Thoroughly recommend the place for its proximity to Cabarete, it’s views from the balcony, it’s closeness to the kite surfing schools, and it’s wonderful gardens.

We agree with the comments. The gardens are probably the best in Cabarete

Wonderful place to stay. The complex is very private, and the owners were very helpful along with the onsite security/staff that keeps the place beautiful. The unit is great with very nice furnishings and updated cabinetry throughout. The view is amazing. Don’t have anything bad to say about the entire visit. Thanks we had a great time.

Now that I have stayed at Palacio Atlantico, I could not stay anywhere else!
Stayed Aug 2017
My husband, daughter, niece and myself stayed for nine days in August 2017. The tropical gardens around the condo we’re beautiful beyond belief, and it was nice after a long day on excursions to enjoy the breathtaking gardens while swimming in the pool. There were 2 dogs on the property that the girls fell in love with and wanted to take home! There was always assistance on the property if needed, the Gardner worked hard all day to make the gardens look spectacular, and twice during the week a women cleaned the condo and did some laundry. The condo was beyond perfect. It was breathtaking to wake up to the fresh air from our wide open view from either the outside patio overlooking the ocean to the view from inside. The condo was so comfortable from living room to bedrooms. The kitchen had everything you needed in order to cook, but we ate dinner out often because it was so convenient. If we went out on the beach about 30 yards there was a reasonable priced hut-type restaurant with good food. Initially I was worried about how to travel about the 1 1/2 miles to Cabarete, but the girls and I quickly figured it out and could literally find take a van or taxi in 2 minutes for $1 to $2 person. I want to thank Kathy and her staff for making this trip wonderful.

We had a really nice stay at Palacio Atlantico in Cabarete, Dominican Republic. This was our 4th year there. We were pleased to see all the improvements that had been made to the condo since our last visit. New kitchen cabinets, a fresh new coat of paint, a very convenient hot water heater, new pillows for the outdoor furniture, beautiful curtains for the bedrooms and a big flatscreen tv in the living room.. All the changes and improvements were much appreciated and made us feel like this was a new condo. This improvemen’s were all due to the efforts of Kathy the property manager. She Is lovely, helpful and really cares about the property owner and his success, and the comfort of the tenant. Thanks Kathy for a job well done.

This vacation was more beautiful than we had ever imagined. The view from the condo was fantastic from every window, the gardens with all of the tropical plants and flowers… breathtaking.
We watched the ocean come alive every day Kite Surfers, and sailboarders and with the beach just steps away, made wonderful walks to town.
We stayed for 9 weeks and loved everyday!
The owners and long term guests were just like family.
The new manager (Kathy) did a wonderful job making sure that we were comfortable and that we had everything that we needed to make our stay unforgettable.

Perfect spot for a kite vacation
Stayed Jun 2015
We had a great time and were lucky enough to stay for 3 weeks at this condo. We spent most of our time kiting right in front of the condo and lounging around the pool. The gardens are gorgeous and the views from the condo are spectacular. It had everything we needed for cooking and cocktails and we spent a lot of time relaxing on the front balcony. We loved it! We will be back for sure.

Glorious gardens and views
Stayed Apr 2015
The location and size of this lovely small complex could not be better. With just 6 units it feels personal and the gardens and grounds are like a secret tropical garden, just steps from the beach. You don’t really see other properties and the pool is a quiet oasis.
We rented two units over the space of a week here. This one could use some improvements. While the big kitchen was lovely, there was mold and literally, mushrooms, growing in the cabinets and cockroaches. This is one of the hazards of traveling in the tropics but was not the case in other places we have stayed. We also repeatedly asked about the WiFi which only worked occasionally and was never really fixed while we were there — a problem since we had planned to work and it had worked well in the other unit. The air conditioning in the master bedroom was terrific but the other bedroom is right next to the circus camp and can be a bit noisy. And, as other reviewers have stated, the mattress in the main bedroom is not the most comfortable.
We were happy we rented a car as the dining options in the immediate area are pretty limited but it is about a half-hour walk down the beach to Cabarete which has plenty of great places to eat and the walk on the beach is a good way to burn off dinner.
Sia and her husband mean well and were very kind and I hope they can use this and other reviews to remedy some of the problems that we and others have encountered. They have a beautiful spot.

I Loved This Place

Oh my what a beautiful place! The view from the balcony is amazing and the peace that listening to ocean waves brings cannot be better. Plus I got to do yoga next door. Fantastic!

Can’t say enough good things about this place. We traveled with our 6 mth old baby for the month of April and it was amazing. Secure property but in a nice relaxed way (protected by guard dog and staff). There are only 6 condos so it is quiet, had the pool to ourselves most of the time. A bunch of really nice people own properties here and some were around in this time and were super friendly. Extreme hotel was next door where we ate alot and did kite lessons and yoga. Awesome to be right on kite beach, this is the perfect location for a family if you are wanting to take shifts between kiting/baby time easily. My husband and I were both able to kite in the afternoon and even be able to watch each other from the balcony. We would love to return!

