I would suggest investigating Las Terranas on the Samana Peninsular. Large range of hotels and bars in what was once a small coastal town.

Puerto Plata/Playa Dorada Complex. 2 story shopping complex with bars and restaurants. Every self indulgence known to mankind. Walk everywhere. About13 hotels to choose from all together. Try the Iberostar Costa Dorada or Be Live Grand Marien.(20 minute beach walk) or VH Victoria Resort in the complex.

Short bus ride also to Puerto Plata,Cabarete and Sosua. You can easily do Santo Domingo one day and Samana the next as I did. Lots to do.

I love Costa Dorada Beach in front of the 2 hotels. One of my favorites anywhere I've been. Perfect waves,nice swimming, mountain views, long beach walks. Just Remember that November and December is the rainiest time to go.
