Hotel du Parc is the ideal hotel for families visiting the vibrant and beautiful city of Medellin.  We loved the grand exterior and lobby, incredible service, and comfortable guestrooms.  Suites come fully equipped with a usable kitchen, city views, and insanely cozy beds. Extra beds can be added for those travelling with children and we loved the extra space ensuring we were never cramped throughout our stay.  The delicious breakfast was a perfect way to start the day and their freshly baked pastries were impossible to resist.  The boutique hotel is optimally located in the El Poblado area  surrounded by stylish cafes, restaurants, and boutiques.  We loved sampling the local fare and visited the small park only a few blocks away where we could pick up artisanal wares to bring home as souvenirs.  Staff are always on hand to make recommendations and arrange transport to the city’s sights and we loved being near the metro so we could easily access Medellin’s world famous metrocable. A perfect home away from home during your stay in the fun-filled city.

Our first trip to Medellin and we are so happy we were able to experience it with York Luxury Suites.  The modern and stylish five star property was ideal for our family and the perfect jumping off point for exploring the vibrant city.  We received a warm welcome at the chic and inviting lobby and were throughly impressed with the efficient service and accommodating guest relations team.  The modem suites feature a large open space incorporating a fully equipped kitchen, cozy lounge space, decadent queen beds, and panoramic city views.  Luxury facilities include a stunning rooftop pool, mouthwatering all day dining restaurant, and comfortable social spaces for guests.  We loved the central location making it easy to visit popular sights, museums, and shopping malls as well as check out the incredible dining scene.  Medellin was an amazing city full of fun, culture, and scenery and York Luxury Suites ensured a safe and comfortable stay alongside world class service.

Lettera Hotel, set at the heart of beautiful Medellin, is the perfect boutique hotel for a relaxing and enjoyable stay.  We loved the friendly ambiance, helpful staff, and modern and luxurious guestrooms.  The hotel boasted plenty of cozy social spaces to relax with coffee or wine and we enjoyed the outside courtyard surrounded in lush greenery and Medellin’s amiable spring weather.  Breakfast was served each morning with a variety of healthy and local options and guests could choose to enjoy it in the welcoming and light restaurant or cuddled up in bed for a lazy start to the day.  Lettera Hotel is located in the popular Poblado area, close to an array of boutiques, coffee shops, stylish restaurants and so much more, was ideal for exploring the sights of the city. We loved being near all the action but set back enough that the hotel was a quiet sanctuary for sleep and relaxation.  A great choice for families or couples looking for unbeatable service and high quality facilities and amenities at an optimal location in Medellin.

The undeniably stylish and charming Elcielo was my favourite hotel in Medellin.  As soon as you’re greeted at the entrance you know you’ll be treated to luxury and comfort.  I loved the modern yet elegant decor, impeccable and refined service, alongside grand suites with a fine attention to detail.  Our decadent bed felt like sleeping on a cloud and the alluring bathtub at the center of the suite was an indulgent spa like treat.  Their breakfast was leisurely and delicious with a variety of elevated international and local options. The rooftop is a welcome respite after a day in the city, where you can refresh in the stunning swimming pool or grab a cocktail at the relaxed bar area.  If you’re craving luxury and five star service alongside unbeatable style, El Cielo is the ideal option when visiting vibrant Medellin. Located in the buzzing and popular  El Poblado area it’s a perfect jumping off point for exploring the city.

La Romana brings a tranquil and idyllic side of the Dominican Republic.  We stayed at the welcoming and picturesque Bahia Principe Grand La Romana and throughly enjoyed the stunning all inclusive.  The classic guestrooms were great for families with a cozy lounge space and private outdoor terrace and we were only steps from the refreshing pool and golden sand beach.  The Caribbean resort sits on prime beachfront real estate with calm waters, palm tree fringed shores, and spectacular sunsets.  We loved the variety of activities including swimming pool games and sports, foam parties, a fully staffed Mini Club, and nightly entertainment for the whole family.  Foodies can choose from the international buffet or an array of a la carte restaurants and service was consistently helpful and efficient.  An optimal choice for those looking for a relaxing and scenic getaway in the Dominican Republic.

