Cons

This hotel was impacted by Hurricane Maria in September 2017. We will update our review as soon as we have more information. Grand Bahia Ocean View Hotel offers most of the amenities of a traditional beach resort, in a scaled-down, two-and-a-half-pearl package. As of mid-2016, the property is in a state of transition and has clearly changed ownership several times. Decor in the 24 rooms is drab, dowdy, and dated, and while there are more modern rooms, the look still fails to hit the stylish mark. The list of amenities is brief, with flat-screen TVs and air-conditioning being the most notable features. The lack of attractions or services in the immediate area may discourage some travelers, and issues range from surprising fees to general issues with upkeep. While slightly pricier, the three-pearl Parador Combate Beach features more modern decor and a kid-friendly vibe.

Dated hotel that needs an overhaul

While the location directly on Cabo Rojo’s beaches is a major draw, this hotel isn’t capitalizing on its prime real estate. In fact, things here are in pretty dire shape. The decor is emblematic of a hotel in transition. The lovely water feature near the pool, private beachfront cabanas with billowing white curtains, and an intimate beach bar all offer at least the sheen of a polished hotel, but that’s only surface deep. Notable areas of chipped paint and a general lack of maintenance in the rooms and common areas reveal the hotel’s age. The ample infinity pool, wide beachfront, and large restaurant and bar are all more than adequate to accommodate the number of rooms, so guests will rarely feel crowded. With a kiddy pool and multiple beds in many rooms, guests will likely find just as many couples as vacationing families.

Location

On a quiet beach road near Cabo Rojo’s southernmost point

The hotel is situated on a beachfront stretch of quiet thoroughfare that connects the Cabo Rojo peninsula to the small town of Las Arenas — an eight-minute drive away. There are no restaurants, shops, or services within walking distance of the hotel — in fact, it’s sandwiched between two nature reserves owned by the National Parks Service. Both areas are excellent for bird and wildlife watching, and iconic  offers a pharmacy, a supermarket, and several local and chain restaurants. The island’s famous Cabo Rojo Lighthouse and Playa Sucia are also eight minutes away by car. The picture-perfect La Playuela beach, in a cliff-flanked cove at the tip of Cabo Rojo, is only 10 minutes away by car. 

The nearest airport, Eugenio Maria De Hostos (MAZ), in Mayaguez is reachable in less than an hour. Additional flights — both local and international — are available through Aguadilla’s Rafael Hernandez Airport (BQN), 90 minutes north. No airport shuttle is available to/from the hotel. Taxi service is ubiquitous and relatively affordable throughout the island, although long-distance fares can prove expensive. Rental car counters are available in both airport terminals with rates comparable to other Caribbean destinations.

Rooms

Dated rooms offer flat-screen TVs and air-conditioning, but little else

Room decor is unpredictable and the hotel requests that guests call ahead of time to manage expectations. Many rooms feature drab, uninspired aesthetics that consist of mismatched dark wood furniture, faded tile flooring, and little to no decorations to remind guests they’re in the Caribbean. Other rooms are a bit brighter and have more modern touches including white furniture, leather headboards, and brushed metal chairs. They still look very much like budget motel rooms, but they are a bit more pleasant.

Rooms are available in one- and two-bed configurations. Floor space in both is comparable to a mid-range chain hotel. Layouts vary slightly from room to room and a few feature small couches or sitting areas. A handful of rooms also offer small private balconies with lovely sea views. The list of amenities is brief: flat-screen TVs, air-conditioning, and coffeemakers are the only noteworthy features. There is no in-room Wi-Fi available, and guests have reported fees for things like electricity and air-conditioning. Many also note that rooms feel overwhelmingly humid.

The hotel’s age is most evident in the bathroom decor and appointments. Cheap faucets, salt-worn fixtures, and missing grout or paint are par for the course here. Standard shower/tub combinations are available in every room.

Rooms

Features

A beachfront restaurant/bar, a wide, semi-private beach, and a lovely infinity pool

Although the hotel houses only two dozen rooms, there are a decent number of amenities here. The large Agua al Cuello restaurant offers three distinct spaces, including a slightly more refined indoor dining area, an open-air area with beautiful sea views, and an adjacent bar. The menu features a wide range of dishes but focuses primarily on steak, lobster, and other local seafood. Vegetarian and children’s menus are also available. Free breakfast and dinner vouchers are provided in most stay packages. Unfortunately, the food is poorly reviewed for both selection and quality.

