No ac, no wifi unbearable heat, many bugs. Unusable beach front, nice view but to strong waves..seems seperated from the restaurants. There was a nice family that provided service but was just not comfortable.

This disgruntled guest booked a room for 2 people and arrived with 4. Since we're a double occupancy hotel, we informed her that she would need to book another room for the 2 unscheduled and unpaid guests. She insisted that all 4 of them needed to stay in one room and since we couldn't accommodate them we allowed all of... More

Small and coquette, Barefoot sits just minutes away from downtown Cabarete. What a great time I had!! I stayed at Barefoot for a few days during late April early May and the weather was amazing. Their friendly staff is very sweet and accommodating they made me feel right at home. My room was comfortable with a balcony facing the ocean... More

We spent 7 days at the barefoot beach including hosting our wedding there. At first glance the hotel has a certain "charm" you just don't find at most hotels. As you enter thru the large sliding doors you begin to see the true beauty of the hotel and its simplicity. The hotel has a homely feeling and the infinity pool... More

We spent 4 nights at Barefoot, after carefully researching our options in and around Cabarete. We opted for Barefoot because of the great reviews on TripAdvisor, and because we didn't want to be right downtown, yet still wanted beach access. Pros: Location - for us was a plus, although it is about 2km outside Cabarete proper. However, it has beach... More

I spent a wonderful week at the Barefoot Beach Pad in mid-December. It was my first time in Cabarete and was a great place to relax and forget about work. I stayed in the ocean front upstairs suite with two balconies, one overlooking the ocean and one above the pool, and couldn't have asked for more. The breeze blew through... More

I've been visiting Barefoot for the past 2 years now and I couldn't imagine a better place to spend my vacation days. I've also come to think of it as a home away from home and an awesome getaway from the stresses of life and work back in the states. It's tranquil, peaceful, friendly & attentive staff always make me... More

In fact, nearly half of our guests are now regulars or come to stay because of recommendations from previous guests. We understand it might be difficult to satisfy 100% of our guests, but we...
