Recent Cabarete reviews
"My wife and I were staying in Sosua at a place we were thinking of moving from when by chance we were invited by people in the same complex to join them to have a look at Playa Ventosa in Cabarete, they were looking at it for a 2015 rental. We were happy to join them because we had not been to Cabarete and we figured this would be a good time to see Cabarete, we were very happy with what we saw. Cabarete has a very nice vibe and Playa Ventosa was a very nice complex, I would go as far as to say Playa Ventosa is a higher end complex. When we returned to Sosua we emailed Pam to have her put us on a wait list for a 2015 2 month rental, at the same time I asked if by any chance she had a unit that she could rent to us now, luckily for us she just had a cancelation and said we could move there in a few days, we jumped at the opportunity. We have traveled to many Caribbean islands and stayed in Jamaica 15 times and have never stayed in a complex or a unit that was as nice as this one. We stayed at Playa Ventosa for 25 nights and really liked it there, the unit, the staff, the owners and other renters were all great The complex is close to everything so there is no need to rent a car. There is wind in this area of the north coast almost all of the time, if I was being picky I would say that sometimes the strong winds can get to be to much to take. During our stay we viewed several other complexes to see how they compared, they didn't. We were lucky enough to book a unit for 2 months in 2015 and 2016, we like it at Playa Ventosa very much and can't wait to return."Guest: David R.

"This was our second trip to Cabarete the first being in December 2013 where we rented a very nice villa a little further down the beach. As it turns out the very nice villa down the beach is not in the same league as Casa Bonita and I would argue not even the same sport. This villa is fantastic every little detail has been thought of (at least everything we could think of) The owner is very responsive to any enquiry and Marie the maid is great. Thanks for a great week out of the snow Joe, we will be back."Guest: mark r. Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: March 24, 2014View listing
"Beautiful home with contemporary furnishings and a home movie theater for extra relaxation. Great wifi so I didn't skip a beat with work. Ingrid the maid was fantastic, world class service.The pool was amazing gets very warm in the summer months but it allowed us to stay in the pool for hours. Very secure property. The owner Bruce was great to work with. The Sea Horse Ranch is a definite for my next travels."Guest: derwin b. Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: September 8, 2014View listing
"This was our second stay at this beautiful home. The first time we took our children, who had an amazing vacation and were very upset that we went this year without them! We loved the house and location so much we asked our friends to come share the experience with us this year. The driver Joseph is great and greeted us at the airport. We stopped and picked up groceries on the way to the house. He is also available to take you on tours and such should you want during your trip. A car is not needed while staying here. The house is located in a small gated community, and the manager Mark was there to greet us and always accessible should you need anything. The house is beautifully maintained and updated with nice décor. Ana the maid and the landscaper -sorry, forgot his name- do an exceptional job. The grounds are well kept with lush greenery. The yard is enclosed with a charming stone wall for privacy. The patio is covered and overlooks the pool, with a table and the most comfortable rocking chairs. Truly enjoyed the outdoor living and the feel of the ocean breeze. Beautiful views of the beach and kite surfers could be seen from the upper decks. The pool is simply perfect, sparkling clean and just the right temperature to enjoy day and night. We enjoyed preparing meals at the home, including the grill and the blender to make delightful frozen cocktails. And a short, pleasant walk along the beach to town has many restaurants/bars where you can enjoy a delicious meal with your toes in the sand. The beach is less than a minute walk from the house and is clean, no seaweed, and soft sand perfect for a relaxing stroll. The waves are great to body surf or boogie board. Everything about our trip was perfect and I cannot wait until we can visit again. Thank you to the owners, Chuck and Ronda, for allowing us to share your beautiful home!"Guest: Erica Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: May 24, 2014View listing

Cabarete Travel Tips
The Puerto Plata International Airport is just a 25-minute drive from Cabarete. Taxis provide transport from the airport into town or alternatively, you can hire a car. The airport services a number of North American and European carriers. As an alternative, you can also fly into Santo Domingo, Punta Cana or Santiago. However, getting to Cabarete from these other airports can be time consuming and expensive and therefore not worthwhile. It’s a good idea to get a map of the Dominican Republic before traveling so that you can familiarize yourself with the different areas and travel distances between the cities and towns. When departing from the island, make sure you reconfirm your flight departure time well in advance. Sometimes weather dictates schedule changes so it’s important to check this information before traveling to the airport.