Like all beaches in Puerto Rico, the beach at Grand Bahia Ocean View Hotel is technically open to the public. However, the hotel’s unique geography — sandwiched between two large expanses of preserved national parkland — ensures that guests typically have the sand all to themselves. A dozen lounge chairs and a handful of cabanas provide ample relaxation space. Water sports are limited to kayaks and snorkel gear, and there are fees for both. As the beach faces an open, unprotected area of the Caribbean Sea, the condition of the water depends largely on the weather and time of year.

The hotel’s main infinity pool is arguably its best feature. A small, lovely waterfall anchors the interior side, while the opposite side is steps from the sea with a panoramic view of the beach. Plenty of lounge chairs are also provided, especially given the hotel’s small capacity. Unfortunately, the lack of umbrellas means the surrounding area is exposed to the sun throughout the day. There’s also a shallower kids’ pool.

Cabo Rojo — GoDominicanRepublic.com

The beautiful white beach of Cabo Rojo got its name from the bauxites that the region is rich in. That is why all local roads have a dark rusty color. Cabo Rojo remains one of the region’s most popular beaches, with tourists flocking here in search of breathtaking coastal views and some of the Caribbean’s best-preserved coral reefs, home to manatees and baby turtles. From here there are daily boat tours to Bahía de las Aguilas.

Bahia de Las Aguilas

This white, sparkling 3 km beach is considered the most beautiful beach in the Dominican Republic and is part of the Jaragua National Park. It is famous for its clear turquoise waters and karst cliffs that stretch along the coastline.

Bahia de las Aguilas

This beach can be reached mainly by boat. The beach, with flour-white sand and crystal clear turquoise water, stretches for 4.5 km and creates an amazing contrast with the lush greenery of the Baoruko mountain range. Both natural attractions are located within the Jaragua National Park.
The beach is protected by the state; the construction of hotels and restaurants is prohibited on its territory.
The dry tropical landscape provides optimal nesting conditions for turtles. The beach preserves flora and fauna that existed even before the arrival of the first Spanish settlers.
Baia de las Águilas is part of the Jaragua Baoruco Enriquillo Biosphere Reserve, included in the UNESCO World Network of Biosphere Reserves in November 2002.

Cabo Rojo

Known for its white sandy beaches, Cabo Rojo was so named because of the deposits of bauxite, which is a red clay rock (“Rojo” in translation from Spanish — red). Being one of the most popular beaches in the region, Cabo Rojo attracts many holidaymakers primarily for its enchanting scenery. The waters of Cabo Rojo contain some of the best preserved coral reefs in the Caribbean, providing a breeding ground for Antillean manatees and hawksbill (a type of sea turtle). Every day boat trips to Bahía de las Aguilas are available from Cabo Rojo.

Oviedo Lagoon

Oviedo Lagoon is the largest lagoon in the Dominican Republic. The water in it is three times saltier than in the sea. It is also a great place for bird watchers. The lagoon is surrounded by impenetrable mangrove swamps and 24 shallows where you can watch king and blue herons, great egrets, roseate spoonbills, snipes and flamingos.

Lake Enriquillo

Lake Enriquillo is the largest and deepest lake in the Caribbean, located below sea level. It is ideal for observing and exploring wildlife. During boat trips on the lake and to the island of Cabritos, you will see a large population of American (sharp-snouted) crocodiles and flamingos.

Hoyo de Pelempito

The road to the Hoyo de Pelempito park itself can already claim the title of an exciting excursion. Rising from the sea to a height of 1300 meters, the participants of the trip observe the change of landscape from desert to forest with dense thickets of pine trees. Having reached the top, you can take a walk along the mountain paths located near the observatory. The observatory offers an impressive view of a natural wonder: a geological formation, which is a depression among high mountains, extending seven hundred meters into the ground. The temperature here during the day can reach 25 degrees Celsius and drop to zero in the morning.

Hoyo de Pelempito

Located at an altitude of 1300 m, the road is in itself an attraction and a unique object of the Caribbean region. At the top, near the observatory, there are several mountain paths overlooking a 700-meter geological gap located among the mountains of the Sierra de Baoruco.
