This is a great small hotel, in a secret town. Bayahibe is a nice small town near La Romana. The hotel is great, very clean, nice WiFi and with good restuarants. This hotel is great to go, since it is about 1 hour from the Las Americas Airport.

A really family-friendly resort and intimate enough to have a great time and enjoy various activities. 5 themed restaurants with really good food and probably the friendliest staff you will ever meet (Agustina, Mauricio, Julio at the bar).
