The 150-room Don Juan Beach Resort – in the beachfront community of Boca Chica, situated 40 minutes east of Santo Domingo – has been completely refurbished. The hotel owners have invested some US$2.5 million in this classic facility, which to date is Santo Domingo’s closest beachfront hotel. It is also conveniently located some 10 minutes east of Las Americas international airport.
Because of its recent remodeling process, this classic hotel is now a four-star facility.
Jose Luis Cabral, the president of the hotel company, explains that the remodeling process will reinforce “everything that makes us distinct and unique, such as the seafront views in most of our rooms, the Makey Marina, the beach and nearby keys, where we are now operating kayak tours.”
Mr. Cabral also explained that “these much-needed investments in the facility are being accompanied by complementary actions, such as the professionalization of our staff and improvement of all hotel services.”
The reconstruction program includes the hotel’s common areas, all 150 rooms, as well as the Coral Restaurant, the Gri-Gri Snack Bar & Restaurant featuring pastas and pizzas, and the swimming pool and terrace areas.
The hotel also has a new management team headed by the German national Alois Sicheneder, who brings much experience from his years at the Accor and Melia Group chain of hotels.
