Reviewed 17 March 2012

We loved this place!!! First, you don't have to be all inclusive so you can enjoy the little things about cabarete that make it so great. So breakfast isn't included, there's this thing called Mangu that is served across the street that you should have to start the day. You don't have a ton of peso or cash to cover your drinks and snacks while at the beach, start a tab with your card and sign for everything every nite. Dinner starts late on the beach strip, so grab a drink for happy hour and enjoy the affordable appetizer to tide you over when you get off the beach. Isaac and Jasmin are waiting on you all week with drinks or snacks at the bar so keep them close to you and order the rum drink the locals enjoy with ice. They have a yoga instructor that comes a couple time a week to give your girlfriend/wife a break to recenter herself. There is a person at the front desk "Sergio" that helps you book excursions and is nice, fair and knowledgeable, meet him the first day and let him take care of your big plans. Just go here, everything else will work out!

Room Tip: Stay on the third floor, bring your pillow and use the safe, no worries = good times!

I have been staying at the Villa Taina for over ten years. They are so professional and they keep the place in really good condition. The location is excellent and it is tucked away from the main drag so that you really get to enjoy the beach away from all of the chaos happening out front. Beds are pretty stiff, however, but that is personal preference. A really safe place.

Room Tip: You have to stay in the beach front building. If you are going near the rainy season get one of the...

I stayed at Hotel Villa Taina for three days/nights in february 2012. I was booked for five nights (and payed for five) but decided to leave after three. The hotel was concerned when I left early (and of course w/o a refund) but as I told them I had no complaints about the hotel itself. (In fact they moved me to a quieter section of the hotel after I voiced my issue that my room was too close to screaming children at the pool). I simply did not care for Cabarete as much as Sosua and decided to stay my last two days there. Cabarete is fine during the day, there are many tourists, families, etc. but at night it is quite unlikeable. There is only one street, full of traffic by day and full of hustles and prostitutes by evening, both on the aggressive side. So I left early. If you are with a significant other or family and stay around your beach area- including this hotel- you will not have any problems with Cabarete.

Room Tip: If you don't want to hear screaming children all day long, request a room in the building that h...

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Villa Taina in mid-February 2012, and I gotta say, this place was perfect! The placement of the hotel on the beach was in the best spot to walk along the ocean to the other wonderful bars/restaurants nearby. Plus, if you walked out the front way you were right in the middle of town! The hotel bar had great 2-for-1 happy hour specials everyday and the staff couldn't have been friendlier. The restaurant was also top notch and a prime location for a nice dinner.

We would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to travel to Cabarete, and we plan on returning next year and bringing friends with us!
