The Dominican Republic welcomed a record number of international tourist arrivals in July. Over 730,000 people visited the island throughout the month, and the trend is likely to continue. The island’s year-round warm weather, vast amount of all-inclusives, and world-renowned beaches make it the perfect spot to enjoy a Caribbean vacation. While you could certainly go all out and spend a fortune, there are plenty of options just as luxurious as the higher-cost resort up the street. We have found several all-inclusives that you are sure to love. If traveler reviews are any indication, these resorts will not disappoint.
The prices shown reflect a stay of 7 nights between September 6th and September 13th and are based on two people. If traveling with a larger group, room rates may vary, and there will be additional charges in order to cover their all-inclusive access. Only beachfront resorts with user reviews of 8/10 or higher were considered to ensure you have the best vacation at the best price. Unless otherwise stated, all food and drinks (including alcohol) are included in the nightly price.
