The food is tasty with a nice selection to satisfy everyone. I sat in one of the cabanas on the beach and I couldn't ask for better atmosphere. The beach is quiet and peaceful plus you have the option to sit semi indoors when there is inclement weather. The service was satisfactory, they were always there when I needed them... More

I visited long time ago on a Holiday. I came across these pictures and it looks even worse, as if it needs a facelift. The time I went (maybe 2007 or 2008) it was very crowded... since it was a popular spot. It didn't feel special enough for couples nor cool enough for families. Food was ok. It's a good... More

First of all, they charge rd$ 2,500.- minimum consumption to use a sunbed. BAD food! Very slow service! IS NOT WORTH THE MONEY! 100 meter away you can find a better place "Soya Azul".

Located this place using the app. Drove right past it the first time and ended up in San Pedro. After a you turn and a redirect I found the place and was glad i made the effort to get here. We had a nice paella with chicken and beef on the beach in one of the bungalo beds. Drinks prefaced... More

The place is awesome to chill, to have a good time with friends. Minimum consumation 2500 pesos is very accurate for this chilling place. We enjoyed a lot with friends and family. Don't judge the food, it's ok even beeing some more expensive but ok. Just choose the right apetizers and enjoy the place.

We order some sea food that we did not like because it was not fresh, we explained the issue to the waiter and they offer us another dish for... More

If you are in Old Juan Dolio, you have to at least look at this restaurant’s menu, there is something for everyone. It’s a small place and the owner/cook is such a good chef. The owner and chef’s name is Sergio, he is from Kazakhstan. A tip, the grilled items are cooked over real charcoal so prepared to wait for... More
