I've been to Punta Cana a few times and expected the same tourquise blue water. I was disappointed by all the seaweed and the fact that the water was not crystal clear

The beach is clean and long for walking. There are no water sports but we did see some kite boarding.

I have been coming to Juan Dolio since 1968, the area has been a hotel destination, a residential second home community, a golf destination, a beach destination and back to a hotel destination. Very close to Santo Domingo and La Romana, has made it a weekend place for Santo Domingo residents and San Pedro de Macoris as well.

Nothing special. Town has nothing to do in it. About 10 min from hotel i stayed at. Tables and umbrellas. Lots of vendors on the beach selling over prices item you could buy at the gift shop for less than half what the vendors would charge

While I agree with everything said about the look, the ambiance, the availability of chairs, shade etc, there is no one monitoring the vacationers in the water. My friend and I almost drowned.
