We are hoping to travel to the Dominican Republic this July. We are looking for the best beach with white powdery sand, calm waters and good snorkeling. We would like a hotel that is NOT enormous but big enough for options for different places to eat and things to do and an ocean view room. We would like a Spa for massages and plan to be on the beach all day long, so decent lounge chairs are also important. Palapas would be nice too. Which area/beach would you recommend and is there a specific hotel you would recommend? I look forward to hearing from all of you soon! Thank You!
