We come here every year on mission work and this is centrally-located for us to travel to mission sites. Close to several nice restaurants, convenience store upfront. Rooms are kept clean, staff are nice. Parking is sometimes hard to find on weekends as the beaches bring in lots of people. Overall a nice cheap place to stay.

This resort has a descent location for beach and restaurants. The service is terrible. They don't care for American tourists. The rooms were 2 bedrooms with 2 beds in each bedroom and 2 beds in the living room. There was air conditioning only in the main room. The bedrooms got pretty hot. There is a full kitchenette available as well.... More

Avenida Boulevard | Villas del Mar, Juan Dolio, Dominican Republic Plaza Real Resort is perfectly located between the private beach area and the public Beach area in Juan Dolio. The hotel is poor on service. There is no telephone in the rooms, the television has few channels and the air condition has to be turn off at night. The air... More

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!

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
