It's not a resort, but it's all you need. The room was very clean. It's a beautiful little hotel. The receptionist Ladies were so kind and helpful. I tried to tip them and they wouldn't accept it. They just kept saying we are just glad you are here. We felt very appreciated and welcome. Our Spanish isn't very good but... More

We enjoyed every moment here! The room was huge, clean and beautiful with a lovely balcony and plants growing everywhere. We spent a good part of the day when the sun was at its hottest on our balcony and it was so peaceful and cool. The whole place is gated and you need a key to enter/exit which is a... More

This place was great, close to the action and all the dive shops. We had a top floor apartment with kitchen. It was spacious with high-ceilings and a powerful fan; no AC but at night with all the windows open it was pleasant. There are roosters all around crowing throughout the night but they didn't bother me. The staff will... More

If you are not looking for all inclusive type services then very good place to stay, 5 min from the port. You can pick btw apartment (60-70 usd) or just big airy room (45 usd). Very clean, nice service, closed garden for parking. Strong wifi. Apartments have nice terraces. You can cook your meals (buy fresh fish from the fishermen)... More

I’m very satisfied with my stay in this well-positioned and cozy hotel. The room I was given was very simple but it did no lack anything. Most importantly, it was super clean and it had abundant hot water plus the manager was very genuinely friendly. I could not expect more, particularly in this price range.

We started out in Juan Dolio and hated it! After searching the internet we called Villa Baya and were lucky enough to get a room. The front desk clerk was very patient with me when trying to make the reservation. The owner Mariano was very nice and even came to Juan Dolio to rescue us. The first night was a... More

We stayed in a 1 bed apartment on the middle floor of the Saona building. It was really nice, spacious and clean. There was just the two of us staying, but there was a sofabed in the sitting room so I figure you could comfortably fit three or four people in the apartment. We didn't end up using the kitchen...

Huge room, can sleep 3 as there are two beds; one a twin, the other a queen. It had a kitchenette with table and a nice size bathroom. The room had good... More

I have been here for 1 week and I couldn't have made a better decision. We booked a 1 bedroom apartment for a family of 3. We have one small daughter and we have all enjoyed our stay. There is free parking inside. It's a small gated community of apartments and rooms with a front balcony. The rooms are very... More
