This hotel was a last minute decision after missing our flight home. We chose it because it was pretty close to the airport and inexpensive for our unexpected extra day in Punta Cana. We were sorry we did. We got a very basic room in...More
This is a great resort for families, friends and singles, who just want to relax and enjoy the weather and sun. Our stay was very memorable predominately because all of the staff, cooks and bartenders. We did not encounter any problems or issues. In fact,...More
The staff are really friendly, and as any traveler knows, employees can make or break a vacation, and happy to report back that they absolutely "made" ours! We got the all inclusive package, it made sense to us because we were not planning on leaving...More
Of all the reasonably priced hotels in Bavaro Beach, to my experience this has been the best, and we've already been to DR twice before, we plan on returning and we'll come back here. The room was super clean and gave us no issues at...More

We stayed 2 weeks in December and last week again for 1 week. We like the Whala. You need to get a room in the new section. These have 2 digit room numbers like 11 or 22 for example. The older regular rooms I would not stay in and can be a bit noisy after dinner. It is a solid 3 star and they are working hard at upgrading and improving. Location is fantastic with restaurants. the hotel has a decent buffet and a decent snake bar down by the beach. It is smaller and we enjoy it very much. If we go back to Punta Cana we will again stay at the Whala for sure.
