    Talking *** Inside a Cabana ***

    For those of you that wonder what people are talking about, or know, but have never seen the inside of one, here are a few photos of one of the better ones.

    Basically they are short time love motels, 3-5 hrs for RD$300-500 (US$13-21). Most are run by the Chinese.

    Photos:

    Entrance sign, sort of like Las Vegas when you have 20-25 Cabanas in one street.




    Round bed so you don't steal the mattress. I have a friend that owns a Cabana and he tells me they have even stolen all the toilet fittings, sink, bath etc.




    Menu so you can order food and drinks. It's usually pretty good and not too expensive.




    Fancy murals and a TV for CNN lovers




    60" TV for myopic CNN lovers




    Round bed close up.




    Jacuzzi and the wooden box on the right is a serving hatch.

    Wow much better than I imagined. I always thought of a cabana as a little dark room with hardly more than a bed.

    Default Great photos!!

    This looks like a very nice cabana judging from the pictures. I have been in 2 different ones on the outskirts of Santo Domingo that were nowhere near this nice. Sure would like to have a list of the better ones with locations just so I will know for future reference and possible use....

    The food was great at these older places but furnishings, etc. can't compare.

    Very informative, Robert.
    In Tokyo they have them. They are called "robu hoteru" (love hotel) and since people live in as close quarters as in the DR, they are very popular. Young people use them for privacy... Businessmen use them for nooners.

    There are a ton of em on San isidro past Charlie but before the zona franca. I live in the same area. It is pretty amazing how many are on this little stretch of road.

    They can be pretty cool when your plane lands at 5:30 and you just need to crash for a few hours.

    There is nothing like watching REALLY bad porn on a 60" TV;-)

    BTW, the Taj Majal is on San Isidro as well. They are all lit up like old cheesey vegas hotels.
