I stayed here for 3 nights in January. Nothing flash to look at but clean tidy and quiet, and right across the road from the beach. Why pay $200 per night when you can pay $50 per night and be literally across the road from the expensive places. It is 100m to the cafes and shops and beach entrance. It... More

Very cool set up and nice location and price. I had a ton of big palmetto bugs in my bathroom --giant cockroaches. The screen in the bath was torn so i fixed it to keep mosquito's out. The ac was only on full and freeze you out or it was off. Hot water is only certain times of the day?... More

Totally affordable cute little cabanas set on a nice property with beautiful mature gardens and big trees, which make you feel like you've stepped into a little jungle oasis once you come through the main entrance. Nice inviting pool which you can always find a moment to enjoy on your own - never overcrowded. Great airflow in the cabanas. Short... More

I couldn't fault the location, it was a short distance to the beach, room was clean and a good size, the wifi was also fine. However, the room looked a bit tired, bathroom was falling to bits and I didn't have any hot water. I wasn't disappointed with my stay but I just was not particularly enamoured.

The shower sprayed over the wall of the shower onto the wall of the bathroom ran across the floor and into the bedroom. The walls and ceiling were cracked from earlier leaks. An employee's 4 dogs in the lobby woke us up barking at midnight, 3:00 am, 3:30 am, and 4:15 am.

I stayed at Hotel Kaoba for 5 nights this May while traveling alone around the Dominican Republic. I had my own bungalow for about $35.00 U.S. a night. It is located right in town very close to the beach and all the restaurants. I did not eat or drink at the restaurant located within the Hotel so I can't comment... More

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
