Coworkers took me here to have dinner with a view. It was a quaint place that had good food. The price was good as well. I recommend it.

Stayed at the Jaragua hotel right in front of the malecón and went to a restaurant on the malecón, nice boulevard to stroll, noticed that they are making renovations and it needs better lighting through the streets.

Beautiful road by the ocean but the building in the area looks ruins lots of trailers. Traffic very heavy most of the time. Don't walk alone the city it's dangerous

I love the Malecon, I feel is the crown jewel of Santo Domingo but is such a pity it is very dirty because Dominicans don't seem to really care about their own treasure. I refuse to drop cups or empty bottles, I refuse to be part of the mess. The Malecon is beautiful even dirty, I love to walk by... More

Everywhere in the world, the seafront is expensive and exclusive; but in Santo Domingo. Different governments have tried to improved it, but for some reasons it does not become a great place to visit. You can walk some parts if not local. Does not expect too much

Go to Adrian Tropical for the best local food there is. The portions were huge and the price was perfect. You can walk the George Washington Avenue until you can go anymore. Great shopping and great food.

I went for a walk in the afternoon, it was too hot, and there were a LOT of cars and trucks, impossible for me to cross the street, so I waited like 10 minutes inhaling the contamination and sweating. We finally crossed the street running, before any car comes, we just headed to "Adrian Tropical" a dominican restaurant, trying to... More

You will not really see tourists here. The water and beach was full of trash. Pretty dirty. A few restaurants along, we did not try any. Fisherman, kids swimming with plastic bottles around them...

This shoreline is okay, there are definitely better kept, prettier locations in the city. I wouldn't adviser walking around in the evening/at night on your own or in a small group.
