The best place to stay in Cabarete is Vila#2. I have been to the Cabarete area twice per year on business for the past 7 years (so around 14 trips), I have stayed in a few villas and most of my trips I rented beach front condo rentals becasue I wanted to save a bit of money. I am so happy I decided to splurge this July. Villa #2 is the place you have to try. I am writing this review from my heart. It is the Gem of the area. I am a pro when it comes to the area and this is hands down the highest quality money can buy on Cabarete Beach. Full service maid, Chef, a pool overlooking the ocean with a large patio for entertaining. It should not be missed ot just save a few bucks. If you do t his you will be wanting to find me and thank me for this review. truly world class! Ask for Villa #2 tour if you visit Sea Horse ranch. One look and you'll see what I am talking about!!!
