I stayed at this hotel back in June of 2010. I really enjoy how its extremely quiet and relaxing so if you're looking to be in a quiet, beautiful place for a few days this place is PERFECT! I don't remember the owner's name of hotel, but there is a bar alongside the pool where you can eat for an additional price and he and his wife will cook for you. It's also very secure. No one can enter the main gate without a key, and to go on the beach you must have a key since the gate is locked.
Now the downside is that it's a little further out from the center of Cabarete where all the main shops and restaurants are so if you plan on going out there I'd recommend taking the guagua or a taxi. I DO NOT recommend walking there at night...even if you're in a group. It's about a good 15-20 minutes walk...maybe even more. Another disadvantage was there was no way for me to buy and cook my own food so I had no choice but to eat at the bar, and the prices aren't reasonable. However, there may be some rooms in that provide small kitchens for you to prepare your own food (not too sure though).
Definitely go out there and interact with the locals.
