Great oceanfront location, steps to kitebeach. Property manager will show you around and provide helpful tips. Barbecues on friday night were fun and a great way to meet others and locals. Overall a great vacation spot.

I stayed in the two bedroom apartment with a friend and we absolutely loved it! Location wise it was perfect as we were a stones throw away from kite beach with a gorgeous pool overlooking the sea and just a short moto ride away to town, so it was very easy for us to get around! The service was great, always asking us if we were happy or if we needed anything, our apartment was always cleaned, the quality was superb and found it to be great value for money it terms of luxury, location, service and cleanliness! The two bedroom was spacious, with all the newest amenities (tv, kitchen etc) and very comfortable beds!! I would highly recommend people to stay here as it offers everything a person needs and for sure will re-book when I plan on coming back to Cabarete. Our stay in Cabarete was great and we for sure have Porta Del Mare to thank for that!!

We traveled to Cabarete to visit our son... He suggested to us this beautiful apartment to stay at... We were more than pleased, by the views, rooms, and outdoor living space... The infinity pool looks out into the amazing turquoise ocean.. With the kiteboarders flying overhead every afternoon... What a sight...
Our hostess, Claudia, was adorable, accomodating and willing to help with any reservations or information we needed..
This was our second visit to see our son in Cabarete and definitely our best choice for a place to stay!!.. We cannot wait to go back!!...

Room Tip: All the rooms are amazing!!!!

The accommodations at Porta Del Mare greatly exceeded my expections, but even better than the luxurious accomadations as the amazing service provided by the staff their. Claudia goes out of her way to make sure her guests feel well taken care of, and the support staff do likewise. Whether it was just looking for information, or maybe a lift to the grocery store, or even getting you to a spin class, I've never felt so well looked after anywhere I've ever traveled! I'll definitely go back and just hope to many people haven't caught on otherwise I might not be able to get a room here :-)

Great if you love to be near the party seen but far enough that you can relax away from the crowds and sleep with no noise at night. Literally 5 minutes from the main strip with the bars and restaurants.
A fantastic value and the apartments were imaculate. The staff was friendly and helpful with suggestions, directions, etc.
We plan to book a week again this Spring.

This building is located right on the edge of Kite Beach, right on the ocean. It's a few minutes away from all the noise and commotion downtown, so really quiet - but only 5 mins from all the action. The property manager is really awesome and cares about your experience. It's a number of families and quiet people in the building, so great for a quiet spot. The beach is right there, and they have a beautiful pool and private BBQ area. We stayed in the 3 bedroom on the 2nd floor which has the most incredible views from every single room! Amazing. We loved our experience here and would go back in a second!

Had the most fantastic time once again!!!! I would recommend this place to everyone visiting Cabarete.
Claudia is an amazing host and will go out of her way to make your stay extra special - with the Kite Club a 30 second walk on the beach from Porta Del Mare with experienced professonial instructors. Adam who also lives in this apartment block runs an amazing wakeboarding school which is visited by both beginners and experianced boarders around the world. I travel both alone and with friends and make sure that a visit to both Claudia and Adam is a must have as often as possible.
The apartments at Porta Del Mare are spacious with everything you need and most important the beds are very comfy so you always get a good night sleep.
I would recommend this to people travelling with friends or alone, families, in fact pretty much everyone.
A must have trip.
Can wait to come back - not long now!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Porta del Mare is not only a place to stay, it's a place where atmosphere is a criteria. Everyone on site are super friendly and helpful. We are right in the middle of the Kitebeach action. Kitebeach area has grown a lot over the last few years and became a nice little community with where you can enjoy a nice healthy meal or a happy hour cocktail whilst enjoying the view of the Best Kiteboarder in the world. All our apartments have a balcony ocean front. We are 5 minutes away from the popular Surf Spot "Encuentro" and around 10 minutes walking distance from town. I strongly recommend our famous BBQ by the pool at sunset with fresh sea food coming from the fisherman next door... a MUST ! Our awesome staff will be happy to set it up for you so you can sit back and relax... Pleasure guaranteed! ... more   less
