Alcohol Beverages served Easter week

We planned a trip to stay at the Occidental Easter week and was reading some hotels do not serve alcohol is that true? I have emailed the hotel a couple of weeks ago and have not got a response.

No, you can drink as normal. On Good Friday some of the water sports and activities may be curtailed but in the resorts you won't notice much difference during Semana Santa.

It is business as usual at all the resorts during Holy Week with the exception of some cessation of motorized recreational activities beginning on Good Friday.

Easter Week without Booze would really not be something known about in the DR. the opposite, Easter week(the same as christmas week btw) means to hit da beach, of course with a cooler and that is not meant to keep pops and waters cold.

happy travels

Mike

Mike's go it, Easter week without booze would be like Easter week without the Easter Bunny. Except for Friday, a very festive time here.

Have been several times over Easter, no curtailing of the bar action, the only problem you might encounter is drunken spring breakers. That season peaks in mid March but some still do have their breaks at Easter.
