The villas at Olas de Oro may be the best place to stay in Cabarete! We stayed there last summer and found everything about it to be perfect! Especially the location- close to the restaurants/bars, a lovely walk to Kite Beach, beautiful quiet beach right at our doorstep. The manager, Barbara, is just amazing, she spent hours trying to help us when our return flight was cancelled. Our villa was beautiful,and directly on the beach. The security guards were great- attentive at the front gate and patrolled the grounds in the evening. Cleaning staff equally fabulous! We bought groceries at the store across the street and cooked most meals in our villa. Not inexpensive- but if you want to be guaranteed a great vacation-you will love Olas de Oro!
