All-inclusive resorts have been striving to outdo each other in offering luxury experiences, but there’s still a place to stay if you’re looking for the certainty of paying one low price for all your food, drink, and fun. The Dominican Republic has long been the bargain destination for Caribbean travelers, and remains the go-to for those looking for a budget friendly beach vacation where the view matters more than having 20 different dining options or a room kitted out with a balcony whirlpool. Here are our picks for the best Dominican Republic resorts where you can get in for under $200 per person, per night.
This Marriott Autograph Collection resort (yes, you can use your points here) has one major drawback: it’s not on the beach. That explains why you can get such good deals on this family friendly all-inclusive, and having to take a short walk to the sand is more than offset by the resort’s big water park, which has a kid-pleasing wave pool, 7 water slides and tubes, splash pads, and spray grounds. Guests at the 273-room resort also have inclusive access to a kids club and teen lounge, plus add-ons like spa services and Diamond Club amenities.
