Hotel Kaoba,value with sacrifice

Would recommend Fri, Mar 28, 2014
Stayed at Hotel Kaoba,for the 2nd time,and nothing has changed,except for more barking dogs.The hotel is conveniently located,on the edge of the main street,in Cabarete,but the owner doesn't seem to want to invest much,in maintenance,and landscaping.The 1st-floor rooms are pretty poor,most don't have a/c(which is really nice to have here),and the bathroom was full of mosquitoes.However,if you move up to the 2nd,or 3rd floor,the rooms seem to upgrade as well.They're not luxuriously appointed,by any means,but they suffice for someone on a budget,and like me,one who doesn't plan on spending too much time there.The one thing about some of the rear rooms,was the incessant barking of the many dogs,in,and around the hotel grounds.They have bungalows near the front of the property,which might be a good option,and maybe a little quieter.

Dining

Plenty of bars and nice restaurants on the beach,but more affordable options on the street,where you can eat-for-cheap.

Ups and downs

Would recommend Mon, Jan 4, 2010
Overall, for an inexpensive place in Cabarete, Dominican Republic, Kaoba was okay. Clean, but in the apartments where I was, a bit run down. I think the bungalows are in better shape. The location is very good, and the service was fine, given what the expectations were. Sometimes a bit noisy, due to a young and often inebriated crowd, but mostly pretty quiet and restful, though it is on the main road and car alarms and engine noises remain audible at the back of the complex.

"The good, the bad, and the really ugly"

Would not recommend Sun, Nov 29, 2009
Not so well. The first impression was nasty. The lady at the front desk was not polite. All the room furniture were so worn, and they try to charge extra money to use the air condition.

Rundown

Would not recommend Tue, Mar 3, 2009
None of the staff spoke ANY English. There was no phone service in the rooms due to the phone cable being cut. The view of the "Lagoon" was of a fence,razor wire and a few palm trees. The pictures posted on the web site must be atleast 5 years old. The room had no clock, coffee pot, or microwave. The ceilling fan had one speed-slow. Internet service was slow. But atleast the beer was cold
