The location itself is really nice; next to the main road, close to the beautiful Cabarete beaches and many nice restaurants around. Even the hotel itself looks really cute with all the little bungalows and the pool area. The rest unfortunately is average. The staff is ok, the wifi tends to disappear the closer you get to the rooms, there...

The room with the fan is way too hot, the fan doesn't work and it was full of mosquitoes. Besides that, the pool is dirty, and my key was deactivated a day before. Definitely not a really good experience.

I stayed for one night with my boyfriend, we checked in super late (12am), but there's always someone to help you! We were surprised with how cute the installations were compared to the price, is a very nice environment, full of nature and very calm.. Definitely coming back! Great option for a low budget trip

The staff at the reception lied, she said we could not have what we reserved, then gave us a room there was a leak in the bathroom ceiling. She finally gave us what we reserved but it smelled really bad and it was dirty. The water in the pool is green and dirty. It is impossible to see the bottom.

Clean room, and quiet pool. Best part is that you are just 2 minutes walk from getting on the beach and all the restaurants and bars there. We stayed in the queen studio w/kitchenette. Lots of room. Really appreciated a quiet room and good location.

I stayed here for 3 nights in January. Nothing flash to look at but clean tidy and quiet, and right across the road from the beach. Why pay $200 per night when you can pay $50 per night and be literally across the road from the expensive places. It is 100m to the cafes and shops and beach entrance. It...

Totally affordable cute little cabanas set on a nice property with beautiful mature gardens and big trees, which make you feel like you've stepped into a little jungle oasis once you come through the main entrance. Nice inviting pool which you can always find a moment to enjoy on your own - never overcrowded. Great airflow in the cabanas. Short...
