But the charm of the Dominican Republic is also in its small unique hotels, including Tortuga Bay (Punta Cana) and Peninsula House (Samaná) that made the Conde Nast Traveler Gold List.
As well as a range of expensive boutique hotels, an even more personalized service can be found at the many affordable small hotels and eco lodges in beach and mountain areas or to historical heritage centers like Santo Domingo’s Colonial City.
Each hotel offers something a little different, including amenities and entertainment to scenic landscapes, ocean views or secluded tranquility. For family vacations, discover the all-inclusives, the large resorts where children, parents and extended family members can each do their own thing.
For visitors wishing to stay longer, there is a wide variety of modern and comfortable apartments and condos for rent.
