4 Beds/4BA Large Luxurious Condo with Panaromic Views of Beach / Ocean
average rating of 4.75 based on 8 reviews

The property was beautiful. The beach, condo and staff were amazing. Balcony alone was worth it!

  • 5 of 5

Like some prior guests, we had toilet issues, but they were fully resolved by mid week. Ernesto was so helpful and friendly. The views from the condo and location on the beach were totally worth any lack of convenience. Our group of 8 agreed that we would prefer the experience we had to an all inclusive resort where we never left the property. We would stay here again in an instant.

Amazing, relaxing, beautiful accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Dan was an exceptional host. He had Ernesto there to greet us, show us around, and make sure all of our questions were answered. The apartment is more than adequately equipped. There is everything that you need there from kitchen equipment to beach towels.

We were hoping for a quiet, relaxing stay and that's exactly what we had. The pools are amazing. The ocean beautiful. It's a little rocky at the shore, but the waves bring that in. Swim out a little and it's nice and sandy.

Great stay, but be prepared for low water pressure

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the location and the condo very much. The condo was clean and comfortable. Ernesto was helpful and friendly. The only issue was that out of the four showers, only one had good water pressure. The master shower was the next best, and was a sort of a trickle. Was hard when you had six people needing to shower after the beach.

The facilities and beach were nice. Some good restaurants and convenience stores within walking distance.

Nice but not entirely as advertised...

  • 4 of 5

I question some of the reviewers perspectives. This is a very nice, very large, 2nd floor condo -Not a penthouse, though.

Easy drive to Santo Domingo.

I felt a bit deceived by how this condo is advertised. While almost luxury by island standards, it needs some tweaking and care to bring it up to true luxury. The view is amazing except for the alley off the left side of balcony- this is where they walk pets and beyond this is a wall separating the complex from the public area. The staff wheelbarrowed and dumped the refuse off of the complex beach just beyond this wall every morning. Not the best way to do it.

Hot water only worked intermittently. Even after having the caretaker come and discovering that the housekeeper had accidentally bumped the off switch to the heater, the breaker blew every few minutes so always an issue.

Dishwasher not functioning and was known issue prior to our arrival. We should have been told, it made a bit of a difference to "vacation".

Bed linens ill-fitting. Queen bedspread on King bed; felt like condo had been cleaned and set-up by someone who didnt' know how to do it exactly. Dirty towel in master closet. Someone's swimsuit in another.

Beach towels yes, but not enough for 5. Used large bath towels instead.

Workout room in complex smaller & functional but not something to count on.

Melamine mis-matched plates in kitchen. Only 2 things suitable for microwave use. Kitchen set-up fine. Would have been hard to entertain large group in a classy way. Fine for casual.

Leather furniture nice. Stereo a bit outdated and no directions for use. TV in 3rd bedroom not working.

Area very quiet overall. More of a locals place - we didn't exactly feel welcome with the dominican hospitality we had been told about. Security present on condo beach, but public beach just a few yards away. Public beach area seemed questionable. Lots of glass, some trash, and worn out abandoned buildings along its shore. Sad if anything.

No place to shop close by. You could "make do" with a few things from the shop a few blocks down.

Complex beach nice. Weed/Wave barrier ruins view a bit. Should have been mentioned.

Local area felt a little"forgotten" compared to other places in DR.

Overall, we would return with different expecations, it IS beautiful. This is an "almost" luxury condo... Owners responded to our questions initially, but not in the few days just before our arrival, not sure what happened.

