We stayed in the treehouse at El Cabito for two days. Rosa and Tomeu are wonderful people. Just note that this is not a luxury hotel. It is wonderful property owned by two people who are living their lives to the fullest. They do their best to make you feel welcome, and I thought they did a terrific job. The...

My rating above is for the Cabana me and a friend stayed in for 3 days. The cabana is cute and quaint as well as eco friendly. The views from the balcony were magical and being amongst several animals made for an interesting stay (the owners have a goat named Tacones, several dogs, cats, horses, chickens, etc). It is also...

Living in a treehouse is always a dream to me, it becomes true at El Cabito! indeed rustic and tranquil, and lots of animals, 6 dogs, 2 cats, 2 peacocks, 3-4 horses, truly funny! It is not a luxury accommodation, however if you like nature not afraid of bugs, it is gonna be an interesting experience! Rosa and Tomeu are...

El Cabito was the best accomodation during our trip. It is a few rustic natural tree houses in the jungle, it gives you calm and a lot of privacy and they are full of cute details that reminds you that you are at a seaside. The whole place looks like from a lifestyle magazine and is also situated in a...

We were staying at Grand Paradise during the big winds, waves and tides a week ago. Easy walk. When we arrived we were "awed" by the power of the waves crashing into the cliffs with seaspray easily going higher than the cliffside deck.

We booked El Cabito after seeing a review in the Guardian newspaper which recommended as one of the top places to stay in the Caribbean on a budget. We weren't disappointed. The restaurant served the best food we had in the Dom Rep - everything totally fresh and many dishes with a Spanish flavour. The view from the restaurant is...

This place is all about the restaurant, which is amazing, if pricey, although the only vegetarian option for my partner was a Paella for two people, so I couldn't try the fish options. The rooms are fine if you don't need privacy, (no windows, and apparently no locks, although we managed to somehow lock ourselves out and had to climb...

This was our home sweet home in Las Galeras, Samana, Dominican Republic. El Cabito is well known by adventurous souls as a must visit place to eat. Even the famous American Chef Anthony Bourdain ventured here, purposely to satisfy his taste buds with the best seafood dishes in Las Galeras. But not many people know that El Cabito is also...
