    This was a great resort. But it has been closed for the past year. Was never told that when I booked a month ago. It was very frustrating.

    Should first mention, that I did not actually stay at Whala! Bayahibe, instead they called me to ask if we can be moved to Whala! Bávaro. Did not LOVE this place. Although the room was clean, the beach was beautiful, the pools were very well maintained, and the drinks were good. I did not love this place. First thing was check in, it felt a little all over the place. Second thing is the bathroom water is salt water. Like straight from the beach. We left the bathroom door closed because it smelled like sea water. When you do end up showering, you end up with water filtering to the room. If you still decide to go, ask for water bottles to brush your teeth. Small things I also noticed, I couldn’t get the TV to work. For beach towels, you had to put a deposit. And the rooms doors slam a lot, I was woken up twice to the sound of door slamming. Food was okay and the snack bar really only had pizza, hotdogs and fries. Which also were eh.

    Was transfer to whala bavaro because the one in la romana was closed and this was the worst experience I’ve had on a resort. All water in the facility is salty, bad drinks, not so good food.

    The ratings are not for whalabahibe. That hotel even though you book it it’s close so your stuck going to whala bavaro which is in punta cana and they don’t even let you know it’s close till you get there and have to call. my ratings are for the whalabavaro it’s under construction. Bad service. Bad food. The rooms the only good thing is the bed. The TV turn down every two minutes. Over all a really bad hotel. Would NOT recommend. Also there’s no parking so you have to park out side where ever you find parking in the street. It’s not a good location it is small. I hated my stay there.

    Love the whala! Bayahibe and stayed there many times, however contacted 2 days before booked stay (one that had been booked for months) to inform me the hotel was closed and offering to transfer stay to another hotel. That hotel turned out to be much further away and facilities were not only partly under construction and therefore closed but also overcrowded and all around inferior to the bayahibe location. Only question is why they were selling rooms to a hotel that has not yet reopened after closing its doors for undisclosed reasoning. And why did they wait so long to inform me it was closed.
