“uncomplicated, social, super cool!”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

This hotel is awesome! The hotel has everything it needs, the staff is friendly and uncomplicated and you get to know many people. The hotel is located next to the beach and a nice restaurant/bar where you can enjoy fruit juices for a low price.
Only thing that was annoying was the room service that always forgotten to bring enough towels and twice didn't clean the room at all. But a mail to the manager was enough to get things right. So no big deal.
The kite school is also located in the restaurant and I can only recommend it!

Thanks for the great stay!

I've been here twice now and am very well travelled around the world, but I can say a stay at this play has made me change my outlook on life. The active lifestyle that is lived by guests, staff and local expats who hang out at Extreme really does challenge you to look at how you live your life back home. Extreme is not just a hotel, it's a lifestyle.

It's a hotel, but has more of a hostel feel to it and I mean that in a positive manner. There's no bells and whistle or fancy services, but it's a very social place, within a day or two you'll know the other guests and staff, most of the people there on both my visits came on their own, but you'll never lack for company. The kind of people Extreme attracts is unique too, lots of really interesting people from varied backgrounds here.

If I had to nitpick, the hotel has a high occupancy rate from what I hear & so making money, they could reinvest a little money in the hotel, bed linens were very worn, pillows terrible (I'll bring my own next time), but you're not coming here to spend time in your room, it's only for passing out at the end of another activity filled day. Internet in the rooms is very patchy, but good at the bar.

Do yourself a favor and get down here, you won't regret it.

Thanks for your glowing review,

I'm glad you appreciated the unique vibe so much and had a great time, we definitely think the hotel attracts the best kind of people around. Cabarete is a unique place and The amazing people we get coming through definitely reflects that.

As an eco hotel we are constantly reinvesting in the place, sometimes the focus ends up being on new ways to make ourselves even more environmentally friendly and sustainable, adding more solar power, creating a system to allow us to collect and use rainwater , developing our permaculture farm where we grow organic veg for the onsite restaurant etc so sometimes we just get caught up in these projects. We're do always trying to find a balance where we keep working on the other aspects of the hotel too, so thanks for the feedback.

What makes all our eco initiatives possible is the understanding of guests like yourself who really just want to play outside on the beach or in the gym all day and still keep recommending us even if the rooms aren't quite five star yet.

Second time I'm staying here and couldn't be happier. Was first thinking of staying in town but that would've been a big mistake. It felt like people from all over Cabarete were pilgrimaging to Extreme to hang out or participate in any of the many activities. The staff are pro's at what they do and they make everyone feel like they are part of extreme. The best kiting is by the hotel. If you feel like going into Cabarete you can just take a motoconcho (spelling?) and in a couple of minutes you will be there. Robbie (the owner) is a great guy and if you can beat him at pingpong I'll buy you a beer. Have a great stay boys and girls!

As an active solo traveler, I was looking for a fun vacation that allowed me to develop new skills physically and meet cool people...Extreme delivered! Extreme offers sports from trapeze to kite surfing...but the gem is their rogue gym! The rogue gym has a team of incredible instructors that make every workout one to remember (seriously...your muscles will remember every instant!)...but it's worth it. Classes range from kickboxing to pilates, crossfit, yoga, trx...something to challenge your muscles and yet you feel at peace and energized! The instructors are encouraging and help you develop your form and technique. Jasper and Zach run tough crossfit classes, Tracy has you working hard in boxing and Molly leads you deeper into your practice up top in the yoga loft that has an incredible view of the ocean!...and those are just a few of the great instructors. The rooms are great...everything you need...cleaned every other day by a nice housekeeping staff! Managers are fantastic, Genevieve, Gigi and Monica are always around to help you and feel more like friends than anything! The location is great...perfectly situated for kiting, and they have a kite school on site. You can walk to the main strip of town in a 1/2 hour on the beach, or take a moto the other way to be surfing in the AM. I have nothing but amazing things to say about Extreme...thank you Robbi (the owner, who might be one of the friendliest people I've ever met)!

There is a rhythm of life at the eXtreme hotel that vibrates so very deeply with human solidarity, and a pure enjoyment with each day and moment for the lives we have been gifted. The synergy among the staff and trainers makes it almost impossible to highlight one person or thing because it is both the individual talents and the way they operate collectively that makes the place so special.

I have traveled often and have never felt compelled to write a review. If the things that concern you most about your next trip are your heart, happiness, health and reconnecting to that part of yourself that believes you can do anything -- this is the place. Perhaps our paths will cross should you decide to visit, as this place for me is a little like home -- and I'll be back often. Along with the staff, workers and visitors of the hotel perhaps our collective echo will push forward that rhythm that connects and pushes us all to be better people. Best. Kenny.

Hi Kenny,

Thanks so much for your review.

Of course here, we all feel that extreme is the best place in the Dominican Republic, or the whole Caribbean...Maybe even the world, but we're biased. It's nice to hear that with all the amazing activities like Yoga, Kitesurf, surfing and our incredible gym, people still find time to be blown away just by the energy of the place. We do indeed enjoy every day, it's hard not to when you live on the north coast...

see you next time!

We were staying at another place but were kiting at Extreme hotel site. The staff was really nice and assertive - even knowing that we're not staying at Extreme hotel they helped us with kite storage because we were too late to store at kiteschool. GG - a perfect hotel manager. Look forward to come tomorrow and kite kite kite!
P.S. + Good food and many interesting people from everywhere
