Ended up staying here for 3weeks durning my visit to the Dominican Republic. Was referred by a friend that is a local resident, and I was grateful she did. Amazing established! Best rates in town,very clean, all amenities were regularly up kept, pool,shared kitchen,bedding,bathrooms,and moto or bike rentals. They have a tour guide and kite surf instructor on site, plus food delivery and bar. The staff welcomes you like your family, there always offering advice,suggestions and invites to make your stay the best it can be. I truly felt blessed to have been there. In my humble opinion, this is the best and only place you should stay in Cabarete. Infinite love to the castle crew!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hostel LagunaPark is a welcoming, clean and safe budget place to stay for young and open minded travelers. Turns out most people that arrive in LagunaPark are solo travelers, so in one way LagunaPark is the perfect for the ones that travel alone, because all guests happen to bond really fast with each other, help each other with tips and tricks and no one ever gets bored or lonely here. On the other hand the hostel has great facilities and discounts for group trips. Big rooms with 2-8 beds, en-suite bathrooms (shower & WC), big living room with cosy sofas, plasma TV and free WiFi. All guests are sharing a very well equipped kitchen, which we really take care of to be clean. For the ones that don't want to make their own breakfast, the HouseBar offers a little breakfast buffet for a very economic price and even cheaper if you sign up for it up front! LagunaPark is LagunaPark because the hostel is right in front of the beautiful natural park of Cabarete, the Lagoon. The outside area of the property is a big tropical garden with swimming pool and sunbeds, a BBQ area for little parties. Usually BBQs happen spontaneously like once or twice a week, family style everyone makes one dish and then we share...we've seen some spectacular things there, specialties from all around the world. LagunaPark became a place with a really nice vibe, family atmosphere, a place to spend only a night or even two month. No matter what you'll leave with good fun memories and a couple of new friends that you've made! ... more less
