Going to dominican republic in june

my husband and i are going to dominican republic in june
we are staying at the bahia principe san juan
anyone tell me more about the place also wanted to know about shopping is there any big malls, whats public transport like. or are you better to hire a car.
we are travelling from scotland

The Bahia Principe is a bit out in nowhere land. I believe there is some shopping there on the resort but the prices will be highly inflated. I do however believe they have a shuttle (about 1 hour trip) that goes to Cabarette and Sosua. If not you can catch a bus or a cab on the main road or get a high priced taxi there at the resort.

As far `as big malls; unless you go to one of the major Dominican cities (Santiago, Santo Domingo) there will be no malls as we know them. There is some fairly good tourist type shopping on the beach in Sosua.

There is a lot of non-touristy shopping in Puerto Plata.
