Kibayo is such a stunning little oasis.. I almost don't want to give it away. Sitting off the beaten path of 'downtown' Cabarete, this beautiful boutique hotel is a get-away from the getaway.
The rooms are delightfully airy and super clean with very comfortable beds, the breakfast is delicious (served with warm smiles), and the grounds are fabulous. They have tons of classes and events too! On top of all of this the owners and staff are absolutely lovely and so much damn fun to be around (Seriously, thank you). The care and love that has gone into Kibayo truly shows.

Kibayo Cabarete is a wonderful place to spend your vacation. The rooms are very tastefully decorated and you can relax in the large garden. The owners Estée & Taïf and their team make sure you lack nothing! In short, highly recommended!

We enjoyed this paradise spot for 2.5 weeks! Lovely peaceful backyard where you have lots of space to do your own thing, in addition you can supp on the adjacent lagoon. It is ten min walk from the kite club, giving you a perfect base for kitesurfing!
We highly recommend going to this place in cabarete!
