We booked a trip based on TripAdvisor reviews and recommendations...we stayed at Hotel Villa Iguana and enjoyed our stay. Location and layout are great, if you are expecting a 5 star resort then your looking at the wrong hotel AND town..go to Punta Cana for this.

The location of the hotel was great; a couple of minutes down the street and you are in the main area of Bayahibe with many places to eat and drink. A 10 minute walk and you are at the beach! The room was very nice and cleaned every day with enough space to unpack your suitcase and store clothes. The wifi however mostly worked but was extremely slow and the chrome cast setting on the TV stopped working after 1 night. But wifi isn't everything! The rooftop swimming pool was great with fab views. Its a shame the bar wasnt open so you could get a drink. The staff were really nice; with Jay doubling up as receptionist and national park tour guide! They are very helpful at giving tips about the local area and thanks to them I think I got the most out of my short stay in Bayahibe!

Lieze and Jay were fantastic! Very friendly and helpful with navigation and calling our next hotel and excursions fro details. The women that prepare breakfast and clean the rooms did a great job as well! Unfortunately, some of the windows didn't lock which was concerning, but we still felt pretty safe in the area.

Very much liked this cute little hotel would and definitely return when I visit Bayahibe again. Great location.... close to all the restaurants, shops, beaches. Hotel roof pool was small but had fantastic view and great for a quick swim. Room was perfect size for a week stay. And the staff were all very friendly!!

By far the best place I've stayed at during my travels in the country. So good that I came back a second time, also because Bayahibe is a great town with a lot to offer for anyone looking to experience the real Dominican Republic.

The rooms are clean and comfortable and they have AC. The free breakfast is simple but very good, including toast, eggs, coffee, fresh tropical fruits and homemade pineapple and banana marmalade. Its central location makes it super easy to get anywhere fast on foot with the furthest beach being maybe a slow 10 minute stroll away. Local transportation around the corner also makes it very easy to get to Dominicus, La Romana or even Santa Domingo fast and cheap, but otherwise the staff is always ready to book you a taxi.

What really made our stay is the lovely rooftop terrace where they serve breakfast next to the pool. Lovely views over Bayahibe and the staff was always there every morning to answer any questions and to make sure everyone was having a good stay. We also got a 10% discount off our Saona Island tour that the hotel booked for us with Seavis Tours.

Highly recommend this place, will definitely come back!
