All-Inclusive Beachfront Resort in the Caribbean
Every week, Lifestyle Crown Residence Suites welcomes new guests with a beachside party featuring live entertainment, dancing, and a fireworks finale. This fiesta supplies a taste of the many things you can do at the all-inclusive Dominican resort, which sprawls across a tropical hillside. There's something for everyone here—a playground and art club for children, plus discos, nightclubs, and bars for grownups. Eleven pools and two spas are on hand; you can also kick it up a notch with onsite snorkeling and other watersports.
Guests have direct access to two beaches nearby, and much of the activity is centered here. But the resort also offers a broad range of inland activities: you can enjoy golf and yoga during the day and theater shows at night. To navigate the resort's myriad facilities, there's a free shuttle service and convenient jetpack rentals.
Each one-bedroom suite is like a home away from home, complete with a fully equipped kitchenette and a separate dining area. Each suite includes a large balcony or terrace, which may face the surrounding mountains. Suites have Caribbean-inspired decor complemented by rattan, wicker, and bamboo furniture.
Dominican Republic's North Coast: Golden-Sand Beaches and Mountainside Cities
Running along the resort's outer edge is a beach known as Playa Cofresi. It was named after Roberto Cofresi, a pirate dubbed "the Robin Hood of the Caribbean" for his method of dispensing with stolen treasure. Today, the golden, 3-mile (5 km) stretch of sand attracts more tourists than buccaneers; a popular spot is the Ocean World Marina, a habitat for dolphins, sea lions, and other marine life.
From the beach, it's only a 10-minute drive to Puerto Plata, the largest city on the Dominican Republic's North Coast. This mountainside city is known for its pastel-colored Victorian buildings with gingerbread fretwork. Prominent cultural attractions include the colonial-era Fort of San Felipe, which was once used to ward off pirates. A couple of cannons still sit atop the thick walls of the fortress, and cannonballs, bayonets, and other 16th-century artifacts are displayed in the museum inside.
