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.
