      You don't like large hotel complexes and the 'all-inclusive' concept makes you shiver? But you are looking for a hotel with a beautiful beach, a delightful swimming pool and a great restaurant? Then the Blue JackTar could be the place for you.

      The hotel is located in Puerto Plata, on the Atlantic Coast of the Dominican Republic. Made up of villas, you'll feel like you're in a protected little village. The site is huge, but the beach (playa Dorada, one of the most beautiful in the area) is less than a 5-minute walk from the guest rooms. Overall, this is a quality establishment.

      • Value for money 6.54
      • Location 8.0

      Tubagua Plantation Eco Lodge is one of those places that you have to make a stop at even if it's just for one night. A very rustic lodge lost up in the hills above Puerto Plata, it nestles among tiny villages built around the amber mines in the area. Tim Hall, the owner of Tubagua Lodge is also consul for Canadians living in the region and has poured his energy and love into making Tubagua the charming little place that it is. A mix between huts, one of which is a bit more sophisticated than the rest, and dorms, the lodge is ideal for a backpacker crowd or nature-loving travellers looking to experience the Dominican Republic far from the madding crowd. Waking up to these views is an experience that is second to none!

      • Location 6.75

      The boutique Casa Colonial, part of Small Luxury Hotels, is the only real five-star hotel in the Puerto Plata province. As the name suggests, the hotel's style is based around the country's plantations, but remains contemporary. Holidaymakers looking for a luxury experience right on the beach will revel in a stay here. However, it is worth noting that the hotel is located right in Puerto Plata's resort cluster in Playa Dorada, and its neighbour is a lively Barcelo resort, so the hotel isn't one of those isolated Robinson Crusoe properties. The highlight here is the spectacular wild garden and lake, and of course the hotel's location, right on the beach complete with postcard perfect golden sands and turquoise waters. Casa Colonial is ideal for couples looking for a romantic upmarket break.
