Playa Grande

Playa Grande is, without doubt, the most well known of all the beaches in the world and a must see and visit for any visitor here.  Voted one of the world’s top ten beaches by Conde Nast Travel Magazine Playa Grande is 1.5 Km of soft powdery sand fringed by tall coconut palms enclosed by cliffs formed from corals.  Depending on conditions the sea can be flat calm or with large waves and sufficient surf for surf or body boarding.  

El Caleton

Locally referred to as La Playita or The Lovers Beach it is a delightful cove of white sand surrounded by mangrove forest.  The water here is calm and clear making it safe for children and ideal for snorkeling.  Enclosed between two forest covered headlands it is a sheltered and romantic beach which the locals enjoy at the weekends.  There are some facilities on Playa Caleton so cool drinks and fresh fish meals are available along with other traditional Dominican foods.


We are proud to have the friendliest staff in the area and pride ourselves in our service excellence. We are eager to serve you every need. Our bilingual concierge, international chef, and all of our bartenders, waiters, housekeepers, laundress and even gardeners look forward to serving you.
