Looking for a relaxing family vacation or a romantic moment in a quiet corner of the Caribbean? I offer an amazing beach apartment in Juan Dolio, on the fourth floor of the luxurious Marbella Towers, where you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the beach, a beautiful landscape and a huge crystal clear pool.
Its two bedrooms, two bathrooms, living room, kitchen, corridors and balconies are decorated in contemporary style, with contrasting colors of the Caribbean, and a maritime theme in the paintings and decorative crafts with special attention to every detail to delight the eye of the guest.
The quiet gated community where the apartment is located has a long, wide, clear, winding pool with two jacuzzis, restaurant, gazebos on the beach, play areas for children, gym and spa services, strict security and permanent staff in all areas.
The Marbella Condo is made up of three towers with 12 floors each, conveniently located just 10 minutes from Las Americas International Airport and 45 minutes from the vibrant city of Santo Domingo, where you can enjoy the exciting nightlife and return the same night to your apartment and sleep peacefully, lulled by the sound of waves and the sea breeze.
Nearby are two excellent golf courses (Guavaberry and Metro), and just a short distance away you will find restaurants, bars, pharmacies, supermarkets, ice cream parlors, and everything you need for a vacation in paradise.

I was born in the Dominican Republic, where I grew up. I live in Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic.
Melvin Peña purchased this apartment in 2011
I bought this property as an investment with the purpose of resale later, but I liked it so much that I've decided to keep it for my enjoyment and for friends and family. Because the stillness and beauty of the condominium and beach, Marbella is the ideal place for recreation and relax.
The unique contemporary, cosmopolitan and Caribbean style of my apartment makes this a place unique to stay and to see, plus to beautiful beach and landscape that bordered the luxury towers. Marbella is just 40 minutes from Santo Domingo, 20 from the airport and 5 of two golf courses. It also has many bars and restaurants nearby, pair go on foot or by car.
Juan Dolio and its neighbor beach town Guayacanes are for those who seek a couples or family restful vacation but like being able to take many excursions. If you are staying in Juan Dolio, you are equidistant from the culture, shopping and dining and nightlife of Santo Domingo, great beaches, scuba diving and other attractions in La Romana, and just half an hour away from busy and crowded Boca Chica. The small towns of Guayacanes and Juan Dolio are following the shoreline.
Juan Dolio has a boulevard and a main street where most hotels and restaurants are located. So you can walk, jog or cycle in safety here. This destination is perfect for those looking for a quiet escape with the comforts of home.
What else is nearby?
Almost anywhere you could possibly want to go is accessible from the coastal highway which cuts through the town of Juan Dolio and follows the shoreline. Villas Del Mar is an area of Juan Dolio where many restaurants and all-inclusive hotels are located. Going west from Juan Dolio you’ll find the fishing village/beach town of Guayacanes, then the pretty cove-like beach of Playa Caribe, followed by Boca Chica about 20 minutes from Juan Dolio. Santo Domingo is less than a 40 minute drive to the west of Juan Dolio.
About 15 minutes further east is the baseball city of San Pedro de Macoris, home town of Sammy Sosa. Shopping is good in San Pedro at the Jumbo store. Another 40 minutes beyond that is the La Romana/Bayahibe area, two interesting touristic destination.
Everybody walks in Juan Dolio. The beach road is quiet and has very little traffic.
Those seeking action can head for the area's casinos, discos, 18-hole golf course or participate in the water sports programs offered by the many large all-inclusive complexes.
The Cueva de las Maravillas should be included in every visit. Down under, browse at the very good collection of pre-Columbian art amidst spectacular stenography created with lighting against stalagmites and stalactites.
Guided tours are an excellent way to experience this region, since there are relatively few attractions within walking or busing distance. Some of the excursions available are: Jeep Safaris, Santo Domingo City Tour and Half Day Tour, Santo Domingo Night Tour, Altos De Chavon artists village/River boat ride, Cueva Fun (and its seven-kilometer long underground river), Los Haitises and the mangroves park, Saona and Catalina Island.
A reputation for excellent cuisine has taken hold in Juan Dolio and Guayacanes. Sophisticated palates can choose from a variety of fine restaurants ranging from informal to casually elegant, even a few with noteworthy wine cellars. Italian restaurants and steak and seafood abound here. Since most restaurants cater to domestic vacationers coming in from Santo Domingo, prices in Juan Dolio are attractive all year round.
Some recommended restaurants are:
El Meson (Spanish cuisine and seafood)
El Sueño (awarded international cuisine and seafood)
Paladart (ideal for breakfast)
El concón (excellent Dominican cuisine and seafood)
Cococane Beach (French cuisine)
Madera Wood Café (bar restaurant with life music during weekend)
There is nightlife primarily at the hotels but this is not what you would call a “party hearty” destination. Take time out to visit the many restaurants in the area and mingle with the crowd that lives there or commutes in from Santo Domingo, especially on weekends.
