    Lots of children because of the water park. If you like screaming children its great. If not look for an adult only section. I'm not sure if they have one but it would be prudent to check. Have a great getaway whatever you decide.

    My son stayed there this year for a week. They rented a condo because they like cooking their own food. There is a resort section and a rental section. He loved it. They found a really quite part of the beach. You know where the Casino is located well just a little further past all the other resorts on the right. There was wifi at the condo.

    So it's in Dominicus not Bayahibe

    Yes, I just looked at the map and I see it's Dominicus, didn't realize that. I glad, as I prefer it there. Glad your son liked it.

    We just left Cadaques after living there for a year. The most important thing to know is that there was a change in the operator about four months ago. In November, more or less. That changed many things. The new operator has branded it WEARE hotels. Maybe you can find something about them on the internet.

    But, what changed is that Cadaques used to be a kind of upscale, tranquil place. Not any more. The current operator lowed prices, now offers AI-type programs - dance lessons, buffet, and loud music at the beach, etc. And focuses on maximizing occupancy. Nothing wrong with this model from a business perspective, but very unpleasant for people that like a more calm and sophisticated experience.

    The beach has rocks. Quite interesting though, they now pump sand up onto the beach every day from the sea. With marginal success. It washes away every night, exposing the rocks. But, if you stay up on the property with the chairs and palapas, this is not such a big deal. The pier that you see in the photos is there. It was destroyed in the hurricane last August but they rebuilt it. It is a big draw. Great place to watch sunsets.

    And, yes of course it is where Anna C says. End of the road, last resort past Iberostar, Canoa, etc. Is located next to the national park. They fumigate daily with huge clouds of pesticide, which they told me is not harmful to humans as little children are playing in it. Lol.

    One thing that is intolerable for us, since we have a choice, is the damn sand flies. Locally called je-jenes. Terrible big multiple bites that get bigger overnight. Take your bug spray. Mostly during dry season, they live in the sand. Not so bad in December and January. Terrible in August.

    The screaming kids at water park are not such a big deal - the swimming pool is huge and you can get far away from it if you want.

    The last four people I talked to before we left told me they chose it for the price. So, the new business model is a success in this respect.

    AE, you can PM me if you have specific questions.

    It was a few years ago and my wife and I don't recall what area we stayed in as we visit a few hotels every year and after a while they sort of blend. The children I do remember as I am not the biggest fan and lean towards adult only now.

    We actually stayed in his gorgeous condo. Easy walk to beach, we loved it there. Easy to imagine living there.
