This place was a hidden surprise, which I serendipitously discovered. Isn’t it always like that?! The place, the food and owners did not disappoint.
Let me start with the property, it is a quaint B & B, owners placed immense thought in the details of the suites, so as for you to feel at home. I really felt I was at home. Meticulously clean( I don’t know about you, but I believe it is IMPORTANT!) Loved my serene time at the pool and the garden. What makes it different is your suite is separate from the owners dwelling which is usually the opposite. In essence, you have your privacy, a BIGLY plus! BTW, there is a semi-private beach, only 40-sec walk at that. There were times I was the only one on the beach.
Now for the best part, you are gonna want to sit down for this:) THE FOOD! This B & B has a small bistro on site. Basically you have your own private Chef. Did I mention the Chef’s delectable meals are included with your stay?? My food was always a surprise as it was Chef’s Choice. A nice break from the real world of constant options and decision making. They are also open to the public. Best pancakes I have ever had!!! All in all, they made my stay special and discovered a new essence of love for the Dominican Republic.
Will definitely stay at Atabey on my next adventure but for all you locals a spot you should not miss!!
