A Wonderful Stay

Navigate46788994316 on Jan 28, 2023

This hotel was wonderful. The beach was the greatest takeaway. My boyfriend and I visited Bayahibe late November and stayed there in room number 3222 with a king size bed. The room was very cozy and relaxed. The her/him double sink and rain shower were so convenient and stylish. The food and service were great. All the staff greets you with a smile on their face. We enjoyed it so much that we went back for New Year's Eve to their Adults Only Hotel next door . We had a blast! There were so much food and drink. There was a variety of fresh Seafood, best cuts of steak and champagne everywhere. A cheerful and romantic ambience with live music by the pool area and at the beach bar felt like a honeymoon to us. I would highly recommend both hotels, the Family Friendly and Adults Only. Both were over top. We can't wait to go back!

A train wreck

rejsebogsforfatter (Copenhagen, Denmark) on Jan 22, 2023

Some days it was like watching a trainwreck in slowmotion. The staff worked but it was so badly organized that little came of it. Food and foodservice was a disaster – breakfast and lunch was some days un-eatable, and you were lucky to get a warm cup of coffee. Rooms. Nice but too many things were broken. There was an ice-bucket, but no ice-machine. But never mind, you couldnt have a drink in your room anyway, only at the bar. In the refrigerator there was only sodas and water. Not even a beer. Dinner was ok 3 out of 7 nights, however the service was so slow, that I sat through dinner without as much as a glass of water. I lost 4 pounds in a week (not hating that) Gardens. Very nice and well kept. You should have the head gardener take over the whole thing. Pool was nice. However, most days you could not use it because of the terrible noise from the construction site next door. Reception said that guests had been warned, but I had not, and there was no compensation? Beach: Very nice. But hard to get a sunbed as people reserve them with towels from early morning, and the resort did nothing to enforce their policy against it.

Catalonia bayhibe

Dirttrackfan48 (York, Pennsylvania) on Jan 18, 2023

Over all a beautiful resort but there is a huge language barrier between staff and guests other guests were very rude to us and the children were either unsupervised or very unruly most of the food in the buffet restaurants was cold and we were finished our meal alot of times before we got something to drink we are members of ETC and most times were not recognized as so in the restaurants on a higher note the butlers concierge and all the maid staff we awesome if we were ever to go back we would stay on the adult side

Poor experience

NunoMiguelNogueira on Jan 16, 2023

Comparing with Samana and even Punta Cana, Bayahibe have a lot to learn. Lack of food variety, i was sick for 2 days (vomiting and diarrhea), lack sympathy of the employees, employees always asking for tips, a lot of noise due to the reconstrution of part of the hotel.

Stay at Bayahibe

Mandi B (Mississauga, Canada) on Jan 11, 2023

Great staff and beautiful resort! Would go again. Highly recommend this resort. Beautiful beach!! The food was also very good. The only negative was that there was a fire in one of the pavilions, so we were unable to access the whole resort because it was partially closed off for repairs. This also meant we were unable to access one of the main restaurants and reservations were difficult.
