My husband and I first stayed at Hotel El Magnifico in 2001 and came back every year until we got married right in front of the hotel on the beach in 2004. We loved it for the same reasons as mentioned in other reviews: super responsive and friendly staff, beautiful and perfectly maintained accommodations and grounds, close enough to the...

Wellmaintained facility, nice not too big buildings with appropriate (not luxury, but good enough) apartments and an extraordinary beautiful garden. The staff is great, really friendly and helpful. It's quiet and you feel safe, the beach is fantastic and not far away, many nice restaurants located at the beach. And a supermarket is just round the corner. On the more...

Stayed at hotel / cóndo magnífico in cabarete for first time this past week for 2 days and was truly impressed. I've been to the Dominican republic several times.

We spent little over week and rented royal suite in building nr 4, few days on the first floor and then on the second. We liked the place very much. It is quiet - just a little away from the central beach - so there is more privacy. And the little walk on the beach from the hotel to the...

We rented a two-bedroom penthouse unit so our daughter and son-in-law could stay with us as well. They are currently living in the Dominican Republic. The staff was so friendly and helpful. The unit was clean and the view of the ocean was priceless. The housekeeping staff changed the linens everyday (the towels were a bit thin). The grounds were...

I was so lucky to have come across this beautiful accommodation in Fodors guide book! I stayed for a week from 4 October. Firstly I had a wonderful spacious apartment.

I spent a week staying at this amazing resort. It was stunningly beautiful! The resort property, the room accommodations, the staff service, all were magnificant. The resort property was a tropical paradise, and the fencing and stonework throughout the property and pathways was enchanting. The grounds were kept immaculate by the staff daily, and the view from the property to...

After scouring the internet for hours on end, I made the best choice I could make for help in finding the perfect place to stay in the Dominican Republic. I contacted Rimma at Sunny Villa Holidays and gave her an idea as to what my travel group was looking for. She directed me to El Magnifico and it was beyond...

I stayed here, in building 3 penthouse, with my wife and 86-year-old father. I had hesitated because of the spiral staircase. Nothing is perfect, so.....the beach isn't as great as those around the point to the west, and there are the stairs. Aside from that, everything was spotlessly clean and maintained, the staff members were all terrific, and the gardens...
