The Palace at Playa Grande
Dominican Republic This is the beach vacation you’ve been dying to take. Known for its large beach and incredible golf course, there’s something here for everyone. The property has just 13 rooms which makes for an intimate experience. You’ll feel worlds away from this island nation’s megaresorts, with their requisite wristbands, buffet food and large-group activities. In addition to the resort’s private beach, you’ll find several others nearby, including Playa Preciosa, with perfect waves for surfing, and El Caleton Beach, only three minutes from the resort.
