Senator Puerto Plata Spa Resort
Slick, breezy and, vitally, all-inclusive, the Senator is for those who want to embrace the art of a shoeless, watchless, wallet-free break. Though you may have to make some stressful choices. There are 13 dining options: one buffet restaurant, three speciality restaurants with an à la carte dinner service, seven snack bars, plus two additional gastronomic experiences, to be exact. Rum tasting is an extra cost, but surely mandatory – after all, you’re in the Caribbean. Play tennis, basketball or beach volleyball, borrow equipment for water sports, including snorkeling, diving, paddle surfing, bodyboarding and kayaking, or take advantage of the free-to-use hammocks and towels at the pool and beach. Be sure to book in advance for the ever-popular swim-up rooms.
