Solaya Hotels & Resorts' premier property is Eden Roc at Cap Cana, the first Relais & Chateaux property in the Dominican Republic.Immediately after its first renovation, the new La Palapa by Eden Roc fascinated visitors with its unique proposal of pastas, fresh sauces, homemade bread, fish and seafood. La Palapa by Eden Roc is ideal for those who enjoy the authentic cuisine, where each dish is perfectly executed incorporating fresh seasonal products, without losing the simplicity, in a casual, elegant and relaxed ambiance. La Palapa by Eden Roc is a place to enjoy the best cuisine and the beautiful views of the Caribbean Sea.

The red snapper is grilled to perfection and the lemon sauce is subtle and delicious. Do try the buratta -- the best outside Analfi. What s delicious... More

This was the highlight of our trip. The employees were terrific... friendly, engaging, and truly fun but the food was superb. Best part of the week was spending time with Cheila, Mayra, Minoska, and Franchesca.
