“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

The Café del Sol is in a brilliant location on the beach overlooking the fabulous gorgeous turquoise sea that laps onto a lovely golden sandy beach. The food was good. & not too expensive although the menu could've been a little more varied! We found the service and the staff very polite & courteous, & friendly. The views are truly amazing.

“A great place for the family to enjoy the beach and have some rest”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

It is a restaurant on the beach of Juan Dolio. A clean and clear water beach suitable for children. It has a secure parking. Great service. It does not offer good food, and the best options of the menu are those associated with fish. It's a quiet and secure place to enjoy beach with the family, have some rest and have some food. Free Wi-Fi.

“Great place to spend a day at d beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

We were there on march, and we love it. Spacious and guarded parking lot. The ambiance is very good. Food is great as well all the deserts. Beer always iced cold. I personally recommend a bed with a gazebo by the water. Prices are very reasonable. This place is about 45 minutes from the capital. Also free wifi, showers very clean.

“A bad first impression”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

I only can say that i called to make a reservation for one of the beds and the woman who spoke on the phone treated me like nothing. There is just one oportunity for a good first impression, won't ever go there.

“A relaxing escape”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The food is tasty and inexpensive. It's not the most varied menu, but perfect for a relaxing day at the beach. the location can't be beat - close to Santo Domingo yet far enough to let you relax, especially during the week. Lay down on a king sized platform, covered by palm fronds right on the water, have drinks served to you - very relaxing. everything runs slow, but who'd bring a watch to the beach?
