    Ignore the scaremongers, this hotel was very clean, very efficient, great value for money”

    Superior room was excellent, but beware if you’re in blocks 3 and 4 as you’ll be deafened by the evening entertainment which thoughtfully goes off at 11pm. Food was very varied throughout the day. Nice beach and the rooftop pool was excellent. Overall very good value for money and if you pre book a transfer from the airport through numerous online companies you can get it for $12

    Great Location”

    I love the deal that came w/full breakfast. The location was great. Access to the beach from the hotel. The room needs better fix up but quite roomy. Staff is ok. But when I request to help to bring my luggage down that takes 5 calls and they claim is too busy to send the Bell service. So I end up bring it down by stairs myself. Other than that the service is so so.

    Pool area, drinks, room

    We had the first night in whala!bavaro Hotel when arrived Punta Cana. Relatively quick drive from airport to hotel. Pools and room were nice, short distance to beach where was bar, dance etc. Breakfast was better than dinner. Sunny days in December made stay in hotel pleasant with nice view from balcony. Hotel had small slice of beach.

    Key Shaped Salt Water Pool, within walking distance to restaurants and sports bars, layout was nice

    First night- no blanket on bed, air conditioner only ran super cold and could not adjust temp setting. Breakfast okay but lower end buffet. It took a LONG time to check in or out. Only one computer available for use with limited speed.

    small affordable hotel close to the beach”

    walking distance to shops and beach

    this place was close to the beach, a short walk down the street. close by were laundry, conveniance stores and atms. the hotel itself is not flash, pretty standard. it has 3 pools for some reason but i guess during peak season it fills up. the staff were friendly and helpful. the all inclusive is alright, not the best food but you can get satisfied with most of the food. the rooms could do with some better lighting but the bed is large and confy. one thing i found terrible was the water, i don't know wheher its everywhere in punta cana, but the water stinks like salt water.
