Such a beautiful place to stay! The grounds are lovely and you'll find something new every time you explore. Our favorite spot was the "cold" jacuzzi area that overlooked the beach. The water there was the perfect temp in the afternoon. There is also a hot tub in another location as well. The beach was lovely. The water in front of the hotel was too rough for swimming but there were fun tidal pools to explore, and it was a five minute walk along the beach to swimmable waters in Cabarete Bay where you could rent a beach chair/umbrella and swim. Lots of great restaurant options in easy walking distance, as well as a supermarket for groceries. Hotel staff was excellent. Great upkeep of grounds and rooms. The only small negative for us was that the bed sheets were a little scratchy, but everything else far outweighed that. Also worth noting is that the view from our room overlooked an old cemetary, with the beach beyond that. I thought it was actually pretty cool and added to the charm, but some people might be a little weirded out by that! But not all the rooms would overlook the cemetary or are even near it, and if we hadn't been on an upper floor we would have never known the cemetary was there because it is small and walled in. Overall, it was a beautiful place to stay and if we are ever in the area again we would absolutely stay there!
