Worst possible hotel in Cabarete, or world

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 19, 2007

Me and my partner of 14 years decided to go back to the Dominican Republic, this time we wanted to explore the north coast, we did some searches on gay site, and found the site of Hotel Arcos, we found it a bit pricey , but compared with US standards we hoped to treat ourselves. What a Disappointment, not only the room had leaks, the pillows smell putrid, the staff was never to be seen, mind you , not taken care of other patrons as we where the only ones there....
We decided to leave the next day, but the "Executive Suite " we paid in advance could not be reimbursed back to us. Horrible, just because its gay does not mean that it has to be a good hotel is all that we can tell you, when we got back I started to have a feverish sense all over my body, and my partner thought that I should have it check, as we had lunch in Hotel Arcos the first and last time, after some blood test they discovered that I had malaria, something that can be treated... at least we can here in the US, all the poor people we saw there in the proximity of the Hotel .... Begging and you just don't feel comfortable.
We are the lucky ones as we could move/and afford somewhere else, but if you want something special this place is not it.

Gay Hotel in Cabarete

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 27, 2006

Hotel Arcos is an All-Inclusive boutique hotel. It is just for gay men. It is gay owned and run and all the staff are gay.

The hotel is beautifully designed. It is very South Beachy / Ibiza-ish.

Unique Quality: The restaurant is gourmet standard. The Hotel is All-Inclusive, but rather than the buffet-style canteen food All-Inclusive hotels provide, this hotel has waiter service and menus. The food is prepared to order and is really some of the best food I have ever eaten. Despite all this, the restaurant is not open to the public, so you would have to stay in the hotel if you wanted to experience the food, and only gay men are allowed to stay there.

Directions: 3 kms from the centre of Cabarete in the direction of Rio San Juan, 1km after the turn off for Camino Del Sol is the turn on the left (driving from Cabarete) for Jardin Deportivo. Hotel Arcos is the second building on the right.
