The Best All-Inclusive Resorts in the Dominican Republic

Shares & Saves

A 2008 article in "USA Today" suggested all-inclusive resorts in the Dominican Republic for vacationers who were seeking luxury but who were also budget-conscious. Commonly known as "the DR'" by seasoned travelers, the nation is located on the island of Hispaniola and has started to cater to vacationing travelers looking for a way to enjoy paradise inexpensively. The old image of all-inclusive resorts with their bad buffets, questionable service and cheap accommodations is in the past. Today, all-inclusive resorts have upgraded their amenities, restaurant options, service and accommodation in order to remain competitive with a la carte hotels and cruises. Resorts have also expanded to cater to family vacationers, romantic couples of all ages and even to single travelers.

Casa de Campo also provides fully-supervised, activity-packed day camps for toddlers, kids, tweens and teens. Guests have a choice of over over different restaurants, from Spanish cuisine to pizzas to grilled seafood, as part of the all-inclusive package.
