Having grown up in front of the beach in Cali, nothing bats waking up every morning to the view and sounds of the ocean. Whala has a large bubble-shaped pool, and direct access to the beach, with a large tiki hut that sells drinks and can also place delicious food orders. Picture drink, burger, book, and beach, this was paradise...

Stayed here in may this year, hotel is clean basic,the food was good always a good selection, the hotel doesn't have entertainment on as such apart from one terrible singer, but there are dance lessons at night at the beach bar. Its a quiet hotel with 3 pools close to the beach with great staff.

Of all the resorts we've stayed in over the past 2 years in Dominican Republic the desserts here were the very best. There was several delicious meals throughput the week. My favourite was the calamari. The pools were beautiful and usually empty. They likely could have had more chlorine in them. .. The room was Ok. The bed was comfy....

The beach was right outside and was like on a film, white sand, palm trees and blue sea. The hotel did have a pool, with sun loungers, we...

First of all we were put in a dingy room on the first floor next to the bar and garbage cans. The room was dark and old and the bathroom was scary. It got even more scary when huge cockroaches came in to our room. They would crawl under the the big gap at the bottom of the from door....

Good location and easy check in after a long flight. Rooms are slightly old in the way it was furnished but that did not effect our stay or the enjoyment of our week at all.
