Guesthouses and B&Bs
The staff is cute, friendly and useless, but what you get for your money here means the Bayahibe has the best budget rooms in town. This three-story modern building is easily noticeable, since it’s the biggest around...
Hotel Neptuno's Refugio
This friendly hotel is your best bet for comfort and mainstream traveler atmosphere – a textbook testament to the definition of refuge with chirping birds, friendly cats, lush common areas and Caribbean views...
El Rincon De Abi
This French-owned hotel is well maintained and full of cute colors and character. Even better, there’s a somewhat established independent traveler scene here, a welcome respite from the norm...
Casa Bonita Tropical Lodge
Santa Cruz de Barahona
Formerly the vacation retreat of a wealthy Dominican family – and now run by the daughter along with her American husband, a former New York City chef – Casa Bonita is set on a hill with stunning Caribbean and mountain views in all directions...
Casa De Campo
Known as much for its celebrity guests (LeBron James, Beyoncé, Kanye West) and villa owners (Shakira, Vin Diesel, Sammy Sosa) as for its facilities and wealth of activities, this enormous, 28-sq-km complex truly resembles a city-state, albeit one with...
Garden Hotel Lomita Maravilla
A short walk down a dirt road – often muddy – off Av Duarte, you’ll find one of the gems of Las Terrenas...
Iberostar Hacienda Dominicus All Inclusive
An impeccably maintained resort doused in soothing pastels, the Iberostar Hacienda Dominicus has beautifully landscaped grounds – most of the buildings surround quiet interior courtyards with beautiful historic Spanish tiles and there are duck-strewn ...
Antiguo Hotel Europa
Considering the impressive-looking facade, spacious lobby and uniformed bellboys of this hotel only two blocks west of Plaza España, the rooms are a letdown. Ask for one with a balcony to ensure your room receives light...
Viva Wyndham Dominicus Beach All Inclusive
This Italian–American resort occupies an excellent beachfront property lined with thick, soft sand...
Hotel River View
The only hotel in La Romana proper that has both a pleasant enough location and the right price, this multistory place is perched a block from the Río Dulce and an excellent choice for independent travelers...
La Dolce Vita Residence
Less ‘dolce vita’ than Fellini had in mind, the apartments at this pastel-colored seafront complex are nevertheless good long-term rentals. Rooms come with fully equipped kitchens, wicker furniture and the kind of Haitian artwork sold on the streets...
This family-run hotel, not to be confused with the Residencia Venezia, compensates for slightly cheesy room decor with its friendly enthusiasm. All rooms have cable TV and ceiling fan, and a 2nd-floor balcony for relaxing; rates drop for extended stays.
Far from the beach and located on an extremely busy and loud thoroughfare, the Hotel Frano is popular with Dominican businessmen, but hardly a logical choice for tourists...
Hodelpa Gran Almirante
Santiago de los Caballeros
Referencing Columbus, the Grand Admiral, signals this plush hotel’s ambitions. The obvious choice for business travelers on an expense account, Gran Almirante’s sundeck, spa and gym also entices tourists looking for extra comfort...
Don Juan Beach Resort All Inclusive
The kind of Dominican all-inclusive that looks better from a distance, Don Juan is best appreciated with a discount – otherwise the bland food and mediocre rooms, not to mention the lack of privacy on the beach, will feel overpriced.
Hotel Coco Plaza
This rambling four-story Mediterranean-style hotel is across the street from the beach west of town on the way to Playa Las Ballenas...
Crowne Plaza Santo Domingo
Other than the Hilton, the InterContinental has the plushest lobby of the hotels on the Malecón and an even more hip bar-lounge area...
Viva Wyndham Tangerine All Inclusive
A bit of a fish out of water in this independent traveler enclave, this resort, part of the Wyndham chain, offers a by-the-numbers all-inclusive experience...
Hilton Santo Domingo
Easily the nicest of the luxury hotels on the Malecón, the Hilton is part of a huge complex, including a casino, movie theaters and several restaurants (however, much of it still remains vacant)...
Renaissance Santo Domingo Jaragua Hotel & Casino
Las Vegas comes to the Malecón at this hotel boasting the largest casino in the Caribbean. Under the Marriott brand, the spacious rooms in the 10-story tower and low-slung annex have been upgraded, though furnishings are still dated...
Hotel Magna 365 (Coming Soon Sheraton)
The curiously designed and cavernous lobby at the Meliá doesn’t inspire confidence, but this hotel does have the nicest pool area on the Malecón. Be sure you get one of the renovated rooms, which have plush bedding and marble bathrooms.
Boutique Hotel Palacio
Cross colonial with a little touch of medieval and you have the Palacio, a maze-like hotel occupying a 17th-century mansion only a block north of the Calle El Conde pedestrian mall...
