Air Conditioned Lobby

After returning & spending 5 days at the Royal Suites Turquesa, I have realized how nice it is to have an air conditioned lobby with a nice bar. After 16 trips to DR this is the first time I have been somewhere with a/c in the main lobby & I have to say I am sold.

What other resorts have this?

So it's completely enclosed? And if it's enclosed, are people allowed to smoke? I'm thinking it kind of defeats the purpose of going south and having an open air lobby near the ocean feeling the breeze.

Smoking is not allowed in the lobby.

Hey I'm a middle aged woman & can break a sweat in Bruce County in the middle of winter, so yep I appreciated the a/c in the lobby a lot.

Cayo Levantado in Samana also has a large enclosed, non-smoking, lobby bar in its main building with great a/c.

Cheers ♥️

The main lobby area at Excellence El Carmen is enclosed/air conditioned. Massive floor to ceiling windows though, so thankfully it doesn't feel closed off. The bar is at the bottom of the grand staircase, with a sports bar on one side and the theater area on the other side.
