The number of adults-only hotels (for visitors 18 years and older) has grown significantly in the Dominican Republic during the last few years. Since 2015, the number of these facilities has jumped by 48% and all offer specific activities and packages designed to guarantee an enjoyable stay.
The only common feature shared by all is the absence of children and adolescents. During the last 12 months six new hotels have opened their doors, featuring four adults-only sections.
