The Hummingbird Cabarete
Reviews (5)
5 out of 5

The Hummingbird Cabarete is a unique, friendly and very affordable accommodation for individual travelers and surfers, in walking distance to the beach and the center of Cabarete.

You can book different types of apartments, but all of them come with private bathroom and kitchen. We have a big pool, 24hr assistance and security, free wifi, great common areas and activities for the renters. We also do offer daily breakfast for only RD$ 150.

Location

Cabarete is one of the best places in the world for surfing, kitesurfing & for windsurfing. There are many schools around and also different places that rent equipment for all the water sports. We're happy to help you find the right spot for you!

Besides the water sports Cabarete is a very special and colourful little town. You'll find people from all over the world here. The main beach strip is covered in one nice international restaurant or bar/club after the other and they all have very cool and comfortable seating lounges outside in the beach. A very chill place to hang out during the day and big party at night.

Our hotel itself is located in the Callejon de la Loma, which is kind of the artist area of Cabarete. It's in walking distance to everything, but very tranquil because a bit off the street. And also here is the place if you do not only want to be in contact with other tourists, but also locals. You'll find one small local run business after the other in the Callejon, which all do have normal dominican prices to not tourist prices. Go to the close by colmado where the locals hang out and have a beer with them ;)

“Beautiful property; nice staff; nice hotel dog (her name is princesa). We got the slightly higher priced room and it was very big, great kitchen, new fridge, etc. Would defiantly stay again. So much better than the hotel I used to stay at in Caberete.”
