"Amazing Beach Front Kiteboarding & Yoga Trip! "
This was an awesome place to stay! I was there for a week, we had yoga twice a day and Kiteboarding lessons every day, and the instructors were amazing!!!
They provided lunch and dinner every day and it was delicious and a huge portions! I needed to refuel! It was also all locally sources and super healthy food. They also had smoothies and fruit for us in the morning, which was perfect for breakfast for me.
We also had unlimited Kiteboarding lessons!!! The instructors were amazing! All local DR guys and they were great teachers. Me and my buddy were able to get into the water and up on boards on day 2!!!
The facilities were great, it's right on the beach, we ate looking over the water every day. There's a great pool, and an awesome yoga loft with incredible views of the ocean. Couldn't have asked for anything more.
The staff was so amazing too! They were so sweet and accommodating to anything we needed. Any issues were fixed right away. And they were just sweet people. They really have a heart for the DR and sustainability in their community. They know everyone in the community and are really building a great community down there. You can also see this in the farm they have, which is such an awesome way to live a sustainable life.
An amazing trip! Thank you!

The yoga lessons were good and held in a nice place, although I found out that the teacher (and I guess not only her...) is living here illegally which doesn't seem very sustainable given how the hotel is claiming to support local life etc...

I think her name was Caroline. She had a warm inviting and welcoming personality. Her knowledge was excellent. I also loved the cats that would visit us around the hotel!

All the staff were so friendly and awesome!! They know how to keep you busy throughout your stay and I made so many friends while staying here! Definitely check out Sousa beach and Cabarete! I wish I could have stayed longer!! Thank you for everything! The surf class was so much fun and the bootcamp instructor, Mel, is so sweet and really helps you target every area of your body and fitness goals. The yoga class was so relaxing as you hear the waves crashing and feel the ocean breeze against your skin. Don’t be afraid to ride on the motor taxi! It’s not scary at all!! Also if you like night life then Latin nights are a blast in cabarete!

"Overall great experience"
The yoga loft is beautiful and it was amazing being right on the beach, seeing the sun set, and listening to the ocean waves during a yoga class. The room had what I needed. I didn't plan on being in the room much :) It was easy to get around and walk on the beach. The food was delicious and healthy. Also, as a solo traveling woman I was happy to find that I always felt safe, I went swimming, I made friends, and overall enjoyed my trip.

"Exceeded Expectations "
Chrissy, the yoga instructor, is excellent ... beautiful flows with a lovely view of the ocean. The activities that were included also exceeded my expectations. The farm tour with the tubing along the river was fun with divine scenery. The SUP YOGA was in a magnificent spot as well. The surfing was great for beginners and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our group was amazing! I would definitely return !

"Best mini holiday and retreat I’ve had!"
Very friendly staff! It was the first time I visited Cabarete, yet I felt safe and at home right away. The food (breakfast and dinner) is of amazing quality (with organic and gluten free options) so props to the wonderful chef for the wonderful menu👍🏼 The daily yoga practices were all wonderful yet challenging! There are also many activities such as kite surfing, trapeze etc on site (which I will definitely try the next time I visit Extreme Hotel). The tour to the organic farm and river tubing exceeded my expectations. I’ve had soo much fun on my birthday visiting Taino’s Farm and River Yasica. If you like adventure and great sceneries; You should definitely try this one out. I had such a wonderful experience that I did not want to leave 😩 thanks Robin, Vikki and Gabby for a wonderful retreat!💕🙏🏼

"Beachside Yoga. Can’t Go Wrong"
Classes and instructors were all fantastic. Can’t beat the facilities. My package was perfect - it included meals, two yoga classes per day, an excursion and the schedule itself allowed plenty of time to explore Cabarete on your own.

"Amazing and Healing! "
This place was amazing. The yoga loft was perfect, the food was delicious, and you can’t beat the location. We did a different tour of the country each day and most of the time made it back in time for evening yoga class. Definitely coming back ASAP!

I loved all parts of this experience. The yoga, the food, the farm, the tubing, the smoothies, the pool, the badass chicks who worked there (Also the dudes) and watching the kiteboarders. I didn't get a chance to check out the circus classes, wish I had more fun tickets to use that trip, it's a must for my next visit.
I also liked that the entrance to the rooms were gated and how friendly everyone was. I need to work on my Spanish skills, but this place is amazing. I'll be back to the DR soon.
