The Puerto Plata Village at Playa Dorada is an excellent choice as an all-inclusive resort. We were there for a week in early June, during the off-season. We were able to get a good rate and had a fabulous time. From the time we were greeted with drinks at check-in until a thoughtful farewell from our maid, Apolonia, we had excellent service. The staff from the manager (Jimmy) on down was very friendly and many spoke English. Every morning we were treated to a custom-made omelette cooked up by Eddy and a shake of various fruits that was to die for. You have your choice of 4 restaurants -Buffet, Italian, Mexican and International- and all were muy bueno! The room was pretty basic but we were in it only to sleep, shower, et.al! It had a very nice terrace with a beautiful view of the mountains. A Robert Trent Jones golf course serpentines though the complex. There are 2 pools, one for adults with a swim-up bar and one for children without. The beach is beautiful and a short 2 minute shuttle (which runs every 10 minutes) or a 3-4 minute walk away. If you book a "Jeep Safari" or any other excursion, do so with someone at the Plaza, a centrally located group of stores, ATMs, bars, etc. The hotel wanted $69/person for a "Jeep Safari" and we booked it through the "King" ("I have a brother in the U.S.-Elvis!") at the Plaza for $20/person. We had good luck at "VENUS" buying jewerly-you could bargain for a good price and the store appeared very reputable. Several casinos are in the complex as well. Although the bugs did not bother us too much, bring insect repellent, "Afterbite" or the like and sunscreen-all are expensive there.
I highly recommend the Puerto Plata Village. We had a great time, great weather and great service and food - all for a reasonable price!
