Here is a name that will have you dreaming, still riding on the success of the film Pirates of the Caribbean. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed! It's not Jack Sparrow who'll be waiting at your arrival but rather a very friendly couple made up of a Frenchman and his Spanish-German wife! This small environmentally-friendly hotel offers comfortable suites and a charming garden surrounding a swimming pool. The Pirata del Caribes is located in the fishing village of Paraíso (Spanish for paradise) in the region of Barahona, one of the best preserved areas in the Dominican Republic. It is in an excellent location for heading off to explore the wonders of the surroundings: Lake Enriquillo, Bahia de las Aguilas, Oveido Lagoon.

    On the seafront in the fishing village of Paraiso, 25 miles from Barahona, in the south-west of the Dominican Republic, the best preserved region in the country. It takes about 3h 30m by car to reach the airport of Santo Domingo, the country's capital.

    Accommodation 8.95 /10

    The four suites at the Pirata del Caribes are reached using stairs that are not suitable for the elderly or disabled. Absolutely gorgeous, you will be completely comfortable in the 55m² of space (including a patio). With a palm-leaf roof, light colours and mahogany furniture built by the local carpenter, there is no doubt about it, you will be been immersed in the local atmosphere and all the better for it!
    The king size four-poster bed made of mahogany wood is very comfortable and the mosquito net will protect you from the little critters. The flat-screen TV offers numerous channels. A computer is available free of charge for surfing the Internet. You will also have an air-conditioner doubling as a ceiling fan, a free digital code safe and free Wi-Fi. However, there is no refrigerator because of a problem with the generator. Room service is available 24/7. A large 18m² terrace overlooks the swimming pool and the sea. On it you will find a wooden table and two armchairs.
    The spacious bathroom is equipped with a large shower with a flexible showerhead, a toilet, a double wash basin, toothpaste and welcome toiletries, including homemade soap made at the hotel. Guests are provided with two free bottles of water upon arrival.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    Couples on their honeymoon will be at home in this establishment, which opened in 2011, thanks to the four comfortable and charming suites. A visit of the grounds should start with the lovely exotic garden, where you can admire superb wild orchids, palm trees and other fruit trees like orange trees. You can cool off in the rectangular swimming pool, surrounded by a wooden terrace equipped with deckchairs, canvas parasols and a hammock. A shower is concealed in the tropical vegetation. Not even the singing of the green woodpeckers and hummingbirds, not to mention that of the endemic birds of the region, such as the Cra-Cra (green-backed heron) or the Jaboas, can disturb the peace and quiet that reigns here.

    Food and drink 8.45 /10

    For your meals, it's when you want where you want, beside the swimming pool or on your terrace. A la carte, you can choose from Dominican, Italian, Spanish or international-style dishes. The continental breakfast is included in the price of your room.

    To know

    A walkway takes you to the mouth of a river flowing into the Caribbean Sea, five minutes from the hotel, where you will enjoy going for a swim. The French owner and his Spanish-German wife will be delighted to give you plenty of advice and help make your stay an incredible one. A computer is provided free of charge for guests to surf the Internet and every room has a free Wi-Fi Internet connection.
