You'll appreciate the location of this well-managed hotel and residential enclave with its own beachfront and gardens, just a few minutes' walk east of the noise of town yet also just minutes from the happening bars and restaurants. It's a favorite among well-heeled Dominicans, hip Americans, families and international guests. Spacious suites with full kitchens are the best deals; the basic unit has two full bedrooms, but room dividers can turn one larger unit into two smaller ones. You might ask for the art-deco Building 111. The views from the penthouses are knockout and an excellent value if three couples share. The oceanfront restaurant now qualifies as fine dining; service is efficient and caring and the palm trees are illuminated with white twinkle lights, making it a romantic setting, too. Ask about the 10% discount for cash.

I have traveled far and wide but seldom have I ever encountered such a tranquil and lovely setting as Velero Beach Resort. I stumbled across the place mostly because TripAdvisor had it rated do highly. Now I know why. The resort is really a condo/hotel nestled right on the crescent tip of the Cabarete beach. The location is perfect because you are close enough to enjoy the nightlife without having to contend with its constant musical bombardment.
You can exercise on the beach (they have a yoga lady), hang in a hammock, nosh at the beach club and never have to leave the premises. I will definitely be back to Velero Beach Resort and recommend it highly to anyone, travel savvy or newbie, who is trekking along the north coast of the Dominican Republic.
