You can change money at shops in the Plaza Playa Dorada, BPS to Peso or use an ATM. Of course notify your bank of your intentions.

As to changing money at home it would depend on the rate. Here's a rate chart:

You will get a far better rate of exchange if change your money once in the DR........just pop over to the local cambios in the Plaza and see you will give you the best rate........as of today the rate is £ = 70.50 pesos.......remember you will need your $US10 per person for your tourist card and $US20 per person for your departure tax.
