Alex and Kirsten are super friendly and helpful. Both are dive instructors and full of local knowledge. The rooftop pool is a great place to desalinate after a dive. Rooms are adequately priced, clean, quiet, and a couple minutes walk from the beach. Mike Zinsley

Cannot understand high reviews of this place based on our experience. Previous raters must either 1) be related to the owners 2) paid by the owners or 3) have travel lodging experiences limited to Eastern European youth hostels. As to the magnificence of the host. We were greeted with total indifference. The idea that he should help us with the... More

Hi Dave, Thank you for your review. I will not respond to your opinion of our hotel because it is your opinion but I do want to comment on the claims that are simply incorrect. We certainly do not pay guests to write reviews and if they were all family related we would be blessed with a large international family... More

Clean and nice B&B in a perfect location. It's just a two minutes walk from the beach and the restaurants. It's in a quiet area, not disturbed by the music and loud local people that parties every night in the small city center. The breakfast is great, with fresh fruit and homemade marmalade. Alessandro is nice and helpful for everything... More

I stayed here one night to check out Bayahibe and had a great experience. Safe, clean, fairly modern, nice breakfast and a super friendly owner, Alex, made this a great value. I definitely would return. And it's such an easy and quick walk to everything in town.

This is a small hotel off the main road in Bayahibe. The owners are thoroughly charming and accommodating. I stayed in the single room which was adequately large, had a small but useful bathroom and enough closet space. The hotel offers a fresh breakfast with toast, along with their patented jam, and fresh fruit. There is a common room where... More

We are not talking 5 star as in "penthouse luxury type accommodations" but for the value, cleanliness, location, and home made preserves with breakfast- it was definitely worth it. Both owners (brothers) were great and friendly. No air condition, but fans were good and having a refrigerator and microwave in the room was a plus. I did not hear any... More

The rooms were small but clean and the beds were comfortable. Fans kept us cool and we had a great night. The breakfast was exceptional and very much enjoyed. The management was considerate and helpful. We locked out keys in our car and they bent over backwards to help us for 6 hours until the problem was resolved.
