Kid friendly, adult friendly, everyone was happy on our little vacation to Juan dolio ! Could not recommend more!
Thank you, my dear guests. I am very grateful that you helped me install the streaming TV system :) It was an honor and a joy to have you at home and I hope you visit Marbella again. Preferential prices for you. You are a lovely family.
Great apartment - relaxing stay
We stayed for 2 nights only and I wish we could have stayed longer. The apartment was very comfortable for 4 of us, beautiful beach / pool and fast internet. There are nice restaurants across the street from the complex. Melvin was easy to work with, excellent communication via Whatsapp.
Thanks a lot for this nice review! It was a really pleasure to have you and your family in Marbella. I am very glad you enjoy your stay. Yours,
great condo and very attentive owner
We spent a month and enjoyed it very much. Our owner was very attentive--he arranged for a cab to pick us up and return us to the airport. He checked in to make sure that everything was OK and gave us advice on restaurants, etc. Very enjoyable establishment--safe and clean.
Great space and view!
We stayed 6 weeks in December and January. The view and pictures are exactly as presented.
Melvin was helpful with information as this was our first visit to the Dominican Republic. He also met us on arrival to show us his unit. The tv and Sono sound system were all great! Restaurant at the pools was good as well. The building complex is well maintained on a daily basis as well as the beach area. Washer and dryer in the unit was a real plus for a longer stay. Weather was 80's daytime 70 at night. We would not of needed the air conditioning except that some flies and mosquitos appeared after some of the heavier rains, and there are no screens. I am sure they do not normally need them as we were told the rains were unusual for our time of stay. There were just a couple of minor issues with the condo that Melvin was addressing after we let him know, but they did not bother us enough to mention further here. Marbella is the nicest complex that we saw on our beach walks. Security is heavy but we really didn't see any issues anywhere in Juan Dolio, even walking after dark. The local restaurants of Sal Marina (our favorite) Paladart, El Meson, Giuilia's, Bistro and MBG (US comfort food!) were all good and within walking distance.There are also two small grocery stores within walking distance but if you want a larger selection you will need to rent a cab to San Pedro. $35 for trip and one hour at Jumbo. Car rentals across the street are $50 a day but unless you have good insurance I wouldn't recommend it! The driving is like nothing we are used to seeing. Any vehicle can be going in any direction on any street at any time when you get into the towns! This is a family atmosphere, especially on the weekends when owners arrive to get away from the city. We enjoyed seeing and hearing the kids have fun but if you are looking for an adults only spot this isn't it. If you are coming from the US for the first time this is NOT the US! Spanish is the language spoken here, VERY little English so be prepared to use a translation app to try and get by. That is not their fault it is OURS! The culture in the DR is more laid back. Trash along the streets and stray dogs fighting at night are not a big concern. Sit back, relax, and enjoy their culture!
seem like a beutiful properly
a couple days ago I reached Melvin Pena the property owner to mention I send him a message. He mentioned the days where available and suggested I send him the payment to his personal account. I mentioned I had already process the payment in the Home away from home website. I advised I was waiting on him to approve. Melvin who has been very responsive became unresponsive claiming he was out of town. He then reached back and mentioned the apartment was already taken by someone else as he had difficulties retrieving the payment from Home Away From Home. Please be mindful prior to booking properties at this website as some home owners like Melvin may seem to have issue retrieving payments asking to send to them directly. Melvin seems like nice person but I preferred using the website a instructed however that did not work out.
I am very sorry about your bad experience during the payment process.
Some months before your reservation, Homeaway didn't allow online payments for owners in the Dominican Republic. Now, they do and the client can pay and do a preliminar reservation. Of course, the owner can accept or decline it, but I didn't know how to deal with the new process. Unfortunately, meanwhile I explored it, your reservation expired and another client took the apartment, given the fact the period you requested was a peak season (Easter).
I beg your pardon again.
Excellent winter stay in this Condo Apartment with a great view and helpful Owner
We were lucky to book this wonderful condo apartment for 96 days during the winter months and so sad to leave. The apartment, located on the 4th floor in tower 4 of the Marbella Condo Complex, has amazing views of the ocean and the pool. It was tastefully decorated and comfortably furnished with linens, plenty of bath and beach towels, a fully equipped Kitchen and lots of seating. All appliances were in good working order. Also included was an excellent wireless sound system and a modern large flat panel TV with English and Spanish channels. The Wifi and internet was very fast with unlimited access to download or stream movies.
The condo complex includes 5 towers built to luxury standards to not only attract well-to-do families from Santa Domingo but also foreign investment and travelers looking for short and long term rentals. The beach is amazing with soft fine white sand that you can walk barefoot along for over 5 km (even longer at low-tide). Security is an important element with staff at the entrances as well as positioned all over the beach. During the week it's relatively quiet with way more lounges, chairs, and daybeds than residents. On weekends and holidays it gets much more busy with owners and guests taking advantage of the ocean, children's playground, enormous pools, Gym, games room, and onsite outdoor restaurant and bar. There are many good restaurants within easy walking distance and even more a short distance away. Groceries can be found at two nearby smaller shops or at larger stores with better prices in San Pedro or Boca Chica. Over the winter months, there were many Canadian and American guests staying at the condo complex who were friendly and shared information that helped make our stay even more enjoyable.
