Luperon Beach Resort on the northern coast of the Dominican Republic is about an hour's drive from Puerto Plata Airport. The actual village of Luperon and the busy boating marina is a pleasant 20 minute walk away or a very short taxi ride, which is worth the small expense if you are travelling back to the resort from the village at night.
If you are staying at this resort, you will find that it really is all inclusive in that absolutely everything is on site for you. The hotel puts on a show every night plus a good disco, but if you are looking for very lively late night discos and bars then one of the nearby towns will have something to offer.
The Luperon Beach Resort is fairly remote by Dominican hotel standards and there isn't much to do locally, so taxi rides to towns are essential if you want to do some sightseeing or visit one of the water parks such as Ocean World.
The roads are notoriously un-signposted, badly maintained and a real shock to many tourists so it is not advisable to try and find your own way around at night by car as you will more than likely end up getting lost. Through the day you can ask locals for help and having a go at Spanish greatly increases your chances of friendly advice and directions.
The nearest large town is Puerto Plata should you decide to explore some of the surrounding busier bars and restaurants, but the Luperon Beach Resort has a more than adequate selection of varied places to eat and be entertained on a family holiday.
There are five a la carte restaurants suited to a range of international tastes. Italian, Mexican, Mediterranean, American plus an enormous buffet and as is usual for an all inclusive holiday guests can choose each of these once per week of their stay but table reservations must be made at the hotel in advance. Food and drink are available day and night and service is generally good with friendly staff, but do be aware that anything extra you might want to buy in the hotel shops is expensive.
Some activities such as golf, horse riding and motorised water sports are available at an extra cost but that's not unusual at these types of resorts. Dominican safaris in 4x4 jeeps are hugely popular and if you hire these guided tours out as a family or group they are relatively inexpensive for a full day of off road adventure.
The Luperon Beach Resort has three impressive hotel pools plus access to the beach, so sunbathing and a cooling dip are never far away. The beach here is not the typical miles of white sand in every direction that many resorts have as only a very small section is sandy. It is worth mentioning that this part of the Dominican coastline does have some rocky beaches and sea urchins are quite common in these areas, so it is advisable to take beach shoes to avoid stepping on any and getting spines in your feet. The hotel pools and surrounding landscaped gardens more than make up for the lack of beach available for swimming and also have the advantage that the all inclusive drinks facility is available poolside.
