    Location 10.0 /10

    Located in the heart of the tourist area of Cabarete, on the northern coast of the island, the Villa Taïna is within 25 minutes from the international airport of Puerto Plata. The hotel is nestled between the space reserved for kitesurfing and another for windsurfing.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The hotel has 57 rooms, offering a pleasant ambiance, with air-conditioning and tastefully selected furnishing. There are 34 standard rooms, 20 comfort rooms and 3 penthouses. Each room has all the necessary amenities: satellite television that broadcasts 86 channels Eurosport, individual air-conditioning and a fan, a safe (10 dollars a week), a stocked refrigerator (a bottle of water is provided and the rest is at your expense) with facilities for making tea and coffee. Each room extends to a terrace or a balcony overlooking the sea. For those who never go on a trip without their laptops, all rooms have free Internet access with ADSL connection. The bathroom is clean and spacious, with a large shower, a hair dryer and personal skin care products. On the top floor of the building close to the beach, two penthouses share a large terrace overlooking the sea, ideal for a group of friends. The bathroom contains a large Jacuzzi tub with a flexible shower.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    The Villa Taïna derives its name from the first Indians who inhabited the island, the Taïnos. The decoration of the hotel is naturally inspired by this rich past. The first building located beside the main road of Cabarete houses the reception and a small spa (massage, facial care, pedicure and manicure), a computer and free Internet access. Crossing a small road, you will reach the second three-storey building overlooking a small well-fitted out swimming pool housing a jacuzzi and ,just in front of the beach, the bar and the restaurant. Open from 9 AM to 9 PM and with depth of 5 feet, the pool area offers 6 deckchairs. Most customers prefer the beach for a day devoted entirely to kite surfing, windsurfing and water activities. There are two shops that sell clothes and beach necessities.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    As part of your bed & breakfast package, delicious omelettes and various home-made pancakes are served every morning, cooked in the Sérénade, a very pleasant restaurant with a terrace on the first floor. The restaurant is located just by the beach, next to the beach volleyball court, so beware of a flying ball! A pretty aquarium adds a marine touch, making the space a welcoming place to dine at noon or in the evening, a la carte. The dinner is accompanied by relaxing music, by the illuminated palm trees. Do not miss, under any circumstances the Mongolian barbecue buffet, organised on Wednesdays - a kind of Japanese Teppanyaki: take your time and fill up your bowl with a world of delicacies, then give it to Daniel, the Colombian chef who grills everything on a hot plate, in front of your stunned gaze, playing with the flavours of coriander, ginger or peanut butter: a true delight! Just opposite, there is the beach bar, open from 10 AM to 10 PM for both the customers of the hotel and outside visitors. Take advantage of the happy hour from 5 PM to 8 PM. One beer will cost you 85 pesos (1.20 pounds), a glass of wine - 95 pesos (1.40 pounds), and a dish about 300 pesos (4.40 pounds).

    Beach 7.70 /10

    The beach is undoubtedly the main asset of the Villa Taïna. It is a long stretch of sand dotted with thatched sunshades and coconut trees. The magnificent beach of Cabarete is a world famous windurfing and kitesurfing spot, where multiple races are organised for the World Cup in June. The beach of Cabarete is peaceful in the morning and the wind blows stronger every afternoon, providing a kick-off for kite surf and windsurf enthusiasts. From there you can watch the impressive ballet of multicoloured sails floating on the waves: a unique spectacle. The sea becomes rough with some beautiful rolls that will delight enthusiasts, but be careful! Swimmers must be careful to avoid collision! Beach towels are free to customers, who can also enjoy playing on the two beach volleyball courts. The Villa Taïna is ideally located at the edge of an area reserved for kitesurfing (1/3 of the beach on the west side) and windsurfing (2/3 of the beach on the east side). Depending on the hotel, the windsurfing club offers a wide range of activities and the latest equipment. But if you bring your own equipment, storage lockers are available for free to customers. For beginners, the Villa Taïna offers a one-hour windsurfing or kitesurfing introductory course. Surfing takes place in the morning on the neighbour beach of Playa Encuentro, 3 miles away, for 40 dollars half a day. The beach of Cabarete hosts several World Cup kite surfing and windsurfing events in June. The ban on motorsports on the beach ensures healthy calm.

    To know

    Built in 1985 and renovated in 2000, and with the construction of a second building beside the beach, this small and modern hotel is one of the best centres for windsurfing and kitesurfing on the island, under the management of Franz, who is from Germany. Young people or families, the clientele all share a common love for water sports! Lovers of the Taino culture, which has given its name to the hotel, the German proprietors exhibit works of art belonging to the pre-Colombian inhabitants of the island, in memory of their now bygone culture. You can find this theme throughout the hotel, including the rooms, thanks to the diligent efforts of the owner's mother, who has thus added an original touch to this very interesting decoration. The hotel's logo is also a Taino motif that represents the protector of dreams.
    As for activities and events, Camille will organise your evenings (birthdays or other) and activities, including sessions of yoga. Remember that children under the age of 12 years get free board.

    Lodging tips:

    Ask for rooms located in the second building, which overlook the swimming pool and the sea directly. The swimming pool is just a few feet away from the terraces of the rooms on the ground floor. On the top floor of the main building, two penthouses share a large terrace overlooking the sea - perfectly convenient for groups of friends. However, it should be avoided by the elderly or disabled guests because you have to climb four staircases to get there. In the first building with the reception, there is an apartment (on the fourth floor) and also a studio room (on the ground floor with a large private terrace) equipped with a kitchen, a king-size bed and an sofa bed - ideal for families.

      Casa Maravilla Eco Lodge is more of a quiet guesthouse away from the Cabarete hubbub rather than an actual hotel. Comprising three suites and a bohio, the lodge is located right on the beach - one of the quietest - about half-way between Cabarete and Sosua, both of which are a five minute drive away. This is a charming and tranquil pied à terre for guests not wanting to go with a conventional accommodation option. Best of all is that you can literally be in the water within 30 seconds of getting out of bed.

      One of our favourite hotels in the Dominican Republic, if not our favourite, the very chic yoga-focused Natura Cabana comes extremely highly recommended for its perfect balance between well-being, comfort, quality, location and aesthetics. A boutique hotel of 10 beautifully appointed bungalows complete with hammocks, dotted around a tropical garden of almond and palm trees right on a secluded beach. Sounds like a dream? Well, it is.
