“Top finish level, right on the Beach in Cabarete”
Reviewed 22 May 2013

I have stayed at the Palace on a couple of occasions and especially appreciate the location on the beach, at the eastern edge of the happening part of town and the perfect service from Brigitte and Racqelle and their staff. The Swiss/German developers of this project attended to every detail and designed and built to top levels of finish with coralina tiles, top-quality German windows, granite countertops throughout, stainless steel appliances in the kitchen and 10' high ceilings.

Location at the east end of the beach is more protected from waves and fairly secluded from the crowds. Restaurants and bars are just a couple hundred feet to the west and Vela windsurf is very close.

Each apartment has a parking space in the basement of the building.

Security is excellent.

I highly recommend the palace for top level accommodations on Cabarete beach.

Room Tip: ground floor is like living on the beach; second floor is over the beach and third floor is flying w...

We are independent travelers ( traveled here - the wife & I - without our son ). Got there on April 2 for 7 nights. Always have a car to explore. Not interested in all-inclusive resorts. We search out the best properties at the best values for us. We fully engage with the local population for the the most beneficial & educational experience. We found what we believe was the best choice for us in Cabarete. I have been wanting to get to Cabarete for several years & we were totally satisfied...Direct flight from Newark, NJ to Puerto Plato ( POP ), then only a 30 minute drivein the rental car to Beach Palace Cabarete ( BPC ). No travel stress. Again, muchas gracias to Raquel, Brigitte and the entire staff, especially the security guys there 24/7 to make us as comfortable as possible. I got friendly with Alanso, a security guy who was on the beach often to attend to any possible need. Great security overall with an underground parking garage and assigned parking space and an electronic gate at the sidewalk to enter the garage.
BPC is directly on the beach and located on the east end of Cabarete Bay, where it is much more quiet and not in the center of the fun beach activity and the great restaurants. There is no pool & we did not need a pool... no pool, not many kids..The beach there and the sea are marvelous !!!! And at this location at the east end of the bay, there is a reef about 3/4 of a mile out & keeps the surf quieter at the location of BPC.
We had the huge master bedroom of #8, on the second floor. All of the 18 condos at BPC have 3 bedrooms and a bathroom for each bedroom, and washer & dryer if you take 2 or 3 bedrooms. They locked off 2 bedrooms & we had the huge master bedroom with the oversized king bed with wonderful mattress, huge living room & great kitchen. Walk-in closet area and a completely tiled bathroom the size of your average USA bedroom. Our bedroom with doors opening to the patio was on the water side, and the patio area was huge with the large dining table on the patio to enjoy relaxing coffees & meals. BPC is 5-6 years young & well maintained.

We had fabulous dining experiences. Only problem is that the government applies an 18% tax to restaurant charges. When you get the bill at a restaurant it includes 10% service ( tip ) plus the 18% tax, so get ready for 28% added to your bill. and we determined that the 10% service does not all go to the waiter or waitress, so paying more than the added 28% is a difficult decision if you want to give the waiter or waitress more.

Many restaurants that do not accept credit cards do not add the 10% plus the 18% to your bill, so look for menus that indicate that taxes are included in the price of the meal. But it appeared that wherever you use a credit card you will get hit for the 28%. I paid the 18% tax at a jewelry store as well. The supermarket I think adds 8% tax. Janet's supermercado is a short walk down the street from BPC.

BREAKFAST: in the condo, plus: Belgian Bakery is wonderful & frequented by many Americans, Europeans & Expats & locals, and not too far to walk. Friends is a short walk & excellent for breakfast or lunch only. Claro is excellent for breakfast & lunch only ( closes at 2:00 ) & is just past Janet's market on the same side of the street & located in a lovely garden setting. Look for the sign for the little Casa Blanca hotel & Claro is located there just down the driveway from the street. You will be greeted by the lovely Michaela as your waitress & she is a wealth of knowledge of the area. We were there several times.

LUNCHES / DINNERS: soo many great places:
Withing walking distance in town: PaPi on the beach. A great meal, specializing in shrimp dishes - really excellent !. LaTerrasse Cabarete is owned & managed by the lovely Isabelle ( from Belgium ) and her sweetheart of a mother, Monique, was there while we were there. The meal we had there was superb & we were there about 2 &1/2 hours. We returned on a Monday evening to dine again, but she was closed to our disappointment. LaTerrasse Cabarete is situated on a quiet alleyway of shops between the beach & the street. Across the ally is the very fine jewelry shop, Fred Joyas. Also on the beach: Pomodoro Pizzeria makes great pizzas & pastas. Casa Del Pescador serves great fish dishes. 10-15 minutes away you MUST find La Boca Grill for lunch, located on a beach where a local river meets the sea. A hideaway beach where locals gather. We were there 2 times & the price is great & no tax. The whole fried fish with salad & rice & plantains is terrific as is their other dishes... great fun there where you will want to linger for hours.. One way to get there ( if you do not go by car & it is rather tricky to get there by car, but I got there with no problem ), is to take the local river boat ride with Rudy Martinez ( Rudy Rugama Jungle River Tour ). You go to Rudy's house after calling & setting a time to go out on his boat. Rudy is a GREAT GUY.. Rudy will take 2 people or 15 people out on the river ride & he stops at LaBoca Grill for lunch. Don't miss this experience !.

