Luxury (but affordable)-cosy

The word ‘boutique’ might scare you if you’re on a budget, but that’s absolutely not necessary.

The apartments are perfect for those who like to do their own thing! You can make your own meals in the shared kitchen, which is a great way of meeting other holiday-goers. You can enjoy your breakfast, lunch or dinner on your own balcony with views over the garden (with pool!) and sea.

The location of Soriano is great: it’s right in Bavaro and attractions such as the Dolphin Island park and sweetwater lagunes are close by. Check out their availability here.

Just by looking at the white and bamboo apartments with the backdrop of the clear blue sea makes you feel you’re in a tropical paradise! Talking about cozy, the Caribbean style.