We loved the sprawling property complete with modern guestrooms, a variety of swimming pools, and optimal beachfront location.

Check out Camp David Ranch for unforgettable dining and scenery perched above Santiago in the Dominican Republic.  The hidden gem was one of our favorite experiences in the country and perfect for a day trip or overnight getaway when staying in the Puerto Plata region.  Our family loved the modern boutique guestrooms complete with stunning balcony views, the fresh air and serene ambiance, alongside an epic vantage point from the property’s unique location.  The restaurant is a must dine spot with a varied and mouthwatering menu created by talented Mexican chef, Chef Hector Mendez.  Admire the glittering views alongside delicious fare and cocktails in the evening and enjoy a breezy and tranquil breakfast on the open terrace before departure.  Perfect for celebrations and those looking to add a special something to their Dominican Republic Caribbean trip.

Cabarete is an ideal spot to learn how to surf, with a picturesque beach and vibrant community.  We were lucky enough to be welcomed at Surfbreak Cabarete where you’ll find a calm oasis, rustic bungalows, stunning tranquil gardens, and refreshing swimming pools ideal after a day at the beach.  The welcoming property ensures every detail is taken care of throughout your stay from surf lessons, yoga sessions, or kite surfing to the logistics of transfers, grocery shopping and so much more.

Their surf and kite surf school, Wave Soul Retreats, was perfect for our kids.  The entire team of coaches and instructors ensured we had an unforgettable time, the kids not only had fun but learned new skills, and were smiling throughout the day.  We loved meeting the dedicated owners who are not only welcoming but passionate about their business ensuring nothing is overlooked when hosting their guests.  Contact Wave Soul for a custom and memorable surf getaway for your family.

Set in picture perfect Cabarete, Sea horse Ranch is one of the most luxurious properties we’ve experienced in the Dominican Republic.  The sprawling estate boasts private villas in a safe and secure setting complete with staff, concierge, and luxury amenities.  Our family stayed in the stunning Shangrila Villa boasting five large bedrooms, decadent indoor and outdoor lounge areas, a refreshing swimming pool, beautifully manicured grounds, and unbeatable seafront location.  We made full use of the state of the art kitchen, rustic outdoor bbq and fire pit, and enjoyed having the staff prepare a full freshly cooked breakfast for us each morning.

Everything is taken care of during your stay at Seahorse Ranch from daily housekeeping to concierge services that assist with booking transport, tours, or fun activities at the property.  We had full access to The Beach Club where you can dip in the tranquil lagoon pools, enjoy panoramic turquoise sea views, and delve into delicious fare at the restaurant.  They also have on site tennis courts and private lessons and a Equestrian Center for avid riders.  We booked a family beach ride along the stunning coast and loved every minute with the friendly horses and our personal guide.

We had an amazing surf vacation at Hooked Cabarete.  The inviting and tranquil property is ideal for a family getaway where you’ll meet new friends and discover the vibrant Cabarete and Encuentro Beach area.  Surrounded by lush greenery and just a few minutes walk to the popular surf beach you’ll find plenty to do if you’re travelling with active children.  Ever and River loved their surf lessons with Pauhana Surf School where their incredible coaches ensured they had fun while catching the waves. They not only taught them the necessary skills but were animated and engaged ensuring the kids laughed and played while learning.  The relaxing swimming pool at Hooked was a welcome respite after a morning on the beach and we made full use of the facilities including a bbq, ping pong table, and private outdoor patio.  Our family studio was spacious and easily slept our family of four. The kids loved sharing the bunk beds and the fully equipped kitchen was perfect for preparing meals.  If you’re in search of a laidback and welcoming spot where you can surf, enjoy the beach, and feel right at home in the beautiful Dominican Republic paradise look no further than Hooked Cabarete.
