Nice smaller resort. The grounds are very well maintained and groomed. The lobby is nothing special. Rooms are adequate but could use an update. We had a nice oceanview room very close to the water. It was clean but a bit noisy since we were above the dining area. The view was very nice.
Food: The food was very good and I was never board with the selection over the two weeks I was here.
Beach: On a windy day the sand would bite into your skin. But everyone goes here for the kite surfing so wind is good. I felt sorry for the pool boy that had to clean all the sand out of the bottom of the pool everyday. The beach vendors were on you all the time if you stayed at the beach. After the windy days we ended up spending our time by the pool. There's a nice little bar by the pool with tables. They had two restaurants on each side of the property that were very good.
Overall, we loved going for long walks down the beach everyday. You can literally walk for miles. We also went into Cabarete most days around 3:00 p.m. and we hung out at a bar on the main street that had a second level. You could sit up there at watch the traffic and people come and go. This was a good time to be in town if you didn't want to see what goes on at night.....We did go into town to the nightclubs two evenings and it was a lot of fun. I felt reasonably safe in town but I wouldn't go in by myself. A lot of people would walk along the beach at night heading into the clubs. So, I think it was fairly safe for tourists walking in groups.
Warning: The waves along the beach are very big and can be very dangerous. They carry a lot of sand and they roll in large groups. If you are not a good swimmer and you don't pay attention to what's coming at you, you could run into trouble. If you have kids, you can't let them go in the water unless you are in the water too.
I will definitely go back to this resort again, partly because it's in Cabarete on a nice walkable beach. It's a good place to people watch but you will get hustled to buy stuff etc. So you have to keep your whits about you if that makes sense.
