Porta Del Mare
Reviewed 6 December 2011

We spent out thanksgiving weekend in this place. We were a party of 5 , 2 adults and 3 kids (ages 6,13, 16)
We had a 2 bedroom apartment, modern furniture, Wi-Fi, a/c, washer and drier, one TV. Our place had a few problems with hot water and cable TV, but Claudia (Property Manager) helps us to solve these problems. Please be aware of mosquitoes, bring some insects repellent. Also there are many dogs in the area (owners live there) so if you are not a dog person this might be a problem. The view is fantastic, quiet, is the perfect place to relax. This place has a BBQ area that all apartments share and Claudia has an employee that can assist you with your BBQ. Also Claudia can tell you the location of a good supermarket nearby so you can buy some groceries. All I can say is that I can't wait to go back...!!!

I have been to Porta Del Mare from July 30th to August 13th and did not want to go back home! I will not forget those vacations, ever! Claudia and Annie are the greatest hosts in the world! They will show you around if you ask them to or provide names of good places to go depending on what you feel like. Furthermore, the units are nice and cozy.

You want to kitesurf, the beach is right in front of you. This is the best spot! You feel like surfing? You are at 5 min by cab/car from Encuentro beach, You feel like having a drink, a snack or a nice dinner, you will find several bars and restaurants nearby, right on the beach. You can get there by walking on the beach or I suggest the experience of taking a motoconcho who will drive you to your destination with pleasure. Also a "must" in Cabarete, horsebackriding on the beach or in the mountains. Magic!

Those vacations were unforgettable! I intend to go back soon and visit my new friends again. Count on me!

I've stayed here multiple times. This place is ideal for kitesurfers and beachcombers alike. Porta Del Mar is centrally located to the downton area and the local surfing beach; making it a convenient place to stay. During the day you are in the midst of the daytime activities. And at night you asre only a short moto ride or beach walk from town. You don't always have to be on the move. Porta Del Mare is located directly on the ocean; meaning the waves roll right up to the sea wall. There are 2 main pools and a BBQ as well as bunch of lounge chairs. The place is safe, clean and suave. Stay here. You won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: request the front, ocean-facing units.

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.

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
