My disappointment started on the warf when they picked us up on a tiny boat than that was featured online. It was nerve wracking to board the boat and I did not want to cross the ocean in this tiny vessel since there were a lot of big waves. We were soaking-wet when we arrived 30 min. later at the resort. It is not worth the cost. At the resort, I was given a different room then what I reserved which was not a big deal but the toilet seat in that room was old and rusty. It looked dirty because it was so old. They changed the toilet but did not change the seat; the seat was too small for the new toilet. I asked to be moved to my reserved room which took them 55 minutes to do although there were only 3 couples at the resort. The second room was nice and comfortable.I asked for a wash-cloth on two different occasions that I never received. You can’t relax at the beautiful beach on the broken beach chair with missing cushions without being bitten by mosquitos. The resort is infested with mosquitos. They use a commercial fan in the dining area to keep the mosquitos away instead of treating for infestation. When I asked at dinner to treat my room for mosquitos, I was told I had to wait until tomorrow morning. That was another sleepless night for me. Abaka Bay is in need of repair. The featured pictures are not current representation of Abaka Bay. Having said that, I missed the the polite wait staff who did their best everyday to keep our stomach full.

Hidden Gems!
A beautiful, quiet, clean resort not too far from the capital. The beautiful water, the sun, the moon, a very kind and attentive staff. They took care of our needs quickly without any hesitations. I will be back very soon. Thank you Ketura!

Breathtaking Beach...
Abaka Bay is truly one of the most gorgeous beaches I’ve seen. The cottages are lovely and the one minor problem we had (a toilet that stopped flushing at one point) was very quickly resolved. My only complaints were about the food, which was bland to the point of being almost unbeatable- which is shocking given the delicious Haitian food I’ve had over the years! I suspect they may be attempting to tone down Haitian spice for foreign tongues, but AB would do much better to allow for authentic cuisine. Given the soul filling loveliness of the resort I rate this as a minor complaint.
