    Pocket Guide: Dominican Republic

    Book a hotel in the Dominican Republic: a land of contrast. Vast mountains and rampaging rivers give way to lush rainforest and colourful plant life. You can experience tranquillity and natural beauty, as well as lively Caribbean lifestyles with a Latin flavour. The country is found on the island of Hispaniola, which is shares with Haiti to the west, and is a land of sugar plantations, alpine mountains and sweaty mangrove swamps. It was visited by Columbus on his first voyage to the Americas and has a fascinating history which can be explored in depth during your stay. And with numerous National Parks to visited, it’s a place of real discovery.

    Areas & Neighbourhoods: Where to Stay in the Dominican Republic

    Metropolitan Area - The area around the capital, Santo Domingo, to the south of the country. The most urban part of the island where you can find the best shopping, cultural attractions and hotels.

    Eastern Plains - Taking up the whole eastern end of the country, here is where most of the major tourist resorts and hotels are based, including Casa de Campo and Cap Cana.

    Eastern Cibao - With a huge sweeping bay often regarded as one of the most beautiful on the planet, this is a must visit destination.

    Western Cibao - Taking up much of the northern half of the country, this mountainous region also boasts some gorgeous beaches.

    Enriquillo Valley - Covering the southern part of the island, the most secluded area of the country with little tourism but some stunning wildlife.

    Things to See with a Hotel in the Dominican Republic

    The capital Santo Domingo is a lively place where you can soak up the culture, sample cuisine and shop. The east coast area of Bavaro and Punta Cana are where you can discover sweeping beaches and the country’s premier resorts. Discover the central highlands, where vast coffee plantations dominate or head east to explore the Peninsula de Samana, where there’s a real European vibe. Spend some time in the upmarket fishing village of Las Terrenas or explore an underwater world at Sosua. The city of La Romana is another of the island’s biggest with a bustling atmosphere, surrounded by large sugar plantations.

    Things to Do When You Book a Dominican Republic Hotel

    Hit the trail in one of the country’s many national parks, including Los Haitises, Jaragua and Isla Cabritos. Take a catamaran cruise from Saona Island to Punta Cana, where you can dune buggy or fly through the canopy on a zip line adventure. Meet sharks at the Marinarium or take a mega truck safari out into the wild. Around the coast there are some amazing snorkelling and dive spots, including the Bay of Sosua and Punta Cana, or, for those with a head for heights rather than a passion for depths, you can ride the cable car at Puerto Plata to enjoy some incredible views over the island.

    "A beautiful view."
    After checked in we received a room in section Casa Marina Reef instead we reserved CasaMarina Beach. Staff said it is same resort, but rooms there are in different locations, and Beach part is much prettier. So they gave us a new room a next day. Rooms and bathroom were cleaned but they need renovations. Some members of staff were very helpful, and we want to thank Rosa (Frontdesk), and John, and Isaura (waitress).

    "Disappointing Stay"
    We have stayed previously to this stay at Be Live Canoa and it was absolutely beautiful and amazing. Friendly staff, clean rooms, etc. We had VERY high hopes for Be Live Marien, expecting very similar outcomes. Unfortunately, we were rather disappointed. Right off the bat, they switched our reservation. We reserved for a king bed suite with an ocean view, got switched to a normal 2 double bed room with a view on a swampy river. It was not exactly the nicest sight. Secondly, the room wasn't all too clean, hotel facilities were...not exactly clean. Overall, the experience was alright, but I will most likely not come back to this Be Live location. Canoa? Absolutely!

    "Nice hotel, convenient to beach and pools."
    The hotel was excellent. The food, staff were great. Everybody was so nice especially the bell hope whose name was Alexander. He would go out of his way to help us, not just the first day. But all week. The waiters and hostesses were all very kind. The girls at the pool and bartenders couldn't have been nicer. All and all we had a great time, and can't wait to come back. Thank you!!
