This is a review for the restaurant only as we didn't stay here. We were staying at a well known resort about a 15 minute tricycle drive away and decided to visit San Juan beach, take a walk and draw some comparisons. We stumbled upon JJ's and were immediately captivated by the quaint bamboo resto with tables and seats right... More

As far as food on Solangon Beach this is some of the best, tiny little beach side cafe serving fresh food. I had fish curry and my husband had the chicken burger with mango salsa...both we're very good...the best thing about JJ's is they actually rake their beach and the sand is lovely in front...compared to how completely gross most...

Our tastebuds enjoyed the burger, the chicken schnitzel, the fries, and the shakes we ordered while playing... More
