Avoid Bayahibe Village like the plague unless you want to deal with chasing after crooks who don't honor free cancellation policies and who shamelessly ignore all forms of contact in an attempt to run away with people's money. Thank goodness I hadn't booked directly with them as Booking.com eventually stepped in and managed to force the refund I was entitled to. That whole frustrating process took well over a month to resolve with lots of emails, phone calls and proof checking exchanges. I had canceled because they were seriously unprofessional and unreliable...I had booked a 3 night stay in a TWO bedroom apartment only to receive a message from them 3 days later to say that my apartment wasn't available anymore and they can offer me a ONE bedroom apartment for 15% less. When I refused the offer, they told me that my initial booking was miraculously available again. They also went radio silence when I asked to change arrival and departure dates as my travel plans had changed and only started being reactive once I cancelled the reservation completely (only because they wanted me to book again). As I didn't, they decided to keep my money and throw their "refund in 7 days time" out the window. Speechless! Also be aware that Bayahibe Village's supposed "temporary hold"of your money actually results in them debiting the full amount completely WITH A 4% SURCHARGE as they use a company called Tab to deal with prepayment vouchers. As I like to pay in person with cash, I did not like this at all. Supposedly, you can opt out of this and pay in person and they will refund you the amount once you've paid but judging by how everything went down...very unlikely and you would have lost double your money. You've been warned.

Description in Booking app wasn't very accurate. It shows some features that the hotel doesn't actually have: such as a kitchen, hot tub and balcony IN the room I booked. Kitchen was a must for me, due to some food allergies. Cleanliness is not that great neither. Some hairs in the shower and even the bedsheets. Besides a dirty chair and a funky smell in the room. Other than that, the receptionist Chiara is beyond welcoming and kind.

+ Hotel is very climate - nice style, beatiful design. Rooms are clean, terrace is available (we in room 15 had balcony, rooms below have terrace). Location very good - 3 minutes from port. Breakfast delicious but portion can be bigger (2 toasts, one pieces of ham and chesse, and scramble eggs). Internet available in all areas, swimming pool small but nice, parking on the street available. Service very calm, helpful and professional (speaking in English) - Breakfast can be bigger, safe box unavailable

The best choice ever. If you want to have a real trip in Dominican Republic you should stop in Bayahibe. I spent 4 nights in Altea, and I visited Saona by private boat. Simply incredible.

we stayed for 4 nights at the altea palace. They helped us in organise everything. Starting from the transfert untill every single excursion of our holiday. The hotel is equipped with every comfort and they’re doing a super economic price. the cozy and spacious rooms with air conditioning, fridge, hot water and smart TV make you feel at home. we took advantage of the private aperitif on the terrace on the jacuzzi at sunset, very romantic if you go with your favorite person. The staff is present and attentive to every request. during our stay, the staff of the bayahibe village organized an excursion for us every day. horseback ride in the cave of the padre nuestro, Saona with the private boat, miches and montaña redonda, boca de yuma and ojo azulito, San cristobal and santo domingo and the entire tour of the village of bayahibe and all the local activities. the guys also helped us to organize the rest of the trip with suggestions and contacts. thanks to the family of bayahibe village because they made us feel at home.
