I'm thinking about going to Dominican Republic in February or March.
I'm in a manual wheelchair and need a wheelchair accessible room with spacious bathroom (at least some free space beside the toilet for the wheelchair) and a roll-in-shower. Since all Swedish travel agencies are completely useless when it comes to providing accurate information - I'm turning to you guys here at Tripadvisor, hoping for some help...
I would like to stay in a five or four star all inclusive hotel close to the beach. We're three friends traveling together, 25-30 years old. Any suggestions? I've been looking at Riu Palace Bavaro (figured that the fact its newly built should mean good access, but you never know...) Do you know anything about wheelchair access at any of the resorts in Punta Cana? Do you know if you can rent beach wheelchairs to go into the ocean, or if any hotels have them (I read something about Iberostar having one)?
I can move to a regular taxi with some difficulties and is therefore trying to minimize the number of taxi trips. Are there any hotel that is closer to the "city centre" than others? Is beach access better at some resorts?
Please help me ;)