A Wonderful Hideaway Right at the Beach
Stayed Feb 2014
Toni & Ron T.Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania
My husband and I just spent 2 weeks at Palacio Atlantico. The condo was spacious with an unbelievable huge deck that overlooks the ocean. We had our coffee out there every morning and gave little thought to the freezing weather at home. The apartment was nicely appointed; neat clean and fully equipped. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Many thanks to Abba & Susan. They were so helpful. The best thing about it for my husband was the lounge chair on the deck, which is where he spent most of his time. Watching the kiters and the ocean. We love the condo and plan to return next year. Our son came and spent a week with us, he hated to go home. The town of Cabarete is very pretty but not as touristy as some of the other destinations in the DR. We found we were able to get a better feel for the Dominican culture there. We felt very safe and secure and many thanks to the watchdog Capi who once he had our scent, accepted us fully. I would recommended the condo to anyone who wants a relaxed quiet get away. Whether you are chilling out by the pool, enjoying the gorgeous grounds, the condo’s deck, Oh and there’s another deck just a few steps from the beach, you are sure to enjoy yourself.

Recommended. This quiet 2-bedroom place is like an oasis. Sea breezes blow into all rooms of the apartment. Sunrise and sunset can be seen from the balcony with amazing view to the sea. The sunset can be an alive show of lurid colors covering the whole sky. You can relax on four chairs below a thatched roof-umbrella right in front of the beach. The beautiful well-cared tropical garden between the building and the sea adds that “quality without a name” to the place. The staff is friendly and so united that resembles a single family. There is a small pool set in a nice garden. Right next door there is kiteboarding, stand up paddling, yoga, etc. You can make arrangements to have fresh and alive lobster, shrimps, crab, fish delivered to your door.

We loved this property, the condo was spacious and well-appointed. We especially loved the deck with views of the ocean — it was a favorite. And the beautiful gardens were a relaxing respite to read and enjoy being outdoors. The kites were a joy to watch! We would love to return. Thanks to Abba and Susan for their warm hospitality.

We spent two weeks at this property. The location was very private and secure, we always felt safe.
Kite beach was beautiful, many enjoyable hours were spent watching the kite boarding either from the lounge chairs or on the beach.
As advertised, there were a few restaurants very close to the property, however we were able to walk down the beach to Cabarete where there were several restaurants right on the beach. Taxis were plentiful to get us back to the property.
The gardens at the property were spectacular, very lush and tropical. the pool was well maintained and very private.
The property itself was spacious and nicely decorated, the huge balcony was a bonus, a great place to watch the ocean, and the activities on the beach. the kitchen was well equipped.
Cleanliness at this property was an issue with us, before we could put our groceries away and into the fridge/ freezer, we had to defrost the freezer. The oven in the stove had not been cleaned in a long time. There were coffee grounds in the coffee pot as well as old coffee. Maid service was questionable, floors were washed, and the water was put in the kitchen sink, leaving a sandy residue in the sink. We only had one linen change, our last nine days we did not have maid service or clean linen. Initially we were given two bath towels, one for each of us, I did ask for more towels, we did get them, however I was reminded that this was the DR, not America.We had trouble flushing the toilet, it came down to having a pail of water handy to flush the toilet.
We had the bedroom with the Queen bed, the mattress was horribly uncomfortable, the last two nights I ended up sleeping on the couch. The bed in the other bedroom was acceptable.
Our concerns were addressed, and with some, resolved. At the end of the day, we decided to accept what we had and enjoy kite beach and Cabarete.
I would not recommend this property to friends or family unless some of these issues were resolved
Published Apr 15, 2013
These issues have been addressed. The maid has been given a checklist of things to clean between renters, we did an inventory of the linen closet and bought new towels, to insure that each person staying in the condo has a full set twice a week. We bought a new 12 cup coffeemaker. Some of these things are subjective. We bought the bed in the master bedroom for ourselves and find it quite comfortable.
This hidden gem has beautiful grounds!

We loved the privacy and beauty of this resort! It was within walking distance of a few restaurants on the beach, and within a short drive of the hustle and bustle in the main part of Cabarete. We used the public transportation, “gua gua,” as it was an experience in itself, AND it saved us a lot of money.
The units are spacious, just be sure you pick one that has air conditioning, if that matters to you. It did to us. There are two bathrooms in the 2 bedroom units, and they are well decorated.
The maid service was great, the pool is simply gorgeous, and the people who own the other units were very accommodating.
There is no common laundry, but you can pay to have yours done by housekeeping staff (some renters will include in your package).
The units are very close to the beach, and it is fun to watch the kites.
Loved the “watch dog” who greeted us on our way in and out of the property, though we always felt very safe on the grounds and beach, regardless.
We truly enjoyed our stay at Palacio Atlantico!

2 weeks in paradise!
Stayed Mar 2012
We were here for 2 weeks in March/April and loved every minute. The complex is private (only 6 units) and well maintained. Our condo was as expected – we had everything we needed and were extremely comfortable for our entire stay (except for the day we had to leave, which came way too soon). Great location, right on the beach. And an AWESOME deck to relax and enjoy the view while having our morning coffee and fresh pineapple. Lots of kiteboard action to enjoy as Extreme Hotel is next door. A leisurely walk on the beach will get you into Cabarete in under 30 minutes, however, we rented a scooter so it was only about 5 minutes. Once you get to Cabarete there a lots of great beach bars and restaurants to choose from. One of our favourites was Kahuna and Karaoke Thursday. We also found some of the best deals and food away from the beach. Get to enjoy more local flavour that way. Luis Restaurant (not really a restaurant, more like an open-air, covered BBQ stand) was just outside of town and had the best BBQ chicken. We had a fantasic 2 weeks here and would not hesitate to come back again.
