I'm really not sure why this place has bad reviews. This place was great, and the price made it even better. I shared a bungalow room with a friend. I think the actual rooms have air conditioning, but our bungalow did not. Room gets hot in the day, so we stayed at the beach or at the bars. I was...

A tad old, but very comfortable. I don't get the "dump" remarks, we found the hotel to be an excellent value. It has seen better days I guess, but the staff is friendly and accomodating and the price is unbeatable. We stayed in one of the rooms near the back of the complex. They have small bungalows available as well,...

The place does not look like the pictures. I do not need a lot to make me happy. Three guys booked a week here and left after three days. Lost our money but at least we didn't have to stay in this hole. Mangy dogs walking around. Pool umbrellas were 20 years old(cant buy new ones?). Holes in the wall...

Was in Cabarete for some R & R and at 30us a night I could not pass this place up. There is a bar in the lobby and the beach is across the street, what else can you ask for.

I stayed at the hotel from Nov 12-17, 2011 . My stay was great. I loved the lay back -casual atmosphere. On previous trips I had stayed at all inclusive, and wanted to try a regular hotel. The rooms were clean daily. Front desk personnel were polite and helpful. The pool was great - it was quiet and clean. The...

The hotel's website looked fine... we needed a place to stay that was reasonable in price. As soon as i walked into the lobby and saw the surly drunk old men and the hookers hanging out at the restaurant's bar, i knew we were in trouble. The pool looked like a swamp and you couldn't pay me to swim in...

We have webcams live for the pool and for the bar since years. You will see that the pool is not a swamp and that the bar is really quiet with old drunk men and hookers as you wrote in your report. I don't know what room that you had but the economic one is the bungalow. The bungalow is...

I have traveled and I also work with a five star resort team in the states. When I go on vacation my search does start with 5 star resorts or hotels. Has to be different, inexpensive, small in size and a great location. Ah! The Kaoba Hotel. Has some character and great staff. Simple, basic and an excellent location. I'm...

We stayed at Hotel Kaoba two different times and I would definately recommend checking out a room or two BEFORE you commit to staying the night! The quality and cleanliness of the rooms varies greatly! You have to pay for your stay upfront, so make sure you really want to stay here before you pay! The front desk staff are...
