We spent 24 beautiful days at the El Magnifico Bldge 6 second floor. The accomodations are great with balconies on each bedroom and a spacious covered front balcony where we were able to sit every day. The hot tube was just down the path and we used it every nite. All the staff; Lisa, Olga, Carlos were more than accomodating...

My husband and two grown daughter recently spent 10 glorious nights at Magnifico. Lisa and Olga and all the staff were incredibly helpful. Any questions were always answered promptly and thoroughly (l would often email and night and have an answer first thing when they got into the office.) We stayed in the Penthouse in Building 6 and it was...

Beautiful villas, awesome kitchens and common areas, very nice bedrooms and common ground; only downside is not having direct access to a swim-able beach.

I went to check this place out for a meditation retreat and what a tranquil place. Gerard and his wife Amelia have put all their passion into the place and the results show. The lush gardens and stone walkways all over the property are magical. lots of little "hideaways". Great location - nice and quiet and private but very close...

I was extremely impressed with this hotel! The rooms, the property, and pool were all extremely clean and organized. Even though it is near the main road you cannot hear the cars. The owner’s first language is English so it is easy to communicate with her. Overall this is one of the nicest places I have been!

WOW! This place was perfect! Walking distance from a super market, rental phone areas, cab service, beach, and Casino (we didn't have a chance to check it out). Maid server, great staff (Olga is very friendly). I read the reviews on this site before I visited, and thought the burial ground was a joke (it wasn't lol). And there are...

We stayed ONE NIGHT at El Magnifico on our third and last night in Cabarete. We were so disappointed with our hotel, actually one located very close to El Magnifico, that we walked over to see if they had a room. The young woman at the front desk not only went out of her way to show us several rooms...

We stayed here for five nights with our three children. The grounds are beautiful, the best I saw in the area. Our penthouse was spacious and very clean. Although the beach right in front of the hotel is not good for swimming, our boys enjoyed messing around in the tidal pools and looking for coral and shells. Bianca and her...

I stayed here for 4 nights in May-sorry for delay writing-Got this recommendation from a friend. I was truly blown away. This is more like an apartment than hotel room, large living area-seperated bedroom-ocean view. Grocery store just a 3 minute walk away, centro Cabarete is about a 10-15 minute walk or 3-4 via moto.
