I was lucky to visit this hotel recently and experienced a nice and friendly service, however the room i had required some maintenance and upgrade but was within comfortable standard. I enjoyed my stay here but I was bothered with mosquitos during our stay due to rain and moisture conditions. However the walk to the beach is only 100 meters...

I would not book at the Kaoba again. The room they booked me in was WAY, WAY back, beside some filthy slough. The room was filthy. A lady came in to spray some flies and urine smell out of it. The towels were still dirty and wet and the toilet did not work. With a little coaxing, I did get...

Its location is great! The Room is in strong need of maintenanace! In both our bungalows a smell of mold occurs. Not in the studio Queen Room we later Got. We used a recognized booking site to book this Hotel. Two rooms. Arriving to the Hotel they could not find the booking and the personel was not showing any intention...

Kaoba is perfectly convenient place to stay in Cabarete; I have stayed there about 4 or 5 times. . It is very affordable with very accommodating and pleasant staff. Its location is prime; far enough away from the noise, but about a 100 meter walk to the beach with all of the restaurants. The villas are all kept nice and...

This was such a horrible experience I don't even know where to start. First we are greeted by a bunch of motorist outside asking us for money the minute we get out of the car. When we walked into the lobby there were at least 3 street dogs laying on the floor, very disturbing since these dogs did not look...

Hotel Kaoba is exactly what they advertise it as. A very affordable, comfortable stay, right in the heart of Cabarete. It is NOT luxurious, it is NOT beachfront, and it is NOT perfect. What it is is very clean, very hospitable, and VERY inexpensive. The staff was very helpful in spite of my poor Spanish skills. The rooms were comfortable...

Not a 5 star hotel but good value for the money. Location is close to many excellent restaurants and beach. Staff is friendly and pool is well maintained. The rooms in the building at the rear of the complex are away from any street noise.

I tried leaving a review prior to this one, and was asked to modify it. I will go forth with my honest review of this hotel: 1. Staff needs more training, and professionalism. Owner/manager was a bit condescending and rude. I like the woman that works in the restaurant in the morning she was very nice. Also Jolenny at front...

Stay in the apartments in the main building, not in the bungalows behind the pool. They are much nicer and quieter. Great location just steps from the beach, stores and restaurants. Cleaning lady was rude but that's probably because she was working on new years day. Overall worth the prime location.

So, this place was pretty cheap, only a 2 minute walk from the beach. The rooms were okay, nothing to brag home about, and my particular room had an adjoining balcony. The sliding glass door for this room had no lock so I had to pray no one would enter my room and steal my things. There's tons of young...
