Why Stay At Balcones del Atlántico

Private, luxurious, and fashionable, the villa-only beachfront Balcones del Atlántico operates at the vanguard of all things up-and-coming in the Dominican Republic.

The Scoop

This 66-acre resort on the Samaná Peninsula looks straight out of the pages of European fashion magazines. A half-mile of white-sand beach with straw-roofed cabanas pulls back onto a complex of one- two- and three-bedroom villas spread out along the shore. In each of the 40 rooms, designer Patricia Reid created an open, airy interior illuminated chiefly by sunlight. Tropical colors come in splashes on the upholstery and walls, while hand-carved, roble-wood furniture sits on a polished coral and granite tile floor. The highlights are the terraces and wooden patios, which provide sweeping views of the coastline. The kitchens are outfitted with Viking appliances and Cuisinart cooking equipment, while Porto restaurant serves upscale Dominican cuisine.

Insider Tips

Don't worry about picking up supplies before you arrive; the town's largest grocery store, Lido, delivers, and you can pay in U.S. or Dominican currency, or by credit card.

Be sure to try the ceviche and tiraditos at Porto, especially the spicy, Peruvian-style chalaca with marinated fish, shrimp, and calamari, served with corn and sweet potatoes.

Preferred Airport

Arrive at Herrera International Airport (SDQ) which is approximately 100 miles from the resort. Anticipate about 1.5 hours of travel time. You may also opt to arrive at Samaná El Catey Airport (AZS) which is 20 miles (30 minutes) away.

Hotel Report From the editors of: Travel+Leisure

Why We Love Las Terrenas

An old fishing village, Las Terrenas saw tourism increase when the new airport opened in 2006; ditto on the new highway that shortened travel time from Santo Domingo. But Las Terrenas' best claim to fame is still its 10 miles of white-sand beaches, arguably the best in the country.

Don't Miss

Where to Eat: Restaurant Luis, located seven miles west of the hotel, might look like simple red beach shack, but it's also one of the most popular in the area. Specializing in freshly caught local fish, the restaurant has no menu, but selections sometimes include dorado, red snapper, and langoustines.
Playa Coson.
Lunch for two $25.

Where to Drink: Paco Cabana, about a mile west of the hotel, has a sprawling section of cabanas and open-air seating under coconut trees along the beach. Kick back with a mojito. Calle Libertad No. 1.
Drinks for two $10.

Where to Shop: For an artisan-made souvenir, stop by Terrenas En Plata in downtown Las Terrenas, where Dominican artists like Laura Tosato use shells, red or black coral, amber, and other local materials to make jewelry.
Commercial Center El Paseo de la Costanera, Duarte St.

Day Trip: Salto El Limón, a 165-foot-high waterfall, is a must see if you can handle the 40-minute horseback ride up sheer trails. Don't leave without a dip in the pool underneath the falls. As the vegetation is thick and the wildlife plenty, guides are recommended. Tours, arranged through the hotel, cost $55 per person and include roundtrip transportation from Balcones del Atlántico (10 minutes each way).
