The hotel had many dogs outside and it il impossible to sleep, The dogs are always crying. The noise is impossible and terrible , during the nigjht and during the day ... Dont go to this place ! Michael

Good location in Cabarete, I would take a bungalow and not by the laguna! There you will be spared from mosquitos. The best is the staff and specially the receptionist Marimar and breakfast service from Vicky! Be aware that they have dogs if you are allergic, thus they give them a lot of love! I will stay there again, for sure👍

The rooms were not very nice. Rooms had bugs all over the beds and the sheets were not very clean. There were no screens on the windows so you couldn't open them to help with the breeze. There were dogs every and would bark at you. Not a very welcoming place.

Cabarete is the perfect vacation spot with great beaches restaurants and nightlife and this hotel right in town but far enough away from the bars to be peaceful it was perfect for my accommodation needs. I have stayed here several times over the years and i have always been happy and treated well by the owner and staff .

We had arrived a group of 12 people. I have stayed in the past at Hotel Kaoba and it was clean and worth the money that you paid. This time around there were dogs everywhere. One of the members of our group was bitten by one of the dogs. The sheets and towels were dirty. The pools was dirty and not inviting at all.

The location itself is really nice; next to the main road, close to the beautiful Cabarete beaches and many nice restaurants around. Even the hotel itself looks really cute with all the little bungalows and the pool area. The rest unfortunately is average. The staff is ok, the wifi tends to disappear the closer you get to the rooms, there is a lot of insects and mosquitos. Nice for one night, for a longer stay better choose a beach resort.

Staff is friendly, grounds are maintained, close to everything but,,,,, we stayed in bungelo next to pool for three nights. First night I was getting water boarded by the a/c unit dripping above my head ( fixed Dominican style, moved bed). Next water dripping in shower all night ( again fixed Dominican style, closed door). In the morning no hot water or pressure ( Dominican fix, jump in pool). Besides that had a good time. I would return owners are trying and remember you are in the DR.

The room with the fan is way too hot, the fan doesn't work and it was full of mosquitoes. Besides that, the pool is dirty, and my key was deactivated a day before. Definitely not a really good experience.

I stayed for one night with my boyfriend, we checked in super late (12am), but there's always someone to help you! We were surprised with how cute the installations were compared to the price, is a very nice environment, full of nature and very calm.. Definitely coming back! Great option for a low budget trip

The staff at the reception lied, she said we could not have what we reserved, then gave us a room there was a leak in the bathroom ceiling. She finally gave us what we reserved but it smelled really bad and it was dirty. The water in the pool is green and dirty. It is impossible to see the bottom.
