“Perfect choice for cheap hotel”
Reviewed March 8, 2005

I didn't have much to go on when booking my accom at Kaoba, it was my first time to the Dominican so I just wanted something close to the town of Cabarette.

I must say I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. For the price (US50 - Feb 05) I got a twin room with breakfast (but don't expect too much from this breakfast). The rooms were clean, bathrooms a little shabby, the pool was great and it's proximity to the beach and restaurants was perfect.

Hotel has it's own bar and restaurant (never ate there - too many other options only yards away).

Have already recommended the hotel to other friends.

I was at this hotel in September 2003.
The hotel garden's atmosphere is one of peace and rest, except when a breadfruit drops out off the trees sometimes. ;-) But serious, this is a very peaceful and quiet hotel where you forget and won't have the idea that you're in the middle of a very bussy village center.
The hotel doesn't provide any animation. So when you're with kids, you better look for another hotel.
Actually I think it's a perfect place to stay when you want a part of all, a fantastic nightlife at 100 meters from the hotel, a perfect beach at even about 50 meters from the hotel and the quiet surroundings of the garden and the pool.
Checkout my pictures of the hotel and Cabarete at:

The hotel doesn't provide in dinner. Just a breakfast, but better get something in town. The kitchen and cooking are not that great, just the coffee and fresh fruit are perfect. When you had enough of the dinners you can get in town (from Chinese to Italian, fish, lobster and other seafood) ask the girls at the desk or hotelbar to order somthing for you. Ask for typical Dominican food. You can choose between porc, beef, chicken or fish with fried potatoes or french fries and a salad. It's really cheap, be friendly to the girls and offer them to pay for them too and offer them to eat together. (They have to pay themself when they want to have diner and they just get about 100US$ per month). The highest bill I had was about 12.50 euro (US$ 15.33 at Sept 2004) for 5 people. When you do, you made friends for the rest of your vacation. ;-)
