All inclusive? All sorted.

Fancy a sun-soaked getaway where everything’s included? Book yourself an all-inclusive holiday to the Dominican Republic. Occupying the eastern side of the island of Hispaniola, this dreamy destination has seen off stiff competition to become the most visited in the Caribbean. And, when you consider everything it has to offer, it’s easy to understand why.

Like nearly all tropical island paradises, the Dominican Republic serves up a shed-load of beautiful beaches. Long stretches of soft white sand, adorned with gently swaying palm trees, are interspersed with dramatic rocky cliffs. And while there are plenty of party hotspots, there are also secluded sections to be found as well. The clear turquoise waters that brush the shore are generally safe for swimming – and they allow for various other adventures, too. Diving, snorkelling, surfing and kitesurfing are all on offer during an all-inclusive Dominican Republic holiday. And, as if the hundreds of beaches on the mainland weren’t enough, there are even more to choose from on the outer isles, like Catalina Island.

Spectacular though it may be, there is more to the Dominican Republic than just its impressive coastline. As the region’s most geographically diverse country, it also packs in desert scrublands and lush mountain scenery – parts of which are reminiscent of the European Alps – while the capital, Santo Domingo, is crammed with charming colonial architecture. So, whether you’re planning a romantic trip or a family holiday, you won’t have any trouble finding ways to fill your time here. And by making your Dominican Republic holiday all-inclusive, things will be that much more relaxing.

That’s because when you book an all-singing, all-dancing all-inclusive package, your meals and drinks are included in one great-value price. So you can fill your boots at the breakfast buffet, dine on different cuisines every night, and sip on a handcrafted cocktail any time you like – and not have to worry about the cost. And, what’s more, most all-inclusive resorts have heaps of activities to choose from, many of which are complimentary.

So what are you waiting for? Give our travel specialists a call and start planning your all-inclusive Dominican Republic holiday.

All-inclusive hotels

When going on an all-inclusive Dominican Republic holiday you’ll have no trouble finding somewhere to stay. The island’s packed with resorts of all different shapes and sizes, with the likes of La Romana, Samana and Puerto Plata being among the most popular destinations. Punta Cana, on the east coast, is another top choice – and it’s where you’ll find some of our favourite hotels.

If you’re bringing the kids with you on your all-inclusive holiday to the Dominican Republic, you should consider Dreams Punta Cana Resort & Spa. With nine dining options, loads of watersports, a jam-packed activity roster and one of the largest swimming pools in the country, it ticks a lot of boxes for holidaygoers both big and small. Alternatively, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana’s another great option for families. As well as having a dedicated kids’ club, it’s got mini-golf, bowling, laser tag, an arcade centre and even an escape room!

If, however, you’re looking for somewhere that’s adults-only, we’d recommend Secrets Royal Beach Punta Cana. Set on a beautiful white-sand beach, this upscale retreat serves up swanky amenities and endless entertainment.

Outdoor adventures

Most all-inclusive resorts come complete with a huge range of activities and extensive entertainment offerings – so you’ll never run out of things to do. But it’d be a shame to spend all your time hanging around the hotel – however nice it may be – when the Dominican Republic offers so many other opportunities for adventure.

Golf is particularly popular in these parts and, with 26 at the latest count, it boasts more courses than anywhere else in the Caribbean. Watersports are also widely available. Depending what time of year you go, you can try anything from diving and snorkelling to surfing, kitesurfing and windsurfing. You can also go sinkhole swimming at the island’s various cenotes, or enjoy further aquatic adventures at Damajaqua Cascades, near Puerto Plata – a complex of 27 waterfalls where you can swim, climb, jump and slide about to your heart’s content.

If your trip falls sometime between December and March, you’ll be able to watch humpback whales put on a show off the coast of Samana. And of course, with over 1,200 kilometres of largely-pristine coastline to choose from, you can always while away part of your all-inclusive Dominican Republic holiday at the beach.

Santo Domingo

At some point during your all-inclusive Dominican Republic holiday, it’s worth spending a day or two exploring the capital, Santo Domingo. Rocking a completely different vibe to the island’s popular beach resorts, La Capital – as it’s commonly known – is the oldest continuously inhabited European settlement in the Americas. It’s also the site of the New World’s first ever university, cathedral, castle, monastery and fortress – so a visit here’s an absolute must for anyone interested in history.

At the heart of the city lies the Zona Colonial, surrounded by the ruins of the original city wall. A dedicated UNESCO World Heritage Site, its cobblestone streets are crammed with beautifully restored mansions and churches. However, as a living neighbourhood, it’s also got its share of cool cafes, trendy bars and upscale restaurants with lovely little colonial-era courtyards. In fact, the nightlife in Santo Domingo generally is second-to-none. There are heaps of live music venues as well as nightclubs blasting out pulse-quickening merengue. Plus there are markets, museums and glorious botanic gardens to discover.

Best time to visit Dominican Republic

If you’re booking a Caribbean getaway, you obviously want to go when it’s warm and sunny. So you’ll need to plan your all-inclusive Dominican Republic holiday carefully, because the weather does vary throughout the year. Although the island is nearly always warm, with an average annual temperate of 25°C, things are hotter – and more humid – in the summer months. And, like many tropical destinations, the Dominican Republic also has distinct wet and dry seasons. In the majority of the country, the rainy season is from May to November. Although it’s not continuously wet during these months, downpours do happen most days – and they’re particularly heavy in the mountainous northeast part of the island. Things are different on the north coast, though, where the wet season runs from November to January.

Mid-December to February is typically the most popular time for an all-inclusive Dominican Republic holiday. However, if you want to avoid the crowds, you might prefer to travel in shoulder season, which runs from March to July, or during low season, between August and early December. Chances are you’ll get a better deal on accommodation if you travel outside peak season, too.
