This is my second stay with Andrey and Valentina. First one was in 2013 and I left really really satisfied. Hence it wasn't hard to pick where to stay in Bavaro this time. Locationwise it has gotten much better. It s very convenient as it is steps away from the beach and amenities. As for the hosts, they are easy-going, friendly people with genuinity. They make you feel like you're staying in a cosy family house. I totally recommend GAVA to anyone.

Andrey and Valentina were great hosts! They were very kind and Valentina provided lots of helpful tips for the area. We felt safe and the beach and nearby restaurants were very walkable.

This is not an Hostel. It's expensive for what it is. We loose our keys and had to call Valentina and Andrey with our Canadian phone ($$) because there's no reception office there. They charged us 40$US for 3 normal keys + the deplacement because they had to came from an other city to give us a double of the keys. (They actually live at the Hostel.) We rant the private room with the private bedroom. Clean and quiet. There's a really big wardrobe but there's only 6 hangers. We lived in our bags for 12 days... There's a moment we were 10 people to live in the Hostel. 2 of them were sleeping in the living room connexe at the kitchen. There's only a 3 places couch, 4 kitchen chairs... Too much people for the furniture. There's a dog living with Valentina and Andrey. He is kind and practicly always in them bedroom, but it's not said anywhere... (I'm allergic. The Hostel is clean so I didn't have any reaction.) There's no jacuzzi likes it's say in the add. The add of the people of the other room says it's suppose to have A/C and a pool. There's not. You can easy find the Saona Island advanture for 50$US by people on the beach. Don't take their at 85$US. Valentina and Andrey are helpfull and they gave you a card of the center of Bavaro when you arrived.

Response from Andrey Valentina:
In our description all the words and pictures correspond to reality. It is strange that 6 of the hangers had not been used by you and your Luggage you have stored on the floor. It is strange that the change 3 locks and the work is inserted, as well as copies of your keys, you think 40$ is expensive. Learn to respect the rules of the house in which you arrive. I think you are not objective because we could not be 10 people in the lobby. And if you recommend buying tours on the beach, then your warranty for the service provided should be.

First the great things: The location of this Airbnb is great. Is close to the airport and it was great for us who just wanted to spend the night in Bavaro. The place is clean, Andrey & Valentina are very nice and super helpful. The room was great and we had everything we needed. Other people had mentioned the issue with the shower water pressure, wich is noticeable, however not an issue at all for my girlfriend and I. I personally have an issue with the fact that this Airbnb charges a US$20 fee for late arrival, which is clearly stated upfront. However, we had planed to arrive on time (before 10 PM) to Punta Cana but our flight was delayed. Andrey & Valentina were very nice to wait for us as we arrived at mid night, but if I had known that I was going to have to pay a fee for arriving late this would have not been my Airbnb choice. Anyways, I am giving them 4 stars because of this last issue but everything was fine.

Both myself and my Fiancee stayed at the GAVA hostel for a night after first arriving in Punta Cana. We stayed in the larger room, which was as pictured and clean. There is another smaller room for other guests, but we did not have any time to interact with any. The location is excellent! The beach is very close, and easily accessible by foot or motoconcho (motorcycle taxi). Insure you pay no more than 50 pesos per person for a ride. All the beaches are public, so enjoy the beauty of the beach without the all-inclusive prices. The local watering hole is also across the street (the Car Wash), and any Spanish speakers looking for a local experience should wander over when the music starts playing. Check out the website for instructions for taking the bus to Santa Domingo, as they have very well-written instructions. Andrey & Valentina were very welcoming, and gave us directions to the hostel to insure that we arrived and found the place easily. Guests have access to the fridge, pool in the backyard, and other amenities. Read the fine print of the listing carefully so you understand check-in times, A/C, etc. Note that in addition to the fine print we were required to put an additional $20 key deposit down in cash, which was not covered by AirBNB. Other guests should plan accordingly. There is also a slight language barrier in English, so for those looking a more detailed recommendations of the spanish speaking portions of Punta Cana should check elsewhere. Overall the hostel was clean, and the location was excellent. Those who are independent travelers will love the location and proximity to the world class resorts for an excellent price!