Owner's Response: We are sorry we didn't meet your expectations. I was under the impression from Randy, that you had a great vacation and he even inquired about realestate in the complex. Nonetheless, we will seriously review all your suggestions. I can't say I've ever seen the staff at Marbella dump any refuse in or around the grounds, nonetheless, even though they are Marbella employees, and not my employees, I will share your observations with Marbella's management. Thank you for bringing to our attention that we had a faulty breaker. We have changed the breaker, and the water heater is working perfectly fine. The dishwasher was working properly until the motherboard malfunctioned just prior to your arrival. We ordered a new motherboard and dishwasher is now up and running. We provide towels for use in all bathrooms, but do not provide beach towels for our guest. The beach towels you are referring to where provided to you as a courtesy. Onsite, we maintain a large stock of plates, utensils, glasses, sheets, comforters, covers, etc., and if you had simply made a request for microwaveable plates, we would have been more than happy to immediately accommodate you. There are four televisions in the home, including two with 4K technology, 65 inch and curved 55 inch and they all are functioning properly. Again, thank you for your feedback, the only thing that I must take issue with is your comment about the lack of dominican hospitality. I am not dominican, but have been visiting and/or living in the DR for 25 years, and can attest that they are the happiest most hospitable people I have ever been around. Juan Dolio is a place where tourist and locals intermingle and enjoy, unlike many of the resorts on the Island which are exclusively for foreigners. Juan Dolio is a beach town located within 10 minutes of Boca Chica and San Pedro de Macoris, which are full of all types of shops. San Pedro de Macoris is the 3rd largest city in the DR, but, I must admit, I usually travel to Santo Domingo for all my shopping. The barrier you are referring too, is actually in response to algae which has been reported in all news agencies, that have been washing up in large quantities throughout the Carribean and U.S. States such as Florida and Texas. As you accurately noted, this barrier maintains the "complex beach nice." Glad to hear that you would return and we look forward to providing all our future guest and yourself a true luxury experience.

Amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo -- the master bedroom, the living room and the deck had the most amazing views! One of our party even said the best part of his whole vacation was the time he spent on the deck :) The other two bedrooms faced inland with small windows, so we had to draw straws to see who got the HUGE master. We also loved how responsive Dan and crew were to our requests. I couldn't get in touch with Ernesto, so I sent an email to Dan and surprisingly enough he called me in the next minute or so! I would definitely rent this condo again!

Juan Dolio has glorious world class beaches with white sand which stretch for 2 1/2 miles. Juan Dolio's proximity to everything, and centrally located between Santo Domingo and la Romana, making this seaside village the ideal Caribbean destination—the next 'South Beach'—with an abundance of restaurants that offer international cuisines and condominiums that demonstrate style and first-class amenities fit for the international tourist.

Las Americas Airport is a mere 20 minutes from Juan Dolio. If you are staying for at least a week, you may want to buy a Dominican cell phone at Jumbo. It’s a mere $20 for a basic one, plus minutes. It can save you a significant amount of money if you'll be making local calls from your condo/hotel/resort.

Santo Domingo is positioned just 45 minutes west of Juan Dolio. Independencia separates the old city from modern Santo Domingo, a sprawling, noisy city with a population of close to 2 million. The 12 cobblestone blocks of Santo Domingo's Zona Colonial contain most of the major sights in town. It's one of the most appealing historic districts in the Caribbean and is best explored on foot. The Zone ends at the seafront, called the Malecón.

Spanish civilization in the New World began in Santo Domingo's 12-block Zona Colonial. As you stroll its narrow streets, it's easy to imagine this old city as it was when the likes of Columbus, Cortés, and Ponce de León walked the cobblestones, pirates sailed in and out, and colonists started settling.

Tourist brochures claim that 'history comes alive here'—a surprisingly truthful statement. Almost every Thursday to Sunday night at 8:30 a typical 'folkloric show' is staged at Parque Colón and Plaza de España. During the Christmas holidays there is an artisans' fair and live-music concerts take place. A fun horse-and-carriage ride throughout the Zona costs $25 for an hour, with any commentary in Spanish. The steeds are no thoroughbreds, but they clip right along. You can also negotiate to use them as a taxi, say, to go down to the Malecón. The drivers usually hang out in front of the Hostal Nicolas de Ovando.

You can get a free walking-tour map and brochures in English at the Secretaria de Estado de Turismo office at Parque Colón (Columbus Park), where you may be approached by freelance, English-speaking guides who will want to make it all come alive for you. They'll work enthusiastically for $25 an hour for four people.

Juan Dolio Amenities: food, drink, water activities, shops, Marina Best For: family vacations; partiers; relaxation; romance; socializing; sunrise; sunset; swimming; walking.
