Never again whalabávaro

zalinac on Aug 08, 2022

Rooms were comfortable. Food was awful, I had boiled eggs for breakfast every day. Location was scary and dirty. Beach was nice, considering it was sea grass season. Largest complaint- staff. We had rude interactions in every area. 1 in 10 workers smiled or spoke to us. Request for drinks were met with blank faces, as if annoyed by our presence. Pools close at 7:00, so no drinks at the pool while the sun goes down. Security was everywhere, but usually on their phones. We still felt pretty safe though. As a whole, we were made to feel unwanted. We managed to have a wonderful time, but the hotel did not make it easy.

A real Wow

N7232ESalisonr on Aug 03, 2022

Stayed ten days at Whala Bavaro, so pleased with having the glorious beach right on our doorstep. The sea from our balcony that first morning we opened the curtains was a big Wow, blue sea and sky as far as the eye could see. We are both big on water sports and diving, this is somewhere we’ve wanted to come for a while. Our room was lovely, bright modern colours, clean with good room service, cleaned everyday. Staff are friendly, laidback and chatty and the meals were good, they go to a lot of trouble to make the evening buffets look special. If you want a quick dip the pool is great, there’s also a dip pool on the top terrace but we avoided it midday as it got a bit busy, but later on was a perfect spot for a cool breeze and nightcap. Liked the differences between a holiday in Punta Cana and one in Europe, we would rather come here every couple of years, than yearly somewhere closer and enjoy all it has to offer.
