We enjoyed our stay at this place because the price was quite good and it was quite accesible to both the beach and restaurants (I could not walk very much due to an injury.) However the hotel was not what we normally go for in terms of privacy and peace- our poolside room made it nearly impossible to have our... More

Ok, I've stayed in many budget hotels but this one is barely a step up from a hostel. The first room had mold growing on the table and in the fridge. The room phone didn't work. I'm a dog lover but stepping around dog crap was too disgusting. It's clear that every stray in the area was there. The lagoon... More

I was lucky to visit this hotel recently and experienced a nice and friendly service, however the room i had required some maintenance and upgrade but was within comfortable standard. I enjoyed my stay here but I was bothered with mosquitos during our stay due to rain and moisture conditions. However the walk to the beach is only 100 meters... More

I would not book at the Kaoba again. The room they booked me in was WAY, WAY back, beside some filthy slough. The room was filthy. A lady came in to spray some flies and urine smell out of it. The towels were still dirty and wet and the toilet did not work. With a little coaxing, I did get... More

We used a recognized booking site to book this Hotel. Two rooms. Arriving to the Hotel they could not find the booking and the personel was not showing any intention... More

Kaoba is perfectly convenient place to stay in Cabarete; I have stayed there about 4 or 5 times. . It is very affordable with very accommodating and pleasant staff. Its location is prime; far enough away from the noise, but about a 100 meter walk to the beach with all of the restaurants. The villas are all kept nice and... More

This was such a horrible experience I don't even know where to start. First we are greeted by a bunch of motorist outside asking us for money the minute we get out of the car. When we walked into the lobby there were at least 3 street dogs laying on the floor, very disturbing since these dogs did not look... More

Hotel Kaoba is exactly what they advertise it as. A very affordable, comfortable stay, right in the heart of Cabarete. It is NOT luxurious, it is NOT beachfront, and it is NOT perfect. What it is is very clean, very hospitable, and VERY inexpensive. The staff was very helpful in spite of my poor Spanish skills. The rooms were comfortable... More

Not a 5 star hotel but good value for the money. Location is close to many excellent restaurants and beach. Staff is friendly and pool is well maintained. The rooms in the building at the rear of the complex are away from any street noise.
