In the Dominican Republic, hotels found in the larger beach resorts will often include a few European hotel chains, so keep a look out for good accommodation from Riu, Iberostar, Barcelo and NH, to name a few. As in any resort, you get what you pay for and if you're opting for a more luxurious hotel you are likely to find a wider range of facilities available, including spas, a selection of in-house restaurants and on-site activities.
There are plenty of beach resorts, including the popular Bavaro, East Bayahibe, Cayo Levantado and Costa Dorado. And most areas, such as Samana Town, Playa Dorada and Bahia Maimon, offer a range of different hotels within the resort itself. Hotels in the Dominican Republic generally work on an all-inclusive basis, offering a range of buffet-style meals and delicious local drinks. You will find a range of accommodation, with three- to five-star choices for any budget. However, it's worth remembering that star ratings are slightly different to those in Europe.
