“Good times ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

Surrounded by massive resorts Cabana Elke is a great alternative for people looking for something simple, quiet and relaxing. My girlfriend and I shared a large apartment on the second level. It was clean, had good AC and two ceiling fans, which really helped on the mosquito situation. The hotel is a ten minute walk from a great beach, but they offer you free bikes that really shortens the distance. Had a great stay! One downside though, the hotel staff only speaks Spanish.

This is a pretty decent B&B...the rooms are very simple and need a renovation but are OK for the price, good cost benefit ratio. Nice swimming pool, 10 minutes walking from the beach ( they offer free bikes if you prefer) and a very good restaurant ( Italian Food, unfortunately working mostly for dinner).
The only opportunity for improvement is the breakfast that is really poor...but you can find grocery stores nearby and can prepare your own if you prefere.
If you are going to Bayahibe to dive this would work perfectly ( that was my case ), but you need a car or coordinate transportation once they are 15 minutes from the beach where the diving company boats leave for the diving spots.

If you are not all-inclusive-huge-resort type of person, this is perfect choice. We've stayed for 9 days - nice spacious apartment, very clean and comfortable. Hotel service very friendly, even though their english could be better. Just next to the hotel is the best restaurant in town, grocery store is 3 minutes walk. Beach is 10 minutes walk. Small recommendation - do not stay at the first beach, rather have a short walk (maybe another 10 minutes) through the beaches that belongs to the all inclusive resort - just after those there is a beach almost completely empty with palms and nice shade (there is a new resort planned but not built yet).

The hotel was better than expected for the price. Small and cute. Nice pool (illuminated at night!), good size bedrooms (I stayed on the bigger one, with the balcony). The restaurant is quite good too, but I thought it was kind of expensive for the area. It is quite close to the public beach at Dominicus, but I suggest using the bikes offered by the hotel - that way you won't be too bothered by the locals trying to sell you stuff.

The only disappointment was the beach, dominicus. It is beautiful, and green and lovely. BUT is crowded with resorts, and we couldn't find one single restaurante nearby. If you wan't to eat while at the beach, better bring your own food. At the beach there are many little stores "tiendas" (annoying people who will try to sell you anything), but no place to buy water, food or even coconuts. :(

Room Tip: Choose the one above, with the balcony.

We have booked studio (larger than usual room, with 2 separate beds which can acomodate 4 people). Facility was clean and spacious. But...there are few negative things (nothing dramatically spoiling our vacation but just anoying;
1) TV- poor reception- almost imposible to watch (TV looks smaler than my I pad).
2) "Kitchen"- there is a sink and fridge, but no stove.
3) No breakfast- I have found other hotel which offers brekfast at the same price level.

It is ok solution for few nights (not expensive, aprox 75$/night, but check other rentas : apartments, etc.. before you decide to stay here longer). You can find app. in Bayahibe for 65 USD/night acomodating 2 people.

Not a bad property, simple rooms, no view other than the pool, a limited option to the all-inclusives, but nothing special. Unfortunately, we were treated very poorly - as if we were an inconvenience since our arrival and even when asking for the internet password and menus. Perhaps they were having a bad day, it was not a language barrier since I am fluent and a well-traveled , low-maintenace "tourist". This, along with the fact that this area (Dominicus) is not the true Bayahibe and is dedicated to the all-inclusive hotels bringing Europe to all the European tourists (who crossed the Atlantic to eat italian), and where finding local food is a miracle, convinced me to leave after just an hour. Ended up in Bayahibe (3km west) where I spent 12 wonderful days enjoying the true DR in Hotel Bayahibe and diving with Scuba Fun.

Very friendly staff with a smile that you get from family. The rooms are very reasonable and the location is good for shopping and walks to the beach.
