2 late 20's females- where to stay?


My friend and I are headed to Cabarete next month and are trying to decide where to stay. We are deciding between getting a condo via Ocean Dream Condos that sound like they are right in town or staying at the Kite Beach Hotel.

We aren't coming just to kite surf, though I'm sure we'll try it at some point. Our priority is mostly to have a good time, relax and meet some fun people. We are slightly leaning toward Kite Beach Hotel just because we feel it will be easier to meet other people and we also have a feeling that the condo place will be full of families and the pool swarming with kids. Not that there is anything wrong with that- just not what we are looking for.

Can any locals or previous visitors help us figure out which one is the better option for us- Condo in town or Kite Beach hotel? (money is not a concern)

Personally I think you will be better off at the Ocean dream project. It is a 5 min walk along the beach to town and all the restaurants, bars and clubs. You will meet lots of folks there.

The complex of ocean dream is multiple pods each with its own pool so they tend not to be croweded. We lived there for a year and in our pod we had 11 condos (only 4 used as rentals) sharing one pool.

Here is one site to look at http://www.cabareteoceandreamrentals.com/

There are many others as well. Feel free to PM me if you want.

I'd choose a hotel in town. If you are in town you can walk around easier and meet more people. It's better for younger people, esp singles. Have fun!

Definitely stay in town - there's loads to choose from. Kite beach is stuck out of town around 4km and it will be hard for you to enjoy the great restaurant/nightlife that Cabarete has to offer.

Town is where all the actiion is but the party goes on all night and it can be very loud! If you plan to party all night that is the place to stay. Kite Beach Hotel is very quiet and not much happening at night but during the day kite beach is busy and a great place to meet people. It is a short cab ride or moto concho ride into town at night and a great walk during the day. Have fun.

Ocean Dream is a very safe walk from town, even at night, which should be enough to swing it.
