Accommodation in Dominican Republic

Flag of Dominican Republic

There are over 55,000 hotel rooms in Dominican Republic, making it the largest room supply in the entire Caribbean. The southeast coast is known for its modern hotels located at beautiful beaches. In Santo Domingo rates remain the same all year whereas resort hotels have winter prices higher and summer prices lower by up to 10%. Hotels outside Santo Domingo and La Romana are considerably less expensive. A service charge of 10% and a 12% sales tax will be added to all bills. There is a 5-star grading system, but visitors should be aware that even the highest grade is somewhat lower in standard than is usual in the Caribbean.

Another accommodation option is staying at guest houses which are very economical; best found after arrival in the country.
