Dominican Republic Vacations

For travellers who appreciate all-inclusive packages, the Dominican Republic is a great sun holiday option. With multiple resort destinations located along the coast, all-inclusive Dominican Republic vacations have a great variety to offer. Among all of the destinations, Punta Cana is the top choice among travellers. Its relatively modern resorts, great golf and touring options, and fantastic prices make it an appealing choice. Punta Cana is also a great spot for beach lovers. Its wide, powdery sand beaches ensure travellers will have a thoroughly relaxing time. For snorkelling and scuba diving, a holiday at Punta Cana or La Romana would be the best option. Meanwhile, for the avid golfer, be sure to make Punta Cana as your first choice, with Santo Domingo coming in at a close second. To excite the senses, visit Santo Domingo where you’ll come across a lively, local, adventurous Latin nightlife.  For spectacular hiking, miles of unspoiled beaches, and lively nightflife, make your way to Puerto Plata. 

Getting Around: Getting around the Dominican Republic is not always easy if your hotel is in a remote destination. Driving is not recommended in the Dominican Republic, but taxis are readily available in tourist locations, and tours are a great way to experience the island. Shuttle flights and public buses are also offered to get around the country. 

Where to Stay: Families, couples, and groups looking to lounge under the sun will find a piece of paradise in the Dominican Republic. From the 3-star Grand Paradise in Samana to the 5-star Grand Bahia Principe Bavaro in Punta Cana, there is something here to delight every traveller.

Weather: The Dominican Republic features an average annual temperature of 25C.  The temperatures vary slightly between summer and winter months, with less humidity in winter. During the winter months, it features high temperatures around 28C and evening lows of around 20C. Summer temperatures average a few degrees higher.

Grand Palladium Punta Cana: Great beach, okay food/service

We travelled to the Palladium Punta Cana the week of May17. Overall it was a good experience- the buffets were typical mass produced buffet breakfasts but we really enjoyed the fresh shakes and the crepe/waffle/pancake station. We never used the omelette station because we don't eat meat and there wasn't really a veggie pan and meat pan but those who did seemed to really enjoy it. There were also lots of meat options like sausage in all forms. We found that lines for the a la cartel stations near the Punta Cana side were much longer than the Bavaro side. We tried the Japanese and Brazilian and all the buffets- all were okay- you can always find something you like. We LOVED the Tapas and Mexican on the Bavaro side. We also showed up around 7 and could get seated right away on the three nights we went. We noticed long line when we were leaving though. There are so many bars throughout we didn't get a chance to visit them all but they all looked really great. We recommend taking the train around the resort on the first day- it will show you all the resort has to offer. Our biggest complaint was that no one introduces you to anything about the resort. You are given a map, taken to your room and you just have to figure the rest out for yourself. For example there is a huge sports area where you can rent bikes, play tennis or soccer/football, or even archery! Also, we really didn't enjoy the nightly entertainment. Overall we didn't get worked up about the little things, we locked up our stuff (twice saw ppl writing reports about their rooms being broken in to), and tried to soak up the sun as much as possible.
