My wife and I are considering our first drip to the Dominican Republic. We can fly into Santo Domingo fairly reasonable.
We are big fans of boutique type hotels with under maybe 30 rooms or so also located on the beach. We typically rent a car to explore when on vacation so getting around wouldn't be too much of an issue.
Any suggestions for places that might fit the bill located within reason to Santo Domingo? We are looking at a week in Mid December.
