Best Puerto Plata all-inclusive resorts for couples, families, nightlife & more

1339973_103_z

A popular and scenic vacation destination situated on the Atlantic north coast of the Dominican Republic, Puerto Plata is perhaps best known for her stunning white sand beaches and the presence of an 18-hole golf course. It’s also home to some great all-inclusive resorts, each with their own ‘best feature’. Though each resort possesses great reviews, dining options and activities suited either for adults or children, or maybe both, they each differ from the next. In order to help you find the best resort for your Puerto Plata vacation, we’ve complied a list of the best Puerto Plata all-inclusive resorts in their own respected category, below.

What are all-inclusive resorts

Generally speaking, a Caribbean all-inclusive resort is a resort that includes at least 3 meals a day as well as drinks (alcoholic and soft) within your nightly rate. Sometimes, however, a resort will also include use of non-motorized watersports and gear. Even more, some will include a spa treatment or two.

How to find the best all-inclusive resort for you

As there are several great choices to select from, it’s best if you first have an idea of what type of stay you’re looking for. Are you looking for a kid friendly resort? Or one that’s more geared toward adults? Are you seeking a resort whose all-inclusive status includes more than just food and drinks, or is that plenty for you? Do you plan to go into town during your stay or do you desire to stay within the resort’s grounds the entire time? Are you more interested in a resort that caters with lots of dining options or is the presence of a wide variety of water sports more important? Once you know the answer to these questions, you’ll have a solid framework to continue your research off of.
