World's Mega-Resort Site
Located just east of Puerto Plata, Playa Dorada is the world's largest all-inclusive resort complex, with 13 different hotels, a shopping mall, restaurants, golf and beaches.
With so many activities, many guests spend their entire vacation within the walls of the compound..
Protected by reefs, the 3-mile long Playa Dorada beach offers good sand along with normally warm waters and plenty of watersports. The beach and activities attract visitors not staying there but to control traffic non-guests must purchase a day pass.
A few tips: If you tire of the hotel buffets, go to Hemingway's Cafe for good burgers, ice cold Presidentes and WiFi access.
Casa Colonial, the first and only member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World in the Dominican Republic, offers one of the most upscale vacations.
