We stayed here over Christmas. Juan Dolio appears to have very few choices for hotels that are not All-Inclusive. That being said, Plaza Real is a decent choice if you don't like All-Inclusives. It is a small, independent hotel located in Juan Dolio. The beach is very pretty. You can walk for a long time along the shore. The hotel itself is located across the street from the beach. We did have access directly across the street. Not sure if that will change when construction of a new building is complete. The rooms are fine. Our room did not have air conditioning; fine for December but could be a problem at other times as there were few windows in the room. Lighting was terrible, so if you like to read at night- forget it. There was a big fridge but it was super noisy and really smelled so we didn't use it. The pool area was small but pleasant and quiet. It was filled and a small water fall was working. There is a pool bar area run by a friendly Cuban family. The restaurant up front is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There is a store next door, laundry next door, and a few restaurants in easy walking distance. Please note that there are many private residences. Do not attempt to cross from the beach to the road through any of them. Many are guarded by dogs and unfortunately my husband got bit. By the way, there is a 24 hour clinic in town!
