Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


The Barceló Santo Domingo isn't the average Dominican Republic mega-resort vacation -- it's located in the city's historic and bustling downtown, where local color and cuisine abound. It's best for city explorers and business guests. 

Rooms are modern and comfortable, and the staff is attentive. There are some issues though, like street noise, that are beyond the staff's control. A fee for Wi-Fi is to be expected due to the high volume of business guests, but parking is free.

There is plenty for drinkers and diners on site, including a super tasty 24-hour buffet, a well-reviewed Japanese restaurant, a piano and cigar bar and a pool lounge.
