We stayed in Cabarete for two weeks in November 2006. The first week we stayed at Olas de Oro (apt.22) which is in the other end (the end where all the kitesurfing is at) of Cabarete Bay. We all (4 adults, 3 children)liked both accomondations very much, some of us voted for week 1 and some week 2. Both very nice, and very different from eachother.
I do agree that Magnifico is a very stylish hotel, the building we stayed in ( # 4 ) and the hotel grounds are not the ordinary hotel thing, they are very special.
I still think that I can also find some things that made it not perfect in my opinion. Bare in mind that we traveled with children, I guess an adult couple would find these things not so important.
Here goes:

- there is no swimmable beach here

- our apartment was told to have an oceanview, which it also did.
Nobody told us what was between the ocean and the hotel (see picture)

- the sound level in the apartment was pretty high as there are no "normal" windows there. Nighttime I woke up of this as I am used too an quiet bedroom

Despite these things it is a beautiful place, and my greetings to Lisa at the frontdesk, she was very nice and natural to deal with.

Will be glad to answer any questions.

I have had the pleasure of staying at some of the nicest hotels in the world and many hotels in Dominican republic.
El Magnifico is an absolute treasure, I booked a two bedroom ground floor condo, it was superbly furnished and beautifully decorated, the grounds of the hotel are impecabble and although I was told the hotel was busy for three days we did not see another person!
We rented a car as always and this is not a necessity but I like to explore!. Just 50 meters from the hotel is Supermercado Janet which carried everything you would need and the hustle and bustle of Cabarete is minutes away. We preffered to walk into town on the beach much more scenic. The hotel staff were excellent. Free wireless and perfect maid service We could not have been happier
We will definatley visit again.
I am almost loathed to place a review as I want to keep it a secret!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My girlfriend and I just returned from a fantastic stay in Cabarete. Hotel El Magnifico was fantastic, especially for the money. The rooms are very comfortable, well-designed, and clean. The staff was very friendly. Perhaps the best part -- you can walk right onto the eastern end of Playa Cabarete, just far enough around the bend to avoid the crowd, and just far enough off the street to avoid the noise. There's no restaurant on the property, but there are 2 great options next door: Claro, on the corner of the access road, is a great breakfast/lunch spot; and Otra Cosa is a small, well-run, beachside restaurant next door. If you want to go to the DR, but don't want the all-inclusive trap, this is a great place. Don't tell too many people though!

Quiet and peaceful. The perfect place to relax and chill out.
Beach front condo ensured excellent views and easy access to the outdoor (again beach front!) jacuzzi.
The condos were kept clean and daily maid and laundry service a bonus.
Far enough away from centre of Cabarete (3 min walk along beach) but close enough to be in the middle of it all.
Anyone gong here should pop in and see Sandy at Clario's - the cafe almost on site - her food is lush and very very cheaply priced.

Room Tip: Værelse 15 er det absolut bedste, med en lille jacuzzi lige uden for døren og med udsigt til havet fra terrassen.
