This resort was in what seem like a scanty part of town. Back up in the cut. The water which was salty cut off one day while I was showering.. there are no face towels to actually bath with and no blanket on the bed so I used my beach towel as a blanket. Just a sheet and they only offer clean towels on M W F. The pipes in the sink and shower smell terribly. The beach access is down the street and not very suitable for solo female travelers. If you don’t speak Spanish be prepared to for everyone to seem rude. The food was nasty and I found hair in my food on two occasions as seen in picture below. The a la carte dining was better but walking around the buildings at night to locate the restaurant was unnerving. You’ll be immediately bombarded by the men that post up selling trinkets but I can understand and deal with that with tourism being the primary source of income. . The best thing about this property was the pools and specifically the rooftop pool on one of the buildings. I would not stay here again and as a travel consultant I would not recommend this location to anyone. Errik at the desk was nice and the young lady at guest services who made the dining reservation was nice. Old property. Noisy from the pool and the outside entertainment and no view. Glad I booked tours that took me offsite every day for a while. Definitely don't have plans to return to the DR again.

This property can be so amazing, but they chose not to be. The staff is not friendly, the rooms need updating specially the beds they are hard. I paid for an upgraded room, and the view was ok. I should have been amazing. If you are going to visit this hotel, be prepared to be disappointed. There is no music by the pool unless you request it, the snack bar has not many snacks and the nightly entertainment is non- existent.

We had a really nice stay. The room was clean and located in a nice place. The pools were nice and we had many options to choose from. The views were really nice, we loved it! Piña was really nice and we enjoyed talking to her and joined to play games ( beach volley) with her and it was really fun!

I've visited this resort and this country 2x times already and all I can say is that the experiences I had, they were more than incredible. There is nothing wrong with the place, food, rooms, everything is just perfect and recommendable. I would definitely stay at Whala Bayahibe again for any future stays. The members of stuff are just very professional and friendly, everyone is always smiling and engaging with you as if they were your friends. Shout out to the hostess of the restaurant, Greylin, whom by the way has an excellent customer service and is a lovely person. If you have not yet been to this resort, please do not think twice to stay there if you are planning to go to the Dominican Republic. This would be your perfect place.
