This place has a tropical setting, with palm trees dotted around the hotel and Maimon Beach just outside. It’s really secluded here, but Puerto Plata is only 15 minutes’ drive. There are a couple of lagoon pools. And during the week, the poolside restaurant switches between Italian and a steakhouse. Activities-wise, there are watersports down at the beach.


Down at the beach there’s windsurfing and sailing. Or you could take out one of the kayaks. Tennis is a big pastime here with 3 floodlit courts back at the hotel.
