Wifi hotspots

Are there any free WiFi hotspots in Bayahibe village?

Just for the occasional photo upload, as not happy about paying DLR's rate for poor coverage!

There are few spots in Bayahibe village, Saona Cafe, just by the main parking lot. There is another restaurant just beside Saona Cafe called Chicky Blu, and there might be few more further down the shore.

They each have passwords, so buying a drink will get you an access.

Thanks Denise. I thought I'd seen somewhere that Saona Cafe did (probably a Dreams review)

I think we'll be getting more than just 1 drink if you know what I mean ;)

Saona Cafe is on our list of places to eat too.

The Webcam is great. I can see the weather and what's going on in the bay while I slave away up here in Maine at work. ;-)

Mike the camera is on the sea side of Soana cafe, just beside their window (under the roof). If some people are sitting in the front, you can see them sometimes.

In reply to my own initial post, the wifi coverage was actually quite good. My post was based on previous forum posts about the wifi being poor.

In reality it wasn't. Always got a good signal around the pools & in the room (2312) and a fair signal on the beach.
