I’m looking for a resort that ideally has nearly no vendors/sales people. I really liked Cuba where we were totally isolated and the staff was all friendly. Each trip to Cuba we were only asked once to buy a trip out of town over 7 days. It was really relaxing.
What resorts would you recommend in Dominican Republic that are low in sales pressure? I’ve found reviews on Tripadvisors saying anything from people being pushed to buy something several times a day, to people being afraid for their safety.
We’ll be traveling in a group of 4, but the wives would like to be able to walk around on their own.
The resorts we’ve seen so far, that are rated high and within our budget:
-Iberostar Punta Cana
-Luxury Bahia principe esmerelda <- seems under construction, which could be really bad
Anything else you guys recommend? should we look at other parts of the DR instead of just Punta Cana?