Melvin, the owner of the condo apartment, was very easy to deal with and contact during our stay. From the beginning when we had many questions he responded quickly and made it easy for us to arrange for our deposit, pay the remaining balance, and settle the charges related to our electrical usage. He contacted us to see how we were doing from time-to-time and to ensure that all was going well. When we accidently broke an expensive wine glass and a small plate he told us not to worry about replacing them. He also allowed us to stay an extra day at no additional charge when our departure plans changed.
We highly recommend Melvin’s condo apartment and the Juan Dolio Marbella beach location.
Great review and great people! Thanks a lot, Joe and Silvie!
Juan Dolio en zijn buurman badplaats Guayacanes zijn voor degenen die streven naar een koppels of familie rustgevende vakantie, maar zoals de mogelijkheid om vele excursies te nemen. Indien u verblijft in Juan Dolio, je bent op gelijke afstand van de cultuur, winkelen en dineren en het nachtleven van Santo Domingo, mooie stranden, duiken en andere attracties in La Romana, en slechts een half uur rijden van het drukke en overvolle Boca Chica. De kleine steden van Guayacanes en Juan Dolio volgen de kustlijn.
Juan Dolio heeft een boulevard en een hoofdstraat waar de meeste hotels en restaurants zijn gevestigd. Dus je kunt wandelen, joggen of fietsen in de veiligheid hier. Deze bestemming is perfect voor mensen op zoek naar een rustig toevluchtsoord met het comfort van thuis.
Wat is in de buurt?
Bijna overal waar je maar wilt om te gaan is bereikbaar vanaf de kustweg die dwars door de stad Juan Dolio en volgt de kustlijn. Villas Del Mar is een gebied van Juan Dolio, waar veel restaurants en all-inclusive hotels zijn gelegen. Westen gaande van Juan Dolio je het vissersdorp / badplaats van Guayacanes, dan is de mooie baai-achtige strand van Playa Caribe, gevolgd door Boca Chica ongeveer 20 minuten van Juan Dolio te vinden. Santo Domingo ligt op minder dan 40 minuten rijden naar het westen van Juan Dolio.
Ongeveer 15 minuten verder naar het oosten is het honkbal stad San Pedro de Macoris, geboortestad van Sammy Sosa. Winkelen is goed in San Pedro in het Jumbo winkel. Nog eens 40 minuten verder dan dat is het La Romana / Bayahibe, twee interessante toeristische bestemming.
Iedereen loopt in Juan Dolio. Het strand weg is rustig en heeft zeer weinig verkeer.
Diegenen die actie kunnen terecht voor het gebied casino's, disco's, 18-holes golfbaan of deelnemen aan de watersport programma's aangeboden door de vele grote all-inclusive complexen.
De Cueva de las Maravillas moeten worden opgenomen in elk bezoek. Down under, blader naar de zeer goede verzameling van pre-Columbiaanse kunst temidden van spectaculaire stenography gemaakt met verlichting tegen stalagmieten en stalactieten.
Rondleidingen zijn een uitstekende manier om deze regio te ervaren, omdat er relatief weinig attracties te voet of busing afstand. Enkele van de beschikbare excursies zijn: Jeep Safari, Santo Domingo City Tour en Half Day Tour, Santo Domingo Night Tour, Altos de Chavon kunstenaars dorp / rivier boottocht, Cueva Fun (en haar zeven kilometer lange ondergrondse rivier), Los Haitises en de mangroven park, Saona en Catalina Island.
Een reputatie voor uitstekende keuken heeft postgevat in Juan Dolio en Guayacanes. Verfijnde smaak kunnen kiezen uit een verscheidenheid aan goede restaurants, variërend van informele naar terloops elegante, zelfs een paar met opmerkelijke wijnkelders. Italiaanse restaurants en biefstuk en vis in overvloed hier. Aangezien de meeste restaurants tegemoet te komen aan de binnenlandse vakantiegangers die vanuit Santo Domingo, de prijzen in Juan Dolio zijn aantrekkelijk het hele jaar door.
Enkele aanbevolen restaurants zijn:
El Meson (Spaanse gerechten en zeevruchten)
El Sueño (bekroond met internationale gerechten en zeevruchten)
Paladart (ideaal voor het ontbijt)
El Concón (uitstekend Dominicaanse gerechten en zeevruchten)
Cococane Beach (Franse keuken)
Madera Hout Café (bar restaurant met live muziek tijdens het weekend)
Is er het nachtleven in de eerste plaats in de hotels, maar dit is niet wat je noemt een "party stevig" bestemming zouden noemen. Neem de tijd voor een bezoek aan de vele restaurants in de omgeving en mengen met de menigte die daar woont of pendelt in van Santo Domingo, vooral in het weekend.
