. We are two parents with two teens and a preteen. This was more than enough space for us to feel at home. As we are very familiar with Cabarete, you cannot beat the location. You are within a three minute walk of Janet's...

We stayed in the presidential penthouse of building four (rooms 14 & 14A). We had three bedrooms if you include the loft area. I felt safe and secure there. We had A/C and TVs (with cable) in two of the bedrooms. There is a grocery store around the corner and we didn't realize it until we were there for a...
