    dongweoceanview tripadvisor stars 5  Dongwe Ocean View was wonderful. This side of the island is still very unaffected by mass market tourism and we had the most relaxing time away from the hustle and bustle of city living.
    The staff were warm and friendly, we had delicious, healthy food and the facilities were well kept and well run. You're literally right on the beach and have breathtaking views wherever you go
    It was incredible value for money and we look forward to returning

    And yes, when you have time to visit The Rock restaurant (4km), it is something not to be missed...

    dongweoceanview tripadvisor stars 5  We took an all inclusive package, the food was really great, it is clean and the staff were really friendly. I'd definitely stay there again and they tried their best to accommodate us even with the music.

    dongweoceanview tripadvisor stars 4  As we went on a VERY affordable special I was nervous that the hotel would not live up to expectations... well it did! The location of the hotel is great, the staff extremely helpful and friendly. The food was of good quality and I must make a special mention of the soups and all the baked goods. We were highly impressed and would recommend this hotel to just about anyone..

    dongweoceanview tripadvisor stars 5  I found Dongwe Ocean View mostly by chance, but was so glad I that did. I came to eat at The Rock (also highly recommended), so I made a reservation at the affiliated hotel for one night. When I checked in, the friendly desk clerk...More
