“Noisy, not a resort, more like a nice motel.”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

I was just here for a week. I found this to be a not so great place to stay. My main problems with this motel was the noise from the bar and the pool. We specifically asked the front desk not to put us in a room by the bar. It was not a miscommunication, our room was right next to the noise. This month that every night, until 1 AM, non-stop and very loud drunk chatter and music. Also, the noise from behind the motel (barking dogs, roosters, birds) will wake you up around 7am. The pool was too much chemicals, dirty and not heated. Without the pool, this run down and poorly located place is nothing more than a motel. Beds were hard as a rock. Cleaning service was good and prompt.

We ate in town, rented a car. The beach is close enough to walk to, but it is really just a walking or surfing beach (I'm a very strong swimmer). The massages were good, but not worth the package.

I read reviews before I got here and I did not have any problems with bugs or not having an AC. The rooms each have a ceiling fan and a decent breeze from the ocean.

I would HIGHLY recommend spending more money and staying at an actual resort.

Room Tip: -Get a room away from the bar and pool area or leave the resort. You will not sleep. -Eat in town...

If you are looking for luxury high priced high end this is not for you. If you are looking for nice homey atmosphere and friendly people this is the place. We could do everything or we could do nothing. We got a breakfast and dinner package for a few days, and the food for the most part was good and freash. marianna the massuese was phenomenal, i have been to camel back mountain, and the faimount in arizona, and she is the best. they have nice cheap pkgs, for the massuese. We loved loved loved Luis the entertainment host he was the best. You can see him in one of the pictures with the kids. He's the best. We rented a car for a couple of days while we were there. Everything is right off the main rd. The airport is a straight shot to the hotel. so you could either rent at the airport, or have one brought to you at the resort, like we did. just be careful of the people on the scooters and bikes. All and all nice trip nice atmosphere. Can't wait to go back.

Not a 5 star hotel but it is clean even if the bathrooms could use a remodel and the kitchens could also be updated but are adequate. But in a country like this, who stays in their room all day! The bedding is clean and maids sweep and do your dishes and anything else you may want every day.

Luis makes the days so fun - he is the activities director. He speaks Spanish and English and can help you with anything you want or need to know. He loves the children and being a part of all the activities. He loves to dance from Salsa to country "Six Days on the Road."

All the employees were very friendly - the food was good in the attached restaurant if you didn't want to cook or go to downtown Cabarete.

The beach is about a ten minute walk and is where the surfboard school is. Very fun there or you can continue to walk down the pristine beach for miles.

I would stay here again because it gave you a chance to be with either guests there from other countries or mingle with the local people.

Room Tip: If you want wifi in your room, stay away from rooms in front of the stairs, second and third floor...

Coconut Palms was not luxury 5 star, but the service was amazing they worked hard to ensure a special time, even folding our laundry and doing our dishes. Surfing access is close, but getting to any nearby towns or resorts it a hassle. Also it is a $ 30 cab ride from the airport. The excursions were pretty great, I would recommend the waterfall slide tour. The food was decent, but the resort was older and the penthouse even lacked air conditioning.

Our family of 5 stayed at this resort for a week. It was wonderful. Great access to the beach unless you had a wheelchair. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We wished for a few more kitchen gadgets i.e. a pizza cutter etc. because we cooked a lot, but otherwise it was great! Very happy with the staff and the accomodations!

Room Tip: Book early and ask for an ocean-front room. Ours was an ocean-view and though we could see the ocean...

Coconut Palms is a very tired, rundown and noisy place but it does have good food. We had the misfortune of staying in unit #41, located very close tho the bar. If you are a late nighter and like obnoxiously loud music, you will like this unit. At 11:00PM I called the front desk about the volume of "tunes". To their credit he did call the bar to have the volume lowered but the subwuffer still rattled my bones till midnight.

4th of September - 18th of September.
Great 2 weeks of my life.
Lived in the apartments there, great scenery, very close to the ocean (not more then 5 minutes of slow walking), right next to a surf spot (I recommend Pauhana Surfing School, they know what surfing is).
Definitely will be there again.
