Beach was beautiful, 2 minutes to the white sand and the ahhhh, the mind goes blank, no TV, no news, no rushing it's what we work for. As others mention this is not going to be anything like a city or regular overcrowded resort. The hotel is smaller, has siimple rooms with sketchy wifi. No dressing up, no big fancy... More

This resort was below our expectations. Upon arriving we found the place very old..the reception was not too friendly & Professional. It was an all inclusive resort..but the food was terrible. We found worms on the lettuce because it was not washed properly. We were having dinner one night and a huge cockroach passed by us on the railing near... More

Where to start! The staff were terrible! We were given the wrong room. Onky had one bed for the two of us, I love my friend but my own bed is preferred. We're told they give you rooms as they become available so that's what we get. When we finally got a new room the floors were so greasy. I... More

Having grown up in front of the beach in Cali, nothing bats waking up every morning to the view and sounds of the ocean. Whala has a large bubble-shaped pool, and direct access to the beach, with a large tiki hut that sells drinks and can also place delicious food orders. Picture drink, burger, book, and beach, this was paradise... More

Stayed here in may this year, hotel is clean basic,the food was good always a good selection, the hotel doesn't have entertainment on as such apart from one terrible singer, but there are dance lessons at night at the beach bar. Its a quiet hotel with 3 pools close to the beach with great staff.

Of all the resorts we've stayed in over the past 2 years in Dominican Republic the desserts here were the very best. There was several delicious meals throughput the week. My favourite was the calamari. The pools were beautiful and usually empty. They likely could have had more chlorine in them. .. The room was Ok. The bed was comfy.... More

This was our delayed honeymoon so I was planning something out of the ordinary. Our first time to the Caribbean and staying all inclusive, so we didn't really know what to expect. The beach was right outside and was like on a film, white sand, palm trees and blue sea. The hotel did have a pool, with sun loungers, we... More
