Resort : The condo itself is very quiet. It is not a hotel, all the units are owned. About forty percent of owners rent out their units when not in use. Overall it means compared to many other places which are very crowded, this place is very tranquil. You come back after a day of sightseeing and just relax. The grounds are immaculately landscaped. Beach chairs are always available, swimming is good. Parking is free. The restaurant is surprisingly good, no matter what you order: always fresh and delicious. Drinks are half off at happy hour which happens twice a day.
More information about the resort is available on its website
The floor plan is Comfort 2.
Surroundings - Cabarete: The condo is located about a kilometer East of Cabarete. The town has a fantastic beach with lots of activities: swimming, snorkeling (some corals off shore), windsurfing, surfing, etc. The place is famous around the world for wind surfing so it has a vibrant beach culture, there is lot of shops rent and sell the equipment, surf schools to teach you. The whole waterfront is covered with restaurants selling drinks, fresh seafood and different ethnic dishes. Palm trees are decorated with lanterns. It looks very romantic in the evening. The city also has a few grocery and hardware stores to stock up on anything you might need. The largest grocery store is Janet's. Prices are similar to North American, with some really good fresh cheeses, seafood and very cheap fruits.
Surroundings - Sosua: Next town west of there is Sosua: also a nice beach, lots of restaurants and stores. They have good snorkeling tours leaving right from the beach, I would definitely recommend doing it. There is a Seahorse resort complex between Sosua and Cabarete. Stop by the gate and ask if the restaurant is open. The place is rather upscale, a little pricy, but it is located on the reef with ocean all around you, waves splashing, etc. Unforgettable experience.
For me there is nothing better than the sound of the ocean to put me to sleep!!! My husband and I stayed in this condo for 3 months. (Jan. 8 to Mar. 26/13). We loved the condo and the closeness of it to the beach and the sunning deck and the ocean. This condo is right in front of the pool and on the other side is Martini's Restaurant. The large master bedroom looked out over the pool with patio doors that opened up onto the large patio. The living room also opened up onto the patio.
We found the condo very comfortable, enjoyed it totally and more than likely will return. My husband and I both love to walk on the beach and it became an every day event for him. Unfortunately for me I became quite ill with severe back pain and after spending 5 days in hospital, I was confined to bed for the remaining 2 months. The staff and other guests and owners were most kind in offering to help us in any way they could.
The condo was very clean when we arrived and thanks to weekly maid service (included) it was easy for my husband to keep it that way. Ilya was kind enough to trust me with updating the kitchen with missing items and I did my best in buying kitchen items to make a cook's job easier. I love to cook and it was much easier giving my husband verbal help in preparing meals. All else was comfortable with the exception of the linens and towels. They were supplied by the complex and were not in the best of shape.. Sometimes, the towels came back with rips and most always the sheets had holes or rips as well. But these minor inconveniences were easily corrected. We just had to ask for new ones. We also missed having a washer and dryer but that too was taken care of and for a very reasonable price. There is also security 24/7 and the night security and daytime staff are always willing to help you, even if it is to call you a cab or get you a lounge chair.
NOW, The Restaurant, they serve super food and their specials are great and at a reasonable price. Especially, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Tuesday was Taco Night and Thursday was Rib night and there were a few occasions when Lobster was on Special.
So, sit back, have a drink at Martini's at Happy Hour , enjoy, kick your shoes off and have a GREAT VACATION.
