6/10 Good

They initially told me that my reservation was cancelled because I didn't check in on the check in date and I no longer had reservation. My flight was delayed and missed my connecting flight. I arrived the next day. I pre-paid the room for 2 nights. Just glad it worked out after another worker came and granted my reservation. But whew!

It is advertised that they serve breakfast and they never served breakfast at all. Figuring out the TV was also a huge issue. The hotel is clean and safe. Its about a 7 minute walk to the beach area. The front desk it great with helping you out with tours.

10/10 Exceptional

I traveled to Bayahibe for scuba diving, and hotel el Pulpo was 10 minutes away from the beach by walking. There is a shortcut to scuba caribe where I did my dive and excursion. I had an awesome stay, all the staff was super nice and I didn't have any problems. Especially the front desk lady was very kind serving fresh coffee every morning. There is a local Dominican food restaurant around the corner open for lunch. It's pretty cheap, but it's for locals, so eat at your own risk. There is an Italian restaurant also around the corner across from hotel paraiso with good prices and the quality food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I usually ate there. Don't go to the beach restaurants, they will charge you tourist prices for average food. I also ate at the mexican restaurant Frida in dominicus which was 10 minutes drive. It was really good. There was a construction next door, but they started at 8 am , so I was up before then. At night, there was no bar noise or heavy traffic noise. I would recommend this hotel for people visiting Bayahibe, Dominican people are awesome, be nice to them and don't forget to tip, and they will make sure you will have a good stay .