Also for dinner: Blue Moon. What an experience this is !! About a 30 minute drive from BPC, this is an Indian-Dominican fusion dining experience where up to 18 people sit on cushions with loads of pillows in a circle in a large thatched roof burro. Located on the owner's home property in the local hills, this is a great meal / experience with delightful & caring owners. Need to reserve a spot as they often have large groups. We were lucky to get there to join 17 folks mostly from Norway.

ADVENTURES: Rudy Rugama River Tour as mentioned above. Then there is 27 Charcos ( waterfalls ), a 75 minute drive to the other side of Puerto Plata where you hike up the mountain to enjoy a series of 7, or 12 or 27 waterfalls on the way down with a guide & life jacket & helmet. This is fabulous fun. I did 12 falls & you will really appreciate the guide as this can be somewhat physically challenging, but DO IT !! Government owned & managed & inexpensive ( $9 for the 12 falls, plus $7 for a pretty good buffet lunch ). I took my guide for the buffet lunch.. great guy ( Osvaldo )....

Cabarete Bay is famous for surfing / kite boarding & wind surfing. None of which I did.I also did not get around to doing any scuba & you need to check out the best spots to snorkel.

We also did the all day Outback Jungle Safari, which I reserved directly with them for $69 per person with a GREAT lunch included.. This is a MUST DO excursion: They picked us up at 8:45 at BPC & we hooked up with others & began the adventure: large open vehicle, drove through the countryside, stopped at a traditional Dominican home & had a great experience there with the folks at the village, visited a local school ( bring school supplies for the kids & stuff the families need - do not bring candy for the kids - bring baseball stuff as well ), we saw and learned much, stopped at a beach to boogie board for an hour & ate sugar cane & they serve drinks all day. Worth every penny !!. Returned to BPC at around 5:30

That's my story & I'm sticking to it.. Cabarete & BPC are great, whether you are an independent traveler or prefer the all-inclusive vacation. Much more fun & easier if you speak a little Spanish, which I do & I brought my own cigars as I always do on vacations... We had no problems with the locals at all. The population is very poor & I gave a lot of tips to a lot of people...

Room Tip: We had #8 - was great on the second floor, but I think all are great

Wow! Where to start?

Condo: We stayed from Feb 26-March 7 in unit #211 which was a gorgeous 3br, 3 bath, beach-front place. The condo has beautiful stone floors throughout. Each modern bathroom had its own walk-in shower, toilet and vanity area, the master also had a huge tub. We loved that there was a full size washer and dryer in the unit and took advantage (you can pack lighter!). The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was modern, with full size stainless appliances. Linens were provided: kitchen towels, bathroom towels, washcloths, bathroom mats, and large, beach towels. The unit was cleaned M,W, F: trash removed, sand swept out, floors mopped, linens replaced, and beds made, they did a fantastic job! But the best part was the large balcony that had a table for 6. We enjoyed having dinner out on it. There is also a smaller balcony off the master BR. The living room was spacious and very well-appointed with sat. tv, and a dock for your iphone/ipod.

Other things to note: there is 24h security, a kitchen sink spigot for spring water (drinking, ice-making), air conditioning and ceiling fans, hair-dyers, and if needed, arrangements can be made for an air conditioned car (same price as a taxi) to pick you/drop off at the airport.

Area: Within a 5 minute walk you can be at the local super market , Janets which has almost everything one could need and has one of the best exchange rates. Next door to it is a place to pickup fresh fish/seafood if you're into cooking. A 3 minute walk gets you into the thick of the beach bar/restaurant scene. The airport is about a half hr ride away, Puerto Plata about 45m to the center.

Bring mosquito repellant in addition to sunscreen.


Brigitte and Raquel made our planning extremely easy, they answered questions very quickly and were readily available. Everyone, including the guards and cleaning ladies always greeted you with a smile. Thanks for a wonderful vacation!!!

Just came back from Beach Palace and must say it was amazing. The condo was spacious. It was Suite 208. It was right on the beach and could hear the waves coming in and out all day long from second floor. The staff were very accomidating. From brigette to racqelle. The secuirty is on 24 hours and they were very helpful with any needs we had as well through out our stay from directions to getting us a taxi to go on a tour. Im happy i stayed here since there were plenty of restaurants and bars to eat at as well as two super markets (janet is the one we mainly went too)close by if you wanted to cook. We drove by many resorts we had in mind and they are far from anything walking I guess so that you only stay in the resort. The beach is clean and warm. We also enjoyed seeing kitessurfers in the late afternoon out in the ocean pretty neat during happy hour. Pretty safe walking as well with all of the locals around we were not bothered by anyone walking at night just only by vendors that wanted business when you walked by there store in daytime. Everything here exceeded our expectations and hope to come back to stay here really soon to stay at the Beach Palace.

Room Tip: Stayed in Apt 208 was great

Our family of five received royal treatment at the Beach Palace over the New Year holiday. I can't imagine a better setting on this fine stretch of beach. The condo was spacious and well-appointed, with a palm-framed view of the sea. The terrace led right onto the beach, the surf rolling in perhaps 50 feet away. Soak up the sun and watch the colorful kite surfers do their stuff in the distance. Restaurant row on the beach is perhaps a five-minute walk, and the food and ambience are simply outstanding. A great value, too. For grocery needs, the local "supermarket" is also a short walk down the main street. Brigitte was an outstanding hostess, attending to our every need and concern. She arranged for a kayaking outing through the beautiful backcountry and a scuba-diving adventure for a couple in our group. We enjoyed the local flavor wherever we went. We left Cabarete already thinking about our next visit.

There is not a better place to stay in Cabarete than The Beach Palace Cabarete!!
