“100 Feet of Public Beach left for locals”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Amidst miles of beachfront, developers were oh so generous to allow non all-inclusive visitors and locals a small patch of beach wedged between the gross land grab at the hands of the all inclusives. That's what is called Dominicus Beach.

You cannot even lie on the beach without listening to the pounding club music from Wyndham.

That said, the beach is very nice, if you're fortunate to visit on a day where you don't have to basically lie on top of the next beach-goer.

The sand is near perfect and the weather seems to be great during the coldest months in the Northeast, like January and February. The water is very clear and not too warm, just lovely.

I guess it makes sense that hotel corporations have come in and captured nearly all of the beachfront from la romana to the National Park. What a shame, if you're not a fan of staying in an all inclusive, you're out of luck.

“A wonderful landscape”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

I went to the beach almost every day while I was in the hotel. It is an incredible place with unique crystalline water and fine sand, on which it is very comfortable to walk and lie down. It is also possible to have a refreshing and agreeable sensation by going snorkeling in the sea, where all very nice fish stay.

“Water was warm”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Very sandy, small waves, really warm water. Just be careful on the coral in the sand on the west side of the resort.

“small beach”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

The public beach was next door to our resort. The iberstar. Its very small and on the weekend it is packed. The water there is beautiful just like our resort. No need if you are at any resort to go and visit it.
