I stayed at Don Juan Beach Resort from August 4, 2015- August 7, 2015. The stay was good and the prices were nice for a quick getaway. I went with my mom for a girls trip. The guest service agents were very helpful for the most part. At the time that I went there, there was alot of construction going on in the part of the hotel where they were hosting breakfast, lunch and dinner. There was only one pool that was open. what was advertised on the the website was not what was advertised when we checked in. The room was very spacious and was very clean. The lady that serviced our room did a great job. Also the bartender made amazing drinks. We were right by Boca Chica beach which was awesome. We also had a lady on the beach that worked with a massage agency that was giving massages on the beach and she was from Haiti and the sweetest person that we met. The food at the hotel was not that great. So I went out and mingled with the locals and that experience was much more amazing. I wouldnt stay there again because it was not what I expected but I would recommend it for someone that doesnt want to spend to much money. Besides that both my parents are Dominican and I hadn't been there for 13 years but I loved the trip and the food gets even better from the locals everytime I go. :)You should definitly try the chiccarron with Yuca, best simple dish and inexpensive with the locals. so yummy
My husband booked this trip through a site I have never used (orbitz) needless to say I will stick to the gum. 1st off when we reached the airport in Santo Domingo, we were informed that we could not use the shuttle service we paid for and had to pay $20 US for a taxi. While driving through the streets of Boca Chica I was not impressed to say the least and immediately felt uncomfortable and out of my element and that's coming from some one born and raised in NYC in the projects during the crack era. Front desk personnel Jose and Felix were awesome!!!! We were told we had a beautiful suite. It was 8 flights up with no elevators. Our balcony overlooked a noisy pool being utilized by locals. We went to the "snack bar" which only served hamburgers or hot dogs. The food was undercooked and I suffered the consequence the next day. The beach was dirty and swarming with dogs, locals, and vendors. I never saw ants on a beach, but this was a first. The highlight of my 1st day was the buffet dinner was delicious and enjoyable, just be prepared to be surrounded by begging cats. Day 2 much of the same and my husband and I ventured to the adult side and was informed by the front desk that due to water issues the adult side was closed. The pool, the restaurant, and bar were all closed. Dinner again was delicious, but we were surrounded by begging cats again. Wi-Fi is only available in the lobby. After day 2, I had enough and we moved to a BEAUTIFUL property only 3 minutes away. We had several other guest complain and leave as well
Impossible to communicate. Very little English with staff. Balance of tourists did not speak English. Food was excellent. Who doesn't love fresh fruit and fish. Staff was as helpful as could be. Had two rooms across from each other. Myself and husband in one and my two teenage children in the other. Beach was clean in front of hotel but the balance of the beach was public and after everyone went home it was pretty bad. Impossible to have a cabana on beach. A very limited number and some of the tourists were quite rude and felt they were more entitled then others. I actually saw some verbal arguments between patrons of the hotel. I would not return only because of the rudeness of some of the visitors staying at the hotel.
I went there for a short vacation, 3 days. Sad: i was there and 2 days of rain. But thanks to the staff and the hotel I could still relax and enjoy my stay. The 3+* Star hotel offers more than expected. I ordered a stay at the Adult Only - and get a huge surprise. Your separation to the normal part guarantees you a private space at the pool. Staff with a lot of attention, huge rooms with ocean view. Yes, the safe and WiFi is included, so the upgrade for Adult Only is worth it! And you get the possibility to go once a week to the Marina, a dream location.
A group of us that belong to a nonprofit traveled to nova chicks where we are building a trade school just outside b/c. We have been going to the Dominican for a number of yrs. this was our first stay at Don Juan and found the rooms very clean. Large with a beautiful view of the waterfront. The bathrooms were very roomy and very clean. Nice shower with immediate hot water
