A few things to know on top of the reviews how gave 4 -5 points for this beach.
The name of the restaurant there is now Juanillo‘s Grill & Beach Club. There is an older blog from 2017 did still have th wood name and the description, that the place (beach) is freely accessible. Clearly, others did read this report as well, was we were told at the security check point to drive to the tourist information, which is adjacent. Here you need to present picture ID and a credit card and you will need to pay 30 USD cover charge, which will be used for paying the bill at the restaurant. So, make a right turn before driving to the check point and enter the place, otherwise you will not be able to enter the quite large property.

The place is really nice. White sand. A true little paradise. The cocktails are really good and tasty. Not cheap. Unfortunately the restaurant and only fried dishes that day. It may have been because of the day after new year‘s eve, so the waiter said.

It took quite some time to get attention of the staff, but once you placed your order, food and beverages are being served in good time.

Enjoy a great day out there.

This is about the fifth time I visit Juanillo Beach and the Beach Club. I have to say that I had been sorely disappointed about 4 months ago due to the poor quality of the food. Food was taking very long to be served and they were not using food covers, so the food would get to the guests cold. I am glad to say they have made a big improvement in that respect.

They have also increased the amount of servers available, so it makes it easier to order food and drinks instead of having to chase after them. They still have to work a little on customer service skills of some service staff. I particularly have to say I had a very nice encounter with a server names Castro. He went above and beyond my expectations and delivered stellar service. It was a very refreshing experience that stood out among the lackluster service of others.

They have also kept on improving the lounges and beach beds, which makes for a very pleasant time just as it was many years ago.

We stayed at TRS Cap Cana which has no beach...or at least a very sad small beach. The resort had a free shuttle to Juanillo beach so we went. It was excellent! Not sure why the negative reviews of the beach bar and grill. There were at least 3 waiters walking the beach, thank you Franklin! Several beer selections, including Budweiser...woohoo., and many mixed drink options. We ordered a chicken wrap and fries and got in within 10 Minutes. Excellent flavorful full of chicken wrap. Had 5 drinks and food for around $42 US. Lots of chairs to use but locals said it gets very crowded on the weekends. We were there on a Saturday and it wasn't too bad. Great beautiful water and soft sand beach. We would highly recommend if your resort does not have a decent beach.

I used to go quite often to this place and I liked that I could chill and eat and drink in a nice beach. Unfortunately I had a very horrible experience yesterday. We arrived and no one welcomed us and a man started yelling at me to not touch some chairs because “they were reserved for groups consuming more than 140 dollars” I’ve been there several times in the last years and this was never said to me. Without fighting I sat in other chairs and saw how this other place was never taken by no one and how other people sitting in same chairs in other locations were not tell nothing. During the whole time NOONE CAME TO US no one asked if we wanted something to eat to drink, nothing. When I went all the way to the restaurant area this same guy who screamed at us earlier was there and completely ignored me. I needed to call his attention (it was clear I was standing there but he refused to look at me until I call him) and asked for the menus. He gave it in the most horrible manner and I left feeling stupid to my chair. He never came back to us to see if I wanted something from the menu. I left feeling horrible and knowing I will never go back there. Such a pity for such a nice beach.

There is a lot of stinky sargassum seaweed. It caused the water to be quite cloudy also. There are chair rentals on the beach along with a nice little bar. If staying at certain resorts you do not have to pay.

I love this beach !! Not only is it stunning it is not as busy as Barvaro with minimum seaweed which was cleaned daily . It is located in a gated protected very safe location with no vendors which was wonderful. We prefer a quieter spot so this was perfect

Great beach in Punta Cana, we spent the day here as a change from our hotel (which was fantastic). The hotel provided free transportation there and back. Beach was beautiful and wide open, plenty of beds and shade. The beach bar and grill was excellent with great food at reasonable prices.

Beautiful beach with a nice stretch of hotels. Rent kayaks, a sailboat or a StandUp Paddleboard. Or you can just relax on the white sand beach. Checkout Little John on the beach, a favorite among the locals. Area is safe as Cap Cana is private.

We visited DR on a cruise ship. Based on my research, Juanillio Beach is one of several beaches comprising Punta Cana and also one of the few that has public access. You will have to go thru the Cap Cana resort to get there.
We went on a cruise excursion and it was well worth the price! The beach was deep and long with soft white sand. The water was warm! Instead of umbrellas, there was a row of cover sectioned off for 2-4 lounge chairs in each section allowing no sun to get through for the entire afternoon.
Highly recommended.

The best of all day-trips of Punta Cana. From a really beautiful port they'll take you to this exclusive beach of white sand and calm waters. After as many drinks as you like, alcohol and non, and a tasty starter you can choose your favorite plate for lunch (chicken, beef, fish or lobster). We ordered the lobster of which I highly recommend. At last but not least they'll take you to know the HOYO AZUL a nearby cave that will sweep you off your feet. The water is as blue as it can be and perfect for a good dive. 10/10.
Enjoy!
