We've been planning an early summer vacation all winter, it's tough to shell out a lot as we have a lot of destination weddings lately, so traveling alone just the two of us for the purpose of leisure has been hard. We paid really next to nothing for this hotel and it checked all our boxes: clean room, safe hotel,...

Came here for some sun and beach and had great time. Smaller hotel with limited amenities in comparison to the larger hotels but liked the service the staff gave as it felt more personal and authentic. Nice rooms but pretty simple in design. Worked well for a week. Location great and whole area was friendly and safe feeling. Hotel and...

My daughter and her friend saved for all year to take their 1st vacation as adults and celebrate their birthdays. They're almost 30 so these aren't youngsters. They just contacted me in tears! The staff has been rude to them, the room is horrible, the food is terrible and they're on a limited schedule on when they can eat. Poor...

Stayed back in May of '16 seems my review keeps getting deleted. The staff during the day was friendly enough and the hotel manager was nice. But during our third day we had an unexpected visitor in our room. No real security no cops and they placed a back in the same room with a broken slider. May be a...

We went to Bavaro Beach because my boyfriends friend was having his wedding there, marrying a girl whose entire family is from the DR and what a beautiful place it is. Not all of the guests were staying at our hotel but we booked last minute and felt like we had limited options, so we were very happy when we...

Hotel was not well maintained or clean. They made us refill water bottles instead of providing fresh ones each day. One restaurant was classified as 2 separate ones...they just changed the menus mid week. Beachfront is a joke..had to walk to a path to get to a very small beach front...mostly we infringed on other hotels beach fronts.

We were looking for a less expensive place to stay so that we could extend our 10 day vacation at Club Med Punta Cana and make it a full 2 weeks of fun in the sun. We were not expecting anything fancy at Whala as we new we would be spoiled at the Club Med. However, much to our delight...
