"This was the perfect place for our golf group - 6 of us, all women. The house is simply spectacular, the staff incredible and the owners accommodating beyond our expectations. The pictures on the website do not do it justice. If you want a comfortable place to lay your head at night and fabulous golf during the beautiful Caribbean days this is the place for you!"

"I can truly say that this property, from the initial contact with Frank down the check-out is one of kind. Frank, the owner displays this property accurately and there were no hidden surprises. His responses are timely and even checks on you throughout the stay to ensure that you are enjoying yourselves. The staff; security, maintenance, and maid service are readily available and as friendly as it gets. The WiFi worked great and the property was very clean.The six of us, all in the service industry, travel frequently and would recommend Villa Flamingo and Cabarete to anyone.
I read a lot of reviews (not on Villa Flamingo) about Cabarete and surrounding areas being unsafe. We rented a car and traveled to a couple random beaches in San Juan as well as Sosua and not once did we feel unsafe. These little cities/towns are beautiful destinations with a culture one should experience.
In terms of tours, we did the waterfalls and atvs. You can do a tour of 7, 12, or 27 waterfalls. We decided to go with 12 and paid an additional $40US to have a tour guide video our experience (well worth the money with a USB provided after). The tour took about three hours with lunch after and a bottle a rum was provided on our trip there. We did a private tour and it cost us about $70US/person. You can negotiate the price, but if you don't then I would suggest using Frank's recommended guide Jose.
The ATV tour is located about 100 yards down the street from Villa Flamingo. Again, we weren't the best negotiators and paid about $60/person for a four hour tour. The tour goes on the main street, through a few small towns, up into the farms, and ended on the beach. First time on an atv, don't be alarmed, the guides are helpful and this tour is definitely well worth it.
In terms of Cabarete, this town has about twenty little bars and restaurants located on the beach. Spend some time enjoying happy hour and dinner. Lazydog has some of the best fish tacos and Gaia Disco gets pretty busy late at night. They do try and sell you things during happy hour but just kindly say, "no thank you." Be respectful, enjoy the culture, and relax at Villa Flamingo and I can assure you that you won't regret it.
Thanks again Frank and staff,
From the now snowed in New England crew!"

"Where to begin! My three girlfriends and I absolutely loved staying at this villa. The house itself is gorgeous and spacious. The housekeeper's services are attentive and first-rate. The owner is a quick and thorough communicator. The resort deserves the accolades it's received. All services from the hotel were available to us, and were very prompt and helpful. One of us received a massage at the spa and it was excellent. The restaurants are all tasty and mostly reasonably priced. The market is a bit more well-stocked than some of the previous posts had led us to believe. If you are considering staying in this area, this is highly worth your consideration. You will need to either rent a car or use taxi services to get around. I have provided the owner with contact information for the local taxi service we used as it was excellent. This area of the DR is so worth exploring: the beaches are gorgeous, the whale watching opportunities January-March amazing (that is the main thing that brought us here), and Los Haitises national park quite stunning. And there's more that we didn't get to in a week! Enjoy!"
