This is one of the best possible places to enjoy a vacation in the Santo Domingo area. Everything you need is here, including restaurants, convenience stores, and the beach entrance across the street. The place is comfortably isolated for the hustle and bustle of the city, though close enough for access of the capital or points east. A short drive... More

I stayed at this hotel with a friend, and I must say I had a serene time. The Apartment style room were a little out dated but that didn't bother us. The beach was literally across a non busy street. The beach was lovely and clean. You don't really have the merchants harassing you like in Boca Chica. It was... More

The hotel is located in Juan Dolio's main street. It is across the street of the beach's entrance and has 3 restaurants, a convenience store and a farmacy on the same block it is located, so there are a lot of fun places to visit. The hotel itself is really nice, a lot of people might be thrown by the... More

I've been to Juan Dolio several times and decided to try a new place for a local getaway with my boyfriend. The set-up was nice enough- working kitchenette, fridge (with a funny smell but working okay), air conditioning, small balcony (broken table). The kitchen lacked some basic utensils like a can-opener and corkscrew (but luckily I had read previous reviews... More

Just got back from staying here. It was a good stay, but some things could be better with a little bit of work. The Roxy Bar by the Pool closes way to early....(about 6pm) Don't know why the manager (Glenn) closes it down at that hour. Maybe he thinks people are going to get drunk and become idiots.....Not! The rooms... More

some reviews i read leave me with the impression they expect too much for their buck. it is old, it is weathered, it is cheap. the rooms were clean, the staff was courteous. it was close to anything in juan dolio that was of any interest. what do you want for 30 bucks a night? rubber biscuit?

We wanted an economical hotel to seve as a base while we explored the beach at Juan Dolio. This hotel served that purpose very well. We had a fridge and eating area in the room which was nice if you wanted to brew your morning coffee. Unfortunately the nasty big mega resort hotels have a lock on the prime beachfront... More

The massive condo across the street has a very loud generator. Read 72 on decibel meeter. This was inside the bedroom of room 47 at approx 1am. How they can put guest in this area so close to this noise maker, which is about the size of a two family house. I'm writing because its impossible for me to sleep... More

Be forewarned: this is not a resort at all. It's a budget hotel/motel with plenty of restaurants and teeny bars within walking distance that all except a crappy little bar in front of the convenience store take credit cards (for an additional fee). My first room (19) was only $20-something a night and was teeming with ants: in the kitchen,... More

Location is in the middle of condos, across the road from the beach. You hoped that you'd get to one of these nice condos with security guards standing at the entrance. Nope, it is not that. . The beach is not the best, very powerful tides. Nothing you can do near by. Probably, the hotel was a good one 25... More
