Despite hotel fire, it was nice.

Posted Mar 28, 2017
I was only able to stay 1 night do to a destructive fire that happened the day after my arrival. It was a nice hotel, staff was very friendly despite my minimal comprehension and ability to speak the local language. I could be persuaded to return of the hotel was restored and necessary fire suppression upgrade measures where made.

Cabana Elke

Cabana Elke is a wonderful, quiet little place to stay near Playa Dominicus. The owners were very friendly, and it was good value for money.

No frills, comfortable, and pleasing hotel.

Posted Mar 13, 2016
Pros: Rooms are very spacious& clean, & the AC was wonderful (very adjustable too). The hotel is also quiet, unlike at the resorts. Pool/deck area is pretty
Cons: The state of the bathrooms was strange. The tile was old and the grout varying shades of black. Could've been dirt or just painted.
Location: If you're a decent swimmer, bring a snorkel & swim under ropes to the far right or left from the public beach. Bring some bread & fish will swarm you!
For those who do not know the area, this hotel is located directly to the east of the entrance to Viva Wyndham Dominicus Beach. To get to the beach, you have to walk down the street (Av Eladia) and then turn onto the public beach. It's about a 10 minute walk, and the street is generally clean. The people who own the shops along the street are very loud and bother you to buy something each time you walk by. Unless you're planning on actually buying something, ignore them at all costs! They'll drag you into the shops and give you rum to sip and pester you. The public beach is so-so. The water is clean and gorgeous, but the sand is full of sticks and cigarette butts. Vendors can be found along the beach. We weren't sure where to buy food in the little town of Bayahibe, but a few places had bread, jam, drinks, etc. A few restaurants are also present, but be aware that meat, cheese, and things like chocolate are expensive in US standards. The resort beaches are phenomenal however, and you can walk along the shore (DR law prevents resorts from blocking off their beaches). However if you get too far inland you might be kicked out if you don't have one of their orange wristbands (you can buy a day pass at viva wyndham to access the resort). If you came for the beach, sun, and to relax without any frilly delicacies, this is the place to go. Also, cute, tasty, and inexpensive italian restaurant is inside the hotel! Plenty of excursions to book from shops nearby as well.

Low-budget accomodations but beautiful beach

Posted Feb 25, 2016 on Hotels
This hotel is for a bare-budget stay in a fun little DR village. There is a beautiful beach with free public parking not very far from the hotel. There is an on-site Italian restaraunt that is open for dinner only that does get filled up due to it's authentic cuisine.There is also a small cafe on-site with limited menu. Very little English is spoken at the hotel, mostly DR in one of it's many dialects, Italian and Spanish
