Villa Taina Review

Smack amid the action, steps down from the main drag, this small, German-owned inn encapsulates the original spirit of Cabarete, catering to the independent traveler who wants bigger and nicer digs than those in a surf camp. Included in the room rate is a generous breakfast buffet at Serenada, the beachside restaurant adjacent to Villa Taina's kite-windsurfing center; your fellow coffee drinkers may be shielded by German and French newspapers. By night, the revamped restaurant serves international cuisine, with special buffet theme nights. The room interiors (a standard-issue tile floor, wicker furnishings) are nothing to write home about, but this beach hotel is a solid value. Rooms above the ground level that front the beach are quieter. Wi-Fi is free in the rooms, lobby, and restaurant. The Kitesurf & Windsurf Center offers a wide range of sports activities and the latest equipment (at an additional cost); guests get a complimentary lesson.
