    i booked my bungalow off the hostel/bugdet accommodations link from the lonely planet website. below is a link to the room i stayed it, but there are many options available here.

    when you get there, there's a long narrow patio raised about four stairs above the ground where you can sit and watch the cars and motos go by. just inside there is a bar and four computers with internet access. one of the computers has a shabby keyboard, so if you have a spare, i'm sure they'd appreciate your donation. i don't think electronic equipment is easy to obtain there.

    my room was as pictured. i paid for two people, because i was afraid they'd put someone else in my room if they didn't. i don't know if this was necessary though. some rooms have a/c, mine did not. i was fine with the ceiling fan. let them know in advance if it's a priority for you so they can place you accordingly.

    also, i met some people who had a kitchen, but only one set of silverware. they didn't have extras.

    minifridge was awesome. if i put my water bottle in the back, it froze...and melted over the course of my time on the beach. ice melts quickly here.

    the buttons on my phone didn't work. however, i also found this to be not a huge deal. i just walked over to my friend's rooms instead of calling and used the phone at the front desk when i changed my flight to stay two extra days. (the front desk has airline contact numbers, etc) i don't think there's anywhere in town for them to buy something like a new phone.

    the front desk also had towels you could rent for the beach. you could bring your own or misbehave like me and use your small white bath towels from the room.

    sometimes there is a restaurant. it was not open during my stay. you could sit out on a covered patio, overlooking the pool, where one might dine. i found a bathroom beneath this that you could use without going back to you're room, while swimming in the pool, etc.

    i should have some pictures to add, but i haven't developed them yet.

    Unique Quality: this place was beautiful (landscaping-wise), especially for the price. they were constantly cleaning...sweeping the grounds. i saw the pool being cleaned each morning. the pictures could not do this place justice. it felt pretty secure, being off the public beach. also, i was super happy i was not right outside the nightlife down the street (about a five minute walk) also, the name KAOBA is a type of wood, composing much of the furniture around town.

    Directions: on the south side of the street (not the beach side of the street). i believe it was the second hotel on the right, coming from puerto plata through sosua, just at the beginning of the tourist strip of Cabarete.

hotel alegria or casa blanca

by wrightsville

Can anyone give me any advice on which hotel to choose from? They both seem within my budget and close to each other. I will be in Cabarete for 10 days at the beginning of April and want to make sure I stay somewhere I will be comfortable. Any advice would be great. Thanks.

hey - i just got back from the DR and some time in Cabarete. Be warned - it is frantically busy. If you haven't travelled to a third world country before, the culture shock will be, well, shocking.
anyway, Casa Blanca is cheap and has a small pool but is right on the edge of town, a bit far out. i stayed at Hotel Kaoba but recommend Alegria - supposed to be quite nice.
any questions about CAbarete or DR feel free to e-mail me -

Hotel Kaoba

by epgepg

Hey - how was Hotel Kaoba? I am going to DR in a few weeks and was thinking of booking a room at Hotel Kaoba. How far is it from the kitesurfing beach? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Re: hotel alegria or casa blanca

Both are nice. Alegria has not pool so we went with Casa Blanca. Great breakfast and lunch right there at Claro's. We like the beach, couple hundred feet away, and that is closer than at some large all inclusives we stayed at. But we also like to sit by a pool and read and that took us to the Casa Blanca. Rooms at $27 worked out to about $14 per person, not easy to beat. I think in low season they go down to $22 but I am not sure.
