As a mom traveling with an infant I cannot stress enough how... More

Nice small hotel, staff working hard for keep it clean. Not recommended for family with kids (any age). There are no activities, nothing. Not even music around the pool. Good if you want to relax and read books. To go on the small public beach needs to pass a public street. Not very safe at night. The commercial center in... More

We stayed at the Whala Bavaro hotel for 7 nights, the hotel is set near the beach and we were amazed at how tropical it looked. The hotel staff were very friendly, always smiling and happy, but be prepared for the slightly slower style, nothing is rushed. The rooms are good, aircon is a welcome from the hot sun. Our... More

Staff at the hotel are super nice and helpful. The location of the hotels is also nice because nearby there is a gold course and a shopping area with restaurants and the hotel has free shuttles that take you all around the small town so you feel safe and know where you are going, its a great perk if you...
