I loved this hotel. I am a camper at heart, and loved how open this hotel was. And it is in a very peaceful location. I could lie in bed and hear and see the ocean. I spent most of the day relaxing on a lounge chair reading. A car is recommended as it is between two towns, but easy to reach either. This would also be a great place for a small group to go if they like a rustic experience with the night life and beach of Cabarete and Sosua within easy reach.

The Palace didn't start as a luxury hotel but rather a private residence. But now it is open to the public to get a glimpse of what it must be like to live like royalty! The location is ideal. The Cliff House is literally built into the ocean-side cliff. The main building (The Palace) is set back across wonderful landscaping and terraced walkways with fantastic views. A third building (the guesthouse) has 4 guest rooms as well.
This is an ideal location for a relaxing and private vacation. Meals are set out by the staff on the back porch which receives a wonderful breeze all day. Other covered porches and gazebos offer relief from the sun when needed. The pool is comfortable and refreshing. Local wildlife includes resident chickens and peacocks.
However, all of these amazing facilities pale in comparison to the tremendous staff whose only mission seems to be to pamper you and make you feel like you are the only guests in the hotel. To be fair, on two nights, we were. But the morning, afternoon, and evening staff were attentive, courteous, helpful, polite and right there whenever they were needed. The service is truly world-class--unmatched at all but the most exclusive luxury international hotels.
Details: Location on the ocean, not as some Google Maps put it in Rio San Juan. Look for the kidney-shaped pool. ATM available in town; staff will give you a ride. Get a ride from airport thru the hotel to save hassle; meal plan available at hotel too.

My boyfriend and I just got back from Natura. The Cabanas were gorgeous and the food at the restaraunt was amazing. Steps away from thr beach, felt like a private beach! Sounds of the ocean at night was so nice and calming. I will definitely be coming back!

the hotel is only five minutes away from the center of cabarete and that means is far from the noisy bar that play loud music until morning, so if you are a light sleeper like me than this hotel is perfect. the custodian of the hotel(Andres) was super helpful in anything I needed .in addition, they will not charge you anything if you have a friend staying over(some of the hotel charges 30 dollars).just loved it!!!

"Serene, quiet and beautiful describe this destination."
Victoria Resort is peaceful and gorgeous. The staff is extremely friendly, the food is excellent and it is in the middle of a golf course. They have a golf cart available at any time to take you to the beach. Walking there was easy enough though, because it's only about a quarter of a mile away! Food: so many fresh fruits, so many choices for entrees, including local favorites, cakes, fresh vegetables, soups, fresh breads, omelet station, carving station, casseroles, etc. It's a lovely place. All drinks are included but I was disappointed with the wine selection. Other than that, I highly recommend the Victoria Resort.
