From the moment Manuel, our security guard, has raised the gate to allow you entry you will marvel at the cleanliness and the well-maintained grounds of the small community of Bahia de Arena. Surrounded by palms and luxuriant tropical vegetation you will immediately begin to see why this very private enclave is such a desired location for vacationers from all over the world.
Step on to the boardwalk, just seconds from Joya de la Bahia, and you will be startled by the amazing beauty of Cabarete Bay Beach. Stroll along the seemingly never ending beach, or stop for a cocktail or a sumptuous meal at a number of ocean side restaurants. Along the way get your hair braided or for the more adventurous get a quick lesson in kite boarding or windsurfing. In just moments you will arrive at the quaint but bustling town of Cabarete where you will find unique shops and restaurants or just relax at an outdoor café and immerse yourself into the wonderful culture of this dynamic Dominican town.
For the nighthawks the beach strip comes alive with any number of ocean front discos tempting you to participate in the passionate beat of Salsa and Meringue.
Don’t just be a number at an impersonal all-inclusive hotel. Come, be yourself and experience a vacation that has something for everyone, all within the very close confines of your home- Joya de la Bahia!

Guestbook comments from the owner
First I would like to Thank the guest who wrote review # 4760711.
As the owner of this Villa I must admit I had not been to the Villa in almost 2 years. I was disappointed in this review and went to look for myself. Here's what I found.
The Villa was indeed in need of painting, as was the pool. It was originally expected that the last paint job would last 5 years. It didn't, it lasted 3 years. Contracts have been issued to drain, reseal and repaint the pool as well as the complete exterior of the Villa and Pool House. All work will be completed by mid-December 2011. As to pool chemicals there is an automatic dispenser that was in perfect working order. I assume there was a language issue here as there is no problem. All beaches in the Dominican are open to the public. The beauty in our part of the beach is that an easy 5 minute walk takes you to the restaurants on the beach where you can swim or be waited on without leaving your beach chair. I'm not aware of shelling other than that they are offered for sale along the beach as well as in the village of Cabarete. Now to the problem. I have to rely on a local management company to provide services including maintenance, lawn care, pool service and etc. These accusations as well as the condition (need of Painting) of my Villa are totally unacceptable. We now have a new management company which includes pool service. I would like to thank all of you, my guests, for your business as well as your comments; rest assured they will be acted upon.
